61  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Two pendants 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.
62  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / pair of geeky prints for a kid's room 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.




63  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A few trinket boxes on: December 02, 2013 12:52:34 PM
goodwill wooden jewelry box,deer from a broken shadowbox,had fun painting it!

Another jewelry box, painted it.


Experimenting. Decoupaged a crumpled,painted paper towel on a box I painted purple.


Playing with stuff from the jewelry stash,the purpley goldish box color didn't photograph well.

Odd earring, and a lot of my odd tiny beads, painted box.
64  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Four mirrors, very pic heavy! on: December 02, 2013 12:36:56 PM
This was an ornate frame from a thrift store. Two rows of gold chain,one row of pearl, four corner pieces from the stash. Two leaf earrings on the sides-there was the tiniest chip, and it hides it. And a mirror taken from a hand mirror.


This one took minutes to do. Wooden plate frame and green plate from the same thrift store trip, a mirror,rowof pearl beads,done!

This one took forever! Goodwill mirror, the clear with blue glass pebbles I'd had around forever, pearls, odd larger blue beads and a million seed beads at the top and bottom.



Another Goodwill mirror, can hang horizontally or vertically.I had a blue and an orange pair of necklaces in my stash that I wasn't going to wear,but I love those colors together. Took them apart for the beads, also used wooden beads, and any random blue/orange/brown beads I had, plus seed beads.

66  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Triple Moon on: November 14, 2013 05:09:56 PM
A piece of cherry cabinet from the Habitat Restore, almost all my broken chains,a few beads, a broken compact, a small mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree, a few charms and odd earrings, and iridescent glass tiles from the craft store. The dragonfly is from some clearanced metal garden decor, that I painted.

detail shots

The tiles are very iridescent in real life.

Little frog

I'll go over it again and fill in a couple of places a bit more. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
EDIT-putting a link to my inspiration here in the top post, I forgot to do that when I originally posted! I don't know her,but this artist makes cool stuff. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TUTreasures?ref=l2-shopheader-name
67  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Leaf Box on: November 01, 2013 12:24:22 PM
Started as a battered wooden bible box from the thrift store.

The sides have a daubed on layer of black screenprinting ink, and then some antique gold rub n'buff. Screenprinting ink takes a few days to dry, but it's just perfec for some things. 


The inside is scrapbook paper,flocked ribbon, and a little more gold rub and buff.

Leaf close up.

Real leaves,foil,rub n' buff, spray paint, three shades of luminere acrylic paint, and glaze. And old gift cards. ^^

68  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Steampunkish butterfly mirror. on: October 31, 2013 07:46:39 PM
Steampunkish butterfly mirror. A ceiling medallion I painted, a few rows of chain, a Dollar Tree mirror, and a butterfly. The butterfly was from some brightly colored metal garden decor vastly marked down at Dollar general.I painted it and added a few red glass beads. Just needs a hanger.


69  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A couple of raygun shadowboxes on: October 26, 2013 01:29:28 PM
I needed a break from making mirrors, so whipped up a couple of these.  Grin I love buying cheap shadowboxes at the thrift store to take apart!


Can't really see any detail here, but there's metal bits added for a trigger, a metal cap on the nozzle, and a green brad at the end. Silver, white,and purple paint on a tiny water pistol from a pack of party favors, scrapbook paper, and a thrift store frame, and the word 'Imagine'. Most of my shadowboxes are 'in case of airship pirates/space pirates break glass, but I wanted to make a few different ones.


Second shadowbox! An old earring, a tiny key, a copper coil, the green bulb is from electronic innards, a disc, a pointy bit of plastic. Scrapbook paper and thrift store frame. The label-printed, cutout,glued on cardboard,wrapped in some twisted thin yarn from a tassel. The green leaves? From a sheet of temporary tattoos.

I bought a humongous pair of hoop earrings just for the pretty iridescent beads. Took them apart,strung them on a thin gold chain.
