391  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: A few projects...(lots of pictures!) on: August 19, 2004 03:31:24 AM
I must say, v. impressive. I'm waiting for my dad and sister to wake up so I can put eyelets in this tshirt and make a spiffy-cool corset-style shirt, sort of like yours. But anyway, very impressive collection you got there.
And the only thing I love more than those re-cons is your blue hair. I'm a sucker for blue hair. I must dye mine blue sometime soon, but I'm petrified of bleach and my hair is so dark it's almost black.

but anywho.

Good work ;x

No, ow.

Put on a close-fitting shirt.  THEN wrap the duct tape around yourself, but ONLY the part with the shirt on.  Otherwise, it'll hurt.  Need to wrap enough for it to be stiff.

couldn't you also wrap yourself with duct tape sticky side out? and then wrap around that?? that way, you wouldn't ruin a shirt.

what about transfer letter sheets?  the kind that rub off onto almost any surface.  they come in tiny text size, too.  if you can find somewhere that sells them by the sheet they're pretty cheap.



The only problem with that is that I wanted to completely cover a box top (the top is about 5" by 7") with itty bitty text. It's for an anniversary present for my boyfriend. A while back we each made a few lists for each other, each was a list of a hundred reasons why we loved the other. In total, I have three of these lists that I wrote for him. I wanted to put some of his favorites on the top of the box, and then over that, line up three pictures in small, 1.5" frames with stars on them. the first picture is my eye ("I"), the next is a sticker heart that i put on my shoulder ("love"), and the last is the word "you" written on the palm of my hand in sharpie. His bedroom has a vague sky/moon/stars/clouds theme, so the outside of the box is painted a light blue shade to match his bedroom. The inside is silver. I put in silver hinges and clasps and screwed in those screw-eyelets (forget what they're called, I'll remember as soon as I post this, I bet). I screwed them in along the top of the top of the box, so when opened at a 90 angle, they're all the way at the top facing down. I hung beaded wire with stars at the ends from these hooks. I'm going to fill the box with little trinkets and wishing stars.

Sorry for explaining the whole thing to you guys, I plan on posting pictures of it when I'm done. If you guys read that, sorry if it's confusing too.

Hopefully that gives you guy some vague idea of what I'm doing.

If anyone's ever in NYC, a good place to pick up uber-cheap ties is in Chinatown in those little trinket shops. There's hundreds of those shops around and they sell ties really cheap. And they have really silly designs on them, like smiley faces and elephants and such. My friend bought a bunch of them for about five bucks to finish off her skirt.

here's a vague idea... If you make a copy of it (mirror image) you can use the blender markers (i can't think of the brandname hence the vague...they are the kind you use for graphic art and architecture type drawings) to transfer by going over the back of the text it somehow displaces the toner from the paper onto the other surface, which often looks distressed due to the inconsistency of how the toner comes off the paper...don't know if that will help or not... Huh

I was thinking about trying something like that.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

Second post here, but I've been looking around and I love all of your ideas.

This might be the wrong place to put this, but I couldn't find another topic that fit it exactly.

I have a small wooden box that I painted light blue with acrylic paint. I got the idea to transfer text onto the top of the box and then add three pictures across the lid. (sort of confusing, sorry. If anyone wants me to clear it up, let me know). I can't figure out how to transfer the text onto the box. I don't want to use stenciling because I want to cover the entire lid with pretty small text (block lettering size 8, or script in a bigger size). Any ideas on what I could do about this? I want it to have a sort of distressed look, I think.

If any of you could help, I'd appreciate it VERY much. Thanks <3

Who is this stick guy? It was probably on before i was born, or i was too young to remember. I still do remember some old Nick shows like pete and pete though!

Stick is possibly the coolest Nickelodeon afternoon show host ever. He's a popsicle stick with an address and he was on for quite some time. He did an afternoon show (he was replaced by Slimetime Live, U-pick Live, etc) and would show all the old-school Nick programs. He did interviews with moviestars and things like that too.
He was just overall a really cool guy.
But, unfortunately, he's been off the air since the nineties. You were probably no older than five when he was taken off the air.
