Look at my attempt to render a pub. Did a lot of research to make sure it has the right atmosphere. It's not easy but I put in all I have. =)

That day, I was trying to clear away some of my old stuff that I had stacked away for a number of years. All my previous art work finally got uncovered.
I recalled those days when I used to hate rendering. I always thought I am no good in colouring be it colour pencil, rendering pen or even paint. But, two persons actually made me like it. When I was in secondary school, I met a very demading art teacher who made sure that all our painting has to come out presentable before it is accepted as a submission. And her favourite tasks were to paint fruits and various vegetables, pails and bottles and all kinds of static displays. It was tough, until one day when she demonstrated using my piece to show me how I can use various strokes and colours to make it more real life looking. Suddenly, I decided painting may be fun. Then came along my interior design coach who taught us rendering techniques using a combination of mediums. This allowed me to create different texture on my art work. And finally I see light or should I say, colours.
Of course, it can't be done within a day. It took me years to move from my art teacher's teaching to my ID coach's and through flipping many many ID and rendering books before I can understand more about rendering. Though I'm still not an expert, but a simple piece of work wouldn't harm me anymore.
If it wasn't for them, my work would have always been like this...
I was glad I never gave up on colours.

In the midst of taking care of my dear little girl, I finally found time to get this page done. Pretty tough to do I would say, especially when the paper already presents itself as being so crowded. I wanted to add more details and pictures yet would still like to leave some empty spaces to show off this very pretty patterned paper. This layout was on my table for a while when finally I decided to add a little slot at the left bottom corner for me to put in more pictures and write up. Felt really happy about the finished page, as I managed to put everything I wanted about my little baby gal's arrival.

It was a fun day today. Though there was rain in the morning, but the rain decided to give way for me and my family. "Rain rain go away" worked today. That's what had been playing on my player since the little addition to our family. Got a chance to go on a scrapbook 'stocking' trip again. Well, just another word for 'shopping'.
Take a look at the papers I bought today. Why need these papers? Never had such baby collection, guess it would help to inspire me to do more for my little girl. Met my instructor Betty who promised to make a page for my little girl too. Yippie. But as she mentioned, I've got to wait. I wouldn't mind. Good stuff are worth waiting for.
Looking for more time to start on my next page!!!
