2  Necklace display and altered bottles in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: May 06, 2015 11:50:56 AM
Four sides, each a double layer of foam board attached with aluminum tape. Sprayed the whole thing blue, and used fancy wrapping paper on the edges to hide the messy joins. I stuck a bunch of push pins into a scrap piece of foam and sprayed them the same blue, and I cut a square to cover the top. It sits on a lazy susan from the thrift store.  And once I'd loaded it with necklaces, I wrapped the whole thing in saran wrap for transport! It worked, but I think I need a cross piece, an x, top and bottom for extra stability inside.

Bottles! I've made a few for craft swaps over the years, but the recent altered bottle contest got me back into it.
These aren't the best pictures, but some have sold and the rest are packed away right now. I've used paint and old jewelry and washers and random stuff for the lids. The dragons and butterflies are temporary tattoos from the dollar store, well sealed, over spray paint. The butterfly bottle-also tattoos, but the bottle was both spray and hand painted, mottled shades of gold and rust for an aged look. The little bottles with the raised leaves are mini glass apple juice bottles, and more shimmery in person. A base layer of spray paint, and lots of hand painting over that. And I love Krylon triple thick spray sealer. I'm working on some fancier bottles now.

4  Recycled scrapbook pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 24, 2015 09:09:22 PM
DSCN1059 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr
I had a sheet of travel theme scrapbook embellishments. So, I used a variety of odd hoop earrings and bangle bracelets and a curtain ring, I put the embellishments on scrapbook paper-on partial scraps I needed to use up. Backed it with thin cardboard from packages, backed that with fabric from scraps. Coated the paper with diamond glaze to make it a little water resistant. Put an eye pin between the layers for hanging. And used old necklace chain pieces to make the edge look better. I should've taken a pic of the fabric backs, it was just so it'd be more comfortable to wear but it looked pretty. But my daughter snagged half of them when she was home to  bring back for her friends plus one for her, so I was lucky to get a pic snapped at all! Add a jump ring to the eye pin and they're necklace pendants, kiddo is thinking maybe ornaments instead, or glue a magnet on the back.
Nothing fancy, but I used up scraps!

Random bits glued on from bead and broken jewelry and random stuff stash-I think I used a tiny fuse and the point of an ink pen-and lots of skinny beads on 'MO'.

What could be more romantic than chocolates and a raygun? The vintage valentine covered the whitman's name nicely. Has a hanger on the back.

9  From bath salts to vases! in CHALLENGE 107 ENTRIES by bookstorebabe on: March 09, 2015 04:02:32 PM
This was from an old drugstore basket of bath products, and I saved the glass bottles and bamboo tray to do something with 'someday'.  So, I painted the clear bottles with lots of green and gold, and I kept the labels, because they were pretty. The bottles are painted inside and out, I wanted depth.  I had two matching metal flower charms, and a third from a broken earring that was close enough! I E600'd them to the front, over the 'green tea bath' writing. ^_^ I removed the corks because I like them as vases. I think they'd look perfect with some lucky bamboo.

10  Re: Fiber/Mixed Media Jewelry Swap, SU by 1/14, SO by 2/28 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by bookstorebabe on: January 01, 2015 11:57:08 AM
It's been a long time since I've made mixed media jewelry, with or without fabric! But I found a couple ofpics of some older stuff.
This pin was in sad shape,the metal was worn and gnarly looking, so I painted it purple, and made a fan out of lace, and replaced missing rhinestones with pearl beads.

I sold this one and then wished I'd kept it! Paint and beads and collage, the only fiber is the green leather wrapped around the frame.
