DRESS CODE: Tulip Tie Dye Watercolor Scarf

Tulip Tie Dye Watercolor Scarves via homework - carolynshomework (12)Friends, I have such a fun project to share with you today. As part of the Tulip Tie Dye Your Summer fashion team, I’m demonstrating Tulip Tie Dye but not in the traditional sense. When you think of tie dye, you think fun t-shirts with spirals of bright colors. I used Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye which is America’s favorite tie dye, to create fashionable scarves in a watercolor effect.

INKLING: Ephemera, Origami & Rice Paper {fusion}

Ephemera Cards via homework | carolynshomework.comIf you’re a scrapbooker or paper crafter, you probably know what ephemera is. They’re bits of paper typically used in paper crafting. The actual definition is: things that are important or useful for only a short time: items that were not meant to have lasting value:  paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles. I love these pretty little bits of book pages and other tidbits.
