101  Femme Raygun wall piece in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bookstorebabe on: December 04, 2013 08:08:28 PM
I painted this ages ago. It was a fabric covered piece, with an oval glass painted insert and metal decorations. So, painted the fabric greenish, the glass shades of gold and brown, the frame highlighted,and the metal with brass. There it sat for months.
Finally got the bug to do something with it yesterday. The small green frame was from a thrifted shadowbox I disassembled,the woman's portrait from a coffee table book of wallpaper design I saved from the trash,added a tiny gear and rhinestone to her hair. Raygun is a water pistol, painted with airbrush color,nail polish, and acrylic paint. Added the last two rhinestones,the tip from an ink pen, a plastic screw piece, and an auto fuse to the raygun.  Since there is no glass over this, I wanted the raygun on hooks, but didn't have any. So, used some barrel glass beads topped with pearls from deconstructed jewelry. The message inside the little gold frame is, 'And they say diamonds are a girl's best friend!'  I showed it to my daughter, and she said 'THANK YOU for not making it pink!' Hee.

102  Time for a coffee break! Geek Style. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: December 04, 2013 07:44:56 PM
So,when digging through the bag of computer keyboard keys,I found a couple that said pause/break. I had a few small frames,but no appropriate scrapbook paper. I looked at the gift wrap aisle, the greeting cards,all over the dollar store. Then I thought to look in housewares. There were two coffee themed pot holders left,for a dollar each. Cut off the top fabric,get out the glue,and there you have it.



While I'm at it, here's a couple more,using home keys. I have just enough e's to make one more, maybe tomorrow.

Four mirrors,post here. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429402.0#axzz2mKsYovmW One of them uses blue, orange, and wooden beads, which is autumn to me. Makes me think of orange leaves against an October sky,love that color combo.
Five trinket/jewelry boxes. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429404.0#axzz2mKsYovmW

104  Two pendants in Beads: Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: December 02, 2013 01:15:45 PM
Just experimenting. A freeform bead and wire tree(loop on the back), and the other is a small green rock, a frame finding, a scrap of paper, wire, and jewelry sealant.

105  pair of geeky prints for a kid's room in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: December 02, 2013 01:09:33 PM
Moon and sun framed prints from Goodwill,originally bought for the frames. There were some paper elements glued over them I didn't like and removed, then removing the glue residue was interesting! Some of the color ended up removed, which I liked around the moon, but I colored in the yellow again. Cut out an earth,a few stars, and two rocketships from a scrap of wrapping paper. Originally I wanted to do something fun with small toy rocketships, but couldn't find any. Then, when I was sorting through my bag of computer keyboard keys, I found a 'wake' and a 'sleep' button, and remembered these prints.

106  A few trinket boxes in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: December 02, 2013 12:52:34 PM

Experimenting. Decoupaged a crumpled,painted paper towel on a box I painted purple.


Playing with stuff from the jewelry stash,the purpley goldish box color didn't photograph well.

Odd earring, and a lot of my odd tiny beads, painted box.

107  Four mirrors, very pic heavy! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: December 02, 2013 12:36:56 PM
This was an ornate frame from a thrift store. Two rows of gold chain,one row of pearl, four corner pieces from the stash. Two leaf earrings on the sides-there was the tiniest chip, and it hides it. And a mirror taken from a hand mirror.


This one took minutes to do. Wooden plate frame and green plate from the same thrift store trip, a mirror,rowof pearl beads,done!

This one took forever! Goodwill mirror, the clear with blue glass pebbles I'd had around forever, pearls, odd larger blue beads and a million seed beads at the top and bottom.



Another Goodwill mirror, can hang horizontally or vertically.I had a blue and an orange pair of necklaces in my stash that I wasn't going to wear,but I love those colors together. Took them apart for the beads, also used wooden beads, and any random blue/orange/brown beads I had, plus seed beads.

110  Triple Moon in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bookstorebabe on: November 14, 2013 05:09:56 PM
A piece of cherry cabinet from the Habitat Restore, almost all my broken chains,a few beads, a broken compact, a small mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree, a few charms and odd earrings, and iridescent glass tiles from the craft store. The dragonfly is from some clearanced metal garden decor, that I painted.

detail shots

The tiles are very iridescent in real life.

Little frog

I'll go over it again and fill in a couple of places a bit more. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
EDIT-putting a link to my inspiration here in the top post, I forgot to do that when I originally posted! I don't know her,but this artist makes cool stuff. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TUTreasures?ref=l2-shopheader-name
