a BLAST! with Iris Babao-Uy at SnC's ART RETREAT - Day 2


Yes! We were so fortunate to have Iris Babao-Uy recently gracing's Scrap.Abode last weekend with her lovely presence (and loads of talent) to host a 2-day ART RETREAT ... I thought I had {ABSOLUTELY MUST} take a shot of her in the store despite her protest - having been the center of attention for too many hours - as she too could not resist but shop, shop, shop ... spoil with choices was her {lame? lol} reason.
Well, in any case, we don't blame you Iris!!! we are ALL a bunch of hopeless case scrap-erholics-cum-shopaholic! and proud of it as well.
Here's some snap shots of Day 2 of SnC's Celeb ART RETREAT with Iris Babao-Uy...

The masterpiece we were all desperately trying to copy ...

I mean, trust me, it's truly not as simple as it looks. And as Val has expressed and written about her personal experience in this week's newsletter, it was a lot of hard work, long hours, detailing, techniques ... every embellishment went through at least 3 tedious process before being glue-d on.

If you're not convince, here's an expression to prove my point!

 {errr... oops! sorry about that Rose - we love you! truly}
And how our own 'master'piece looks like ...

the serious detailing that goes in...

the cajoling and encouragement we needed ...

shameless amount of group, one-on-one with Iris ...

{errr... even the young one had to observe hard to show mom later!}

But in all, WE survived!!!

and sure had lots of fun ... laughter ...

Thanks to all those brave SURVIVORS - especially those that made it through TWO days!!!
Can't wait to do this again in our upcoming SnC Celeb ART RETREAT with Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious. supporters, our youngest participant (Becks!), aunty (my mom) who wants all the  Doddlebug Furnishing in the Scrap-room, me (of course) has one thing to say:

Iris, a BIG, BIG, BIG thank you for leading the ART RETREAT this year. It's a thrill and an honour to have you - we hope to see more of you in the coming years....

Lurv, Val

P/S: A special shout out and thanks to Agnes as well ... you are a gem!

Coming Soon : Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Collection

We will be working with chipboard, canvas, paper, and transparency. Art materials will include gel medium, paint, alcohol ink, pigment powders, lacquer, glitter, ink, and pearl mica powders. It will be messy - but fun!

If you are fond of using art supplies in your projects then you will enjoy this class. If you are new to art mediums and would like to try your hand at it, then this is a great class for you. This way you can try out the techniques without having to invest in purchasing full sized bottles of the art materials which can be very expensive.
