I bought this book and Jean Railla's Get Crafty book, and I enjoyed this book a lot more (maybe because Railla's book is sort of a manifesto-memoir).
Starving Artist doesn't have a lot of pictures, unfortunately, but I think it has lots of cool ideas. The only thing from it that I've made so far are the dada picture frames, which are extremely easy and don't require any tools or mechanical skill. The book has lots of good ideas and also puts me in a creative mode whenever I look at it. I'll probably use more of the ideas in it as soon as I have some more time.
I tried to decoupage a fake-o plastic-leather belt I got at Wal-Mart, and it was looking really good...until it dried. The paper cracked and creased and the belt was so stiff and hard to bend. I ended up just making a belt from scratch with clear tape and some d-rings because it was a lot easier.
Has anyone managed to successfully decoupage a belt yet?
I've been trying to decoupage some comic book images onto a plain canvas bag (using Mod Podge Fabric), but it doesn't really secure properly, and it's so stiff. Has anyone successfully mod podged fabric before?
I found this on the Container Store website. It's snag-proof and can hold a ton of scarves, and it's cheap. I tried to think of a way to craft it, but just gave up and bought it because I didn't know if I could do it without having scratchy parts that would mess up some of my already-messed-up scarves. I like the idea with the shower rings, too!
