1  Wire Tree! *With photos* in Completed Projects by KittyPryde87 on: July 22, 2008 07:37:41 AM
I honestly had no idea where to put this.
I found some old craft wire, and I kind of just started playing with it until it became something... which turned out to be a tree. I then put some beads on for leaves, and made a tiny bird nest. I think it's cute, but you tell me what you think.  Smiley

Overhead shots (sorry about the quality, my camera is very lame)-



Side shots (With my sewing machine whimpering in the background)-



The bottom is a mod podged film canister- I used "Birches" by Robert Frost because I'm a total English nerd.

2  Face it, Tiger, you just hit the [shoe] jackpot! *With Pictures, of course* in Shoes: Completed Projects by KittyPryde87 on: July 09, 2008 08:40:30 PM
So, I just completed one half of my current project- decoupaged Spidey shoes!

I was going to wait until my best friend finished reading my run of Civil War, but I was impatient and ran to my local comic shop, where they have an enormous room full of back order comics. I then spent an hour going through them for Spider-man issues, with the help of two ten-year-olds who kept tossing every Spidey they didn't like my way- which means they handed me mushy issues... which worked fine for me.  Grin I then hit up the thrift shop and snagged a pair of plain black shoes for two dollars. And here is the result-





And, here's the other shoe, still naked. I'll post pictures when it's done.


Any good ideas on how to seal these shoes? I live in Florida, so water is inevitable.

EDIT

So, I finished! I did grab some Outdoor Mod Podge, and I'm actually going to wear them for the first time today. Here's some shots of the other shoe completed:



(You can't read it because of my very lame camera, but The quote is the same as the post title.)
