Vivianne Lapointe‘s lovechild Live Fast Mag curates the best of fashion, art, sex, and travel on the web.

Scroll Kit is an intuitive web app that allows even the most CSS-challenged of web users to create stunning, scrolling websites. When you create a scroll, you’ll receive an empty canvas where you can place and rearrange images, text, and anything else you can think of with the click of a mouse. When you’re finished, your scroll — a birthday invite, a thank you note, a pretty way to tell your roommate it’s his turn to do the dishes — is published with just one click. Designed by Cody Brown and Kate Ray, Scroll Kit promises web design that’s accessible to anyone.

Silk is an exploration into generative art, created by Yuri Vishnevsky. Drag and click the mouse to “weave silk,” which can then be saved as an image. No matter how devoid of artistic talent you are, you can still create something beautiful.
