MWL June layout !!!


This month the DT was asked to create using recycled items and mediums and since I re-ignited my love affair with the Distress ink pads, I totally had to use them. My recycled item was a "bubble" box from packaging and a bottle cap. The bubble box was alcohol inked and micro beads was placed in them to create a shaker box. While the bottle cap was used to hold a tiny quote. Journalling is hidden behind the photo Mat. And the tag was made using the paint resist and lots of inking....

Materials :

PP : Tim Holtz Ideology, Basic Grey
Inks : Rusty Hinge, shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, and Walnut stain.
Embellishments : Maya Road Clock Sheers and tattered angels Glimmer Glass.
Mask : Tim Holtz Time Mask
Alphas : American Crafts and Jenni Bowlin
Stamps : Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous

All available from MWL!!!!

This Saturday's Tray full of Memories will be the last class and I am really happy to see new faces as well as familiar faces during the last 5 classes I had . What shall I do for my next class ??? Any suggestions as to what you all wanna learn ? Leave a comment .. :)

On another note ... Made With Love has been shut for the last week but ... come the 24th, they will reopen with a newly renovated store !!!! .. I managed to get a sneak peek and can I say that it is a really big open space now !!!! lots of space for lots of stuff ... WOOOHOOOO .. will u be down ??? i know I will !!!!

MWL Mid Month Challenge !!!!

This month's challenge over at Made With Love is all abt distressing ( my fav technique)
Distress, Distress, Distressed !!!!!

This month challenge is all about distressing. Play with inks and paints, Crumple and Iron, Mists, emboss... The list is endless. Challenge yourself in changing the whole look of the paper.

You will need to do a layout for this challenge (12x12 only) and also include a fabric that has been distressed. You will also need to have 2 photos on the Layout.

My layout included Distress embossing on overlays, Lots of inking and fraying of the fabric ...

Have lots of inky, distressed fun with this challenge.

I am soooo sorry for not updating as much as I would like to these days ... Mackie has finally breathed it's last byte and has gone to the great apple heaven last week. My fault for putting mackie on a HUGE magnetic Cutting mat ... The IT show is this coming weekend and I got my eyes on an iMac this time. Decided that I do not need a Laptop ... so why not go Bigger ... Waiting till the show starts to see what Promo they are giving out.

Just got back from HCMC last week and it was HOT HOT HOT !!! almost 42 Degrees Celcius too hot I say .. but this time I managed to visit the Cuchi tunnels ... It is wayyyyy awesome ...

Photos aplenty but no computer to upload it to .. so you peeps have to wait abit longer ..

On the scrapping side of things, did my 3rd Tray Full of Memories last week and i would call it my international class.. i had students from Brunei (J again ... ) and also Thailand .. Sawadeekapp Thuy... I have also gotten my hands on some BRAND NEW Tim Holtz Stuff ... And my creative mind has been going on overdrive .. just have not had the time to put ideas to projects .. well .. SOON SOON ... :)

Till the next time ... TOODLES !!!!
