    (Please click on image to view a larger version)

    A friend found the wordings on Etsy and asked me whether I can make a decoupage plaque with the same wordings.

    I found a floral decoupage napkin that look really nice and proposed to her. She likes it and I started to work on it. Since the main color of the flowers are dark purple, I decided to make it the color theme for the plaque.

    The MDF board size is quite big, 46cm in width and 28cm in height. If anyone interested to custom made a plaque like this, I’m selling it for RM60 not inclusive of postage.

    For the past 2 weeks (or more?) I have been working on these door hangers. I have 9 door hangers to be completed. Sometimes I am out of ideas on how to arrange and seal the decoupage napkin on that MDF pieces.

    After I have chosen the design, I will have to sit back and imagine what kind of shading to be done on each piece so that it will suit the flower designs. Usually I will end up with safe color like red, pink and gold.

    At times I try to come out from the safe zone and try colors like green or purple.

    So what is your favorite color when it comes to craft?

  3. Decoupage on Door Hanger

    September 12, 2012 by admin

    I made this door hanger using decoupage technique to be given as token of appreciation for friends who have invited us for Hari Raya open house.

    If anyone is interested to buy, I’m selling it at RM12 per piece. You can customize the wordings on the front side of the door hanger.

  4. Pantun On Decoupage Plaque

    I made this plaque initially for a client but since it didn’t complement her business color theme, I advertised it for sale.

    A friend bought this and customized the wording on the plaque to be a 4-line Malay poems (serangkap pantun).

    Luckily the decoupage flower motif is only on the left side, otherwise the pantun won’t fit on the board..heh!

    I hope the recipient of this decoupage plaque will be happy. It was my first time tracing and painting the long wording like this.

    Oh, BTW decoupage class for July is still available. Hurry up and sign up for 15th July, 3-5pm session. The fee is RM60, you’ll get to choose whether to learn decoupage on ceramic plate or IKEA wooden frame.

  5. Pink And White Kekwa For Sirih Junjung

    June 20, 2012 by admin

    I still have a bunch of white and pink kekwa I bought for the DIY gubahan hantaran magazine photo shoot. I thought about making a more elaborate sirih junjung from the leftover of crysthanamum. The lower part which I have arranged the betel leaves (daun sireh) was the same one I used for the photo shoot.

    I found the white IKEA pot in my craft room and put it in the middle of the sireh arrangement. I couldn’t find spaghnum moss to cover the top part of the florist sponge so I have to use some artificial fillers.

    For the topiary I added more pink and white kekwa to cover the bottom part of the florist sponge. It was quite a challenge for me to make sure that it looks like a ball..haha!

    I still make sure that I use bunga pinang, bunga kapur and gambir in the sirih junjung arrangement. It doesn’t matter what kind of style your sirih junjung might be, but the essential must be included. Otherwise it won’t be a sireh junjung, rather a floral arrangement with sireh leaves.

    Oh, for this particular style of sirih junjung, I only used about 50 sirih leaves, 2 stalks of pink kekwa and 1 stalk of white kekwa.

  6. Bunga Dip Pink Purple As Bunga Dulang

    June 15, 2012 by admin

    Please click on the image to view a larger version.

    I did this for a bridal magazine photo shoot next week. This is one of the 4 DIY gubahan hantaran that I have to do for the photo shoot.

    I’ve never done bunga dip in shocking pink and purple so I thought this will be a good time to experiment. After all I no longer take custom made order for bunga dulang so chances like photo shoot or class sample are the time for me to try something new.

    A few months ago I did the basic petals in shocking pink because I wanted to make a hand bouquet. It didn’t materialize because I was demotivated..huhu! So I decided to add on more petals and assembled them into roses, later this can be used as sample for my bunga dip class.

    Bunga dip class for 17 June, 2-5pm is still available. If you are interested to make your own bunga dulang and bunga telur for wedding or engagement, join the class. The fee is RM100. Please contact via the phone number in the announcement box above or email me.

  7. Decoupage On MDF Board Plaque

    June 3, 2012 by admin

    Please click on the image to view a larger version.

    I recently joined Malaysia Rose Lovers Society since I have started gardening again early this year.

    Their first event was to launch the society to public by opening a booth during Hari Belia Negara 2012 in Putrajaya.

    I made this plaque with the society name on MDF board as a demo for the event. It was a brief session in which I showed to those who stop by at the stage on how to do decoupage on board like this.

    Later after the demo session was over, I handed the plaque to one of the society committee. They put this up at the flower arch. Nice, right?

    For those interested to learn on how to make a basic decoupage item like this, you are invited to join my class on 10th June, Sunday 3-5pm. The fee for the class is RM60 inclusive of materials needed for class. You can always bring home the completed decoupage item. For the class, you can choose either ceramic plate or wooden frame with mirror from IKEA.

    Please leave comment or contact me via SMS if you are interested to join the coming class.

  8. Hair Clips – Crocheted Flower and Fabric Lollipop

    May 11, 2012 by admin

    It seems that every time I need to crochet a flower, I have to Google for the pattern.

    I found a blog that shares a few type of flower patterns here : 10 Beautiful Ways to Crochet a Flower.

    The fabric lollipop was made exclusively for the hair clip. I have to make it really small to fit on the space of the black felt. Maybe next time I should make it bigger and combine it with a tiny crochet butterfly. What do you think?

  9. Thank You Bookmarks

    May 9, 2012 by admin

    I stocked up some craft books recently and to thank my buyers, I decided to make more bookmarks.

    This time, after some major complaint from Hubby that I made the same style of thank you bookmarks, I decided to dig my craft stash and find some new ideas. It’s hard to be really creative and create something different when you are working on a space as small as a bookmark…(well, that’s certainly an invalid excuse for a lazy, old brain!)

    Anyway, as I searched deeper in the craft box, I found the lollipop fabric I made a few months ago. After playing around with it on the plain bookmark, I thought it looks nice. I cut the leaves from Prima flower petals..heh!

    I love the rose picture taken from graphicsfairy blog – French Roses Postcard. I mistakenly printed it out too big but since I wouldn’t want to waste the printer ink and my acid free paper, I decided to stamp the thank you sentiment and make a big bookmark out of it..heh! Now that I look at the picture, it reminds me of ATC (Artist Trading Card).

    You should check out her blog because she has so many wonderful images that you can use for crafting.

    The last one shown here is my boring, same old style of bookmark that I have been copying for the previous batch of craft book buyers. Errr..I think the quote that says with age come wisdom does ring a bell. As I celebrated my birthday last month, I did notice the sudden spike of creativity in my right brain..haha!

    To all the book buyers, thank you for all your support in making crafting world a nicer place.

  10. Basic Decoupage On Picture Frame

    March 30, 2012 by admin

    (Please click to view larger picture)

    I made this picture frame as a farewell gift to a friend who migrated to Finland in January.

    It was done in a basic decoupage technique. The wooden frame from IKEA was painted in Plaid Taffy and then I sealed the strawberry motifs. After that I varnished the whole frame.

    For the inside of the frame, I used scrapbook paper and a sentiment sticker. Of course if the person wants to put any picture, the quotation can be removed later.
