Finally here, hi! It's been two weeks, sorry for the hiatus.
Click 'Read More' for the galaxy leggings tutorial!
Oh yes, let me update you on my school: I'll be going to home school from now on and I'm pretty happy about that! I need a new camera though, my Canon really isn't the best camera I've got!


Should I do a tutorial on levitating too? Haha this one's not good, since this is the first time I tried this!
Shirt: Forever 21 ; Leggings: DIY galaxy leggings from Forever 21 ; Boots: Ross
Okay let's break down what we need for the galaxy leggings!
  • A sponge (either cut it out or buy three separate sponges for each color)
  • A toothbrush (for making the stars)
  • Acrylic paints (I bought gold, pink, violet and blue)
  • A small container for mixing the paints up
  • Newspapers
  • And of course, the leggings!
Don't mind the yellow, the color blind me thought I needed it!

Okay, so using the sponge, I used the three colors and started mixing them up and dabbing them. Violet really won't be seen so you can either mix it with pink, bright blue or white. Just keep mixing them up and also using the colors individually until you get something like this: 

After a few days and dried paint all over my hands, you'll be getting something like this:

I used the toothbrush and started flicking gold paint all over it.

And those are my galaxy leggings! It's not the best, but it's the first time I've done this and it's kind of okay!
What should I make next? I'm planning to make tie-dyed shorts or shirts! Give me links to your DIY blog posts

After all those promising posts it's finally here hahaha!
Have a great week guys!
