1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 74 ENTRIES / Flying Rocks on: May 07, 2012 10:27:20 AM
Years ago I bought some lovely blue paper to make wedding invitations from. Well five years, one wedding and two kids later the paper was still rolled up in my craft corner. So I thought that this would be the perfect time to pull it out.

I started by splashing a bleach and water mixture on a test piece, just to see what would happen. Well it looked like lovely clouds. So I pulled out a full sheet and tried it again.

And of course it didn't look as nice as the test piece. Sad So I did the next best thing and cut up the test piece. I then fraied the edges and glued it to the full sheet and got some lovely textured clouds.

So paper and scissors, check.

Next I did a little sketch of a bird in flight and went to work filling in the bird with stones.

Rocks, check.

Very cool.

I love Gorilla Glue. (and its cousin Gorilla tape) It's great for so many things. My only wish is that it dried clear.

Closer look

To make the curly bits, I cut Popsicle sticks into strips, soaked them in water overnight to make them pliable and than wrapped them around various jars, cans, pens, Russian stacking dolls, anything really. After drying overnight I unwrapped my curly Popsicle sticks.

I had a cheap plastic mask that I covered with fun paper and placed my sticks. Oh I guess I painted them first. After everything was placed it was missing something so I pulled out the glitter and pom poms. The mask is edged with pipe cleaners and the stick holding it is Popsicle sticks as well.

I hope you like it.

Hmm I think my popsicle stick supply might need some replenishing when this is done...
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Wooden Soldier help on: February 14, 2011 09:59:57 AM
I am desperately looking for wooden soldiers about 8" tall. My google-fu is weak and I can't seem to find anything.

I need t 10 of them for a prop in a play and I am looking for raw wood ones so we can paint them however we want, but still no luck.

I am thinking blank nutcrackers might work as well, but I can't even find those.
