Vintage dictionary prints - Mai Autumn. After waiting way too long for my flat tire to be fixed just now, i am glad to be back inside the air conditioning to tell u guys about my newest development - vintage dictionary prints!
A while back, i came across this falling apart dictionary in the bin of a book giveaway and had a little eureka moment. i'm starting a whole line of prints done on these gorgeously aged pages. this book would have been taking up space in a landfill, and the amazing history on these pages would have been lost. but now, this book is being repurposed into one of a kind pieces of art! You can check out the first of the series over on etsy - august printed on a vintage book page - and there are going to be many more titles to come.
For the Love of Buttons. By craftyamy | One of my fondest memories as a child is going through my great-grandmother’s button collection (which became my mother’s).
I would sort by size . . . then re-sort by color . . . then sort again some other way. I truly believe that buttons had a huge part in developing my creativity. I have a huge button collection that you can see here. Inkodye - Light-sensitive dyes for textiles and more.

By craftyamy | I’m addicted to spray paint — I have about a billion cans of it left over from large and no-so-large projects, and it needs a place to go.
More accurately, it needs a project to go on. Solid perfume pocket watch locket. Try as I might, I cannot seem to grasp even the most basic of feminine beauty rituals.
I’m constantly struggling to master rudimentary hair and makeup techniques, and my one-time foray into the “subtle” art of perfume left everyone in the room with burning nostrils. This DIY solid perfume locket from artisanal perfumer Mandy Aftel is something I can definitely stand behind, though. Mandy only uses pure and natural ingredients to create her perfumes, and this solid scent can be easily applied with no risk of over-dousing. The old pocket watch appeals to my tomboy side, and I love its versatility; you can wear it as a necklace or pin, or simply tuck it into your pocket or purse.
I can’t wait to make one and give my feminine sensibilities a little boost :) Thanks for sharing this tutorial with us, Mandy! Halloween Craft #1. See how I named it #1?
Makes you think there will be a #2, huh? Maybe a #3? Yes! DIY $5 Flower Vase! So, I finally just changed all the burnt out light bulbs in my house.
So now my left with old light bulbs and being the environmentalist I am, I do not want to throw them out. I want to make art with them! So I was looking at different crafts and I came across this vase.
Vintage. Accessories. Jewelry. T-Shirts. Animal Lipstick Art – Painted Lips. While hunting through Deviantart.com I found a very clever body paint artist, Viridis-Somnio.
She has been extremely creative with her lipstick application and painted her lips to resemble some animals in a very unique way. It certainly doesn’t hurt that she has a killer set of lips to work with and her attention to detail is nothing to stick your tongue out at. Don’t give this art the kiss off, come and get a taste of her lipstick artwork. We look forward to seeing more of her art, whether it is on her luscious lips, other body parts or whatever.
