Those Bee paper clips are made from the stamps set that Paulina sent to me, 
and here we go the blog hop!

and welcome to my stop ...


Currently I just love  to do some doodling, water coloring, color chart journey .. on my traveler's note book  .. and about May .. this month brings various feeling for me! I just imagine about the flower blooms, all the charming of this season and yeah .. the Build a Bloom stamp set is perfect! I made a pattern paper using that stamp, cut the edges using the Scallop Borders 2 dies, and manual stitched on the top of that panel.
Wording is coming from Thoughtful Greetings stamps set.
I also stamped some flowers and excuse me for my amateur lettering .. as a beginner I still learn .. then I blow out some green paint using a straw, to get a little artsy look, and the final touch I adhere some newest sequins ; 6 mm Champagne - 4 mm Champagne - Mini Sparkling clear flower.
 I love to say ...  Hello May!!!

here is another story ..


I almost always have a story behind my creation/projects .. :)
little story about this .... I miss my son who is studying abroad, I am thinking of him everyday .. when he is home we are very pleased .. and yeah .. everything is better when he is around!
I have two sons and both having my heart but being nestle together is the most wonderful moment :)
So, the Bee Friends stamps set & dies  is seriously won my heart! as perfect as the Build a Bloom
stamp & dies, their coordinating dies made everything more easy too.
I love making my scene using both of them. 

Here are more photos in case you want to look more closer ..



I am using Kuretake Gansai tambi for the scenery & Zig Clean color real brush for the bees and flowers
Bees : Natural Gray - Yellow - Light Brown - Blue Gray - Haze Blue - Light Pink
Flowers & Leave : Olive Green - Light Pink - Pale Rose - Light Brown - Yellow

and pardon that I can't resist to make another project using the Build a Bloom  .. I promise this is the last .. hee hee ...


I stamps the flowers and leaves using Versafine toffee and color with watercolor , splatter teal color here and there as well as some gold from Kuretake starry gansai paint.
I made an envelope for 4 bar card size, cut again the opener part using the Scallop border dies, and I wrap my envelope using the pattern paper I have made.
All words coming from Thoughtful Greetings.

Okay ... that's all from me .. 
It is now time to head on over to Suzy Plantamura's blog to enjoy the amazing creation she has create..
remember if you have lost your way,
 these are the amazing talents in the hop… be sure to go visit each one! 


Thank you for reading and Have a fun Blog Hop!

Hi again everybody!

Today's post id about what I make for day 03 Easter week :)
and what I am gonna share is a stationery set ; folding box and decorated paper clips.


as an ice cream lover, I am so exciting when I get this stamp and dies!
if you see that I didn't use many colors for ice cream is just because I am a vanilla lover too.. so my favorite one is : all scoop vanilla and mocha caramel :) :)
but for the shaker ... I put colorful filling .. " if I can't find a rainbow on cloudy day, I buy an ice cream and it pretty much the same thing "  .. hee hee ..


I use several kind of my dies to decorated the paper clips
and the rest of the clips I keep them on this folding box ;

7 Days of Easter - Day 01 Close to my Heart

Hi all!!

How are you and is there any bunnies still around ? hee hee ...
I've got a little bit busy on this early April but I still want to share all things, one by one ..
and this is for Day 01


Today is about making background, and I choose to painting a beach scene
I use Winsor & Newton watercolor paint, but keep in mind  that on card making, we can use whatever we may have, if you have an artist grade watercolor, is great! but if you have school grade on hand, it was totally fine! and go with it .. your hand and passion is the most important thing.


I also make a faux iron anchor from a die cut out paper,
for more detail how I make this card you can watch on this video :

Thank you so much for reading and see you again!
Have a great day!

Spring, Spring is finally here! | Flowers doodling on traveler's notebook

Dear readers ...

Wishing you a good day!
Today's post is another watercolor doodling from me :)


On my traveler's notebook, I wrote a poem  I found around the internet and I am so in LOVE with it.
yeah ... Spring is finally here! Hope the words describe that all of you already surrounded by the beautiful season!


