DIY superhero shoes

I am geeking out hard over these shoes — how absolutely awesome are they?! I am such a big Marvel fan and I can't wait to try this DIY tutorial for myself. The good part about this DIY project is that it is fairly easy, but the result makes it look like it was very difficult! This DIY tutorial comes from the wonderfully creative people at Comic Con Family.


For this project, you will need:
-- A pair of white canvas shoes
-- 2 packs of Avengers (or any other superhero) napkins (you can usually find these at Wal-mart in the party section, at Party City or online)
-- Painter's tape
-- Mod Podge (matte) (if you want the shoes to be water resistant, get Outdoor Mod Podge)
-- Small paintbrush
-- 2 bowls or cups
-- X-acto knife
-- Clear plastic wrap or plastic bags
-- Sponge brushes
-- Clear sealant spray (optional)
You can find the majority of these items at a craft store.

Protect the soles of the shoes

Use the painter's tape to completely cover the soles of the shoes. The Mod Podge doesn't work as well on rubber so you want to make sure only the canvas fabric of the shoes is exposed.

Pick out your superhero

Unfold the superhero napkins all the way. Pick out the superhero that you want to put on the shoe and use the small paintbrush to paint a thin line of water around that super here. Then, slowly pull the napkin piece away from the rest of the napkin.

Paint on the Mod Podge

Use the sponge brush and the Mod Podge to paint on the shoe where you want to put the napkin piece. Then, place the napkin piece on the shoe. Take a piece of plastic wrap and wad it up and rub it over the napkin piece to remove any wrinkles or air bubbles.

Continue adding napkin pieces to the entire shoe

Repeat the previous steps to cover the entire shoe with piece of the superhero napkin. Make sure the entire canvas part of the shoe is covered. Let the Mod Podge dry completely.

Clean up the shoe and seal the napkins

Use the X-acto knife to cut around the sole of the shoe and then remove the painter's tape. Make sure to take your time while cutting the napkins off so that you get a clean line. You will also need to use the X-acto knife to remove the napkin pieces from around the shoelace eyelets. Then, if you want, spray a layer of clean sealant spray over the entire shoe to seal the art. String the shoelaces back through the eyelets.

Rock your awesome superhero-themed shoes!

MURTAZA HASHWANI | WHY MANDALA IS ALWAYS IN A CIRCULAR FORM? You have undoubtedly seen or heard of a Mandala if you have ever met Asian art. And today this blog is all about the Mandala Art. I, Murtaza Hashwani, am going to answer why Mandala is always created or starts to create in a form of circle? With my previous blog you guys have the information that Sanskrit term "mandala" literally translates as "circle" in English. And that is why it is created in a circular form which is very basic. But if you go into the depth of it, you will find many reasons that are connected to Hindu and Buddhism religion. So, without wasting any time let’s dive into the ocean of knowledge with Murtaza Hashwani AKA me.  Mandala art is depicting totality of the psychic ground and serves as a cosmic diagram to remind one of their connections to the infinite, a universe both within and outside of their mind and body. It is more than simply a geometric formation of symbols and patterns.  A mandala is a symbol that denotes internal change and symbolizes a person's spiritual journey; it acts as a guide for numerous spiritual disciplines practiced in Asian traditions, such as yoga and meditation. Mandalas are generally used as a roadmap for the journey to enlightenment and liberation in Hindu and Buddhist civilizations.  A Mandala is often a circular surrounded by a square, divided into pieces, and arranged around a single center point. The center is a dot, which denotes that it lacks dimensions. It is encircled by lines and patterns that symbolize the surroundings and the universe and is seen as the beginning of contemplation.  A mandala may be found in many aspects of life, including fractals seen in nature and celestial bodies like the Sun, Earth, and Moon. It also exists in man-made shapes found in science, architecture, and other fields. Once you start recognizing these patterns, they begin to appear everywhere, allowing you to make connections and picture how humans and environment are always connected.  The circle itself symbolizes a person's completeness and depicts our entire mind in order to demonstrate the majesty of the Self.  The circle is a universal symbol for completeness, harmony, and oneness. It also represents the womb, motherhood, and caring. According to experts, the circle in mandalas represents both fresh starts and a state of completion.  Invest in a Bull's eye mandala design if you're looking for a circle mandala to improve focus and concentration since it has circles inside circles that will quickly catch your attention. It can aid in improving your ability to concentrate and focus overall as well as help you focus your attention while you are meditating. 
Best Shaving Secret--EVER!
No doubt you've seen a bazillion tips, tricks and secrets to getting the best shave of your life! And like a lot of "hacked" information, you're lucky to see okay results with even half of the cool ideas. Here's ONE SECRET tip that will work and make you wonder, WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?! You can purchase sugar scrub, which is really convenient or you can make your own. I like the Archipelago Botanicals Black Honey Sugar Scrub because it's relatively inexpensive, at $19 for eight ounces. The sugar scrub is the perfect base to gently exfoliate and remove dulling dirt, toxins and dead cells. Natural antioxidants and alpha hydroxyl acids work together to make skin look young and healthy. Gentle enough for everyday use. Recommended for normal and dry skin types. Why it works: The exfoliating sugar scrub is going to loosen and remove excess dead skin. It's also going to lubricate your legs for shaving. While it's easy to rinse off, it's also going to leave your legs feeling luxuriously smooth and sleek. Perfect for mules, which you see in the photo above. They're Mansur Gavriel mules, to be precise, which were recently unveiled in New York. This is the first footwear collection from the uber luxury bag designer. 15 fabulous colors to choose from! @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @mikayla @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @petname83 @TinaDang @dimplequeen @tiffany1922 @atmi @ZoilaObregon @brinJSN @CelinaGonzalez @JessicaChaney @Animaniafreak @CrystalBlunt @AliciaJaneth @NaraA @TurtleyTurtles @sherrysahar @raenel @CandaceJordan @LemonLassie @AprilNapier @peahyr @MyAffairWith @SarahRegulski @HappyLulie @GingerMJones @humairaa @yellowbug18 @reaper412
