22  Giant Bird's Nests in Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: November 08, 2012 12:40:43 PM
My mom is a kindergarten teacher and this year the theme of her classroom is birds. Last year she had a treasure chest for the kids to pick prizes from. This year she's got Treasure Nests. Smiley I have a mud dauber's nest too, but I don't have pics of that one. I covered it in plaster to look like mud and then spray painted it brown.

The first one is supposed to look like straw or something like it.

This one is a magpie nest, that's why it's got lots of little bits stuck in it.

They're about a foot in diameter and about eight inches deep.

24  Giving Tree for school supplies in Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: October 30, 2012 03:43:38 PM
My mom asked me for a Giving Tree for the kindergarten class at her school. The teachers wanted a tree that they could pin cards with supplies written on them for the parents to take and buy. They needed it about four feet tall, with clothes pins for branches...and in two days.

I started with a curtain rod set in a bucket of plaster. I used dowel rods, clothes pins, Rigid Wrap plaster strips, foil, polymer clay, brown paint and dollar store leaves.

Every step was more exciting than the last for this project. Every time it looked more like a tree I fell in love! This project was incredibly satisfying. Smiley

25  Ultra Bright Rainbow Eyes Tutorial in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 26, 2011 01:43:11 PM
Hey yall, heres a new rainbow look for you! I have rearranged the colors and intensified the look. I wear this all the time because I wear a visor and glasses at work. I feel like my eyes disappear so I wear dramatic make up. I love all the compliments I get and this look gets the most. (Actually, I went to work after writing this tutorial and got more compliments than ever!  Cheesy )
I will try to find/take new pics to add to this tutorial of the missing steps. I have no idea what happened! Boooo!

Start by applying your foundation and priming your eyes. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Its kind of expensive for the initial investment but youll get more than your moneys worth out of this. The colors would not be this intense without it.

Using a brush, apply yellow to the inner third of the top half of your lid to the crease. Fade a little bit of the yellow in to the middle of the top half of the lid to help blend the orange when you apply it.

Apply the orange from the middle to the outer third of your eye. Bring it out past the corner of your eye a little bit and about inch from your brow. Youll be blending this later so dont be afraid that you look like a clown at first. Wink

Use an intense pink in your crease and blend it upwards into the orange about halfway up to your brow. I use a couple of colors in the crease in this tutorial. Its all about layering here

I forgot to take a picture, but its not that hard here. Put a nice bright green on the inner third of your lid. Ive used a lot of blues on this look, but Ive gotten the most compliments using this bright aqua for my blue. Apply the blue to the middle of your lid. Carefully blend the green onto the blue with one or two strokes. Really be careful here because you can over blend them and not be able to see the different colors. You can see here that I winged out the blue a litte into the crease so I have a guideline for the next two colors.
(I can't find the pic!!!)

On the outer third of your eye use a medium shade of purple. Bring the color out a little to make the look a little smoky.

I use a bluey shade of purple to blend the pink and purple together a little bit in my crease. You dont have to do this, but I like that it makes the look even more vampy.
(where is this pic too?)

On the outer V and half of your lower lid use a dark purple and on the inner half bring back that lime green.

Eyeliner, brows and mascara complete your eyes. I usually use a natural or light pink on my lips with this look because its so bright already. Accessorize and enjoy the compliments!  Smiley

List of products used:
Primer- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Yellow MAC Bright Future
Orange- Hot Topic Orange
Pink- HiP Duo Brazen
Green- NYX (the specific name is all worn off, I use it a lot)
Blue- Sally Girl aqua
Purple- Sally Girl purple
Blue Purple- HiP Duo Reckless
Dark Purple- HiP Duo Reckless
Liner- Cover Girl water proof black (I sweat a lot at work and the primer + water proof  liner = less smudging)
Mascara- Cover Girl Lash Blast black

I just saw this look and Im going to have to try this!!! Oh yeah!!

26  Coral Reef Picture Frame img heavy in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 08, 2011 02:33:28 PM
Hi y'all! I know I've been gone a long long time, but here's a project I've been working on this last month. I started it a long time ago and am probably finished with it. I was going to keep adding on to it until my mom's birthday, but I'm sort of out of room to add things haha. I think.... Smiley Anyway, here it is.

The whole thing:


I didn't have internet when I did the whale so I made it generic

Some in progress pics:
Pic of the tiny clownfish

A few extreme closeups


The electric eel glows in the dark!!! (so do the ghost shrimp)

Oh yeah, so does the spikey green plant!

I always put an oyster with a pearl on my mom's projects.

I love the brain coral and the little clownfish took hours.

LOVE the purple coral, and the red and white coral is pretty in person.

I hope she likes it. Smiley

29  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: July 23, 2010 12:39:47 PM
I decided that I was tired of the side bangs I've had for a couple of years. My hair grows so fast that these may not last long but it's something different for now. I've finally gotten used to the washed out pink of my hair but it'll be purple again in a week or so when my dye gets here!

Here's what I started with:

In progress:

I liked the shaggy look of the bangs, but I was going for something more dramatic so I cut them a little further. I used a razor comb to get most of the cut done then used regular scissors to finish it off. They're still just a little choppy and I'm pretty happy with them.

Coupla different styles

Now for the purple soon! wheee!

30  Foundation Tutorial (img heavy) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by teapotdnky on: May 29, 2010 01:02:57 PM
First off, everything I know about makeup I learned from youtube. Here are a couple of tutorials on how to do foundation. These are 3 of the artists I subscribe to. I like Petrilude because I need heavier duty makeup. Watch some of their videos and you'll be hooked!

Dewy Glowing Foundation Tutorial
Petrilude (drag tutorial)

This is how I do my foundation, remember you can stop at any step and add your powder. If you're not comfortable wearing this much makeup then make it accessable to you. I get people asking how I get my skin to look like it does and my secret is LOTS of foundation! Hahaha! Allhttps://www.craftster.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/ of this is drugstore makeup except the yellow concealor which is Mary Kay.

The things I need to cover are rosacia, broken capilaries, blemishes, age spots, stubble, 5 o' clock shadow and freckles.  

Start with a foundation of your choice. I like the Dream Mousse stuff because it's full coverage and doesn't budge.

I mix a little foundation with my concealor to warm it up and make it less yellow. Put a tiny dab of each on the back of your hand and mix them with a brush before putting them on. It warms the makeup up and makes it easier to apply. Cover any spots you need to, and add some around your nose to tone down the redness. Even if you don't think it's that bad, do this, it makes a big difference!

Next add a light concealor under your eyes and blend it out. I put it between my redness on my cheeks and under my eyes and blend it out from there to cover as much as possible.

Use your favorite blush on the apples of your cheeks and bring it up to the temples. I contour a little bit with a bronzer and I also contour my nose to make it less round and bulby!  Cheesy

Use a brush to apply a powder to set everything and add your brows. I use a light colored powder for even more coverage, but translucent powders are good too.

This kind of thing is trial and error. You need to experiment and play with things to find out what works best for you.
Hope this was useful!  Grin

Top it off with some fab eye makeup and lipstick and hit the town!
