1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / *image heavy* A bunch of new handcarved rubber stamps! on: April 04, 2013 06:10:01 AM
See what I've been busy with!

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sketches from Japan (img heavy!) on: December 28, 2012 10:11:23 PM
Hello fellow crafters!

I returned from a holiday to Japan recently and here are some sketches from the trip. It's the first time I did anything like this and love it as it's so convenient and inexpensive. My sketches aren't the best but sketching created a stronger impression and fonder memories of my travels, like how my bf sat beside me on the sidewalk in the cold when sketching the Tokyo Tower  Smiley

My tools are a SGD$2.90 (USD$2) A5 size sketchbook from Muji, and a bunch of markers which were so easy to bring around.

More sketches on my blog at thecraftyloufoo.blogspot.com. Would appreciate any comments. Thanks for looking!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Ballet Rubber Stamps on: October 27, 2012 09:22:54 PM
Hi fellow crafters, here's my latest set of hand-carved rubber stamps! I've always loved the grace, poise and strength of ballerinas Smiley

Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Autumn, as I imagine on: September 14, 2012 07:51:34 AM
I live in sunny Singapore where it's summer all year round. This is what I imagine Autumn to be like, with shades of reds and gold, and tinted with yellow everywhere!

Never been formally taught how to paint so I used this picture as a guide, any comments will be appreciated Smiley

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / The Crafter's Alternative to UNII Palette on: August 27, 2012 06:54:44 AM
I'm a hopeless makeup addict and my collection keeps growing! Not that I'm complaining though Cheesy However, the individual casings of each item are bulky and I've seen Youtube videos of depotting and assembling blushers and eyeshadows into UNII palettes. Unfortunately, these palettes cost a whopping $29 each! Figuring I can spend my money more wisely, here's my alternative, and functions just as well (if not better, because you get to eat the candies too Cheesy)

You just need any magnetic candy tin Smiley

Here's the depotted blush:

Just cut a piece of sheet magnetic to size and fix it to the back of the pot! You can also do the same for brushes and include them in the palette.

Arrange the pots as you please, and you're good to go. It's perfect for travelling.

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / DIY Rubber Stamps from Erasers *Updated on 15 Sept 2012* on: August 17, 2012 05:29:58 AM
So I found a bunch of old erasers from primary school and decided to carve them into fun rubber stamps! Enjoy Smiley

Whatsapp-inspired designs:

This is a very nice building in Singapore called the Sail (also my dream home!)

And here are my tools:

1. Pen-knife (or otherwise known as X-acto)
2. U- and V-blades
3. Erasers (any ones will do as long as they have a nice flat surface)
4. Ink pad (again, any one will do. Magic markers do well too if you want more colours)
There're stored in a $2 plastic box from Daiso!

*Update on 15 Sept 2012*
Glorious Japanese food!

More rubber stamps coming up, stay tuned! Comments will be appreciated Smiley
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / If you can't have a cat, you make one! on: August 08, 2012 08:18:50 AM
Hello all! Here's my Amineko, or affectionally called Neko-chan. In Japanese, Neko means cat, while chan is a term for little kids. So it kinda means little cat Cheesy

I used the pattern from the popular book: Hello My Name is Amineko: The Story of a Crafty Crochet Cat by Nekoyama for a regular-sized cat. My cat is super dextrous - my boyfriend loves to twist it into the most impossible contortions and we'd always have a good laugh over it Cheesy
