81  Calvin and Hobbes above my couch in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 23, 2014 06:06:22 PM
Nothing fancy. Calvin and Hobbes display I rescued from the bookstore,a junk day frame I painted black, and wrapping paper background.

82  Goodwill Clock steampunked up a bit in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: March 23, 2014 05:29:16 PM
No before picture on this! Anyway, found a plain wall clock, with open cutouts around the frame.  I  took some old plastic gift cards, painted them green, then glued them to the back. Then the fun began!
Spaces are filled with watch movements, watch faces, keys, beads, charms, washers, bolts, a chunk of pyrite...you get the idea. Add a mechanical 'angel', and it's done.

84  Last mirror of 2013, a big one! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: December 21, 2013 11:11:46 AM
Hanging in my room,until the next craft show. It cost 7.00 from the Habitat ReStore, and was a shabby beige...rattan,maybe? I reattached the backing,and found a 1976 date. Spray painted it silver. Then,dug in the jewelry and beads.
For an idea of size.

Detail shots.

86  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.

87  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
Two small pendants, just playing around.One is an evergreen tree, so that's winter themed. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429407.0#axzz2mKsYovmW
A pair of geeky altered wall prints, which I like! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429406.0#axzz2mKsYovmW

89  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.

90  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.
