11  I just need some ideas in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: January 20, 2007 07:55:26 PM
this seemed like the logical place to put this because 1) it's a paper craft and 2) the found object is wood which is trees which is also paper.
anyways, it's just one part that i need some advice on. I found this chest of drawers while trashpicking and took it home to keep art/craft supplies. it's was boring and i wanted to toy around, and i think I've done well do far. here it is:



(one side and back)

Now, the back is the worst part. I want to do something amazing but i can't decide if I'd like to do a scene or just be random or what. suggestions? comments?

p.s. it looks so much better in person. the colors are so bright.

12  Re: I wanted my own "punk rock moto jacket" in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: December 17, 2006 06:54:16 PM
well, i guess it went over well... so here's my how to:

very hot (especially on you) and I like how you chose to do it in white.  
first of all, thanks for the compliments (everyone) and second of all, I've got to give credit to my boyfriend for the choice of white (he's an artist and definitely has got a way with colors).  we sometimes go into a store and play a game where he tries to pick out an outfit for me. (It's fun to see what he can do.) sometimes he's spot on... and sometimes not. But this time, way to go Brian! (He also is incredibly jealous of the jacket. he wants one.)

13  I wanted my own "punk rock moto jacket" (now with tut) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: December 16, 2006 06:32:30 AM
i think it turned out more 70's than punk rock... but it's the right decade, right?
i took a huge, white ladies blazer with shoulder pads, huge buttons, and everything, and transformed it with some pins, dark purple denim, and imagination.

sorry i forgot to take a before picture, but it was pretty bad... you can take my word on that.

and yes, it does zip up all the way if i want it to

14  a hero's apron in Needlework: Completed Projects by BethyG on: December 16, 2006 05:55:41 AM
Here's the story:my boyfriend's sister and her boyfriend(Kim and Steve) decided that they wanted to make funnel cakes. They knew that the temperature had to be hot, but their mistake was to try and make it boil. Bad Move! anyways the result was scorched and scornful oil, bellowing smoke and flame. (really, it did burst into flame a couple times) Anyways, Kim and Steve did not know what to do, but Brian (my brave boyfriend) was smart enough to run that pot outside. For that he shall always be remembered as a hero.

***Brian, if you have dared to read this far, STOP!***

for Christmas, i made him a "manly" apron, because he's gotten into cooking, and on one of the pockets, to commemorate his bravery, i have embroidered a flaming pot. (the basic idea for the pot came from Sublime Stitching btw)
here's a picture or two:

If anyone makes something similar, i'd love to see it

16  Local band's t-shirt now fits me in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: November 25, 2006 04:47:47 PM
don't you hate it when you go to a show and they are totally sold out of your size?
i think that my solution is a pretty good one though- and i got to use some of my leftover scraps of b/w striped fabric too.

i also want to give the guys in the band credit- they designed and screen printed all their own shirts!

17  i'm happy to wear the ideas of others (lots of pics- i'm sorry). in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: November 25, 2006 04:43:41 PM
i use tutorals all the time and i know you do too. i wanted to present my hard work but i promice to give credit where it is deserved.

(shows the t-shirt that i stole from my boy and the sleeves-nice and long like i like)

(attempts to show the length of the shirt- I'm pretty tall)

this basic idea runs rampent in the DIY circles- check http://www.whatthecraft.com/ or http://www.crafterbynite.com/home.html for those who rock it)

(i thought the little neck indent was a nice touch & it was my idea!)

(again- nice and long. it was once just a lowly short green shirt)

(same thing even if you can hardly see the arms- sorry)

i got this idea at http://www.ohmystars.net/ - it's really handy in adding length to too-short shirts and having more than just short sleeve shirts during the fall/winter.

This one is inspired by the almighty Karen O and i used it as part of a haloween costume.

one more now:

(ok, now i might have to break my promice- i believe i found the inspiration for this shirt at urban outfitters but i can't prove that with a picture. anyways, my point is that i found inspiration in a store)

well thank you for looking! i hope maybe i can inspire you like others have inspired me.
(these are all recons... by the way)

18  i couldn't let them go.. and now i don't have to (now w/ tut) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BethyG on: November 25, 2006 04:09:30 PM
once upon a time, there was a girl with a magnificently soft black shirt. It couldn't get any better... except one thing- the girl was very tall and the shirt was petite (more of a belly shirt actually). she kept it in her fabric bin for a long time until a sketch in her journal inspired her to use that shirt! here's the happy ever after:

i'd love to hear what you think. (i've got a few doubts but in general i love it.)

19  Couture Lunchbox? maybe so in Completed Projects by BethyG on: November 09, 2006 07:34:41 PM
once apon a time, this was a $4 metal lunchbox i got in Canada but it was bright blue and had cartoon bears standing on flowery ledges in front of Niagra Falls. My boy viciously made fun of it everytime he saw it and so i decided to cover it. I used magazines, newspaper, and Mod Podge(stuff of wonder!) It's been a while so it's got some wear and tear, so please forgive that.

All the newspaper is food reviews - and i made a point of not showing anyone's eyes. i love it and get compliments on it all the time... even if i am a college student carying around a lunch box. i'm also a vegetarian and it's hard to get a good lunch at a place that thinks that all vegetarians eat fish! (i've never even liked fish!)
(if i was one of those certified Couture houses in paris... Then I could really claim this was couture- but i'd say it is a proper art project.)

20  Montage Palate Shirt/ Puzzle Shirt (4 pics) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by BethyG on: November 09, 2006 07:28:20 PM
i've been working on this for a while- i was working on an art project a while back where we were supposed to use a palate of either cool or warm colors and i thought it'd be interesting to apply the same idea to a shirt. also, to use pieces of other shirts/ fabric and sort of piece the shirt together like a puzzle.
comments appreciated. (i'm seriously thinking about starting some sort of handmade clothes business so also constructive criticism/good comments on my ideas/ability/talent are wecome)

it's not been washed yet so it's wrinkly but it'll fit really nicely when it's washed!
