11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Knit Your Bit Roombox on: November 30, 2015 07:08:18 PM
This is a roombox I made from a wooden box I found at the dollar store. It's based on World War 2 propaganda posters, asking women to "knit their bit" for the soldiers. This room belongs to Hazel, an older woman with a husband and many family friends in Germany, fighting Hitler.

Both of my grandfathers were in the war, so this piece holds a special place for me.

12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Game of Thrones Dragon Egg on: May 20, 2015 09:17:57 PM

In April everyone else was decorating Easter Eggs. I decided to decorate Dragon Eggs a la Game of Thrones. Everything I used was from the dollar store - the base which was a "dinosaur egg", layered with scales cut out from kids craft foam. I added texture paste and painted it to try and mimic Khaleesi's green egg.

My husband was nice enough to pose with it to show scale.

The most time consuming aspect was cutting out all the dragon scales - not the most fun thing ever, but I just sat in front of the TV and did it.

13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / The Geeks Bedroom (Picture Heavy) on: May 06, 2015 02:33:44 PM
I'm a geek and so is my husband. I've created a roombox miniature of a geeks bedroom, more specifically - a comic book geek.

^ Bulletin board made from cork for a coaster, newsprint about super heroes, a schedule for the CKExpo (a comic con in my town), Harley poster from magazine that's been well used.

^ Candy wrappers

^ The name "stan" is etched into the dresser. Because I said so.

15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dinosauria - An Ancient Tome (photo heavy) on: March 27, 2015 05:45:41 PM
My husband has always been obsessed with dinosaurs and has had a certain book since he was a wee lad. The signatures were coming apart, the cover was no longer attached and the spine could no longer be read - so in my craft wisdom I decided to refinish it for him. Possibly for his birthday - possibly because I just love making prop books.

^ The book!

^The spine. I've freehanded the title "Dinosauria" Possibly not my best work, but I still like it.

^I sketched out the dino claw and then used hot glue to make it into a raised carving.

^I used my technique for making fake leather here...

^I used wallpaper as my inside pages...

^As you can see, the inside of the book is indeed a book on dino's - haha

^The back of the book - aged.

^A Better view of the spine...

So that's it! (He loves it, by the way Wink )

I'll be out of town without internet when partners are assigned, so if you get me for a partner, I'm not ignoring you, I promise! I'm adding to my Pinterest board "Down the Rabbit Hole" with Alice things I love, just in case. I'll be back in town at either the beginning or middle of next week.

Firstly - freaking awesome!
Secondly, where can I get the pattern?
Thirdly - Where in the world did you find that frame? (and how big is it)/ I'm trying to find something similar for a project I've finished.
