1  A couple ATCs that I made... in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by bluejeandreams on: December 28, 2009 10:17:18 AM
They aren't very good, I am afraid. I was just goofing off the day that I made them. I have made better, but I don't have any pictures of those right now.  I need to go on a photo taking spree and take pictures of everything I have made!!!







Thanks for looking!!!

2  Beaded Mosaic plaques...What do you think?! Lots of pics!!! in Beads: Completed Projects by bluejeandreams on: December 28, 2009 10:06:03 AM
Just some of my beaded mosaic thingies I have done lately...















Seeing it this close I realize I need to repaint the letters.  You can still see black on a few of them.   Sad




Thanks for looking and any input would be appreciated!

3  Photo tent photos...need input please! w/pics & instructions on how I made it! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bluejeandreams on: December 27, 2009 06:03:30 AM
I finally broke down and made a photo tent.  I actually made two-a big one and a little one, but so far only have had success with the little one.  I just grabbed random things to test it out so ignore what the pictures are of.  I would love c&c!  I think they look decent, but I am also on a netbook and maybe they are not.  I noticed that I really should have brushed off the lens cap before trying to take a picture...
Anyways, here are the pictures!  I plan on taking pictures of actual projects and will post links to those too.
Thanks!!


Here is one I lightened...


Here are few more that I took last night.  I really like the one with the rocks.  (Random things, remember?!)






Here are the pictures of my 'photo tent' even though it is really a box!  This one shows the whole thing with the lights in place.  

This one is just one of the lights.  I got them at Walmart for $5 or $6.  The two lights were the only things I bought for this project.  I had everything else...

This shows the inside of the box.  

It is not the prettiest thing to look at, but it gets the job done.  I did have to mess with my camera's setting to take the pictures.  It just wasn't working on the auto setting.

So here is what I did...
I took an empty box and just cut squared out of the top, and two sides.  I then taped white paper over the holes.  (I did have the paper taped on the outside, but I then moved the paper to the inside.)  I then cut a piece of poster board to fit inside the box to curve inside the box.  Added the lights.  I have tried it with one light on the side and one light on top and I think that works the best, but have also put a light on each side.  I even have held on in the front and that works ok too.  Basically that is it on the instructions.  Like I said before, just google 'photo tents' and there will be lots of information too.  I wanted to make one with PVC pipe, but no money to buy it with right now!  
Thanks for looking and input!!

4  Some of my attempts at bracelets and other things...Image heavy. in Beads: Completed Projects by bluejeandreams on: October 07, 2009 11:40:42 AM
Just some things I have made lately.  Ironically I don't even wear jewelry!
First paper bead creations.


Woven bracelets that were fun to make, but don't fasten quite right.


A macrame keychain and bracelet with paper beads.


Beaded hair clips.  I can't even wear those because I have baby fine hair and they won't stay in!


A bracelet made with seed beads.  I got the idea from someone on here, but don't remember where.


Same bracelet--different pose.


Another bracelet using same technique.


Anyways, what do you think?

6  My First Post of a 'Believe' beaded thingie... in Beads: Completed Projects by bluejeandreams on: September 26, 2009 06:48:45 AM
Hi, I made this back in the spring.  It's just a piece of balsa wood (I think)  with seed beads spelling out "Believe".  It took a lot of time--now I just don't know what to do with it...
C&C welcome!
