1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Keyboard Art: Part 2 on: April 18, 2015 04:12:26 PM
I've been wondering what to do with these bases for a while. I used all the keys on other projects and didn't want to just throw away the rest when I was done with it. I hate waste! Then I realised they would make really cool frames....  Smiley

and another that my friend made, we had a bit of a crafty night Smiley
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Skull art made from recycled keyboards on: April 09, 2015 12:45:48 PM
Here's a picture I have been making from various colour keyboard keys. I filled the gaps with epoxy resin, but it took ages to dry (like six months!  Shocked ) so I guess I used the wrong type!

Now I just need to figure out a cool way to frame it. Any suggestions?

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Car scrapyards on: July 05, 2014 02:23:27 PM
Hi everyone, I went to the scrappys today to get some new wheels for my car and I was wondering what parts usually get wasted? I know the frame usually goes to get crushed after being stripped down. I've seen some great things done with seatbelts. Obviously I'd need quite a few to make something, anyone ever got seatbelts from the scrappy before? How much did you pay? Also what's the cheapest art supply you've ever got from a scrapyard?
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Found object necklace on: June 20, 2014 12:55:40 PM
I've been wanting to try out jewelry making for quite some time now and I absolutely adore found object jewelry. Not only is it quirky and unique, I'm constantly hoarding away little trinkets that I find.

So here is my first attempt. The broken key had been on my keyring for years because I loved the weathered effect and it was the key to my first shop so it had a nice memory.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag from neckties on: June 20, 2014 12:49:32 PM
Here is a bag I made from neckties. Completely lined with inside pockets and a zip fastening.

Even the straps are ties Smiley

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag from Suit Jacket and Neck Ties on: June 20, 2014 12:42:59 PM
Here's another bag I have made, this time using a suit jacket and neckties. The strap is made from the legs of an old pair of jeans.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sleeveless suit jacket on: June 20, 2014 12:37:14 PM
In preparation for the warmer weather I've started removing the sleeves from the new jackets. What do you guys think?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Upcycled Inflatable Pool 2 on: January 17, 2014 04:59:02 PM
I posted a while ago with a bag I upcycled from an inflatable pool. I still had lots of pool left so after digging through my supplies tonight, I needed a clear out so I made another Smiley The rings are curtain rings Smiley

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Green Devil Jackets on: May 15, 2013 04:04:03 PM
Sometime last year I found a tweed jacket in a charity shop and decided to customise it. I added studs and used spray paint and heat press vinyl to create a big back piece design. My friends absolutely loved it and said I should make more, so in my spare time I did. I picked up a few jackets when I visited charity shops and markets and made a few designs.

I decided to give them the brand name "Green Devil" as upcycling and customising things to keep them from landfill has always been a passion of mine. I am a Green Devil!

 I'm so happy that people like my designs.

I'd love to hear what you guys think.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New bag from inflatable swimming pool on: June 10, 2012 11:10:32 AM
When my inflatable pool got punctured after just one summer it seemed a shame to throw it away. I had an old bag that was falling apart so I salvaged the zipper and strap and created a new bag from the parts. I lined it with my favourite shirt that ripped last weekend and I'm really happy with the result Smiley

And I still have loooooads of the pool left to play with, so I plan to make a few more Smiley
