New Fridge Magnet

I want to try painting on wood since long time ago, after I saw some photos of work by folkart artists. So this is my first try-out, but the size of the piece is just 1.25 inch square. At first, I used gesso primer, varnish and blunt end of a pin for this scgrafito technique. Then I used my stamps for the text.


But the scgrafito is just for fun! I sanded the whole surface, and painted it with this cute girl. Actually we went back to my hometown last weekend, and showed my mom this small piece of wood. She said, "Draw a cute girl".



Can you spot the difference in the girl's face in above and below picture?



I glued a magnet on the back ---and woohooo!!! I want to make more!

Melan! The girl is soooooo cute!!! Makes me want to cubit her pipi....!!!

Anyway, lemme belajar belajar balik all the blogger tags. Macam lupa lupa liao all the blogger tags. I had no time to surf during the weekends... laptop kena conquer ja. My aunty sudah ketagih internet. So she was hogging my laptop and I can't do anything about it. Maybe I should buy a new laptop.

I'll get back to you later ya.
