1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Under the sea matchbox shrine on: September 04, 2013 10:34:47 PM
Hi all,

I am trying to finish this shrine and I'm having trouble coming up with what else I should put in it. As you can see from the picture I have some shells and a message in a bottle. Any ideas what else? I thought of fish, but I don't know how they would look with the octopus  Undecided

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Hair Clips on: December 21, 2011 03:10:36 PM
I bought the purple orchids at Claire's for an absurd amount of money knowing I could make it myself, but needed them that night.  So, the days following I did just that.  Basically, I completely take the silk flowers apart and hot glue each layer back together.  Then I glue the leaves on the other side of the clip since the glue doesn't adhere to the metal and I'm too impatient to wait for a glue that would  Wink  Anyway, super easy and fun to make.  Also, the yellow daisies are painted with yellow glitter fabric paint just because I love sparkles!
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Thanksgiving Place Card Holders on: December 21, 2011 02:59:47 PM
These are pumpkin place card holders that I made for Thanksgiving dinner.  They are made of white clay then painted with a yellow tinted gesso.  Next I dry brushed them and painted the cracks with gold acrylic.  Lastly, I curled some gold wire around a pencil to make the loops and pushed them in the pumpkins.  It might not come across in the photos, but they ended up having a pearl-like antique look.  I am very pleased with how they turned out and I got tons of compliments.  There were nine of us at dinner and I only had time to make that many, but I plan on making an even dozen sometime in the future.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / What to do with polymer clay in a warm car? on: April 19, 2010 08:38:42 PM
I searched for an existing post and couldn't find one, so if this is redundant, Mods, please do with this post what you will.  I live in Arizona and the last couple of months here have been warm.  About three weeks ago, I thought my clay would be alright in my car, but after a little over a day most of it got a little crumbly.  I know it's not cured, but a lot of it doesn't seem very workable.  Will it be OK to work with, or will I have to replace the crumblier colors?  I really should have known better, but it really didn't seem that warm, at least not to me Smiley
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Tommy Gun Purse for Halloween on: October 01, 2009 07:50:26 PM
Hi Everyone,

I'm going to be a 1920's gangster for Halloween and I wanted to get a toy Tommy gun to carry around, but I'll also need my purse.  I came up with the idea to fashion a purse out of a toy gun, but the logistics are a little shaky.  Then genius struck and I thought why not make a Tommy gun shaped purse.  However, I have no experience in purse making, nor am I too handy on a sewing machine.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can accomplish this project?

Thanks in advance!
