Some little kids are going to be very happy to get those cute and cozy hats!
That was a very fun care package, I bet it brought a smile to their face.
Finally have a little something to post. Two atcs, for an off forum swap, and yes, another raygun.  Grin


Since I don't draw, I went for abstract. paper towel, paint, glitter, metal charms, and definitions cut from a ratty dictionary-mystery, remarkable,fortuitous, flourish.

4  Ray guns I made for a children's book kickstarter! in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: January 18, 2016 09:05:07 AM
So, some of you know I make rayguns, and go to the local geek conventions. One year I met an artist/writer, who bought one for his son, and we'd talk every year. This year he commissioned me to make one that the character in his new book would use against the villain, and he loved it. Then he asked for ones to offer as kickstarter rewards!
It's a cute book, Space Rover protecting the innocent from the evil Dark Shark.

Anyway, here's pics of what I made.
Group shot of the arsenal!

His main weapon, the Light ray blaster! I'd forgotten to take pictures, and had to grab a quick one when I gave it to him. Hee, he geeked out and said how amazing it was for him to see something he'd imagined become a physical object he could hold, and I told him it was amazing to me to see something I'd made take life as a drawing.

The individual ones from the arsenal.

5  Dave Carter song inspired mosaic-y piece in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bookstorebabe on: September 22, 2015 06:09:22 PM
So, here's two links to the song, 'When I Go.' The first is from a live performance, and has a cool intro, the second, a montage of images and it's a bit shorter.

I got on a Dave Carter/Tracy Grammer kick, and this song just struck me. I had an umbrella stand I'd bought from Goodwill for use as a display for canes at craft shows, and it fell apart after one use. But then I saw how much the top piece looked liked a rising sun, and off I went.
Tons of beads, deconstructed jewelry, broken chain, mardi gras beads, recycled cardboard,four shades of gold over the cheap brass. The wooden base, painted over art from thrift store. Two close shades of blue. A metric ton of E6000, nails, and metal tape.

in progress

close ups

the particular verse. Yeah, I have a little excess sealer to clean up!, rther than something



I'm going to be hanging it in the church art gallery soon.  I indulged myself making something I wanted to, rather than something more generic that would be easier to sell.  Heck, I'll hang it up at home later.
here's the verse, that image is a bit hard to read!
"and when the sun comes trumpets from his red house in the east
he will find a standin stone where long i chanted my release
he will send his mornin messenger to strike the hammer blow
and i will crumble down uncountable in showers of crimson rubies when i go"

6  Re: Givers and Needers Swap Round 13 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by bookstorebabe on: August 23, 2015 06:04:44 AM
I got goodies from  mom2em!

Brushes, beading wire, beads, jewelry findings, jump rings. The bails are going to be especially useful! The container of pink microbeads came open during shipping, but I saved most of them.  It's a lovely stash of supplies, and I'm looking forward to using them. Thanks, mom2em!

8  Two comic book clocks in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: July 23, 2015 08:17:17 AM
Had two wall clocks, dollar general clearance for 1.00 last year, and comic books.
Wonder Woman!

Speed Racer! This one is a bit sloppy, I messed up gluing it in place and sealing it, and tried to paint over where the paper got messed up. Instead of starting over with something else, which would have been easier.

9  Three new rayguns in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: July 23, 2015 08:11:51 AM
DSCN1200 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr
That was a cheap wooden trivit from walmart, painted to hopefully look like a moon, and a fancy space blaster.

DSCN1203 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr
this one's made of lots of odds and ends! an ornament, a napkin ring, part of a wind chime thingy, the water reservoir of a toy water rifle, random bits and pieces. Experiment piece.

DSCN1201 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr
Just a big old water gun all painted up. Amazingly enough, it still works.

10  Avengers mirror and wall sconce mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: July 22, 2015 01:34:43 PM
Goodwill mirrored wall sconce. I had a booklet with kimono patterned wrapping paper, so decoupage, and then a gold chain around the mirror.
DSCN1210 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr
This one was an experiment, and a real pain. Painted a thrift store mirror white, used Avengers tattoos. Tip-if a kid slaps them on their arm, they're temporary tattoos, if an adult uses them in a project, they're 'water slide decals'. Same thing! Anyway, it looked like I'd just stuck stickers on the frame. I tried adding a blue outer and red inner border, still yuk. So I dabbed on layers of paint. Two different golds, white, black, and brown, and highlit/blended a little gold/white around the avengers. Helped some.
