DIY Golden feathers

Bloesem Living | DIY Golden Feathers

Hello Bloesem readers, this is Nancy from Nicenancy and I am excited to share a little craft tutorial with you today. 

I’ve got a thing for feathers at the moment. They are so tactile and beautiful I could look at them forever. And once you start painting them gold, you’ll want them even more. I used mine to decorate a package, but they are best friends with interior decorators as well. Put them under a glass and let the pretty things shine!

*Textile painting (I used Royal Talens Decorfin gold, nr 801)
*Water color for any other color
*A small brush
*A match (if you want stamp dots)

Well, this is probably the easiest DIY you’ve ever seen. Just grab those lovely feathers and start exploring your favorite patterns. I like dots and graphic lines. My 6 year old daughter Josi painted just the upper part blue (like a dip-dye) and I loved it. Just follow your heart and it will turn out beautiful!

DIY notebook madeby Pien

Createit

DIY_notebook_002

Hello there! I’m Pien Neve from Amsterdam and I am very proud to be the brand new guest blogger on Bloesem Living. Irene invited me to become the new DIY/craft contributor after seeing my DIY wall hooks.

For this first edition, I made a DIY notebook which is very easy to make ... just a few simple steps.

I got this idea when I caught my boyfriend using those horribly boring, cheap-looking and old fashioned school notebooks. Remember those? The kind you didn’t even want to use during college :).

About thime to give these notebooks a fresh look. I have to admit that my boyfriend is now going to work every day with a big pile of loose papers, while I am using his notebooks now. They have become to beautiful to bring to the office!

Read the steps and see the result by clicking here...

Step 01: Get rid of the staplers!

Be warned! Do not do this with your nails! I tried to do it 3 times because I was too lazy to look for another option. For instance, you can use tweezers to undo the staplers and your fingers won’t be bleeding.

Step 02: Sew the new cover

Fold your new cover (a beautiful color cardboard or a self-designed cover) and sew it with a needle and thread through the tiny holes of the staples. 

Step 03: Stamp

To finish it off, I stamped words on the new cover with alphabet stamps.

If you want to give it as a present, this Is a nice way to wrap it up!  

Thank you for reading my post, hope you enjoyed it! I am looking forward to sharing more with you in a couple of weeks! See you soon!  ~Pien

Guest Post: The Home Behind by Nord

Jennifer a merry mishap

I love seeing the homes of artist and designers, there is something so intriguing about seeing the space created by someone who works with visuals every day. This home is no exception and belongs to Hanne Berzant who mixes natural comforts with luxurious accents and truly exemplifies Nordic style.

Hope you enjoy! ~Jennifer Hagler

Guest Post: Blues + Greens

1

Hi everyone and greetings from Canada!  It's Jan from Poppytalk and I too, am so saddened by Irene's loss and of course was more than happy to do a post here while she is away. Big hugs Irene!

When wondering what I could write about for one of my favorite blogs, Bloesem, I ran into a splash of beautiful blues and greens via Marcus Hay's Blue/Green board over on Pinterest and was immediately drawn in.  I think what I am most inspired by is the hue (especially the chalkboard paint version) on the wall.  The effect for a wall mixed with blue fabrics and accessories really makes for an inviting space don't you think? It also works on furniture (like that chair in the photo above).

Here are a few green and blue images for inspiration, would you paint a wall a dark green like this? I just might. ~Jan
