Hee, bunny, I should start posting pics of all the stuff I've messed up! I can't sew or yarn or do decent stencils to save my life. Doesn't mean I won't keep trying. Cheesy
Anyways, my partner in the hippy swap received, so I'm going to do a photo dump.
Vase-funky bottle,a zillion pieces of purple envelopes, highlighted with silver and a little black, and a ton of sealer,

4  Bead Mosaic-what was going to be coasters evolved^_^ in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: July 25, 2014 05:35:01 AM
So, I picked up a few tiles from the Habitat Restore, and tried out the pour nail polish in a pail of water and dip them real quick technique. And fell in love with how they came out. Then decided they needed to be part of a piece of  art, instead.
Got a frame the right size from the Dollar Store, removed the glass, painted the artwork black for a background,replaced the glass, started messing with it.
It was originally going to have an underwater theme. but ended up random. I used almost every purple-ish bead I had, and a lot of gold, black, white, and clear to completely cover the space. Then poured on a LOT of sealer-I think that's a bottle and a half of jewelry sealer.
It theoretically could hang on the way, but it's a bit heavy. You'd just have to be careful to find a stud. Or it could just lay on a table.
So yeah-it's neither the coasters I was originally making,or the sea scene I vaguely envisioned,bt it came out okay anyway. ^_^
EDIT-Argh,it posted before the pics uploaded! Trying again!
Okay,it won't let me just upload my photos. And Craftster photo hosting isn't working at all. Let's try flickr.
Testing...

The swirly beads next to the black tile, bottom left? Made them years ago,with the plastic bottle marker heat them tutorial elsewhere on crafster. There's several scattered throughout this. And I had six small black tiles, so they're interspersed evenly around the border. And a broken necklace gave the row of tiny black beading at the edges.

Muses Mechanique!
Or, I had two last old disc drives to dissect, and a small stack of art postcards.


I have three done, another that should be done tonight,and that's all I can do unless I come across more old disc drives. ^_^  I'll do a post for them when I can hopefully take a decent set of pictures tomorrow.

Yet more rayguns! three on a rack,a pair on brass frames, and one on a plaque.

And rejiggered a couple of display stands by attaching cheap picture frames.

9  Raygun rack,ect. in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: June 08, 2014 06:47:49 AM
rayguns! I bought this long green metal rack for 1.00  (I love Goodwill), hoping I could adapt it to hold a rifle sized raygun. Nope, but it holds three small ones nicely! You can't see it,  but it has two small built in loops for hanging. I still need to get a plaque that says something like 'Home Sweet Home',or maybe 'Home Security System' or something to hang from it.



I had two fancy brass frames that I bought for cheap at a thrift store, so I did a matching pair of small rayguns for them.



This one is a work in progress. I found the wooden piece at Habitat ReStore for 1.00, stained it with a small bottle of burgundy color I picked up for a quarter, them did a raygun in blue and gold. It's not attached yet-I've bent some copper hanging tape for now, but it's not fastened down.

10  Display stands for craft show in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: June 08, 2014 06:03:43 AM
Don 't have a  before pic-I found a couple of ' capitol I'  wooden display pieces at Goodwill. Now, I always need more display height at my table, especially at the upcoming comicon since one table was all I could swing. These aren't bad, but the top area was too small. So I bought two 1.00 frames from Dollar Tree, took them apart, sprayed the backing so both sides were black, them centered it on the top of the stands. A line of e6000 glue and hammered in thumbtacks (painted black) hold it on securely. Then I slide the frame glass and frame itself back on. I have a wider display area, one that now has a lip around the edge to boot. Obviously this wouldn't do for anything heavy, but for lightweight stuff it's perfect.
