Inside: how to make a tp steampunk mini album with pocket pages   Do you ever see an object and think “what can I make out of it”? It happens to me all the time and I think it’s a common crafter’s point of view. For sometime now I keep looking at tp rolls and think what a shame to throw these away… there must be something I can do with them…     TP STEAMPUNK MINI ALBUM   As the title say this recycled project has three elements: Recycling TP rolls and using them for crafts. Making a steampunk project with an industrial look embellishments. Building an interactive mini album with pockets.   TP ROLL CRAFTS   TP roll crafts are very popular for a number of reasons: They are free! There is always a fresh suppy.

  Inside: what to do with an old dry paint brush and how to easily recycle it to a beautiful art project   The one thing I’m very bad at in regards to crafting is cleaning! I never clean my stencils and I usually forget to clean my brushes. That means I have a lot of old dry paint brushes in my craft room. Even though they are dry and most probably beyond salvage I still can’t throw them away so I come up with ways to recycle them!     HOW TO CLEAN OLD DRY PAINT BRUSH   I you are like me and have old dry paintbrushes there might still be a way to save them: For oil-based paints, varnishes, lacquers – follow the manufacturer’s instructions to select the proper cleaning solvent (mineral spirits or paint thinner for paint and varnish, denatured alcohol for shellac, etc.). Pour the solvent into a container and dip the paint brush into …


  Inside: how to craft your paper scraps and make a clever and fast junk journal   I’m not a hoarder! But I’ll admit I hate throwing away paper scraps, even the small ones. I feel like I’m throwing away an important resource and it just makes me so uncomfortable I simply don’t throw any paper scraps. That created another problem of piles of craft paper piles that need using…     WHAT ARE PAPER SCRAPS   This might sounds like a stupid question but the definition of scraps is a subjective definition. Some will consider a small 2 inches piece like a paper scrap and others will consider it as trash and throw it away. So the first thing you need to do when crafting your paper scraps is to decide how big is your pile and sort through it. Once you do that using your scraps will be much easier!   HOW TO CRAFT YOUR PAPER SCRAPS   …

Mixed Media Art Journal Page: STRONG

Lately life is not easy. We are going through a tough time here when rockets are flying and terrorists want to destroy us. In times like this it’s a little hard to create but I have come to realize I need to force myself to create because it distracts me and helps me with the everyday stress. The best thing to create, while also inspiring yourself is an art journal page with a quite to empower you. This is one of those rare times when I started a project with very little in my head. Meaning, I didn’t know what I wanted to create and I didn’t have a picture in my head like I usually do. I knew what colors I wanted ad that was about it. From there I just started to create, using my favorite mediums and supplies, basically trying to have fun. working with so many bright colors and an inspirational quote was very liberating and …

I'm Grateful Mini Envelope Box

The past few days were crazy. Our country has been under rockets’ attacks and life has been scary and stressful. I found it really hard to create anything, my mind just didn’t have the energy to think about and be full of ideas like it usually is. I asked for some advice from my dear FB friends and they said “start with something small”. Well…I decided enough is enough, I would force myself to create something, something small. During the past few days I had a lot of time to think about what I’m grateful for. Rockets tend to put things in perspective…I wanted those things I’m grateful for to be with me all the time so I’ll never forget, so I created a little mini envelope box to hold them. This box will be my treasure box filled with photos of my family and friends and small cards with inspiring words and sentences written on them, the kind of …

Mixed Media Double Canvas Set

I decided to change my wall art a little, so I created a canvases set. A set is basically one piece of art that spreads on more than one canvas. In my case two 6″ X 6″ canvases. When you create a set you work on the canvases as if they were one. So the theme, color scheme and embellishments will be the same across the board. The divided yet cohesive look to a canvas set gives it a unique look and draws the eyes to move from one section to the other and by doing so capturing the entire piece. I started the set with adding modeling paste texture to the background and pieces of tissue paper for layering effect. Then I added distress stains in different colors and blended them together. My focal point is a leaf ribbon that spreads from top to bottom and is embellished with flowers that were colored with the same distress stains. I …

Mixed Media Art Journal Page: AIM

We all have our own aims or goals in life, the trick is not only to set aims for ourselves but to stay focused and determined enough to keep walking on the road to fulfill them. But sometimes it feels like that famous sentence: “Man makes plans and God laughs”. We set goals that we want to achieve but life takes us to completely different directions or is it? Do we set the right goals for ourselves or there is a hidden hand that points the direction we should go to? I think we want things and we set aims to achieve it but at the end of the day if we do what we love, believe in it and in us the universe will take care of the rest. This week’s video tutorial us all about the aims of our lives. I created a motivational mixed media art journal page with a quote that talks exactly about this. My art journal …
