2  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / CHALLENGE 107 ENTRIES / Abandoned Art Message in a Bottle on: March 06, 2015 04:36:49 PM
I recently made up these bottles to take to a friend who lives near the beach in Toronto, it was too cold that day but I left them with her to abandon along the beach boardwalk in hopes people will find and smile at my little gifts.

The small bottles are 4 inches tall.  They are painted with blue and green glass paint.  For the inside I cut a little linocut and made prints with my message to "Make Waves."  I rolled them and added a few silver stars with each print.  Then stamped and wrote on tags to encourage people to pick up and take home the bottles.



3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / cardinal glass dish on: January 25, 2015 11:52:46 AM
I recently discovered 20th c illustrator Charley Harper and I just love his work.  The strong graphic animals are the best.  So I took inspiration from this Cardinal With Berries print and made a glass dish with red cardinal.  I'm pretty happy with the result. Smiley

4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / R2D2 in glass and other ornaments on: January 18, 2015 07:24:41 AM
I enjoyed making some xmas ornaments for friends in fused glass this year.  My favourite was this R2D2.



And I made a lot of trees:



5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / fused glass belt buckles on: January 04, 2015 08:11:46 AM
In looking for new projects to make with fused glass I ran into the idea of belt buckles.  I ordered these two antique nickel blanks off Etsy and fused pieces to put in them, each combines two different pieces of glass for texture and colour.  I found nice leather belts at a place called Bootmaster in Toronto with snaps to change buckles.

I didn't get the dimensions or shape perfect and ground them down to fit. 

Overall I was happy with these as gifts as were my friends Smiley



6  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / the fairy door on: September 24, 2014 07:52:19 PM
For a friends garden, place this little fused glass door against a tree and create a magical gateway for fairies Smiley

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / big pink flamingo on: September 19, 2014 03:16:45 PM
For the bird swap I made this big pink flamingo.  Each part of the bird is two layers of Teesha Moore style patches in various pink fabrics, and then I sewed the two layers together.  The legs are tshirt pieces braided together.  Overall the flamingo has some good cuddly substance made up of the two layers of quilted pieces.  It took a while but I was happy with the result, scrappy and fun.



8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / fused glass pendants on: September 14, 2014 06:46:24 AM
so excited to do my first fused glass, and can't wait to do more.

Made these simple pendants with scraps from the bigger project and love how they look and feel.  Have happily gifted them already.

9  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Robot fused glass on: August 13, 2014 04:26:50 PM
I finally took a fused glass class recently and loved it.  One of my projects was this robot.  I love robots.  I'm really happy with it.  The instructor's idea to use clear glass on the grey for the eyes and chest panel worked out great.  I can't wait to do more projects.  And try slumping.

10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / felted soap on: August 05, 2014 06:49:48 PM
I just had to try it, and it was super easy and fun.  When you use just run under water and gentle rubbing lathers it up!

youtube indeed has a video showing you how to do anything.



I think I'll make a few for fun little gifts.
