362  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another of my melted bead lampshades :) on: November 13, 2006 04:54:37 AM
Here's my first one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0

And here's my second!  Smiley  I used a few strands of valentine heart beads and then a mix of multi facet beads to fill the gaps.  It's taller than the first one, so you can't see the bulb from any angle this time - yay!

I LOVE the hue it casts on the wall.

363  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gorilla & electrical tape artist portfolio on: November 13, 2006 01:54:44 AM
I made this for my partner in a swap because she has lots of matted artwork & she wanted something to store 'em in.  Smiley

For the sides I used a sequined scarf & criss-crossed it with yarn just for extra support.

The flower design is from a purse on her Wists.
364  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beaded Eggshell decorations/ornaments on: November 13, 2006 01:46:14 AM
I made these for a swap.  My partner likes to make Christmas ornaments, so I made her some all-year-round ornaments; one decoupaged with floral because she loves yellow roses, the other with astrological stuff because she loves science. Smiley

365  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Edvard Munch, The Scream - Altered Book on: November 13, 2006 01:40:50 AM
I made this for a swap.  Smiley  One of her favorite paintings is Edvard Munch's, The Scream.  The concept was inspired by this gentleman's creations.

...the words say, "Lucky for me, we dream."

I didn't tear out the page 'cause I wasn't sure if she would want it framed or not.
I tied it with ribbon & a tag that said, "Turn to page 67."

366  Ohio / Ohio: Central / Engagement photos in Columbus? on: November 11, 2006 10:34:39 AM
Have any of you had yours done here?  If so, could you mention where?  I'm trying to make a list of possible places.. Smiley

We're getting married at Whetstone Park of Roses next summer.   Grin

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

369  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Tree Guestbook on: October 30, 2006 05:02:56 PM
I made this for Kittykill for her wedding this coming weekend!  Smiley  Their theme is Day of the Dead/Voodoo/Tiki - so, those typical white lace-covered books just wouldn't do justice!

Please don't think, "Wow.  You made her a dead tree.  How sweet!" 'cause it gets better, I swear!  Tongue

Instructions for the guests...

Acid free, archival ink... yay.

So I'm not responsible for burning her wedding down. Wink  They flicker just like flames...tee hee.

Hopefully once everyone has left their name or note to her & hubby, the whole tree will be full of leaves of love & wisdom.  Kiss  I hope they like it!
370  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Melted Bead "Leah" on: October 16, 2006 02:32:02 PM
I made this for our Craftster meetup over the weekend...  Instead of holding paper signs up at the airport, we held melted bead names.   Cheesy


Plastic pony beads (like these)
Metal baking sheet
Aluminum foil


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line baking sheet with foil.

Arrange beads into name, shape or whatever design you desire.

Carefully put pan into oven to bake.  If you move too quickly, you'll roll your beads around on the pan.  Take your time! Smiley

Bake until your piece is at your desired consistency.  The longer you bake, the flatter you piece will become.

Remove from oven and allow to thoroughly cool.

Peel piece from foil.

Display it!  Lean it on a shelf or hang it with fishing string from suction cups on a window. Smiley

Please use ventilation and caution when melting plastic beads.  Do not melt plastic around pets or children.
