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.

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)

Image

(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!

Image

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!

Paint Chip Mosaics

First Official Tutorial : Paint Chip Mosaics

Image

What you need

–          An art book or two pieces of plain paper

–          Mod Podge (Or any other PVA glue) *

–          Paint Brush *

–          Pencil

–          Separate piece of paper, in another colour.

–          Paint chips (I used 5 different colours. (you can go more than 5, but I wouldn’t go any less.)

–          Sissors.

(* Not Pictured. Sorry!)

Here’s What to do

Image

Step 1:Fold the piece in half, then up at the bottom, to and sides to create a rectangle with a line running through it like above.

Image

Step 2: Fold the paper In half then draw half a heart, staying in the rectangle that you have made.

Image

Step 3: Cut the shape out and re-open the folded piece of paper. You now have your stencil.

Image

Step 4: Place your stencil on your piece of paper or art book page, and draw around the inside. Then repeat on the second page.

 Image

Step 5: Cut up your paint chips into random shapes. Be sure to get rid of the pieces with writing or holes in it. (You can keep them if you want some added character!)

Image

Step 6: Paint the inside of the shape on the second page with glue and place the pieces inside the shape. Don’t worry if they don’t quite fit, it doesn’t have to be perfect. It can go over the edges.

 Image

Step 7: Continue until you have filled the whole shape.

Image

Step 8: Turn the page or grab your other piece of paper, and cut out the centre of the heart.

 Image

Step 9: Paint the inside of the heart with mod podge or glue to give an extra gloss and protection to guarantee that the pieces won’t fall off.

 Image

Step 10: Paint around the pieces on the second page with glue then line the first page up, with the heart and stick down.

You are finished!

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!
