7  A Very Unique Shell Pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: July 14, 2015 08:15:06 AM

Here's a photo of another piece of beach/shell jewelry I made all those years ago and just found them.  This might just be one of my favorite pieces, b/c the "shell" (I'm not sure if it's really a shell, but I found it on the beach.) is so unique by itself.

What do you think?

8  Oyster Shell Pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: July 13, 2015 12:17:16 PM
A million years ago, I made a bunch of jewelry pieces from items found on the beach (i.e.-sea glass, shells, etc...)  I was going to sell them but never did.  I couldn't find where I put them for many years.  Today, while looking for something else, I found them.  Here's one piece (I love it b/c it's accented with orange, my favorite color!  Cheesy):

10  Upcycled Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: July 09, 2015 01:53:10 PM

This canvas started out as a gift for one of my DDs.  As we were cleaning out their playroom, we came across the canvas, which was half painted.  I didn't want the canvas to go to waste so I kept it, and used white acrylic paint to try and cover over the paint that was already on there.  Surprisingly, the white paint covered hunter green paint, but not the sky blue paint.  Huh

I then used a real sponge I found washed up on the beach, and some acrylic paints and did some sponge painting!  I think it covered the blue parts that the white paint wouldn't cover well.

Then, I used some paper embellishments that I received from the generous kbrison and modpodged them onto the canvas, and the rest of the canvas as well.  When that was all dry, I used acrylic clearcoat spray on the painting.

What do you think?
