Mixed Media by Daolin

February 27 , 2017

 

 
Mixed Media is fast gaining popularity as crafters discover the freedom to design as they like and the huge variety of products able to create textures and colours. As scrappers become adventurous and begin to explore mixed media, we get many questions about the range of paints, the different mediums and how to use them.
 
Today Daolin is on our Blog and if you follow the link, he will take you through his process as well as share information on paint varieties.
 
Daolin is at : Prism Craft Designs
 
Thank you for coming by, have a fun, arty week ahead ! Aida.
 
 

Distress Stains with Dorcas !

February 20 , 2017

 


Good Monday Crafties !
 
If you’ve been to Made With Love and seen our large range of Distress Stains and Sprays, you might’ve wondered how they are used. The colours are the same formulation and are packaged differently as some crafters prefer the sponge applicator top while others want the sprays. No matter which you choose, the liquid colours are clear and transparent. Dorcas has used the Stains to create a watercolour backgrounds for her Brush Lettering.
 

All you need to do for this effect is to dab the sponge tops of the Distress Stains on a small plastic sheet, spritz a little water and gently swipe your watercolour paper on it. Easy-peasy right ? Try it !
 
Dorcas posts all her Lettering work on Instagram under Volaralparaiso.
Be sure to visit her feed !
 
See you next week, Aida

Hello everyone !
 
It’s Aida here and many of you might not know it, but I am also the Design Team Coordinator and look after the fabulously talented Designers who create the many projects you see around the store. Stacy Koo and myself are Educators as well and helm the Made With Love workshops. The other members of the team we are lucky to have are :
 
Goh Daolin
Dorcas Hei
Jelissa Mei
Marina Johan
Jeanette Lee
 
**Be sure to check out their Blogs and Instagrams !**

Over the years we’ve seen changes in Scrapbook styles, amazing new products that have evolved, the glory days of some brands and sadly, the disappearance of many smaller manufacturers, the surprising popularity of planners and die-cutting systems. Changes sometimes have been too fast for crafters with many feeling confused and overwhelmed, unable to sort out their needs over wants.
 
If you are a crafter who feels left behind or bewildered by the many products, and tortally confused by crafting You Tube videos, this is where I suggest workshops can help.
 
1) Are scrapbook or brush calligraphy workshops useful ?
 
Jeanette says : yes they are useful. More so for brush calligraphy since there is a greater demand for it now as it is in trend. Basic techniques taught especially for people who are starting out. Introducing new techniques so that students can see the versatility of tools used etc and especially when I am being taught something different from what I usually do on my own like book binding, canvas , albums
 
Stacy says : yes. Every workshop comprises of a skill set or experience that the instructors share with the participants. The instructors have came up with the projects and have also experience dealing with the project. This is a huge factor that we can learn from. Human interaction also helps to encourage the learning process.
 
Jelissa says : Definitely! If I hadn’t taken a proper beginner’s class, I’ll be floundering. Subsequent more advanced classes are great for adding products and techniques to my repertoire.
 
2) What do you feel a good workshop should have ?
 
Dorcas says : a good workshop should have sufficient materials that allow the students to continue practicing their New skills after attending the workshop, this applies to brush workshop.
 
Daolin says : clear objectives and materials for future references. It should reasonably match the expectations of those who attend it so expectations of what is being taught and the depth and prerequisites should be apparent.
 
Jelissa says : Theory and the practical aspects should be covered – eg. why a technique is used or when putting together a layout, how should the elements be placed. Practical would be first demonstration of the technique followed by guiding the students to do on their own. A decent range of products should be introduced (and marketed) so that customers know what their choices are and this improves on their product knowledge as well.
 
3) Have workshops you have taken been useful ?
 
Daolin says : Yes! Having someone talk to you over the screen even (for online content) or in-class interaction is a whole ocean away from trying to understand concepts over books or pictorial instruction. Many aspects are also very tactile in nature so it matters especially when projects or techniques deal with issue of layering or texture.
 
Marina says : My first scrapbooking class was quite basic. It was clear that it was for beginners and I learned to have an eye for layering, little tips here and there as we go along. It might not be much but as a beginner I learned a lot of things. I’ve also been to a book binding class. The teacher was very clear and I got to bring home an instruction sheet and a kit to bring home and redo. Till this day, I’m still making my own books.
 
4) Any other points ?
 
As Educators based in the store, both Stacy and I often come across You Tube learners. There’s nothing wrong with watching You Tube craft videos ….. BUT (there’s always a but !) keep in mind these points : the products used might not be available in Singapore and there’s no clue to alternative supplies, the products and techniques may be out-dated, the videos tend to assume you already KNOW the basics and skip some steps thereby creating confusion. It takes you longer to finish a project because without any help, learning solo means wasting time and products through simple mistakes. By this I mean patterned paper being wasted, cut away because of not knowing how to see the design or the patterns effectively ….. Scrappers buying 20 sheets of papers when they need 4 at the most.
 
