14- Singapore

I almost didn't do this one.

I have been to Singapore (airport) for about 2 hours in total over 2 visits (to and. From australia) it was a lovely airport. Very big and a bit disorganised

The process I go through with these cards is I think myself of the country and the first thing that pops to mind with Singapore was sky scrapers and water.

I've read a couple of books by Lisa See a while ago and I'm sure one of them was set in Singapore but I could be confusing it with something else

Then I turn to google images for just Singapore. The skyscrapers again and again.

Next I might search traditions / festivals etc. this week however I read an article in a free magazine that's distributed in the uk about travelling to see art. And Singapore was one of the places and it said there is a massive Andy Warhol exhibition. I might update my book page to incorporate this.

They also mentioned a dragon boat festival which looks really good but I did a dragging for china and tbh I'm too lazy to draw another

So I went simple and skyscraperey

Wow, this turned out really cool. Love all the glittery colors. I'm not sure but it looks like your paper has a cool texture in the background that looks really neat. Nicely done!!

Thank you. The paper is weird. I bought it by accident as I thought it was a journal back. But it's embossed with a calendar / bingo card effect and I'd you sand the raised up part another colour comes through. I tried it with a nail file but I didn't really do much!

Thank you.

My nail varnish is Barry m Cobolt blue topped with NYC glitter polish. Think I've been spending too much time in pinterest I constantly want glittery nails
