391  Long Live the Queen Bee in Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: August 04, 2014 02:29:48 PM
I had purchased this wonderful Bee Shrine kit from Retro Cafe Art Gallery months ago and have been wanting to make it but have been busy with all kinds of swaps and real life.  Thanks to the Fake Swap Craftalong I was able to fake join the whimsical shrine swap and was inspired to pull it out. 

I started by spray painting just about everything black and did a quick spritz of gold so there would be a little sparkle. Then I used some other paints I had on the hive.  I mixed some colors up to come up with the right coppery yellow I wanted.  When they were dry I pressed the yellow bits into an ink pad.  The torso is a piece of paper with yellow paint and painted black dots.

The wings were painted black and I painted some random holey paper then attached it.  I had the bee cut outs and wasn't quite sure what to do with them at first but then it hit me that they should be buzzing around their queen!  I just sandwiched some wire between two painted bees then attached them with glue and tape.

This is probably one of my most favorite altered items that I have done!  I am glad I get to actually keep this one!

Adia received her package from darkangelwingz and Amaryce today and loved it all!

She got this beautiful butterfly card

Two pendants.  The first one has a little clay kitty in it and the second has the cutest hippo charm

Not sure about Adia but this was my favorite thing she recieved

Pretty sure this was her favorite though.  She gave a little gasp when she opened it!

She also got two notebooks and 4 bookmarks in her favorite themes.

Finally she got two more shirts.

Thank you so much!

We had lots of fun enjoying some cooler weather up North this past weekend.  Of course Marty got to come along and meet some new friends.

The Abandoned Art FB page has a list of members from each state.  They are an inspiring group and I urge you guys to check them out if you are on FB.

I have another post today!  I did a quick personal swap with sheepBlue who requested some more notecards.  I sent her this set of 10.

397  Silhouette Cameo Cut Notecards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by lindyv321 on: July 24, 2014 02:59:22 PM
I did a quick personal swap with sheepBlue for some beads and she requested more of the cards I had sent her a while back.  

I experimented a bit this time and used blank cards and attached the cut designs with with spray on Tacky Glue.  I think this batch turned out much better and I can't wait to play with more designs, colors, etc.

These I left with blank spots so she can add some customization.  Maybe a stamped Thank You or something of the sort.

These foxes were left over from the last batch of cards and I didn't want them to go to waste.  I think next time I will also cut a small rectangle of black to put them on before attaching to the card.  Give a bit more dimension.

Everyone looks like they are having tons of fun!

Last night Marty helped get things together for my first Art Abandonment.  Here he is waiting for me to put a tag on the bag.  I think we will be doing some drops this weekend when we go up North.

I love those little birds!

I am going to play along with the Art Abandonment Craft Along and I finally have my first items to drop ready.  I made 7 pendants with stamped bags and tags for people to find.  All the pendants are different and the bags have different images also.  Here is one set.

And the tags

I got my first drop items ready to go!  Will be leaving some around up North over the weekend.

I made a variety of pendants and put them in stamped bags.

These are the tags I attached to them which are cut out of very colorful one sided scrapbook paper

I also made 3 sets of washi tape clothes pins but I am not sure if I want to leave them as is or attach magnets to them.  I will post photos once I decide.
