Tweets by @BooooooomTweets about "@booooooom" Kate Hadfield Designs I have really enjoyed being more artsy and painterly with my new releases lately and so when I saw April’s BYOC palette I knew straightaway that I wanted to get my paints and vintage book pages out again to make something “joodly”!!

Headband Refashion Our headband had a flower that was starting to look a little tired and worn so we made it new again! This braided ribbon could embellish many things— a hair clip would be cute too! These headbands would make great handmade gifts for little girls to make each other! Woven Ribbon Headband How to paint trees, watercolor free lesson Mix a green using yellow ochre and ultramarine. Using the side of the brush, drag it across the rough paper to produce a broken effect, leaving sky holes between the foliage. Add some more ultramarine to darken mix.

Dog toy To make this great toy for your dog I used, 12 strings t-shirt yarn from about 1,2 yard long. You devide the string in four parts from 3 strings and start the scoubidou technic, one I did with the round technic and one with the straight technic When you want to see the full explenation of the technic you can find it here.

The Silk Vortices of Akiko Ikeuchi (click images for detail) I am thrilled to share with you the work of Japanese artist Akiko Ikeuchi. Born in Tokyo in 1964, Akiko received a doctorate in painting from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. For over two decades she has been hanging her delicately crafted string sculptures in galleries around Japan, Korea, and New York. The installations are constructed from extremely delicate silk threads, and despite the chaotic appearance of the knotted webs Akiko plans each work as an architect would plan a building with precision blueprints that involve a complex internal framework.

a faithful attempt This is a fun and relatively simple project that mimics the look of batik fabric without all the hassle of using melted wax, fabric and an iron.

I first showed students photo examples of batik fabric from Indonesia and showed photos of the process. Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial You’ve probably seen these little puffy origami stars before.

You can buy lucky star pre-cut strips from origami stores, but you can just as easily make your own from medium weight coloured paper, e.g. scrapbooking paper, or even strips cut from magazine pages – as the strips are so narrow, the original text or image won’t be obvious in the finished star. Anti-clockwise from top left: pre-cut strips, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, magazine page. Now on to the tutorial! To give you an idea of size, I’ve made stars in 3 different sizes to show you:

Watercolor Mug Contributor post by Caitlin of The Merrythought Lately, I've felt like someone could come in and splash some watercolor patterns all over everything I own and I wouldn't mind it one bit. Unfortunately, in a few months, I'm sure I would be a bit annoyed with that decision.
