1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wood Bead Necklace w/ nail polish on: September 20, 2005 08:44:00 PM
Made this with some wood beads, thought it was too plain so I accented the colors with some nail polish.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Destroyed Jeans with Stencil on: September 20, 2005 08:40:29 PM
So I dug this pair of jeans out that I destoyed about a year ago. And wouldn't you know it that these are hot fashion now!! This was one of my first stencils, so it's a bit messy. Don't bite me.  Undecided It's a Banksy recreation, burgundy on top of gold. Added the little heart for balance, I think it's cute.

Comments? Suggestions on how it could be better? Let me know.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Button Skirt retro style! on: September 20, 2005 08:30:33 PM
I think I have a button obsession! Oh well, here is my mom's old skirt from the 80s that I embellished with some buttons. It's almost too loud to wear in public but I have no shame so I'll wear it anyway  Tongue

close up:

my favorite button is the red one:

Comments? Suggestions on how to make it better?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Destroyed Jeans with buttons a la Delia's on: September 18, 2005 08:44:08 PM
You charge how much for a pair of old raggedy ripped up jeans?!?! I don't think so.

So I made my own. Inspired by this pair I saw in a Delia's catalog:

My version:

I happen to prefer my version, actually.  Tongue

I added a few more beads after these pics were taken and ended up taking that metal chain off (it was making noises when I walked, plus I thought it was a bit overkill) but I'm too lazy to retake the pics. You get the picture, right?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Inspired by killer hobo scarf on: September 18, 2005 08:32:21 PM
I was inspired by this wonderful thread, one of the greatest scarves I have ever seen!


I made mine out of a blazer instead of pants. My attempts at learning how to knit have failed miserably, so I just knotted all the pieces together. I plan on embellishing it with some awesome gray and silver beads when i get the chance.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Embroidered/fabric sample appliqued Vintage Blazer on: September 14, 2005 06:03:07 PM
My boyfriend bought me this vintage blazer at a thrift store, and it fits great but was a little plain. Enter some of those wonderful fabric samples I got online!! This was my first embroidering venture and I think it turned out all right. I love these colors and textures for fall. The blue birds are suede. Still working on the back..




Let me know what you guys think! Smiley
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Arrested Development stencil on: September 09, 2005 04:53:20 PM
So I thought I'd immortalize one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite shows.
big old shirt

and then reconstructed:

on me:

I made this a million times harder than it had to be by painting the white after i had already done the stencil. i messed something up and that was the only way to fix it. oh well.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / pat benatar tote bag!!! - first post on: August 30, 2005 07:44:42 PM
i've been around for a few weeks, so i guess i'll finally post a few things i have made.!

i had this plain tote bag and pat benatar is one of my favorites, so i just had to immortalize her. this was my first multilayered attempt, and the canvas was kind of rough so there was some bleeding, but overall i am pretty pleased! i ended up hand painting a lot of the face for fear that i would screw it up with the stencil..

i later added a magnetic clasp, so i added some buttons to cover up its ugliness (the big yellow button in the middle is covering the metal clasp).

i think i liked it better without the buttons, but oh well - too late now!!

comments and constructive criticism are welcome!
