making wallpaper

I stumbled upon this video the other day about printing wallpapers... 
For someone who works with the material everyday, watching this is just stunning.

I wanted to add some twist to the 3d paper fonts, so here's what i came up with...

Wouldn't it be nice to hang this on the bedroom door of your loved ones?

scrapfridge the right term to describe what I've been doing to my fridge doors. 


I use them as a "scrapbook" to display my bric-a-brac. 
What are they is mostly cute-dont-know-where-i'll-put-it-but-will-buy-it-anyway things, and some curious-but-lets-see-how-it-works-out crafts, because apparently i'm only attracted to certain types of crafts. 

I dig paper (obviously) so you'll see LV floper and vantiani 's postcards, among some holiday photos & polaroids, but... i don't go gaga over cartoon-ish colorful soft toys, hence you only see idekuhandmade 's voodoo dolls there :D

New additions, that made me change the whole layout of my "scrapfridge" recently, including:

hand-drawn cards from taiwan

"kue basah" felt toys from hoshi craft

photo-printed button that i did a year ago but end up nowhere

The first good thing about using your fridge doors as a "scrapbook" is that NOTHING is permanent (i use magnet buttons, blu tacks, etc) hence:

  • i can easily change the layout (which i usually do after a few months)
  • there's always space for more things (double-doors are the best!) 
  • it doesn't get messy because no glue/paint/powder involved 
  • i don't spend on "unseen" things like glue, paint & powder
  • aaand... it is a 24/7 display at home (which always got my guests curious and take a closer look)

Because the truth is i'm intimidated by doing a real scrapbook (there i said it!), and i'm a minimalist at heart, but on these steel surface i feel that i can just "let go" and jumble and pile things anyway i want them. 

To fill the whole doors is the step i'm taking slowly because it will surely be an enjoyable one. I encourage you to do the same to your fridge doors!

loe gue end

Oh right, i'm going a bit "alay" with that title.

But with a reason... it is THE title of my husband's latest movie!

Before you conjure up images of cheesy local acts that are usually associated with indonesian catchy phrase, please let me stop you by saying: there's nothing cheesy about this movie. Well except, for its title. 

Loe Gue End is probably awi suryadi's finest movie to date.

The colors, the shots, the effects, the beautiful casts, the fast-paced editing, the haunting scoring...  i could go on and on.

Making movies is very much a blood-sweat-and-tears project, and this one is no exception too. Everyone who is involved in the movie, from the casts to the crews, are pushed to give their best and it is very heartening to see they're very proud of what the movie has turned out to be. 

"Loe Gue End" is portraying the dark lives of the young upper-class  in Jakarta, so expect to see alcohol, drugs and language that may not be suitable for children or teens under 18y/o.

However, if you're up for a visual feast (i know i am) and looking forward to be entertained with things that are otherwise unfamiliar to you, i'd say "go for it". 

Okay, enough talking. Here's the unofficial teaser & trailer of "Loe Gue End" which premieres on November 1st, 2012.


...and the super friggin cool poster that was released this morning! Me likey!

UPDATE: A new 30sec-trailer of Loe Gue End (rated-R)!
