page corner bookmarks | I Could Make That This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley. For the monster-loving adults in the room, try some googly-eyed paper monster wine charms. What you’ll need: Putting it all together: 1) Follow steps 2 and 3 from above.

Play The 7 Modes in 7 Days (Tabs Incl.) Photo by Marta Monleón Modes are used in all kinds of musical styles like Jazz, Rock, Metal, Flamenco, etc. They create a certain mood or feel to your playing. If you feel like you are stuck playing solos using just Major/Minor or Pentatonic/Blues scales all the time, you’re ready to call on the modes and dive a little deeper. When I first got introduced to modes I was a little bit overwhelmed, but also excited to explore this whole new world of boundless possibilities. I soon realized it’s all about the journey and not the destination, so enjoy the process! There are 7 modes which can be derived from the major scale: 1 – Ionian 2 – Dorian 3 – Phrygian 4 – Lydian 5 – Mixolydian 6 – Aeolian 7 – Locrian Each mode starts and stops on a different note within the major scale. In this post we take the C major scale to explain the modes, but you can derive the 7 modes from any major scale in any key. I challenge you to understand the basics and work your way through each mode in 7 days.

Like an artist by =JellyVampire on deviantART The Fox Is Black » Bach’s Cantata 147, ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’ Played On a Giant Wooden Xylophone In a Forest This is probably the largest, least creative title for a post ever, but it’s also one of the most descriptive as well. The video is a commercial by DOCOMO for the Touch Wood SH-08C, a limited edition phone of which there are only 15,000 being made. But honestly I could care less about the phone, this commercial is a thousand times more cool. With a Passion for Skateboarding: Creative Art Sculptures by Haroshi Now that’s a sick madness!

Mesmerizing Mixed Media Portraits (12 total) Using a variety of different tools including a bic pen, watercolors and Chinese ink, artist Florian Nicolle creates amazing, mixed media portraits. After a rigorous amount of drawing and painting, she then adds texture and detail using Photoshop. As she explains to us, "I try to create an image that retains its freshness of the first paint stroke, the expressions of the line have to be very free and spontaneous..I draw a picture as if I wrote a text, with the same tool, the same freedom, with erasures, lines, scribbles etc..." While she doesn't necessarily have a favorite piece, she admires the work of graphic designers and illustrators such as Russ Mills, Martijn Van Dam, Kxx, Peter Jaworowski, Joshua M.
