CD art a day

Ever since I started making a CD art, I cannot help but work on at least one a day. Normally, I work on 3 CDs at a time. It's some sort of maximizing the mod podge or gesso in the paint brush and at the same time, at least I can prep up on the CDs I will work on in the coming days.

It is purely experimental, but I just love the outcome.

TGSUMC: Angklung Ensemble

Around September this year, with the pledges and donations from the church members and The Good Samaritan Christian School (TGSCS), the much awaited instrument is finally home at The Good Samaritan United Methodist Church and so the TGSUMC Angklung Ensemble was launched during the celebration of CE month.

Artful expression

I discovered my love for art this year. It started out of curiosity that I joined Christy Tomlinson's She Art Class and She Had Three Hearts class early this year. Slowly as weeks and months go by, I made no progress as I only made one She Art canvass. Not until recently that I get to play and experiment with my stuff. I am enjoying the process. I incorporate some techniques in my layouts. Sometimes, I cannot call my layout complete or finish without a touch of paint, spray or ink. Here is something which is an application of what I learned from the class. It is not necessarily a She Art canvass, but the creative process of mixing everything on paper, it's all here.

This ended up as a birthday card which we gave our officemate.

Art is an expression and appreciation of yourself. I love looking and admiring the works of others, but I also like finding my own style and expressing myself. It is like me going out of the box.

Until recently that we had so much damaged CDs at home that I decided to make art out of it, make something useful out of it. So here goes my CD art.

And here is my first ever CD art.

Sketch time

Here is my take to Sketchabilities Sketch #59. One thing I love about sketches is that it removes the guesswork with regards to placement of photos and embellishment. You can still own the layout by twisting or tweaking it a little bit and incorporating your own style and design.

Too bad the lighting is not so good while I took a picture of my layout. All my recent layouts reveal my love affair with washi tape. It is my go to stuff right now when I wanted to add some dimension in my page. Another thing I love doing lately is misting and painting, a technique I used to alter the die cut leaf and the doily paper.

Did you see that canvass plate painted with glimmer glam?

Creative process:
1. Die cut a corrugated board and paint with acrylic paint, mists and shimmerz.
2. Adhere washi tape, papers as mat.
3. Die cut a canvass plate and paint with glimmer glam
4. Mist the doily paper with maya road mist.
5. Adhere altogether and finish of with swirls.

This blog is on  a sleep mode so better be quiet...
-ber months are really busy mostly with school and church activities and some things really had to go.
But still, I am able to squeeze in some scrapping in between.

Most supplies from this layout is from my leftover during the Scrap Buffet by Studio Azul. This time, we were allowed to bring home leftover papers and embellishments that are on our table. How cool is that.

Creative Process:
1. Use patterned paper for background.
2. Cut the postage paper from Making Memories and layer to serve as mat.
3. Adhere washi tapes, chipboards and stickers all over.
