1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / from a window to a picture frame on: December 20, 2009 11:50:18 PM

As my name might indicate, I like poppies.  So awhile back I had this idea to take an old window and use it as a frame for some pics of poppies I took while walking my dog this summer.  I was going to paint the wood trim, but it had yellow and pink paint layers under the white that ended up looking great with some strategic sanding.  I never thought I'd be creating a faux antique look, but I am very happy with it.  The green squares might get orange poppies, since they're my favorite, if I can get some good pics next summer.  I'm not sure yet if that will create a flower overload or not.

And up close with better color:

Hey all, I received my package from mouser882 yesterday but didn't have time to post before work.  She made me many super cute items.  My themes were: bicycles, crows/ravens, poppies, steampunk, and octopii. 

So let the pics begin!

In this photo there are the tentacle arm warmers, a steampunk wrist band with an applique skeleton key with little gear things, an adorable tote bag with poppies and poppy barettes, and a cute coin purse with a bike on it and some cute little birdy extras.  I think the coin purse will evolve to hold my tire patch kit because its the perfect size.   

And an action shot of the poppy barettes, including me making a goofy face.
And finally, this may be my favorite, the stuffed crow

wow, this is the best use of a woodburning thingamagidget I have seen! I love it when old craft forms get improved so that they are actually pretty.  Now I'm brainstorming.

Yay! I'm glad you liked everything and can't wait to get my package. I'm glad the apron fits because I just estimated and shrunk down from a very large apron I have.  The pillow is actually feathers by the way.

I finally sent my crafts out today! I'm so excited to have finished my first swap and hopefully mouser882 will like everything. 

I love many of the things posted here, including the boob bra and tree ring frame, but I have to say that having seen both half pint's and lunamadre's creations in real life, they are both amazing crafters.  (half pint convinced me to try the swap and I used her sewing machine for one of my creations) Lunamadre the bicycle clutch and both facinators are amazing, I even got to wear the skeleton one for a potential project! I also really liked how half pint's tiki magnets came out, super cute.

Now I am looking forward spending some time cleaning up my house, I'm sure my roommate will appreciate it as well Smiley

Thanks, we used Easy Craft resin and I think my friend said that it has less fumes than some of the other types.  It didn't seem bad, we did the mixing and pouring inside and let the pieces sit in another room with a fan.  If your lungs are sensitive though I would definitely wear a good mask to be on the safe side.

The first pendant is my first ever experiment with resin, so please be kind Smiley

I'm a bit of a dork so since we were using spoons as a base I decided to make a spoonful of sugar.  I used the chemical symbol for sucrose and a bit of glitter at the end of the spoon.

The second is a choker made from leather, lace and a brass flower button.  I think it still needs something, but I like it.

I just got this last saturday, I'm pretty happy.  It was my design idea but the artist drew it out, my drawing was really abstract.  The biggest bird in the middle is more stylized than I'd like and I might add another bigger leaf at the end that is disintegrating more.  That was my original plan but when I saw his drawing I wasn't sure if it would work or not.  Oh and the sun/moon/star I got about ten years ago on my 18th birthday, he just cleaned it up a bit.
