Small, silly project. Kiddo needed flip flops. I bought a pair at the Dollar store for a buck. Annnd had just the thing in my craft stash to fancy them up.


Really, what can't be improved by googly eyes? I warned her they'd probably start falling off when she wears them, despite how well they're glued down. But I was told that was fine, then they'd be zombie flip flops.
My kid is weird.  Grin

My swap package has been received! She took great pics, so I'll link to her post. Superhero and comic fans swap.

I did a Kabuki collage on the cover of a nice blank book. Two necklaces-one has the characters from Appleseed, the other has Wonder Woman on one side, and a young Rose Red on the other. Wonder Woman barrettes, and a small box I made from a packing tape roll, an ebook cover. A few comic books, and a handkerchief purse that didn't turn out as well as it could have.
Here's a couple of pics. Young Rose Red is saying, 'if anything tried to hurt me, I'd chop it up with a sword!'

sheepblue, I love it all! Very cool.
And, nice job on the bags, texscrapper! I bought a couple of burlap coffee sacks from my local coffee shop to do something with ages ago. One of these days!

Okay, I made some more raygun shadowboxes. I neglected to take a pic of the one with the miniature pistols before I sold it, dang it! But I have pics of two others.

Not the best pics, I took them at the convention, but they'll do. ^^

124  Two more raygun shadowboxes in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: April 14, 2013 10:17:47 AM
Okay, not the best pic because of the glare, but here's one.

Both painted in shades of blue, copper, brown, and green, both doodaded up with small extras-metal bits, jewelry bits, ect. Painted the background ivory, and used a piece of reproduction wallpaper that went with the frame. I lucked into a coffee table book of wallpaper patterns, that was going to be discarded due to damage. Normally I wouldn't cut up a book, but again-damaged and saved from being discarded. The frame was from the Goodwill, and I have a matching one awaiting its turn. I took it apart, removed and discarded the inside (ugly paper mache type flower), and moved the picture hanger so it would hang horizontally instead of vertically.
Here's the other.

Had to buy a craft store shadowbox to have something deep enough to hold this water pistol. Blue and brass, metal bits-found pieces and part of a broken watch. Metal frame has the usual message of 'in case of space pirates, break glass.' Background from my paper stash. I used to work at a bookstore, and sometimes publishers sent us advance copies, posters, ect. Picture books we sometimes got just some folded pages, not the whole book. These were usually thrown away, but I rescued some! I like to just paint backgrounds, too, but this one went so well with the colors I painted the gun
I wish I had a picture of the other one I did! I thought I'd taken pics of everything before I set up at the scifi con, but of course the one I missed is one I sold. I used three tiny keyring sized guns. Ah, well!

125  Chokers and a display for the craft show in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: April 08, 2013 07:22:46 PM
Display and chokers! The green one is an older one, the others new. Bought the white crochet from the craft store-they were too big for bracelets and too small for chokers. They came with the fabric ends encased in ribbon clips, and a little bit of silver chain and a clasp. I added more chain to make them choker size, and put pendants on each one. Fan, heart, mother of pearl bead with dangle, odd fancy silver dangly earrings. At the last minute I realized I had no display. Took an old stretch velvet pullover, cut off the sleeve. Pulled it over a roll of paper towels. Knotted each end, stuffed them inside. Had a couple of ceramic drawer pulls I bought on clearance for 50 cents, pushed those in to make sure the sleeve ends stayed tucked inside and to make it look neater. I didn't even have to use pins to hold the chokers in place-the paper towel roll compressed a bit when I fastened the chokers, and uncompressed after, if that makes sense.

Oh, nifty! I bet those are comfy undies! Cute shirt, too. And I bet your nieces are thrilled with the doll clothes. The Thingamabob is cool-I like the technical name. Grin The ribbon and sparkly ornaments are a nice touch on the cross stitch.

Okay, I made some circuit board and transistor jewelry. Post here.

128  geeky circuit board jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 30, 2013 12:20:49 PM
Not the best pics, my camera is dying! Probably need to replace it soon.
Bought a few baggies of the rings at the thrift store. Circuit board from dead electronics my nephew gave me. The coppery foil printed circuit board had to be used! Only a little of that, sigh. Long brass piece was from a key ring, the black/green/brass beads don't show up well in this pic. The big pendant has a wash of gold on it-I made a similar one earlier.
 
Three pins from transistors. Or capacitors? Something!

Blurry picture of pins/brooches. Beads, rhinestones, brass flowers, ect.

Another pendant shot. Still need to put them on chains, cord, or ribbon.

kaz, I like that! It's a nifty piece of art.

I made 31 more key pins, used up all my keys!

130  31 key brooches, used up my stash! Pic heavy in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 17, 2013 04:42:27 PM
I have used up all my keys, had to buy pin backs and more e6000, and even some charm embellishments on sale from the craft store because my supply of suitable ones got low. Old keys, new embellishments, old jewelry, dollar  jewelry for filigree, bead stash. For my sale table at the con in a couple of weeks.






and obligatory group shot.
