Excitement

This is my entry for the White - with 1 April Challenge HERE.

We hope you like our inclusion of a sketch to help inspire you further.  You don't have to use this to put in an entry but we'd love it if you do :)



I was inspired by both the colours and sketch of this challenge. The photos were taken during our trip to Bangkok in December 2015. We were waiting for the water-taxi to take us to another part of the town for our final breakfast. This was our last day in Bangkok.

Hallabong

This layout is created for HERE :


and just to inspire you a little more - how about this moodboard to grab your attention.



Challenge. Even though the colour orange doesn't appeal to me much, I decided to go ahead and take the challenge to create this simple layout. After putting all the elements together, minimalistic look seem much more appealing.

When Zahra' saw the layout, she asked me what would the Title be. I told her I shall call it 'Citrus', maybe. No, Ibu (that is how she address me), you must call it "Hallabong". "Aunty Mimie (our Korean Tour Leader) keep mentioning it when she was explaining the fruit to us", she said. Come to show she really paid attention to Mimie while I must have been busy taking photos. I did check-up Google to ascertain her word. Thus, the title "Hallabong", a Korean word meaning "The Sweetest Orange". As the name imply, these fruits really have a very sweet taste.

The irony is, these fruit trees can be seen growing along the roads leading to the Natural history Museum of Jeju. Even though the fruits are ripe for picking, no one pick the fruits, no matter how appealing they look. According to Mimie, these fruits are under the Government of Korea's management so no one dares pick the fruit. (Hmm...in my heart I said if this is Malaysia, the trees would have been barren in no time at all). I really admire the mentality of the Koreans for their respect to Government property. Or could it be that severe action will be taken to those who dare to pluck them.

Happy Memories

I was doing some spring-cleaning when the Child came across the photo of her and her friends taken during a Prize Giving Ceremony at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) a few years back. She said, "Mummy, can you please scrap this photo". Even though Zahra' was not in the list, she and a few other friends went to show some support for her School and her friends were listed. I went along to show support, too.

Engagement Card

I am not a a card person actually. When Zahra' told me she was going to attend her friend, Sofea's Engagement Ceremony, I decided to make a card for the occasion. As always, it was a last minute work. I have only two hours to work on the card and my brain was on gear 5 with ideas. In the end, this is what I came up with.

It was a simple card where I used Kaisercraft Stencils to create the roses and the the Heart. Zahra' wrote the wishes using the Kaisercraft tag.

As it turned out, there was a surprise in store for Zahra'. Sofea, whom she knew when they were working as Volunteers at Petrosains, is a cousin to Zahra's cousin-in-law, Mariam.  It was a round of surprises for Mariam, Zahra' and Sofea. Indirectly, Sofea is related to us via marriage. What a small world. I am glad I permitted Zahra' to go and she represented her dad and myself. Even though Sofea extended the invitation to me and my husband, we did not attend. For me, the obvious reason being "I am still recuperating".

 (Sofea's cousin) and their son, Muhammad Samuel Rizqin at Sofea's house

Anyway, I hope Sofea will like this simple card.

Procrastination

When my young friend, Hamizan wrote:

"My Dad always tell me, if you want to start with something Positive, don't wait till New Year or say "in 2 weeks or so". Always start NOW". Wise advice.


Sometimes in the wake of daily activities, there is always the tendency to let things slip by until it is too late. Regrets began to set in and a lot of questions were asked. Then again, one in 50, Procrastination is a Blessing, as my recent experience showed.My three friends were moaning for having submitted their claims on time. There was a revision in the claims package and a re-submission was required. Fortunately for me, an error occurred for my on-time submission and the result was I did not have to re-submit. My claim amount was sufficient to cover the revision and the previous error required minor fixing. Phew! A rare occurrence but no excuse either to procrastinate. Unless, it a matter of life and death.

When Maremi-small-art featured making albums out of envelopes, I was sooooo lucky to spot the required envelopes jutting out of one of my bags of stash. I set to work immediately and this is the cover of the mini album. I shall only decorate the cover to the last minute because I want to create Art journals first. 


This is the inside of the mini-album and I have another 16 pages of art to work on.


This is the first two pages of the album that I had started. I must admit, I had started these pages
 much earlier but I stopped because I ran out of Black ink.Even the shop I frequented ran out of the Black Ink I so desired. As soon as I purchased the ink, I still couldn't complete it because I was already admitted to Hospital. Yesterday, with all intent, I managed to complete the Art Journal and I dedicate these pages to my young friend. Thank you, Hamizan, for the reminder.


Supplies: Envelopes
Kaisercraft Stencil
Herringbone Stencil
Scraps of Pattern Papers from Stash
Acryclic Paints
Gesso
Sealant
Enogreen Diecut
Momoyo Stamp

I shall enter this Art journal to Stamplorations Stencil Sunday #82 Challenge HERE. Thank you for stopping by.

Dragon Head Rock

It is so good to be back home after four days at the Hospital. I had been going through the February Challenges and decided to use my time to really do layouts seriously and use up my stash that has been building up ever so nicely.

I am recuperating from an operation but my mind never knew how to rest. This layout is for Stuck? February 1st 2017 challenge at stucksketches following the sketch below.


I wanted to follow the sketch as closely as possible but I end up adding a Journal card on the left corner of my layout. I have decided to journal more with wisps of paint works or artworks whenever necessary.

Here is the Layout.
This photo was taken at YongDu-am (dragon Head Rock), at Jeju Island, South Korea, when we were there in April 2015. Situated to the North of jeju City, Yondu-am was created by strong winds and waves over thousands of years. However, there are plenty of other stories of how it came to be. One legend has it that a Dragon stealing precious Jade from Mt. Halla was shot down by an arrow from the mountain deity. When he fell down on Yondu-am, his body immediately sank into the ocean and his head rapidly froze looking at the sky.

That is the story of my Dragon Head Rock.

Location : Jeju Island, Korea

Supplies: Kaisercraft pattern paper
Scraps of pattern paper from Paper Boutique
Kaisercraft Journalling Card
Doily
Paper Boutique Alphas
Lace Border from a friend

Sisterly Love



This layout is the first of the Series for the Child while working at Petrosains. Together we are going to document her journey while working at Petrosains - her ups and downs, happiness, sadness, people that she met who touched her live one way or another.
This photo is of Her and Puteri taken on her 17th birthday. She celebrated her birthday at Petrosains and Puteri was kind enough to bake a cake for her. To Zahra', Puteri is like a sister.

Using January 15, 2017 stucksketches, I came out with this simple layout.
