    I love coloring on postcards. Reason being after I finish each piece I have a nice one to post to my penpal. This one is done using Colleen color pencils and white pen.

    It took me a few days just to finish one postcard as I keep getting distracted with house chores and my children.

    I bought this postcards for coloring from bookdepository.com. Usually each pack will have about 20 different pictures and cost around USD5. Their postage to worldwide is free.

    This year I managed to attend a Pop Up decoupage class conducted at Suni Art and Craft Studio. They have invited a decoupage teacher and business owner, Stephanie of Kay & Me Stories from Indonesia to come to Malaysia to teach.

    The Pop Up decoupage basically still use the same concept of cutting and pasting the image. Instead of pasting the image directly onto the surface, we glue the image onto a plastic film to create the pop up.

    The plastic will be heated using candle and once the surface become hot and pliable to mould, we use the stainless steel ball roller usually used in fondant or clay flower making to make the curvy shape.

    Once we are satisfied with the shape, we use hot glue to glue the pieces onto the surface. In this class we use a ceramic tray.

    Overall it was a great experience to learn a different type of decoupage. I need to practice more to be able to get a nicer arrangement.


  3. Red Rose For Bunga Pahar

    It’s been a while since I made a complete set of bunga pahar for a wedding. This time I made this from the bunch of artificial roses I have in my craft room. It’s for a friend’s brother’s wedding in March.

    The initial plan was to just use whatever leftover ribbons I have but I was short for a few rolls. I was shocked to see the new pricing for bunga telur materials in the market. I guess with the currency exchange rate and the downfall of Malaysian Ringgit value, this price hike is just inevitable..sigh!

    Anyway, I just can’t wait to see how this red rose bunga pahar will look like on the pelamin. Will update once I managed to get a picture or two from the wedding.


  4. Decoupage As Housewarming Gift

    I made this for a friend who is moving in into her new home.

    I bought some new paint from ebay last month after watching the demo on YouTube. The paints are from LuminArte Silks acrylic glaze range and Viva Decor Precious Metal Colour. The color looks really vibrant but when it comes to varnishing part, the paint bleeds even though I already waited a few days for it to dry. I guess it needs to be sprayed with fixative before I could varnish the board with brush.

    I hope my friend will like this piece that I made for her. For this wall decoration, I used the roses decoupage paper from the class I attended previously.

    After watching demo on Youtube and reading reviews, I’ve decided to buy Sakura Koi Watercolor which comes with a water brush.

    I tried coloring this page of leaves from the coloring pad I bought earlier but the paper is quite thin and it warps as I color. Maybe this is why artist use special watercolor paper to make sure the final result would last better.

    It was quite fast coloring using watercolor compared when I use other mediums like pen or colored pencils. It took me about 4 days to complete the whole leaves and the background.
