1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Ongoing Stash-a-long? on: May 22, 2011 09:18:10 PM
The destashing topic is extremely popular, but what about those of us who don't have very many craft supplies?  Cheesy

Let's make (or collect) things that we can more readily use in our crafting:
-Various papers (stained, aged, burned, painted)
-Embellishments
-Rubber stamps
-Beads
-Jump rings, eye pins, etc.
-Inchie/ATC blanks
-Magazine cutouts
-Primed surfaces for altered art
-Old books

-Share ideas for getting more supplies cheaply
-Collect unlikely craft supplies and turn things we find lying around into craft supplies, such as:
--Old newspapers or for text
--Patterned cardboard from old kleenex boxes
--Unpatterned t-shirts
--Wallpaper samples
--Metal from soft drink cans (be careful with these)
--Nail polish/empty bottles

I've been extremely busy with school and haven't had much time for anything really artsy. But I needed a way to de-stress in the midst of studying for exams, so here these are:



All of them together (the details don't show up so well):


They were a lot of fun to do and I'm pretty happy with the result Cheesy

If you guys would like a tutorial, feel free to post and tell me!

Yep, the themes are only to give ideas to people (like me) who are indecisive and can't make their minds up about what on earth to do. xD Feel free to post any of your work here!

I re-edited the first post for a theme to start a craftalong. But I'm open to any and all suggestions as to how to run this. Smiley

Heya everyone, I don't have the original photo of my inchies for the original post, but I put the preview pic there so there wouldn't be a blank space. xD Now that inchies have gotten popular, I'm sure there are more people willing to participate!

Thanks for the compliments. Smiley I still have a long way to go in terms of skill to make miniatures look as realistic as possible.

School is out! YESSSS I survived freshman year of highschool ._.

So now I have plenty of time to craft! Here are some 1:12 miniature strawberry&cherry tarts, made from Sculpey III. Everything is handmade by me, including the strawberry canes. Cheesy





That's a US dime in the picture. Smiley
