1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Inchie Fun with new stamps - pic heavy on: September 29, 2015 05:16:20 PM
I received some fun new stamps from Rscowtown in the Ongoing Wish Swap Round 118. I really wanted to play around with the interesting textures for inchies. I also thought some of you may enjoy seeing it from start to finish.

I started with a sheet of white cardstock and used various inks and just smeared the ink around randomly. Then I stamped around on the sheet with lots of bright colors.

Then I used a black, finetip sharpie and doodled.

Then I cut the sheet into inchies. I added additional ink color for those that seemed a little bland. I also edged the inchies in black ink.

Thanks for looking. Smiley
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Kleenex Owl on: September 06, 2015 06:47:27 PM
A few years ago Kleenex came out with a series of boxes that were watercolored owl designs. I love anything with owls so I bought them all and cut out and saved the designs. Quite a while ago I started the embroidery piece but then just packed it away. Last week I dug it out and made it into a wall hanging.

Thanks for looking.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Inchies, Rinchies, and Notecards... Oh My! on: August 28, 2015 08:40:38 AM
I have been making myself a lot of inchies, rinchies, and twinchies lately. Tons of fun has been had as I've turned those little works of art into useful projects. Wall art, notecards, etc., are now stacked up in my craft room. Here are a few pics of some of the cool notecards I have made.

Some of the designs are rather simple, but I think they are lovely in their simplicity. I like to keep the insides of my notecards blank because I feel like handwriting your sentiments is really special for the recipient.


4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Gelli-printed Goodies on: August 28, 2015 08:28:10 AM
In the O.W.S. swap round 117 I received a 6x6 gelli plate from the very generous Rscowtown. I was thrilled beyond words as I had been desperately wanting to try out what I knew would be my next craft addiction. (I can't say enough how generous Laurel was in this swap claim!)

I wanted to post a few pics to show what I did with the first few sheets that I made on my new plate. I decided to use some of the papers to make some notecards. The envelopes also have the papers used for decoration. They are pretty simple but I like them a lot. I hope you enjoy them! Thanks for looking.

5   / CHALLENGE 109 ENTRIES / Chicago Themed Dotee Doll on: August 13, 2015 02:35:12 PM
Back in May I created this Chicago musical themed dotee doll for my wonderful swap partner, Smmarrt. The swap was the Monthly Dotee Swap - May 2015 - Music. I would like to thank Smmarrt for allowing me to use her photos. Link to the original swap thread:

Here are some photos:

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bee Embroidery on: August 03, 2015 05:49:08 PM
Here is an embroidered wall-hanging I recently made for a swap. It is already in a new home.

I combined two large embroidered bees with a smaller image of a beehive and some honeycomb shapes.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Video Game Wall Art - several pics on: June 09, 2015 09:40:41 AM
I have been saving some old issues of Game Informer Magazine and decided they would be perfect to make some wall art for my boys bedroom. I used a scrapbooking 1 inch circle cutting tool and cut out a lot of circles. I had two canvases, one I painted black and the other white and neon yellow. I then glued 19 rows of 9 circles on each canvas and added some design with cheap craft paint and a dylusions stencil. I think they turned out pretty cool - my kids loved them. Also, it was great to recycle the magazines. Thanks for looking!

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It's a me! Mario! (pillowcase) on: April 12, 2012 06:29:37 AM
Here is a hand-embroidered Mario and Luigi pillowcase I recently made for a friend. She wanted it for her nephew. I am really proud of it and wanted to share it with all of you. Thankfully, her nephew loved it.

Thanks for looking!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beatles "Eleanor Rigby" embroidered project on: June 09, 2011 11:40:51 AM
This is my first time posting a project of mine on the boards other than in the appropriate swap gallery. I am really nervous but here it goes.....

This is an embroidered piece I made for Pixiefirefly for the Beatles Swap. Her favorite song was Eleanor Rigby so I used a portion of the lyrics and settled on an idea of a psychedelic cameo.

This is a pic of after the design was drawn. I used fabric markers to color in the design and then stitched around each color with matching thread.

This next pic is after all the psychedelic design is colored in. I am now ready to start the actual embroidering.

This last pic is after all the stitching is completed. I outlined the silhouette in black but the inside stitches are color coordinated. I hope you like it.

10  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Please Help - New Weaver Question on: August 26, 2008 10:27:41 AM
Hello Everyone. I just received a Kromski Harp 32" rigid heddle loom for my birthday -yes I have the best husband ever Wink -but I have question. I just picked up some cheap yarn to experiment with and to use while I watched the video that teaches you how to use your warp board and actually put your yarn through the heddle slots. So my husband was helping me and when we got to the point of putting the yarn through the heddle holes he was considered that the yarn I was using was too thick and I would damage the heddle (because the yarn was so thick it didn't easily go through the holes) So I was very disappointed. I did all that work for nothing. Now I have no yarn to use and no stores nearby to seek help.

I can't find anything online suggesting exactly what kind of yarn to use for my warp. Let's say I want to make a basic placemat just as a practice project. Does anyone have any ideas for appropriate warp yarn? Maybe a website where I can get it? I don't understand the terminology 8/2 22/2 and all that stuff.

Unfortunately there are no specialty stores where I live with weaving supplies so most of my shopping will be done online. Any help is greatly appreciated.
