marble it yourself

Marbling Glassware

With Crafting Community fast approaching (it begins tomorrow!), we’ve been in the crafting + DIY spirit more than ever. I’m really excited about our paper marbling workshop (think bookmarks, postcards) and was completely blown away when I saw this amazing glassware marbling DIY by the ever creative gals of HonestlyWTF.

I think it’s safe to say they’ve completely taken marbling to a whole new level. Such a great way to add some color and pizzaz to your tabletop with things you most likely have laying around the house! Check out the full tutorial here.

Check out this weekend DIY project! Haha, I’m only kidding.  Lithuanian textile artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene drills holes into old car doors and hoods and then cross stitches them. Let’s categorize this one a VIY (View It Yourself) project.

papermation

Jen Stark - How to Become a Millionaire in 100 DaysWhile paper is one of the most basic of materials, artist Jen Stark manages to use it in a way that is not only beautiful but truly innovative. Drawing inspiration from microscopic patterns in nature, wormholes and even sliced anatomy, Jen creates mind-blowing sculptures that are captivating and psychedelic that literally are a kaleidoscope of colors.

Aside from drawings and sculptures, Jen’s myriad of talents include stop motion animation – using paper of course. Get ready for a full on explosion of shapes, colors and a whole lotta fun!

Mirrored Prism

During my internet travels, I recently came across The Wild Unknown. Brainchild of Brooklyn-based artist Kim Krans, The Wild Unknown is focused on making simple, thoughtful, handcrafted goods. My absolute favorite are these one-of-a-kind prisms that Kim creates.

I mean, how cool is the Mirrored Prism which houses a tiny chime on the inside? Take a look at all of her prisms here!
