If you’re like me, you want to have your cell phone protected at all costs, but it needs to look pretty. I had sacrificed beauty over functionality, until I realized I could turn my boring-but-safe black case into a 30-minute DIY project… and have a little fun.
– metallic spray paint
– exacto knife
– a piece of heavy paper to cut
– metallic markers *optional
You can draw the shape or phrase for the design, which will function as a negative. I chose a heart, and used my exacto knife to cut out the letters. Once you have it, add as much tape as you can, so that it sticks well to the case.
Take it outside and play with the spray to get the desired effect. I suggest you first spray on a newspaper, to get the hang of it because spraying can be very messy and hard to control.
After letting it dry for at least 20 minutes under the sun, you can use metallic markers to enhance the design.
This technique will work out on plastic cases the best, and even on rubber ones. Just let the paint dry well before using it.
Every now and then my friends might send me some bizarre fashion items, as is the case with these chicken leg pumps, to challenge me to make some sense of it. I don’t think these shoes are that bad, so I created an outfit that goes with it.
What do you think?
Life has been a little hectic, and though I turned 29 last February 14, I hadn’t shared my looks. Celebrating a birthday over a whole weekend is quite fun ^.^friday am/pm :: Had a meeting early in the morning, and then pizza with a bunch of friends, so jeans and a chiffon blouse were the best options.saturday am :: for a brunch with the girls, I turned to my inner gypsy, with a sophisticated turn.
saturday pm :: after watching the sunset, spent the night with some friends over at the beach, which is great if you love kaftans.
sunday am :: since I was meeting a friend for lunch after church, the pastel lace dress + loafers combo seemed the most appropriate.
I have to confess my obsession with pale pink items. My favorite recent looks include a soft pastel pink item, and I’ve realized I’m unconsciously drawn towards that color.
