Morning Twist




BTS First Photoshoot for GYNY




was doing a photoshoot with a little dream team of five for a little company that I wish will grow bigger someday. got helped from Karina as a model. she's not only pretty but also a funny and energetic girl! we laughed at her jokes and her story but that's only a little part of her that I know that day. she is actually a good singer. she was an Indonesian Idol nominee and now she leads a band named Asta.

and another friend Fadli who help us taking picture. he's funny too! his spontaneous makes us upset and laugh at the same time. yes, it was a fun day with friends and it's not going to be that fun if something wrong had not happened.

we took these photos at local equestrian that seems abandoned. there are so many trees and wild grass grow everywhere. long story short,  a man came to us and asked if we had already asked the owner permission for photoshoot. and the owner wish to collect the money from us about $100. WHAAAT?
let's get out of here!



this was the smile that we got before everything ruined.

diy collage notebook cover


{ ESSENTIAL TOOLS YOU MUST HAVE }

brush, paper glue, scissor, cutter, paper puncher, and white glue or PVAc glue

{ FAVORITE NOTEBOOK }
it's better to use your most favorite or most important notebook.
the result will cheer you up and you will be very happy every time you hold it wherever you go!


{ COLLAGES }
to design your new notebook cover with collages, you may need any kind of used magazines (we can pick its texts or pictures from their articles). if you don't have any used magazine you'd like to cut then you can use origami paper or anything you feel nice to paste on.
---
after cutting the collages from your sources, now it's time for placing.
note: we don't use glue in this step. simply place your collages to measure where you have to put them and fit the cover perfectly.
---
mine is like the picture below. I have some collages which placed between two other collages because I want it to look messy and unstructured.


{ GLUE }
if you are sure enough with the collages placement you just did, now, it's time to glue all of them on their back-side and place it where it should be. of course with the paper glue!


{ PUNCH IT! }
after gluing all collages, now, it's an optional step. you may do it or not. I use this puncher to make a simple confetti by punching my favorite colored magazine pages.

I will make a red confetti

> IF YOU WANT YOUR BACK COVER ALSO COVERED BY COLLAGES,
PLEASE REPEAT ALL STEPS FROM TOP TO HERE <

{ WHITE GLUE }
you have placed anything very well! now, it's time to finish the step by put this white glue on the surface. it's good to make your collages stay still and lock the color. also, it makes the collage paper become harder so it won't easily torn or peeled.

if you guys are glue phobia (LOL) you can use brush to apply it

EVEN THOUGH THE GLUE IS WHITE AND WHEN YOU APPLY IT ON YOUR COVER STILL SEEMS WHITE, DON'T PANIC! IT WILL TURN TRANSPARENT ONCE IT DRY.
---
all you have to do is to put the glue until it covers every inch of your collages.
you can put the white glue as much as you want.

let it dry

{ CLEAR COVER }
it's an optional step but I recommend you to follow this step to protect your collages from dirt, dust, stain or nasty fingers that would harm your cute DIY notebook collages.


{ FINALLY IT'S DONE }

IS READY TO USE

Moshi Moshi!


it's beeen a looong tiiime! :'3 here I come back with my two favorite things they are a sushi and a cat.

how's life lately? me watching so many Korean TV Shows. they are all funny and entertain me so well. when I watch Roommate, I feel like I want to live away from my parents and move to a new place with a new room mates. when I watch the Return of Superman, I usually imagine what would my children be like? how my husband will take care of my kids?. when I watch We Got Married, I would like to scream aaak can Jo In Sung and I be an eternal couple in your show? and last, Running Man. there's nothing funner than running in Running Man. I want it sooo bad.

what? I only watch K-shows all day long? nope. I have so many things to do. first I must make sure that my house is clean so when I wake up in the morning I must sweep and mop the all floors. I must check the dirty clothes in all bathrooms and wash it. I must take all dry clothes from hanger to my ironing thrones. LOL because ironing clothes is the most tiring part of everything I usually put my laptop in front of me and that's how I watch K-show; my one and only companion to get the job done. beside taking care of my house, I was busy browsing and study for 'something' I couldn't tell you right now. however, it took some of my times that I usually use to doodle or drawing. I miss my drawing tools so much.

oh, I also try to go on a food combining diet. it's because my aunt fights with her cancer and she gave me a simple recipe to not combining carbs with any meats (beef, fish, lamb, etc animal fats). both of them must be combined with vegetables. at first, I thought it would be boring and will make me lose my appetite but then after watching Korean actors often eat meat with lettuce wrap it gives me an air to breathe. finally, I got a new idea to run my diet. so I went to grocery and shopped anything I need. voila! my first try was success! my nephew, cousin, mom, and even my boyfriend said it's delicious! I will share the recipe to you soon.

I'll catch you soon with another illustration. thank you for reading!
love,
