141  Definitely Decorative Dexter - Packloads of Pictures in Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 27, 2010 05:02:46 AM
This is the first shadowbox I have ever made, and the first in a planned series that will depict my favourite tv shows/movies in tiny crafty form.

This one is for 'Dexter' - a show which I absolutely love.  I used paint, paper, craft foam, double sided tape, plastic syringe, glass slides, string, plastic doll arm and a whole lot of plastic which I recycled from shopping bags and other such things.

EDIT: I added new photos - it's incredible the difference taking photos in the light makes.  Dark rooms = not great for photography - who knew?

142  Sith Code Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 26, 2010 03:40:31 AM
My mum recently gave me a whole mess of her old craft supplies, and so my foray into cross stitching began!  This is the first cross stitch I have ever done, and I completed it in two days, so I'm pretty gosh darned pleased with myself.  And I only made myself bleed once!  

I used 'stitchcross regular' for the text, and I pretty much made up the light-sabers as I went.  I like how the blades turned out, but I'd like to learn a better way to do the handles.

This is for my husband's growing collection of Star Wars ... well, everything really.  I don't have a frame big enough for it at home, but I guarantee that after my trip to IKEA next weekend, it will be on the wall Smiley

UPDATE:  I'm very very excited - geekcrafts.com have put my cross-stitch on their page!  Huzzah!

143  Darth Vader Mirror in Stenciling: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 26, 2010 03:28:27 AM

Title pretty much says it all Smiley  This was a Valentine's present for my husband - I made a stencil with contact paper and then painted the uncovered areas with black glass paint.  It's not very practical, but he likes it, and that's the main thing, right? Smiley

144  What's the time, Mr Vader? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by teaandcraft on: January 26, 2010 03:25:01 AM

My husband loves Star Wars, and Darth Vader in particular.  So, when I wanted to reconstruct another clock, I had a pretty good idea of what to do - his only request was that it should be black and white and "grungy".

Basically, this was a $5 wooden circle with clock mechanism, so it was pretty simple to alter.  I removed the hands (the mechanism wasn't removable), sanded, painted and stenciled, put the hands back on a voila!  One Darth Vader clock for Scott's Sith Space (I do love alliteration).

Sorry the picture is sideways, but I don't know how to rotate it.

This is a close up so you can see the gold detail I added to give it a bit more pizazz, also the hands are outlined in gold so you can see them better against the black of Darth Vader Smiley

Hope you like it!

145  Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by teaandcraft on: January 26, 2010 03:04:51 AM

This is a little bag of coins made with air-dry clay, stamps, and paint.  They were very easy to make, but I think they turned out well Smiley  I made these for my continually growing collection of Harry Potter inspired magical objects, and realised after I had made them that I really should have stamped values on them!  The gold ones are Galleons, silver are Sickles, and the bronze and Knuts.  Hope you like them! Smiley

146  Owls, dinosaurs, muffins - Oh my! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by teaandcraft on: January 26, 2010 02:57:32 AM

Hi, this is my first post on Craftster, and I hope I have put this in the right place!
For my birthday I received a folding agenda which was very useful but *very* ugly.  I didn't take a photo, but picture brown and gold swirls for a background with droopy looking flowers over the top.  Ew. 

I ripped out the notebook, calender and address book, recovered with paper, mod podged, added the notebook, calender and address book back, and added a new closing mechanism.

I designed the panels that I covered the agenda (and the separate books) in Illustrator; I drew the owl, muffin, speech bubble, cassette tape and lightbulb.  The dinosaur is from the 'ding-o-saurs' font, 2010 is in 'dead secretary', lightning bolt is 'sentai 30 dingbats', and lisa is in 'ss fun'.

I hope you like it! Smiley
