11  Fafi stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by darcangel on: June 16, 2005 09:17:28 PM
my method for her was exacto-knifing on contact paper, then spray painting in the black lines. i love using spray paint on shirts, it's working really well! the shirt is biege, by the way. what do y'all think?

i've been playing around with making little rings too. here's one that came out alright. i think it's cute Smiley

i just found a little bag of jump rings lying around, and was inspired to make some quick earrings.

13  Bulletin Board and a headboard...of sorts. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by darcangel on: April 21, 2005 10:38:39 PM
do these even count as crafts? let's find out...

just a bulletin board with a 1" frame, which i painted red. i then masking taped off the outermost edge of the cork itselt and painted that black. then threw up memorabilia that was black white and red, and kept them all in the middle of the board, away from the edges.

then this monstrosity is acting as the present headboard for my bed (read: mattresses). it's simply a huge collection of magazine pages with pretty girls, which might be viewed as kind of weird since i'm a straight girl but really, i just think they're pretty- and teen magazines are my guilty pleasure.

what do you guys think? comments?

14  Re: Pixalator.. in Completed Projects by darcangel on: April 20, 2005 10:11:33 PM
i totally made one of these tonight and it is AWESOME. it's so cool to just leave the TV on mute with the pixalator in place. it's like a lava lamp.

the only thing i did differently is i cut the rolls into fourths, so the pixalator is thinner. and the frame is only a thin piece of cardboard. i also used paper instead of fabric. cha:

i just propped it up against the TV for the picture, so it's not covering the whole screen, but you get the idea:

so thanks for the great idea!!! i highly reccomend this project to anyone because it's just so cool and easy, y'all...just...just do it.

15  home made stickers!! now with toutorial!! in Completed Projects by darcangel on: April 11, 2005 11:09:35 AM
so i swiped a whole bunch of vinyl sheets from the signshop where i work and now i'm working on methods to make stickers without all the fancy equiptment they have. please leave comments!!!

it's very simple - TOUT:
print out or draw your image and cut off the excess paper. cut a piece of vinyl slightly bigger, and put the vinyl underneath:

tape them down to a cutting matt:

cut along the edges of your image. make sure you get the corners really well because it'll be a b*tch to fix later on.

take off the top layer (tape and paper) so only the vinyl is left. you may need to cut the tape a little to do this because it's stick to the vinyl around the outter edges. it's okay:

plaster the whole thing with masking tape. make sure to overlap the pieces. i go both vertical and horizontal so it's definitely not going anywhere:

peel the whole thing off the matt, making sure you don't lose any back pieces. taa-daa!! you made a sticker, ready for aplication!

again, very simple.
just peel away the backing pieces of the parts you want to be the sticker.
make sure the surface is clean and dry.
stick it starting at one side and working your way to the other, pressing it down to avoid air bubbles underneath.

my finished products:

16  what to do with these 2" painted tiles??!! in What the heck can I do with THIS? by darcangel on: March 29, 2005 09:57:52 AM

so i was inspired by a few people's posts to paint on tiles that i have lying around. they're 2" square. so i did little paintings (they're not totally done) and bought some magnets to super glue to the back, but really, the tiles are too heavy and i'm afraid if i make them magnetic and put em on the fridge, they'll fall and break. i was wondering if anyone  here wanted to suggest something else i could do with these little guys? i'm searching around craftster for ideas, but i thought i'd post anyway Smiley

thanks, you guys!

20  beaded wire bracelets - with tutorial!! in Beads: Completed Projects by darcangel on: February 03, 2005 01:05:13 AM
i saw these for sale in a market in france for well over 60 dollars each, and, as many of you crafters out there might do, i thought "oh man, i can make those...easy..."

(agh, i'm apologising in advance for the crappy pictures...i tried. really i did.)

--->> You will need:
                like a yard of 24 gauge wire
                a length of 18 gauge wire, about 2 feet long
                about 50 small to medium sized beads. this project is great for using up all those mix-matched glass beads.

-- begin by bending the 18-gauge (thicker) wire in half, and from that bend, create a little squiggle a-like-a-so:

-- it takes a little bit of trial and error to get the size *just* right, but when you get it to wrap comfortably around your wrist, make a swirl on each side, and then wrap them right there with the thin wire.

--begin by winding a little of the 24-gauge (thin) wire around one side..

-- thread a few beads on the thin wire and slid 'em down.

-- wrap the wire around the other side *twice* to help secure it.

-- and, you know, you'll see, when it wraps along, now it's in the back, so just leave beads off the back, wrap if around again, and then put beads on, so they're all in the front.

-- at the end, just wrap the thin wire around a whole lot.

-- so here's the inside/back

-- and here's a crappy picture of the fronts!!!

comments!! please!! and if you try this project, please post pictures of finished products!
