Well it's been months and months since i made any fimo stuff, so i bought a whole lot on the weekend and started again. This is half of what i made this morning. And even though they're not perfect, i've been looking at tutorials and improving on my creations. The owl and cupcake are from tutorials, though the colours are different. The voodoo dolls is my own creation and the skull earrings are based on some slightly different ones i saw and desperately wanted.
Ok so i've only posted one pic in the past, of my completely plain ole black curly locks. Now i've done my first attempt at a rockabilly style. I'm still growing out the black and trying to change to red gradually. As i'm not a skinny chick, the rather short fringe is kinda scary to me....but i think if i go out the house and pretend to have confidence perhaps i can carry it off..
I'm going to uni next year as an arts student (finally) and i've been looking for new clothes and things so that i can feel comfortable each day i travel out. And then i thought i'd like some new jewellery to wear as well. Today i bought all the bits and pieces and only spent $10($6.90us), i already had a few of the findings i needed as well. They only took about 5 minutes to whip up, not perfect, but i'm very happy with them. I hope you like them
Well i thought following the spoon craze was going quite well, that i'd attempt to make something with a fork. So this is my first attempt at a fork pendant. I know it's a bit messy, but like they say, you learn through trial and error. I secured the glass beads with clear fishing line, then weaved the wire through for extra stability and to hide most of the line. Don't get me started on trying to twist the prongs! My hand is ok now but gees, maneuvering two pairs of pliers is a bugger
My fiances aunt moved house the other week, and on the weekend i got to rummage through boxes and boxes of stuff. I pulled out two pre-loved photo frames.
This one was a cottage green, and it's just a plain wood. Gave it a couple of coats of black acrylic, cleaned up the glass, hot glued some buttons and cut some wrapping paper to size to put into the frame.
(sorry about the fuzzy, as you see my kitty was interferring lol) This one is made from cotton & lace as you can see by the pattern, it was just a plain white. Again, black acrylic, buttons and a different wrapping paper.
The buttons and wrapping paper both have lots of silver in them as well.
The two of them look SO much better in real life, the pictures really don't do justice.
After seeing another users post on her wonderful spoon collection, i thought i would try my hand at it (not that it would be anywhere near as good as those ones!)
I was told the wire takes away from its 'beauty', but i'm allowed to do what i like lol. Also the wire covers the end of the handle where i've cut and protects me from the corners. It's giving me great Christmas gift ideas too.
I have another on the way which im trying to do with paper/wire collage, thats if the submerged pieces stay where i want them lol. But a full sized soup spoon.
The third one is actually the handle, i don't know why, but i didn't feel like throwing it out and don't have the hand strength to bend it into a ring, and was too short for a bangle. These are only teeny sugar spoons. Tried getting a clear picture, the darker one is the red i was trying to photograph, for some reason the resin looks more orange in pictures.
I didn't have enough time to finish this on my last class, and i just came back from holiday a couple of days ago. So i picked this beauty up only a few hours ago (i planned to give it to my mum for her b'day last week, but she's getting it a week late lol). I had no idea how the colour would turn out. They had no purple (which is what i wanted) so i mixed a few different colours together and got this nice green. Inside and frames have been glazed with glossy white for that nice glow out the window when the candle is lit.
It's not the most perfect shape, but i think it's the best thing to come out of my pottery class since i started. The pics are a lil fuzzy. When i use the flash on glazed items, the pics come out really bright and you can't see half of them, so i left the flash off.
(ps: does anyone else lack the patience when making something that requires leather drying and constant fiddling?)
For those who don't know what a geode is, it is one of these:
Anyway, i remember months ago someone i think on here made them out of pure luck, so i decided to try and make one as well. And i ended up with this:
Seed beads were threaded randomly onto the felt. Also seed beads, pearls, amethyst crystals and felt balls threaded onto the fishing line. I added another length of the fishing line at the top, as trying to thread seed beads all the way up would've made me blind lol. It's probably doesn't look like much in the pic, but it's about twice the size irl.
Well the other day when i was looking for more inspiration, i came across some people who felted soap. It looked pretty good, and i liked the idea of having a washcloth and soap in one nice package, so here is my first attempt (yes, the soap is an odd shape, i think it's easier to stick to flat bars)
I think it would make a great stocking filler for Christmas
