L/O - Dream Big

Paper: MME In Bloom, Stella Rose,  Bazzil cardstock
Others: Daisy punch, EK Retro flower punch (various sizes), MS border punch, MFT Flourish die, doily, TH distress ink pad, gesso, air-dried superlite clay, angel silicone mould.

I have a fun time creating all the handmade embellishments. I bought a silicone mould from a bakery supplier and used it to make the angel embellishment with air-dried superlight clay. At first, I air-dried it by putting near a window with lots of sunshine and left overnight in the room but it did not dried thoroughly enough and had difficulty getting the clay out from the silicone mould. After that, I tested frozen it in the freezer for about 12 hours and voila, the clay dried and had hardened enough to be easily taken out from the mould! Easy peasy!

I was inspired by Danielle's layout using only 1 photo and the minimal embellishment at the corner of the photo.

L/O - Free...zing...Yum moment..

materials: MME Whirly Bird (background) and Lucky In Love, TH Tea-Dye distress ink,
 Memento Rich Cocoa, bling, staple, wood veneer embellishment, Pelikan Plaka matte paint

wood veneer boy embellishment and using
 stationery item ie.staple 

after: coloured embellishment with
Pelikan Plaka matte paint
before: wood embellishment

I struggle with making this layout mainly due to colour coordination with the patterned paper. The MME Lucky In Love kit set papers are mostly very 'busy' and I ended up pulling out stacks upon stacks of all my MME papers to find the coordinating colour. I think I spent almost two days for that.

I bought this wood embellishment from a cheap D.I.Y shop and love the simple design. I coloured it with Pelikan Plaka paint which I bought 3 or 4 years ago..(never know why I bought them in the first place besides the reason being they were on highly discounted price during warehouse!)

Picture of my son having his ice-cream which came free with some KFC meal set purchase. He enjoyed it till to the very last drop.

Done this layout based on sketch by Stuk?! Sketches challenge blog

I am participating in the following challenges:
  1. Stuck?! Sketches - 15 June'14 sketch
  2. Frosted Design Friday Challenge - Bingo ( I use the N column - wood veneers, office supply 'staple', word 'Free', distressing, patterned paper background)
