Name plates

So here's the other bit of commissioned work I was doing last week, a few name plates.
I find that this is a pretty popular item and it's popularity was aptly explained by a friend who mentioned that people generally like seeing their names and / or photos on gifts that they are given. Totally makes sense to me! :)
So here goes..

The base of the name plates are made from chipboard. (on another note, I buy chipboard, or as they call it, greyboard, in really huge sheets measuring 1m by 1m from art friend for a mere $1.50!!) The designs of the nameplates are usually specified clients, often based on their friend's personality.
For these 3, my favourite would have to be the blueish one with the bed design! I was scratching my head on how to represent a bed and finally decided to create some skirting on a simple bedframe. Thought it tuned out quite well!
Woww. 3 posts in 3 days! I'm keeping up! Will try to finish up my project life pages soon.. I'm losing count of how many weeks I'm behind oops.

Furry album!

So there I was going on about my commissioned work and not showing any pictures! I'm really quite happy with the album that I was asked to make because it's kinda out of my comfort zone (suppose to be a princess themed album), and I decided to do something different by not having anything in mind before heading to daiso to buy whatever I could find that fits the theme.
So here's the end product.. The client was very understanding, and only got me to decorate the front cover given the very tight deadline! I used dcwv papers for the pages and found the pearly sheen fitting of the theme!

My favourite part of the album has got to be the crown with its furry edge! I cut up a furry ball that I bought from daiso and used the furry bits to lime the crown! Another cool bit was the big purple crystals thing at the left bottom corner which was actually the cover of a lip balm.
Hope you enjoyed looking at this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Project life week 7

Right! So my later was really a little later than I anticipated..
Here's project life week 7 for me, otherwise known as the week of calm before the storm (try rushing 3 big presentations, traveling to 2 different countries coupled with 2 lost passports before coming back to rush 2 big orders all within 2 weeks or so)
Week 7 was valentine's week and the highlight was definitely the crazily cute flower arrangement the husband sent to the office! :)
So here goes.. This week was somewhat lightish on the photos.. So I ended up using the protectors that had less spaces ;)

After 1.5 weeks of traveling I'm finally coming back to reality. Boohoo.
Will be back later with my project life week 7!
