Little Red Market III


Just wanna drop in to say hello, and to wish all of you well because it's been a while since my last update here, haha :) I've been keeping myself busy with various illustration projects, planning for new items and also preparing for this market. It'd be the last market this year so most of the stalls are offering their items for holiday season (it's all about gifts and colours)!

Here are some of the photos I've taken during that day.
So cute, look at those happy faces!

And here's my stall display. I'm keeping them very simple and minimal this time.
And here's a little sneak peak at some of the new items (coming soon)!

DIY Light Box

I wanted to set up a small light box in my house so I can take photos whenever I want, regardless the time (afternoon or midnight) and the weather. The natural light creates beautiful photos, but working full time during the weekdays unable me to take photos unless it is weekend (and that depends on the weather too!).

Then I found this DIY light box HERE. The setup is pretty easy and doesn't cost me too much. Most of the materials you can found at bookstores or supermarket.
In the progress of reshooting Whimsy Whimsical stickers for consistency.
Testing on the washi tapes I've just bought.
Love the effect :)

Craft : Embroidery Project

Lately I've given myself a simple project, just a break from my daily routine. The method is simple: embroidery on paper (now you know how much I'm into it since my last post on Father's Day card, haha). And I was thinking about triangle garlands with autumn colors :)

The paper that I'm going to use in the project must be sturdy and not easy to break. So I picked a watercolor paper with 300gsm thickness. The paper is off white with a nice texture. First I need to make the holes on the paper with a needle so that the embroidery process will be easier later. I clipped a graph paper at the back as a guide for my triangle garland patterns.
Poking the needle through the sturdy paper on a pillow will make things easier. A thimble helps a lot too!
The colors that I've picked are: tangerine, brown, maroon, dark grey, mint and saffron. I wanted to do it randomly so I started with one color then slowly blended in with the rest of colors.
I'm still working on it :)
