Graphic 45 Designer – Katie Zoey Ho
Our Graphic 45 Guest Designer for this week is Katie Zoey Ho who is part of the 2014 Graphic 45 Design Team. You can see Katie’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Hi Everyone. I’m Katie from Singapore, a tiny red dot along the equator on the map; also known as the Green City where you will be surrounded with lots of greeneries and enjoy summer all year round. I was previously from the biomedical research and healthcare industry. Love coffee and science but my passion inclines towards designing and creating. The combination of science & art always excites me. I enjoy the creating process and love to crack my brain. I’m so excited to be part of the PCL spotlight as a Graphic 45 DT member for today. And I hope what I’ve shared here can be a source of inspiration. Happy crafting and have fun creating!!! Cheers!!!
Altered Match Box and Butterfly Necklace
Here I’m sharing this heartwarming altered matchbox to house the necklace I’ve created using Graphic 45 staples. I like the texture of embossed metal, hence I embossed some of the metal butterflies staples with some floral textured and made this pendant for the necklace.
It’s one such handmade gift that I’d like to gift to a close girlfriend of mine who is currently undergoing some tough times in her marriage and as an actor. I’m not really good at accessory making, but I do hope this will add some sunshine to her. It may not help/improve her situation, but I do hope this butterfly pendant will at least brave her heart up and soar like a butterfly.
“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a Garden…”
Tips in creating sentimental gifts: Think of a theme that’s closely related to the person you want to gift to and then choose a color palette to work with.
