DIY : State Canvas

Hey y'all!
Recently I came across this cute Pinterest inspired bedroom decor that showed a picture of a hand painted canvas with a map on it which got me thinking, "Why didn't I think of this? This is pretty easy to make!". So I did!
Went around to get some supplies and also asked my brother to bring back some other stuff that I needed from Singapore since they have everything there.

So here's what you need :
Canvas (Any size of your choice)
Acrylic Paint (Any colour of your choice)
Map Template (Any state of country of your choice)

X-Acto Knife (Scissors or Stationary Knife is fine too)
Paintbrush

Palette
Liquitex (Or Mod Podge)

First, place the template on your canvas to check if its the correct size that you want. Mine was slightly too big so I traced inside the template to make it smaller.

After drafting out a new template, you can start cutting out the template using your X-Acto knife or any cutting material you prefer. Be sure to place a cutting board or cardboar…

The Art Factory at CAD (Centre for Arts & Design), Kota Kinabalu

A month ago,
there was an event called "The Art Factory" that was organized at CAD and boy I was excited and hyped for 2 weeks waiting for it to finally arrive!


Its an event where all talented and gifted artists come together and showcase their works and also to sell them too. It was such a beautiful  sight when I first step foot into CAD and I seriously didn't know where to start. It might look like a small thing going on but man I spent quite a while just looking around there TRYING HARD not to spend all my money (Which I almost did).

DIY : Washi Tape Power Bank (Decor & etc)

I'm back with another DIY!
Well, currently there's this trend where people use Washi Tapes for everything.
I came up with an idea to DIY a few things with these tapes and I decided to start off with my power bank. I dropped it once and it has quite a few scratches here and there so I decided to cover it up with tapes.

So here's what you need :

 Washi Tape (Any colour of your choice)
 X-Acto Knife (or any stationary knife)
Scissors
Power Bank

First, decide where and how you want to tape your power bank and then tape on!
Make sure to leave some extra tape at both ends before cutting them off.
This way you will make sure you have enough to cover which ever part that needs to be covered.

Then, use an X-Acto knife to trim off the edges.
Scissors would be too big to get into the curvy edges so a stationary knife or an X-acto knife would be perfect.

Note : Please be careful not to cut yourself. The X-Acto knife is really sharp. Once that's done, you can tape up on the sides if yo…
