Children love having their faces painted! Whether it’s at a carnival, fair, or community fun day or at home just for the fun of it, it’s a definite favorite. There are many different things you can do with face painting. There are unlimited ideas when it comes to what types of designs you can paint. Here are a few tips when it comes to face painting designs, and a few things to remember.

There is no need to run out and purchase face painting designs with the amount of information available to you today on the internet. You can find free printable face painting pictures on some really great sites. From simple designs such as flowers and cherries, to elaborate and beautiful fairy, princess and superhero designs, children love each design.

When using paints and other decorative things on the face, you want to make sure that it’s all safe. You don’t want to use regular acrylic paints like some do, because they can actually irritate a child’s sensitive skin. Instead, go for a paint that is made specifically to go on the skin. This will keep the child a happy camper.

When using glitter to add to the effect of face paints, make sure you never use aluminum glitter. This can be extremely unsafe for the childÂ’s skin and eyes, and it’s rather easy for a child to rub some of the aluminum glitter into his or her eye. Avoid this by using glitters that are safe for the skin, such as body glitter. There are many free printable face painting pictures that you can add glitter to and it will make the design stand out and be much prettier. The same thing goes for stick on jewels. Make sure that there is nothing in the glue or jewel that could irritant the skin.

A great idea is to learn how to face paint for your child’s birthday party. Professionals will charge up to $150 an hour to do this for you. You truly can save a ton of money by doing it yourself. If you don’t know what to paint look for free printable face painting pictures. Face painting really makes a birthday party special, and the designs that you paint will be priceless to the child. The children will really love having the designs on their faces.

Face painting is great fun for the child being painted and the one doing the painting. It can be an inexpensive, artistic and fun way to celebrate sports teams, school spirit, birthdays, and even holidays!

Face painting can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a lot of hard work. And finding face painting ideas that havenÂ’t already been done many times before is very difficult. So unless you can take time out of your busy schedule to register for a face painting class (if there is even one available in your area) you should visit http://www.FacePaintingUniversity.com today, to discover a treasure trove of face painting ideas!

Well what garments do you look for in the shops when it’s raining and the summer seems like it’s gone? Of course some of us still have our summer hols to look forward to, but for those staring out of the window on another wet Saturday wondering whether to buy an umbrella or risk a t-shirt it’s baffling.

Personally I always think that August is Summer whatever the weather, and it’s t-shirts and shorts for me. Right now there is an array of t-shirts and singlet types to choose from, placement prints, you know the prints that are quite big and are on the front and sometimes on the back are in abundance right now. They are in really sheer soft polyester’s and some in poly cotton. These really are easycare and easy to wear garments and worn over a long sleeve tee or untucked over jeans they look great. There are a range of prints in these tee’s right now, from butterflies and love hearts to some really grungy icon and tie dye prints. The All Saints look has really taken off now, and not just for women, men also have a choice of some wonderful cotton and poly cotton granddad shirts, in plains and prints.

With Christmas on the way, yes I know it’s only August, but before you know it Regent Street will have the lights up again. Fashion wise there will be some fantastic party garments this time around. It seems to me that the major stores are putting in a serious Christmas effort this year. Glitter will be in abundance, frills with glitter, sheers with glitter and jersey glitters in all fabrics and colours. Bronze and copper and mother of pearl will be particularly in abundance and I really like this idea, I personally am a bit tired of the same old gold and silver every year. Now I am not saying that gold and silver are done and dusted, it’s just nice to see a new slant on colours for this year.

Now I work on a lot of prints and recently I have been working on some really interesting tapestry designs. Some of these look particularly good on ponteroma, the furnishing look on a fabric like this really works. Printed sequins is another winner for this year. Sequins will also be in abundance this year and the printed versions are really quite interesting. How are these produced I hear you ask, well I’m not saying, suffice to say they don’t melt during the printing stage ïŠ

So back to the beginning, yes it’s raining but let’s go for some more summer stuff, woolly jumpers and melton coats are months away in reality, and with global warming you might not need either until well into October, well here’s hoping anyway.

So never mind the rain and the puddles, get down to the high street and look for some wonderful printed tops, oh, and don’t forget to haggle, we Brit’s can do it, honestly we can.

What sort of Weapon can I make from a pouch of glitter, a purple balloon and a love heart candle?

Rub wax on the balloon. Place next to door. Put pouch of glitter above door. Wait for person to walk to door. Person trips over waxed balloon, activating a sensor that causes glitter to fall on top of person. Person looks like a string of tinsel.

There is nothing quite as romantic as a lace wedding gown. Lace is so feminine and beautiful that it makes any bridal gown even lovelier. Used to trim a veil, lace turns something simple into something spectacular. There are a variety of types of lace, each of which is wonderful in its’ own way.

Some of the finest laces for wedding gowns include Alençon, Chantilly, and Venise. The exquisite workmanship of Belgian lace is also treasured, especially for veils. Needle and bobbin laces are usually made of cotton or rayon, and machine made laces are generally made of synthetic fibers. Lace first became widely used in 16th Century Europe, and it remains just as popular today.

Chantilly and Alençon are French laces which are most frequently designed with a floral motif. Chantilly lace is soft and supple; Alençon lace has a heavier cord re-embroidered over the floral base to give it a substantial feel. Venise is a more three-dimensional style of lace from Italy, which is also frequently seen with floral patterns. Venise lace was especially popular in the 1960s, and on a personal note, it is what I chose for my custom wedding gown (I chose the most beautiful three dimensional roses appliqués, which were handstitched onto silk shantung).

Lace can be used in many ways from traditional to modern, and everywhere in between. A look that is currently in style is to use a continuous piece of lace as fabric (known as “all-over lace”) for a look that is textural and surprisingly subtle. When done with an Alençon lace, the result is a wedding gown that is both gorgeous and forgiving (the weight of the lace helps to hide any lumps or bumps!). Alençon is most commonly seen over a stiffer under-fabric, but I have also seen it done over silk charmeuse with the result being a gown that is substantial but fluid at the same time – incredible!

Another way that lace is often employed is as an appliqué. This technique can be done with a heavy hand or a very sparing one. Venise lace is most commonly used as an appliqué because of its’ stiffness when used as a whole piece. The lace motifs can either be stitched onto a solid background, or over a net for a sheer look (as in a sleeve or a veil).

Appliquéd lace is often embellished with handbeading. This is great, because you can use the beadwork as inspiration for handmade wedding jewelry to coordinate. For instance, if your bridal gown has Swarovski crystal accents, then have your jeweler create unique handmade wedding jewelry using the same crystals. Pearl beading is always classic, and of course, pearl jewelry to coordinate would look perfectly polished.

Lace doesn’t have to be traditional, by the way. One of the most stunning wedding gowns that I ever saw was a slender sheath created from all-over Chantilly lace, heavily beaded with Swarovski crystals. The lightweight lace paired with the heavy crystals created a sensuous curve-hugging effect that was definitely not your grandmother’s lace bridal gown. The variety of laces, and the unique ways in which designers use them means that there is a lace wedding gown perfect for almost every bride.
