12×12 – British Belle

Took me more than 2 weeks to actually blog this piece up… Ishh! A little preview was given 16 days ago on my tweet. Well yes! It’s Emma Watson. Honestly about the most inspiring young lady I’ve known so far. Her determination in furthering her studies is really something which you can’t see in many celebrities her age.

I used Scrapbooks Etc‘s Sketch 123. I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out, except for some portions. The colours were exactly what I had planned them out to be; whitish and soft. I was most pleased when I found that I have that 12 by 12 paper in my stock.

“British Belle” – yup. That just sums up Emma Watson. I didn’t use any 3D alphabets for this one. I wanted them flat. So my Studio Calico alphabet sets really came in handy. Unfortunately for the first word, ‘British’, it camouflaged with the background. Hence I roughly outlined it with a maroon pen.


Mmm… another pathetic attempt at the ‘dump-your-lot-to-one-side’ technique. This time round, I failed. I blame it on my limited stock. I tried to find as many stuff I had of that in the colour palette, but not all could fit in nicely. So yes, I just left it like that. I gave up!


The journaling section is part of a poem written by Soulful Ensemble titled, “Pretty Girl”. The strips of paper are of leftover papers I’ve used quite some time ago. I just simply amp them up with some chalk-ink on the edges.
