DIY files; ring tray 1.31.11

January 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

Armed with a surplus of crystals, rocks and rings. Thanks mostly to my mother, who lives in Taos and is an avid rock hound; I was able to complete the look I wanted to store my rings. I started with a trip to Michaels, and then a stop at ross. I can always find weird storage items at ross for very cheap (this tray was around $4), and the sand i used is about $2 at Michael’s. I brought this tray home and painted it with the same black satin krylon paint i used for my earring holder. I filled the newly painted tray with the same white sand i used in the vase; then added a dried flower and some of the aformentioned flair given to me by my mother (including an antler tip she gave me for good luck).

This is a simple, cheap and beautiful way to be able to see all my rings and quickly choose my accessories without taking up too much space.

This shot is amazing! It is soft and natural yet raw; I love the long soft dress with the leather and fur vest contrasted against the mud caked horse.

I am an accessory fiend.

Often times when i shop the only things that will fit are accessories. I love vintage jewelry and making my own as well. But with so many accessories i have trouble finding what i want to wear and often times find myself forgetting i even own some of what i do. I grew really, really tired of rummaging through my jewelry box trying to find a pair of earrings. So i put on my creative thinking hat and took a trip to Michaels art supply store and the container store. Love them both.

I decided to build an earring holder that would match the white painted branches i have holding my necklesses and my boyfriends clothes (since mine have filled the closet). I pulled out my box of collected craft supplies; took an old vase, some white sand, twigs, feathers, dried wild flowers and a few cans of spray paint. Out into the back yard and began spraying.

I coated the vase with a satin finish black krylon paint, the twigs with a satin white. Selected the twigs i would need and a few of the other items i thought might look cool in the vase to add a bit of filler. I filled the newly blackened vase with the white sand i purchased from Michaels and started pressing everything into the sand. This was a fun, easy and cheap way to create a DIY  natural earring organizer.

PS: I also created a ring organizer and have plans of creating a chandelier. Shots of the rest of my matching DIY natural organizers coming soon.

Started fishing through the archives and found some work from my days as a Graphic Design Student at PSU.

The print portion of a project given to us in which we had to design a campaign for both the pro and con side of a controversial subject. The subject i received was Barbies. For the negative side i designed a campaign on the negative self image girls have and how barbies may have a connection. After a lot of research into the studies done on this subject and the stats on plastic surgery and self-image diseases. I came up with this.
