Artsy Send Off

Over this long weekend, it was heartwarming spending time with friends who have so kindly met up to give me their best wishes before I head off to Bandung.

Besides the wonderful company, there was good food, unique gifts and heartfelt words.

Thank you my friends from SF and ATC, you have been a blessing to me in more ways than I might have been able to say.

A*Live @ Bishan Library May 2013

It was punches and stamps at tonight's ATC meet - nothing violent of course. ATC at Bishan May 13

While most of us were just amassing stuff to be used in the future, Ellen did make an instant winner on the spot.

And Vicki shared her handmade stamps and also ATCs she made with them.

Of course, there were also new ATCs, including those on the theme of "Yesterday".

Notice Melissa's series of ATCs tracing all the different techniques we have tried out in the recent months?
This has been a simple and exciting session.

Next month, we will meet on 6 June which is a week sooner than usual. Do note the change of date. As for theme: "Whatever makes you happy".
See you!

Letterpress in Action

This video featuring the person behind the Letterpress Workshop I recently attended just came freshly off the press.

A Little Letterpress Pleasure

I have been hoping to be able to try out letterpress printing and today at a workshop by The Gentlemen's Press I did.

It was great fun going through the drawers of types and composing something witty and worthy of print. It was also backbreaking work doing the layout (filling gaps with "furniture") and operating the press required some elbow grease too.

Seeing and touching (the oh-so-retro debossed feel!) the final print makes it all worthwhile.