So what are the positives ? Learning in a workshop is just plain FUN !! You get to meet other Scrappers, start friendships based on a shared interest, find out new ways to use your supplies, explore products you would never think of using ! It’s really inspiring bouncing ideas off the Instructors or fellow workshop-mates. Crafting teaches you to be open to exploration, that mistakes really won’t kill you *LOL*.
 
As Educators we want YOU to learn, we want to teach new stuff, we want you to be able to move forward, create happily and successfully.
 
Every first week of the month, a new Workshop schedule is loaded
on to Made With Love’s Facebook : HERE
 
You will find descriptions, photo sneaks and prices of each workshop.
Once you’ve decided on the workshop and date, all you need to do is
call 6733 7630 to book your place.
 
I hope you enjoyed this post and it has given you some thought. Have a wonderful, creative, inspiring 2017 !! Cheers, Aida.

Hello Crafters !!
 
2016-03-14
 
Mixed Media is on every paper crafter’s agenda and it’s the one skill many are giving a go to see if they want to explore more of it. There is no shortage of supplies you can use and what makes this so interesting is the lack of rules : long as the piece has a mix paper, canvas or fabric and wet mediums like paints, gels, crayons, sprays and stains.
 
Daolin worked on a 12 x 12 Prima Watercolour Panel and we love how the panel has plenty of white space yet the drama of the colours catch your attention. It’s not overly complicated and definitely doable for anyone who is starting on mixed media.
 
For a video, visit Daolin’s Blog : Prism Craft Designs

Mixed media is such a huge movement now with Ranger, the Tim Holtz Distress series and Prima’s Finnabair. At Made With Love, the addition of Sizzix die-cuts have made this genre of art crafting even more fascinating. If you are interested in finding out more about how you can marry mixed media with the use of die-cuts, check out our workshops !

Hi everyone !

Scrapping a layout for a guy can be a tough problem – you don’t want the page to be too girly, yet you don’t want to use just blues, greens and browns which are typically *man* colours.
 
Jeanette has a solution you might want to read about in her blog Epitome : HERE
 
New CHA2016 products are beginning to arrive at the store and they are all so pretty. Drop by to stock up on the latest and be inspired by all the colour and designs. See you soon !! Aida

Mixed Media Fantasy

January 5 , 2016

Hello everyone !

Jelissa

Mixed media art is a visual art form which can be on paper, canvas, fabric or wood with a variety of wet or dry mediums used on it. For example, an image is drawn with ink or stamped on, colours are painted on with acrylics, layered with embossing powder or crayons …….. well that’s mixed media ! It could be an art journal, a piece of art for the home or just an exploration of colour and textures to express emotions.

Jelissa Mei has a beautiful piece with lots of texture and shabby details. To get an idea of her process, please visit her Blog : The Art Mediums.

Have a good week ahead ! Aida

Hello Love !

Hello everyone !
 
J:001
 
 
Have you wanted to create simpler layouts but find there’s too much *space* to fill ? The art of white or negative space takes some skill at mastering and the use of embellishments to fill the right spots on the layout is crucial. Jeanette is wonderful at using these white spaces effectively in her clean and modern style. Today she shares a tip how you can add customised embellishments !

Really Lovely !

Hello scrappers !
 
P:03
 
Ask any paper crafter what they like best and many will say *Papers !!!*. Yes pretty papers are the downfall for many of us, but come to think of it, is THAT so bad ? This week we set a challenge for Priscilla to scrap totally with paper and embellishments and you have to admit she came out a winner.

The gold Thickers title Lovely is perfect for the sweet pastel shades of her layout. Another surprise are the little windows she cut into the paper. Visit Priscilla at her Blog for a full list of supplies : Growing with Gabriel

There are many new crafters today and they are keen to develop skills that will see them beyond just trimming paper and sticking them down. The basic principles of balance, proportion and colour applies whether you are creating a 12 x 12 inches layout or a card.
 
Jeanette is a super ace at layouts and we just LOVE how she almost never gets her proportions wrong. There is always a clean, elegant, uncluttered aesthetic to her work with great photos that tell her stories. Head on over to her Blog where she shares how she works with embellishments !

Hello crafters !
 
Daolin
 
*Technique* and how to add more to projects is always at the back of a crafter’s mind. Many feel they want to boost their skills in this area and would like to know where to start. There are a number of avenues such as workshops at Made With Love, online videos, books and magazines. It’s important to know the product, how they work and if they work well across other brands.
 
Daolin has a good, easily digested tutorial on how he altered the Idea-ology clock. Please visit his Blog : Prism Craft Designs.

A Cool Christmas !

October 19 , 2015

 
Hello everyone !
 
MWL:PeaceCanvas1
 
 
At mid-October it might be too soon for Christmas …… by CRAFTERS beg to differ ! We want enough time to create hand-made gifts or to make cards, and to look for inspiration for decor items.
 
I love creating small, layered canvases with die-cuts and embellishments. They are small enough to finish quickly and can be used around the home or as gifts for special friends. This piece I made has non-traditional colors of blue and you can replicate this using colors you prefer.
 
A tutorial is up on my blog : Life and Paper Crafting.
 
Please drop by, I hope you’ll enjoy it ! Aida
 

A Happy Stadori !!

Hello Crafters !
 
We are seeing another creative avenue for crafters in the form of planners or Midoris, which are planner-style notebooks. Many make their own Faux-doris, give them pretty names and Stacy calls her hand-made notebooks Stadori. You may know that Stacy is our expert book-binder and she has so many ideas just waiting to be translated into workshops or samples for our customers to browse.

A Layout with Flair !!

Hello scrappers ! It’s a new week and there’s nothing better than something pretty to bring a happy feel to your week. Layouts are the backbone of scrapbooking and it can be hard working with patterns.
 
Pr:02
 
Priscilla has a very feminine style and she loves flowers as well as butterflies. The fussy cutting technique seems to gone out of style as mixed media and Project Life alter how we scrap. She shows us this technique is still relevant and can create a layered layout with flair and visual artistry.

Great Layout Basics by Jeanette !

September 28 , 2015

Jeanette1
 
Hello everyone ! Layouts seem to be losing favour these days as other formats of memory keeping creep up on us. Many of the *older* scrappers started with layouts and with experience, have a good grasp of balance and proportion, of how to work with designs on the paper and use embellishments. Newer crafters who have just begun on this journey sometimes find filling a page overwhelming and confusing managing the bewildering varieties of accents.
 
Today Jeanette on our Design Team has some pointers of Layout Basics that may be able to help.
 
Collage
 
As you can see. Jeanette’s layout is fresh, dynamic and very interesting ! Head on over to her Blog : Epitome
 
This haze is bothering many of us, and even with this less than ideal situation, I hope it will be a great week ahead for you !
 
Take care, Aida.
 

Lovely DIY cards with Marina !

September 21 , 2015

 
Marina
 
 
Hello Crafters !
 
Card making is currently enjoying an *up-dated* version of the craft. What do I mean by this ? There are new mediums like water-based pens of the Distress series or the Zig Clean Color Brushes, both highly popular brands. They make colouring a breeze as water activates the mixing and it requires only basic tools like small brushes to produce attractive water-colour finishes.
 
Marina Johan is a whizz at cards and creates the the prettiest ones we know. She uses ink-pads, colour pens to create the effects and you have to agree the cards above are so cute ! On her Blog is a cool tutorial on how she made the mirror image of the Gnome.
 
Visit her at : Marina’s Craft Space
 
Remember the specials for members are till this Thursday and you might just like to hurry down to the store to stock up on what you need ! A range of Christmas items are out on the shelves for crafters and card-makers who want to start on projects early. Thank you for coming by, have a smooth week ahead. Aida.

Daolin
 
Altered mini books or projects made from scratch are a favorite with crafters. Today Daolin from our team has made a Vintage styled mini from paper bags you might’ve seen sold in the store.

Oddities Box by Aida Haron

August 31 , 2015

 
Hello everyone, it’s Aida here.
 
Halloween is not a holiday occasion for Singapore, though young adults seem to relish the parties and events around our city. Paper crafting brands in the US prominently feature the season and many like the excitement of Halloween. In the store are two great Halloween collections by GraphHic 45 and Authentique Paper and if you are a fan of Halloween projects, check these out ! To match the papers, die-cuts using American Crafts Glitter cardstock always look amazing !!
 
Aida:01
 
I’ve made an Oddities box and to make the project decorative as well as useful, I’ve built a box and three small drawers into it. There are a total of 6 Sizzix dies used to make this project -Eileen Hulls Candy Drawer, Thinlits Tiny Tattered Florals, Bigz Tattered Florals, Ornate Frame, Crescent moon and Stars and Garden Green.

Book-Binding with Stacy.

Hello All !
 

S:06

 
It’s a great time in Singapore for crafters as we have so many to choose from and learn. Book-binding is a wonderful skill to acquire : first the basics like Long Stitch, Coptic, the Japanese Stitch and then moving on to complicated variations. Stacy is on our Design Team and a Resident Educator specialising in Book-binding.

