Block Printing


I hope you're having a good Friday!

This week was all about blah to TADA!
crafts inspired by this book:

If you haven't had the chance to check it out, you might want to go to the library or order yourself a copy. You'll enjoy the house tours and DIY projects that you can implement in your home to make it even more vibrant and comfortable.

Today, these are my pegs:

A block-printed duvet by Kate Pruitt; the block
print "stamp" is made from scrap cardboard

Stamped fabric curtains by Clara Klein; this
"stamp" is made of craft foam

Instead of rummaging for materials in
my craft bin, I've sought the vegetable
bin in fridge instead.

We'll use some lettuce!

We normally cut off the bottom and just throw it away.
But if you take a look, it has a pretty pattern.

Use this as the "stamp" and dip it in a shallow
puddle of paint.

Here it is on paper -- doesn't it look
like a blushing rose?

Use it as a recurring pattern on paper bags.

Now, a blah paper bag is a TADA!

A neat idea for the holidays!

Experiment with other fruits or vegetables,
as well as colors of paint.

Have a superb weekend!
