Love birds – Acrylics Painting on Canvas:

Required Materials :

  • 3-4 different colours of paint – Red, Yellow, Black  & White
  • Canvas
  • Circular pouncers
  • Hanging supplies
  • Tray to hold the paint

I used round flat tip sponge brushes(pouncers) for the background.. I was after bokeh affect of a sunset scene..
Start with white in the center of the sun and add yellow, and then eventually red.. try to blend the colors so that they wont appear like patches..

You can see the pouncer brush beside the painting, used different size brushes randomly..
The main colors used in this are yellow,red, white, and black.. Basically add black and white to your colors to make it dark and lighter..
For the stroke, you just dab the pouncer in the paint(Acrylics) and put it on the canvas, and rotate it so that you get a perfect round.. Keep repeating until you get the desired background…

…plan was to use the buttons you see in the bowl, on the painting. but changed at the end and settled with just a silhouette of a tree and birds..

This is how the background looked before adding the silhouette…

Finished version – After adding a simple silhouette of a tree with love birds.. it gave a real dimension to the background.. Just an illustration done in adobe to see how would the painting look on a wall…

How to make party look hairbands

It turns out that decorate the rim of ribbon and flowers, a very simple and easy. Flowers to decorate the rim, you can buy ready-made or link, such as a hook. The main thing is to have the stem buds, which is fixed on the rim tape.

Also need to decorate the rim itself bezel, thin ribbon, glue and scissors. And, of course, the desire to ochemelymi

Required Material:

  •  narrow plastic headband (smooth and without teeth)
  •  mulberry paper flowers – flowers on wire are easier to use than on thread.  The headband shown used about 55 flowers.
  •  1/16 or 1/8 inch satin ribbon
  • E6000 glue
  • scissors

Put on the headband, measure where you would like the flowers to be.  You won’t want them in the section that tucks behind your ear.  This may also be affected by the way you style your hair.

Cut the ribbon end at a 45 degree angle.

 Glue the ribbon end on the back of the headband, let it set up for at least 15 minutes.  You want it to be in a position to start wrapping around the headband as close to the end as possible.  If you’re using a single sided satin ribbon be sure the pretty side is out.  Start wrapping the ribbon around the headband, overlapping it slightly and gluing it on the back of the headband, until the point you’ve decided to start your flowers.  Again give this some time to set up.  Make sure that every wrap of ribbon is glued in place.  You may be experiencing some web-like glue stands, try to minimize them as much as possible and you can clean off whatever is left when you finish the headband.  Prepare your flowers by bending the wire at a 90 degree angle to the front of the flower.  This is so that the flower will face up when the stem is tucked under ribbon.  Place a flower on top of the ribbon that’s already wrapped with the stem on the unwrapped part of the headband.  You can use a bit of glue to hold it if you need to.  Wrap the ribbon around the stem, and glue it on the back.  If you’re using 1/16” ribbon you’ll need to wrap it one or two more times, if you’re using 1/8” ribbon you probably won’t.  Add another flower, wrap again.  You might need a flower for every wrap, or more flowers/wraps depending on the materials you are working with and how densely packed you want the flowers to be.  Continue placing flowers and wrapping until you get to the point at the other end of the headband where you want the flowers to end.  Wrap the ribbon the rest of the way, continuing to glue it in place on the back of the headband, until you get to the end.  Cut the ribbon and firmly glue the end of the ribbon on the back of the headband. Allow to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing.  E6000 glues ribbon to plastic, it will do an even better job of gluing things to your hair.

DIY: Beautiful Snowflakes-Socket

Beautiful snowflakes-sockets of paper.

