21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunk Style Ray Gun on: September 27, 2016 12:15:10 PM
I bet everyone has seen that pin on pinterest on how to make steampunk guns and props. You just need a toy gun, some bits and bobs, black spray paint and Rub and Buff Metallic Finish. This project was so simple, but had a lot of steps and drying time.

I got the plastic gun a Dollar tree, roughed it up a bit for some texture, glued a bunch or random doodads on, including plastic gens, googly eyes, metal studs, gears, game pieces, paper brads, etc.

After a coat of black spray paint, i added the rub and buff in two colors, copper and pewter, and for a colorful light effect used some nail polish on some of the brads.

I really love the effect and want to make so much more steampunk weapons! I also would like to try the rub and buff technique on some extra funko pops i got. Who things a steampunk style ariel would be cool?
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I Love Zombies Bracelet on: September 27, 2016 12:05:34 PM
I made this for bunny1kenobi is the Giant Multi Theme Swap! One of her themes was The Walking Dead. I was debating on what to make, since I don't watch the show i don't know much except what i see in memes on the internet. I found the zombie themed charms in the halloween jewelry supply section at Joanns and I had to get them. I found an old glass bead bracelet at the thrift store that I used all the black and red beads off of, and I had a wax cord bracelet from hottopic with the three brain charm in the middle. I took all the things apart and put them back together as this very cool charm bracelet. This was one of my favorite items and I was pretty sad to be sending it away, but since I'm not much of a fan of zombies it would be silly for me to keep it.

What do you think?

24  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Reversible Face Mask Creepy Smile vs Blood Splatter on: August 22, 2016 08:55:22 PM
I made this for Smeddley in the Goth Swap!

This is just a medical style face mask. On one side i did a creepy cheshire type toothy smile and the other side is blood splatter. I had fun making it but more fun taking pictures haha!

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Holographic Drip Stripey Tote Bag on: August 22, 2016 08:33:08 PM
I made this for Smeddley in the Goth Swap!

I haven't made any type of purse or bag in a very long time and I've been itching to make something. Smeddley mentioned she'd like a new sturdy bag and I think i delivered! THe lining is made from pre quilted black fabric, the outside stripe fabric is made from either upholstery or outdoor canvas. I reinforced the seams with a top stitch on both sides. I cut out the green holographic vinyl in a blood-esque drip style and used my sewing machines blanket stitch to sew it onto the bag.

I couldn't have been more happy with how it came out. I  almost kept it for myself, but I thought up a variation i will make one day for myself.

26  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Collaboration Swap on: August 17, 2016 08:06:48 PM
Well I was just thinking it might be neat to do a swap where two people collaborate on a project together.

I was thinking each person half makes something, like a piece of artwork, needlework, crochet, etc, and sends it to their partner who finishes is.

Either we could send back to the original person, or keep the finished item, depending on what people prefer.

Im not available for swapping for a couple months but I figure everyones a bit busy now anyway.

What do you guys think?

29  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Velvet Coffin Ring Display on: July 28, 2016 07:15:05 PM
Today at work we finally had some Halloween themed craft supplies. I found this coffin chalkboard  decoration I knew I had to have it. It's a really good size and I was sure I could make something with it. There was a lot of traffic when I left so I decided to stop by the dollar store and wait it out. There I saw some foam hair rollers and I was inspired to make a ring display. I've been wanting to make one and I think this is the perfect design.

I hot glued the rollers end to end and cut it to fit in the coffin shape, I hot glued those down into the coffin, then I draped some crushed velvet over the display and tucked the fabric between the rollers.  Tadah!

It only took 20 minutes or so. 8 definitly want to make a few more. Next time I'll take in progress shots.

I love it. What do you think?  - audio

I did the tsum tsum swap and now I'm itching for another Disney swap. I'm thinking just a general Disney swap with a couple of items.

 I just can't get enough and hope there's some more Disney fanatics ready to swap.

What's a good time frame?
