11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A BFG, and 6 more rayguns on: April 20, 2014 08:19:23 PM
The BFG from a broken nerf vulcan. had fun adding bits to it-the end piece on the muzzle is a broken cup holder!  There's my kiddo's old spy watch, a scope from a different toy pistol,ect ect.


The Neptunian Blaster.

Another nerf gun, hanging on a silver thingy from the thrift shop.

A huge, heavy shadowbox from the Habitat Restore, which fit perfectly into a metal stand from Goodwill.
The usual 'In case of airship pirates, break glass'.

Another! Atomic blaster.

Another 'In case of'

And the Q'Bert.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconstructed Key pendants to fantasy locations on: April 20, 2014 07:47:50 PM
Did 17 of these so far, with necklaces I've been collecting, and my vast stash of keys. So far I've made ones for The Wardrobe, the Tardis, The Emerald Castle, Bag End-Hobbiton-The Shire, The Nautilus, The Mach 5, The Serenity, Davy Jone's Locker, Camelot, The laboratories of Dr. Moreau and Dr. Frankenstein, Asgard, ect.
I've redone the font on some of them since I took this picture.
13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Gear Shrine on: April 20, 2014 07:24:00 PM
Took apart a computer drive thing-I dunno, it was a metal box with nifty innards, and a pain to take apart. ^_^ Painted it. Added a small piece of atc sized art I bought. It's gears embossed on paper, maybe colored with alcohol inks? I used gold foil  from a gift bag for the background.
Added a clockspring, an old capacitor, various bits and bobs, and came up with something useless but pretty. Added bonus-the real gears down the side move!


14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Shadowbox-Dejah Thoris's shootin' irons on: March 30, 2014 12:26:35 PM
'In case of thoat stampede, break glass. D.Thoris'
Okay, this one's obscure. I did a pair of old fashioned pistols, was stuck on what to put in the plaque, and the OH suggested 'thoat stampede'. It's a nod to Edgar Rice Burrough's John Carter of Mars series.
Old thrift store frame retouched, painted up toy pistols with metal rose charms, scrapbook paper, lace, and a copy of a bit of vintage wallpaper-I was lucky enough to save a book about wallpaper from the discard pile. Insert frame is a painted clearance ornament. Mixed colors to get a purpley brown and a purpley copper on the pistols.



15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Clocks, and a suncatcher on: March 30, 2014 12:09:50 PM
A Goodwill clock, and a dollar store clock, decorated.




And a suncatcher from bracelets and circuit board. I have maybe 15-20 in progress right now. Not an original idea, I saw it online and liked it.
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vanity Tray Set on: March 30, 2014 11:46:10 AM
A $5.00 piece of wall art from the Dollar store became the tray. I broke the glass, painted it black and silver, lined it with scrapbook paper and two strips of black pleather from an old purse, and did several coats of matte sealer.
Dollar Tree mirror, used a set of gear stencils, black and silver paint, metal chain,took the back off an old earring.
Round mint tin, green nail  polish and glossy sealer, and took apart a new hair clip.
Used a green bottle,  domed silver piece from broken jewelry on the top of the lid, wrapped screw top lid with leather strips and chain, green cabochon I'd had forever plus part of an earring on the front, tied a broken metal bracelet around the neck(with a little glue), and painted it with  clear jewelry glaze  for extra  shine.
17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / rayguns! pic heavy on: March 23, 2014 06:18:06 PM
I love this one! The frame for it was a lucky junk day find. It's the base to a broken aqua bubbler light, spray painted gold. The red bubble piece at the end is a pomegranate juice bottle. This pic came out kind of dark, need to take another! Part of the black is highlighted in a very nifty gold, but it doesn't seem to be showing up here. red rhinestone squares around the neck of the bottle.

And another! The medallions with the arrow were giant pink and cream 80's earrings, the question mark was from a dead keyboard. The stand was a piece of laminate shelving (yep, junk day!), the inner roller from receipt paper, metal round whatsit, a pizza box triangle plastic bit painted black and beaded.


This one was an  experiment. napkin rings,  another juice bottle, mini cocktail glass, a quilted style light bulb(not visible from this angle), annnd-a Barbie hairdryer. Not entirely happy with this one. *shrug*


And a work in progress. A Vulcan Nerf gun. Picture it yellow and orange! It didn't have the tripod or ammo clip, it doesn't work, it was all of one dollar-so I figured I might as well paint it. Like how it's turning out so far.

18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Calvin and Hobbes above my couch 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.

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Goodwill Clock steampunked up a bit 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.


20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Last mirror of 2013, a big one! 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.
