2  rockabilly tattoo cosmetic case? :D in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by johnarae89 on: September 08, 2008 07:55:48 PM
i love like.. old school sailor style tattoos.. and jsut the history of tattoos in general.. so i thought i would start putting some designs on things... but what? so i went to goodwill the other day, just lookin.. where i got amazingly cute retro flower plates and a few mugs, an adorable little end table that i just spray painted red in the parking lot (haha, im living in dorms!) and then i had spotted this cute little cosmetic case.. cream.. kinda fake alligator covered.. and i left it there because it was 7.99.. (i'm cheap!). so i went back thinking.. i gotta get that case and paint it.. and when i went back.. it was yellow tags were 50% off! so yay!! new amazing cosmetic case for 4 bucks! 

what do you all think? what would you suggest putting over it so it wont scratch/flake off because of the shiny and smooth fake alligator fabric?

LEATHER.. all the time.. and well.. i cant afford to buy a whole new leather wardrobe and frankly..i dont want to.. lol but i'm thinkin that the preppy wardrobe i have now just wont cut it.. soooo.. i'm lookin for ideas.. right now i have thoughts of like.. hoodies with grommets and stuff, tanks with some interesting straps, denim skirts, kewl screened tee's with like bikes and pin-up girls on 'em.. i'm really open to anything, i just want to look the part and not like some idiot college kid just hangin out because i wanna be kewl lol.... i am a fairly curvy girl (about size 14/16)..umm.. so yeah, any ideas would be so fantastically kewl and i would for surely post pictures of anything i end up making..


heres a picture of me, just so you guys can get an idea of my figure.. it might help the ideas flow.. this was a senior picture (terrible) and i've gained about 10-15 lbs since.. maybe?.. i dunno, anyways! i'm curvy lol!!!!!! (sorry if this pic is super big too, i just had it conveniently in my photobucket)

9  man, i've been on a beading spree in Beads: Completed Projects by johnarae89 on: March 22, 2007 04:31:40 PM
i dont know why, i used to bead like crazy when i was younger but then stopped.. and i just recently pulled out all of my beading stuff again and this is what i got.. everything is pretty simple and easy, but i'm bored so i'll post it all Smiley

South palm beach

action shot:



no name Sad.. it actually has these clear and pearly berry colored beads along with black metallic and antique black onyx beads on it.. just doesn't look like it from the picture

matching necklace


i also had a purple "cha cha" bracelet.. but my aunt stole it before i could even get a picture.. the moonshine one is being bought for an auction to benefit cancer survivors

i'd love to hear what everyone thinks! sorry for the huge load of pictures!
