1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / SMILE! on: June 29, 2012 07:24:22 PM
So, I saw a post by Knickertwist about her beautiful little frames that she made and abandoned...I also started following the group on facebook...I love seeing everyone's beautiful stuff on there...Well, it's certainly inspired me to make more stuff...I am my own worst critic and don't think my stuff is GREAT, but I've not done collages in a while...I love doing them, but sometimes I get stuck...

Well, I love the images of women + wings, so I decided to go with that theme....I used a small 4x6 frame I had in my stash that was from the dollar store. I covered the frame in glitter tape, used an old dictionary page set at an angle for the background. I then (after a lengthy search) found a lady that I liked online... I found one of the cute little butterfly dimensional stickers I had in my stash and used foam tape to make the lady the same height as the butterfly...I originally stamped a crown over her head, but I hated it. So I found one that I had printed out earlier and added purple rhinestones and foam tape to raise it up...I used vintage rhinestones for the buttons of her dress..They're not flatback style, so they don't lie flat but I like the dimension.

I'm not a huge fan of the "Smile" part, but I'm leaving it because it isn't for me. It's for the art abandonment group...I'll drop it off somewhere tomorrow when I go out with my friends.

Please let me know what you think...I can take constructive criticism! Cheesy
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Ripple Afghan on: December 01, 2011 11:20:32 PM
I finally finished this project I started back in October (I'm notorious for not finishing things lol). I made this for a friend at work who is having a little boy.  I used this pattern: http://www.handcraftingwithlove.net/yarn/pat-ripple.html

I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Baby in Aqua, Angel White and Little Boy Blue. ~2 skeins of each blue, and 3-3 1/2 for the white. It's made with dc all the way through, so it was actually really fast to make once I actually worked on it! And I finished it with a hdc border along the straight sides.

Sorry the pics kind of suck, I was trying to get a good pic before all my animals decided to lay on it.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Naughty Resin. NSFW. on: August 18, 2008 10:07:58 AM
If you are offended by bad words, or the "C" word please-

If not, onward!!

So, I decided that because my other batch of resin came out like poo, I wanted to do something different.  So I stamped up some paper, wrapped it in packing tape, and set it in resin with that wonderful Martha Stewart glitter.  Here are the best ones!

Because I love that saying..I did have one that said "bukkit" but it didn't come out..   Sad

Just because I can.

Another re-hash of the first..

And of course, you can't leave this one out!!  lol

Thanks for looking!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tequila/Dragon Box on: July 15, 2008 04:33:48 PM

This was this ugly tequila box that I had gotten a few years back...So it's been sitting around collecting dust. So I ripped out this ugly red velvet and had fun trying to get all the glue out, and sanded all surfaces.

Then I painted it all black, and put a Ciruelo print, "Hobswyllin, The Guardian" on the front, and put eleventy billion coats of polycrylic on the top..

After that, I wrapped cardboard in fabric, using that double sided tacky craft tape, and E-6000 to adhere the cardboard to the insides.  I did purple on the bottom of the box, blue "starry night" on the inside top, and black fabric on the sides of the bottom. 

Anyways, I hope you guys like it as much as I do...I absolutely love that print!

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky dink pendants and a skeleton! on: March 18, 2008 01:23:30 PM
Since I'm new here, I figure I'd introduce myself.  My name is May, I'm from Nevada.  I work full time, go to school full time, and somehow still get some crafting done.  I really like beading, polymer clay and shrink plastic. 

So without further ado (I can't post pics yet, so here are my links)
