I saw this on a tshirt online, and decided it'd make a great plaque! I had two small wooden plaques, scrapbook paper, and a bag of cheap dice. haven't finished the second one yet!
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pretty hunk of circuit board 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.

17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Superman lamp,pic heavy on: October 03, 2014 07:51:21 AM
Thrift store lamp,takes a teardrop 60 watt bulb. Lampshade I already had-I meticulously painted my daughter's ball lamp to be a Bob-omb lamp, then found out the lamp no longer worked! So, I salvaged the lampshade. Grr.
Anyway! Shade painted black, Between the small bulb and the painted shade, this is not a light up a dark room or do homework by it lamp. But it looks cool. The Superman pages were from a beat up children's book. Glued down, and the whole thing covered with brush on clear sealer. The lamp was originally a tired brassy color and maroon, I painted it black and gold.

Do kids even know what a phone booth is anymore? Up,Up,and Away!

Clark Kent hears a cry for help! Oh no, a bank robbery!

Time to rip off the shirt and take to the sky! And what kind of white shirt does he have that the bright blue and red long johns don't show through? Does he hid his cape under that shirt too?

Does he wear those red boots to the Daily Planet?

Cowed by his super might as well as his fashion sense,the bank robbers wisely surrender.

One more pic.


The next lamp,I bite the bullet and go out and make color photocopies of my comic pages. I've found out that nothing keeps the printing on the reverse of the page from showing through-not gluing it to white paper, or black paper, or painting the back,or brushing on a base coat of mod podge/white glue. Here, with the shade itself black, it works fine-plus, these aren't thin comic book pages, but pages from a battered book.

The interesting clay beads are handmade,and a gift from a fellow crafster. Almost all my chain stash-I need another thrift store trip!-,tiny mirrors, gold pearl beads from a cheap necklace, and a long string of beigiesh-greyish pearl beads from an old broken necklace. The base? A cheap piece of wall art from Dollar General,spray painted black, then lightly oversprayed with gold. And good old E6000.
20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunky pearl handled revolver on: September 13, 2014 06:16:01 PM

pearl handled revolver 002 by chicgeekcf4l, on Flickr

A cheap plastic toy that had good embossing. Blue,copper and black paint, rub n buff, and tons of white  nail polish, with a tiny tiny bit of pink to attempt a hint of mother of pearl iridescence.
The two white gears are from a couple of cheap plastic tape runners after I'd used them up.
