Typography

HELLO!

I have been interested in typography recently, and so have been searching for some ideas.

The best site I have found is Type Hype.

Here is some of her work.

Quote Art

Hello!

Lately, in between studying for exams, I have been doing a lot of art.

I have been doing some quotes, with different fonts.

So, Typography, basically.

Here they are

My favourite is the red one with the Macklemore quote.

What is your favourite?

Also, I have been drawing some pictures for my sister to use in her scrapbook.

I’m pretty proud of it!

My Week

Hello!

I have just come back from a four day camp out in the bush, in tents, with no toilets or showers, and we had to hike and go mountain biking and surfing and canoeing. The highlight of it all was probably the surfing. I even stood up 3 times! (For a few seconds, but it still counts!) Altogether,  I’m tired!

I had the day off school today, in order to recuperate, and I’ve been doing a bit of DIY. I made some glowing jars for my room (tutorial here)

(So sorry for the bad photo quality!)

Also, my wardrobe finally came, so I can finally fill it! Its really good quality, and my mum had it before me and it is still in perfect working condition after about 10 years!

I am really glad Halloween’s over, cos I was a bit sick of all the Halloween DIY’s on Craftgwarker, and I have no reason to do any of them, since we don’t celebrate Halloween in Australia!

Also, I have been looking around Pinterest, looking for ideas to jazz up my bedroom, and I saw many cool ideas, but the idea that stuck with me most was the fairy lights. As it is coming up to Christmas, it was fairly easy to get some, and at a cheep price. I got 10 meters for $10 at Woolworths. I stuck mine up with clear sticky tape and its been working really well! (If you use this method use at least 3 pieces!)

Hope you all had a great week!

String Ball Lampshades

Hi. To start of my début as a blogger, I thought I would show you my most recent craft, two string ball lampshades!

Image

Here are the recently made lampshades, hanging from the roof of my bedroom.

I used the website tutorial on Crafted Love, and it worked really well!

The only things I would warn you about is the cornstarch and glue mix mentioned. When I made mine, I added to much cornstarch (about 3/4 cup) and the mixture was grainy and you could still feel it when it was dry. Its not obvious, but up close you can see it. I also had to much glue on my string when i wrapped it around so at the end, the excess glue had dripped to the bottom of the balloon and created a big splodge. So not to much glue! In addition, I used glad wrap, instead of Vaseline, and it worked well, only as mentioned above, the glue dripped to the bottom of the balloon and I was afraid of breaking it because it was stuck to the glad wrap. I still came off though, so its fine!

There you go!

Hello!

Hi! I’m a 15 year old girl from Australia who loves craft, photography, alternative music and teen fashion.

Here on this blog, I want to share tutorials, the outcomes of my experiments and my thoughts and opinions. As a fifteen year old, I get bored easily, so I decided to create my bog when I discovered EmilyJane’s blog. (http://emilyjane.typepad.com/) She is like me in a lot of ways, and I decided I wanted to do something like she does. You are welcome to leave comments on how I can make my blog better, or what you would suggest in a different way I could look at things. You can also contact me at zarinaloublog@outlook.com.

Thanks!
