DIY bleach painted shirt/ Uradi sam: Dekorisanje majice izbeljivačem


Materijal/Supplies:
-izbeljivač tkanine/household bleach
-mala četkica od small synthetic paint brush
-tamno obojena pamučna majica/dark colored cotton top
-parče čvrstog kartona/ cardboard
-bela kreda/white chalk
-plastična bočica/small plastic container
Upzorenje: Zaštitite oči, kožu i garderobu od kontakta sa izbeljivačem!
Warning: Always protect eyes, skin and clothing from coming into contact with the bleach!
Nacrtajte željeni dizajn kredom direktno na majicu, ili precrtajte sa papira ako vam je lakše.
Draw desired design on your shirt with white chalk.
Stavite karton u majicu. Ovo će obezbediti ravnu površinu po kojoj možete da "slikate" izbeljivačem i takođe će zaštititi zadnju stranu majice od izbeljivača.
Place a flat sheet of cardboard inside your top. This will provide an even surface for you to create desired design and will stop the bleach from bleeding through to the back of your shirt.
Počnite da prelazite preko crteža kredom nerazređenim izbeljivačem u malim potezima, vodeći računa da vam izbeljivač ne prska okolo. Tkanina će brzo upiti izbeljivač, ali ćete posle kratkog vremena primetiti da tkanina počinje da bledi.
Dip your brush in non-diluted bleach and start tracing the chalk lines of your design using small steady strokes. The fabric will quickly soak up the bleach, but after a while you will see your design appear in bright color.
Kada završite, sačeajte bar 20 minuta da izbeljivač deluje, i tada ćete videti boju koju je izbeljivač izvukao. Zavisno od sastava i boje majice, boja će biti u intervalu od tamno crvene do bele. Ako je boja previše tamna, ili vam se ne sviđa nijansa, možete preći ceo crtež izbeljivačem još maksimalno tri puta da se tkanina ne bi previše oštetila. Kada budete zadovoljni dizajnom, ostavite majicu da se potpuno osuši, po mogućstvu na Suncu.
Depending on the cotton content of your top, the color will range from red to white. If you are not pleased with how it looks, you can trace your design couple more time(max three) with bleach until you reach desired color. Once you are happy with how it looks, let the top dry completely (it would be best to let it sit in the Sun for a while).
Kada se izbeljivač potpuno osuši. isperite majicu obilno hladnom vodom, zatim je ručno operite i ostavite da se osuši. Nakon toga, majica je bezbedna za nošenje i može se mašinski prati sa odgovarajućim vešom. 
Nadam se da Vam se dopada tutorijal!

Once bleach has completely dried, rinse with lots of cold water, hand wash your top and hang to dry. After that, your top is safe and ready to wear and wash with like colors.
Hope you like it!

Inspiration: Quotes on shit


"We all use so much shit. We collect shit, buy shit, steal shit, trade shit and then throw shit away. So what happens with all this old shit? Is there a life after it leaves our hands? Shit winds up in our garbage, on our streets, in our landfills, and in our junk shop. We feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit so we're rescuing these objects and breathing new life into them by giving them a voice with words. We want to turn old shit into new shit, and give them a second chance to be loved and help find this shit a new home."

DIY constellation hair piece / Uradi sama: Ukras za kosu sa zvezdicama


Osnovni materijal za ovakav ukras je dekor guma prekrivena šljokicama koju imate u ogromnom broju knjižara, naročito sad u vreme praznika. Ukoliko je ne možete naći, lako ćete je napraviti od obične dekor gume ili filca,lepka i šljokica, a možete i direktno da pravite zvezdce, kao što sam ja radila u ovom tutorijalu (klik).
Basic material for this kind of craft is glittery craft foam, which can be found anywhere this time of  the year. If you are having a hard time finding some, you can make your own using regular craft foam (or even felt), glue and glitter. Other option is to directly make stars, like I did in tutorial shown on this link.


Na poleđini dekor gume nacrtajte jednu veliku i nekoliko malih zvezdica i isecite ih makazama.
Draw one big and few smaller stars on the back of craft foam and cut them out.



Uzmite malo parče zlatno obojene  žice, nešto čime možete seći žicu (ako nemate klješta sečice, stara grickalica će odlično poslužiti) i super lepak.
Next, you will need a piece of gold colored wire, wire cutter (or old nail clipper) and superglue.


 Isečite žicu na kraće delove i uz pomoć super lepka povežite zvezde koje ste isekli tako što ćete naneti malu količinu lepka na vrh žice i "ubosti" je u dekor gumu.
Cut wires in smaller pieces and use superglue to connect stars you made.


This is how I chose to connect mine.


Na kraju samo superlepkom zalepite ukosnicu na poleđinu najveće zvezde i sačekajte oko sat vremena da se osuši. Ukras je nakon toga spreman za nošenje.
Glue bobby pin to the back of the biggest star and wait for an hour to dry, and your new constellation hair piece is ready!




Hope you like it!

DIY skeleton key brooch



Jedan jednostavan, a efektan, za zagrevanje.
Materijal/ Supplies:
Jedan starinski ključ / An old skeleton key (I bought mine at the flea market)
Parčence filca/ Tiny piece of felt
Super lepak/ Super glue
Kopča za broš/ Pin clasp


Isecite tanko parče filcai zalepite ga za kopču. / Cut a small piece of felt and glue it on the pin clasp.





Sačekajte da se dobro osuši i onda zalepite filc sa kopčom za ključ./ Wait for it to dry, and then glue it on the skeleton key.



 Kako je u pitanju metal, biće potrebno malo više vremena da se lepak osuši, pa bi trebalo da sačekate oko sat-dva pre nego što možete da nosite broš./ Since one surface is metal, it will take about hour or two for glue to dry completely, and after that your new pin is ready to wear.
Hope you like it :)
