111  Triple Moon in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bookstorebabe on: November 14, 2013 05:09:56 PM
A piece of cherry cabinet from the Habitat Restore, almost all my broken chains,a few beads, a broken compact, a small mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree, a few charms and odd earrings, and iridescent glass tiles from the craft store. The dragonfly is from some clearanced metal garden decor, that I painted.

detail shots

The tiles are very iridescent in real life.

Little frog

I'll go over it again and fill in a couple of places a bit more. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
EDIT-putting a link to my inspiration here in the top post, I forgot to do that when I originally posted! I don't know her,but this artist makes cool stuff. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TUTreasures?ref=l2-shopheader-name

113  Leaf Box in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: November 01, 2013 12:24:22 PM
Started as a battered wooden bible box from the thrift store.

The sides have a daubed on layer of black screenprinting ink, and then some antique gold rub n'buff. Screenprinting ink takes a few days to dry, but it's just perfec for some things. 

The inside is scrapbook paper,flocked ribbon, and a little more gold rub and buff.

Leaf close up.

Real leaves,foil,rub n' buff, spray paint, three shades of luminere acrylic paint, and glaze. And old gift cards. ^^

115  Steampunkish butterfly mirror. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bookstorebabe on: October 31, 2013 07:46:39 PM
Steampunkish butterfly mirror. A ceiling medallion I painted, a few rows of chain, a Dollar Tree mirror, and a butterfly. The butterfly was from some brightly colored metal garden decor vastly marked down at Dollar general.I painted it and added a few red glass beads. Just needs a hanger.

117  A couple of raygun shadowboxes in Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:29:28 PM
I needed a break from making mirrors, so whipped up a couple of these.  Grin I love buying cheap shadowboxes at the thrift store to take apart!

Can't really see any detail here, but there's metal bits added for a trigger, a metal cap on the nozzle, and a green brad at the end. Silver, white,and purple paint on a tiny water pistol from a pack of party favors, scrapbook paper, and a thrift store frame, and the word 'Imagine'. Most of my shadowboxes are 'in case of airship pirates/space pirates break glass, but I wanted to make a few different ones.

Second shadowbox! An old earring, a tiny key, a copper coil, the green bulb is from electronic innards, a disc, a pointy bit of plastic. Scrapbook paper and thrift store frame. The label-printed, cutout,glued on cardboard,wrapped in some twisted thin yarn from a tassel. The green leaves? From a sheet of temporary tattoos.

118  Something simple in Beads: Completed Projects by bookstorebabe on: October 26, 2013 01:17:03 PM
I bought a humongous pair of hoop earrings just for the pretty iridescent beads. Took them apart,strung them on a thin gold chain.

batteries acquired! There  were 3 bags chock full of goodies!

First bad, tons of beads. Including some very nifty hand made pottery ones!

Second bag, supplies! Spools of wire,lots of chain,charms,jump rings and other findings,ect.

Third bag, jewelry! Lots of necklaces,earrings,ect. This pic came out blurry, but this is nifty stuff.

Thank you again, tendstowardschaos. I feel very spoiled, and it's exciting thinking of what to make using my new supplies.
