So I have been busy in my art studio at JCCA working on my art projects. I have been experimenting with copper sheets a lot, developing a method to ‘paint’ it using heating/cooling process combined with ‘directed’ oxidation using my own organic mixtures. I have been photographing the pieces at various stages and the results form the base for my new Metalese Paper Pack Series. I have two packs at Studio Ztampf! right now, the newest was just released several hours ago it is so fresh! Take a look:

I created the Elemental 101 Accents Pack as a basic element kit with assorted items that you would need in creating layouts. Basic as these items are, they are uniquely Ztampf! with a masculine/feminine blend and of course, they work well with the Metalese Paper Packs (and most others Ztampf! kits). It is currently on SPECIAL  at 25% OFF Discount for a limited time. So grab it when you are getting the Metalese Packs!

It’s the end of March, when cheerful Spring time is supposed to replace the cold winter. Alas, in many parts of the world, mine included, winter is so persistent to stay longer than usual. But every winter must end, and spring is finally coming! You can just stop nature…

Earlier this month though, nature brought a catastrophe at unbelievable scale to the resilient people in Japan. So many lives destroyed within minutes and the aftermath brought utterly terrible suffering, made even much worse by man made nuclear disaster. It’s just beyond believe – and my heart goes out to them. You can make donations to help them through some reliable organizations. Remember: Every little bit counts!

On a cheerier note, we have a brand new Z!Girl, in case you haven’t notice! Get to know her and read about an impromptu outing on Ztampfilicious Blog:

Give Hope

Brand New Z!Girl

Saturday Night Outing

Festive, unique and adventurous, full of feelings and life… You’ll love this Lumiere Paper Pack with its brilliant playful colors! Many versatile uses for them: party, celebration, art journal, music concert, dance shows, carnivals, teenager, bon fire events, and more!

Warm yourself with the flaming backgrounds in this Furnace PaperPack!

Inspiration: the action or power of moving/influencing the intellect or emotions.

Inspirations can be found anywhere, and it could motivate us in our daily life. Two weeks ago, a day after the tsunami that has smashed Japan, I bought a stem of flower. It has white small blossoms with very faint fragrance – barely registered. But it looked so pretty and dainty on its thick sturdy green stem. I just fell in love with it. It was HK$18 – or about US$2.30; not cheap for a single stem, but it is definitely worth it!

Watching the buds growing and blossoming somehow gives me hopes for Japan. Somehow, this little flower became a symbol of hope for Japan for me. It is called Ornithogalum. Every day, I watched the little buds getting bigger and then blossomed into pretty little white flowers. When I first got it, there was just one full blossom with another one was in progress. The following days, more buds were blossoming. It keeps on blossoming after 2 weeks now! Pretty amazing eh. And it’s so pretty too. Notice how the buds on the top were growing and then blossoming while the first blooms are now shrivelling down. Regeneration. Life prevails. Life goes on. There is hope. Always.
