Dictionary Page Art

Dictionary Page Art:





















This is probably one of the funnest DIY to do! It's just super easy and you don't need to be good with your fingers or in art, you just need to know how to use a computer and a printer.

What you'll need:
- picture of a dictionary page (you can either make a photocopy of your own dictionary page or pick one from the internet.)
- picture of whatever you like to add on your dictionary page (I chose a deer)
- printer
- scissors (optional)
- picture frames (optional)

How to do it:
1. Choose your dictionary page picture. This is my one:
Print it out.

















2. Now put your dictionary page back into the printer to print your next picture on it.
To do this you have to put the page the right way up or it might not overlay.
I put my dictionary page face up and the bottom in first.
















3. Get your second picture ready. Mine was a deer:
Print it out.


4. It should look like this:

5. You could trim the edges so it fits into the picture frame.

Here are some other ones I made as well!

So how easy was that?!

If you can't be bothered to figure out which side you have to put the dictionary page in, you could always use Photoshop and overlay them straight away and print them out at the same time.

Enjoy!

DIY Bleach Stamp Pad



DIY Bleach Stamp Pad:


What you'll need:
- scraps of felt
- rubber band
- bleach
- container
- stamp pad
- stamp
- shirt or fabric
- cardboard (so then the bleach wont bleed through)

How to do it:
1. Stack the felt together.


2. Fold them in half.

3. Secure them with rubber bands.

4. Put the stamp pad in the container and pour bleach over it to soak it completely.

5. Use the stamp normally just like you would do if you were using ink. Don't press to hard, just cover the stamp with enough bleach.

6. Then stamp all over your fabric. Make sure to have the cardboard behind if your are using fabric and if you're stamping on a shirt, put the cardboard inside so it doesn't bleed through the front and back.


7. Once you've finished stamping, toss your shirt into the washing machine.

When it is dry it is ready to wear!

Enjoy!
