a pendant I made for a swap recently, mixed blue needlefelted with a little swirl, and a small shell, for the feel of the ocean, simple but effective I thought Smiley

best new craft idea on craftster? Artist Trading Blocks.  If you're not in this swap go look at the gallery, it's very cool.

I had lots of fun making my block.  I chose a street art theme, and went for a back alley look.  I added some metal that I rusted up in vinegar/water and salt/water solutions.  The metal that didn't rust (must have had a coating) I splattered with painting.  I put four rusty screws in and wound some wire around, my favourite part.

The cat stencil is a piece by brilliant street artist C215, in France.  What that guy does with stencils will blow your mind, look him up.

The message is: if you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission.  True in art and all aspects of life Smiley

Anyways, I'm happy with the finished result. 

(I ordered blocks online and they are not as wide as they should be )

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / moonless night on: January 20, 2014 05:30:42 PM
I did a little personal swap for a fabric art journal page with mariak, and I noticed she was a big twilight fan, so I found a quote from twilight that I really liked, the whole quote is "Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night."

I used a little embroider and the quote is on black, cross stitch, then added to the page.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / lungs on: January 12, 2014 12:19:42 PM
a friend of mine is having some surgery on her lungs next week, and her partner is putting together a book of words and wishes from friends, so I stitched (cross stitch and blackwork style) a little set of red and pink lungs for her, mounted on fabric like a fabric art journal page.  Of course I worked the word 'breathe' and a heart into the lungs.

8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / snowman in a box on: December 08, 2013 06:39:20 PM
I made a snowman in a paper covered altoid tin for a little winter pick me up for a friend

and a smaller version a wee snowman in a decorated box as a little extra in a swap

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 'whitework' snowflake on black on: December 08, 2013 06:35:16 PM
I made this for the secret santa swap, working on the black is a challenge especially for aging eyes Smiley

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / leaf embroidery on: October 24, 2013 06:40:55 PM
I wanted to try stitching on a leaf, so I tried this simple knot design, and made a little present for a friend.
