I love it. The metal part of a makeup container-something else not to throw out.Smart idea.We craftsters must have the least garbage of anyone on the planet.Yay for inventiveness! It's a lovely necklace.

Thanks for the kind words.Sorry I don't know what the metal piece is-I scavenged it from the parking lot of a Goodyear automotive near where I work. Maybe if you looked at an auto supply place?The DH doesn't have a clue either. If I find out,I'll post right away.

How about recycled holiday decorations? halloween's obvious,but thanksgiving and christmas are right around the corner.Use stuff that would normally be trashed,and your imagination to make ornaments,ect.,instead of buying new.
2354  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Acrylic paint on a mug? on: October 01, 2007 05:58:51 PM
The woman at the art supply shop said I could use acrylic paint on plastic.I have a big mug I'd like to stencil.Should I seal it also? With what?I know it definetely wouldn't be dishwasher safe,but do you think it would hold up to handwashing? Of course,I won't paint around the rim.Has anyone done anything like this? I guess it could always be used for pencils or a flowerpot,but I'd like it to be used as a mug if I can.
If you see this Alana,you still don't know just how else I'm decorating it,or the nifty things I'm planning to fill it with,bwah ha ha.
Any crafty advise deeply appreciated!

What if you glued something to the back,like sheer net or cheesecloth first? I've never used sheets of fusible webbing/fabric stabilizer,but might they work? Do that,then spray both sides with paint.It hopefully will be enough to catch the paint,and barely there enough to show the screen pattern.
I'm curious about your project now-I'd love to see it.

I think I first saw this in the Readymade book.For your wall-empty cd jewel cases,You cut your poster,whatever,into squares to fit each,and hung them up together.However many rows across and down it takes.I can't describe it well,but it was a neat effect. Maybe buy a music/guitar magazine just to cut up? You can get old record albums cheap,the sleeves make good decor.A windchime made of guitar strings and guitar picks? The strings could hang from a shiny cd.Get an old album-put a picture of your boyfriend or his band in the center,hang it up like a framed picture-or make a new center label for it,featuring your boyfriend.Carefully wrap a big sheet of paper over and around a guitar,tape the paper to itself on the back to hold it in place,and do a pencil rubbing.Maybe add a few details,cut out your life size guitar rubbing and hang it up.Have fun!

I've heard you can put a bag over it with a ripe apple-the ethyline gas encourages ripening.Try that on one plant maybe? Never tried it;just heard about it.
2360  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Uhh... 400 unused Chinese takeout boxes ? on: September 27, 2007 11:02:56 AM
I know once on craftster I found a recipe for fortune cookies-thought I saved it,but I can't find it now. Why not offer to swap some of them? Put a note in your signature.Are these the regular size boxes your dinner would come in,or the smaller ones that are used for the rice?
