3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Remember Pogs on: May 28, 2012 03:50:26 PM
Remember pogs? On one of my adventures, I came across a huge stash of pogs. I know I loved playing them as a kid, and then our school banned them : ( because they said it encouraged gambling, but it was fun while it lasted. Lately, I have nostalgia for 90s style and whipped these up, I have many many many more pogs...

I had some baggy band tees, cropped them at the bottom and the top so that it comes off the shoulder, and handsewed some lace. Hope you like! : )

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Sparkly Tattoo Tutorial on: September 09, 2011 01:41:28 PM

What you'll need:

♥ An inkjet printer
♥ Microsoft Word or a similar program
♥ LUSH's Shimmy Shimmy Massage Bar (or a similar product) I just wish the sparkles showed up on camera!
♥ Computer Crafts Inkjet Tattoo Sheet


Step 1: In Word, fill up a whole page with all the images you are going to want & print. Mine looks like this:


My images are of, Lily Munster, Frida Kahlo, Louis Wain paintings, a cover of The Bell Jar, and a mermaid : )

Step 2: After letting your printed sheet dry, you can cut out your images.

Step 3: Pick where you wanna put it, remove the (sticky side of the paper), press in for 20 seconds or so. I recommend getting someone to help you with this part so the tat can stay straight

Step 4: Sparkle time! After your tat is set, warm up your massage bar so the glitter will go over the tat easily, but i wished it showed up better on camera. And viola!


Im excited to do the other ones after this one comes off!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Whimsy Crown (image heavy) on: August 15, 2009 11:50:15 PM

I finished this recycled whimsy crown a little while ago, and i'm so excited about it!

This piece was made from almost all recycled items (the exception is the resin part).

It is chock-full of vintage buttons, beads and ribbons, and many things i've collected over the years. (Including glow-in-the-dark stars and origami stars i've made from recycled paper). The resin piece is of the lovely Theda Bara, and the crown i used is the leftover binding of a dayplanner.

My friend Caity in the crown!

The picture of Theda Bara I used for the Resin piece


10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Frida Kahlo Resin Brooch on: July 11, 2009 10:06:05 PM
I just finished this big Frida brooch. It didn't turn out perfect, considering the improper mold i used. (But it's just for me, so i don't care)

It's my favourite painting of hers...
