DIY It - Color Blocked Galaxy Mirrors

Have you all ever heard of alcohol inks? They are alcohol based inks that are great for porous surfaces. They blend easily and swirl together to create really unique patterns and colors. I recently got a few to experiment with and I am hooked! They are so much fun (albeit a lot messy) and make the prettiest patterns ever. Let's just say that after a day of playing with the inks, I created quite a few new DIY's. First up are these color blocked galaxy mirrors. You all loved my easy color blocked mirrors using metallic foil vinyl, so these were a the next logical step up. Well, logical in a crafters mind! Ha! 




Just look at that amazing galaxy color swirl! These mirrors again use a few basic craft store supplies and only a few colors of alcohol inks, but the effect is out of this world. Ha. See what I did there?

Make It - Easy Embroidery Hoop Art

Are you as enamored with prints and patterns as I am? I love browsing through stores just staring at all the pretty surface designs. After spying a few super cute patterned paper plates and file folders at Target recently on one of my browsing sessions, I decided to buy a few random patterned items to turn into a little DIY wall art. A hour or so later and I had the simplest DIY patterned wall art to give me tons of patternly inspiration.



Can you believe these all came from either paper plates or file folders from Target?
