Plan With Me! | April 2017 | Bullet Journal Setup Ideas | Monthly, Weekly Spread | How To Organize

Hey guys! I finally started a Bullet Journal! I wanted to share some bullet journal ideas while you plan with me my monthly spread, weekly spread & my other goals & plans for April using my Leuchtturm1917 bullet journal! I've binge watched so many videos about bullet journal ideas for beginners to learn how to bullet journal! Since I'm super new to this, I decided to keep the bullet journal set up very simple & minimalistic!

Bullet Journaling was always something I had in mind, but I was always too afraid I would use it as another way to procrastinate because I would procrastinate while making the bullet journal pretty instead of being productive! But after seeing so many bullet journal flip throughs I discovered that it doesn't have to be super fancy! It can also be super simple and minimalistic! I hope you like my bullet journal setup and want to see more bullet journal ideas in the future!

When you are home alone and feel bored, don't know what to do when bored, all these ideas and techniques are great DIY projects that are not only fun, creative, but also oddly satisfying! Some of them you can also do when you are bored at school. ;)

#1 Water Droplets Watercolor Painting
For this project you are going to need an aqua brush, watercolor paper and watercolors! You can create different watercolor designs, techniques and patterns using this fun, relaxing and easy watercolor technique!

#2 Mandala Drawing
In this Mandala drawing tutorial I will show you step by step how to draw a Mandala! Drawing a Mandala is oddly satisfying and super relaxing as well! I was realy mesmerized and fascinated how relaxing it is to draw a mandala!

#3 Spirograph Art
Creating art with a spirograph is so fun and satisfying! You can really play around with it and create different designs! While focusing on every design and the movement of the Spirograph, you really feel more and more relaxed! I also felt super excited and fascinated by this project because I wanted to see what other interesting designs I can achieve!

#4 Pen Hack
For the last oddly satisfying project you will need a dry erase pen that usually come with a white board, a little bit of water and a smooth surface. I used a plate because it worked best for me! Draw any doodle you like, just be sure the lines are connected! Carefully add water ontop and the ink will slowly detach from the surface and start floating! Now you can play around with it and have fun! I find this pen hack is so silly and so fun!

All these ideas are great for your friends and family. You can personalise and make every box unique to make a great DIY gift for your boyfriend, girlfriend, mother father and everyone else you know! These cute gift wrapping ideas are perfect for oddly shaped gifts. Depending on the size of your gift, you can either use a large or a small piece of paper and ornament. I hope these DIY creative gift wrapping ideas are helpful to you!

You can get the supplies at any craft store or online (Amazon / Ebay)!

#1 DIY Origami Candy Box
The origami candy box instructions and techniques can be different. I hope through this step by step video you can learn how to make your own candy box! I tried my best to show and explain every step, but if you still have any questions, feel free to ask!

#2 DIY Strawberry Box
To make the strawberry box use a heart shaped plastic ornament in any size of your choice! Paint the seeds using yellow acrylic paint on the inside of the plastic, let it dry and then apply a generous amount of red acrylic paint so the inside won't look through later! Once everything is dry, place the gift inside and close the box. For the leave and the step I used green paper and a pipe cleaner! You can get everything at any craft store or online!

#3 DIY Emoji Box
To make the emoji box is very simple. Take a round plastic ornament in any size you want. The bigger it is, the bigger the gift can be/the more you can put inside! Draw any emoji face inside the ornament (mirrored), color anything you need with acrylic paint and then cover the rest with yellow acrylic paint!

#4 DIY Animal Gift Wrap
For the cute cat I'm using white paper and wrap the package as I would normally pack a gift! But this time be sure to make the fold/flaps on the side that is wider. This way we can draw the face on the smaller side! Attach ears that you can make out of paper, draw a face and attach a tail! Here I used a pipe cleaner as well that I attached at the end!

Art Challenge: Painting With Coffee ☕ | Painting The Moon | How To Paint The Moon With Coffee


Hey guys! Time for another art challenge idea and painting video with a twist!



A fun and creative DIY project to do when you are bored at home! For this fun art project we are going to paint with coffee and paint the moon! Painting with coffee to create coffee art is not that easy as I thought! But if you don't have watercolors, using coffee is a great alternative if you don't know what to use instead of watercolors!

I've tried drawing with makeup, painting with nail polish and painting with sugar! This time we are going to paint with coffee!
Coffee painting or coffee drawing to create coffee art is a fun alternative if you don't know what to use instead of watercolors! And it's a fun thing to do when you don't know what to do when you are bored at home! In this painting with coffee tutorial I'm going to show you how to paint the moon by showing you my process and by walking you through my process! I tried to use the coffee as if I would use watercolors, but it was a bit challenging as the coffee didn't behave exactly like watercolors. But it's a great alternative and it was still super fun!
I used freshly ground coffee without using instant coffee! Kinda makes it like a ground coffee DIY! haha

Fun & Creative Things To Do When You Are Bored At Home | What To Do When Bored!

Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you fun & creative things you can do when you feel bored at home!


You can try these fun and creative DIY projects when you are bored and don't know what to do! In this tutorial I will show you not only how to doodle and how to create doodling art, how to create a dot painting, but I will also share an abstract art technique and show you how to create unique and abstract art using a plastic bag and acrylic paint. Lastly I will show you how to create hand lettering quote art using watercolors in this tutorial! All these things you can do when you are bored are fun DIY projects for kids and the whole family, but also a great way to create art while relaxing!

When you are home alone and feel bored, don't know what to do when bored, all these ideas and techniques are great DIY projects that are not only fun but also creative!

#1 Doodling Art
There are a lot of doodle art tutorials for beginners on YouTube, but even when you have an idea and feel inspired to doodle, sometimes you still don't know what to doodle! This is a great opportunity to do art just for the process! Create random lines, make them overlap each other and then start somewhere! Add lines, circles, squares, anything that comes to your mind!

#2 Hand Lettering / Quote Art
Another fun thing is to learn hand lettering and create inspirational quote art! There are quote art tutorials and they are a great way to start! Find inspiration online and decide what font you would like to use! For my tutorial I used an aqua brush because you can just press the brush to release the water! But you can use normal brushes as well!

Similar to my Aqua Brush: http://amzn.to/2js8bDq *

#3 Unique & Abstract Art Techniques
Creating abstract art is another fun thing to do when you are bored! For this abstract art technique you will need a plastic bag, something firm to wrap it ar (cutting board), acrylic paint and paper! Don't use too much paint or it can get very messy! This is one of many abstract art painting ideas, but since you never know how the painting will turn out, it makes the result surprising and even better!

#4 Dot painting on Canvas / Dot Art Painting
From random dots to DOT ART, creating a dot painting is another fun activity! It's a little bit similar to Pointillism but here it is inspired by different artists and the Aboriginal art!
I came across this type of art through Instagram and working with kids. It's very therapeutic and relaxing. Aboriginal art has a deeper meaning that you can look into as well! You can tell stories through this type of art or just create beautiful artwork while relaxing!

Check out these talented artists on IG!

DIY: Bookmarks & Watercolor Techniques for Beginners Part 2 | Watercolor DIY | How To Make Bookmarks

Hey guys! I have another video about DIY Bookmarks & Watercolor DIY Techniques for Beginners Part 2! Perfect for book lovers & for Back to School! I will show you how to make Watercolor Bookmarks using different Watercolor Painting Techniques & Watercolor Hacks to keep this Watercolor Tutorial easy!




In this DIY Bookmark video I will show you another 6 DIY watercolor bookmark design ideas using different watercolor techniques & watercolor hacks such as different stencils, masking fluid alternatives, acrylic paint, glazing, lifting, wax resist / crayons, bubble wrap & more to create beautiful abstract & unique DIY watercolor paintings as bookmarks!

Want to see more of my videos? Subscribe to my channel on YouTube and don’t miss out on any new uploads!

#1 Lifting technique
For the first watercolor technique you will need watercolors, tissue paper and a coin or a pen! You can basically use any object with a flat surface. Load up your wet brush with paint and apply it over the wet area. This technique is called wet on wet or wet in wet. It is great to great dreamy and loose transitions between colours. Wrap the tissue paper around your coin so the tissue is flat and then press it down and lift it. And you should get a paint free area!

#2 Glazing
The next watercolor technique is great to adjust the tone and colours of your watercolor painting. Apply a thin layer of paint over the dry layer of watercolor paint. Here I used yellow colored paint to add warmth to the painting!

#3 Stencils
Stencils are another great way to create unique watercolor paintings. You can use the lifting technique and a stencil or acrylic paint that you dab over the stencil by using a sponge brush or a brush. If you use the lifting technique, take a clean wet brush and make several brush strokes over the area where you want to lift the watercolor. Wipe the watercolor from your brush onto a dampened tissue paper and repeat the step. You can also dab on the tissue and lift some of the paint to remove and lift more paint, rinse off your brush again and repeat the steps. This technique is great for removing any watercolor mistakes, making the colour lighter or for interesting designs!

#4 Bubble wrap
For the next technique you will need bubble wrap! Apply some paint in the colours of your choice using a wet brush and then place the bubble wrap on top. Carefully press it down and let it completely dry. When it's completely dry, you can peel it off and you get a unique pattern!

#5 Wax resistant
Using crayons for watercolor paintings is another great idea to create unique designs. It's another alternative to masking fluid! Draw a pattern or letters and then reveal the design by applying watercolor on top!

#6 Layering
The next technique is all about layering. Since watercolor is naturally rather transparent, you can play around with the opacity by layering different colours. Here I created different coloured circles by using bright colours that I mixed with lots of water to get a bright layer of paint!
