thanks Smiley Its actually much more contrasted in person. I used e6000, and its all held up really well. for the beads in between all the whimsies i used super glue so it would seep into the cracks better.

Thank you for such a wonderful tutorial. Here is what I've made.

I traced a silhouette of Smurfette kissing a smurf from my smurf coloring book. Since I had some extra plastic window covers (the kind you use to make a frosted window), I used that inside of contact paper. Once out, it actually makes a neat blue plastic silhouette that I'm going to use for something later. I also used E6000 glue like you suggested.

A few close up shots

Pictured is my old drum key, game pieces of my initials, hand cuff keys, ladybug button, broken chain, beads bits and buttons, and a moon face stone.

Pictured here is a little mermaid pen cap as well as many other bits and pieces.

My six year old son has started his collection of broken bits, bottle cups, and numerous action figure arms. I promised him that we'd make a Spider-Man silhouette and spray paint it red. He's very excited and I'm excited that my hoarder of a son found a useful way to use the broken bits of his favorite toys that he won't part with.

Thanks again for a wonderful tutorial!

That looks so great! I can't wait to see how the one for your son turns out!  Cheesy Such a charming story.

Here is the one my son helped make. He gathered up most of the items and picked out the picture he wanted out of his coloring book. I thought he'd help me glue but he was so afraid of putting things in the wrong place so I ended up gluing. But he'd stayed and watched. He was very excited.

Unfortunately, it rained the passed couple days and his little canvas had to wait to be spray painted. I need to touch up the silhouette with some paint, especially around the feet.
