Give credit where credit is due


tutorial-book-folding
Recently, I have been regularly asked about the computer tools I use for book folding or cut and fold.
Here is (very quickly!) the story:

– Isaac Salazar is an artist who used books to transform them into art sculpture.

– In February 2012 I was the very first one to conceptualize a technique using the Photoshop software. Tutorial I shared for free on this website. I have been looted throughout the world, without credit to my post.

The website has a new look


The website has a new look
My tendinitis still forced me to be craft inactive, it gives me time to relook my website.
I became a left-handed computer mouse pro!

Simple design, less flashy, I surprised myself to become wiser ;-)

Tell me what you think about this new style…

How to draw an ellipse


How to draw an ellipse (step 01)
I did not resigned, but since five months a nasty (and persistant) right thumb tendinitis prevents me to make any manual activity (and quite anything else as I’m right handed …).

Few days ago I completed a project, but since then I am again in a phase of forced inactivity :cry:

Anyway, for this project I needed an ellipse!

Storage drawer for coffee capsules


diy-capsules-drawer-01
We bought a Nespresso coffee maker. Compared to our old filter machise, the coffee taste is much better. But capsules storage quickly becomes a hell!

Existing storages are attractive but not really practical : either you opt for a box (too bad, aroma you want is under all other) either you opt for a rack that takes a lot of space (and I do not want to exhibit my capsules).

A drawer which has my maker size, that is the solution!

Business cards holder


porte-cartes-visite-01 porte-cartes-visite-06
Having nice business cards is easy, but find them intact through the handbag mess is a challenge.

You know me, whenever I can I recycle : using my son’s 20th years cake box!
It’s an enough strong cardboard and my baker had the good idea to choose a nice textured one.

Trencadís class in Barcelona


Trencadis
The trencadís invented by Antoni Gaudí, is based on tile fragments.

During our holiday in Barcelona, I took a 2 hours class provided by the artist Livia Garreta.
It’s not so easy to arrange the pieces to fill a form. The time went so fast that I didn’t try to make a design … but I succeed in inserting the heart of my website!

Ideas notebook


cahier-idees-01
Before creating, I like scribble to know where I’m going
(after I often take a different direction than what I had set out…).

I prefer to buy a simple spiral notebook and customize it in an ideas notebook.
“Many ideas in the head”
