167 - Socket Head Screws
I was trying to pick a bolt size for something and put together this gallery. 3/8, 1/4, #10, #8, #6 and #4.
166 - Stained Glass Digital Image
I saw a t-shirt with a “crossed lines with colors filled in between” style and decided to mess around in Inkscape. This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I started, but there you go.
165 - Skedoodle
This one of my wife’s old tools that my kids inherited (We were an Etch-A-Sketch house when I grew up).
164 - Big Stars
Grabbed this free music card at Starbucks and wanted to do something with it after getting the number off the back.
163 - Bubblewrap
Cutting the bubblewrap was surprisingly easy. The sheet between the bubbles is so thin that the scissors glided through. The trick was not slicing through the bubbles I wanted to keep.
162 - Needles
My wife got me these needles for a bookbinding project I’m messing with. They didn’t really work out for that, but they can make a star!
161 - Frozen Watercolor (Failure)
I’ve previously featured my star ice cube tray. One idea I have for it is to make a star by freezing some watercolor and melting it onto paper. This was my first attempt, which just resulted in a colored puddle. I need to mess with a thinner star and more absorbent paper.
160 - Mandarin Oranges
My girls love these canned mandarin oranges and we go through a lot of them. When serving out another can, I saw an opportunity.
159 - Shenandoah Flower
Another star shape in nature. I took this on the side of the trail in Shenandoah N.P. The picture languished for a while on the camera memory card, but I’ve finally gotten to it.
