 I received from Bunny1kenobi today and she did not disappoint! I love both of them so much.
 First up I got this galaxy looking pendant I was eyeing over in the Games. I love the colors!

 It's raining here and dreary so I will swap out these photos for brighter ones if I can get them this weekend. It doesn't do it justice with how pretty it is.
 Then she surprised me with this amazing piece! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chain part. It's SO pretty! She knows I love those little roses. She put it together so beautifully with the key, cameo, sprocket and roses. Amazing job Bunny1kenobi. I LOVE it!!!!

 I'm glad you like them! I almost kept the birdhouse because of that but I figured you would find it funny too. Very random. I didn't even notice it until I was sealing it. LOL! Tongue

 Thanks for the tip! I used spray acrylic and I hadn't used it in a while or shake it properly so it came out bubbly and uneven.  Undecided My own dumb fault.

Prompt: July - Dark Matter
Team: Wordy!!
Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: Community
Project Name: Birdhouse Pendants
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439938.0
Brief Description:  I have always loved the look of these pendants but thought the roof would be hard to cut. Then it hit me, Sculpey! I think they turned out cute. I used actual Dictionary pages for the outside and there was a funny accident on Bunny1kenobi's. I didn't notice til I was sealing it and laughed WAY to hard about it.  Either the threatening text on the back or all the glue holding it together could be the hidden element. I am going with the hidden message. Ha!
Project Picture:

I was using nice and inspirational word on the fronts.

I didn't pay attention to the back. Yep, Beat a Person in bold print. LOL!

Prompt:  Team Spirit - Wordy
Team: Wordy!!
Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: +10 my own team. & Community
Project Name: Dictionary Necklaces
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439940.0
Brief Description: I had to use books somehow in my Team Prompt. I love the Dictionary necklaces and decided to make them. The cat one didn't get enough sealer so the glue soaked thru but that was okay since it was for myself anyways. The Love one is for the Team Wordy August prize and I plan to make another one to go inside the Ellie bag in the Game Prizes.

 PS. I added the Community post to my Starstuff Prompt on page 24. I'll wait until they are posted form now on so it's not so confusing. Sorry!

 I tried to make the dictionary text pendants but I don't think I sprayed the large one with enough sealer. It's okay cas that was the one for myself. I wasn't sure if anyone else was as proud of their cat lady status as I am.  Tongue

 I still think it looks interesting. It has a more vintage and aged feel to it. Yeah, that's what I will go with.  Wink
 I used dictionary pages printed on cardstock and Distressing ink.
 Thanks for looking.  Grin
1287  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Glowing Star & Steampunk Pendants on: July 10, 2015 07:01:29 AM
 I recently finished up the Pendant swap and wanted to share what I made.
 A while ago I made couple Steampunk Pendants out of Sculpey and decided to try it with another shape so I chose Stars!

 The backgrounds glow in that dark but I couldn't get a decent picture of it.
 Here are the ones I made earlier. They glow too.

 I tried tinting them with chalk but in the end likes the look of alcohol inks better on them.

 I always want to wear more necklaces in the summer since I don't have a scarf covering them up. I joined the pendant swap this round and this is one of the designs I decided to try. I have always loved the birdhouse pendants but thought cutting the roofs would be cumbersome and a pain. I found the squares with holes and pegs at Michaels and decided to try using Sculpey to make the roof. I think it turned out pretty cute and saved my fingers from some unwanted bloodletting.
 Here are the fronts

 and the backs

 I love the look of Dictionary pages in artwork and wanted to use inspirational and nice words on them.

 While I was doing the clear coat I realized what this one said on the back. It was completely random so it made it so much funnier to me. Yes, It reads "beat a person" in bold text no less.  Roll Eyes

 Here's a shot of how I made them taller. I glued, painted and sanded them before adhering the dictionary pages.

 Thanks for checking them out. I had a lot of fun making them and suspect a couple family members might get some for Christmas.

 and it doesn't have to be four of the same thing. You can mix it up.

 And I love the fridge magnets you sent me. They are so adorable!
