Hi everyone! I'm happy to announce that I am now designing for Visual Creations. This is one of our local scrapbook stores here in Manila and it is owned and run by Mitch Sy - a wonderful person and an amazing artist as well. It will be my privelege to be in the same team with the 1st Scrappin Mom's idol Cabbie Lopez! I'm so looking forward to this.
In the meantime here are the layouts I designed using My Little Yellow Bicycle Baby Safari Girl Line, together with some gorgeous Hambly, and a little from Teresa Collins' Family Matters.
In my previous post I mentioned about a couple of techniques I have used here which has saved me from spending on scrap supplies. I have been a huge fan of mists but I could not afford to get it in all the colors I wanted (naturally I wanted it all!). So I tried to find an alternative. I bought a set of twinkling H2Os which I use as watercolor. A set has several shades in it. I broke off a piece of the cake and dropped it in a mister filled with a little water. I just had to wait for the cake to melt and it was ready to spray some beautiful sky colored shimmer on my page:)
Another embellishment I am crazy about are fabric, felt, or cloth items. I also wanted to try embroidery but I did not have the talent for it, nor did I have the money to purchase a machine. What I did in this layout was to get some inexpensive embroidery floss. I slowly covered the chipboard with glue as I wound the floss around it. It was easy to do and I loved the hand-made and textured look of the chipboard tree:)
