Hello world! I’m happy to say I survived midterms (barely), and actually managed to get a full night’s sleep TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW. It’s amazing what something so simple can do. Y’all remember that post i did a while back about DIY art for my boring, snow-white-walled apartment? Of course you. WELL. I did it. (Actually, my roommate, my mom, and I did.) As my friends are fond of saying, “Pictures, or it didn’t happen.
Paint/collage by my mum! Put a bird on it! This lady gets it, man. Love it. The colors are awesome to, this DIY thing must be hereditary, no? She painted a canvas, stamped/painted the designs, then cut the leaves out of tissue paper and decoupaged the whole shebang. All I did was stick a nail in the wall and hang the sucker up. I could get used to this.
My supercool roomie made this one. Once again, the combination of paint, canvas, paper and decoupage didn’t fail. Looks lovely, cheery, and is a perfect reminder that Spring is coming (someday. It has to, right?)
I totes made this, bros. Guess how? OH RIGHT THE SAME AS THE FIRST TWO. This isn’t a decoupaged-themed post, I swear. I used fancy scrapbook paper that I found in an art store in Salem, OR. I plan on trying the melted-crayon art technique first. I shall need spare time..yea, that ain’t gonna happen.
I wrote about how to make a chalkboard table earlier this week, and here’s a shot of mine. it was super easy and cheap to make. Much giddy scribbling has occurred since I coated our scuffed-up tables with slate paint. it’s pretty cool…kinda like kindergarten, but without annoying kids stealing the toys you wanna play with.
