I got this cute little ATC today from audio for my "your favorite song" theme.

Its from "pyramid song" by radiohead

The wings are glittery and really pretty! Thanks so much audio!!! I've had a really rough week so far with family crises so this was a great little pick-me-up!

105  Ouija Cheese Box in Completed Projects by mandykaye on: December 19, 2016 03:29:57 PM

I got my hands on some wooden cheese boxes from a somewhat local cheese shop for like $3 a piece!

I immediately had this project in mind when I saw it! My sister-in-law likes scrap-booking and taking photos and you can never have enough good storage for your supplies, so I created this ouija board/box! It was sort of a pain to burn all the lettering, but totally worth it! I ended up liking it so much, I may have a hard time giving it to her lol!

So, after stenciling and burning the letters, numbers, etc., I took a torch and burned around the edges of the top. I then applied some polyurethane clear coat finish. For the bottom part, I blended some brown and bright blue acrylic paints to give sort of an antique patina to it. I then clear-coated that as well.

For the inside, I just left bare with a bit of upholstery material to the bottom. With the humidity we get here in Michigan, I didn't want anything that could be sticky inside since she will most likely have photos and papers stored in there.

I'm sure if I had some hardware or other bits to add to it, it would look even better, but I was on a budget and using what I had.

In the end, I think she will like it!

Thanks for looking!!!

107  Wood slice ornaments in Winter Holidays by mandykaye on: December 10, 2016 11:31:39 AM
I was in the ornament swap and was inspired to make some wood slice ornaments! I've been wanting to make some and this got me to actually get going.

I was lucky to have a piece of cedar that was already peeled, sanded, and kiln dried, and ready to be cut into slices! I also had some juniper that I had cut down this fall, so I used a couple pieces of that. That turned out to be a little buggy, so I treated it with some borax and kept it for myself.

Here are the finished products...

First is the cedar piece I made for my swap partner...

And the other side...

And here are the rest that I will keep or give to family!

And the other side...(these are glittery!)

These were done by using a standard craft wood burner tool and some acrylic craft paint. I used little screw eye hooks and ribbon to hang with. I got inspiration for the images from Pinterest and some adult coloring books Wink .
