Wear Washi

I am happy I got to sit down, gather my washi tapes, and turn a month-old jewelry idea to this:







I wanted to make a pair of earrings for each washi design but did not have enough jewelry mountings. Hopefully, I'd be able to experiment with other materials so I can sell them at art fairs :)

Here's another Wear Washi Project:



With air-dry clay and abaca string, I was able to make washi necklaces. The most challenging part was choosing which washi patterns I should use. As always, I wanted to use them all at once.

Rabbit and Grass Prints

One night, the village security called and informed us that our rabbit had escaped! Of course, Goms ran outside right away and went after his pet. As for me, I just stood by our gate, watched, and laughed. How the heck did the guard know the rabbit belonged to us??

Actually, that wasn't the first time the rabbit escaped. One time, after we attended a fair in UP, just meters away from our house, we saw a white dot "frolicking" in the greens.

And yes! It was the rabbit. Oh well, Goms needed exercise anyway! Hehe ;)

These are the rubbercut prints I've been working on lately. At the end of the month, they'll be in the Land of the Pines. I wish I'd be able go up North and deliver them personally.

Today at Gigi Glassland

1. Something my cute and talented crafter friend, Wina, made for me. Can't wait to hit the beach and wear it! :)



2. Tried to "hone" my non-existent calligraphy skills with Aaron and Wina before going to work. I'm not really a fan of sweets but that place serves heavenly cupcakes! Plus, they have a really nice synthetic grass carpet.



3. For cleaning the nibs

Plants and Rubbercutting

This article has made me think about and reevaluate - in a good light - the kind of art and craft projects I dedicate my time on. My love for the outdoors & nature is made even more evident. I'm glad that these things and a few more which I value, always resonate in the things that I create, in my daily life.











And since I don't have a green thumb, I content myself with this rubbercut pocket garden ☼ I also made some stickers which I'll be selling during the Hip Pinoy Art and Food Bazaar in October.

PS You can also see another project similar to this one, here.

PPS Alessa and I are having a Rubbercut Crafternoon+ Garden Party next Saturday, September 15! :) It's going to be an afternoon of crafts, relaxed conversations, delish food, and good music. Hope to see you there! Sign up e-sheet here.

New Hey Kessy Washi Tape Designs

Hey Kessy's latest washi tape designs are here! I used them for the packaging of my rubbercut prints I gave out to fellow crafters and makers during the 2nd Craft Soiree :)











These Hey Kessy Artist Edition washi tapes are wider and longer than the previous rolls! My favorite are the newspaper and collage designs. It seems like everything they touch turns arts. 





Check out the complete collection here :)

Oh Hey Kessy







These washi and baker's twine samplers were raffled off during the 2nd Craft SoirĂ©e organized by Alessa two weekends ago.

PS I was so happy when Meg of Eve & Co. Floral and Event Styling emailed me photos of Hey Kessy's feature in the August issue of Wedding Essentials (Volume 8, Issue 3).

Forest Stickers

I always think of the mountains, forests, springs, and waterfalls I'd see during our climbing trips back in college. It's something I'd never want to forget nor give up. But since I don't have the time to climb mountains now, I try to make it part of my daily life in simple ways that I can :)
