Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!!


Hello hello, today i decide to make a post about some hand-made stuff i done over the time.My imagination was increased after my entrance to the Tumblr world and i make up my mind that if i want something and i cannot find it for some reason(s) i will make it from scratch! Is more fun and yes sometimes is more cheap from actually buying the real deal. :) Enjoy ^^ 











1. Candle case 
Ok, you will need a white case, some little stones or anything looking like sand, perhaps some little shells to add for decor. The product i used was from a aromatic envelope i had in my closet. (My aromatic sand was cold (vanilla) so i found some yellow-orange candles with the same smell). 
Then a little candle (whatever color of course you want to use just to match with the stones or the sand!) and yes black spray (it's my favourite thing right now!!). 
If you don't have one you can always use an old black nail polish. 

1. Take the case and make some stripes so you can draw your black lines with the spray. 
2. Filled your case with the sad or the stones and then 
3. Put your candle and enjoy!!


I used black spray to color my new selves this summer and i have to say, it is a miracle for anything you want to paint! It's extremely easy to do and dries very fast. I had some shoe boxes to paint and a few frames!


2. Silhouette portraits
I had in my possession some frames with moon and sun sketches but i love changes so i decide to make some babies on my own. Silhouette portraits of a man and a woman for beginning. 
1. First dye the frames black with a spay.
2. Then draw the portraits on a piece of paper (it was the simplest thing i have ever done in my life). 
3. Wait for the painted frames to dry and put the sketches on them. 
I am thinking of adding some Victorian keys in the portraits but really, i have so much in mind, and if i do all that, they will probably end up looking like two simple black frames! xD


 I found and bought some simple and way cheap frames, to put some of my other sketches but i have to find some room first!! Yeah that is always a problem!!

3. Bats
Halloween is coming and Halloween without bats, horror movies, spooky stories, pumpkins, (ok i will never find a pumpkin but whatever i will grow one xD) and candies is not Halloween! 
Ohhh who i'm kidding this is like a normal day for me! Yet my country has no idea so, Halloween decorations are extremely rare to find! 
Inside my mind: "So make some and just cry over the computer for other you cannot make!!!"

  2. These are some great craft ideas! I especially like those bats! I have been crying over the bat wall decals that people from America have been sticking all over their homes! I think they got them from Target or Wallmart but we don't have either of those in the UK.. it sucks! I have been planning on creating some silhouettes of my own as the real vintage ones go for way more on eBay than I'm willing to spend! I have two pretty oval frames which I plan on putting a silhouette of Frankenstein's monster and the Bride of Frankenstein silhouettes in! There is a book I have on pre-order which is being released soon called 'Silhouettes from Popular Culture' by artist Olly Moss, I think you will like too, you can find it on Amazon!

    By the way, I don't know if you received my email the other day but you have won my 400 follower giveaway! If you can email me your home address to bellamorte(at)hotmail(dot)co(dot)uk then I'll get the parcel out to you! ~♥~

  4. Hello my friend :) First - thank you for such lovely comments! I do feel much better now when I got back to my old interests, my dark side is much better than thw other side ;) That's why my old blog will not be active anymore, but I'm happy with my new blog much more than with the old one :)
    You are very talented! I love the idea of portraits, it's really nice, I must try it, as like you I have lot of things totally handmade or painted, I also love black photo frames, I framed a lot of pictures lately, and they are all in black frames and pictures were printed in black and white, the effect it really nice, but I can't show it as I don't want to publish pictures of my family on my blog.
