Over The Rainbow Pizza

 

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces naan or other flatbread (we used Stonefire naan, found in the grocery store deli section)
  • 1/2 cup of your favourite pizza sauce
  • 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 4 cups chopped, colourful vegetables (such as grape tomatoes, orange and yellow bell peppers, broccoli, red onions, and cooked beets)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

     

     

     

    PROCEDURE:

    1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees or Gas Mark 7. Place each piece of naan on a large baking sheet. Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce on each, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle the Parmesan and mozzarella on top.
    2. Layer on the vegetables in a rainbow pattern as shown. Drizzle each pizza with a teaspoon of the olive oil and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning.
    3. Bake the pizzas until the vegetables are tender and the crust is slightly golden, about 20 minutes. Let them cool slightly. If you like, sprinkle on more Parmesan, then slice and serve.

    Glitery Graphic Pencil Case – DIY Art Project

     

    SUPPLIES:

    • Pencil Cases

    • White Paint + Colored Paint of Your Choice (We

      used neon!)

    • Paint Brush

    • Label/Adhesive Paper

    • Scissors or Craft Knife

    • Mod Podge

    • Glitter

    • Confetti

    • Printable Stencil

    PROCEDURE:

    1.     Print out the stencil templates (or other

    design of your choice!) on adhesive label paper

    and cut out the black shapes/letters using scissors

    or a craft knife (be really careful!). Be sure to save

    the hearts from the inside of the glasses and the

    center of the “O” from ZOMG.

     

     

    2.     Peel the backing off the stencil and adhere to the pencil case where desired.

    3.     Paint over the stencil with white paint to act as a primer. Let dry completely.

    4.     Paint with your color of choice and let dry, then peel back your stencil! If any paint seeped through, clean up the edges with a thin paint brush.

    5.     For the sunglasses: Adhere just the outline of the hearts to start and paint white. Let dry. Then put the “lens” cutouts that you saved on top of the white paint. (If the adhesive backing is super sticky, stick it onto your hand first to dull down some of the adhesive.) Then paint with the color you’d like and let dry. Remove the stencils. Lastly, paint mod podge over the remaining white heart shapes and sprinkle with glitter. Let dry, then seal with a final layer of mod podge over top the glitter!

    6.     Fort the confetti case: Paint the entire side of the case with mod podge and sprinkle with confetti. Let dry. If necessary repeat with a second layer, otherwise seal the confetti on with a final layer of mod podge.

    Paint Scrape Eid Cards – DIY Art Project

     

    SUPPLIES:

    • Heavyweight paper, such as cardstock or          watercolour paper trimmed to 8.5″ x 5.5″

    • A2 sized envelopes

    • Acrylic Paints (Thicker paints may need to be         thinned with water.)

    • Masking Tape or Washi Tape      

    • Old Credit Card or Rewards Card

    • Paper Towel and Cleaner or Wipes – you will                    be making a mess!

    • Metallic Gold Alphabet Letter Stickers (or              whatever stickers you like)

    PROCEDURE:

    1.     Start by taping your paper down to your work        surface. Since I was making notecards, I had my              paper cut to 8.5″ x 5.5″. Your work surface will be         getting paint on it, so please don’t do it on your      expensive marble countertops or your heirloom              chest. Have cleaner on hand to clean up quickly                after each piece.

     

     

     

    2.     Drip drops of paint along one side of your  paper. Stagger the drops and vary the colours. Have fun Experimenting with drop placements  and colour combinations.

    3.     Place an old credit card or gift card above the drops on one side of the card and scrape down pulling the card off the edge of the paper on the other side.

    4.     Wipe off the card and remove all the paint before moving to the other side. This will keep both sides looking the same and keep your colors from mixing too much.

    5.     Repeat step 3, scraping the paint down off the edge of the paper again.

    6.     Finally, peel up your piece from the work surface and wipe away any paint that went off the edge of the card.

    7.     Okay, so after you have scraped your paint, cleaned up your mess, and let your beautiful artwork dry, you are ready to finish up your cards. 

    8.     All that’s left to do is fold them in half and add a greeting to the front (if you like). When your cards are folded, you can call them done if you like a simple abstract look, or you can add greetings to the front with letter stickers. You can use a variety of metallic gold stickers for the cards.

    Get Organised! Desk Organisation Command Center

    get_organised

     

    SUPPLIES:

    • 4 Clip Boards
    • 4 Mini Metal Clips
    • 4 Sheets of Cardstock
    • 3 Mini Craft Paper Tags
    • 1 Small Metal Tin
    • Stickers and Embellishments
    • 3/4 inch elastic
    • Stapler
    • Post-it notes
    • Craft Glue/Hot Glue
    • Scissors

    Sit down and think about what 4 areas you

    want to have on your desk command

    center. E.g.:

    1. Calendar
    2. Dry Erase Board
    3. Post-it notes/odds and end storage
    4. Pencil holder/clips for holding notes

    TO MAKE CALENDAR:

    Use a piece of cardstock that comes printed

    with a calendar already on it. You certainly

    could use a pre-made calendar or find a

    printable. Cut it down to size to fit on the

    clipboard. After each month is over replace

    it with a new preprinted month!!

     

     

     

    DRY ERASE BOARD:

    Take a piece of gold foil cardstock, cut the cardstock to fit your clipboard…so easy!! Using some craft glue; glue everything down to the clipboard!!

     

    POST IT NOTES/ODDS AND ENDS STORAGE:

    To make the Post-It note holder, use 3/4 inch elastic and wrap it around the Post-It notepad until it is snug but not too tight. Remove the notepad. While keeping the elastic in the same spot staple the ends together. Now you should have a bracelet type shape from the elastic. It should be just tight enough to hold the sticky pad. Using your hot glue gun secure the elastic to the clipboard. If you use the pop up Post-It notes you won’t have to remove the entire pad every time you need a new sticky note…. pretty cool!! Use a small metal tin and hot glue it to the clipboard. It is the perfect spot for small desk items.

     

    PENCIL HOLDER/CLIPS FOR HOLDING NOTES:

    To make the pencil holders just use some craft paper tags with pockets. The paper is thick enough to withstand holding a few items per tag. Perfect place to store your dry erase markers and scissors! These were all secured with the hot glue gun. Use hot glue gun to secure the metal clips in place.
