1  Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2014 in Needlework: Stitchalongs by lindyv321 on: August 26, 2014 08:44:45 AM
So I still haven't transferred the pattern I intended to use for this months theme but....

The hoop that I started for the February theme has been sitting unfinished for months now.  My partner in the IYP swap just happened to have the exact hoop pinned so I was finally motivated to finish it and send it off to her.  Now that it's done I think it actually fits for this months whimsical theme.  My partner hasn't received the hoop yet but she doesn't follow this thread so I am safe posting.

The pattern is called Doodle Heart from Urban Threads.

3  Altered Halloween Tombstones in Halloween Decor and Parties by lindyv321 on: August 21, 2014 03:34:12 PM
I am participating in a small Halloween swap that Retro Cafe Art Gallery is hosting.  We had to make a set of altered tombstones and these are what I will be sending in.  I used alcohol inks and book pages for the backgrounds.  It was my first time using the inks and I really like how they turned out.



Some blurry closeups



My favorite is the purple one

I finished a project that I wasn't planning on making but it just had to be done.  Now only have to work on the sewn item that I have been putting off for weeks!  To be fair though rather than crafting yesterday I was a bit busy dealing with this

8  Long Live the Queen Bee in Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: August 04, 2014 02:29:48 PM
I had purchased this wonderful Bee Shrine kit from Retro Cafe Art Gallery months ago and have been wanting to make it but have been busy with all kinds of swaps and real life.  Thanks to the Fake Swap Craftalong I was able to fake join the whimsical shrine swap and was inspired to pull it out. 

I started by spray painting just about everything black and did a quick spritz of gold so there would be a little sparkle. Then I used some other paints I had on the hive.  I mixed some colors up to come up with the right coppery yellow I wanted.  When they were dry I pressed the yellow bits into an ink pad.  The torso is a piece of paper with yellow paint and painted black dots.


The wings were painted black and I painted some random holey paper then attached it.  I had the bee cut outs and wasn't quite sure what to do with them at first but then it hit me that they should be buzzing around their queen!  I just sandwiched some wire between two painted bees then attached them with glue and tape.



This is probably one of my most favorite altered items that I have done!  I am glad I get to actually keep this one!
