#MakeArtBeMagic Feature 01

The #MakeArtBeMagic hashtag is for use on any social media platform by anyone sharing their creative output in any medium or genre.

The purpose is to celebrate creativity in all its forms. It doesn't matter if you're a professional at the top of your game, a seasoned creator with decades of experience, a hobbyist who creates for the sheer joy of it or a beginner taking your first steps into a new creative endeavour. It doesn't matter if you're having the best day ever and hitting your flow, or summoning determination from the pit of your soul to push through a creative block.
If you make art, you are an artist, and art is magic.

Consider this your personal invitation to recognise and celebrate your creativity by tagging your art with #MakeArtBeMagic when you share it on DeviantArt and beyo

Applying the Colour Theory in Artisan Crafts
Artisan Craft Week
Crafting is a very special form of art that presents its own challenges that are not always shared by other types of artwork. It is, in essence, visual - the first sense that we use to appreciate a crafted piece is sight. Everything else (taste, touch, etc) comes second. As such, choosing how we present our crafting pieces becomes a bit of an art and a bit of science all together. How to grab your viewers' attention and make your craft stand out is something that is both fascinating and potentially profitable. Unfortunately, it is also something that most crafters end up taking for granted. After all, it's a piece of craft... how does colour come into play? That's what we will discuss today. 
The Basics about Colours
It's impossible to talk about colours without getting a little technical, at least in the very beginning. 
Individual colours can be described by three inherent "parameters" that, when put together, distinguish one colour from

Angely et Kuro leur origine
Angely ange de l'eau et aussi un démon
Elle est très mignonne et gentille elle adore aidé les autres les anges ,les démons(malgré qu'elle la pourchasse)les pégases ou autre . Quand elle est triste ses ailes change de couleur et devienne bleu blanc mélanger ,elle fait apparaître une tornade d'eau et un tsunami en même temps qui risque de tuer tout le monde mais pour qu'elle se calme il suffit de chanter une très belle chanson pour la calmer. Elle déteste la violence et et le harcèlement. Elle a le pouvoir d’aidés les gens rien quand la regardant droit dans les yeux.Quand elle est en colère elle devient incontrôlable et contrôle exactement la foudre en même que l'eau et ses ailes change de couleur en noir. Elle a su qu'elle avait un frère le jour ou l'océan lui a parlé. 
Kuro hybride ange et démon
Son nom était Draco mais il avait découvert son vrai nom: Kuro .Il

Quilt tutorial: how to quilt your own awesome star
Artisan Craft week
Welcome to this tutorial! Here I'll explain to you how to make your own 'patchwork' star. Patchwork is what quilters call sewing tiny pieces of fabric together. The technique used in this article is very accessible, even if it's only because I haven't figured out all the fancy techniques yet myself :P. It has served me well for many years, so it is time to share it with you all. You'll see, once you get the hang of the basics, a whole new world of fabric and possibilities will open up to you!
This is what you're going to make:

What you'll need:
Graph paper + penFabricFabric scissorNeedleThread, ideally a colour matching one of the fabricsPinsTeaspoon or iron
Some basic information:
The pattern I’ve given is 16 x 16 centimetre. However, because it's drawn on graph paper you can make it as big o

Feel we're going to break out

I really wanna see your face, and I see...

Preview - Cinder's Faction vs. League Of Villains

The Kingdom of Vale, Nighttime
1 am
"Did we really have to come back here again, to this stupid, destroyed place roamed by Grimm? It's not like I just barely survived being swallowed by one of those goddamn abominations, so of course I'm taking part in this pointless mission to retrieve some "relic", whatever that's supposed to be anyway." A man with a bowler hat and a cigar in his mouth mumbled to himself. Roman Torchwick could've imagined lots of locations where he'd rather be at this point, due to not exactly having nice memories about the last time he was here.
"Can't help it, Roman. Cling together, swing together." The black-haired woman in the red dress next to him said, a glass mask covering parts of her face. Turning his head, Roman looked into the glowing right eye of Cinder Fall. He hated her so much. If it wasn't for the money, he would've never get himself into the deal she and this woman
