2  Pretty hunk of circuit board in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 15, 2014 10:47:19 AM
Seriously. All copper instead of the usual green. I had to do something with it. So, I took apart a multi strand necklace that had beads in clear,amber, black,gold, and iridescent. Two strands were affixed top and bottom,and loose beads were placed on the board itself where the tiny openings were. The frame is a frankenframe I put together. The frame itself was a cheap white framed mirror-I removed the mirror,it just had a thin cardboard backing that was falling apart. The now empty frame was painted black,then rub n buffed copper. The black backing is from a cheap High School Musical shadowbox. It was just the right size. Circuit board was nestled in a diy cardboard frame I cobbled together with tape and glue and paint, then a ton of good old E6000 to affix it to the background.
Yeah, kind of odd, I know, but I like it. I just wish I had more copper circuit board of any size now. Cheesy
the color is nicer in real life!

Teeny cap gun key chains from the Dollar Store, and tiny frames and a plaque from various thrifting trips, scrapbook paper,paint, and rub 'n buff. I love the skull that was embossed on the hilt of the piratey  one and had to silver it and bring it out.

aw,hippo! And I love the colors on those mittens.
The reading hoop is adorable.
Tried something new! Buttercup squash with apple. It was okay, but not worth making twice.

Four different mini rocketships set in a set of old coasters,here. I screwed up and the paper wrinkled a bit, next time I think I use rubber cement.

9  Superman lamp,pic heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 03, 2014 07:51:21 AM
Thrift store lamp,takes a teardrop 60 watt bulb. Lampshade I already had-I meticulously painted my daughter's ball lamp to be a Bob-omb lamp, then found out the lamp no longer worked! So, I salvaged the lampshade. Grr.
Anyway! Shade painted black, Between the small bulb and the painted shade, this is not a light up a dark room or do homework by it lamp. But it looks cool. The Superman pages were from a beat up children's book. Glued down, and the whole thing covered with brush on clear sealer. The lamp was originally a tired brassy color and maroon, I painted it black and gold.

Do kids even know what a phone booth is anymore? Up,Up,and Away!

Clark Kent hears a cry for help! Oh no, a bank robbery!

Time to rip off the shirt and take to the sky! And what kind of white shirt does he have that the bright blue and red long johns don't show through? Does he hid his cape under that shirt too?

Does he wear those red boots to the Daily Planet?

Cowed by his super might as well as his fashion sense,the bank robbers wisely surrender.

One more pic.


The next lamp,I bite the bullet and go out and make color photocopies of my comic pages. I've found out that nothing keeps the printing on the reverse of the page from showing through-not gluing it to white paper, or black paper, or painting the back,or brushing on a base coat of mod podge/white glue. Here, with the shade itself black, it works fine-plus, these aren't thin comic book pages, but pages from a battered book.
