91  Re: Halloween/Witchie/Samhain/Day of the Dead swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by TrashedClothing on: October 22, 2006 05:37:51 PM
I posted in the original post rather than the gallery. Oops. Here it all is again:

I just drove an hour to mom's to get my package from Carol. Everything is really really awesome. I am hoping she has pictures because my stupid power supply on my computer crapped out and I won't have it fixed for a few days.

Here's a recap:
The coolest skull potholders EVER!!
An awesome wreath sporting a Night of the Living Dead quote that is absolutely going on my door the second I get home.
Some killer handpainted pumpkin ornaments
TONS of candy. Mmmmmmm

All in all, I am SO happy I signed up for this swap cause I couldn't have asked for better stuff. Thank you SO much Carol! YOu rule!

93  Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by TrashedClothing on: October 19, 2006 05:26:33 PM
Not sure if I'm putting this question in the right spot but for all of you kids out there who have tattoos on your chest, any insight about what I'm in for?  I'm going next week to have a very large chest piece done that will stretch from a little above my collar bone down to my cleavage. 

Painful?  Bizarre?  Too freakish to ever go there again?  Any info would be appreciated. 

All I have to say is OUCH! This took 6 hours and when he got to the top it felt like I was on fire. It was well worth it though because I sure as hell love this piece. If you're driving, careful for the seatbelt. I could have cried when it rubbed up against me. Can't wait to see it when it's done!! Good luck!!  Grin

95  More bunny slip-ons in Shoes: Completed Projects by TrashedClothing on: September 18, 2006 10:47:09 AM
So I am totally in love with the first pair I painted so I figured what the hell, let me paint another pair. After finishing them, I realized it looks like I was drunk when I did them. I don' think I did such a good job on this pair and the colors in the rainbow came out WAY darker than I expected. Boo! Anyway, I'll stop complaining and show you already. Hope someone likes them. haha

96  The little bunny slip-ons and some skull & star ones too! Yay Target! in Get Product and Website Opinions by TrashedClothing on: September 15, 2006 05:30:37 AM
So it's been raining which sucks, but it allows me to put my focus back on painting with acrylic rather than sitting outside inhaling resin and spraypaint(eewww). I went to Target and bought 5 of these pairs of shoes on clearance for $3.98. They also came in white/navy and navy/pink...those are in the making though. I absolutely love these shoes and I'm kinda thinking I might keep them for myself. This is only my second pair of shoes. Please let me know what you think and if anybody has any ideas of what I should charge for something similar, please let me know. I was thinking $25 maybe?? Anyway, here they are(plus the first pair I made. Just found a picture!!)

All that's left is some clearcoat when the stupid rain finally lets up. Thanks so much for looking!  Grin

97  My first try....and not so bad. in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by TrashedClothing on: September 13, 2006 08:34:48 PM
So I can't sleep EVER and I decided I had a bunch of crap to make soap so I gave it a whirl. My boyfriend insisted he wanted bugs so the blue is lavender and the red is apple. Boring, but cute. The two on top smell amazing and I worked really hard to get it right. It is eucalyptus mint with fresh eucalyptus. I made about 8 bars of that, but the 2 in the photos were the only ones that looked normal. Haha. Hope you like!

98  Lots & Lots of pendants. Yay! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TrashedClothing on: September 13, 2006 08:32:05 PM
So, I've been crafting like a fiend lately and conveniently my friend owns a bar 3 blocks from my house. He's been stocking up the bottle caps for me and I'm finally putting them to use. Also, I finally was able to hunt down some shrinky dink paper. I'm having a lot of fun making all of these. Let me know what you think!!

Thanks for looking!!

99  My newest and by far favorite in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by TrashedClothing on: September 13, 2006 08:29:30 PM
So my computer has been down and I had to drive an hour to Mom's and commandeer a laptop. FINALLY, my tower is up and running again so I could fiddle with my camera. I made a few more bags and the little birdie by far is my new favorite. I was thinking of charging $40 for this one at my upcoming show only because it is not canvas like the others. Is that too much? Comments are always appreciated!!

Thanks for looking!!

100  Decopauge Dominos (NOW WITH TUTORIAL!!) Img crazy! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TrashedClothing on: August 12, 2006 04:50:19 PM
Alright, so cyndiq asked me for a tutorial yesterday and I'm ready to give it a whirl. Please excuse any blurry photos. It's hard to craft and take pictures at the same time. Haha. I will be as descriptive as possible. If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact me. Hope you all enjoy!!

Supplies you will need:
Paper plate
Decoupage (I use Royal Coat)
Foam brush (20 for $1.00 at AC Moore)
Drill and 5/64 bit
Piece of wood to drill on
Needle nose pliers
Wire cutters
22g floral wire
Magazine or image


1. Select a domino you would like to use. Any size works as long as it fits the image you would like to use. Once you have selected both, lay your domino on the image.

2. Pick up the paper from underneath and fold all four side of the image up around the sides of the domino. You don't have to go crazy because you will be able to see the creases.

3. Take a pair of scissors and cut around the creases. Doesn't have to be exact because extra space is always better. If you want your image to lay perfect on the domino, your best bet is to continues with scissors. I personally like to take the image and tear away the excess for a rough edge type of look.

4. Lay your domino on the paper plate and dip your foam brush in the decoupage. Put a thin coat (you don't want it to be goopy) on your domino and place your image where you would like it. Take your scraper and gently pull it across the length of the domino to remove any air bubbles.

5. Once you have removed the air bubbles, put another coat over the image to seal it. I like to put 3-4 coats just to make sure it's sealed. However many you choose to do, your best bet is to let the final coat dry overnight.

6. After your decoupage is dry, you may notice that you have had some excess drip down the sides. Take your sandpaper and GENTLY(I can't stress this part enough) rub the excess off. You don't want to go too close to the top though as it will unseal the image from your domino.

7. After you are done sanding, place your domino on the piece of wood and get your drill ready. Hold the domino with one hand and place the drill in the center most part of the domino(if you are doing a horizontal image like this domino, you can actually turn it over and use the line for your center point). Apply pressure and drill your hole. You don't have to push too hard as most dominos these days are plastic.

8. Grab your floral wire and using your cutters, cut a piece approximately 7 inches long. A little more or a little less is ok.

9. Take your piece of wire and push about 2 inches through the opening.

10. Wrap the shorter piece of wire around the longer piece. Using your needle nose pliers, squeeze the edge of the wire so it does not remain sharp.

11. Make a loop with remaining piece of wire and wrap it around just as you did the first piece. Squeeze the edge like you did the first time and make sure no sharp pieces are sticking out.

12. You're done! This is what you should have(minus the camera glare) haha

ORIGINAL MESSAGE: Hi everybody! I've been a crafting fiend lately and I tried some decoupage dominos. I hope you like them. All comments are always appreciated!  Smiley
