1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wire Tree! *With photos* 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  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Face it, Tiger, you just hit the [shoe] jackpot! *With Pictures, of course* 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.


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.)

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Best Stuff to Use for Decoupage on: July 07, 2008 06:48:38 PM
So, I'm jumping head first into decoupage, and I tried Mod Podge today because I hear so many people mention it on here. I was wondering if Mod Podge is the best to use, however, or if there is something better that people use. Also, what's the best technique for tackling air bubbles?
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Magnetic Paper? on: July 05, 2008 05:34:06 PM
So, I remember reading something somewhere in this forum about magnetic paper, and yesterday I told my mom about it, and she wants to try it out. (She's a fourth grade teacher, if she tries it and likes it, she will buy some, but I remembered that there was a website for it, and I said I would try to get her a sample). Does anybody remember where I could snag a sample from?
