Papercut Postcard for Candy Magazine

It's one of my favorite quotes ever, and so happy I was able to use it when Candy Magazine asked me to design a postcard for their February issue - which by the way has their new logo design. So much feels. Haha!

It was my first time to use a black background so it took me almost half a hundred photos before I got the shot that I wanted. :)

You can actually cut up the page and hang it on your wall using washi tape. :) Photo by @angelicapatricia.

Dumaguete will have its first arts festival this week, and I've been invited to hold a papercutting demo on the opening on the 25th! Two of the things that make me really happy - being in Negros and papercutting so I can't really wait! Thanks to Gugma Gaia and DTI Dumaguete for the opportunity to sharing the art of papercutting to people outside Manila! Hope to see you guys there!

Craft Studio

In other news, I miss having a definite, and clean, space to make things! My craft materials are all over the studio. After my Dumaguete trip, will try to designate different areas of the studio for different things that matter. :)

Wear Your 'Kini Papercut Project

Wow, it's already the second month of the new year! Before another Summer passes, let me tell you about this papercut project I worked on last year. It's a collection of papercut 'kinis for different body types. I know there are many of us who get so conscious to wear a swimsuit - and end up not wearing it at all - when we go swimming. We get caught up in this idea that we have to have abs or a toned body to gain the right to wearing a bikini. But actually, all we gotta do is to just wear 'em!

So here's to the others out there who need an extra push or courage to wear 'kinis! See you at the beach. ♡

Before Firing My Bugtong Plates

Happy I found a special type of watercolor that I could use on my ceramic plates and share to my Slab Pottery Workshop students! The paint is easy to control so I was able to write words and draw detailed patterns on the pieces.

After painting them, I let them dry for a few hours, then I dip them in a vat of clear glaze. After the second firing, they will be ready for eating and look like this! :)

Can you guess the answers to these bugtongs
