Are you ready for the 4th of July, have fun with these super easy creative ideas

4th of july collageSo with the 4th of July just around the corner I wanted to share some creative ideas to help make you holiday a bit more festive. Check out these fun ideas I found on the web.

Decorate your lawn for the 4th of July

Do you have a lush green lawn? Well you can amp up the party by adding stars and stripes to your grass how cool is that. Or maybe make your lawn into a great big twister lawn game the ideas are limitless.

Lawn Twister

Its super easy using water based construction marking paint its designed to spray upside down and it won’t kill your grass.  My local ACE carries this in lots of colors. Check out the concrete cottage to get more details on this easy to do project. Just spray and go. Clean up could not be any easier just wait for the grass to grow a bit and mow. LOVE IT!  You can even decorate for any theme parties using some of these fun stencils.

OK this should go without saying but for those of you who have ARTIFICIAL grass STOP don’t do it its permanent and is cut (mowed) out of growing grass but your won’t grow so there’s no way to remove it.  LOL

If you’re not the one throwing the 4th of July bash but want to take a small holiday token how about one of these fresh festive treats. Both are super easy to make and require no special tools just yummy berries or Oreos’ see how crafty recipes put the cookies together, candy melts, sprinkles, add a little food coloring to the melts or chocolate, how about some star nonpareils or colored sugars, etc. If you prefer real white chocolate to candy melts like I do here is a simple recipe to follow

multi-stamp syndee holt

Drum roll please….. Check it out Syndee Holt polymer clay artist, photographer and all around creative has created her own stamp designs.

I am luck enough to belong to the very same guild as Syndee, so I get lots of tips and tricks first hand. This year at Sandy Camp the guild retreat run by the San Diego Polymer Clay Guild Syndee introduced her new stamp designs. I knew they were coming as I already had them on order with the manufacture but had not gotten my shipment yet so it was fun to see what was on the way.

Syndee Holt is the ultimate giver and sharer of knowledge, and excitement.  This year at Sandy Camp it was no different. Syndee did several demos. She did one on photographing your work which was awesome, one demo using her favorite stamp the 2207J to make faux raku,

and last but not least one using her wonderful new stamps with both positive and negative images. She has even done a tutorial for the circle in circle pendant below. Its always fun seeing what Syndee is up too while soaking up some of her exciting energy!

A great big thanks Syndee!

Check out a few pieces that she has made using her very own stamp designs and as always with Syndee she has added these designs with her own dramatic surface techniques for stunning results.

In this one she used a transfer on the top section and the positive stamps imprint for the subtle bottom black layer.

Again this shows the wonderful results you can get by using the positive and negative of the very same design, and I say ya gotta love it. Way to go Syndee!
