Colour in Context Project 7! (I’m very tired and these are the only pictures I took before handing it in but yay!)



GDES 1B09 Design Comm Assignment in progress

Loved this class and this assignment. Do you have Michelle Astrug?

Yes I do 🙂


Doing this!  Painted bobby pins to match my nails. 

I’m all about fashion subtleties.  As in, the kind of style nobody notices until an awkward moment passes when we’ve both run out interesting things to say…


DIY Colorful Bobby Pins

Wanna add some color to your summer tresses? Well this d.i.y. couldn’t be easier! I’m talking seconds peeps. (It’s actually taking me longer to write this amazeballs post for you.) 

– bobby pins or hair clips of your choice (doesn’t matter if they’re old & crusted because they’re about to get a makeover!)
– nail polishes
– a piece of paper/cardstock/index card

1. Space your bobby pins out on the piece of paper. (Pictured) 
2. With your favorite nail polish in hand, lightly brush the top of bobby pin with polish until fully coated. (I only used 1 coat of polish, but would assume additional coats would only make the pins that much sweeter!) ***For Color-Blocked pins, see below! 
3. Let dry.

**How to Create Color-Blocked Bobby Pins:
My pins had 5 “ridges” on the surface so I simply noted where the top of the 3rd ridge was & made sure that marker was where 1 polished ended & the other began.

I’ve also noted all the different colors of ZOYA nail polishes I used for this project (pictured). Hope you find some cool colors you love just as much I did 😀 

Good luck my friends!


P.s. sorry for the major TYPO in my 1st pic guys :/ COLORFUL Bobby Pins…COLORFUL ;] 

Oooh, must try sometime, I was just thinking about acquiring some colourful bobby pins 🙂


I wish I had the time to do things like participate in ze’s missions and draw little comics, and edit photos and write amateur articles for tumblr. Make stamps and journal more and the rest of it. Things that just take little chunks of times and use creativity, and things that take more time like designing  tumblr theme and starting an etsy shop.

I recognize this wish and agree to put it mostly aside for the time being, because school is busy but worthwhile, and writing about stuff in the past can be as fun as the present, and I will always have more project ideas but that doesn’t mean I have to abandon the ones I have now. School is worth putting the time in to, and putting these projects aside for the time being, and I understand that and won’t punish myself for it.

And that doesn’t mean I can’t spend 5 minutes writing this, or doodling that, but my most precious projects may not get done, or very few may get done, and the things that do may just be because they flit through my mind at the right moment, and that’s okay for now.

Oh, and I like twitter so far…
