601  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - JULY 2012 - CLOSED on: July 31, 2012 06:35:45 AM
I claim Mountains and Cloud for Local Coffee Shop.  Due 8/14.


I live in St. Louis, MO.  I love crafting, mainly with paper but dabble in other mediums.  I love the outdoors, gardening, reading, spending time with family and friends and most of the time I love work! I prefer no curse words, nothing gory,  and NO glitter.  Glitter glue is okay as it doesnt flake; our household is a glitter free space, you dont want me to get in trouble lol.

My themes:
tree of life
Land Rover Series IIA pic: 
Water (fountains, streams, oceans, lakes, puddles etc)
Cross or sacred hearts
Emotions (no word on the front, just in title on the back, kid appropriate)
Thank you in different languages-vibrant colors (put the language on the back)
Hot Air Balloons
Knock Knock jokes with a silly pic/drawing to go with

610  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Plain wood box, a gift for Jen on: July 28, 2012 10:05:55 PM
Finished product to get you excited:

Found a simple little plain wood box for a dollar at Goodwill.  Now it's a trinket box for my gf Jen.

I used acrylic craft paints, like Apple Barrel brand, Crayola Crayons, Delta Ceramcoat All Purpose Sealer, felt, Tacky Glue, tooth pick, craft knife and various paint brushes.

Colored on the top of the box with various colors of crayons.  Colored in very heavy and solid.

Painted the outside and then got impatient and dried with a blow dryer.

Let the paint dry before you "scratch".  Scratched Jen's name in the top with a toothpick and when that wasn't neat enough I used a craft knife.

Painted the inside, hit it with the blow dryer again.

Glued felt into the inside and on the bottoms of the feet.

Ta da!  It's simple but I like it.
