1  Floating Picture Frame in CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES by Goddess Abby on: December 11, 2005 06:55:34 PM
My inspiration for this project came from all those $20 frames you see at target that make the pictures look like they are floating.  Well, I made these ones with two pieces of plexiglass.  (I already had the plexi but it probably would have cost around $2 for the amount that I used.) I drilled some holes, then I screwed them together with flat sided machine screws (98 cents) and some wing nuts ($1.96).  I hot glued magnets (already had) on the back, but really you could use any hanger.  I also sanded the edges of the glass and colored them red with a sharpie to make them stand out a little more.  You can't really get the whole effect from the picture, but trust me, it looks awesome in real life.  

I needed some help from lady liberty because I only had two magnets, and plan to get more so that it will stay up better.

Here's a picture with the flash.  

The back.

Sorry the pictures are a little fuzzy, they never look that way on the 1" display on the camera.

I can't believe that I didn't see this thread until now.  I absoluetly LOOOOVE it!  I just wanted to ask some advice from all you hipsters out there.  Once upon a time I had my hair short, longer in the front, short enought to spike it in the back.  Since then I have resisted temptation and have grown my hair out.  I can resist temptation no longer.  My hair is very fine, limp, and straight.  I have a round face and having long hair like this, it just looks matted to my head and weighed down.  Here are some pics of what I have to work with and pics of the type of thing I'm looking for. 

Just look at how unhappy I am with this mat of hair.

The back....ignore the ass.

Hair cuts I like.

I'm consider dying it too, which I have been doing ever since I was 12.  The dying part is pretty boring right now too.  Maybe a platinum blonde with stripes of black or purple.  I got the pictures of haircuts from http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=madradhair

Sorry it's so image heavy!  Hopefully it doesn't take forever to load.

So, do you guys think any of these would work for my face/hair type?  Thanks in advance.

3  Re: my health teacher assigned me+my friend a project to paint the health room...... in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by Goddess Abby on: December 06, 2005 04:22:43 AM
I think that you might want to incorporate something having to do with the class.  It might be kind of neat to incorporate the red cross as part of your design, or do stencils of things that are "health" related.  Your teacher might appreciate it more if you put a lot of thought into it.  Otherwise, if you just want to do something fun to look at or a combination of both.  Here are some simple geometric wall things that I found that might be up your alley.

This might be a neat idea to incorporate the red cross into.  You could make different sized crosses kind of like they have different sized rectangles.

Or just for fun....

As for techniques all I have is get a lot of painter's tape and wash the wall before you paint.

4  Re: Copper Wire Link Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Goddess Abby on: December 03, 2005 05:50:31 PM
Thanks all for the comments!  I free-handed the links with the aid of needle nosed pliers.  I looked for copper findings at the Hob Lob and couldn't find any.  I guess it just never occured to me to make my own.  Maybe I'll have to alter it some after I pay with the whole making my own findings thing.  The necklace is comprised of individual lightening-ish shaped links.  I made it so the middle part of the link would be a vertical axis and the sides kind of bend around and come to the middle of the center.  A picture is worth a thousand words, so after trying to explain it, I just whipped one up in illustrator.  The blue bits are jump rings, the tan thing is the wire and the gradient thing in the middle is supposed to be the bead, dig?

I haven't noticed any green patina rub-off from the necklace yet.  The longest I've worn it was probably 5 hours.  The only down side is that sometimes it can get caught on your hair.  I noticed that this problem is minimized by putting the necklace on AFTER you brush/style your hair.

5  Copper Wire Link Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Goddess Abby on: November 29, 2005 02:03:14 AM
I have mastered the art of making these links.   And now have caluses.  Anyway, I made two of these necklaces out of 20 gauge copper wire, 4mm jump rings and beads.  One is for a Christmas Gift and the other one I made because, like I said, I have mastered the art of making these and had more wire left.  Let me know what you think.

Me modeling.

I saw a wallet like this in a gift shop somewhere.  I decided I could make it cheaper, well free + time.  So here it is, the juice carton wallet

The closure is the actual cap from the juice carton

9  Re: twisted wire beaded branch necklace - tutorials wanted! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Goddess Abby on: October 20, 2005 09:15:58 PM
Sorry in advance for the blurry pictures.  I made these earrings and bracelet last night.  I used the tutorial from HGTV mentioned above and used the same sort of process for the earrings.  It was really easy and I just did it while watching TV.  I might go back and put more branches and beads in, but the wire gets tangly after so many branches.  The earrings were inspired by a link that I found of some post on here.  I can't find the post now but here's the link

Here's the bracelet on

With it off

And the matching earrings

Let me know what you think.
