1  More Spooky Shadow Boxes in Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: September 23, 2017 07:47:25 AM
After making a fun little house shadow box for the vintage Halloween swap, I decided I wanted one for myself.




The portrait is a lenticular sticker.  Also I made some more coffins because they're fun.








Thanks for looking!

2  Perler Bead Oops in Stitch And BOTCH by amigurl55 on: September 18, 2017 07:37:24 AM
I thought it would be fun to try a big perler project.  I chose Meridia, Daedric Prince of Life.  I attempted to fuse the not-yet-finished design so I could remove the boards and use them for the remainder of the project.  Sadly, even though I was working on a flat surface, the boards were uneven and fusing didn't really work.  This is what I had before the mishap:


I lost most of her face and the whole right side.  Yeah.  As discouraged as I am, I'm seeing this darn thing through!  I'm going to try the "tape method" which seems like it could also end in disaster because I'm a huge klutz.  Also I'm still having doubts about the mouth.  Not sure which one looks better.

3  Yeah, I totally needed a new hobby (Perler Beads) in Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: September 16, 2017 05:19:45 PM
I don't have enough hobbies already so I picked up Perler beads.  Here's what I've made so far.

My very favorite, a zombie ballroom dancer.  My husband thinks it's a mermaid.  What do you guys think?

I got my package from Audania1 today.

I got this cute crocheted witch inspired by this vintage picture.


And a pretty man in the moon medallion.  


Thank you so much Audania1!  I really like my swap package.
*edit- she also sent me a bunch of yummy fall tea that I forgot to take a picture of.*

5  Forgotten Fairy Lantern in Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: August 28, 2017 05:25:35 PM
Alas, this poor fairy was used to magically light the lantern, but was forgotten.  With no way out, the poor fairy wasted away.  Some of her fairy magic has remained in the lantern and on magical nights, when the moon is full, the lantern glows.

OK so basically I used fire to mold the skeleton into position.  The wings already looked pretty aged so I just had to pull them apart.  And I put a flickering electric tea light in the top for cool effects.

6  Coffin Shadow Boxes in Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: August 26, 2017 03:43:47 PM
I found these little coffins at Michael's and thought they were cute.  Then I found these cute miniatures and figured I could make a shadow box like the ones I saw on Pinterest.

The first one I made

Another apothecary type box

7  Skeleton Fairies in Completed Projects by amigurl55 on: August 23, 2017 09:03:09 PM
I'm pretty sure these should go in this section.  Anyway, the dollar store is dangerous for crafters.  I got the skeletons and fake butterflies there and I had the fabric and costume fur on hand.  I aged the colored wings with a marker.  I'm still experimenting with tea and coffee staining.

Mine's a cover up over a tattoo I absolutely hated.  It's based on an embroidery design from Urban Threads.

10  Newspaper Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by amigurl55 on: July 24, 2017 05:46:50 AM
I found this pattern at Joann.  It's a Lazy Girl design, and I love their patterns because they're super easy.  It's about 7" by 9" and has a pocket in the back.
