31  His and Hers rayguns, and one more dice sign in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: November 07, 2014 08:55:31 PM

The rayguns hang on a chain, so if someone wanted to take them down and go 'pew!pew!' they could. ^_^ Scrapbook paper has lines from a love letter, the heart was a pink plastic disney princess pool gem, and the plaque itself was a thrifted find. Experimenting with a different color palette, since I had some tubes of acrylics from a craft kit-clearanced,need you ask? Grin


And I had one more small plaque, so one last dice sign.

32  Lots of geeky ornaments in Winter Holidays by bookstorebabe on: November 07, 2014 08:39:38 PM
Some steampunky, all geeky. ^_^ I've been making ornaments and magnets and maybe pendants to have some smaller things for the table. Here's the ornaments!
Tiny rayguns! 15 of them. They were sold in bags of six as party favors at dollar tree, and the ones around me don't carry them anymore, bah.
Painted with a mix of acrylic paint, and nail polish, clear sealer, and made a hole with a push pin to add a hanger.


Glass ornaments clearance from last year. spray painted gold and a little black,downloaded gear images, and there's a tiny bit of gold paint in the clear sealer.

Three zeppelins, from a set of three at the thrift store. Painted, added propellers, and used the good old pushpin to make a place for a hanger.

and a simple frame to mirror revamp,here-http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436486.0



The bit of wooden trim under the cup is from a mirror I saved from the junk pick up.I remembered to take a before picture for once!

Still in process. I gently pried off what was left of the crumbling trim at the top. The pretty frame detailing was riddled with hairline cracks, so I filled them in and painted over them, and have sorted out some beads for the top.That's as far as I've gotten, I hope to get to work on it tomorrow.

34  Old frame to mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 30, 2014 05:39:26 PM
Vintage frame from the thrift store. Plain black, heavy, the kind that has a stand in the back instead of a hanging one. The paint had kind of a wavy,bubbled texture, so cue the gold rub 'n buff. The mirror is from a small terrarium-also from the thrift store!-that I took apart. A yep, thrifted black beaded necklace was cut in two pieces and edges the left and right of the mirror.

35  Snowflakes and keys in Winter Holidays by bookstorebabe on: October 30, 2014 05:33:24 PM
Pretty simple. Dollar store snowflakes, sealed to keep the glitter in check, Removed the tiny fake jingle bell and added a key, and added a blue shiny to the front and back of each key.

39  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.
