Jun ATC Session @Bishan Library

I first tried paper marbling when I was quite young as a student, during an art session in school.  Never forget the fun swizzling the colours on oil and dipping the paper on the surface.  This technique is not quite the same, but it also creates colour patterns on paper. We used baby oil and diluted food colourings.
Next ATC session will be 9 Jul (2nd Thu of the month).  We are working towards a collection of ATCs on the theme of books for an ATC exhibition in Bishan Library in Nov.
My first ones for the exhibition are Sherlock Holmes. The backgrounds done with oil and colours.  Swapped 2 for Judy's and Wee Yeh's ATCS.

I'm Impressed with Kristine

Just want to show some of the stuff Kristine did since the start of this year. 
All the macarons done with polymer clay....

Another design.

Decorated her note books (at least no macaron on them),

and drawing in white on black papers. 

She couldn't stop making macarons and baked on her own.  After numerous attempts, these latest ones were the best so far. I better sign her up soon for a macaron baking class so that we can get to eat more decent ones!
A chocolate ice cream cake she baked with her sis for me. Appreciated their efforts but that's too much chocolate and sugar really. 

I returned from my trip to find more macarons!  This time painted ones. 

She is really madly in love with macarons!

May 2015 ATC Session @Bishan Library

I explored and experimented with wiper cards and came up with some ATCs.

We tried them together during the May ATC session at Bishan Library.
And we completed the baggie swap.
We swapped 1 of the 2 ATCs we made, and I got this "Love is in the air" done by Valerie. 
All About Singapore ATCs I swapped with Jessica Chua and Judy Kwek.
The theme for Jun ATC session is "Books that inspire me".
