UWS - Be Filled With Wonder

Hi everyone,

I'm very excited to continue to be a CT member with UmWowStudio....here's the announcement!

And here's my page for February already up on their blog:


I'm really enjoying scripting over my pages since taking a class by Kal Barteski. There will certainly be more pages with script in the future. I've also got some close up photos here but more details on how I used the UWS products on their blog so please go check it out!



I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

You Make My Heart Flutter

Hi everyone,

So a little while back I made a page inspired by February's mood board over at Scrap Around the World:


But I kept coming back to the photo of that very cool cake and decided to make another page. I wanted to do something with overlapping layers so I played around and made these feathers. In fact I have a tutorial which I can't share quite yet, but I'll keep you posted!


The feathers are obviously my most prominent embellishments so I kept other details small. There are many paint, gesso, and stamping layers but I kept the colors soft, more blended.


 I loved using the 7 Dots Studio Love is in the Air paper. They helped give my feathers 'pop'. 


I'm also taking a class by the amazing artist Kal Barteski  and though I didn't use a formal brush, I decided to do a little freestyle handwriting as part of my design for the page.


Cheers!

Scrap Friends Colour Challenge - Trekking With the Hmong

Hi everyone!

There's a new Colour Challenge up at Scrap Friends and it is very cool :) I immediately thought "kraft paper" when I saw this palette.


This last October we were trekking in the north of Vietnam and were joined by a group of Black Hmong women heading back to their village. It was amazing to see how nimble they were up and down the slippery, muddy hills in just rubber boots!


I got inspiration to use my Snow Tex paste from Pop & Colours 2. Nadia Cannizzo taught a great workshop there!




Have a wonderful weekend!

My Sort of Early Valentine Page


Hi everyone,

I just finished working on another Pop & Colours 2 workshop (this time by Riikka Kovsin!) and I retrospectively realized I made a very Valentine-y page so hence my title :)

This is another photo of my youngest on her second birthday. I'm feeling sentimental because her third birthday is just a few months away and I want her toddlerhood to last a little longer.... She's such a love bug full of big hellos and hugs. She is also very princess-y through and through....loves the color pink, dresses, shiny shoes (so not me!). I speak to her exclusively in Korean and she still managed to pick up the word 'princess' very early on!


Here's some close ups:




And you know what? It's been a while but I'm also going to happily join in a scrap challenge! Scrap Around The World has this eye catching, gorgeous mood board up:


Hearts and pinks, totally inspirational for February and suits my little girl perfectly :)
