How to paint a wood photo backdrop with food coloring / Cum sa vopsiti cu colorant alimentar un fundal din lemn, pentru fotografiat

Long time no seen, hope you are all doing well these days and are staying cool somewhere on a beautiful sandy beach! :) I know that's what I would love to do for at least ... one month to fully recharge my batteries! :)

We had some crazy days here at Dreams Factory, juggling between making new DIY projects, writing articles for the blog and making lots of  blog design changes, managing our business and shops but also finding time to enjoy these beautiful summer days.
It is a little bit exhausting, I must confess and sometimes overwhelming, but I'm not really complaining. Being able to work from home, doing something that I love, having the control over my own precious time mean the world to me! Not to mention that I get to do all these with Mr Dreamy by my side - we are both truly blessed.

I try to find ways to relax in all this madness and the fact that I dropped my iPhone into a pitcher with water the other weeks kind of forced me to take an additional break from social media. It was only then, when my smartphone was broken when I have realized how much time I actually spent there, so I tried to enjoy the short ''no phone period of time'' as much as I could ... at least until my iPhone was up an running again :)    

Now let's get to the painting with food coloring part. This might sound a little crazy, but yes, you can actually paint wood with food coloring.
Why in the world would you want to do that, you ask?:) Let me tell you how I got to the point of using this method in the first place.

Home decor ideas: Painted French jars / Idei decor casa: Borcane frantuzesti pictate

Ever since I started this whole Dreams Factory beautiful madness, almost three years ago, I've been searching for the most unique things to paint and decorate.
Jars are one of those things and have been some of my favorites so far. You only need paint, candle wax, sandpaper  and some decals with your favorite French graphics and you can transform ordinary jars into charming and elegant Shabby Chic beauties.

10 Favorite chalkboard fonts & a FREE chalkboard background / 10 fonturi favorite, care imita scrisul cu creta pe tabla si un fundal in acelasi ton

I have a thing for fonts for quite a while now, so today I'm starting a new column here on the blog with some of my favorites, because for the last couple of years I have grown quite a lovely collection. The best part is that you can get really creative when using fonts, I'll show you different kind of fonts that you can mix and use to create beautiful printables, graphics and anything that you can think of.

Here are my 10 favorite chalkboard fonts, a great combination of handwritten and regular fonts, graphics and ornaments. I ''chalkboarded''  a beautiful vintage frame from The Graphics Fairy to  integrate it into the design and turned a black background I found online into an amazing lilac chalkboard background.

Crazy little called {Chalk Hand Lettering Shaded} THING {Return to Sender}
 EVERYBODY {Eraser} needs somebody to {CF Manifesto} Love {Lydia Puente}

Heart {Kr Heartalicious} Butterfly {Kr Butterflies} Ornament {Soft Ornaments Three}

Let's talk about the heart, the butterfly and the lovely ornament from the bottom of the page.
Did you know there are fonts with graphics, symbols, images, doodles or different ornaments instead of letters? For the lovely heart, for example, I pressed letter ''j'' on the keyboard, using the KR Heartalicious font mentioned earlier. Pretty cool, right?

I'm assuming you already know how to download and install a new font on your computer, but if you don't, maybe you'll find this article helpful.

I found the beautiful background online (not sure of the original source, but would love to give proper credit). It was black at first but and after playing a little bit in Photoshop, I transformed it into an amazing lilac chalkboard background. You can click on the picture below to download it for free and use it in as a background for creating chalkboard signs, tags, wedding invitations, printables and many more.

VERSIUNEA IN LIMBA ROMANA

Am facut o pasiune pentru fonturi de ceva vreme, asa ca azi inaugurez o noua rubrica aici, pe blog,
cu unele dintre preferatele mele, deorece in ultimii ani am reusit sa strang o colectie impresionanta.
Partea cea mai buna este ca putem deveni foarte creativi atunci cand vine vorba de fonturi, o sa va arat diferite tipuri de fonturi pe care le puteti combina pentru a crea printuri frumoase, grafice si orice va trece prin cap.

