1  bamboo tile bead in Beads: Completed Projects by AnonymousContent on: November 18, 2007 07:43:29 AM
I found a bamboo placemat while out and about one day. 
This is the first bead I made using one of the gazillion tiles on that placemat.  lol

I coated the image with gel matte medium, let it dry and soaked it in water the I slowly and carefully rubbed the paper off from the back.  I let it dry and used gel medium to adhere it to the tile.

This is the finished product.  I wanted to go simple and let the image be what stands out.  Not sure I accomplished it but it was fun trying this.

I also belly dance and make costumes.
Here is a bra I made for my teacher.  I was rather proud to see her in it on a flyer around town.

3  altered clipboards done an inexpensive way in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by AnonymousContent on: November 03, 2007 07:22:03 AM
I found a collection of wall paper samples(borders and such)in my art room the other day and remembered the struggle I had just picking out a permanent wall solution even though I had the samples.  LOL the walls ended up being painted b/c I am so non-commital on things d/t liking change too much.

Anyway, I grabbed some clipboards and used the samples(which were free)and created the clipboards.  I had purchased the clipboards at an office supply place for 4 for about 3.00$
I cut the peppers out from the border and thought they looked so much more lively than if I had not done so. 

These are really inexpensive.  Wall paper free, the paint .97cents a bottle and the clipboard itself was less than a dollar given it came packaged with other clipboards.

4  old table new again in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by AnonymousContent on: November 03, 2007 07:11:24 AM
This was an old wooden table on the deck that had turned grey from the weather and I wanted to get a feel for doing mosaics so it was my lab rat so to speak.  lol

I used the dull gray cement baths you can purchase at home improvement stores and add my personality to these.

I made this costume bra for a friend I belly dance with.  I saw her on a flyer last week in it and I had to smile knowing Hey, I made that.

7  Teeny Tiny butterfly journals in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by AnonymousContent on: October 29, 2006 03:35:01 PM
These are journals I made after seeing an article in a magazine on them.  They intrigued me so I just had to make me a few.  Were fun to make and it was even more fun to see people's face when they realized they are very small journals.

8  First altered-art clipboard in Completed Projects by AnonymousContent on: October 29, 2006 03:32:43 PM
Figured I'd give this a try since I had seen a few I thought were so lovely.  My Mother snagged this one during a visit and you know, I have yet to see her use it now that I mention it.  hehe

9  reincarnated plain incense tin in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by AnonymousContent on: October 29, 2006 03:30:37 PM
I have a gazillion of these things laying around.  I decided to give it a make-over and was pretty pleased with the results.  My Mother snagged this for herself during one of her visits.  She has it displayed and tells everyone who notices it I made it.  Such a sweet Mom.

10  my first attempt at a dragon in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by AnonymousContent on: October 29, 2006 03:28:39 PM
I made this dragon for my nephew as one of his birthday gifts.  It sits on a rock on his shelf in his room.  I wasn't disappointed in it but felt I could have done much better if I had not been in a rush.
