7 projets pour donner vie à Star Wars – DIY Crafts



La communauté des makers est, d’une manière générale, de grands fans de Star Wars. Heck, même les gens qui disent que Star Wars n’est rien de plus que des sorciers de l’espace, et que Star Trek est la véritable royauté de la science-fiction admettront que les robots et les sorciers de l’espace sont toujours assez cool.

Aujourd’hui, nous célébrons tous, que nous soyons de grands fans ou non, alors voici sept projets géniaux pour faire ressortir le magicien de l’espace en vous.

Je devais mettre mon projet personnel en premier. Appelez ça de l’ego, mais c’est aussi probablement le seul que vous terminerez en une journée (à l’exception des cupcakes).

Bien sûr, beaucoup d’entre vous ne seraient pas satisfaits d’une simple marionnette. En voici un avec des tripes électroniques pour vous satisfaire.

Bien avant BB-8, beaucoup d’entre nous étaient obsédés par l’idée de piloter un de ces speeders…

Bubble Drawing Bookmark – DIY Crafts



As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This post may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.

One of my favorite things to do is make my own bookmarks. I’ve made a variety of DIY bookmarks using stickers, acrylic paint, paint pens and more. I’ve even made my own pressed flower bookmarks. For this bubble drawing bookmark I used watercolors but you could create the same pattern using any medium you like. 

My favorite part about drawing bubbles is that they don’t have to be perfect. Don’t worry about your bubbles being perfect circles. In fact, the bubble pattern is more interesting as you vary the size and shape of the bubble drawings. 

Bubble Drawing Bookmark

How to Make a Bubble Drawing Bookmark

Step 1. Set-up your work area. I like to make sure I have a paper towel, clean water cup and a clean working space for my project.

Step 2. Start by painting or drawing just the outline of the bubble drawing. This make it easier to control the size and shape.

Color Wheel Painting Technique – DIY Crafts



As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. This post may contain affiliate links. See our full disclosure here.

Typically a color wheel is a visual guide for artists and designers to help them understand color combinations and provide guidance for creating designs that have good color composition. Taking my love of color and the color wheel as inspiration, I’ve created my favorite painting technique that I call color wheel painting.

This is a fun and easy painting technique that doesn’t take long to master and can be done by anyone. The best part is that it’s very quick and in just minutes you can achieve the final result.

Color Wheel Painting

Favorite Paint for Color Wheel Painting

Acrylic paint is the best medium for this painting technique but gouache could work as well. The key is to look for thick acrylic paint. You don’t want anything too watery or it could be difficult to blend. Here are a few of my favorite brands for this technique:
