1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Tiger Sketch on: June 29, 2014 01:18:14 PM
I have been working on incorporating tigers into my art for a while now and so I have to practice drawing them a lot. Here is one of my sketches. It looks really docile and sweet, I want to capture a little more fire than that, but I will try again.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Bleach Pen Altered Leggings on: June 28, 2014 06:42:28 PM
I wear a lot of leggings, I find them to be a flattering addition to shorter skirts and a great solution to packing light since they take up a lot less room than jeans. I realized the other day that most of my leggings are plain ole black, so I decided to liven things up by trying out a design using a bleach pen process. I am pretty happy with how they turned out. The design ended up red instead of something lighter because I didn't leave the gel on very long. I am actually really happy with the red color, but in the future I would like to experiment with leaving it on long enough to lighten it so I can use a dye afterwards to see what kind of color effects I can get.

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hand Stitched Felt Halloween Ghost Brooches on: September 04, 2013 07:23:52 PM
I made these while waiting in a waiting room. They were really fun and all the supplies fit in a little plastic bag making them a very portable craft Smiley

4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Abstract Fish Ink Drawing Notecards on: September 04, 2013 07:14:27 PM
I have been in kind of a rut artistically lately so I decided to try something outside of the box for me. Here's what I came up with: Some abstract ink drawings of fish and a Narwhal. I abstracted them by taking the color and pattern of their markings beyond the forms of the animals and on to the rest of the art surface. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out and I am interested in exploring this kind of thing more.



5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A Dodo Bird Drawing on: July 21, 2013 01:02:42 PM
I just made this little drawing while sketching for some other art work and thought he had personality, so I thought I would share him here.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Doggie Dress Do-Over on: July 21, 2013 12:48:22 PM
When I first bought this dress it was on clearance for only 1.97 but it was just a plain brown print that looked dirty due to some unfortunate shading, but I bought it anyway because I knew I could do something with it. Here it is. All it took was a little fabric paint and sparkle to make it doggie-licious!

7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegetarian 200 Calorie English Muffin Pizza on: July 05, 2013 05:48:44 PM
I have recently been making a new attempt at getting healthy, so I have been trying to come up with fun, yummy, and creative recipes that are around 200 calories to fit my plan. Here is one of my attempts, I think it turned out pretty tasty  Smiley



The recipe is really easy:
1 English Muffin, I used a Thomas 100 calorie one.
1tbsp tomato sauce (is plenty for both pieces)
1/4 mozzarella cheese (I used Sargento and it was plenty for both pieces)
A few bits of pepper, mushroom, and morningstar farms veggie bacon.

Cut the English muffin in half and toast the two halves, place on a cookie sheet and build like pizza, then place in the oven under the broiler until the cheese is nice and bubbly. Note: these don't need a whole piece of veggie bacon, I used about 1/3 of one slice. If you eat the whole slice of veggie bacon it is slightly more than 200 calories.
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Sarcastic Ceramic Plaques on: July 03, 2013 03:57:28 PM
I had some cookie cutters, some stamps, and some clay so this is what I came up with:







I didn't use regular glazing techniques with these, instead I fired them to bisque and then used a watercolor and varnish technique to give them a stained look. I think they turned out pretty well!
9  COOKING / Dessert / Biscoff Butter and Cookie truffles on: July 03, 2013 03:41:54 PM
The very first time i tried Biscoff cookie butter I thought, hmm this would make some amazing truffles. So I finally got around to trying that idea, and man are they delicious!

They were really simple to make: First I thickened the Biscoff butter with some powdered sugar until I could make little balls with it. Then I melted some white chocolate and started the little cups in the candy mold, then I placed a little ball of the filling into the mold and finally I placed a little piece of cookie in there too for a little crunch, then I filled the mold the rest of the way with more melted white chocolate and put them in the freezer for a minute to set. Once they were set, I popped them out and dusted them with some nutmeg and cinnamon.


10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Summer Fire Orange Tribal Geometric Necklace on: June 20, 2013 12:49:40 PM
One of my favorite mediums is Shrinky Dink because there is just so much you can do with it! This is the first time I have made something line and pattern oriented with it. I am pleased with how this project turned out. At first I was going to make more of a bib necklace with a lot more pieces, but the pieces turned out much bigger than I thought so instead of making one big necklace I got four necklaces and 3 pairs of earrings out of it.