I just want to keep that poem on my notebook so  if you spot any ugly handwriting, I am so sorry for that, I try to be better next time :)
I am doodling some flowers, painting with watercolor direct on the notebook was pleasant to me!
and I use two sizes of brushes; number 0 and 4
A new color comes to my box, cobalt turquoise from Winsor and Newton has won my heart! 
that color so beautiful to background my doodling


I want my journal today more cheerful, so I pick an image from Magnolia stamp : Dressed for Festivity Tilda and I coloring her using soft tone color so she looks more charming :)


How can I resist from these beautiful words from Robin William ..
so, let's join the party!
Yellow, Red, Green ... all blooms together .. yeah Spring is finally here!! 

That's my post for today :)
Thank you so much for reading,
I hope you can find something here that inspired you. I'll see you again!

Easter Blessings | Faux wooden cross using watercolor

Hi readers!

I hope the beauty of spring will soon arrive, and butterfly sorely missed its arrival!
and flowers ... who doesn't want to see them to bloom again?
yeah .. Spring will let the winter get their vacation .. LOL!!
Ok, beside  the beautiful things .. the Easter blessings is the most beautiful for me!
and  all of this has inspired me to make my project bellow ..


I made a faux wooden using watercolor, wood grain stamp {from Magnolia Vintage Box} and clear embossing powder.


I just make it simple yet elegant to focusing on the die cut [ Cross with Flowers and Leaves ].
and some gold sequins will add some shinny touch. 


and for the biggest shape [ Cross with Wreath ] I am using it to make a bookmark.
I think the faux wooden grain looks more details on the big cross.


Here is the 3rd one, and this set called Cross with Dove, and really the dove is so beautiful and peaceful.

About the faux wooden I'll show you how to make them on this video :



Thank you so much that you are sticking with me here and reading my blog post.
I'll see you again .. Have a great day1

The most rare and beautiful flower | Painting on traveler's notebook

Hi all!

I hope you are in well and get the most beautiful weather out there!
Here is one of my Traveler's Notebook pages :)


Here, the city I live we got some windy and rainy days. Few days ago we got a bit scary with strong wind! it leads some fallen trees. But everything okay now .. :)
and the other unpleasant things, my hand was slightly injured so .. not so comfort to color and crafting ..
I tried to forget and because of my strong desire to paint then I have this to share with you all ..
Hope this is ok :)


I have gathered all my courage to paint directly to the page, and so far I satisfied with the result!
the paper is very convenient, and have not a problem with watercolor, so I really pleased!
I used regular brush no 2 and the paint I used here is Kuretake Gansai Tambi.
The square stamp is my name in Chinese :)
 


I also use an image, she is from Magnolia rubber stamp - Singapore Tilda and she was colored with same colors tone of the flowers and branches.


Okay, if you read the words there, yes I was doing my hand lettering.. I am so sorry if that wasn't good enough .. I will learn more  ...
and yeah, that sentences is my favorite all the time! { I am a BIG fan of Disney 's movie ! lots of my art work inspired by their story and I addicted to classic story}

That's all from me today :)
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you'll get some inspiration.

Have a great day!

Smiles .. Cute little bookmark | Mirror Stamping

Hi folks!

I am so happy that I can write another blog post here .. and I am gonna share something fun today!
I have made one layer bookmark with images and words at both sides of the bookmarks, so I am playing a mirror stamping to get another direction of the image I used.


Oh ..  I really love how they turn out!
and I couldn't resist with her cute face .. her smile ...
it makes me want to put some words about the beautiful effect of "smiles" hee hee ..



I couldn't agree more with this ..
A smile really happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime.
So true ..

I don't want to let a blank space on the back of my bookmarks so, here is the way I do the mirror stamping; I learn it from Iliana;



and I get this result:


I think, this mirror stamping a fun to do, but not that easy to explain it with words so I  make a video how I did it when I created my bookmarks, here :
