Make This | Gold Foil Art in PSE

Man! I have been a little behind on blogging this past week, huh? All I can say is it’s been a little bit crazy around here. But, have no fear, because we are back and I’m sharing a super simple way to make Gold Foil Art in Photoshop Elements over at Teal & Lime! 

Make This | Gold Foil Art in Photoshop Elements

Gold foil has been my jam lately but DIY versions can be a little tricky. I even tried this a DIY version with this cheeky faux gold foil art last Christmas but I wanted to create an even easier technique! So, head out to Teal & Lime for the full tutorial! Seriously, it’s crazy simple!

Don’t have Photoshop Elements? No worries! By hopping over, you can also score a free printable of this cute “Hooray!” print! I made it just for you. 😀

Happy Friday! Hope you’re all staying warm and bundly. We even got a little snow here in Dallas yesterday!

Today, I have super fun project for you. Ever since I saw this little heart pillow photo shoot over at Oh Joy! I have been craving (yes, craving) a simple white pillow with a giant red heart. But, since I’m a DIY’er to the core, buying it just didn’t seem like the best option. So, I tried out a whole new stenciling method and spilled all the details over at Teal & Lime for my February contributor post. Seriously, get ready to customize basically any fabric project with the use of Freezer Paper!

Today, I’m keeping the progress train rolling by sharing my minimalist-lite make-up routine.

Below is all the makeup I own! It gets me through my daily beauty routine as well as special occasions. the minimalist-lite make-up routine

It’s the chance to show appreciation and share some love with everyone! (You can go ahead and call me a hippie now.)

To kick off the countdown, I’m bringing some electric brightness into your day with some Neon Valentine’s Day Present inspiration!electric love | neon valentine's day presents
