23  First try at Dekoden in Completed Projects by Riechan on: February 23, 2010 08:39:59 AM
About 2 months ago I became known with something called dekoden. It's short for decoration denwa, which means decorating your phone. It's a Japanese thing. Anyway here's my take on the dekoden thing ^^
First up, my mobile phone:
I used a marble, a little white bow, pearls, butterfly thingy, shell, gold glitter glue and glue.
I glued it not directly onto my phone but onto see-through foil (the ones you use to cover books in to protect them) so that when I'm tired of the design, I can change it! (tip is from VioletLeBeaux: http://violetlebeaux.com/)





After that I bought some modeling paste (paste which painters use for bringing textures into acrylic paintings)
and went for a whipped cream look. I used decorating tips to create the cream effect. It dried fully after 3 days (or earlier)
It was a very boring first-aid kit, but now it looks like this:





more pictures can you find on my blog

Let me know what you think ^^

24  Glass etching: first try in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Riechan on: February 14, 2010 05:57:29 AM
I was always wondering how to make something like an etched glass.
Than I found out you could do it with some sort of very dangerous product which my local craft store didn't have.
After I saw the tutorial on threadbanger where they use a dremel, I was sure that I could try to etch a glass like that and I did ^^
It's a almost square glass I bought at the thrift store (thought it would be easier as a starter).
It's a glas featuring my little comic: De Piepkes

It wasn't that difficult, just make sure you have a steady hand 'cause on one side I make a little mistake (I scratched the glass outside the drawing but you can't see it that well on the pictures)

Work in progress:


Finished glass modeled with Ice Tea <3
I only did 3 sides 'cause the Johnny Walker sign was on the fourth side.







Here's the tutorial I used!: http://www.threadbanger.com/decorityourself/episode/DEC_20100120/glass-etching-beer-brewing-decor-it-yourself

Teehee, now I want to etch every glass I see Cheesy
Hope you like it!

ETA: some safety things:
Beware! cover your mouth with a scarf or something and use safety glasses to make sure you don't get any glass particles in your eyes and mouth!!
I also put on a little vacuum cleaner while I was working just to make sure none of those little particles would
escape!

28  Easy Belgian Cooking: Potatoes (Recipe) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Riechan on: November 25, 2009 01:52:35 PM
I don't like potatoes... Cooked boiled potatoes that is. I love them fried, baked, mashed, oven-served, but cookedboiled... yuck.
This is something I have made a couple of times now,, using baked potatoes and some leftover.
It doesn't get any easier.
Also, I LOVE 1 pot cooking... which means less dishes and it just feels cosier Cheesy
So here's my recipe for Potatoes (I have to think up a name for this dish Cheesy if anyone has ideas, please tell me Wink )

Recipe
Ingredients
- potatoes (already cooked ones or the packages you can buy in the supermarket which say, ready to bake)
- Meat: chicken (sliced in pieces), ground meat (pork or beef, your choice), ...
- 1 onion, chopped
- a bit of cheese (sliced in to very little pieces)
- milk or water
- 1, 2 tablespoons of flour
- Mushrooms
(if you don't have onions or mushrooms, you can add what you like)

How to
- Bake your meat in a frying pan.
- Fry the onion a bit in another frying pan than the meat.
- Toss your potatoes with your chopped onion.
- if your meat is ready, put it in the frying pan with the potatoes and onions.
- Add the mushrooms
- While this is baking, Add the cheese, Don't forget to stir 'cause the cheese burns easy.
- Take a little cup, mix the tablespoon of flour with a little more than a bottom of water or milk
- Throw this in the frying pan and stir. You'll get some sort of sauce, (if you would like more sauce, keep adding another mixture of
  milk/water and flour
- Have a happy meal! (lol, this was not the intention to quote McDonalds... I don't like the food there... if you can speak of food...)

30  Bottlecap bracelet: Japanese paper (+ little TUT) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Riechan on: November 14, 2009 03:03:56 AM
I was inspired by this post from merrydeath21: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287913.0
to make my own bottlecap bracelet. But since I don't drink Beer (neither do my brother or mum) it was hard to get the caps Cheesy
Luckily I received some bottlecaps in the OWS swap ^^ + I had some lovely japanese paper laying, received in the Nov Birthday swap last year and I thought it would be perfect!

A little Tut:
I first cut a little round shape, saw if it fitted into the caps and than cut them from the japanese paper.
Glue them in the caps with lot's of white craft glue, waited 'till dry (it took a whole day to dry) and than hammered 2 holes in the side
connected them with jump rings, attached a closure and voila! finished ^^

onto the pics:







I need to change the claps though, it's hard to get it on with just one hand Cheesy

So what do you think?