Iata 10 dintre fonturile mele favorite, care imita scrisul cu creta, pe tabla, o combinatie de diferite fonturi ''scrise de mana'' sau normale, grafice si ornamente. Am adaugat in design si o rama vintage de pe The Graphics Fairy, pe care am transformat-o intr-o mini tabla de scris cu creta, precum si un fundal de acelasi tip, care era initial negru si pe care l-am transformat intr-o culoare liliachie uimitoare.

 EVERYBODY {Eraser} needs somebody to {CF Manifesto} Love {Lydia Puente}

Inima {Kr Heartalicious} Fluturas {Kr Butterflies} Ornament {Soft Ornaments Three}

Sa vorbim putin despre inima, fluturas si ornamentul elegant (din josul paginii).
Stiati ca existe anumite categorii de fonturi, care in loc de litere, contin imagini, simboluri, semne grafice, inflorituri sau diferite ornamente? De exemplu, pentru a realiza inima am apasat litera ''j'' de pe tastatura, folosind fontul KR Heartalicious pe care l-am mentionat mai devreme. Super tare, nu?

Banuiesc ca stiti deja cum sa descarcati si sa instalati un nou font pe calculator, dar daca nu stiti sa o faceti, poate gasiti acest articol util.

Fundalul l-am gasit online (nu stiu exact sursa originala, dar as vrea sa o pot mentiona aici). Era negru la inceput, dar dupa ce m-am jucat putin cu el in Photoshop, l-am transformat intr-un fundal grozav, care imita tabla de scris cu creta. Puteti da click pe imaginea de mai jos pentru a-l descarca gratis, il puteti folosi pentru a realiza semne, etichete, invitatii pentru nunta si multe altele.

10 Favorite chalkboard fonts & a FREE chalkboard background  / 10 fonturi favorite, care imita scrisul cu creta pe tabla si un fundal in acelasi ton

Sper sa va placa si voua cele 10 fonturi preferate de mine, care imita scrisul pe tabla, si fundalul in acelasi ton. Daca le folositi pe undeva, puneti un link catre blogul Dreams Factory si lasati un comentariu mai jos, mi-ar placea sa va vad creatiile.
Nu uitati sa zambiti,

DIY: French Vases (Ikea hack) / Tutorial: Vaze frantuzesti (transformare Ikea)

I fell in love with Ikea ever since I first step in that magical place and have brought home with me some lovely items every time I went shopping there.
Things that I really needed to buy, of course! :) Mainly white stuff, of course! ;)
Like these Ikea enamel vases, that come in two different sizes and can be easily used to decorate your home, whether you decide to use them with fresh or dried flowers. They can also be used as pitchers in your kitchen or for holding utensils. Don't you just love things that can be used in so many different ways? I know I do, especially that I like to move and rearrange things around my home on a regular basis.

Strawberrylicious superfood smoothie with chia seeds / Super smoothie delicapsunicios, cu seminte de chia

What better way to refresh on a hot summer day than an energizing and healthy smoothie packed with fruits, almond milk and tiny miraculous chia seeds?
For me, this is pure perfection and I usually take a few minutes off when making and enjoying a smoothie, so this is also a great way to decompress. I am so lucky to be able to take these short breaks whenever I feel like it, working from home definitely has lots of advantages. :)

I like to keep things simple when making a smoothie so I only use a few ingredients: fresh or frozen fruits and almond or soy milk for a dairy free version (you can also use regular milk). And some amazing chia seeds (that I really really really love) to supercharge it with minerals, calcium and omega 3 - or any other superfoods, I'll give you a few ideas in a bit.

________________________

RO: E timpul pentru un nou proiect DIY, un minunat sevalet Shabby Chic din lemn, realizat de la zero, (inca) unul dintre proiectele mele favorite din toate timpurile. Am indragit proiectul asta inca de la inceput si sunt sigura ca o sa va placa si voua, pentru ca sevaletul poate fi integrat cu usurinta in casa voastra sau chiar la birou, sub forma unui stand decorativ, la nunta sau oriunde altundeva, posibilitatile sunt nelimitate.Am si o surpriza pentru voi, o imagine Shabby frantuzeasca, va spun mai multe detalii imediat. 
    
DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

Of course you can use it as an artist easel as well, what better time to put your canvas on, bring your brushes, paints and start using your imagination and play with different colors! :) The truth is, this is what I wanted to do when I saw the easel beautifully painted in white and distressed. And it fit perfectly my white home decor! Even though it was custom made for one of our clients, I loved it so much I almost kept it for myself. :) 
________________________

Bineinteles ca poate fi folosit si ca si sevalet pentru a picta, ce ocazie mai buna sa va scoateti panza de pictura, pensulele, vopselele si sa va puneti imaginatia la treaba, jucandu-va cu diferite culori! :) Adevarul e ca exact asta mi-a venit mie sa fac atunci cand am terminat sevaletul si dupa ce l-am pictat in alb si l-am invechit. Plus ca mi-a placut ca se potrivea atat de bine cu decorul meu alb, de acasa, incat, chiar daca a fost realizat pentru unul dintre clientii nostri, eram gata sa-l pastrez pentru mine! :) 

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

Mr Dreamy made the design, cut all the wood using a Makita Jigsaw* and assembled it and I did all the painting & distressing part. We wanted to make something easy to assemble so this wooden easel consists of a front framework and a flexible back leg.
I just love when we have a project like this that gives us the possibility to work together as a team. We kind of contradict at first because we each believe have better ideas, and of course we agree to disagree... But we somehow end up with the best solution covered in a compromise (and a kiss) and everything is great again in our dreamy factory :) 
________________________

Mr Dreamy a realizat designul, a taiat lemnul cu un fierastrau pendular Makita si l-a asamblat, apoi eu m-am ocupat de vopsit si de invechit. Am vrut ca sevaletul nostru sa fie unul care sa se asambleze relativ usor, asa ca am realizat un ansamblu/ cadru de lemn in fata si un picior flexibil in spate. 
Imi plac proiectele la care avem ocazia sa lucram impreuna, ca o echipa. Ne cam contrazicem la inceput, pentru ca fiecare sustine ca idee lui e mai buna, dar nu stiu cum facem ca pana la urma ajungem sa luam cea mai buna decizie, imbracata asa, intr-un fel de compromis (si un sarut) si totul revine la normal in fabricuta noastra de vis :)

How to make a wooden easel 

First cut and assemble all the front pieces (the two vertical legs and the horizontal pieces).
________________________

Cum sa realizati un sevalet din lemn

Taiati si asamblati toate bucatile din fata (cele doua picioare verticale si piesele orizontale).


Then use a stainless steel butt hinge to attach the flexible back leg to the top front horizontal pieces of wood. Easy peasy! :)  
________________________

Apoi folositi o balama din otel pentru a atasa piciorul flexibil din spate de bucatile de lemn orizontale de sus, din fata. Usor de tot, nu? :)

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

Here are the approximate sizes of the wood pieces (I forgot to exactly measure them). We didn't wanted the easel to occupy too much space, if you want to make it wider, you can play with the angles of the vertical front legs. If you do that, all the horizontal sizes will change, just make sure you measure first and cut second! :) You could put the vertical front legs on the floor, to see exactly how they look and measure the horizontal wood pieces depending on the opening of the angles you choose.   
________________________

Va las dimensiunile aproximative, bineinteles ca am uitat sa le masor cu exactitate. Pentru ca n-am vrut ca sevaletul sa ocupe prea mult spatiu, l-am facut mai ingust, dar daca voi vreti sa-l faceti mai lat, va puteti juca cu unghiurile piciorelor verticale din fata. Sa aveti grija insa, in acest caz, se vor modifica dimensiunile bucatilor de lemn orizontale, masurati mai intai si doar apoi taiati! :) Puteti aseza picioarele verticale (din fata) a sevaletului pe podea, sa vedeti exact cum arata si puteti masura apoi bucatile orizontale, in functie de deschiderea unghiurilor alese.

