112  Leaf Box in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: November 01, 2013 12:24:22 PM
Started as a battered wooden bible box from the thrift store.

The sides have a daubed on layer of black screenprinting ink, and then some antique gold rub n'buff. Screenprinting ink takes a few days to dry, but it's just perfec for some things. 

The inside is scrapbook paper,flocked ribbon, and a little more gold rub and buff.

Leaf close up.

Real leaves,foil,rub n' buff, spray paint, three shades of luminere acrylic paint, and glaze. And old gift cards. ^^

114  Steampunkish butterfly mirror. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 31, 2013 07:46:39 PM
Steampunkish butterfly mirror. A ceiling medallion I painted, a few rows of chain, a Dollar Tree mirror, and a butterfly. The butterfly was from some brightly colored metal garden decor vastly marked down at Dollar general.I painted it and added a few red glass beads. Just needs a hanger.

116  A couple of raygun shadowboxes in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:29:28 PM
I needed a break from making mirrors, so whipped up a couple of these.  Grin I love buying cheap shadowboxes at the thrift store to take apart!

Can't really see any detail here, but there's metal bits added for a trigger, a metal cap on the nozzle, and a green brad at the end. Silver, white,and purple paint on a tiny water pistol from a pack of party favors, scrapbook paper, and a thrift store frame, and the word 'Imagine'. Most of my shadowboxes are 'in case of airship pirates/space pirates break glass, but I wanted to make a few different ones.

Second shadowbox! An old earring, a tiny key, a copper coil, the green bulb is from electronic innards, a disc, a pointy bit of plastic. Scrapbook paper and thrift store frame. The label-printed, cutout,glued on cardboard,wrapped in some twisted thin yarn from a tassel. The green leaves? From a sheet of temporary tattoos.

117  Something simple in Beads: Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:17:03 PM
I bought a humongous pair of hoop earrings just for the pretty iridescent beads. Took them apart,strung them on a thin gold chain.

batteries acquired! There  were 3 bags chock full of goodies!

First bad, tons of beads. Including some very nifty hand made pottery ones!

Second bag, supplies! Spools of wire,lots of chain,charms,jump rings and other findings,ect.

Third bag, jewelry! Lots of necklaces,earrings,ect. This pic came out blurry, but this is nifty stuff.

Thank you again, tendstowardschaos. I feel very spoiled, and it's exciting thinking of what to make using my new supplies.

Oh,what a pretty shawl!

Okay, I made two more mirrors, what a shock. Grin And another small compact. And two ring holders. Which I messed up,but I'm using them anyway.

120  Black & brown mirrors,and how not to make ring holders in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 21, 2013 01:26:51 PM
Mirrors! Found a brown ceramic plate/tray,fit an octagonal mirror inside,and beads in the corners.

I think that was worth fifty cents, don't you?

Then,I bought a frame on clearance for 2.50 at Dollar General. Removed the glass. The fancy embossed mat was a dark grey plastic. Lots of rub n'buff, then paint, then sealer.

More beads from the multistrand necklace I used in the blue mirroe.

The mirror is one of these, frame painted black. Locker mirror,one dollar.

And another compact. I should have just used the swan and left the background black.

So, I picked up some small frames from the thrift store to make ring holders. Found the perfect scrapbook paper for each of them,was smug at how easy they went together. The little ceramic frame I promptly dropped the second I finished it, and cracked the frame in four places. The green frame-I brushed sealer over the paper,since it'd be going by the sink. The paper promptly buckled. I tried to smooth it back down right away, and tore a hunk off. That's why there's a flat gold bead there.

Ah,well. One's in the bathroom,the other in the kitchen. Next time will be better!
