DIY Hand Stamped Swaddle Blankets. I can't believe I only have a month (or less) left before our bitty baby girl arrives! I've been trying to do my best to prepare for her arrival amidst all the many things going on here - back-to-school, illustration work, blogging and more! Little by little things are starting to look like a baby just might be coming to stay in our home soon.

Last week I decided to create a few hand stamped swaddle blankets made out of a gauzy muslin fabric. I like how simple they were to do and how graphic they turned out. To make these I cut up large squares of muslin fabric. The trick for me was to apply the paint to the stamp with a paint brush before stamping onto the muslin.

After hand stamping the blanket to my liking, I hemmed the edges of the muslin. I then created another one from a pretty salmon pink fabric found on my LA Fabric District shopping spree (I think it's the same fabric as Dana used in her tutorial! Rain drops?

Makeup Tips, Beauty Reviews, Tutorials | Miss Natty's Beauty Diary Blog: Step by Step Smokey Taupe Eyeshadow Tutorial! One of my favorite eyeshadows is MAC Satin Taupe. It's a really pretty frosty taupe (gray brown) that looks great with a variety of looks. It looks amazing paired with brown and burgundy - One of my favorite ways of wearing it is by applying a dark brown base to my lids and layering Satin Taupe over top, to intensify and slightly deepen the color, then apply a soft golden brown through the crease, and a reddened brown through the outer-v. The burgundy mixed with the taupe almost gives off a slightly mauve/plum tone that really brings out the green in my eyes. I'll be doing just that in this tutorial, but I'm making the look a bit more dramatic by adding black eyeshadow and liner. To make this look more daytime appropriate: The black shadow, liner and faux lashes are what really intensify this look, so for something a little lighter and more wearable during the day, skip step 7, 9, 10 and 12.