How to paint with two contrasting colors and add a Shabby Chic finish using candle wax 

To give it that chippy and romantic Shabby Chic look I used my one and only method, the one I always use for our decorations: painting the surface with two contrasting colors, rubbing a little bit of candle wax on the edges and then distressing.
First I applied a dark waterbased paint on all the edges, let it dry and then rubbed the edges with regular candle wax. This will help this first layer of paint to show through the final paint. It's a great method that you can use on all kind of surfaces, you can check my other DIY projects to see how I used this method on wood, glass, metal and even cardboard. 
________________________

Cum sa vopsiti cu doua culori contrastante si cum sa adaugati un aspect Shabby Chic cu ajutorul unei bucati de ceara de lumanare

Pentru un aspect Shabby Chic, invechit si romantic am folosit metoda pe care o folosesc pentru toate decoratiunile Dreams Factory: vopsesc suprafata in doua culori contrastante, aplic un pic de ceara pe margini si apoi invechesc.   
Prima data am aplicat pe toate marginile vopsea neagra, pe baza de apa, am lasat-o sa se usuce si apoi am aplicat ceara de lumanare. Ceara va ajuta stratul acesta de vopsea sa se vada de sub stratul final de vopsea. E o metoda interesanta, care poate fi folosita pe tot felul de suprafete, eu am mai folosit-o si la alte proiecte DIY si am vopsit in acest fel lemn, sticla, metal, chiar si carton.

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

My choice for the second color was the amazing milk paint* from General Finishes in a beautiful Snow White, the one that I've received from the lovely people from General Finishes a while ago for testing. It is pretty amazing, I love that is waterbased, has a great coverage and doesn't have a bad odor so you can even use it indoors. I've also used this professional paint on this French table (that I now use as a working desk/photo background) and on some other projects that I really hope to show you real soon.  
________________________

Pentru a doua culoare am ales vopsea profesionala ''milk paint'' de la General Finishes, culoarea alba (denumirea exacta Alba ca Zapada), pe care am primit-o de la cei de la General Finishes pentru testare, acum ceva vreme. Este foarte buna, imi place ca e pe baza de apa, are un grad de acoperire foarte bun si nu miroase aproape deloc, asa ca poate fi folosita in interior. Am mai folosit-o pentru a vopsi masa frantuzeasca (pe care o folosesc acum ca si masa de lucru/ background pentru poze), dar si pentru alte proiecte pe care sper sa vi le arat curand.

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

I applied two coats of white milk paint, let it dry and then used a 180 sandpaper grit and sanded the edges here and there, to give it a really nice Shabby Chic look. I instantly loved it! :)
________________________

Am aplicat doua straturi de vopsea alba, am lasat-o sa se usuce, apoi am folosit smirghel cu granulatie 180 si am smirgheluit pe ici colo, pentru a-i da un aspect Shabby Chic frumos. Mi-a placut la nebunie imediat! :)

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

You can choose black and white, like I did, or use your favorite two contrasting colors.
________________________

Puteti alege si voi culorile negru si alb, asa cum am ales eu, sau puteti folosi alte doua culori contrastante, dintre preferatele voastre.

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

To give it a real and complete artistic look, I decided to even make some kind of a canvas. So I improvised. I Shabbyfied a large frame from Ikea, using the same painting method and also painted the back board that came with the frame (the one that usually goes behind the photos). It was a match made in Heaven! :)
________________________

Ca sa aiba un aspect real si complet de sevalet de pictura, m-am gandit sa-i fac si un fel de ''panza''. Asa ca am improvizat. Am Shabbyfiat o rama mare de la Ikea, folosind aceeasi metoda, ba chiar am vopsit si placajul care se pune de obicei in spatele pozelor. S-au potrivit de minune! :)

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

Then I wanted to decorate that lovely painted board so it would look like a painting. And so I created a French collage with some of my favorites French images from The Graphics Fairy and an amazing Shabby Chic rose also from The Graphics Fairy. It looks like a Shabby French postcard from Paris and you can download it for free and use it on many beautiful projects.
________________________

Apoi m-am gandit sa decorez si placajul dragut pe care l-am vopsit si am vrut sa-l fac sa arate ca un tablou. Asa ca am realizat un colaj cu unele dintre imaginile frantuzesti preferate, de pe The Graphics Fairy, si un superb trandafir Shabby Chic, tot de acolo. Colajul arata ca o carte postala Shabby Chic frantuzeasca, venita din Paris, o puteti descarca si folosi pentru multe proiecte frumoase.   

