1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Quarantine pens may not be escape-proof on: April 17, 2015 06:58:16 PM
Whoops! It got away! I hope you have your rabies shots!









Made for MissingWillow's sheep zombie collection. Mounted on 3 x 3 inch wood. The wee tufts of wool are actually bits of cotton ball fluff  Cheesy
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Doctor Who and Harry Potter Fandom scarves on: April 15, 2015 04:02:59 PM
I've been looking for new ways to use my screen printing equipment so I decided to branch out and print up some scarves! They're all a light cotton that took to printing beautifully. Unfortunately I didn't have anyone available so had to play the model myself - trying to get good pictures to show off the scarves was definitely a challenge! I hope you like them  Smiley









3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Did you ever wonder what the Doctor's closet might look like? on: April 15, 2015 05:10:01 AM
Maybe it's something like this...



I mean, where else would he put his spare paintings and bowties and extra hand? It only makes sense.

I repurposed a simple wood box found at Michael's, giving it an uneven Tardis blue staining.















Some of the items even come out and can be used to decorate your own tiny humble abode.





Don't forget your extra screwdrivers!



Even the Doctor has boxes of what seem like random junk. Good to know he's only huma....errr...right.





Also included: a spare spare key, emergency party bananas, a copy of Summer Falls and An Angel's Kiss, *gasp* TWO Weeping Angel children (how did they get there! Don't Blink!), River Song's party heels, a tropical umbrella (you never know when you're going to need festively bright umbrella), a portrait of River Song, Vincent's hat, the Doctor's fez, an extra Christmas tree decoration, an extra psychic paper book, a copy of the Don't Blink tapes on disc, oh, and a sword. Because the Doctor might need a sword someday...for some reason...

I hope you enjoyed this delightfully voyeuristic look into the depths of the Doctor's closet. One of them at least.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Unattended cookies - a wee outdoor ATC scene on: February 20, 2015 05:25:38 PM
This one is titled "Unattended Cookies". Probably one of my better titles lately  Smiley

I am so in love with the brickwork on this - made from egg carton stuff - not actual egg cartons as I can't find them anymore nowadays but a cup holder from a fast food joint (the only reason I got a small snack was so that I could get away with asking for a cup holder without seeming too weird... Roll Eyes). Mortar is fabric paint, works like a charm!







The umbrella is of course one of those little drink umbrellas trimmed up a bit to be more size-appropriate.

Supplies: cup holder, balsa wood, fabric paint, stamp ink, moss, stamp, drink umbrella, poly clay, wire, paint, hot glue, E6000, charm, texture paste, paper towel,...
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / The Doctor's Laboratory - another tiny ATC scene on: February 20, 2015 03:42:33 PM
I can't stop! These chunky ATCs are too fun! This one was made for bunny1kenobi who shares my love of plague doctors. I decided I wanted to imagine the tiny setting of a mini laboratory...this is only a small peek of the entire lair I'm sure.



What respectable plague doctor would be without some incense, a cross, and a skull to keep him company?





Did you know that plague doctors had their canes, not only for looking very stylish while walking, but to also use as instruments of examination, poking, and prodding? Learn something new every day.



My favorite detail is probably the cutest, tinest rats you ever did see. Kind of ironic, a plague doctor infested with rats.  Wink

Final list of supplies: balsa wood, paint, poly clay, charms, clear plastic tubing, wire, fabric paint, cork, beads, end caps, raffia, marker, white tubing, acorn cap, moss, plastic spine, mini glass vial, hot glue, stamp ink, skull, weird nature seed thing, velvet bag, foil, super glue, E6000, thread, plastic straw, mini nails, paper, crimp bead.........I think that's it!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / National Tooth Fairy Day - another super chunky ATC on: February 16, 2015 05:39:27 PM
If you didn't know already, August 22nd is National Tooth Fairy Day. In honor of such a joyous holiday I think we should all treat ourselves to a tour of a local hard working orthodontia pixie  Grin



Apparently this resident fairy is a little behind in her teeth cataloging and filing! Must keep up with that quota!



She is kinda cheap, it has to be said. Only pennies, nickels and dimes?! Immature homo sapien dental specimens are way more expensive than that nowadays!







Materials used: balsa wood, paint, washi tape, paper, stamp, bee and clock charm, coins, faux leaf, E6000, hot glue, end cap, wire, bead, tooth picks, fabric, plastic tubing, poly clay, ...I think that's it..
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Pushing the bounds of the ATC - a Super chunky bathroom on: February 13, 2015 04:16:21 PM
I decided to play in this month's ATC swap and picked the theme of "dollhouse interior"...now I'm not so crazy as to try to tackle an entire dollhouse in a 2.5 x 3.5" format, so I wanted to focus on the one room that is in every house, nay essential one might say, to the civility of human society, the bathroom. And I decided to call it "The Room that Shall Not be Named" just because as essential as it is, generally pop culture refuses to admit that, omg we're all human and we have bodily functions!

Anyway, rant over. Now to the itty bitty pictures!



I know I'm stretching the definition of an ATC pretty wildly here..but I couldn't resist. Minus the balsa wood and clay, everything is stuff I found around my apartment.

Alas it must be said, I got a bit carried away with the sink and shower that I neglected to make room for a toilet! That may have to be the more in-depth subject for a future ATC.











For a final note, here are all the found bits that were included in this tiny masterpiece: balsa wood, Sculpey clay, resin, paint, paper, beads, end caps, foil, pencil lead container top, paper towel, wire, earring stopper, snap, doily, tissue paper, modge podge, thread, toothpick, E6000, super glue, hot glue, necklace chain, fabric paint, marker...I think that's it.  Smiley
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tiny Things Are Cute Swap on: February 09, 2015 05:28:09 AM

Image found on Pinterest

I know there's been plenty of OTT swaps (One Tiny Thing), but I was thinking of a swap where we are specifically swapping miniaturized items destined for a dollhouse/super cute tiny display. People could list general themes, and we could have lots and lots of tiny crafting fun  Cheesy Maybe a total of 3 miniaturized items sent - though that's up for discussion. What do you think?
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunked insects on: January 28, 2015 04:44:12 PM
I made these bugs with a mixture of poly clay bases, found metal junk, and then giving the bodies a shine with some pearl ex powders. The wings were made from tissue paper modge podged onto a wire framing made with wire. It has a fantastic translucent quality to it.













10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Strength Mixed media Prayer Flag on: January 28, 2015 05:21:46 AM
I made this prayer flag for petskin as an extra in a recent swap. I am so stinkin' happy with how it came out. I started with the image as a base which I had made a year or so ago with some inkodye. It's a vintage photograph of a tattooed lady though it is hard to see the fine details but I kind of like the blurry effect. I embellished with some ripped lace (thanks artsycandice!) some maroon buttons that I've had for a long time, dark brown transparent fabric (name is escaping me right now) and some rust stained fabrics (again thanks artsy!). I embellished with some fun abstract mark making with the embroidery and alcohol inks, and key, and then just felt like the whole thing said "strength" to me so I stitched that on too. The pearly beaded fringe was hand done....and...I think that's it. I just love how all the things I added on feel like they could have come from her world, from her clothes, her jewelry, her life. I'm happy  Cheesy









I'd love to hear any thoughts or comments  Smiley
