Papercut + Watercolor

Happy Holidays!

I had some down time during Christmas break (by down time, I mean one free afternoon) so I finally had the chance to bring out my first ever watercolor paint set I bought a few weeks ago. I have zero training on painting, so please be nice. 🙂

Anyway… These are my latest papercuts, with watercolor-painted back material.

They’re not so bad, right (I hope)?
I badly need/ want to attend a workshop on Watercolor Painting, though. That’s definitely on my list of to-do’s for 2015. This year has been a year of firsts. I had a blast. Here’s wishing 2015 would be an even better one.

Cheers, everyone! 🙂

Awesome and Awesomer

Yey! My first post for 2014! And what better way to start than to give you a little reminder from yours truly. I wanted to stress it enough so I made two! Haha! Well, actually, I’ve made the first one months ago. You can find the original blog post here.

I’m actually planning to make more of these. A series of papercuts perhaps after my Wild Child series — which reminds me, I have one more papercut to share for that series, but maybe on another day.

So, which one’s your favorite? Let me know through your comments 😉

2014 Can Only be Better

For most of us, particularly here in the Philippines, 2013 has been a rough year. This was the year that brought us face-to-face with the most devastating tragedy as of yet — the destruction brought about by typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan). The entire country is still coping, and it might take a while before we can actually get back on our feet. But while some may think that 2013 has been nothing but good, I beg to disagree. This has also been a year of good-naturedness, generosity and camarederie. All of these we witnessed when nations came together and put disputes aside to help those affected by the typhoon. Their acts of kindness, whether small or big, are treasured and we’ll be forever grateful for them.

As 2014 unfolds, we can only wish for better things for us. We have proven the world that we remained strong in the aftermath of the storm, it’s now time to prove to ourselves that we can go back to what we’ve once been — or better yet, be a better version of ourselves.

With that, I wish all of you a ridiculously amazing 2014!

Love,
Wendy 😉

The Moon and the Stars

I’ve been locked up in my room all day today. Being a Saturday and the start of a long weekend, I had the liberty to wake up late, lay on my bed lazily while watching a movie, and organize my washi and paper tape collection. 20131228-165727.jpg I figured since I’ve been making my projects for two days straight, I needed some time off. Even just for today. Speaking of projects, I think I may have framed my favorite project as of yet. This is a commissioned artwork for a friend whom I’ve done plenty of papercuts for before. 20131228-170301.jpg I just love the effect the double-glass frame makes on the papercut, don’t you agree? I think I’m gonna buy more from where it came from. 20131228-170316.jpg I love the message too! Sending everyone an early New Year’s greeting! Here’s another one who’d also like to send her well wishes 🙂 20131228-170635.jpg
