Glass Block Light

I finally finished this it has been a work in progress project for some time. I first drilled a hole in the block to run the lights I then put all my Velum Papers on then I decoupaged the flaming I painted on the glass block.
Then just this past weekend I put some Blue aluminum foil in the front of the block on the bottom hoping to give the allusion of water, put my string of lights in and added some aquarium stones all around the lights to help hold them down.

Last thing I did was put some very wide canvas ribbon all around the side of the Block just for added dimension.

I would love comments

What I did during the Tropical Storm

Monday, August 25, 2008

We survived the storm. Jacksonville as a whole got 20" of water, many homes damaged from wind. We lost a tree in the back yard and had some major damage to our fence but all in all we faired well.
Anyway I got a order for a Purple Wreath from a Lady and this is what I made. I had made the same thing last year for another Lady I never think of Purple for the Holidays but when I went to Michaels I had no problem finding accessories.

Gift Card Purse Pin

Thursday, August 14, 2008

My friend Joy was so kind and got me some expired gift cards. I made a small template of a dome shape. I cut 2 cards and glued them together, punched 2 holes in the top ran a wire and wrapped it and shaped it adding beads then secured it by wrapping the other end. This serves as the purse handle. I then cut out a heart shape and glued it to the purse and embellished it all with old broken jewelry. Glued a pin on the back and that was it.

Zuni Earrings Handmade

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

I actually found the facings for these off a hanging ornament for the wall. I brought them home with no idea what to do with them. A couple days ago I pulled them out and realized they would fit over a silver concho so I glued them on added a clip on, then added blue seed beads all over the outside and I think they are kinda nice earrings. Measuring at almost 2".

These are for sale $8.00

Remember When Framed Art

Friday, August 8, 2008

I made this with many different items. The heart in the center is rick rack sewed into a yo yo embellished in the center with a tiny pearl from a broken necklace.
The clock, Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triumph, luggage tag, and passport are all chipboard..
The pictures are royalty free images I found on the Internet, the frames I used my sizzix for them.
The Key and other items are from broken Jewelry I found.
I put some scrap grosgrain ribbon down on the right hand side and added 2 rick rack yo yo's on each side.
The watch I took from a broken watch my daughter gave me, I put a round finding around it to add some depth it fit perfect.
The purse and eyeglasses I found at a dollar store.
The frame I bought at a Church Sale.
I put many hours into this but I do like the results.

Jockey Earrings

Friday, August 1, 2008

I made these some time ago took a pair of old damaged disc earrings and wrapped black elastic around them until the earring was totally covered. I found these little charms in the bottom of a bag of supplies I had so I glued them on to the earrings. The little charms are a Horse and a Jockey Hat with the Horse Whip resting under the cap.
