Time for fun, again!

It's time to unleash your creativity and believe that with some guidance and perseverance, one can make something fun with their own hands! :)

It's going to be another fun session filled with laughter and glue on our hands... Learning new skills causes neurons to create new linkages to each other making our brains more active and delays aging of brain cells :)

Come, join me! Have fun! Email me at angelicquirk@gmail.com to register!!!

I don't normally do layouts, though I did mention that I will try to do more of it ... I think that should be one of my 2012's resolutions! :)

Here's a layout I did as a gift to my Dad for his birthday... photo was taken before my brother took his flight to the US. I hope we will be able to take another complete family photo again soon :)

I love putting layouts in shadow boxes because it allows me to give more depth to the layouts I create. But I'm thinking of another method to create 3D layouts as well... If I can stop procrastinating and step up to make that soon, I'll share it here... :P

Have a great day, everyone! :)

Ink & watercolour

To those who know me long enough, they would know that I have been drawing and doodling since I could hold a pen :) Back in school,  I was doodling when the teacher was teaching... frankly speaking, I am not sure how I paid attention to the teacher and passed my exams since I am mostly doodling... I even mastered to doodle as if I'm taking notes!

Though, I kinda stopped doodling altogether when I advanced to college.... at that time, I somehow stopped doodling altogether. I think I stopped reading books too! (well, except textbooks.. boo hoo)

There was an obvious drought in drawing for many years in my life from college to when I started working.... it was during the last couple of years that I dived back into the 'artistic side' of my soul. Recently I have started drawing more and it feels good :)

All the illustration you see above are my originals in ink and watercolour. They are available in my Etsy shop if you wanna get your hands on them. They come in the black frame ready for you to display it.. all signed and dated... erm, the sheep stays with me.. LOL...

3-in-1 brings to my mind, pre-mix coffee... that is the first thing that comes to my mind (erm, cos I'm hopelessly addicted to coffee). 

This time around, 3-in-1 is a special request by a sweet girl for me to make a custom card for her boyfriend. It's for Chinese New Year, Valentine's and his Birthday... 

It was quite a task actually... I was thinking of how I'm going to incorporate all 3 elements into one cover.. and then, I thought, maybe I can make the card into something like a mini 'album'.... that will give me more room to add more elements and make the card more special :) So, that's how this idea was borned :) 

The dude is one lucky dude... Not many girlfriends will order cards for their boyfriends... normally, they expect cards from them... not vice versa *winks*

Write & Draw

Have been keeping my time busy with writing and drawing... well, I would say drawing and painting more than writing. Baby steps, baby steps... I have been wanting to get back to writing but procrastination has a very strong hold on me :P

A nice notebook and a pretty pen does help to motivate me to write 

Been drawing quite a lot lately too.... I am going to frame these up and list them on my Etsy shop soon :) Am finding solace painting with my watercolour set :)

Bright & Sunny

Took this picture on one of the sunniest days this year. Sometime last week when the sun was burning down on us here in Malaysia..

I find it quite hilarious sometimes when I think about how I am willing to go out and walk under the hot, scorching sun when I am on vacation to places like Bangkok or Bali but when I'm back home here, I do my utmost best to stay indoors especially when the sun is out! 

Was just telling my hubby the other day that maybe we have to pretend that we're on vacation here sometimes and go out and explore even if it means getting all hot and sweaty :P Someday soon, maybe :)

My Baby

Penny is the loveliest cat I can ever want :) She's gentle, cuddly and an overall good girl... she mews loudly during bath time but at least she doesn't run all around the bathroom. She just stays in one spot and mews pathetically... :P But she does like it when she's clean and fluffy white afterwards.

She has big, round shiny eyes and when she looks at you, you automatically melt... haha... But she's very, very shy.. so not many people have seen her heart-melting looks.

She loves sleeping, napping on my work chair, on the bed and on the cushion I sit on.. She looks really lovely when she sleeps too.. sometimes she covers her face with her paws :)

She has completely captured my heart.. even when she's naughty sometimes, I can't seem to get really mad at her... she's my baby and I love her! :)
