Stuff I do in college

IMG_2466

Hi dreamies, CASS here! As you all know, I’ve been studying in a fashion designing course for about 2 months now, & to be true, I’ve experienced quite a lot, besides meeting new people from different aspects, I also tried out some different experiences. So enjoy my story telling ♥

As for the garments that I’m wearing above, it was a finished project from a group of my seniors.

Actually I tried out a lot of fitting lately for our seniors in the same course, & it was a breathtaking experience because they have such creativity that I couldn’t really achieve in my current state, I still need to work extra hard to reach that level TT

They don’t simply design plain clothes for their collection, they came out with so much special and exotic designs, and some that I found extremely beautiful. As for all the complicated stitching & drapery, I can’t imagine how I’m going to do it myself in the future haha.

This is literally the first small test that I had for one of my classes, and to point out that it’s the first day of school. I think the outcome of my design is quite strange, actually the color and pattern was better before I added all the floral printing and stuff, but I’m a flower freak, so what! haha

So basically we have drawing classes, I mean the one about sketching & learning human body proportions. I need to claim that this is not my artwork, it’s actually my lecturer’s drawing. Oh my god, she is such a pro!

And this hideous one is mine haha, bare with it guys, I’m not good at drawing human faces, and also bodies.

IMG_1276IMG_1278IMG_1280IMG_2710

Basically, this is what we draw besides the faces, actually I’ve done some with colours but didn’t manage to take pics before I pass it up to my lecturer.

The last photo was actually a recent one, or should I say yesterday ^^ I think I kinda improve with the body proportions. It’s easier for me to draw a human body with right proportions now.

I also learn french in school, and it’s cool to actually learn a language that you’ve been longing to learn. The starting was fun, but it gradually gets complicated, sometimes I can’t really focus in french class because the long hour classes that I took before french class, life is just so hard nowadays TT

” Bonjour! Je suis CASS, J’ai 18 ans ” (Just a simple sentence to introduce myself )

IMG_1962IMG_2023

Actually, each of our classmates owns a mannequin, obviously a female one, if you can see the body parts haha. As for the black strings that you see on the mannequin, we need to pin it one by one, as in ‘tons of pins for just one string’.

At first it was soooooooooooo damn hard, but for now it’s better, but still hard, because we don’t just simply pin it, we have techniques for the pinning and also need to measure a lot of proportions before we pin. And the hardest part is the string needs to stay straight.

I named my mannequin KSANDRA, as you might not know, it’s my instagram name. KSANDRA is quite good for a hugger, I mean I’m always the one who’s hugging her, and she basically stays at school, I don’t bring her home haha ^^ As my lecturer said, I’ll be spending my lifetime with her, maybe a dreamy life haha.

My desk, I mean this is still considered clean and neat, but the table in my hostel is sooo stuffy omg TT Plus the table is too small.

 

SMALL TALK:

IMG_2644.JPG

I think a fashion designing course is a fun thing to study, but it’s also tougher than other normal courses, because other than research work, we need to also finish physical projects like drawing, stitching and all, we not only work on computers, but we also work on paper and fabric.

Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with all the assignments but I still don’t feel stressed out or anything, I think my high school trained me well haha!

This is just the very start, so I think I’ll have a lot more to share after this. Soon I’ll also post stuff about my personal books (the pic above). If you guys wanna know more about my school life, or about the school’s  information and all, feel free to comment or email me, I’ll try my best to help out.

Birthday Card Tutorial ‘2

img_0564

Hi guys, CASS here! Having lots of leisure time recently, so I’ve been keeping up on my ‘One birthday, one card’ routine ( I think it’s a habit since I was a kid ). Therefore, to make the person receiving it happy, I need to think of different ideas and designs for all the gift cards (remind: no repetitions TT ), ex: birthday, mother’s day, father’s day, Christmas….☺

Throughout the past years, I’m more into arts & crafts rather than painting or drawing, so I’ve decided to improve my painting skills. And, wallah! I’ve completed a full-painting birthday card. Mind to inform you, I’ve became a flora-freak lately ♥ Enjoy

If you’re not the ‘super creative’ type of person, but you need a lot of new ideas, this application named “PINTEREST” might be very helpful. It’s an app which is full of everything. A place which people share their creativity, life hacks, designs and more! Take a look, I’ve downloaded it on my phone ☺

These examples gave me inspirations for this birthday card. Lovely flowers ♥

img_0530

A big mess, that’s the so-called “art” haha. At first I paint my border with flowers and plants, by leaving an empty space in the middle. Watercolor is a good choice, but you can try out color pencils or markers too.

