Make Things Happen

Hey Kessy and Abbey Sy collaborated to come up with a beautiful washi tape design and they launched it last December 13, 2014.

Apart from functionality, this washi tape delivers a message apt for all dreamers out there: MAKE THINGS HAPPEN TODAY.

 

To kick-off the launch, Abbey shared her lettering journey as well as some insights and tips to start making things happen. What stuck to my mind was this: MAKE TIME. Having a day job and spending weeknights/weekends doing calligraphy, I feel that 24 hours in a day is not enough. BUT, since I love calligraphy (and going on adventures), it is only fair to ALWAYS make time for the things I love to do.  Balance is important. In terms of crafts/hobbies, if you don't make time to do it or to practice, there will be no progress.

Now off to the messy part of the launch: Shrink art and Designing ceramics! Each participant was given a Make Things Happen washi tape, shrink art plastic, ceramic bowl or mug, and a Zig marker. 

Here are snippets during the craft gathering x washi tape launch. Meet the crazy and messy bunch!

Of course I wouldn't miss taking a photo of these ceramic bowls painted by Tippy of Googlygooeys. She never fails to come up with beautiful and colourful works! <3

Forgive my lack of on-the-spot creativity. My love for the ocean made me paint another sea/water related artwork. Also, I wrote my fave line "Live Free" for my shrink art!  My talented seat mate Jamie Catt gave me her gold/magenta botanical shrink art. SO BEAUTIFUL <3

It was so much fun meeting new people and making new friends at this Craft Gathering x Washi Tape Launch. Thanks Mansy for inviting me <3

10 Days of Party

(BACKLOG) Right after #10DaysOfHeartaches, Imma (@dyosaimma) and Fozzy (@thefozzybook) tagged us in the #10DaysOfParty challenge! For 10 days, we are supposed to write some lines from party or dance songs. I chose to write songs which are pretty much hit party/dance/techno music back in the 90s - this time using brush more than dip pens. Here are my entries:
