CrafTATstic Crafty Tattoos – MegPrice’s Wren and Paintbrush

I’m a sucker for a bird tattoo but this one is crafty, too! Craftster member MegPrice has this lovely birdie in honor of her father, who she says is the source of her crafty genes. Her father’s last name (and her maiden name) is Wrenn, so this lovely wren is perfect. Add to that the [...]

Manic Monday: Elephant picture from paint chips

This little picture is adorable! It’s basically a mosaic made out of paint chips. It is 11″x17″ and LittleGirl describes its creation as “painstakingly tedious”. All you need to create your own is cardstock, a gluestick, paint samples, and patience! You can see the full details of this project here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283341.0

Manic Monday: 3-D Apple Quilt

Calliel created this piece for her senior BFA exhibition. She doesn’t have specific details on how long this particular piece took but considering that it is an intricate quilt hung over a hand made frame with a wire armature for the hand sewn branch that holds an apple that she had to create at least [...]

Manic Monday: Bead Portraits

You may or may not know that I have LOTS of fuse bead experience. As much as I’ve organized TONS of beads onto little peg boards I’ve never been anywhere close to making something this great! A life-like portrait out of beads?! Awesome! Futzz created these great portraits of herself and her loved ones out [...]

Manic Monday: Day of the Dead Portrait

Rock Paper Scissors: You’ve got mail!

In a world of cell phones and email, it’s rare to get much in the mail other than advertisements and bills. Phizzychick is changing that for some lucky people. She’s been busy making and sending the most beautiful mail art postcards. I’ve posted a photo of one of them, but you’re really going to want [...]

Happy Clouds

Randomly Spotted on the Galactic Interweb… Imagine walking around London and seeing smiley faced clouds wafting through the air. That sounds… crazy, right? But an artist in London name Stuart Semple has done it! He released about 2,000 smiley clouds into the air just to cheer people up. I can honestly say that seeing that [...]

Field of Concrete Corn

Randomly Spotted on the Galactic Interweb… Some cities claim fame to breathtaking bridges or hand-carved statues. What do I get to claim? Corn. It’s not just any old corn, though. It’s concrete corn. Yep, an entire field of it, too. While it’s a fairly strange site to see a field of concrete corn, there is [...]

This is beelisty‘s first appearance on Manic Monday, but I can almost guarantee you it won’t be her last.

The Art of Ron Mueck

Randomly Spotted on the Galactic Interweb… Ron Mueck is an amazing sculptor whose work is both unsettling and astonishing. He creates hyper-realistic people in either enormous or tiny proportions. His subjects are human, with all the beauty, frailty, and disorder that involves. From birth to death, his work covers all aspects of the human condition. [...]
