I have been pretty busy lately. With working and going to school full time I hadn’t been able to find much time to just do anything fun lately, never the less do any “creative” projects. 

So with winter break in sight, I challenged myself to do something creative everyday for 30 days.  Hoping to gain my brother’s interest, I asked him to give me a theme to go by. 

Without second thought he declared VIDEO GAMES to be our theme.  What a surprise…. –_-‘ (the boy lives by video games)  Welp, I got what I asked for and off we go.

30 Day Video Game Creativity Challenge

Day 1:

Super Mario Bros. Christmas Stocking

I sketched and painted the design on canvas fabric with acrylic paint and fabric medium. Once dried, I cut our the pattern and attached it to a stocking I made.  The name is made from Perler Melty Beads which creates the perfect pixelated look.

My brother loves it!  Whooo!  Day one down, 29 more to go!

  I finally got to go to school this summer and didn’t do too shabby.  It has been 7 years since I was last into classroom and was very nervous and anxious about the outcome. For the summer semester, one class is two hours a day, four days a week for 6 weeks.

  I took 4 classes total.  English Composition I, Spanish I, Psychology and Concepts of Physical Activity (aka Adult P.E.) each resulting in an A.  I must say, I’m pretty proud of myself.  Starting off with a 4.0 GPA!  Image1

Now on to my next obsession, galaxies.   Something that is so colorful, wild, and serene at the same time.  Take a look at what I’ve done so far.

Painted Wine Glass from Wine Night

Typical wine glass painted with dishwasher safe glass enamel.

 

I’m sure this is just the beginning of this little love affair, just the same way I was obsessed with octopi, odd cupcakes and the color purple.



DIY Faux Porcelain Pottery

While looking for way to fill up my living room with stylish accessories with out spending my ENTIRE paycheck, I found a pretty simple tutorial from P.S. I made this on how to make a plain bottles, cans, vases, etc. look like porcelain pottery.

Okay, neat.  But the simple dot design was not doing it for me.   I wanted to take a step a little further.  Time to make something AWESOME!!!!  My inspiration came from cake piping and henna tattoos.  Take a look….

Ingredients:

1 large ugly pink vase from Goodwill ($5)

1 bottle of white T-Shirt Puff Paint ($2)

1 can of white spray paint ($5)

A lot of patience and hand stretches.

After finding a few patterns I was happy with, I used a fine tip permanent marker to draw the design on the vase, using a Goo Gone soaked wash rag for any miss ups.

Once the design was drawn, I then carefully “piped” with the Puff Paint leaving a lifted texture when dry.

I then lightly spray painted the entire vase with a satin finish white spray paint to give a more finished look.   Let it dry over night, and fill with beautiful floral pieces and enjoy!
