7 awesome crafts you probably didn't know existed7 Awesome Crafts you probably didn't know existed
The world of crafting is fascinating and never ending. We have been crafting since the first human molded some mud into a pot, and a seemingly endless list of crafts has been created since. Some crafts are very well known, and you have probably dabbled a bit into them yourself... but some of them are a lot less known. I put some examples together, please enjoy them and leave a comment below letting us know how many of them you already knew if you know any unknown crafts, feel free to share them with us!
Extra credits if you already tried some of these!
Note: These are NOT totally obscure crafts that are only practiced in remote places of the world or that require specialized equipment, I chose crafts that should be easy enough to pick up but not a lot of people are doing.

Incredible works of art can be made even from the humble common stone. Precious or semi-

Beautiful Jewelry Feature 1!Hello all, my name is Gianna and while browsing through my favorites here on Deviant Art again, I decided to feature some of the amazing jewelry I've come across. I think that these pieces of jewelry are beautiful, one of a kind, unique pieces and the artists are truly talented. As a fellow jewelry artist I can appreciate the detail and work that goes into each piece and that is why I am featuring them here. I hope you all enjoy this jewelry as much as I do and that it inspires you to create more.More Like This

Understanding your camera's exposure settingsIn this post I’ll be discussing Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO. The three camera settings that control “exposure” – the brightness of your photo.More Like This
There are three settings on your camera that control exposure: Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO.
The Aperture is the thing that opens when you press the shutter button on your camera. The ‘aperture setting’ determines how big the opening will be. It's measured in f-stops. The smaller the f-stop number the larger the opening, and hence the more light that gets in.
The Shutter Speed determines how long the aperture stays open. Shutter speed is measured in fractions of a second. The faster the shutter, the less light that gets in.
The ISO setting determines the camera’s sensitivity to light. Think of it as a light amplifier. The higher the ISO, the brighter the image.
In most cases you will want fast shutter speeds (to eliminate blur), low ISO (to reduce noise), and an appropriate aperture setting to g
Top ten tips for doing the 365 challenge! 1)Perfect isn't always possibleMore Like This
I once made the mistake of getting a pretty good shot (yes really!) and then expecting the same thing to fall into my hands day after day. Don't let 'fame' put you off. If you win a contest with an image, get into the newspaper, get a DD, or get 'freshly pressed' on wordpress, don't let it make you think that you can't achieve the same again. You can. Just maybe not for another 365 days! Let yourself be perfect and not so perfect. Capture the epic images, but also capture the everyday ones. You never know when they will surprise you.
When you see something around your home or local area that you think needs Photographing, write it down! I've got a little notebook in which I keep all my current ideas for the 365 Challenge. I also have back up plans for days when I'm insanely busy and need to get a quick capture, and other things in the bag for when I know I'm going to need a bit of

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

Tea PaintingArtist's ToolboxMore Like This
It smells lovely and gives beautiful sepia tones and great textures - what's not to love about tea and coffee painting?
Different effects and shades can be acquired by using different kinds of tea. Black tea is the easiest to use, since it's also the easiest to make the darkest essence with it, while white tea and green tea are much harder in this manner. I prefer teabags (only for painting though), but using leafy tea can create interesting textures, if you leave the leaves on paper until the whole layer dries. You can use tea bags as stamps!
Painting with coffee is similar, although the differences in shade aren't that significant. You need to be careful with instant coffee - thick layers can get sticky and shiny even after it's dry. Ground coffee and textures go along very well, if you leave the grounds on paper, ju

Demystifying the Poetry GalleryGalleries MonthMore Like This
Hi! ShadowedAcolyte here for projecteducate, and today we're going to talk about the categories and options in the Poetry Gallery. Well, mostly I'm going to be the one talking, but there will be discussion questions at the end!
So you're uploading a poem, and you've successfully navigated to Literature, and then to Poetry. What now? (I'm assuming your poem isn't in someone else's canon setting; if it is, it belongs under Literature > Fan Fiction instead.) Your first options are the "genre" categories (and yes, we're using the term loosely): Children's, Emotional, Family Life, General Poetry, Horror, Human Nature, Humor, Narrative, Nature, Romantic, Sociopolitical, Spiritual, and Transgressive.
Most of these are pretty self-explanatory, but it's easily possible that your poem could fit properly in multiple categories (a poem about romance could easily explore human nature or even spiritual themes). In these situations, pick t

The RAW Format
Not every camera has the option to use RAW, but many do and I highly suggest you use it! I shoot in RAW about 90% of the time. Shooting in RAW retains all the data on the sensor, and doesn't compress it, unlike JPEG. This kind of file is a lossless format.
If you have a question, please comment below!
[You can also click one of the files and comment in my sta.sh!]
Hopefully this has helped you.

Before you hit the Caps Lock button and begin an essay about the drop of quality of DDs, stop. Take a deep breath, maybe walk around for a bit to cool down, and think about what you're going to do. To begin with, complaining about the DD leaving a comment is extremely disrespectful for the artist because most of the time, they didn't even ask to be featured. Instead, take a moment to consider why was it picked, DDs are chosen for far more than just being visually attractive, as the article Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend explained; we often look f
