CJ entry for Shona's Journal

This month's international circle journal was a bit tough for me. Shona's theme is "art", I love this theme but found it difficult.

I decided to make a layout of my favorite artist, Roy Lichtenstein. I love how he use dots in his artwork, so I used dotted paper.

After taking this photo I placed some photos on the journal. I'm interested in architecture, package design and product design and I used photos of those.

Then I added some round-shaped embellishments such as pearls, buttons, rheinstones to make my layout more dotty (dottie??).

Starbucks tumbler

My boss will quit her job to move to Minnesota in the US.
I and my colleagues decided to give her a tumbler as a farewell gift.

We bought Starbucks' "create your tumbler". I made this graphic and printed out, then cut it and inserted to the tumbler.

MN stands for Minnesota and also for the name of our division.

Hope she'll like it.

スタバのCreate Your Tumblerを買って、作った画像を入れました。画像にあるMNとはミネソタの略であると同時に私達の部署の略称でもあります。

Flowers for my international swap

As I mentioned in another blog post, I'm hostessing a swap. This is my layout for the flowers group.

I love BasicGrey's Porcelain line paper!!

We have two themes - the other theme is "birds". I will post my birds layout next time.

hair... hair.... hair accessory!

I don't know how to call it in English. Can anyone help me please?
In Japanese we say "ヘアゴム" (ヘア=hair, ゴム=elastic).

So, I made this "hair elastic" today.

materials: elastic, metal parts, acrylic beads, wood bead, crocheted bead

Today is the last day of my 12 days long holidays. I'm so sad. Can't wait until Saturday!

My Hometown - CJ entry

Last week I made this layout for Tania's journal for the international circle journal.
Her theme is "my hometown" - I love this theme.

I took this photo before I finish the pages.

Then I added some photoes, embellishments and a map of Tokyo.

I seldom use blue paper on my layouts but this time I used so much blues. I don't know why, but I wanted to. And I like how it turned out.

先週はTaniaさんのジャーナルのLOをつくりました。テーマはmy hometownですが、例によってシークレットなので未完成の状態での写真を公開します。この後写真とエンベリと東京の地図をつけました。