As you can see Stacy brings her experience to this craft as well as the rare, less traditional ability of combining scrapbook supplies and techniques with book-binding. The results are always very beautiful ! Come join Stacy in her basic book-binding workshop and explore this craft.

Hello scrappers !
 
Scrapbooking has taken a few turns and forms these past few years with scrappers moving on to mixed media or Project Life. We still feel a paper layout is the heart of this craft, it’s where many of us first dipped our fingers into and where we learned to tell our stories in a visual form. A layout is spectacular when executed well and records the moments we want to keep in a very special way.
 
Priscilla created this beautiful page with lots of flowers cut from the Kaiser Craft patterned paper. While this technique of fussy cutting might’ve gone out of favour, it’s worthwhile revisiting as you can see how pretty it makes the layout look. We all LOVE pretty papers and this is one way to add layers to your page. If you would like more details of Priscilla’s process, she lists her steps as well as the supplies in her Blog : Growing With Gabriel.

Hello everyone !
 
If you love mixed media and experimenting with mediums, Jelissa Mei has three very pretty tags that may inspire you. Larger pieces of work as in a 12×12 canvas, though beautiful, take alot of time to finish. Tags are so much fun and quick to make, you can experiment without worrying about ruining the project and you can keep them in a book as a technique reference. Gifts look so much prettier and have more meaning when accompanied with handmade tags.

Adventure by Goh Daolin

July 13 , 2015

 
Hello everyone, we are really happy to have Goh Daolin on our Design Team ! He is a versatile paper crafter who believes in exploring the mediums and loves creating vintage styled projects.
 
Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 12.24.50 pm
 
This is how Daolin describes himself :
 
** Pharmacist by day, mad (art) scientist by night. I often seek new things to see, to do and to experience. Often these experiences drive me creatively. I started card-making and scrap-booking in 2011 with little knowledge of what it was. After much stumbling around, research and just diving straight it, I grew to love the process. I love to stretch the use of mediums to create new textures and looks. Stylistically, I embrace grunge, steam-punk and vintage. However, a variety of other influences have crept into my cards, tags and mini albums. On other fronts, I’m interested and intrigued by the overlaps of art and public spaces. In my free time, I read, train martial arts (super novice I assure you), and hanging out with my bros (over some beer and shots of course). **
 
Daolin has created an Adventure Canvas and it’s in the store for you to see. He shares his process in his Blog : Prismcraft

Mixed media is defined as creative work involving the use of mediums like paints, inks, pastes and gels.
We are seeing alot of work moving from traditional paper scrapping to mixed media and it’s

Sun-n-Fun by Jeanette Lee

June 29 , 2015

Hello scrappers !

 

Traditional layouts with the 12×12 inches format might not be as popular these days, but you cannot deny they are beautiful
to look at and for the memories they hold. Nothing beats opening a full album with all the precious photos, the stories
they tell and remembering the moments.

 

From a design point of view, scrapbook layouts require a firm grasp of design principles of balance, proportion and colour.
At Made With Love, Educator/Designer Stacy Koo helms the Scrapbook Basics workshop and shares
with you ideas, practical tips in a small class setting. You will start on your scrapping
journey with a good foundation of the products, how to begin and the current styles today.

 

We are fortunate to have on our Design Team Jeanette Lee who is wonderful at layouts
and has a clean, pretty style. She has tips on how to work with patterned papers,

Hello scrappers !

 

Mixed Media is taking scrapbook styles way beyond how we imagined it a few years ago. Paint products that added
simple splatters on layouts have now been expanded to supplies like gels, pastes, mica powders and beads.
These products are available in the store and you will enjoy browsing through the mixed
media section complete with samples of how they can be used.

Hello scrappers !

 

We love that Jeanette continues to create layouts, all beautiful in her clean and layered style.
12×12″ layouts are the backbone of scrapbooking and not easy to get right as proportions and
balance become tricky in a larger space. Crafters often ask how they can get better at scrapping
and one of the answers is to practice with 12×12″ layouts.

 

Made With Love offers a Scrapbook Basics Workshop where you will be taught how to manage spaces in
a layout, learn how to work with patterns in the papers, how to use embellishments effectively
and try out the new mediums that complement your pages.

 

Today Jeanette has a tip on how to splatter mists on your layout and to see how it’s done,

Hi there scrappers !

Are you an Altered Project enthusiast ? The varieties are endless and recently we’ve stocked clocks,
retro radios, bicycles and TVs as well as the Kraft Folders and Maya Road Board Books.
Priscilla on our Design Team loves these projects and she has done lovely
work on the Prima Vintage Clock.

 

Priscilla has shared her process to help you create one clock
of your own ! Details are on her Blog, please do hop over : Growing With Gabriel.
