โ€œThis collaboration with Nala Designs is a sensible 1๏ธโƒฃ because they are passionate about creating Malaysian๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ-inspired artwork that is vibrant & eye๐Ÿ‘€-catching, but more importantly capable of inspiring individuals๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ This is parallel to what Dulux ๐ŸŽจ advocates.

Scheers ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ผ said: โ€œColours ๐ŸŽจ play an important role in our daily lives & a great way to make use of colours ๐ŸŽจ is to paint ๐Ÿ–Œ, regardless of the canvas. However, painting is somewhat underappreciated today because many think of it is time-consuming & frankly inconsequential ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Photo 08-06-2018, 6 04 53 PM.jpg

To change this mindset, we have collaborated with Dulux ๐ŸŽจ to showcase the power of colours ๐ŸŽจ through the painting of walls โ€“ not only is this the most impactful way, itโ€™s also 1๏ธโƒฃ of the most affordable. Itโ€™s impactful in the sense that colours can change the way the space you live in looks like, especially when you begin playing around with textures. The colour ๐ŸŽจ of your walls can also affect your mood๐Ÿ˜‰โ—๏ธโ€

โ€œTo us, colour ๐ŸŽจ is everything & thatโ€™s 1๏ธโƒฃ way we try to distinguish ourselves in the creative industry โ€“ by creating products that not only sport eye๐Ÿ‘€-catching designs, but showcase our passion for colour๐ŸŽจโ€ She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ผ added

Ha…Ha…She has opted for colourful toe nails art, so that she can show off all the beautiful nail colours ๐Ÿ˜†

She was then created her own version of a 3D twinkle star โญ๏ธ nail art, it was an impromptu idea while she was amazed all the 9 nail colours ๐Ÿ˜

1stly, she applied the yellow ๐Ÿ’›nail colour. Then, she put a drop of light green ๐Ÿ’š nail colour on top of the yellow base. Lastly, she used a tooth pick to craft a 3D twinkle star โญ๏ธ then

Let’s enjoy a short video clip captured on this creation,

While waiting for it to complete dry ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป, she used the Ruby Pusher to push & clean the ย excess nail colours around each toe nails ๐Ÿ™‚

She then applied the UV gel top coat (2 layers) to finishing her pedicure nails art ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing’s 1st colourful pedicure nails art done with Nail It! ๐Ÿ’…๐ŸปLoving the colourful toe nails ๐Ÿ˜

Really enjoying & loving the vibrant nail colours ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป& all are very smooth & easy for application either on finger nails or toe nails ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Moreover, this nail colours series doesn’t have any strong unpleasant nail lacquer smell after application ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

Hmm…There are plenty of nail art stickersโ—๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Since her nails still shorter than the ideal length, SiennyLovesDrawing just can’t wait & has decided to do a transparent manicure nails art with these stickers ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„

She has 1st applied the filler base coat

She then chosen & pasted the nail art sticker on the nail which already applied the base coat

After that, she applied the UV gel top coat to finishing

Another way to do nails art ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿปfor short nails would be using stripes design ๐Ÿ˜

World Autism Awareness

Do you know that April is the month for World Autism Awareness?

To commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April, AkzoNobel, producer of leading decorative paint ๐ŸŽจbrand, Dulux celebrates the significant day by transforming National Autism Society of Malaysiaโ€™s (NASOM) vocational centre ๐Ÿก in Jalan Ipoh, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Bravo! AkzoNobel brings life in a new light to Autistic students!

Mr. Indra Laban, General Manager ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผof AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia has thanked Malaysiaโ€™s renowned colour therapist๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, Ms. Evelyn Leong on her collaboration with AkzoNobel working alongside Duluxโ€™s Colour Consultants to provide the colour schemes to create a better learning environment for both students & teachers.

Mr. Indra further elaborated that there are visual, symbolic, synesthetic, emotional, physiological & psychological effects of colours. AkzoNobel strongly believes that colours are vital in uplifting mood and will bring positive effects to peopleโ€™s lives & the importance of the right environment in the vocational centre to bring out the best in student ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“ & teachers ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿซ

Ms. Evelyn Leong, colour therapist ( https://www.colourzwork.com/about-us ) explains, โ€œIt is great to see AkzoNobel has constantly striving to improve the communities & people through the power of colours.โ€

Sharing some of the interesting facts about colours learnt from the event,

  • It influences peopleโ€™s attitudes, grabs attention & evokes feelings.
  • Colour can have such transforming & uplifting effect on people & places.
  • It can promote both physical & mental relaxation as well as reducing stress.
  • Inspirational colours can be very effective in learning settings.

Sharing some facts about the puzzle ribbon learnt from the event,

  • This puzzle ribbon was adopted in 1999 as the universal sign of Autism Awareness
  • It reflects the complexity of the Autism Spectrum
  • The different colours & shapes represent the diversity of the people & families living with the condition
  • The brightness of the ribbon signals hope that through increased awareness of autism, early intervention & access to appropriate services/ supports

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of the fastest growing &ย life-long developmental disability that affects the functioning of the brain, thus impairing social interaction & communication skills, which makes it difficult for them to relate & communicate with others. People who have autism are also more likely to experience sensitivities in the 5 senses i.e. sight, hearing, touch, taste & smell.

As an autistic person, they tend to be more sensitive with their senses & the colours used in the vocational centre are mostly in shades of pastel with low stimulation. Each of the rooms in the centre is painted with a different colour to create different moods e.g. the staff room is painted light pink to further harness loving & compassionate teachers/ personnel; orange is used on the walls near the kitchen/ dining area to stimulate creative activities.

โ€œOur students spend an average of 8 hours a day in the centre & it is important for us to provide a conducive environment for them to learn & grow. We are thankful to both AkzoNobel & Evelyn Leong to help transform our vocational training centre, to assist in livening up using the power of colour to provide a better learning space for our studentsโ€, saysย Feilina Feisol, Chairman of NASOM.

Everyone of us can contribute & make a difference to the autism community. You may help to support autism education, awareness, advocacy, research & families living with autism viaย http://www.nasom.org.my/autism/