IMG_0533.JPG

Just simply add a ‘Happy Birthday’ quote, play with the fonts to make the quote stand out! If you notice, I’ve shaded the words with a gold gliter pen to add a little sparkle on it ♥ Just some tiny details

Extra (greeting cards) :

img_0704img_0703img_0701

These are some greeting cards that I decided to make for my future housemates (going to KL soon), but I’m not sure if I will hand it out to them, ’cause things might get a little bit awkward if they think that I’m over enthusiastic. I’ll consider it by the time haha!

These are simple to make, what you need is some white cards and watercolor paint ♥ See ya —- LOVE, CASS

Nail Tutorial ‘1

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

 

img_9385

Hi fellas, CASS here ! Here’s my first nail art tutorial, it’s very simple, besides, I haven’t bought the nail tools that I needed, but I’ll soon ☺ So please bare with the flaws, because I’m using bamboo sticks and hair pins to draw my nails for now. Let’s start anyway, enjoy ♥

 

Tools:

  • Nail painting brush (bamboo stick / toothpick )
  • Gel top coat
  • Gel base coat
  • Nail polish: silver , pink / nude
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors

 

 

Steps ♦:

  1. Cut your nails or shape them, if you want to. (I cut my nails shorter and squared them)

img_9338

 

2. Apply a coat of nail strengthener or nail protection gel. (I’m using O.P.I’s nail strengthener)img_9339img_9341

 

3. Apply a coat of pink/ nude color nail polish.

img_9392

 

 

4. Cut masking tapes into the shape as below ⇓

 

 

5. Paste the shaped-masking tape on your nails, leave a small space between the tip of your nail and the tape. (You can random your designs, don’t need to paste it on all nails)

 

 

6. Paint the upper tip of the your nails with silver nail polish, and the masking tape will prevent you from painting outlined.

*You need to peel off the masking tape as fast as possible, before the nail polish dries, it’s best to peel off right after applying the color.img_9360

 

 

7. Draw some small dotes with a nail brush/ bamboo stick at the sides of your nails to add some design.

8. Lastly, apply a coat of top coat to protect your nail art, to prevent them from damage. Then your nail look is done !

Birthday Card Tutorial ‘1

Hi my dreamies, CASS here ♥ Since I’m making my mom’s birthday card, I decided to share my first craft tutorial, a simple birthday card ! Follow me & enjoy.

15032573_1283897618329619_853805770_n

Steps:

  1. Design a birthday quote on a piece of paper/ card, it’s easy to use different font styles to design the words. Draw a circle around your quote & cut it out.

14971785_1283897761662938_1343376659_n

2. Use any suitable craft paper bits or draw patterns on a circular shaped paper, and cut out the middle part of it (dotted line part) , to create a border.

14958471_1283897778329603_1646369362_n

3. Stick your ‘quote paper’ (step 1) & ‘border’ (step 2) together with glue.

14996413_1283897754996272_2112441351_n

4. You need a piece of white card and some patterned craft paper (it’s ok to use color paper). Fold the white card into half.

5. Stick the patterned paper on the cover of your card, there’s 2 kinds of ways, either vertical or horizontal.

6. Choose a ribbon that suits your design, I choose brown for mine. Stick the ribbon on the top of your patterned paper. (*but not to the very top, leave some edge)

7. Find a some double-sided tape (thicker ones are better, because it creates a 3D effect) , stick the ‘quote paper’ at the center of the ribbon.

8. For the inner part, you’ll need a piece of color paper. Cut the color paper into a smaller size ( 27cm x 19cm ), fold it into half and stick it to the white card.

14962880_1283897611662953_1929637978_n

9. Cut out 2 piece of white card into a smaller size ( 11cm x 17cm ), make some design. For me, I drew a small cartoon of my mom & I, and paste a photo on the other one.

14962906_1283958414990206_672946134_n

10. Stick the small white cards (step 9) on the your big card. (this is a photo before I designed the cards, sorry haha ☺ )

14961583_1283897624996285_1229625274_n

11. Then it’s done.
