Words & Paintery and Blue Fern Studios October Challenge: WINTER SMILE


Hi Guys!

I'm back to share a layout which I named it 'Winter Smile'. 
I guess living in Singapore, a tropical country in Southeast Asia with only sunshine and rain, I'm always very fascinated with snow and cold weather. In fact as I am writing this, I will be off to airport for a trip to South Korea shortly after I post this *insert SQUEAL*!

My layout was inspired by both Words & Paintery and Blue Fern Studios October Challenge.



Words & Paintery Challenge runs till 15 November and this month's sponsor is none other than UmWow Studios! For more information, click HERE!


Blue Fern Studios' Challenge will run till the end of month, there are certain rules to the challenge, for more information, click HERE!

Here's my take on both challenge!

As you can see, it's slightly different from the sketch.
As the BFS challenge required participants to use their chipboards or their papers, I had to make some adjustments since I had limited supplies of their products. I also believe with the limited supplies, that's when one's creativity would run wild!

I had altered their patterned paper with water colour so that it has a blue tint as well as to cut their chipboard into half so that it looks as if it extended from the photo.

I had used white embossing powder to emboss the chipboard so that it's pure white and will not be tainted with the mediums I was using.



I had used die cuts from Simon Says Stamp snowflakes dies as well as Heidi Swapp's sentiments die cuts which I brushed on a coat of Wink of Stella before putting on a coat of glossy accent.


I had used assorted flowers from Prima Marketing, Petaloo and some from random sources which I collected overtime.



Last but not least, I added sentiments using Tim Holtz stickers at the corner of the layout as a finishing touch.

Cheers everyone!
