💍#DIYbride is back with a handmade and handpainted, mixed media wedding ring box all ready for our 👰#justinshialynn day happening this weekend! The stones on the rings are Citrine, our November birthstones 😘
.
// Quick #TACdiy //
• Dismantle the box.
• Apply base/background colour. For this, I used #JoSonja paints.
• Dry brush a dark brown layer with some white here and there.
• Use wood stain gels for distressed look.
• Glue down the charms, trinkets and metal corners.
• Use dye-oxides violet and silver to stain charms.
• Assemble the box.
• Use sponge and any fabric for the ring compartment with strong adhesive glue.

🎀 "Art is never the same. Different art tell different stories."

💝 When Renny first wrote to me, she enquired about the mini mandala canvas but wanted to know if we could switch it to a 🍃nature theme instead. I said yes right away! Sometimes we do that for our students, because in a big picture, these requests challenges me as a facilitator: To  breakthrough creative boundaries and to encourage creative making.

🤓Supermom found some of her old stash from her #stabilomy days. When I was growing up, I was surrounded with Stabilo products. I started using calligraphy pens at the age of 9. 😂Kinda' wished I practiced more, why didnt I! I guess growing up with a stationery brand was probably how I grew to appreciate stationeries.
.
🙆‍♀️Apart from arts craft stores, stationery shops are my playground! Who's with me?!
😍 These pens are really old, check out the packaging!

✏Share with me: What stationery brand did you used most growing up?

🤹‍♀️Eventhough #theartsycraftsy started off as a blogging business, community growing has always been the objective. But it isnt enough to just promote the Malaysian creative community, and it isnt enough to publish DIY/Craft tutorials. 🖌That's how I decided to start offering craft workshops, to cultivate creative living + making. It made sense to share the love for creativity with activities and teaching. To talk it, one must be able to walk it.
.
👩‍🎨Meeting these duo yesterday for a private Birthday special mini craft workshop certainly reminded me on why I am on this path, and that it is all about {quality not quantity}. More importantly, connecting with my community and seeing BIG happy smiles and laughters!
.
🎂 So glad you enjoyed yourselves @_RennyTan_  and Ben

// Make, Make, Make //
💪Just like hitting the gym and working out, creative making helps us maintain a balanced mind, body and soul.
.
👩‍🎨With painting or ✂️crafting, you will learn to be kinder to yourself by breaking through boundaries (a.k.a less of a control freak😂).
.
🌈Did you know there's a lot of inner work involved when it comes to art? It teaches us to centre ourselves and remind us to appreciate the little things in life that we tend to overlook.
.
🤹‍♀️When you learn to cherish the little things, you will learn to appreciate your community too. After all, it all starts with ourselves.
🌈So, what have you been making?

The #justinshialynn day is next weekend! Feels like only yesterday I just started on my wedding plans and when I tried on my first gown. When I visited #preciousweddingmy, I shared with them about my body frame to get the right dress, as mentioned in my previous post. 🤓See my other extravaganza dress here 👉#TACweddingjournal

♡ Hourglass - A-Line / Column dress
♡ Tall & Thin - Trumpet / Column dress
♡ Petite - A-Line / Empire dress

♡ Pear - A- Line / Ball Gown dress

// Are faux flowers tacky? //
.
⚘Not at all. You can do so much with fake flowers. I used to think how unoriginal it is to decorate or craft with fake flowers until I had to DIY my wedding decors and corsages on a budget.
.
📌@pinterest is filled with all sorts of fake flower ideas and tutorials, especially how you can combine it with other materials like felt, ribbons, glass or wood. Just search and compile ideas for your next floral arrangement project.
.
🌷Looking for fake flowers? Try places like #kaisonmalaysia or #ikea, or any other home decor stores for your flowers.
.
🥀So, what type of flowers do you like? 😁
