Mathemagic: Math is Fun!

Hello, Dolls!

How are you today? I am wishing you had a really good day. As I said in my previous post, here I fulfill the promise I said to share about "mathematics simple card". Mirah and I were going to Kado Kita before we had our ultra short paper quilling course. We both loves beautiful wrapping paper, textured paper and colorful ribbon. No wonder we put Kado Kita as one of the most calming place in the world! :D

We were take a look around and my eyes seen a cute numerical wrapping paper. It is more like a wrapping paper to wrap kid's gift but I do like it. I love the combination of the numbers, colors and its glossy texture. I bought it one even actually I had no idea what to do with this paper.

On the next couple day, I came up with the idea of making mathematics card theme. I remember when I was kid, I love mathematics subject. I am not a super smart girl who is exactly excellent in math, but I do love the mathematics' magic. Since I was kid, my daddy told me about the importance of math in our life. Unfortunately, no matter how much I love math, no matter how hard I learn math, my logical mathematics' understanding ability always way lower than Dhidha's :(. You know what is the part of math that I am best of? Yes, counting the discount. LOL! :p

Even I am not a super smart mathematics girl, I would like to give an honor to all of my mathematics teachers from kindergarten to senior high. Even they may not reading this blog, I hope they will know that here is their student already growing up and no matter how many times I failed to understand some part of mathematics in past, I still love mathematics as well. :)

Here is the honor, I share my simple mathematics card!

The card is made with lettering technique, using HVS white paper strips (100gr). It covers with numerical wrapping paper and supported with a polka dot brown-white ribbon, also a red flower made by punch art. Talking about the flower, I did not punch it my self because yeah I don't have the puncher yet. LOL! I bought it from a friend of mine who sells punch art creations and scrapbook supply.

Well, enough for today. I would share more post about my paper quilling project soon. During that, I wish you all dolls are having a great day!

Ultra Short Paper Quilling Course #2

Hello, Dolls!

It feels good to see you again and share something new about our paper quilling activities. Yesterday, I met my good friend when I was in junior high school, named Ninin. We were classmate on the 9th grade and I still remember we were crazy about math subject. No, I am not a super smart girl in math, but I just love it. Well, it's been a looong time since the last time I met her (maybe about 4-5 years ago) even we live in the same city and even the same university for God's sake! Although we didn't meet each other for long time but sometimes we still communicate and share some daily life stories. I have no idea how could we live a life like this. LOL! :p

So, last week she told me that she wants to learn paper quilling. Actually, I know that besides learning paper quilling, she also wants to meet me hahaha. :p

We met yesterday on a shopping mall's food court and spent some hours to talk and quilling. She is a fast learner and it's good to know that she loves crafting, too. It didn't take a long time for her to learn various technique of paper quilling. It was about five technique she learned and she did it well. She made a floral paper quilling card only in a short time. I am so proud of her! :D

Remind that there are some friends who wants to learn paper quilling, I am just thinking about making a paper quilling class consist of small group of people so that everybody can learn way more comfortable. Well, I still don't know but this idea supposed to be discussed with Dhidha so that we will find the perfect form to make it real.

Enough for today and I will post about the "mathematics simple card" next time.  During that time, I hope you have a good day and keep on crafting. Good day, dear Dolls! :)

Our Hamper of Flowers

Hello, Dolls!

How are you? I hope that all of you are in a really good condition. I got cold since two days ago and it feels bad. I got dizzy, hard to sleep, and surely I have been spending many tissues. I also bring my mini vick's inhaler almost everywhere. And by the way dolls, have you watched the avengers? I watched it two days ago and it is a really good movie. The queue was crazy, I was in line for 2.5 hours and sure I was watching the avengers while inhaling my inhaler. :p

Okay, back to the topic. As subjected, today I want to share "our hamper of flowers". Actually, I previously ever share about the picture in this post. It was the card in Mirah's hand that refers to this "our hamper of flowers". This card is already made from weeks ago but it just got captured about last week. You see any better quality of photograph than in my recent post? Sure, it was Dhidha who took the picture. Must be not me, no doubt about it. Pardon my lack of photography skill. :(
 The idea behind this card came up when Mirah told me that she wants to learn paper quilling. I was thinking that I need to share not just the very basic paper quilling technique but I need to share more. Then I made a card with various technique of paper quilling. The next question, why flowers? Well, instead of making flower in paper quilling seems to be the most common start up for beginners, it is actually influenced by my personal reason. I really love the floral paper quilling design. I grew up in a family who loves gardening and since I am not really good at it, I think making floral paper quilling are counted. :p

Jumping back to the photograph, here I share more photos from various sides. Thank you for Dhidha, my man who always dependable. I hope you all dolls enjoys the pictures.
I used some paper quilling technique in this card. To be honest, I have no idea with the technique's name other than the flower husking, beehive and combing. What makes it fun is that you can explore more technique in paper quilling so that it can encourages you to be more creative. By the way, I love the black background. I always love the black background because you can put any colors and the colors seems "alive" on it. I used cyber and deep color of spectra paper (80gsm) as the strip and black manila paper (100gsm) as the background.
Hope you have a good day, dolls and please wish me to get health soon. I don't want to deal with the tissue issue anymore. :(
