291  My scarab beetle bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: July 09, 2007 03:57:50 PM
I was playing around with my clay+molds and came up with the idea of the scarab bracelet. What do you think?

292  Small tribute to Tim Burton bird house in Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: July 09, 2007 03:53:42 PM
So I bought this bird house awhile ago and couldn't find inspiration to paint it. The other day my daughter and I were watching "Corpse Bride" and then it came to me. Tim Burton style. I aged the wood by beating it up with my carver then applied 2 different colors of gray, painted the accent on the back then grabbed my polymer clay stash. The door, the dead black rose bush, the man eating bush, the skeleton arm, tombstone, and the crow are all polymer. The shingles were done be running carstock through a shredder then clipping them and gluing. It's sealed with poly even though it will never go outside. I'm thinking of attaching a nighlight fixture inside.

293  From cute chimps to a sleepy baby elephant in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: June 21, 2007 08:35:55 AM
Here's attempt number 2. I have been wanting to do an elephant so I went through some images on the internet trying to find a baby elephant picture. Amazing I know what an elephant looks like but still needed a pic. Anyway he's made all free hand with "Elephant Grey" clay. I'm starting a whole jungle theme now, I'm hooked.
Hope you like!

You can see he has that little elephant hair on his head!
My inspiration

I love the way these two turned out. I usually do polymer jewelry, creatures, and hair things these are my first "real" animals. Hope you like.

296  Sooo easy metal bulletin board with easy magnets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: June 17, 2007 08:28:42 PM
I've been wanting to put a bulletin board in my craft room. I figured a simple trip to Lowe's will fix it. After wandering the aisles I ended up in the plumbing department and I found this there. I thing it has something to do with ventilation? Perfect size and a ridged top to support a way to hang it. Kids and I cut out some video game magazines to make the magnets. I just grabbed some extra self adhesive linoleum tile. Stuck it on and glued a magnet to the back. A lot of explanation for a really easy project.

297  A rose bouquet pin cushion in Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: June 17, 2007 08:15:56 PM
This started out with just messing around with some scrap felt. I hate wasting anything. So scrap felt into pin cushion. TADA!

298  My new purse hanger in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: June 08, 2007 02:13:51 PM
I love sewing purses but I was running out of room to store them in. So I decided to find a accordion coat hanger to display them on. I looked high and low and the only one I could find was rainbow. So I repainted it and then accessorized it. The grey may seem a bit dim but I redid my craft room in grey tones with touches of red.

299  Collage Dragon Goddess necklace holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: May 16, 2007 11:43:05 AM
Well this started as a basic need to hang up some chunkier necklaces. First it was just the would board painted with hooks...didn't like it. Then I found some mosaic stained glass pieces and added the mirror...needed more so I added the polymer clay dragon goddess in the middle.

The worst part was I didn't have any grout so I threw together some Plaster of Paris and painted it black and sealed it with poly.

300  Pretty in pink(and brown) clothes hook in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: May 14, 2007 07:56:09 PM
I bought these a few years ago to put up in my daughters room. They were just your typical plain wood hooks from the craft store. Anyway she went out of her Disney princess theme and wanted something more glamorous. By the way she's 8 going on 25. So I whipped out the pink and brown paint and found my stash of misc. wood pieces and Viola!

and to show their 3-D

She loves them both but I'm keeping the heart for my craft room.
