21  Re: OMG - I need a drink swap GALLERY (send outs July 10) in The Swap Gallery by fluffypants on: July 23, 2015 07:02:34 PM
What fun goodies! The towels are great. I bought my husband some of the beer salt for Christmas last year; he hasn't tried it with beer yet but the salt itself it actually quite tasty, haha. Smiley

I received a fabulous box of amazing from SheridanLA today!

First up, fun garnishes - umbrellas and drink markers, palm tree stickers, a little recipe booklet, and a cute necklace to wear while serving up goods at our.....


A great Tiki Bar sign which my husband thoroughly enjoys!

And my favourite, the piece de resistance - an amazing collaged canvas with a Rat Pack photo and one of my favourite Dean Martin quotes: "Don't drink and drive. Don't even putt." This is such a fun piece and I can't wait to put it up in my craft room! Smiley

Thanks so much, Sheridan - it's all worth drinking to! Smiley

24  Sirius Black quote lamp! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by fluffypants on: July 09, 2015 04:22:21 PM
Made for fatewineroses in the Quotes Quotes Quotes swap! This started as a really good idea. It took about 10x longer than I planned, but I was happy with the end result so I didn't mind so much. Wink



The creation:

When I read my partner's quote, the "light" and "dark" struck me as NEEDS TO BE A LAMP. Since I had a lamp base sitting around, it seemed fitting!

It started with designing a cut file of the quote. (For some reason my mind filled in the word "darkness" instead of "dark", whoops!) I then fed it through the silhouette on a heavy chalkboard paper (as I figured I wanted something stable enough that I didn't need a wireframe in the shade). Great idea? I thought so! The Silhouette didn't. I tried twice and it wouldn't cut through the paper. So, I cut the quote entirely by hand.

Then it ended up being too small for the frame I'd rigged up for the lamp. Oops. And I was out of black paper. Double oops. I tried creating a few of my own wireframes to hold it on the bulb (most were hilariously Frankenstein-ish). Then lo and behold, one day at a thrift store, I found a lampshade almost the exact same size, so I bought it and dismantled it, and glued it to my piece. HOORAH!

Long story short, it was a lot of trial and error but I'm glad it worked out in the long run. Smiley Next time I'll buy a lampshade to base it on first!

25  Dr. Who/Tardis Jewelry Box! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fluffypants on: July 09, 2015 04:11:49 PM
Made for my partner, fatewineroses, in the Quotes Quotes Quotes swap. I was going to post this over in housewares, but noticed a notice pointing me this way, so here it is. Smiley

The completed project:

Humble beginnings:

The whole thing was painted in a cabinet paint before painting the galaxy effect in acrylics. I traced out the sides and top of the cabinet onto paper, and drew the banner so it would loop seamlessly across all sides. I then cut out my sketch and traced it onto the box, and painted it in. The quote and detailing was done in Sharpie once the paint had dried. Smiley

"I am and always will be..."

"The optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams."

The glass out of the door was replaced with a little piece of something that was basically plexiglass; I just bought a sheet and cut to size.

I had a lot of fun with this one, and can't wait to do another! I picked up a jewelry box that plays the theme from the Godfather, so I'm anxious to figure something out for that one. Wink

Thanks for looking!

P.S.: fatewineroses, I had some trouble with the bottom drawer sticking. If you jiggle it by the sides rather than the handle, it'll come out! Smiley

The image transfer is so cool! I like the rough look to the edges.

My partner also received in the Darker Side of Disney swap, so I can finally post pics! The shrine I made has its own thread over here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439913.0

AND other than the box/shelf, it was made entirely from stash, woohoo!

27  Disney Villains Shrine (kinda pic heavy) in Completed Projects by fluffypants on: July 08, 2015 06:04:19 PM
I made a shrine for amc- in the "Darker Side of Disney" swap! She's received so I am now safe to post photos!


From humble beginnings....

After painting and decorating the interior:

I made all the figures out of Sculpey. They were fun! I found a tutorial for Cruella and Hades on YouTube, and made up Scar and Captain Hook. Captain Hook is my favourite! I love the way his outfit turned out. Here they are before going into their "environments":


And after:

The full shebang!

A couple fun little things I used:
- Flat shiny green bead/charm things that reminded me of crocodile scales for part of Captain Hook's background
- A broken piece of jewelry (on the left) that was the closest thing I had to an alarm clock for the Cap'n
- A little picture of a dalmatian (I drew spots on a generic dog from some scrapbooking paper) with a pair of scissors on Cruella's background
- Scar is standing on a little pile of buttons, hehe Smiley
- The "gem" at top centre is a broken piece of jewelry, a bottle cap, a gem, a pendant, and a rhinestone brad
- The gemstones up the left side are an old bracelet my hubby's grandma bought me at a thrift store... the beads were cool, but I don't wear bracelets... yay craftiness!
- The rhinestone string up the middle is another bracelet I got in a surprise pack
- I originally made the flower on top for my wedding! It was part of a centrepiece. Smiley
- Other than the shelf/box itself, this piece was completely from stash. YAYYYY!

Thanks for looking!

I'm loving all of the mixed media pieces - that hoop is so neat!

I received from fatewineroses today and it's AWESOME! Cheesy I got a Ghirardelli chocolate bar (which was very melty, so it's setting up in the fridge Smiley), a sweet mug rug, and a beautiful reversible bag! The photo does not do the mug rug justice - it has a great embroidered portrait of Mike Nesmith. (And of COURSE I could tell who it was, fatewineroses!)

The mug rug:

The bag: I had a giggle when I was staring at it thinking the face looked familiar. It still strikes me as something from a children's book or cartoon I've seen, but when I read the note included, it's ME! She found a picture of me on one of my previous crafts, enlarged it, and traced out my face in embroidery, hehehe!

The bag reversed:

Thank you so much, I adore all of the goodies! This was such a fun swap. Smiley

Love the scarf and the purple skirt!

So many wonderful things over the past many pages. Love the jeans (Bart and Elvis... what a combo!) and the zippery pouch!

My latest is for the May contest - it has its own thread with many detail shots over here!

It was a lot of fun to work on and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out for my first time doing something like this!
