Determined to make stuff with all the supplies I keep finding in my boxes, I ended up have a 'little bit of everything' day of crafting.
Decorated a bottle with glass blobbies and some fibre.
This was a small brown bottle that had a black plastic lid. It wasn't going to be any good for glass painting so I covered it with fibre and put paper and crystals on the lid, then added a turtle charm.
While waiting for glue to dry, I found the kirigami paper and instructions and gave it another shot.
After about a half dozen tries over the past week, I finally made a bead and jumpring bracelet I saw on Pinterest.
The craft that took the longest was a Sharpie tie dye technique I was dying to try. I found this plain canvas bag with my stuff and I also unearthed all the coloured Sharpies I bought back in WA.
I have way more colours than this...but I was gonna start with these and see how it went.
The direction I followed online said to make a design in about the size of a quarter. I used a whole bunch of colours.
Next you drip rubbing alcohol on the ink and wait for it to spread. I didn't have a dropper so I used a straw and it was hard to control the alcohol. Then one whole side totally refused to spread, not even when I tried to add more ink and alcohol.
Had the best luck with these colours.
The reason I started with this canvas bag instead of a tshirt, is that it was actually a Sharpie brand bag that probably was a free gift in the box with all the coloured markers.
The finished bag, which I tumbled dry in the dryer to set the ink.
