Customize Your Party Hats - FREE Printable

Make your own party hats with this free printable template! opaque Gelly Roll Moonlight pens are perfect for decorating the black or craft paper. You can use either the 06 fine point Gelly Roll Moonlight or the 10 bold Gelly Roll Moonlight - the decision really depends on what you're drawing. It was easier to do the detailed patterns in the circles with the finer nib and easier to use a bigger one on the polka dots.

Optical Illusion Project for Kids

This project comes to us courtesy of Ana Dziengel, creator of the imaginative kids' science and craft blog Babble Dabble Do, and was sponsored by Sakura. Today we are making thaumatropes. A thuamaotrope is a classic optical illusion toy consisting of a card with two different pictures on each side; when spun rapidly the pictures appear to combine. Because we are playing with pattern rather than a picture I gave our optical illusion toy it's own name: Decotropes. 'Trope' is the part of the word that means turning around and 'Deco' stands for decorative. My favorite types of projects are those that get YOU thinking creatively by asking YOU to add your artistic touch. Decotropes are just this type of project. And if you try this project I'd love to see what you make! Use the hashtag #decotrope on Instagram and post a pic/video there!

After months of browsing pretty planner blogs, I decided to buy my first planner.

So I thought I'd make a series of videos that explore different DIY ideas for planners.

Sakura Solid Marker: Art Journal Application

Sakura's Solid Marker is a solidified paint marker typically used for Industrial purposes. However, in this video, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer of Balzer Designs shares tips for using Solid Markers in art journals. She likes them because they'll write on porous and non-porous surfaces. They're opaque, which is perfect for layering. And they're waterproof and permanent once dry! PREVENT GRAFFITI! This product is intended for industrial or home use only. Defacing public or private property is illegal under state and local laws and possession of such products is similarly illegal for minors.

How to Draw Illuminated Letters

Illuminated letters are colorful, illustrated letters that are decorated with gold or silver. In early manuscripts, they served as placeholders in the text, and added interest to documents. . Illuminated letters were traditionally created using real gold in the form of a fine powder. You can still purchase real gold powder or gold leaf. However, this technique is expensive and complex. Luckily, there's an easier way to achieve the metallic appearance of gold with Pentouch valve-type paint markers.
