1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Baba Yaga House redux on: November 09, 2015 02:03:46 PM
Still obsessed with little houses and with Baba Yaga's in particular..... here's the latest one, about ten inches tall, it's made from a piece of old 2x4, paper and polymer clay (the chicken legs)  with some findings and bits and pieces tossed in the mix.

The roof is wooden 1/12 scale doll house shingles I painted with a wash of quinacrodone gold and black acrylic paint.
I made an armature of wire for the legs and shaped polymer clay over them, baked them and painted them with acrylic paints.

2  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Odd, the little witch girl on: March 27, 2015 03:54:36 PM
I made this altered art doll for suereal for the "Be Awesome Redux" swap that racky and I organized.

I made templates for the wooden shapes and I learned how to use my husbands band saw, a drill press and a mega big sander.
I'll tell ya, power tools are pretty awesome.  Grin

Her face is from a drawing I did called 'Girl with a House'...I scanned it, put it in Illustrator and played with her face shape until
I got it to fit my wooden head I cut.
I made the tentacles from polymer clay and the little shopping bag is a jewelry box cut down to size.
(I took the bottom picture before I added the pumpkins and the micro beads)

It was a lot of fun and I'm in the process of making a few more!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / The Disasterous Tea Party (lots of pics!) on: March 22, 2015 10:54:10 AM
The Disasterous Tea Party or What Really Happened to Marie Antoinette.

I made this piece for Alpha Stamps. The theme was 'Marie Takes Tea' and I had a lot of fun coming up with a story
that was inspired by all the yummy little food miniatures, but I'm afraid poor Marie does not have
a happy end!  Cheesy

There was a fancy spread of delicious food...

And a glamorous crowd to partake of the delights....


Poor Marie!

4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Girl with a House on: March 20, 2015 10:15:04 AM
Mucking around with colored pencils and markers. I took a fun face drawing workshop a few weekends ago and this is a sketch
from my 'Draw Happy' journal. It was a fun class!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / New life for an old box on: December 15, 2014 08:23:31 AM
My bud racky found two small, identical ornament boxes some time ago and gave me one. It has been our intention to alter them and send them to each other. Well, you know how things go when you don't have a deadline!
We decided to partner up for the IYP and get these babies done. I'm so glad we did!
You can see the oh-so-adorable box she made for me here:

And here is the one that I made for her.

This was such a fun thing to play with! I love what racky did with the one she made for me and I had a blast making mine for her. I'm really inspired to get a couple more and play!
BTW, credit for the pics goes to racky....I was in such a hurry to mail, I forgot to get pictures. Thanks racky!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Halloween Chunky House (plus three) on: November 04, 2014 12:58:01 PM
Just a final curtain call for Halloween! Three of the houses I made for the Chunky House Swap and one I made for my sister....
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
(sorry about this first pic being so crooked)

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Miniature Christmas Tree Kit on: September 20, 2014 03:33:58 PM
My sister and I were partners for the IYP swap and she mentioned that she like my Christmas tree ornaments, so I decided to make her a kit in miniature-
A dozen 1 inch by 1 inch ornaments (plus two 1/2 inch ones).

I had an old cigar box that I covered with some nice red and green papers. I left some of the wood
showing as it was so pretty.

I made dividers out of book board and covered them with the same papers, glued them in and used some gold ink on the edges.

I used lots of different papers for the ornaments (which are 1"x 1" blocks) and a lot of Stickles sparkles and
metal findings and beads. I drilled holes top and bottom in each ornament (after I covered them with paper) and used E6000 to glue the beaded head pins in place.

I made a Merry Christmas banner and covered an oblong piece of book board in green paper to wrap the banner on to keep it tidy.
I found some tiny red and gold garland, tied them up with ribbon and added those as well.

A fun and very rewarding project!
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 'Jennie's Favorite' Plaque on: September 11, 2014 04:36:06 PM
I made this plaque for the fabulous Mistress Jennie as we're partners in the Snarky Housewife Swap.
It's a 6 x 6 canvas board with a big cut out of her favorite gin. I shrunk some tarot cups cards to fit the lady's hand. I love the one on the bottom left with the ice cubes and her legs in the air!

In the original image, she was being handed a tall glass of Budweiser. Yuck! perfect switcheroo.  Grin

I tried to get a picture of the thumb as it's a bit three dimensional, but it's not showing up very well.

It was fun making this for you, Jennie dear!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Bird Shrine on: August 14, 2014 05:56:22 AM
I made this shrine for PerfectlyBohemian in the Whimsical Shrine swap.
I found this little cupboard thingy at Goodwill. Here is what it looked like after I took the doors off and gave it a bit of primer.

Here it is finished:

The twigs are dead fall from my dogwood trees. The flowers are raw brass stampings enameled with nail polish, the little eggs are felted, papers are G45.

I also made little bird cards that I tucked into the drawer, but because 'out of sight is out of mind' I forgot to take pictures of them. Ah, well!
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Snarky 50's Housewives on: August 08, 2014 11:21:56 AM
