Marina & The Diamonds- Lies

With a little imagination, you can turn plain cheap boring things into something that people adore! plus re purposing goes a long way these days too!

The Idea for the deer silhouette came from a crafter online, however the idea to paint it onto a cork board was all mine baby! If you want to re create this piece all you will need is:

1. A plain cork board (i think they are all brown), you can get them from stationary stores of places like the warehouse, if you're american, maybe try Walmart (I think Walmart is this amazing land of everything!)

2. White no gloss paint

3.Black paint, or any color that you like, what's in at the moment is turquoise, which i'm using for my next project!

4. A stencil of an image, it honestly can be anything, i chose the deer because it matches the theme of my room, plus it wasn't too hard, you could do a rabbit or even a person like Marilyn Monroe?

Firstly, paint the cork board white all over, once its had it's second coat it should look pretty good, like a blank canvas

Secondly, Sketch the image you want onto the board (I used free hand with this one as i'm used to drawing, but if you aren't too confident definitely use a stencil you found on the net.

Lastly, Paint the image onto the board, try get the edges as sharp as possible as when its blotchy it can look kinda tacky, it's going to need two coats minimum as it needs to be BOLD!

And that sums it up!, I havent pinned anything to it yet it sits on my floor against a wall but even then it still has quite an effect.

So the other week I went for a lovely trip to the beach. I ordered a delicious grilled chicken Ceaser salad that had grilled bacon, and a poached egg on top, I have to admit that this was probably the best salad I ever had! Doesn't it look amazing!

Grr :)

YAY I'm Back!

Wowza it's been a lifetime! but i'm back baby! so much has happened in this massive period of my life, I dated a doctor in which I broke his kind heart, I made loads of new friends at my new job (Wagamama!!) where I make coffee and serve people who can never pronounce the names of the dishes. I've matured a great deal and at the same time have become more immature, I've fully discovered who I am in terms of my style and taste and I've accumulated many funny stories and also sad stories but the sad stories are funny, everythings funny to me, except death. Thats a serious topic. speaking of death I've grown my hair rather long, its shoulder length which means i can give new meaning to Willow Smith's "I whip ma hair back and forth" song. Oh yeah, I am that sexy bitch you always dreamt to become. haha ignore that i'm not THAT egotistical.

So here's a brief summary of events that outline why I have been slack on the blogging.
1. Laptop tried to kill me by blowing up. Don't under estimate a laptops murderous ambition.
2. I didn't and still haven't got the internet at my house, I'm using other peoples internet, dictionary definition of such a trait: Asshole who spends his money on food and not whats important. porn, just kidding although that's what the Internets for, right?
3. When I do get internet access, events follow accordingly. Facebook, Youtube, Craftgawker, Porn.
4. I actually do have a life in the real world, that involves incredible activities of going to work until 11pm and waking up at 8 the next day.
5. I'm just as lazy as someone who would rather use the drive through even though there is 9 cars in queue, and inside there is 1 customer in queue, but is still adamant the drive through is better.

Cool, so that all cleared and all of your time wasted, I shall now post random shit and begin building up my blog again, cheerio my friends!
