Colour, value, texture, space (A variety of colours, in different values, have been placed on the plane in such a manner as to create space. This is emphasised by the black background, which peeks through in the gaps. The tonal variation of one colour hue creates texture) by batjas88

These tender, flaky scones are all about the butter. And since the flavor of the butter really shines through, this is a good time to splurge on a high-quality Irish butter like Kerrygold. The extra flaky, buttery texture is achieved by using a technique borrowed from puff pastry—spreading butter onto the rolled-out dough and folding it in layers. by marta

Then, using a sharp pencil dipped in white paint, create larger stars by making X shapes. I also added some dot-shaped by Jinx62

Eco-Sustainable Housing | Project by: Federico Rossi | The idea of improving the light conditions and creating different micro climate areas inside the unit was solved with the use of local materials (limestone) and simple manufacturing techniques. Cutting the stone in different sizes that respond to the variation of solar radiation along a surface is possible thanks to complex geometries, such as the arch. by betsy

Homemade Little Debbie Star Crunch. Caramel and butter are melted and combined with marshmallows to create a gooey sweet sauce for crispy rice cereal, which provides texture and crunch. The treats are very dense, extra chewy, the flavor is caramely and rich, and the milk chocolate coating makes them taste just like a Star Crunch. No-bake, fast, and so authentic. by jean

Strip and re-stain wood furniture. I did a little research on stripping stain, and decided to try the CitriStrip spray. I just sprayed a layer onto the finish and let it sit for about 30 minutes. I came back and used a plastic scraper on most of the table and steel wool on the more detailed areas, like the legs. It came off…like butter. Use gloves. by vicki

Elmer's Glue mixed with liquid watercolor makes the paint, which is dripped onto a clear piece of Dura-lar film. The film is then folded in half and pressed together, allowing the colors to spread and mesh. Opened up and pressed against a canvas or piece of paper, what remains is a whimsical and colorful image. Permanent markers are then used to define patterns and shapes within that image. by penny

Packaging of colour pencils which can be used as a pencil case. The idea was to create an object which would be small when closed, but which would give access to pencils and expose them all when open. It's ecological, as made of corrugated fiberboard. Its graphic design (two versions: geometric motif or cats) encourages children to use the surface of the pencil case for their drawings. Easy in use and cheap in production. by catherine
