2511  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Catfood tins/cans on: February 25, 2008 05:59:17 PM
Fill a frame completely with them.Put a picture in each one-all different,or one big print cut into circles,like a rasterbation, kind of.maybe paint them first,solid background behind tins.I can see it,just can't describe it well.
I have a Goddess in the Ktchen cookbook,and one of the recipies is for chocolate babycakes-they used clean tuna fish size cans,you stack the little cakes 3 or 4 high with lots of icing inbetween the layers,for a decadent dessert for one.I can pm you the recipie if you want.

Are they breaking in the middle?Or earpieces coming off? If you do a scarecrow,it might need a pair of cool shades.Do you have anything to cut a lense with? Cut one down to size,paint/decoupage on it,drill a hole to hang as a pendant. I saw in a garden project book at the library(No idea what book now) where they made a giant spiderweb out of wire.You attached it to a fence or tree trunk.They had several lenses from old glasses.They drilled holes and wired them on randomly;looked like dewdrops.Earpieces would make good legs for a bug sculpture.Use the lenses in a mosaic-dark lenses with a bright or glittery grout might look cool.You could overlap them and make a raven,or fish,or black rose.Yes, I'm really reaching here.

I don't know what the metal poppers are,but that's an idea. It'll be a while before I get time to make these. I'm sure someone will post the perfect solution before then Grin.EDIT-Button covers! That's it! Next time I'm flush enough to dare enter the fabric store I'll check them out.
"its so intruiging to see your ideas venturing out into other people's heads... " Yes,it is! I love how we all infect,er,inspire each other.
Here's the magnet and the box I made-I'm trying to quote these as links and not images-I'll delete them if I messed up.

2515  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: De-Clutterify my life: Covering up power cords on: February 25, 2008 04:51:50 PM
If you have a cord on a wall that you have to live with,you paint the cord the same shade as the wall-it really hides it.
2516  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: smallest bathroom in the world into blue girlyness on: February 25, 2008 04:44:25 PM
Go online and get pictures of old labels for beauty products-something that looks 1950's,maybe 60's(aquanet,anyone? Dippity do?).print them out and laminate.Wrap them around any jars,bottles,ect. you keep out, to store things like cotton balls,bath salts,the pump dispenser for handsoap.ect.Taschen sells books full of ads by decades.Most bookstores have them in the graphic design shelf-between interior design and art-if you'd rather cut up/scan from a book than download.
With your Marilyn Monroe print,I can see a 50's theme-and there was just a retro 50's swap,check out the gallery.Since the room is small,maybe a solid color for window curtains & shower curtain.And if you find some coordinating vintage look fabric-valance,tie backs,appliques.Depends how busy your walls are.
My bathroom is barely larger than yours-it is a challenge,isn't it?
A shadowbox(or shelf)  featuring a vintage postcard of paris,(or other romantic getaway),old perfume bottle,compact,pair of white gloves,rhinestone pin,ect.
2517  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: RESIN on: February 25, 2008 03:23:06 PM
If you coated a button with envirotex, could you hand wash the garment? I just saw some decoupaged buttons on the misc.forum that I want to try to make myself-she glued paper onto bottlecaps,then glued the caps onto buttons. I know I could take the buttons off and resew them, but I'm hoping there's another way.

Great idea!
2519  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: anime bottlecap buttons!! on: February 25, 2008 03:07:45 PM
Oh, I like! I'd like to use your idea and make these to put on a denim jacket for my daughter.I'd have to take them off before washing it, but how often do you have to wash a coat anyway? I'd use a lot of clear sealant spray or envirotex whenever it warms up enough for me to work outside.
 I have all these free animanga mini magazines from work-if I don't take them,they get thrown away. I covered a tin box with them for her birthday last year.And I made some big magnets that came out well. I've been looking for another project. Thanks!
2520  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Acrylic paint on mugs/glasses? on: February 25, 2008 02:43:05 PM
I want to put a design on a mug and a glass,but I'm too broke to go buy etching cream or glass paint. I do have acrylic paint-will that work?  Can I heat set it by baking it in the oven? I know you can heat set acrylic on fabric. Should I just seal it with something? I know whatever I do it'll have to be carefully hand washed.
Thanks!
