Looks great! The glass looks like crystal waves. And it also doubles as an improvised weapon! =D

Poor painting skills? aww, shush! They're fab. I want a pair! I have some acrylic paint and some shoes I want to jazz up. I have a few ideas, and will post some pics as soon as I'm done.

You've inspired me to get cracking  Smiley

I can't wait to see! =D

Love, love, LOVE these.  Already hit "This Rocks".  I would love to do this, but I'd be terrified of ruining my hard work and scuff them up!

I'm a bit worried too. This project took way more time than I expected so I'd hate it being messed up but I can always fix them, plus some Art isn't meant to last.

I've been paint on and off for two weeks and finally they are done! I've had these shoes for a while and they are the comfiest heels ever! But the heels had become scuffed after being my go-to heel for the past two or three years. After picking up a similar looking heel at the thrift store for two bucks I finally plucked up the courage to risk ruining my favorite shoes. But I didn't ruin them and personally I think they look fabulous considering my poor painting skills.

I painted them using acrylic paint. Afterward I sprayed it with a seal. I'm all about fixing things instead of replacing them, so the the paint is partly functional. I'll definitely wear these a lot longer painted than if the scuffs got worse. They were starting to look a little worn out.

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: WALK TO Lucas Arts Adventure Game Swap. LOOK AT Lucas Arts Adventure Game Swap. on: June 07, 2010 04:14:41 PM
omg, it heartbreaks me that I have absolutely no money for this swap. Like literally no money. Like I have 3 bucks in my bank account and no job. 

I'm the biggest grim fandango fan ever! i did a painting of in-game art from the Blue Casket. http://thecrafteteria.blogspot.com/search/label/Grim%20Fandango

Anybody know how to get an old copy of Grim Fandango to play on Vista or XP? My bf used an emulator on XP but it made the controls almost impossible and was just irritating in general. I know I played it before on my old computer with XP with a patch and not much trouble but it didn't work on my BF's computer. ugh. I miss this game!

So how did you bind the flowers together into a bouquet without squishing them? I can't really seem to put mine together without squishing them up.

EDIT: Aw, I feel dumb. I realized that ya'lls bouquet's are bendable because you used wire for stems. I decided to use sticks as bigger stems. Sticks aren't bendable. AACKK! Maybe if I soak them in water I can bend them the way I want them to go.

I tried using sticks for my first flower actually. didn't work out, flower kept falling off.

Also I used floral foam for the arrangement.

my brother's shuffle had the same thing happen, but it could still be used as a usb drive but it never played music again. You should try it out and see if that would still work and you could decorate it some how.

I love the look of this... but I am a little OCD and afraid to start trying to make them without asking a question or two...  About how many petals do you use of each size?  What sizes do you use?  Did you just freehand the petals.  They are a great shape!  Thanks!

I usually do a few of each size. It's not precise. I free handed the petals.
