rachael rice on freepeople blog
sweeeet. got a guest artist spot over on the always-inspiring free people blog.
i love sharing how to make stuff.
here's a basic way to make a little dream catcher. riffing on the round object with danglies (found in every culture) i've been (finally) finding uses for my slightly embarrassing doily collection.
also featured here are diy doily crystal necklaces. my friend heather treasure cautions mindfulness about sourcing quartz and other crystals, and recommends arkansas crystal works.

dream eyes & god catchers
object with vintage trims and detail view
start here. i used a bangle. tie string, loop around.
keep looping around, and when you get to the beginning...
catch the loops and weave the string through each one. back to front or front to back, it doesn't matter as long as you are consistent
keep spiraling in until it gets too small to work with. add a bead and tie off. add feathers, etc. and you're done!

pastels or crayons, watercolors, collage elements
draw with pastel or crayon, add collage elements, and paint over.
cut out, draw designs with markers. i like sharpie paint pens.