Of them can make mobile, garland. Or use as a single decoration. The sheets of A4 color copy paper glue glue stick two. For sockets diameter 10 cm (little snowflake) plates should be glued on the long side.For larger diameter outlet for short. The paper was cut into strips the width of about 5 cm for small snowflakes. And the band 7 cm large. Do not forget that for socket strips of different diameters have to be of different lengths. Put a strip on the cutting mat with centimeter markings and selling fold line folds over every centimeter. The best tool for this operation is a pen without ink. Tip: Burst folds as possible and before the paper is cut into strips. Fold accordion band at the planned folds. Then Let us openwork notch. The patterns can be very different. First issue the edge. To trim fold about five folds, accordion entire crop will not work immediately. Then, cut the patterns inside the accordion.Also small, four or five folds in portions. Prepared glue the accordion in the ring glue stick. Collect the resulting ring in the socket. In the middle of a drip a little hot glue. Hold the socket until the glue hardens. You can also use quick-drying contact adhesive. But then razetku need to commit time to glue dries. For example, some pin object (hot glue but convenient). For large snowflakes head diameter of 5 cm, for small 4 cm. The head was cut out from a dense white paper. I use “shell” with embossed watercolor. Hairstyle make a circle of colored paper. Face paint silver gel pen with glitter. Eyes pencil mark the stenciled “circle”, and then circle the pen. Garnish with the same handle hair. Big snowflakes need an extra layer between the socket and the head. Circle of paper 9 cm in diameter radial fold and cut a simple snowflake. Or use as a middle layer of openwork napkin pastry shop. Merge all layers. Ready snowflakes decorate with glitter. Apply glue PVA place you want to decorate and sprinkle with glitter. Behind glue a circle of cardboard the color “Silver.” All snowflakes different from each other. Therefore, it seems to me, is a good option for co-creation. Each will make his snowflake, and then you can collect a large garland or mobile. This tiny snowflakes.Diameter 10 cm. Photograph mobility very difficult. All revolve 🙂 Yes, still dark in the kitchen. In nature it looks much better.

How to make caterpillar – sewing patterns

I saw in a Japanese magazine for needlework picture caterpillar toy. She looked so bright and cheerful, that I could not resist and went to the store for a fleece. It wanted to make a caterpillar for my son’s close friend!

If this is a nice, friendly creature had to your taste, I tell you details about all the stages of its creation.

First I cut the pattern head caterpillar (the final segment of the body sewn on the pattern of the same) and scribbling darts.

Then determine the height of horns, cut them out of the fabric, wrenched and stuffed with synthetic padding.

Pins cemented horns on the front side of the head and the tissue along the contour of the pattern sewn two back of the head segment.

As the loops, which is tacked to the trunk, I used rep tape. Subsequently, the eyelet is attached buckle, so it is very important to select the material for it was strong and does not stretch. It will be subjected to high loads. Loops should be sewn into the center of the hole for eversion. loop size is arbitrary, it is selected empirically.

It looks like the head of a caterpillar.

And this is – the final segment of the torso.

I decided it would be more convenient if the segments of the body tracks are worn on a wide elastic band. Elastic good stretches and shrinks. its compression effect do a good job in keeping with caterpillars bull ring. Porous surfaces fleece will not let slip rings and gum will firmly push the segments to each other and do not give them to fall apart in different directions. Taurus will look unified and whole.

To the kid was nice to keep the gum in his hands, I sheathed her fleece. As an attachment, it was decided to stay on the buttons. They are quite durable and reliable. Besides the buttons fasten the child more comfortable and faster than buttons or hooks.

To caterpillar expression face constantly changing, I decided to stay at the plastic with little eyes darting pupils. Eyes glued, and blush, and mouth sewn securely.

During the crosslinking-ring segments, I was faced with the unexpected difficulties that had to be overcome by experience. The challenge was to maintain the shape of a circular segment, even after tamping, despite the ability to stretch fleece in different directions. As well as avoiding unnecessary seams are also tightening the fleece. Having tried a few options, I stopped at the next.

Be prepared to foot tracks of the same color as the ring to which they will be sewn. Decide which direction extends fleece. It is important to make all ring patterns so as to keep the same direction of the traction material, otherwise ready to ring skewed in opposite directions.

Cut fabric ring with one hole in the center (the same as in the pattern). On the front side of the fabric, place the foot. After trying a few different options, I determined that the best distance between the legs of 12 cm and kept it on all the rings. Secure the legs on the fabric using pins. Cut a second ring, but without a central opening. Apply the pattern face down on the first lap with legs. Fully sew the two circles on the outside to the outer contour.

Remove the work piece through the central hole.

The marker on the fabric circle contour of the central opening in the second round, and cut it out.

Note the pin segment, through which you will fill the workpiece and sew a hidden seam contour of the inner circle.

Firmly tamp the filler workpiece and sew the remaining hole.

Prepare multiple rings of different colors.

It seemed to me that for a given size of the tracks (including a slight compression rubber rings) will be the most appropriate 8 rings.

Still needed caterpillar. One end of the gum is tacked to the final segment. All subsequent rings are put on it in random order.

Pristegnёm head and the game can begin!

Due to the unfastened segments of the caterpillar’s body can squirm.

This sweet creature becomes not just a good kid and a soft toy. From caterpillar fun to learn colors, to determine their sequence, change the order of colored rings. You can try to count them, to learn of the caterpillar body and come up with a lot of other fun games.

If you like the track as well as I do, I suggest you the pattern that I borrowed from a Japanese magazine and slightly modified for more smooth and round rings.
