On The Web : DIY Trompe L'oeil Fashion

Posted by

Have you tried any of the Trompe L'oeil projects from the September issue of Living yet?  These projects are so quick, you'll be able to whip something up in time for the first day of school (yikes, is summer over already??)  Try our tees, which would be equally sweet on kids or adults (I'm imagining a very sweet matching mother/daughter moment here.)

Bangles are so in right now, and just in case you need help making these, we have a how-to video.

You won't have any trouble justifying the purchase of your own "designer" totes-

These shoe clips can jazz up any pair of flats or heels-

Find the free printables to make this box and these earrings on our website-

These projects may look like an artistic feat, but in fact they couldn't be more simple thanks to the amazing illustrations courtesy of Nina Chakrabarti.  Many of the images were pulled straight from her fabulous coloring books (not just for children in my opinion!)  What a thrill to be able to offer our readers free printables from this incredible artist!

Be sure to check out the latest in Nina's series of fashion coloring books (out next week), My Wonderful World of Shoes!
