1  Louisiana Stencil Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Smashtastically on: September 23, 2012 12:26:56 PM
I made a custom stencil of Louisiana, with a heart cut out over Baton Rouge, where me and the hubs met Smiley I did this with Tulips fabric paint that comes in a spray bottle.

And then I made one for our niece (sans BR heart), with regular silver fabric paint and a brush.

2  Mockingjay Hunger Games Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Smashtastically on: September 23, 2012 12:21:04 PM
This has been floating around in several places. I made my own for myself, my sister, and two of my friends.

For more info on how I made them: http://pandercraft.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/stenciled-shirts-part-1-bleached-mockingjay/

I really like how the bleach on blue turned green!

3  My Take on Melted Crayon Art in Completed Projects by Smashtastically on: September 23, 2012 12:12:30 PM
You can check out my blog for more on how I made this: http://pandercraft.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/melted-crayon-art-duo-post/

I really love how it turned out! I wanted to try the crayon thing but not do exactly what everyone else has done- and I didn't 100% like the idea of still have the crayons on my piece when I was done.

4  Re: Jewel Case Wall with Tutorial in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Smashtastically on: August 17, 2010 09:10:05 AM
So I took this tutorial and made my own with a few tweaks. Thank you OP for the great idea! I found someone with 100 CD cases on freecycle. This is smaller than the one in the tutorial because I didn't really design it to split a room- more to put some color on the wall since we can't paint (well, we can, if I paint it back to white before we move out and I feel like that's a lot of painting when we're only here for another 10 months).

all my case panels hot-glued together-

Painted, halfway-

Then I added some silver with a rag bc the color was REALLY intense-

The tree part is done!

Wiring it together...it's kind of hard to get a good picture of it.

I'm semi-obsessed with making things reversible, because I get bored but I spent a lot of time on this and I'm not going to scrap it when I want to change things up! I also read about the problems with the hot glue sometimes not holding on its own, so I found some printed tape at the craft store and used that along the edges- I might do it on each square later like a grid. Then I put pictures in it, so if I get bored I can just flip it over and have a handy dandy photo mosaic of sorts (that's me and my husband snorkeling on our honeymoon Smiley


I'm pretty jazzed about it even though it didn't turn out perfect. I wanted to add some writing of quotes or something but my handwriting is sort of unattractive, so I might add that later. Thanks again for the tute!
