1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Repainted Jewelry Box for Spring on: March 14, 2013 11:18:11 PM

So when my fiances mother was in town they went thrift shopping and got me a jewelry box that had some horse stickers stuck on probably by the child who owned it. other than that it was very plain and just kind of old school looking.

it even had a cute little music box mechanism so i made sure to cover that when priming and painting.

SO I sanded it down and primed it with car filler primer actually which helped with nicks.

I painted over it in Aqua green Acrylic and Metallic Gold

 added some stenciling on both sides.

cut some paper out and mod podged it to the glass

I stenciled some leaves on top as well

and the new bird stencil is finished~

I'm actually working on an earring and necklace holder to go above my dresser that I will be repainting and fixing as well.

I want to add another bird on a branch stencil to the top middle since the one on the original i used was way to small so when I can get one it will be finished so the top on has some sealant on the gold leaves. Luckily the mod podge dried and isn't sticky which I heard some people have trouble with.
I also want to recolor the inside fabric but its kind of a velvety fabric so i wouldn't know how or what. Must do research.

one old wooden Jewelry Box
Sandpaper in 60 and 220 Grit
Acrylic Paint in Aqua Green and Metallic Gold
Rust-oleum Filler Primer (originally for cars but an be used on wood)
tree stencil
Paper to cover glass and horse stickers from Michaels
Matte Mod Podge for a sealant

thanks for looking! my next project will be finding another jewelry box and painting as the tardis for a friends birthday.

 used a bunch of polishes I use OPI, China Glaze, Sinful Colors, wet N wild and some random brands at times.
Please tell me what you think! Cheesy
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / kairi Kingdom Hearts 2 cosplay on: July 07, 2012 02:39:32 PM
So for Fanime this year (was in May) I made a costume for Kairi. i used a pattern and bascially added zippers to the seams and shortened it to not the correct length but what I was comfortable with.

I made the lining to make sure it fit and where to cut and whatnot

and a group photo to see me compared with others (second from the left)

I made my keyblade from a dowel rod I think painted cut into and added plastic from a $1 tub and glued fake flowers to it
and the handles are glue gunned on with air dry clay and painted. I decided to redo it and make a mold for next year as it fell apart -_-;
The bag/belt is like furniture fake leathery fabric which I sewed together and added studs to.
I used Duck fabric for the dress, was expensive but a great material to work with.

I have a lot to redo and fix but it was awesome ^^
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Heartless Plush Kingdom Hearts on: December 16, 2011 02:32:38 AM
SO its taken me about a day (over two days time) to complete this.

IT IS NOT MY PATTERN I GOT IT HERE : http://risachantag.deviantart.com/art/Shadow-Heartless-Plush-Pattern-45560153

I made it for my roommate/bestie for christmas. she loves Kingdom Hearts (even has a tatt) and so far I only had one present and needed another one. Found this and it was perfect and I tried to be pretty patient in making it ( I like instant gratification things)

There is a wire frame (ish) and he sits! I love it. I almost don't want to give it up xD

hope you (and she) likes Cheesy

So I got a proposal from two friends wanting to have tables in artist alley at a convention being held in my hometown in July.
So I started getting ideas to make charms to sell. Need to perfect some things but it's going well. Cheesy
I made the display case as well..no I made the backgrounds and punched the hooks in, the display case is from work to display Passion of the Christ DVD's for Easter....we had quite a few left over.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Left 4 dead Med kit on: April 27, 2011 12:48:43 AM
So I sewed together a Med Kit for my Cosplay at fanimecon 2011, I will be going as a [kinda large] Zoey. I need to get holsters and a gun, some PILLZ, and a belt.
Need that red jacket too....and the shoes. Damn I need a bunch xD

So the red is canvas material, two zippers (fully functional) I backed it with some foam, the black straps are made of an elastic material.  I used some transfer paper for the First Aid symbol and  the cross is some white cotton blend and the res is the same as well. I cut out the cross after I drew it on and saw what a prisma did to the fabric XD. I sewed it on like a patch rather than trying to make it perfect since its for me.

So thats it! I'm going to use it to store my phone and such during the con.
Oh! and since in game it looks like it magically sticks to their back, I'm going to get some clear elastic to attach as a backpack to make it look floatie xD






and thats it!
