My weeding tool

I like weeding a lot ( yes i know most people think i am crazy) But i also like to make things as easy as possible.e
When i use to weed my project i found the vinyl pieces every where even in my hair but not anymore.

I found that ring polish holders are a perfect addition to my weeding tools.
Because the holder is made of silicone the vinyl wont stick to it and you can empty the ring with no trouble.

How to make a text board in Inkscape

Inkscape

Inkscape is one of the few programs i know that is free and has a lot of features.

How ever if you don’t take the proper steps in inkscape it can be a very frustrating program.

Iam a visual person meaning i rather see things done then read about it. When i need to explain something which can’t be put in words within a few lines i rather make a video.

What is this video about?

  • How to make a text file in inkscape
  • How to save text as a svg file

Hot mess Canvas

Hot mess Canvas

Many of  you have seen the HOT MESS CANVAS on many Facebook groups

You start with a canvas and paint it with different colors. ( I only used 2 blue and grey) these colors will be your design colors.

This is also a fun project to do with your kids for fathers day. You give the the canvas, a brush and paint and let them paint it any way they want to. In de mean time you can make your design and cut it out on your machine with vinyl.

I made this text which is also available in my shop as cut file but also as a vinyl sticker.

When the canvas is dry you can apply the vinyl.

(This can be tricky because the paint can give some trouble to get the vinyl to stick. Use a hair blower to get it to stick to the canvas and make sure your transfer tape isn’t to sticky)

As you can see on the picture i only used blue and grey and put black vinyl on it.

You can leave it like this i like it this way as well but then again you don’t  have the awesome effect i show you in the next picture.

Now my text has these awesome colors and you have a perfect gift.

I chose to paint my canvas white again and when the paint was almost dry i removed the black vinyl.

How fun is this to do this with your kids for fathers day or just make a awesome hot mess for your self as wall decor.

Happy crafting
