1  Re: 2014 DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by ChameleonHound on: May 24, 2014 09:29:30 PM
I did some de-stashing in a recent swap! After digging through my box of paint-able items, I found this tray that was begging to be decorated.

2  Dinosaur Tea Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ChameleonHound on: May 24, 2014 09:27:15 PM
Hi everyone!
This here's a tea tray I decorated for my partner in the "Use What You Have" Swap.

I used a combination of paint (the pink parts), and decoupaged tissue paper (gray) and book pages. The silhouette I drew on some fine art paper, cut out with an exacto knife, and mod-podged over the paint. And then it got heavily glittered, 'cause what's tea without dinosaurs and glitter?

Thanks for looking!

I made a hoop for a swap this month! It was more for my partner's guilty pleasures than my own, but I had fun making it anyway.

4  Lunar Mission Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by ChameleonHound on: May 23, 2014 05:09:06 PM
Hi all! I made this hoop recently for my partner in the "Use What You Have" Swap.
She mentioned liking space, american and glitter themes so I combined them!

I appliqued the moon surface on with interfacing and finished with a chain stitch, and the earth was just a patch I had around. The stars are fabric paint (glitter of course). I made the flag pole with a heavy braid chain stitch, for which I used this tutorial.

Here's some detail. The flag was done in a back-stitch with shiny thread, and I used satin stitch to fill the blue, and fabric paint for the stripes.

I actually like the way this came out; I didn't think I was going to. The stars were a little sloppy, but I had a hard time getting my brain around spacing 50 stars in a tiny box.  Huh

Anyway, thanks for looking!

Check out this cool collage card I got from CDEeeek for my found objects theme!

I love that I keep discovering things I hadn't noticed before! One of the little signs was detached, and I'm not sure where it goes so I haven't attached it yet.
I especially like "don't dawdle".  Smiley

7  Costa Rica Treasure Frame in CHALLENGE 98 ENTRIES by ChameleonHound on: May 04, 2014 03:00:05 PM
Hi All! Can I tempt you with an alluring beach photo? Wink

Sadly, this is a project that waited for almost 6 years for me to accomplish. In the Summer of '08 I worked for a sea turtle conservation group in Costa Rica. I spent a lot of time on the beach, and wanted a little bit to remember it by. So, I found a nice little glass bottle and filled it with some sand, pebbles, sea shells, and ocean water. Unfortunately, the folks in the baggage-handling areas of the airport were rough enough with my well-padded treasures that the bottle broke on the way home, and I was left with a baggie of soggy beach crumbs and bits of glass.  Cry

I wasn't sure what to do with it until I discovered this pin on shadow box picture frames. I got one of the photos I took that summer printed out at the pharmacy and mounted it in a shadow box frame I got at Michael's. Then I sifted the glass shards out of the sand, chose some shells and driftwood and seeds, and put it all together!

I'm pretty happy with it, and am definitely going to enjoy my little bit of Costa Rica now that I can have it on display! I especially like that I can tilt the box around and get a slightly different beach from time to time - a bit more like the real thing. Smiley

Here's a pic so you can see the photo a bit better. It's really hard to photograph a picture frame without getting a reflection!

Enjoy! Thanks for looking!

8  My first double-knit hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by ChameleonHound on: May 04, 2014 01:55:46 PM
Hi all! I recently learned how to double-knit (knit two layers at the same time) and I decided that it was necessary to make a hat. I had some leftover blue bamboo wool yarn, and a skein of something in beautiful colors that I found for 99c at the thrift store.
It took quite some time as I didn't really follow a pattern for the weight of yarn I had, and I had to take it out and adjust a few times especially around the decreases.


And so you can see the inside:

I suppose it could have been reversible, but I really wanted a tassel.  Grin
Thanks for looking!
