1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Danish cookie tins on: April 18, 2010 03:52:26 PM
Ever get that huuuge tin of Danish cookies that never end? I did, but the tin remains. I'd like to use it for storage but I'm not quite sure the best way to decorate.

Does paint work? Decoupage?

How do I make the tin look like an expensive storage piece?

2  COOKING / Dessert / Incredibly large and fancy gingerbread house on: August 09, 2007 10:39:24 PM
My last class in culinary school was Culinary Showpieces, which is just what the name suggests. Smiley We had to do gingerbread houses, which was such a fun winter project!

I did this with four other people in my group. Smiley Details include:

-Royal icing EVERYWHERE
-Colored sugar windows (I forget how we did that)
-An ice-cream cone tree
-Meringue smoke for the chimney
-Powdered sugar/royal icing snow

'Twas a labor of love and got us an A. Smiley

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ice Sculpture - bottle of Patron on: August 09, 2007 10:33:39 PM
This really does belong nowhere else. XD

Along with four of my classmates last winter did this for Culinary Showpieces. (I graduated from culinary school, btw.)

It was huge!

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Out of town wedding shower! (help plz!) on: August 07, 2007 03:28:58 PM
My friend from North Carolina is getting married and I am one of her bridesmaids. Unfortunately, ALL of her bridesmaids (including the MOH) are out of state! We plan on getting there a few days before the wedding but we're plotting a type of mini-shower, at least for the four of us.

Knowing all that, does anyone have any ideas that spring to mind? I'm still actively searching, but I figured since weddings include out-of-towners, you'd guys have some good thoughts. Smiley

I'm looking for gift ideas, games, anything you got. Smiley Thanks!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Decoupage fan art boxes! (Image heavy!) on: August 05, 2007 07:22:40 PM
This is my first official post here with pictures, so please be gentle. Smiley

I started painting boxes with designs for my friends and now I take people's fan art (with permission, of course) and theme boxes for them. Smiley

The collages are bad because I have bad photo-taking skills, but you'll get the idea.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, made with magazine clippings

Final Fantasy VII fan art (Fan art credits can be found here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/46334745/)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney box- my most recent. (Credits: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/58133643/)

And my favorite...

Discworld. Smiley (Credits: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/36994537/)

I also decorated a drawer for an Ikea box with Discworld fan art:

I wanted to share, since this is really the only visual art that I have a little talent in. XD;;;
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Aging paper help! on: February 02, 2007 07:28:15 PM
I'm making some old Victorian-esque Valentines, and I'm trying to age cardstock. I printed some photos out on said cardstock but when I rub whatever I'm using- the tea bag or coffee grounds in a paper towel- blurs the photo on the other side. I considered aging the paper first and then putting it through the printer, but will that damage the printer?

Or, does anyone know how to age an image on cardstock without it going blotchy?

Thanks in advance!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Victorian Valentines on: January 26, 2006 07:30:28 PM
Does anyone have any methods for making Victorian-esque Valentines? I assume it's just clippings glued together, but does anyone know where I can find high-quality vintage images? Or have any other sorts of ideas? The cards of old were so gorgeous and I'd love to replicate that.

My apologies if this is addressed somewhere else.

Thank you!
