Pinterest Weekly Roundup: 4 October 2014

October screams so many celebrations! Octoberfest, Halloween and more parties! My calendar is filled mostly with work datelines, and weddings.

If you a frequent home or rockafellas party planner like me, inspiration shall hit us first. Look around or surf online to find out what are people doing, what can be done, what perks up the night, and what makes it memorable till it becomes a topic for the next gathering.

No doubt I have my own resources online when it comes to party ideas, food recipes, favour boxes, party games to impress the guest and all. But at the end of the day, I still come back to Pinterest as it is so easy to navigate everything I need in one site.

Follow us on Pinterest here to see the amazing picks we've pinned on our boards!

Feat Art : Lee Sydney

We remember how students questioned her name. We remember seeing her most of the time in the fine art studio. We know she is the glue in her mates.

But we also realize one thing that Sydney, our bright student from Diploma in Fine Art just like her name; she is one in a million. 

Apart from her signature leather jacket and short shorts style, her work is not only intricate but the aesthetic finishing touched our minds, bodies and souls. To be honest, we have never seen Sydney stop working on new paintings! 

Nevertheless, the college received requests to purchase Sydney's art. However, just like many of our students, the work value is priceless. 

Here are some of our favourite work and moments of her:

Surveillance of the border patrol in the glass cage - Oil on canvas

Graphite Drawing

Oil on canvas immitation

The red sea of the unforsaken - Oil on canvas

Pinterest Weekly Roundup: 23 August 2014

How is August treating you so far?

With the cold weather and isolated storm that has been going on lately, I longed for a little warmth by the campfire, or simply a humble duvet. A cup of Chai tea latte wouldn't hurt too.

The first thought that struck me when I did this week's Pinterest Roundup was ''My gosh, how tan is this roundup?''. It's brown, earthy, neutral and for a moment I thought I could almost smell the scent of apple tree wood; such a safe colour.

Without further ado, let's see take a look at what is on our boards this week, shall we?

Feat Art: Tan Jia Shin

Back then, I stayed up late at night or even skipped dinner just to catch the classic Disney movies.

Aren't those the great moments in our childhood? I remember how I used to cuddle in an over-sized blanket, sneaking cookies and milk in for the night. 

When this collection of shadow cutout design was submitted, I couldn't help but be amazed at the intricate details and fine handcrafted work. I mean, don't we see this only at sites like Behance or Dribbble?

That's the time when I know I have to feature this work. This wonderful work was done by our Diploma in Graphic & Multimedia Design student, Tan Jia Shin.

It means no worries, for the rest of your days..

Pinterest Weekly Roundup: 19 July 2014

With many heartbreaking incidents lately, many had lost their loved ones and hope. 

Unfortunate incidents like these in one way or another made us realize that no place and no time is ever safe. 

So, tell you loved ones that you love them whenever you have the chance. Let them know how much you care about them. 

"Don't wait for the perfect moment. Take the moment and make it perfect. " - Zoey Sayward 

We hope that this week's Pinterest Roundup could take your mind off, even though for a little while.
