Bees Wax!!
creating textures with bees wax.
using this 'thing' from g.c.d studios (Melody Ross)

and bees wax, of course....and not forgetting, mini iron!
after melting the bees wax with my mini iron, i just 'stamped'on the wax while its 'warm'

i usually use 'goldfinger' in gold or silver for my polymer clay
but, you can also use it on any textured surfaces for 'highlights'
in this case, i tried using it on the textured bees wax and it came out gooood....try it!!

Another type of Journal
sewing the cover

this time, its ALL patterned papers

final touch, sewing the button

ta daaa.....
this 'journal' is more like a photo album for me
where i can just paste the photo and embellish however i want it. no stress!;-)

On a canvas.....
mixed-media on a mini canvas for a friend's birthday....

i'm working on another one to be sent to M'sia...

Diyanah, with her 'finally finished' bag i made for her!!
 for Ed's challenge @ Laines
this time, you have to use buttons on both of your layouts
here's another one:
using my handmade buttons!

Art Journal entries
embrace imperfection

"i think it would be swell"

walk in nature parks, take a deep breath...

just be yourself

'always know in your heart that you are far bigger than anything that can happen to you'

Thank you all for dropping by!
Hope you are inspired.
Take care and Ta-ta!

So many things on my mind. Whenever I'm given a chance to make art, while hubby bring Diyanah out or while they're asleep (and i'm not feeling tired), i just couldnt wait to start!!...all the 'imaginations' and 'inspirations' start pouring out!!
Here's what i've been creating....

'beauty of a woman'

"love is like a beautiful flower which may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same..." - unknown

'feeling happy'

'view problems as opportunities'

'home is where my heart belongs...."

'just create, and be creative'

"although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it..." - unknown

'always look on the bright side of life'

love textures on my page
i outline her dress with Liquid Pearls
stencil this using Sand Texture Gel
if you wanna know how i did the kinda technique, you can watch
this video.

" happy as an angel...."

before i sign off, i want to share with you this book by Bradley Trevor Greive
and one of my favourite 'quotes'
don't stall or stress over whether you're doing the right thing. you'll always
know the answer in your heart.

Peace n Love

nahht....this is not a mess from my daughter....

its from me!! so syiok to do this when you're watching tv (late at night when everybody's asleep) happy! this image is from a pattern paper which i transfered using this technique. you've gotta try it. very easy!
got addicted, and did more....
planning to do somekinda 'fabric' journal/album, i'll see how.
with Acrylic Artistic Ink
LOVING it!! what i did here was just to drip the three colours here and there, took a straw and then blow the 'ink' in all directions. fun!

and then, start playing with this (been 'sitting' in my drawer for ages!!)
bought it, but never use it, so i decided, its time to experiment again...
i dare not use clear stamp, coz i'm afraid that it might 'melt'
here's where i got the inspirations from, oh, i love You Tube.

'her life'

and a very easy peasy 'gift'
plain post-it note pad, which i stamped 'cupcakes' on every page
took a patterned paper, measure, cut, glue, embellish, and then....
ta daaaa......
made one more for my chocolate drop too!!

that's all for now. i'll be back soon. hope to keep you inspired!
be happy, and stay healthy.
see 'yah'
Luv : July
