Pafrenz- Senior Academy

I've always wanted to make my own scrapbook but the materials were too expensive plus I didn't know how to start. So, I was excited when Pafrenz invited me to join a shadowbox making event! Basically, a shadowbox is a wooden box that can be used as a decorative mantlepiece in the house, but you decorate it the same way you do so for a scrapbook.

Hence, I headed down to Tanjong Pagar CC the other day to try out my art skills:p

The teacher prepared many pretty decorative pieces for us!

And here is one of the teacher's personal artwork themed "Paris", with unique items like bus cards and perfume bottles she collected from her trip to Paris!

Another unique artpiece:

We were spoilt for choices with the many decorative materials!

Cute Stickers
Flowers and buttons
Colourful ribbons
Delightful yarns
Pretty little charms

Listening intently to the teacher's sharing. 

Finally, we were ready to start on our very own shadowbox!

After about 2 hours, I was done with mine YAY!!

My shadowbox was themed "family" so I had it decorated with photos of my family members, I also wanted it to look floral-ish so I stucked on a chain of ribbon roses:)

With William, Vivian and her mum:)

With my favourites:

I'm happy to have attended this ShadowBox event hosted by the People's Association Senior Academy as its a really relaxing event and gives us a chance to make new friends as well as spend our free time doing something fun:)
