Glass Art!

Glass artists use a variety of techniques to form and mold the glass into  breathtaking  shapes to create these glass art. Some of them are: glass blowing (blowing air in by using a blowpipe and then to shape it with different tools), hot sculpting (shaped with tools to form a sculpture) and cold working (working on glass in their “frozen state”)..etc.

3D Street Art!

url-3

Your standing a few distance away from a cliff. Is it real? In the middle of the street? That’s when you realize after taking a tentative step towards the drop of the cliff, clenching your eyes and find yourself standing (as if floating) in the open gap between the cliffs. That’s 3D street art. It looks realistic but it’s actually a painting.

It looks really amazing and it uses optical/ visual illusions to make the art seem real. I haven’t actually seen one myself ( in real life), but these are some of my favourites:)

Altered Matchbox

This is a very creative and crafty art that you can make by yourself easily. It’s also very fun to make because you can do all sorts of designs to it. The main object you need is a matchbox. It can be any kind of matchbox because you’d probably cover it up with paint and such.

Before making it, you might want to consider the theme. It could be you, music, colours, Alice in Wonderland…etc!  From the themes you might also think about the different types of materials you might want to use like acrylic paint, buttons, ribbon, wood (like sticks to give it an organic feeling?) and more to highlight the theme.

Here are some examples of altered matchboxes with different styles/ idea:

Creative!  (and maybe vintage?)

PS: When you make these you should let your imagination run wild! If you want to look for more examples, you should see the altered matchbox images in pinterest because there are so many beautiful examples.
