Here's a sketch of how
I coiled the wire for the back of the pendants. 
I glued everything together with FabriTac glue.

Thanks for looking!

12  Valentine's Day Centerpiece in Valentine's Day by pattiewack on: February 10, 2007 09:51:03 AM

I did these yummy candy trees and orbs for my Valentine's Day table. 
They're not edible, but they make a huge statement, I think. 
I wanted something romantic and sweet for a girl's party.
What do you think?

13  Glass Valentine's Pendants in Valentine's Day by pattiewack on: February 09, 2007 10:24:33 PM

I finally made some glass pendants!  I found the images in an Alloy catalog and an Urban Outfitters catalog in the pics showing different styles of t-shirts.  My family loved them, so guess who's getting them for gifts?

For Valentine's Day I'm going to put them on cords or ribbon with valentine charms, and then put them in cards and maybe make some matching boxes.  I found some cool stickers and lovey dovey stuff at Hobby Lobby today on sale at 30% off, so that really made my day.

There is a tutorial on my website if you want the instructions.
Thanks for looking!

14  Decoupaged Bust! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pattiewack on: February 08, 2007 11:52:07 PM

What do you think?
I decoupaged magazine clippings
all over a bust that I had,
which was just sitting in my bedroom
with hats piled on top of it.

I don't know if it's ART,
or just silly, but I love it.

I painted my bowling pin before beading it.  Krylon has a paint that is just for plastic, and I used it because I knew it would grab hold of the pin.  It took 3 coats.  I let it dry overnight.  Mine wasn't toooo beat up, just a couple of dents in it.  Then I covered it with the adhesive sheets.  I put pics on my blog and a project page on my site so you can see the steps, if that helps.

The project page is:
There is a pic of some other things like a belt buckle and compact that I beaded on the project page.

I would LOVE to see it when you're done!

Pin-ups are hot.

Where did you find that picture of the girl anyhow?  Thats the first bowling pin-up girl I have seen.

I got the pic from this website:
She started out looking like this,
and I added a skirt and changed her
hair color and legs in photoshop.

There are four bowling pin-ups on that website..

17  Beaded Bowling Pin in Completed Projects by pattiewack on: January 13, 2007 10:31:00 PM
I am working on my craft segment for Monday morning
on Channel Six here in Tulsa on the CBS station.
LeAnne Taylor and Carina Sonn asked me to
help them decorate a bowling pin!

It is for a charity bowling tournament for the
Tulsa Big Sisters organization to raffle off.
We decided that since it's a bowling "pin" ...
that it needs a "pin-up" girl

It took 3 coats of spray paint to cover up
all the bowling alley marks and the stripe.
The next thing I did was decoupage the pin-up girl
and the logo to the pin. Then I applied double-adhesive
sheets to the entire pin.

I decided to do the whole bowling pin in red,
white and blue beads.  I'm putting different sizes
of beads on each section for more texture.
The little bitty beads don't have holes in them,
so they are absolutely beautiful.

I love it! I accidentally got a few stray beads
in the wrong sections, so I'm having to flick
them out with a craft knife.

It's as done as it's gonna get until Monday morning.
I am dying to finish beading the girl,
but it will just have to wait. When I do the segment,
I am going to let LeAnne and Carina peel off
the pink sheet that's covering the girl, and dip it
into clear beads for the viewers to see.

Tell me what you think...

I do have a big problem though. 
I used adhesive sheets that I've had for
several years, and cannot find them
online or in a store anywhere. 
Does anyone know where I can get more???

I totally LOVE your art.  And I love wonder woman, too. 
I drew some girl heroes for my tassel and pompom tools. 
Check them out.  Yours is SO cool. 
More Andy Warhol, I think. 
Awesome job, and I'll bet your wife is crazy about you...
