11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / some christmas prezzies!! on: December 29, 2007 09:03:13 AM
I made this image for my old boss' son and my bf's step-nephew. His nephew was reading it and making dino noises when he opened it! I was so glad he liked it! I used a simple dino stencil from stencilry and added the rawr! and the scales to make it look more like a dragon or at least something that would go rawr!  Cheesy Anyway here's the pic...

So far this is the only pic I have. I was so excited that I forgot to take pics and am now waiting for them from the recipients  Tongue.
I'm having trouble uploading my bf's christmas shirt. Once I get another pic I'll post that one too.
Thanks for looking!

SO I made these for my man in September for his birthday. He has shown every single person he possibly can them and squealed in glee each time!
It's Frank!! Although he kinda creeps me out a little...

And he's very into his turntables and lost a similar shirt so I made this one

I <3 stencilry!!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / better pics of my thanksgiving plaque on: December 29, 2007 08:03:28 AM
Hey I posted this already but used a cell phone. Don't know how to fix the old post though. So here's a pic with an actual camera!
Same thing as the Christmas plaque except I saw something similar in a country mag that I had to recreate.

Thanks for looking!
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas decorations img obese :P on: December 26, 2007 08:01:13 PM
These are the ornaments I made for our first tree! First ones are made from seed pods

Then I had a few wooden icicle snowmen I had painted and distressed a while ago I put in there too Smiley

Then I made this collage to bring some Christmas cheer into our "sun room". Poopie helped pick out which paper should be used where and gave his artistic opinion. I was hoping to get him in the spirit and not so bah humbug-y. All the decorations worked!! Grin

What do you guys think?

So my amazing BF got me the HP digital camera I wanted for Christmas and the new Dean Koontz book!!! Yay I can post stuff whenever I want and not rely on my cell phone!!! Had to brag a little Roll Eyes

So I needed something for our front door for Christmas and couldn't decide what to do. I knew I wanted something that would represent both of us but it couldn't be too ridiculous for Poopie's sake. So I came up with this. It says Merry Christmas in Italian on the top for me and in Gaelic for him.

I painted it in acrylic on basswood and then antiqued it. Took bout 45mins or so after I figured out what I actually wanted to paint! What do ya think?

I bought the newest issue of Country Sampler and found something similar to this and just had to paint it for myself! I stylized the crow a little, added a foot, and antiqued it once I was done. For only a few hours work I'm pretty happy! Sorry it's not the best picture--had to use a cell phone  Embarrassed  maybe I can get my dad to agree to let me "borrow" his digi cam!

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first post--2 Bags! on: October 19, 2007 05:58:05 PM
Well this is my first attempt at posting something that I made. This first one is the third bag I made. I'm going to give it to my Grandmother for Christmas. It's a purple floral print with Olive green trim.

 And I made a flower pin because she is very into nature. I just have to finish the edges and glue it to a pin backing.

 While I was making that one my boyfriend's dad dropped by. He asked me to make one for his fiance as a wedding present. I was really nervous but it turns out she really liked it and is already using it!
It's a very small red and blue floral on a white background. She likes things on the conservative side so I used all the same fabric and put red ric-rac on to brighten it up. I love ric-rac! The lining is just some tan fabric I had. I put in my first zippered pocket ( thanks to the post with the tute!!) and a key fob so her keys won't get lost.

I hope these pics work!! Thanks for looking!
