October is here and I love the crisp cool weather after the long sticky humid hot summer months. And I've been busy preparing Ztampf! latest brews - check them out:

Have fun printing and sticking these Potionous Labels to any containers you can think of!

You'll be forgiven if you think these naughty Monsteraghost are charming - they will sure be very excited to adorn your pages with their dramatic antics! Invite them over and set them loose for maximum ztampfuntastic Halloween!

Monsters are not your thing? How about these cool Poltergeist Overlays? They are so versatile you can use them on outer-space/galactica/satrwars/startrek/science-fiction/lab experiments types of projects too!

Shroud Overlays are more understated, and yet dramatic. Cool and mysterious with delicate beauty that nonetheless deathly... Provided in Cool, Warmn and Hot tones for versatility. Imagine the many possibilities to use these to create interesting and unique effects on your pages!

These work best with very dark backgrounds such as Shades of Black PaperPack, Tempest PaperPack and the papers in Ghostown and Haunting Pirates.

See what Lynn has made using the Monsteraghost, Poltergeist and Shroud packs - spooky cool eh! She also uses items from Haunting Pirates and Ghostown. How would you use them yourself?

 

From last month's Ztampf! 6th Anniversary Event, I found these two layouts to be very inspiring! The first one is by Anne of Alamo - it is so creative and fun: she has things hidden in it for me to find out! So sweet! They are number 6 and bird - six of each! Can you locate them? The second one is by Cynthia; it's just so lovely. I admire how she could put in so many stuff in it and yet the whole page looks in pleasant order and just very pretty!

 

Tracy has done it again! Her use of blended photo in the background, along with flowing elements expertly scattered resulting in a very dynamic looking page. Amson also uses extracted photo as part of her background and she made it so seamlessly with the background paper. Love how she composed everything just so! Her pages always exudes elegance and calm, warm atmosphere.

 

Lynn on the other hand is an expert at creating thrilling chilling pages (among other wonderful things!). Take a look here:

Ztampf! aside, I recently participated in another group art exhibition at Edwin's Gallery in Jakarta. The show is called "La Composition S├ęduisante" and all the artworks shown are made using left-over batik scraps. The invited artists were given a bunch of them to create with! I found it quite challenging, especially given the very limited lead time to get everything done and shipped to Jakarta from Hong Kong.

But I made it! My piece is called "Life Line", it's a kind of head-dress or wrap symbolizing a continuous maternal ties. I sewn the rags together to form a long thick cords with 'tentacles' which I then connect together with buttons. The piece is hung from the ceiling, encircled by a black cloth. The photographs are done using 'acrylic transfer technique' onto vintage optical lenses. The exhibition ran from October 5th to 19th, 2011.

As I was in a sewing mood, I did a simple yet rewarding sewing project which you can read in my blog post here!

So there - a little update from my personal life. Visit the Ztampfilicious Blog for more immediate postings on what's going on at Studio Ztampf! and with yours truly.
