Six for Saturday (or Sunday!)

Hello, lovely readers!  Here are some great creative ideas, discoveries, links and likes to inspire your creativity this weekend, all in a nature inspired DIY theme. If you decide to make something fabulous, create a treasury, or post something special to your blog, Facebook, or website this weekend, please feel free to share in the comments or post it at Creativity Unmasked on Facebook.  Looking for creative more ideas? Catch last weeks post here and I also have a whole board full of of tutorials and DIY on Pinterest. Have a fabulous creative weekend!

Create a nature-inspired bleach paint effect on fabric (Paula Deen)
  1. Let nature's textures be your template and create your own nature-inspired clay plates and bowls (Creature Comforts).  This is definitely on my must-try list!
  2. Create a sun dyed natural silhouette (She Knows). If you don't have access to sun dye or light sensitive fabric, you can DIY your way to a similar effect using bleach to create a nature-inspired bleach paint effect on fabric (Paula Deen)
  3. Test your creative flower power with the floral tutorial and DIY round up (Plushka), written for the Plushka blog as a guest post by me - yippee!
  4. Spice up your herb garden by making your own chalkboard terracotta pots (Martha Stewart).  Prefer markers instead? Make your own spoon plant markers (Domestic Simplicity) or stamped clay plant markers (Wit&Whistle).
  5. Trim up the garden and make some amazing botanical art, like the DIY botanical silhouette prints or add a touch of natural beauty to your photos by adding a little leaf print matting. Prefer to press them instead? Learn how to press plants (all links from BHG)
  6. Reap something beautiful with what you sow using handmade plantable paper (Alpha Mom)
Olympic Ideas:  All through the games I will be including some bonus ideas and links in my Saturday posts for those of you looking to create some Olympic inspired fun. This weekend, why not try the Olympic torch cupcake how-to from Statsy?  For more ideas, check out the Olympic DIY round-up or my Sporty Creativity board on Pinterest and then go for creative gold! :)

Stay tuned for tomorrow's extra special post where I reveal my Elevated Envelopes in a special DIY tutorial that reveals the creation of my gingerbread house envelopes.
