DIY: How to Press Mineral Eyeshadows

I had all these lovely colours laying around and since I’m always on the run, loose eyeshadows rarely get used on my daily routine. For example, imagine the application of loose minerals in a bumpy car ride.
Last month I pressed most of my mineral eye-shadow samples and today I share this personal guide on how I did it.

Nail it! Crackle Scratch Art

Remember making these Scratch Rainbow drawings with crayons? I decided to paint my nails inspired by this technique today.
I’m also writing this post in Spanish because I felt like it.

*¿Recuerdan hacer estos dibujos con creyones de colores? Hoy decidí pintarme las uñas inspirándome en esta técnica.

The Current: Summer Breeze

It’s finally summer. Seriously, this must be the first summer I’ve been excited about. Yes, I hate the sweat and the heat that drags me to the grave (+95°F); but I love the breeze, the rain and the bright daylight experienced during the month of June. Melting ice creams during purple skies of sunset and the Caribbean insects coming out of no where to annoy and/or bite you. It’s nice somehow…

Customized Treasure Box

or the Gilded Vintage Tool Box

This is a vintage tool box from the 70’s.  After much brainstorming related to jewellery storage, I made this little project to refurbish and transform it into a jewellery box. Inspired by past eras and adding a touch of fun with purple glitter and that campy Halloween Bow.

This is a little project I did to customize these old sneakers, some acrylic paint and of course my favorite tool: nail polish! After painting them thoroughly and letting them dry I sprayed a little bit of clear sealant. After a pair of new shoelaces… behold my kitsch foot-candy.

Easter Weekend Activities

I seldom talk about my hair in this blog, eh?

First off, my internet connection has been a piece of shit. I’ve had an urge to socialize in the net these days because I’ve been alone all the weekend, stressing my mind with next week’s art show.
Second: I decided to use bloglovin’ and I’m lovin’ it! You can follow this blog using the tool if you want. I’ve found lots of cute Finnish girls that talk mostly about goth fashion so it makes me happy.
Easter Week, it’s supposed to be a break for my brain. No wonder I’ve been so lazy! Anyway, let me show you what I’ve been up to this week… apart from watching a bum from my window and killing tiny insects.

Old Notebook Covers

Highschool notebook cover

I’ve saved all of my notebook covers because of the collages I used to make for them. There are many, specially from the 90s. But I’ll just post these. They seem relevant. I though some of you would like to see my pre-tumblr days. Haha, because I found this act of cutting images and overlapping them to my liking very relaxing and inspirational.
I took this to another level and started to cover my door as well. So many images in the world, I had to take them with me, I had to put them in another perspective. Many dada artists obsessed with collage, for example the famous Hannah Höch pieces and even Man Ray’s. Eventually I found Decoupage and better yet, photo-montage. XD

These covers that I’m showing are are from 2001-2003.
