Paper Mosaic with Vicki

Mosaic ATCs
We had a wonderful class with Vicki learning how to put a paper mosaic ATC together. She provided all the materials and guided us patiently.

Don't these look gorgeous?

It was also a good time to catch up with the rest over a meal while we waited for our work to dry.

All in all, a lovely evening of creative pause.

Sketchwalk at Duxton

Urban Sketchers Singapore

The Urban Sketchers Singapore book and exhibition was launched last night and this morning, there was a special sketchwalk. We went sketching at nearby Duxton.

I completed 3 sketches and the last one was given some limelight at the end of the sketchwalk. Pleasantly surprised.

ATC at Bishan Library Oct 2011

We discovered a few interesting things from tonight's ATC session.

Firstly, that packing tape is really rather sticky. It was neat trying out packing tape transfer.

ATC Oct 2011

And then we learnt a few trivial about snowflakes, ostriches. drunken ants, man's hair parting and longetivity and more. These came from the ATCs that were based on this month's theme - Trivial Pursuit.

My first attempt at creating an etegami. The inspiration came from Debbie's blog.

Etegami (e= "picture"; tegami= "letter/message") are simple drawings accompanied by a few apt words.
