Somethings are just too SPOOKY

.
This Raya break I decided to decorate the Scrap.Abode up - infusing some Halloween festivity into it.

Not that I am not a fan or supporter of Malaysian culture and festivity - with Raya and Deepavali around the same time, I am by nature drawn to Goth; hence my fixation with the colour black, my love affair with Tim Holtz, attraction to wings and crowns ... ok, I just got the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach recalling Mayan's incredulous words and tone: "you bought 100 sets of Maya Road wings?!?" ... followed by my sister's "What?!!!!!" 'Wings? What do we do with 100 SETS of wings?"

Anyway, that was also a long, long time ago ... so, drop it. :)
Let's focus on recent s-p-o-o-k-y and the reason for this blog entry.

.
Here's one:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
.
I had two lovely ladies over recently and my 2 years (nearly) 3 months old daughter said "Check this out", pointing to the plastic funnel tray just as the ladies were leaving the store.
.
.
"Check this out"?!? Gosh! This naturally got me spinning down the 'I am a bad mother' route for exposing her in the store too much. But wait a minute. First, I can't say we spend too much time in the store. After all the Scrap.Abode is only open through invitation. Secondly, I never say 'check this out' ...errr... those who knows me in person will agree that 'check this out' is a bit too glamorous and upper class for simple Val to say!
.
The second s-p-o-o-k-y encounter this Raya break was:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
.
We found a box of Halloween themed items amongst the many unopened 'junk-to-sort-out' pile. You know, the kind where you tell yourself you would go through when you are free-er ... but never since watching the DVD is considered work and so is taking a nap.

OK. So far nothing spooky about this... well, not until you are told that I swear I never bought any of those stuff and it really isn't my kindda thing/style. But what the heck, it makes great Scrap.Abode decor and was useful for some of Scrap-n-Crop.com's One-of-a-Kind Kit.

While rummaging through the box, I got inspired to make the mini album featured in Scrapbook Trends 2009 Idea Book - Mini Album which brings me to ...
.
s-p-o-o-k-y #3!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
.
Whaddya know... I have everything needed to make that Spooky Fun album!
..
O.K. Sorry. That wasn't really spooky ... but still?!? {one must never let this on to my hubby}.
.
So, ladies, I will let you know how my mini album that turns out ... oh but darn! first I need to copy last year's Halloween party photos into a CD and get it printed at the shop. I really must get a photo printer. I must. It's an essential 'tool' for scrap booking wouldn't you say?
.
Hugs, Val

..
.PRODUCT PIZZAZZ 201 with Doris Sander
.
Sept 28 – Oct 22

Are you ready to add the “wow” factor to your layouts? Surprisingly, it’s the smallest details that can have the biggest impact on your designs.

  • Innovative ideas for incorporating those extra bits of embellishment on your layouts
  • Tips for using basic tools and techniques to add structure and sparkle to your pages
  • Ways to make journaling both easier and more inspiring
  • And the Use It Now! Challenges to get you out of the classroom and into the creativity zone
.
8 lessons cover:
  • icons 2/covering chipboard/quotes
  • stamps/embossing/hidden journaling

  • punches/paper piecing/lines

Doris' past students say:
- - - - - - - - - - - -

Her lessons are chock full of information. I have read each one several times and find something new every time. -Andi I wouldn't hesitate to take another of Doris' classes. She has a fun, fresh approach that is accessible to both new and seasoned scrappers alike; there isn't a class where I haven't learned something new, or been inspired to scrap. -Keitha Doris has an amazing balance between the logical "left brain" and the creative "right brain"... both in her layouts and her teaching! She is able to take an analytical, almost scientific approach to the design of a page, and team it up with wonderfully playful embellishing to create layouts that work on many levels. And her class setup and challenges are both structured and FUN! -Nikki After I read one of Doris' lessons, my head swirls with ideas! Her design lessons remind me of good principles to apply while I work; her ideas and examples inspire me to be more creative and to add just a few more touches that will complete my layout and give it something special. I can't wait to take her next class! - Candace I love that Doris provides a fresh approach not only to design, but to the use of scrapping materials. The beauty of the pages are not the items on them, but the memories captured. -Alex I used to be a random scrapper and never thought about my design elements and their placement. Doris' class has taught me how to purposefully arrange these elements to be more than eye candy--to create a framework that upholds and honors my photos, journaling, and the reality of why I scrap... the memories! -Amy

In 10/31, Matthew Kirscht features 74 Halloween illustrations. He’s got mad skills. Some of his work has that quintessential creepy/cute vintage look, while others channel a bit of Tim Burton’s frenetic, macabre humor.
.
oh well, we may not have the talented Matthew Kirscht volunteering with Scrap-n-Crop.com but we will still be having some awesome vintage finds for Halloween in store.
.
OK ladies, I'm gonna get myself a sugar and caffeine fix now.

Golden Paints and Mixed Medium Supplies

..
Yup. Golden Medium look seriously boring in the context of the colourful world of scrapbooking... but when I looked at the colour swatch catalogue and read about it, I knew these babies had potential - despite not understanding half the description, since I was not an arts student and know next to nothing about mixed-medium. :)
.
.
Thank goodness for my self-profess shopaholic inclinations, I persisted and bought the range of Golden Acrylic Glazes ...err... the shelving unit was nice, the bottles are huge - definitely value for money and how can I discriminate against some colours??? And hence, this is what I ended up with ...
.
.
plus jars and jars of Golden Mediums that my little sister thinks its too boring to be photographed! {gaahhhHHH}
.
Well, if you think all this is beyond you - the Mixed Medium jargons and techniques - well, it is not! Trust me ... even, I, Valerie - the not creative one and not artistic one can do it. Heck! Even Becks at 2 years 2 months did it!
.
+ + + + + + + + + + +
.
Here's some inspiration and ideas here made from the ...
splash.splosh.splat
{ open } Crop.arty!

.
1. Peeling Paint technique, 2. Colour Wash and Masking technique, 3. Moulding Paste textures technique, 4. Peeling Paper technique

SnC's September Crop.Arty

.
Whoa..hooo! We completed TWO mixed-medium projects during our splash.splosh.splat { open } Crop.arty last 12th September 2009 at Scrap-n-Crop.com - a BIG feat considering we had TWO late comers {deceived by the GPS! lol} and none of the participants had experience in mixed-medium projects.
.
As promised, protected by our aprons, we got down dirty and messy ...
.
.
to the greatest delight of Becky, our LAST minute youngest participant who forced her way through ... and errr... did an amazing job! (seriously - I am not saying it coz she's my baby girl!)
.
.
Working with many techniques such as canvas prep with gesso, texture painting with tissue and moulding paste, crackling, antiquing with distress ink, antiquing with acrylic paint, antiquing with alcohol ink, peeling paper, peeling paint, distressing and colour wash and finally putting everything together - collage, our participants had a blast experimenting with all the various jars and bottles of paint, paste, squirts, sprays, glimmer, glitter, liquid etc in the Scrap.Abode.
.
.
And now {drum roll please ....} - THIS IS A PROUD MOMENT - the finished projects by our amazing ladies!!!
.
Canvas Collage Art on Accordion Tin Album
.
Techniques used:
canvas prep, texture painting 1, crackling, antiquing with distress ink, antiquing with acrylic paint, antiquing with alcohol ink, and finally putting everything together - collage.

.
.
Canvas Book Cover / Art Journal
.
Techniques used:
canvas prep, texture painting 2, peeling paper, peeling paint, distressing and colour wash.

.

.
Thanks ladies for such a delightful afternoon!!!
Hope you had as much fun as I did and enjoyed the discovery process...

Hugs,
Val & Penelope
