We had a really great time, last Sunday, when our VIP guests showcased their talents, not only at crafting but food crafting too! It was all hats & gloves and then we got down to the real job of sushi decorating at Sakae Sushi, The Curve. Thanks to Chef Yong, we all had a great time learning to wrap our own makimono, california hand rolls, bear makimono and even made a hanasushi, which suited our theme of the day (flower power) to a tee! It was all excitement & laughter throughout. Below are some pics in random order.
We've taken extra time to announce the winners as it was definitely one of the toughest feat we've had as the tags all came out so beautifully BUT we still had to choose a winner. Yet, I feel as though I've not justified the amount of effort you've put in for the event, so I 've decided to throw in an extra prize for Most Beautiful Tag. So, here goes:
Announcing the Winner of the MOST CREATIVE TAG:
Ms Tan Mee Foon
Mee Foon won this category because of the use of copper wire to create first a necklace which doubles up as a tag with her name written on beautifully curled and die-cut flowers using Sizzix and metal sheets. It is her creative concept us oing the die-cut tool which has won her an extra point.
Well done, Mee Foon!
and the Winner of the MOST BEAUTIFUL TAG:
Ms Chris Lim
Winner of BEST DRESSED:
(more drum roll)
Ms Marina Khong
Adorned in a fabulous floral print dress, Marina wins Best Dressed for an absolute perfect match of apparel, accessories and adorned with a beautifully made tag. Just to share a comment from an Anonymous person: "you can just feel the Springtime in her". And I think that of course gave Marina extra points.
Please note: Winners are all selected based on an average aggregate from several judges and thus, minimal bias judgement from any one single person.
Having said all that, we would like to sincerely THANK all our VIPs (Very Important Papercrafter) who attended the event. Once again, the prizes were just a mere incentive for added fun, AND to add some papercrafting element into the event. To the winners, Congratulations, and to others, Big Thank You's for your efforts and we hope you will continue to strive for our future prizes! And for PCM members, we look forward to have you join our Papier Elite Club Member soon for more of such exclusive privileges.
We had absolute fun and we hope you did too!
We will be calling the winners shortly to collect your prizes from Papier.

Hola! Happy Wednesday! Hope you are all in the best of health ;)))
I would like to share with you an altered canvas - Sea of Love. Whenever I do a project like this, I always like my work to tell a little bit of story. For this project, I have used a cut-out of a lady looking so forlorn waiting for his lover who has sailed far away. A bit of painting here and there and also cutting.
I will be conducting a similar altered canvas class soon at Papier. My first class.
If you like steampunk and a lil' bit of grunge, stay tune. The work for the class will be posted very soon.
See you again next time! Ciao!
