My birthday card to celebrate Nanyang's 95th Anniversary! (: It turned out to look quite aesthetically pleasing despite the fact that it was rushed out within three days(well, the whole card project, inclusive of the prep work). Haha I must say that I am rather pleased with this little card.
I remember that the first AEPers who saw this card were Si Ting and Pang Xin. The first comment that Si Ting made was: "That is so you". I guess that she meant that the flowers kind of reflected my own personal style, which I have continuously developed ever since the kimono project last year. Those handcut, hand-dyed flowers have become my trademark now. (: And I like making those flowers, depite the fact that I will take like 1 hour for one flower(so tedious and tiring ><).
It was inspired by the wrapping of gifts - opening the card would be like opening a present. (: Well, I stuck the on the silver gems one by one...it is supposed to give the card more detail and a more decorative, finished look! (: It also made the card look more pretty I guess (:
MY PREP WORK(Arranged in order) :
Mindmap: The typical first page of my prep work for every assignment. -.- Well, it is to crack my brain for ideas and to sort out the ideas in a neater way. I realise that throughout these 4 years, I have developed a distinctive style for my mindmap! (:
website to view many more beautiful paper crafts and cards!!! :D
Haha, composition. It is also an essential part of every prep work.
Now, it is being displayed at the art gallery, on one of the walls. It is displayed along with the birthday cards of fellow AEPers! (: I feel that each card reflects one's individual style and even though the purpose of the cards are the same, it is the different styles that makes each and every card unique and special in their own way! :D It is somewhat like a reflection of our personal identity and artistic style, which we have developed throughout the 4 years in AEP.
