THE SUN WAS HIGH: DIY // Galaxy Jeans

THE SUN WAS HIGH: DIY // Galaxy Jeans
I don't want to enter in a "I liked galaxies before it was cool to like them" monologue, but I've always been obsessed with outer space! My brother and I used to visit the local library and borrow tons of books about galaxies, spaceships and planets. The obsession stuck and now, even my design portfolio is filled with space-inspired pieces. There is something so fascinating and mysterious about coloured clouds, planets and stars... Galaxy print clothes have gained phenomenal popularity over the last three years, but oddly enough, they never made it to the racks of affordable chain stores. This afternoon, I found a pair of old washed out black jeans I wore in high school and I decided to make my own non-pricey galaxy-inspired jeans! You'll need: - A pair of black jeans. - A spray bottle filled with two parts bleach (javel) and one part cold water - Some acrylic paints. - An old toothbrush - A sponge - Little containers/plates to mix the paint 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Greenhouses are usually glazed structures, but are typically expensive to construct and heat throughout the winter. A much more affordable and effective alternative to glass greenhouses is the walipini (an Aymara Indian word for a "place of warmth"), also known as an underground or pit greenhouse.

Sometimes I need a quick idea. Other times, I just need a whole pile of names for Non-Player Characters (NPCs). Occasionally, I need to geek out on numbers, work out some odds, or integrate some word puzzles into a game.

40 Must-See Photos From The Past The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” was coined by American newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane in 1911.

How-To: Make a Nebula Pillow using Ink Effects from DecoArt This month’s Whimseybox included samples of a new product, called Ink Effects, from our friends at DecoArt. Ink Effects is a fabric transfer ink that allows you to paint an image on ordinary printer paper and then iron it on to a textile. Rather than sitting on top of the fabric like a stiff iron-on transfer, the Ink Effects ink settles in smoothly to the fabric with little distortion of the feel of the fabric. Ink Effects colors blend nicely together, and when I saw my collection of colors, I instantly knew what I wanted to try my hand at.

The Surreal Paintings of Vladimir Kush The Surreal Paintings of Vladimir Kush posted by Damian M. under Photography on Mar 21st, 2010 with 32 Comments 21 Mar 0 Share Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought. Toronto-based Mari Santos, on the other hand, is such a genius with a pair of scissors we want to hitchhike across the border, kidnap her, head back south, and then set her to work against her will on the oversize T-shirts we seem to get for free by the pound. Except that it would probably be illegal.
