"My ART Journal's Title Page" for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #182: Anything with Ink or Paint

I really wanted to dip my hands into
inks and paints and what best to do this
than having or jumpstarting myself on
Art Journals.

I had this notebook from the BenCab Museum since
last December Baguio vacation and thought it best
to utilize the said notebook for such project.

This week's challenge #182 is sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy and
I just love the sheets of digital images that came in.

I utilized the digital image found on the top center of
my Title page of my Art Journal.
Here it is:



 . . . a play with various stamps (wooden and acrylic);
pigment inks; distressed inks; Faber Castelle pens; gel pens;
metallic pens and doodlings plus my handwriting
thrown all in on this wonderful and glorious title page of mine.

Randomly drawn winner of the challenge wins a 2 sheets of
digital images from Whoopsi Daisy.
So, hurry!  Drop by Kaboodle Doodles for this week's challenge.


Yours truly,

Another ATC from an international trade . . .

For now, this is the last set of ATCs I'm sharing for
the month of July 2013.

Still with atcsforall,
I had been waiting for this one for quite some time
had not it been to an uncontrollable circumstance
on the part of my ATC sender.

I have entered in a PIF trade and here's
the ATC I did receive:

from Melissa Hayes
such wonderful use of pens and doodlin


Here's a set of ATCs I received for a trade with
a fellow Filipino in the local community.
Trade was dealt within the international atc trading site
where her ATC collections are shown:

from Jona Panesa
her series of collage ATCs


Here's what I sent over to Jona:
 (unfortunately, I wasn't able to take photos of
the set of ATCs I sent to her.
These were already enclosed in the package
before I could even remember to snap a photo of
both my ATCs for her)

It's the very 1st Collage ATC I ever created 
(she challenged me to make one LOL) &
she did asked me to pair it with one of my digital ATCs.  

I've added a welcome gift too for her as
being part of my design team at
Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog. =)

On joining . . . Postcrossing.com

I would have wanted to share the news of
my joining Postcrossing.com with
a blogpost complete with a photo of
my 1st postcard received as a postcrosser
from the site.

I've joined last week of June 2013 only a few
days after I joined atcsforall.

Had it not dawned upon me that my mailing address
had only been sent out to a random postcrosser only
after I received confirmation that 1 of my sent postcards
had been acknowledged received in the Postcrossing.com system,
it would have taken more time for me to share this news to everyone.

For now, I only have to share photos of the 
1st batch of 5 postcards I've sent.

I have to admit that I did hoard the postcards depicting
anything Filipiniana at the nearest Papelmelrotti store.

It was the first thought I had when I entered the store
specifically when I saw the postcard design.

I would have gone to Intramuros granted mobility and
convenience of transport is given and granted going on
with a relaxed  . . . non-stressed disposition . . . 
to look for specialty postcards.

Now, wondering where else could I find postcards that
would be a delight to my fellow postcrossers I'll be
sending postcards too. . . 

So far, the above designed postcards above are still
within the specifics of the postcrossers I've randomly
been assigned to send to.

Started to worry about where to find more variety of
specialty postcards when I received an offer for a direct postcard swap 
with special requests for postcards for me to send.

Wish me luck!!  . . .

My 1st Received ATC from an international ATC trading site

I've recently joined an international ATC trading site
atcsforall
with a little prodding from a local ATC swap mate
last June 2013.

I readily took the plunge and arranged for a number of
private trades.
And am glad to share with you today,
my 1st received ATC from a personal trade at the said venue.

It's from Thailand with an Indonesian (a fellow Filipina), Mrs. Suselo. =)
Here's her ATC print:
(a commemmorative edition)

Here's what she chose from my ATCs in my collection:

"K Monogram" Card for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #181: Anything Goes

I did fancy a Monogram card,
stationary set or even a handbag with it.

So, for this week's Anthing Goes Challenge
I created a "K" Monogram square card:

With a Floppy Latte's letter "K" or monogram digital image,
I was all set to go with a handmade monogram card.
I added a heart doily, some cupcake toppers, chipboards,
flowers and some coloring with Faber Castel and my card is complete:

Randomly chosen winner receives $6 GC from Floppy Latte.
So, hurry drop by Kaboodle Doodles for this week's challenge.

My 1st Creative Pay-It-Forward (PIF) received . . .

At the start of 2013,
lots have posted of a Creative Pay-It-Forward Activity.

I guess I joined and posted one also on my FB status.
Luckily. . . . lol, I had 2 PIF who signed-up and I had finally 
completed sending something crafty and creative to the (2) ladies:

Jona Panes & Louella Mae Aliermo

Now, I'm waiting for the day that I would be surprised by those
with whom I've signed up for a PIF.

So far, I've received something crafty from Jona Panesa
(1 of 5 or was it 6 with whom I've signed up for a PIF).

Here's what Jona sent in:

some wonderful set of tags and a handmade card


 Thanks and regards,
