I wanted to do an inexpensive DIY project today, and so I decided to decorate a mug. I have seen different ways to decorate ceramic mugs, and one idea I really liked showed a bunch of dots outlining a letter (like this). Instead of using an initial, I wanted to do something cool like an outline of a dinosaur. A few Google searches later, I stumbled upon the perfect silhouette of a tyrannosaurus rex (I found it here).

Craft from the Past: Bargain Hunting DIY Deer Wall Decor

Oozing with Creativity

Lately I have been in the mood to paint, so I decided to experiment with acrylic paints. I wasn’t sure what I should paint, so I took my curiosity to Pinterest for some inspiration. I stumbled upon this pin that showed a cool way to do an abstract painting by simply placing dabs of acrylic paint on a paper or canvas, and then blending in the different colors. I thought this project would be quick and easy, so I decided to try out this idea with my own added touch to it.
