Copper is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Equally just as luxurious as gold or silver (if not more), copper is rich and warm, and emits an air of relaxation. Not to mention it seems especially beautiful within a cool, bright space
I'm gradually forming a small collection of copper objects, and hope to add more. With this diy I realized how effective simply spray paint can be in helping me achieve this. 
Very eager to grab some things from my room and just go paint-crazy... so many possibilities.

This diy was for Recens Paper. I was invited by lovely Elise, the editor-in-chief and co-founder of the paper, to join the many innovative contributors by creating diy's for Recens blog. Recens Paper is a Scandinavian magazine focusing on fashion, art and uniting artistic individuals whose fresh and new ways of thinking deserve to be appreciated.

PS  A big thanks to Elise, and others who have given me offers and opportunities to work with them. Thanks to all who come across this diy, my blog, instagram, pinterest, polyvore, and etc. And thanks to all you readers and commenters, everywhere, who have even the slightest interest in the things I post. I have come across so many talented people through the community of the internet, and hope to continue to connect with these people as time passes, as well as meet new people to exchange new perspectives with.

Experimenting with an old favorite: white polish. 
Featuring this wonderful little frame created from a solid white block, a removable clear glass cover, and magnets discreetly inserted in the glass and block to hold it all in place.
Functional, simple, and clever designs make me happy.

Digital mood board/ on my mind this fall (along with all the uni assignments... le sigh)
Apart from the academic projects, I'll be focusing on an upcoming modeling and styling collab with a brilliant photographer, as well as working on interior and wearable crafts. It'll be a busy finish to 2013.

Continuity. It is essential to succeed, to excel, to learn, to grow.

While making more personal plans and goals (and actually noticing growth/achievement), I figured it would be a healthy challenge to add blogging to my list of things "to-do" again.
I remembered I had stored away this quote by Martin Margiela some time ago, and thought it would suit well for the occasion. The brilliant deconstructionist's take on the present and future is a simple, yet effective one. 
Life continues on, whether we like where it's going or not. We can stop going a certain direction, we can digress, but we keep moving forward in time. If motion is inevitable and time will be spent regardless, we might as well be using that time continuing towards a goal or desire of our own choosing.
Listen to Margiela and let continuity inspire you too.
