1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / I take my beagle everywhere! on: April 05, 2008 06:24:08 PM
This was my first attempt at silk screening.
it was time consuming.

but

it turned out better than I imagined.

it's my dog, Tinkerbell.
She really is the perfect dog.



it looks kinda splochy in the pic, but I mixed silver and black paint so it just has a glare.




the only thing i wish I would have done is to not center it.
I think it would have looked better if she was more to the left.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Table makeover on: March 19, 2008 12:10:57 PM
My old roommate left a crappy end table at the house when he moved out. I wish I could have taken 'before' pics.  It was gross and covered with "weed rulez" stickers and had a horribly large tacky wooden knob.

I painted it red, covered the drawer in circular mirrors of different sizes, grouted in between them and added a new brushed metal handle.



The only problem I'm having is with the type of paint I used.  It was some acrylic latex, maybe. Now when I set stuff on it...it has a tendency to stick and pull the paint off whatever I sit on it.  Is there any type of sealant I should use to fix it? What type of paint should I use next time?
3  COOKING / Dessert / Jupiter cake on: March 19, 2008 08:59:34 AM
It's far from impressive, but it was done quickly and cake decorating is not my specialty.  It was for my boss' b-day party at work.  The theme was astronomy related.  Everyone enjoyed it and that's all that counts, right?

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Puppy Love. on: March 18, 2008 06:35:29 AM
This is my first post on craftster!!
and my first stencil project!!

it's the furry love of my life, Tinkerbell.
She's a beagle.

I was thinking of doing a little thought bubble and putting something in it like a milkbone painted gold or something since she looks like she is looking up, but who knows.


this is what my little one looks like. <3
