reduce your room junk,
and come up with something quirky or fashionable -
by doing it your own.
The Idea Inception
I've always enjoyed creating things out of random stuff (perfect example: trash) + personalizing everything that I have.
I do that mainly because...
- ...out of boredom.
- I don't have money / too frugal to spend on something I think I could create on my own.
- I love all things cute!
- It saves all my junk I'd refuse to throw out.
Introducing my matchbox camera I made years ago.
During that time, miniature slr camera accessories were so rare & expensive! I was just a student with sufficient allowance so I had to be extra careful with budgeting my money.
I saw an empty matchbox at home. Did some paper mache and used the remaining black paint I had from my Prang watercolor (using it way back when I was in elementary!).
The white polkadots were done using a correction fluid / pen.
If you don't have a camera/dslr as at present. here's one for the moment. ;D
Got a second-hand Wacom tablet (my first ever which lasted over 3 years?) from my brother.
It looked too boring + I was so bored so.. : )
Pop Art + Self-portraits were my thing before.
Sewed that camera on the black shirt : )
I couldn't sleep properly because my eye mask had gone missing... so I made one for myself.
With robot eyes! Haha~
Bought a pair of cheap Advan flats and drew doodles on it.
Transformed my dirty and plain chucks to a rainbowholic one ;-D
Bought cheap (around a dollar only?) polkadotted shoelaces to make it cuter.
With just creativity and readily-available stuff from your home, you can modify something using your own style. : )
And I will be your Sensei.
