twenty two holiday wishes

another layout using the studio azul december kit...

i love the plain canvass cloth and stamping with their exclusive blot stamp! i also added some distress crackle paint on the edges...

i also found myself amused at the hand sewing accent i made.. oh, just some alternate stitch on the border to add emphasis and detail.

see how cool the blot stamp is!

a day in the life

Altered used keychain calendar

this is my DT project for artzdescrap's january tutorial using used calendar as signboard or anything... inspirational scrapper jasmin got her tutorial over at artz.

for this one, i used a used keychain calendar dated 2006 given to me by my sister...

the technique: since the cover is a transparent one, i decided to use acrylic paint. After drying it, i mixed a combo of gum arabic-pearl ex and brushed on top of the paint. i noticed that the paint moves. so to lessen destruction, i have to slowly move the paint to create a crackled and crumpled effect.

i also used Mica flakes as decorative add-ons! i would like to thank Ms. Michelle Ku of Malaysia for surprising me with these!!

the finished product.

this is Michelle's gift to me.. i just love Mica flakes... they are like plastic flakes yet so sparkling beautiful! i hope i can create more projects with this stuff.

altered popsicle name plate

i did this popsicle name plate during a pinoyscrapbookers EB last year (2008) at visual creations. adhering the popsicles into a fence-like stuff using glue and playing with paints are really cool!! the grungeboard are swell!

actually, i have lots of these bottles ( contrast bottles for diagnostic exams in radiology courtesy of hubby) and they are so space consuming already, i also altered some bottles but i can no longer accommodate them all and so this gimmick of giving them out to scrappers and letting them alter.

another studio azul december kit layout...

"torotot" means trumpet in the philippine language. usually, torotots are used and blown during the holidays especially the new year. i loved the color of this thing and decided to scrap it.

i also plucked a real feather from the "torotot" and attached it to the picture, that way, the layout would seemed "alive" in a way...

we love our gifts

i am having fun scrapping the studio azul december kit!!! so far, this is my 2nd creation ( out of ?) from the kit...

anyway, this is also my entry for scrap inspire create's first challenge for the year 2009.

since the american craft thickers are foily in nature, mitch sy told me to try it out with alcohol inks... and this is the output. i also sprinkled with some beadazzles and sepia accents.

Altered fabric bracelet

this is my project for the month of january for Artzdescrap using their beads giveaway... we are supposed to alter the beads into some kind of jewelry.

i used an Imagination Project fabric strip and adhered the little ones with Claudine Helmuth's Studio Multi Medium ( matte).

my son modeled the bracelet with ardor...

christmas RAKS

the postal notice was in time for some goodies... liza yet from singapore sent me a couple of goodies together with the giveaways from artzdescrap... alin of brunei sent me a ref magnet and a card for the scrappinkids santarina swap!! thank you girls!

my kids cant wait to taste the yummy chocos!! i told them to wait coz i have to take a shot of it first.. the altered can was created by liza yet... and each choco wrapped in cute pattern papers too!

would you believe my FATHER is a scrapbooker too???? well, when he was in Canada, he brought these stencils!!! who a father would have thought of buying these stuffs? really, it was not intended for me because my papa love the arts too ( and photography!) and now, he gave these out because he knows my passion. thanks pa! he also had those embossing powders and slow drying inks of colorbox! lol.

this is my 3rd gdt layout for journaling junkie. head on to their site for this challenge and the giveaway rak if you are chosen as the winner.

this challenge is about the year that was... the year 2000. but since i have not much pictures for that year, we were told to scrap highlights of a certain year...

4 smiles

after many weeks of waiting, this layout finally made it to the bampop gallery!!! lol.
