Unicorn ornaments


image2

Creating these cute unicorn ornaments turned out to be a success! Normally, when you pull a craft idea from Pinterest, it doesn’t quite turn out how you expect.

Supplies: Glass bulbs, craft clay, bits (flowers), felt, glitter, and floor polish (I used pledge floor polish), and hot glue.

Coat the inside of the bulbs with the floor polish and pour out (it looks just like slightly soapy water), then pour glitter inside and coat. Put bulb top back on. I used air-dray model magic for the unicorn horns. I hot glued the horn and flowers and jewels on, and the felt ears. I drew on the eyes with black permanent marker.

Super easy and cute as heck!

ARMED AND DANGEROUSLY CREATIVE

Portland crafters get ready to square off at SCRAP’s Rebel Craft Rumble, June 15

PORTLAND, Ore. – Armed with scissors, glue and plenty of sass, some of Portland ’s best crafters are ready to go head-to-head in the ultimate SCRAP smack-down.

Local crafters who believe they’ve got enough game to earn the title of Portland ’s Craft Master will square off and put their talents to the test in front of a live audience at SCRAP’s annual Rebel Craft Rumble, June 15.  

At Rebel Craft Rumble, four pre-qualified contestants will compete against one another for who can come up with the best craft creations under dramatic timed “bouts,” using only the materials selected for them.  To make it even more challenging, audience members also can bid on craft items that contestants must use as part of their designs. 

“It’s a true test of wits and strategy played out on ultimate crafting stage. Talent, time and tenaciousness will all come into play. The rowdiness of the audience may certainly be a factor as well,” said Kelley Carmichael Casey, executive director of SCRAP.

The contestants’ creations will be judged by Julie Sabatier of Destination DIY, Lindsey Newkirk of Junk to Funk Trashion Collective and Jen Neitzel and Richard Fox of DIY Lounge.  The best competitor will participate in the ultimate challenge against reigning champ and Craft Master, Sister Diane Gilleland, editor-in-chief of CRAFT.

Rebel Craft Rumble will be held at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton, in Portland . Tickets are available at www.scrapaction.org/events/rebel-craft-rumble. General admission is $8 in advance, $10 at the door (admission includes 1 beer ticket). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and proceeds will benefit SCRAP.  This rowdy event is 21+.

As Portland ’s favorite place for creative inspiration, SCRAP provides an environmentally sound solution for individuals, families and businesses to donate reusable material and discover affordable, interesting arts and crafts supplies. At SCRAP, being creative means being kind to the environment – SCRAP diverts more than 103 tons of materials annually from the waste stream.  Located at 2915 N.E. MLK Blvd. , in Portland , SCRAP also can be found online atwww.scrapaction.org.

SCRAP thanks its hardcore sponsors for this event:  ReDirect Guide, Mid-America Overseas, Inc, MacTarnahan’s Brewing, Chinook Book and The Workshop.

Collage


Here are some of my collage pieces that I have created as well.  This is one of my favorite things to do.  I love getting the glue and modgepodge all over my hands… 🙂

my books


I have been making books for a couple of years now.  I mostly use reused materials, scrapbook, wrapping, and handmade paper.  I sew the pages together and then bind them.  Here are a couple of samples.  I also cover composition books (because some people like to have lined paper).  I make the books for fun, but have custom made books to order.
