Have some family pictures sitting around? Scrapbooking is a fun way to remember great family events.
What are your favorite family photos? Mine are from when I was a kid. I still have the black and white ones. I created a nice vintage book to show them in for a few years.I also have a few of my own photos that I've shot with my family, and I have photos of my mom and dad.
I'm a great photographer, but I'm always looking for new ways to tell a story. I'm also a big fan of vintage and vintage inspired art.
A shadow box is a shallow (3 inch) deep picture frame. The frame has a glass cover. You choose a theme for the box and put related artifacts inside. The box is a 3 inch wide by 3 inch high by 3 inch deep. The box is made out of a durable material and features a frame.
Every shadow box is different, but the following are some common themes:
Shadow boxes are not just for kids, but can be used for adults as well. Adults need to.. get the theme. You can also use shadow boxes to make a small, inexpensive gift. Give the gift to a friend, spouse, or even a child.
Potpourri smells very good. I recommend this craft in the fall when spices are popular. Making potpourri is a great way to use up leftover spices.
Gather all the spices you'll need and make a small pot of the ingredients. Add the water and stir until the spices are dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until the mixture is smooth and the flavors are well blended.
You can also add a little lemon juice or honey to the pot to sweeten the mixture. When you add the honey/lemon, the mixture will bubble and thicken.
Pour the mixture into the jar and close the lid. Use a rubber spatula to smooth the mixture. When the mixture is smooth, you can remove the lid and allow to sit for a few days to allow the fragrance to spread.
I recommend putting the jar in your kitchen. It won't take long to get the scent of the spice out. It will smell like a nice, fresh garden. I also like to put the jar on a counter top and leave it there for several days. I've had the jar sitting on the counter for a few days and it still smells fresh.
Paint a picturesque scene on canvas. You can get a canvas at all major retailers. For more information on the art of painting, see the Art of Painting website.

The following are some of the most common types of canvas:
Cotton canvas is made from a natural fiber that is woven into a fabric to create a durable, water-resistant canvas. It is the most common canvas in the United States. Cotton canvas is used by artists for many different projects, including art, architecture, and landscape painting.
Wood canvas is made from a natural wood that is woven into a fabric. Wood canvas is used by artist who are looking for a canvas that is durable, water-resistant, and can be used for many different projects.
Cloth canvas is the least expensive canvas type. It is made from a durable burlap fabric with a thin layer of fiberglass. It is great for use with watercolor paints.
Acrylic paint works well!
If you still have a desktop computer, you probably have an ugly computer box sitting around. A fun way to spruce these up is to paint a nice scene on them. I've painted a flower before.
Acrylic paint works well! I've also painted some other things on my computers. I've painted a computer's keyboard, a computer's monitor. Although I've never painted a computer screen, I've heard that glow in the dark paint works well on it.
My main advice when painting a computer part is to sand it and then paint it. The paint will stick to the surface of the computer, and the surface of will be nice and smooth when you're done.
It's a lot of work to paint a computer, but it's worth it.If you're not a computer enthusiast, then this probably won't interest you. I'm just a lady who likes to paint things.
In this digital age, it is so nice to receive a personal letter in snail-mail. You can get blank note cards and then write pretty calligraphy on them. Use colored ink to really get fancy. You can also use a pen and paper to write on a card. For a really nice paper, try a card with an embossed image of a horse.
Stamps are a great way to add a personalized touch to your letter. You can use a stamp for a variety of reasons. For example, you can stamp your letter to say that you're a fan of a certain book or movie. Or you can do it to say that you like a certain color.
Although I don't think cards are really necessary now, they make very good gifts. You can create a card that says something like, “I love you” or “I love you so much.” The recipient will be very excited when they open the card.
If you want to add a little extra to your letter, you can add a few fun little words or phrases to the back of it.

Does your house have an old door with many scratches? A great way to spruce it up is to pain the door a nice bright color. This transforms the look of a house.
If you have a lot of old doors, you can also paint the inside of the doors. Paint the inside of the doors with a bright color. This will make the house look more modern and fresh. You can also use a contrasting color.

Kids of all ages love to tie-dye. Ties dyed in the color of the season are great for a variety of occasions. For example, you can use the vibrant colors of spring to make a statement on your wedding day.
To make the most of your tie dye, be sure to use high-quality ties and a quality dyeing tool. Never use a cheap tie dye. A cheap tie dye can leave your tie in a ragged mess.
The most important thing you need to know about tie dye is that it's not safe to use on your skin. It's important to use gloves to prevent your hands from getting burned.
Experiment with different colors and shades of tie dye to see what works best for you. Blue and yellow tie dye are great for summer, but if you want to go for a more subdued look, try a mix of red, orange and yellow tie dye. You can also use tie dye to create a more sophisticated look. For example, consider pairing blue and black tie dye with a floral print.
Paper machete involves creating a paste, saturating paper in the paste, and covering an object. The paper dries hard. You can cover a balloon to form a mask. Pop the balloon after the paper has dried.
The best masks are made with a water-based paste, and they are easy to make. You can also use a wax-based paste too if you are in a rush. The wax base will allow it to dry faster. I recommend trying both and seeing what works best for you.
After your mask has dried, paint it with a light coat of clear acrylic paint. This will make the mask look more like a paper mache. I recommend using a thinner paint like Krylon or Krylon Clear.The paint will also help protect the mask from the elements.