DIY: A Shabby Chic wooden easel and a free French graphic for you

You can use decals to transfer the image, you can find all about decals here or any other transfer method. And that's it! The most amazing Shabby Chic wooden easel, if you ask me :)  

If you like this idea, share it with your friends and family, or save it on Pinterest for later, so you know exactly where to find it! :) Would love to hear your thoughts on this, so feel free to leave a comment below.
________________________

Pentru transferul de imagine puteti folosi decalurile, aflati aici totul despre decaluri.
Ei bine, asta e tot! Cel mai tare sevalet Shabby Chic din lemn, daca ma intrebati pe mine! :)

Daca va place ideea, dati share pentru prieteni si familie, sau salvati-o pe Pinterest pentru mai tarziu, sa stiti exact unde o gasiti! :) Mi-ar placea sa aud cum vi se pare, nu va sfiiti sa lasati un comentariu mai jos.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites / Bilute de cocos cu ciocolata neagra

If I would have to describe these dark chocolate coconut bites in only a few words, I would say: 
perfection in small portions
What is there more to say, right? :) They are just perfect.  
And homemade, which is a big plus, because you get to control all the ingredients and you know exactly what you use. They are vegan, gluten free, you don't have to bake them and are super easy to make. Which makes them THE perfect choice for a quick but luscious dessert.

The only problem is ... they are so good, you might be tempted not to share :) 

___________________

Daca ar trebui sa descriu in cateva cuvinte bilutele de cocos cu ciocolata neagra, as spune:
perfectiune in portii mici.
Ar mai trebui spus ceva? :) Chiar sunt pur si simplu perfecte.
Si sunt facute in casa, ceea ce e un mare plus, pentru ca detii controlul asupra tuturor ingredientelor si stii exact ce pui in ele. Sunt vegane, fara gluten, nu trebuie coapte si sunt super usor de facut. Ceea ce le face alegerea PERFECTA atunci cand vine vorba de un desert rapid si savuros.

Singura problema e ca ... sunt atat de bune incat s-ar putea sa fiti tentati sa nu le impartiti cu nimeni :)



Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites


Ingredients:

♥ 2 cups shredded coconut  3-4 tablespoons honey  5 tablespoons virgin coconut oil*
♥ 160 g dark chocolate
 1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions: 

1. Use a food processor or a blender and pulse the shredded coconut a few times.
2. Transfer to a bowl and add the honey, the melted coconut oil and the vanilla.
3. Incorporate all the ingredients using your hands. 
4. Before giving each ball its round shape, keep the mixture in your palm and squeeze it for a few seconds. Make 16-18 small balls following the same process.
5. Put them in the fridge for about half an hour.
6. Melt the chocolate by putting it in a small bowl over a simmering pan with water. Make sure the bowl does not touch the bottom of the pan. Stir continuously until smooth and silky. 
7. Remove the coconut balls from the fridge and roll each ball into the melted chocolate until completely covered, using two forks. Let the chocolate drip off the fork and back into the bowl before putting each coconut ball on wax paper. 
8. Put them in the fridge until the chocolate has hardened. 


Bilute de cocos cu ciocolata neagra


Ingrediente:

450 g fulgi de cocos  3-4 linguri miere  5 linguri ulei de cocos virgin
 160 g ciocolata neagra
 1 pastaie de vanilie sau 1 lingurita extract de vanilie (optional)

Instructiuni:

1. Puneti fulgii de cocos intr-un robot de bucatarie si apasati butonul ''pulse'' de cateva ori.
2. Transferati cocosul intr-un bol si adaugati mierea, uleiul de cocos topit si vanilia.
3. Amestecat toate ingredientele cu mana.
4. Inainte de a da fiecarei bilute forma rotunda, tineti umplutura in podul palmei si strangeti pret de cateva secunde. Faceti 16-18 bilute urmand acelasi proces.
5. Puneti-le in frigider pentru aproximativ o jumatate de ora.
6. Topiti ciocolata intr-un bol, pe bain marie, punand bolul intr-o oala cu putina apa, care fiebe la foc mic. Aveti grija ca bolul sa nu atinga fundul oalei. Amestecati continuu pana ciocolata devine moale si lucioasa ca matasea.
7. Scoateti bilutele de cocos din frigider si dati fiecare biluta prin ciocolata topita, pana este acoperita complet, folosind doua furculite. Lasati ciocolata sa curga de pe furculita inapoi in bol, inainte de a pune fiecare biluta de cocos pe hartie de copt.
8. Puneti la frigider pana ciocolata se intareste.


The waiting part is the hardest part, trust me. Especially now that the whole house smells amazing from all that coconut oil.
It's really important that you use coconut oil for this recipe and not other oils because coconut oil will harden and will keep all that yummy mixture together.
___________________

Partea cu asteptatul e cea mai grea, credeti-ma. Mai ales acum ca toata casa miroase atat de bine de la uleiul de cocos.
E foarte important sa folositi ulei de cocos pentru aceasta reteta si nu alt tip de ulei, pentru ca uleiul de cocos se va intari si va lega bine de tot amestecul delicios facut mai devreme.


I am a huge fan of coconut oil and I am crazy for Nutiva coconut oil* lately.
I absolutely love it, if you want to give it a try, you can find it on Amazon* or iHerb

Here are some interesting facts about coconut oil.  

Did you know that ...?

Coconut oil is considered to be a superfood and can be used on so many things, whether it is for cooking purpose (like supercharging a smoothie or many other foods or drinks with beneficial saturated fats) or for body care products (you can use it like it is as massage oil, or you can use it to make homemade lotions or soap, toothpaste and many others).    

So you'll even get an extra bonus after making the coconut balls - your hands will be extra soft and super hydrated and they will smell coconutty divine, all natural and healthy! 

___________________

Eu sunt fan ulei de cocos si in ultima perioada sunt innebunita dupa uleiul de cocos Nutiva*. Pur si simplu il ador! Daca vreti si voi, il puteti comanda online de pe Amazon* sau de pe iHerb, in magazinele din Romania nu l-am vazut inca.

Iata cateva chestii interesante despre uleiul de cocos.

Stiati ca ...?

Uleiul de cocos e considerat a fi un superaliment care poate fi folosit pentru o gramada de lucruri, fie ca e vorba de gatit (cum ar fi energizarea si incarcarea unui smoothie sau a altor mancaruri sau bauturi cu grasimi saturate benefice)  sau in scopuri cosmetice (cum ar fi folosirea lui direct ca ulei de masaj sau ca si ingredient in realizarea lotiunilor si a sapunurilor homemade, a pastei de dinti, etc). 

Va veti alege si cu un extra bonus dupa ce terminati de facut bilutele de cocos - niste maini foarte fine si super hidratate, parfumate de un miros divin de cocos, in varianta naturala si sanatoasa!



Good to know when buying coconut oil 

Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and it starts to melt at 76 degrees Fahrenheit, so depending on the temperature outside, you can buy it in a solid or liquid state.  

Make sure you carefully read the labels when trying to buy coconut oils, it seems some of them are not suitable for eating and can only be used in making body care products.

 ___________________

Bine de stiut atunci cand vreti sa cumparati ulei de cocos 

Uleiul de cocos se afla in stare solida la temperatura camerei si incepe sa se topeasca la 24 grade Celsius, asa ca, in functie de temperatura de afara, il puteti cumpara in stare lichida sau solida.

Aveti grija sa cititi cu atentie eticheta, se pare ca unele dintre ele nu sunt destinate consumului alimentar, putand fi folosite doar pentru realizarea produselor cosmetice.





Hope I convinced you to give these dark chocolate coconut goodies a try. And maybe decide to eventually share them with your loved ones! :)
  ___________________

Sper ca v-am convins sa incercati si voi minunatiile astea de cocos cu ciocolata neagra si sper ca, pana la urma, veti decide ca merita sa fie impartite cu cei dragi! :)

Don't forget to smile / Nu uitati sa zambiti,
Diana
