do you have any tattoo?

Do you like tattoos? Do you have any? I literally love that tattooed dolls. They are created by Mimi Kirchner, each one is one of a ind, and she projected both designs and patterns. They are made in series, but each is unique in its' fabrics and details.

embrodery techniques

Erika Kern shows how using different embroidery techniques can dramatically change the look of a simple line drawing pattern.
First image:
The pattern is a simple outline made so that you can add as much or as little detail as you'd like.
Second image: The pattern looks great just on its own. I stitched it with a stemstitch and splitstitch using all six strands of the floss. This is great for when you want a project done fast because you can easily finish it in one to two days.
Third one:
The same pattern can be stitched in many ways, from right to left: outline with pen and ink–style shading, full-color fill, and black outline. Simply beautiful!

white rabbit

She is Stephanie Metz, she sculpts in wool in order to explore and exploit its unique physical and conceptual possibilities. To create wool sculpture she felts and works wool with a hand-held felting needle to create three-dimensional solid sculpture. The majority of her felted wool sculpture is self-supporting, however standing figures incorporate a simple wire armature for rigidity. It's amazing the way she can create figures from animal world!

a vase with a a table

Here is the way you can create a vase with a table founded on Apartment Therapy. If you have wood tables and a creative open minds, you can add an extra dimension and wow factor to the space.
Find a tall vase that expands in size from bottom to top (the V-shaped vase pictured works perfectly).
Measure the center diameter of the vase, this will be the place where the vase will fit and hold in the table.

Cut the circular piece out of the wood, s
and the wood to a smooth grain. Place your pretty vase in the circular hole.
You won't need glue at all for this project.
The hold will hold the vase and you'll need to take the vase out to clean it, add water, etc.

home sweet home /13

Elena and Teo are partners in their own architecture firm PorterFanna. They live since 3 years in a 500 sqft studio loft coop in Brooklyn.
They are going to have a baby so with a few pen strokes and a new attitude, their ideas for space efficiency became plans for a baby room instead of an office and a playpen instead of storage.

matchboxes

Here is a post of something I've found on one of my favourite blog that talks about graphic design: Grain edit. They are super cool matchbox covers designed by Cruz Novillo + Olmos. The matchboxes feature an illustration of an animal for each letter of the alphabet.

popcorn balls

Today I'm going to share a nice receipe that I've found on elsie marley's blog. How to make popcorn balls.
Ingredients:
7 cups of popcor
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla and
2 drops of food color if you feel like it

First make popcorn. Be sure to pick all the unpopped kernels out or you will break a tooth on one. Now put together in a sauce pan sugar, water, cron syrup, salt and butter. If you have a candy thermometer put it in the pan, if not have a small bowl full of ice water next to the stove. Cook the delicious butter and sugar mixture until it hits 250 degrees. It will color a little when it’s done and the ball shouldn’t be rock hard, but should give a little under pressure.
When it’s done, take it off the heat right away and add vanilla and food color. Now pour the syrup all over the popcorn stirring quickly. It’s nice to have another person help at this point, but you can manage by yourself just fine. Let it cool a minute or two and make balls. If it’s sticky you can butter your hands a bit and then shape them. Voila! popcorn balls.
