woohoo, more misfits art!! love it!! i did a glitter magnet,,,in tribute, we should totally start a misfits swap!!!! what do ya think? glenn would love it....heheehee here are some of my misfits projects ( can delete if it takes up too much space....)
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! soooo, you had asked me about the jay and silent bob magnet, sure, I'l love to swap!!!!(im so glad someone thought it was as cool as i did!!) every one that comes into the house always asks if its them! i just thought i'd point out that this lil skull embrod. kicks arse, not to mention the mohawk!~ i dont know if i would have to bulk up my work load..but i have a 1 year old daughter...wears 2 year old sizes usually to be safe..i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see her rock one of these! like i said, i realize its bigger than my magnet(a lil bigger than my hand..) but i would make it fair if its too much crafting!! just lemme know, i like your lil snails and owls too..(Sylvia Danger has a pink elephant/ mad wonderland themed room...so all that would go too! thanks so much!~ cole
Hulloooooo!! so, my fellow craftsters...i have so many projects to share!! im soooo excited to be finally posting after just lurking so long. Now, i wasnt sure where to put these, but they turned out way better than i thought, and i now realize *painting* with glitter is fun!! I got this cheap sticky magnet paper, and i have an AWESOME assortment of glitter( and dont forget that powdered eye shadow works awesome too!!!)due to my resin casting so, i did kinda a homage to some of my fav. icons.... beginning with Jim Morrison to perk up my fridge a lil...

and this is a size comparison, so you can see how glitter-tastic it all is!!
The secret is...*drumroll* at DollarTree, they have packs of self adhesive magnetic paper. They come in many different sizes to suit your project!!! FOR JUST ON DOLLAR! All i did was use an Exacto knife to cut the parts that corresponded with the color i was applying (start with darker colors...so the lighter ones dont get tinted...) Peel up the paper covering to expose the sticky stuff, then pour on glitter and shake off excess ( im a freak about conserving,,its crazy). Usually after you apply the glitter, nothing else will stick to the surface UNLESS.... you use chunky stuff, then you would apply that last, or blend another color into the cracks...Seriously though, the possibilities are endless. I took pictures (my friends and family or magazine cutouts) and applied them by cutting out exactly the space around the edge, then decorating around with different shapes and colors of glitter. this is a cool sparrow pic i cut out during a decoupage madness period...
a cute hardcore nurse...
and this actual glitter painting i did of a weird spaceman pic holding a spatula,,heehee
going batty...(you can see the stencil i used for the jim magnet...)
Words can be stenciled in too! it really is something for a fun rainy day project. It makes my fridge kick arse!!OH!! When i was done with all of them, i sprayed them with acrylic sealer just in case...so far they have held up fine. My lil sis said i could totally sell them, i dunno, but I love glitter!! and they make me happy!! I hope this helps, and remember, if you cant find the magnet paper, just ask some one, sometimes its behind the counter... I HOPE THIS HELPS ALL YOU GLITTER FANATICS!!!
OK, so i finally got my butt movin around here!! Im so glad, i have so many projects that i make, i know i've been inspired by the wonderful talent on this site, i can only hope someone gets an idea from my own work!!! This little guy is a cartoon character i came up with awhile ago, and i just happened to find this SUPER cool, stylin 1960's vintage Jap. purse for...*what i always pay for everything....* $1.00!!! add a little sharpie, and there ye be, i spiffy purse to rock out!!!
then theres this little number all decked out in pink is another thrift store dollar find...I love it!! im really into monochromatic schemes, i think HooHoo does well with it!!
and this really is just a bad pic, but whatever, i did a BUNCH of purses at the same time, ya know how crafter ADD is...Well, this is *hardcorekittie*, one of the many incarnations of our kittieandalunchbox logo, i just love her!! this was a free awesome art or laptop bagmy aunt (who helped teach me how to thrift as a kid at yardsales!!) so what do ya think? Yay, nay?burn it to the ground?!!!
hahahayeah, i did a couple with my brother, sister and my baby teeth in them, and my best friend did some animal teeth, some people thought it was gross, but we actually had people order, like keepsakes for lost/deceased pets and memory charms with baby teeth!! i think its cool! and yes...oh yesRESIN IS SOOOOOO ADDICTIVE!!!!
