I made it out of an old journal and just some magazine strips and clippings. The front is just random strips woven together and taped on. The back is all perfume bottles. You could pick any theme: Rings, flowers, eyes...just random stuff. Whatever. I really like how it came out. I've already gotten requests from other people.
Okay, so I just made a bunch of poly clay stuff. I'm wondering how to seal it. I have this spray gloss acrylic stuff ((PLAID/ Patricia Nimcocks?)) , but I'm a bit hesitant to use it for a few reasons:
1. I'm not sure how big the spray range is. I mean...the things I want to spray are pretty small, and I don't want to end up sealing everything in a 5-foot radius, you know what I mean?
2. I don't know if it's okay to use for the clay.
3. I'm kind of scared that this stuff is going to kill me! LOL I mean, there's all this warning stuff on back, going on about harmful vapors and containing a chemical known to cause cancer in the state of California. It seems a bit hyperbolic. I mean really, if it were that dangerous would they let people sell it?
So, can someone help me out here, give me some information on this stuff? Should I use it, or just get some paint on sealer or nail polish or something?
Alrighty, so I have my very first package of plolymer clay and I'm terribly excited. I wanna get started. BUT. I'm making christmas presents, and I want to make heart necklaces, but I don't have a heart-shaped cookie cutter. I looked all over the freaking store, but there were NONE. Soooo...could someone help me to make decent looking hearts? Or maybe come up with a solution for an improvised heart 'cookie-cutter'? Please and thank you!
I'm a TOTAL novice sewer. I can make rectangles. And that's just about it.
The one time I tried to make something from a pattern, the results were completely disasterous. Really. It was terrible.
Soooo, what I'm asking of you crafsters is this: Can anyone point me in the direction of a good website that can help me "read" a pattern? I guess it was stupid of me to use that first pattern without knowing how, but I learned! Now I just need help figuring out all the markings and such.
Okay, so I made a hoodie, and I want to stencil something tennis-related on it, since I put a little tennis ball on the pocket.
I've got a list of possibilities, but I can't choose/decide if they sound stupid. Here's the list:
1. Servin Up Aces Since 2005 ((When I started playing.)) 2. Game Set Match ((I have a specific idea for this one: Put 'Game' then under that '1-0', then 'Set' and under it '6-0', then 'Match' and '6-0, 6-0'.)) 3. Go Ahead...Try and Drop Shot Me 4. Go Hard or Go Home 5. Meet Me on the Court...It's Goin' Down 6. I'll Go Easy On You...Next Time 7. Don't Let the Frilly Skirt Fool You 8. MATCHPOINT ... No Pressure. =]
Btw, the '...' indicates diff. sides of the shirt. Like: I love you...not! 'I love you' is on the front, and 'not!' is on the back.
Alright, that's all I've got so far. If you have any suggestions, please share. If not, just pick your favorite.
I've been on for about 3 weeks, and lurking ((seems to be a craftster habit!)) for about two months. But I just discovered this board, so I thought I'd introduce myself!
Well...I'm not going to give my name, but I'm 15, a sophmore in high school, a varsity tennis player, and I live in Texas! I am SUCH a pack rat, and I always thought that was bad...until this site! Now I have reason to not throw anything away! As a result my room is now more of a disaster area than before! But I truly LOVE this site, so much inspiration and cool ideas.
I'm a very friendly person, feel free to PM me randomly!
I've gotten way more into crafting since I found this wonderful place. I was just thinking that maybe I should stock up on some basic supplies for crafting. I made a list, but it's very short. So far all I have is regular glue, superglue/E6000, ribbon, beads, and duct tape.
Just so you know, I'm into recycled crafts, making purses/wallets, and a bit of amateur sewing.
I was wondering what I should add to my list of basic supplies to always keep on hand in case I'm in a crafty mood.
Just tell me what you like to have all the time, please?
