Sometimes, life can throw many challenges at you all at the same time and one can easily feel overwhelmed. So whenever I can, I take a little trip down to Bedok Reservoir to look at nature and look at the weeping willows, the trees and the water. 

This time, I was very much inspired to do a nature journal but instead of filling it with writings on the object of nature, I filled it instead with my favorite quotes. Some of this quotes are written by a friend (who also provided some of the nice nature sketches too). 

Because I can't draw to save my life, I got a friend who was a sweetheart that could do really nice sketches to add to the quote book.

In terms of the creative direction, I wanted the following elements: clean and simple mixed media, minimalism and letting the words speak for themselves.

A few tips: 
1) Always consider different ways to introduce words into quote books: brush lettering, regular writing, typewriter etc. to add interest and emphasis on the words you want the most attention to be drawn to. It is your book, so you can decide on the sort of focus you want. 
2) Keep it simple and make it about the words and not about the images. They help to frame and tell your stories and not the other way around. Hence I went for a more minimalist approach to the design. 
3) I intend to continue adding new pages along the way so consider a format of a book where pages can be added in easily. 

Hope you enjoyed the project.

Steampunk Junk Journal

Daolin Goh

So what do you do when you are stuck at home, sick in your *new* craftroom (it was not exactly new like a new location per se, I just cleaned it up and did some furniture changes and am l LURV-ing the new look)... Well, you craft. 

I took out some of my beloved old vintage items, the bo bunny beautiful dreamer's ephemera pack and some scraps I have and voila: a steampunk junk journal. Enjoy!

Absolutely LOVE the cover and the buckle.

Lovely charms eh

Midori, Fauxdori and the Junk Journal

Daolin Goh

Welcome everyone once again!

If you are following me on my Youtube channel, you would have noticed that I have changed my Youtube channel to Prism Craft Designs to match my blog but you can still search for me under Flamerick (because of how long it has been established, I'll still remain that to be my SEO friendly term). 

One of the things that I'll be doing is to do educational craft videos to fill in the gaps within the crafting Youtube thing and also blogosphere while keeping myself up to speed with the trends going on in the industry. 

So for the first series into my educational videos I will be talking about the Midori, Fauxdori and Junk Journal component.

The playlist is as below. Do continue to check back for more contents that will be added to that playlist! Til next time!
