This time, the tutorial turned out to be one for two different cases. Because I finished the first one, used it a day and then figured, it wasn't me enough. So I made a few changes, et voilá!
What I love about this DIY is, that the amount of stuff you need is minimal! For the finished version I needed:
- nail polish
- an old earring
If you want to attempt the one with the circle option you'll have to add:
- plain paper
- washi tape
- transparent foil
What was different this time is, that I used mat nail polish. I had grey only in mat and was a bit unsure of the final product but it turned out better than all the designs I did before. If I had more mat colours I'd go mat from now on.
What to do (Blogspot just deleted my whole post here...so I had to tip it again...just in case it's not as upbeat anymore ;P):
It's really quite easy. I normally start by collecting some ideas online. Cushion patterns, wall paper, sketches...everything works.
For the circles, I painted some simple lines in mat grey on the case. While that dried, I drew circles on some paper and added colour or washi tape. If you have a large whole puncher, even better!
Then I went online again in search of some cute quotes.
To apply the circle, I cut out a slightly larger circle of transparent foil. It comes of easily so you could also have like a one-week-one-quote kind of thing!
The second design is simply add a few more dots and lines to the grey main lines. For the pendant, I removed one feather and two strings from an old earring of mine and attached them with craft wire. Easy peasy.
If you lacking ideas, have a look over at the DIY page, it could be that I get too excited about mobile cases from time to time...;)
