1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / *Now with Pictures!* faux-wood flooring samples turned woodland coaster set on: September 10, 2012 05:16:25 AM
*Edit* It would help if there were pictures, huh? My bad...

I actually work at Home Depot, so don't tell my boss this is what I was doing with all those stolen free samples. I saw them one day and immediately knew I had to draw an owl on them! Although I like how the raccoon turned out the best, I think. It's just gesso, sharpie, and a resin spray, and then I glued some felt to the bottom. It was a great easy craft and a way to get myself back into crafting. I have been awful at getting myself to do it since I got this job.

I love the idea of the sociology necklaces! So cute!

It's braided cord kind of like hemp. It was the only thing I had that even remotely matched because apparently we have no chain in that shiny goldish/copper color >.<

Aww thank you all! ^.^ The butterflies took me the longest out of anyone in the class, probably because I didn't plan it very well and drew most of the composition. But I'm happy with it, and I never have to draw them again! lol

Thanks! I was glad to find French paper so that the words wouldn't really matter, but now I'm kind of curious! It's the times that you don't check what the words mean that end up having something offensive or funny when it's translated.

I suddenly have a TON to post! I just finished my drawing 2 class and this is (most) of the result.

These are origami butterflies done in pastel. It took me FOR.EV.ER. But I'm happy with the results, so... worth it, I GUESS... lol


Self Portrait in black and white colored pencils. This is apparently the face I make naturally, which made it easy to not change my face as I drew.


Skeleton still life in pastel.


(And the rest I'll post as thumbnails, because I could take up far too much space.)

Drapery in charcoal


Reproduction in pastels

I also made a dreamcatcher out of reclaimed materials (a bangle, broken earrings, etc.)


Flower hair clips.


Aaaand a necklace made from an old french book page and a circular piece of glass I found in a light fixture we were trashing. I was so excited to wear this today Cheesy


And that's "all" for now! ^.^

This was made from an old bangle and bits of broken earrings, along with some various beads and a wire circle for the middle. I'm actually really happy with it, especially since it's reclaimed materials!

Origami butterflies (pastel). This was a HUGE pain, but it was the first 100% I got!

Self portrait (Black and white colored pencil). This is just the face that requires no muscle effort, so I knew I wouldn't change my expression as I drew  Grin

I found 3 of these circular pieces of glass in some light fixtures we were trashing, and they were too cool to let go to waste. Then I found this old french book page at a local antique store and I just thought it was perfect. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. My boyfriend was even so sweet as to say it looked "professional," which honestly isn't saying much from him  Roll Eyes But as long as he (and I) liked it, that's good enough for me!
