Playing with paper and LEDs #paper #led #lighting

I purchase some LED strips to play around with.  I like how easy it is to set up and it also came with a tiny remote.  I use some of my scraps of resume paper I had to create the lantern.  Enjoy!

A punch of yellow

I meant to post this earlier.  Been urging to tackle a DIY project from pinterest.  I found an end table diy tutorial from design sponge.   I wanted a coffee table but didn’t want to splurge on one. Instead I doubled the square end table size and added a punch of yellow paint to the corners. The materials I use were mdf, copper tubes, and neon yellow spray paint.

High Top concepts

Lately, I’ve been watching some documentaries on the trend of sneakers on how it transition from athletic to becoming a fashion statement. This is why I’ve been taking elements from Jason Wu’s fall 2012 line.  I think his clean design would suit well for casual sneakers.  I’ll post the finalize concepts soon going to try to play with textures next!!
