1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / cups. on: July 15, 2009 02:29:05 PM
Hello all!

Here are some cups I drew on. My boyfriend and I found these very simple cups at our local dollar store. We loved how flat and simple they were, but thought they needed a little "something". I used a ceramics pen and drew the design on them.

On to the pics....

And a close up....

I would love to know what you think! Cheesy
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / plate. on: July 13, 2009 06:25:11 AM
I got this plate at the dollar store, and was going to break it up and use it in a mosaic. Well, I never got around to doing the mosaic and the plate has been sitting around my room for the last 2 years. I am planning on making a whole dish set, and wanted to use this plate to try out my ceramics pen. Here is what I did:

What do you think? C&C welcome! Cheesy
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting. on: July 12, 2009 10:29:48 PM
This painting was inspired by the Bible verse that says "Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised".
The first part of that verse got me thinking, and inspired this painting.

I'm not happy with it though. I like the dripping colors, but I feel like the background needs something.

I need your crafters expert advice.... what should I do with this?!

C&C are welcomed and needed! Cheesy
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / my acoustic got a sweet tat. on: July 12, 2009 10:14:29 PM
I love anything mendhi inspired, and I thought my baby Delilah, my acoustic, needed some sprucing up. So I gave her a sweet tat.

I drew the design on contact paper, and then stuck it onto Delilah.

She looks pretty B.A., if I do say so myself.

Here she is in all her glory....

a close up...

The color is a bit off in the picture... its not as red. It is more brown than the pictures show. I guess that is what I get for taking pictures at night inside. darn artificial lighting. Sad

C&C is always appreciated!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / hello, my name is artsy_fartsy, and i am a mendhi addict. on: June 21, 2009 10:24:16 PM
I think I have a serious addiction to any type of mendhi designs.

 I think they are beautiful, and this style tends to infiltrate my sketchbook. I am planning on drawing out some designs on some dishes for when I move out. So, this evening I decided to make some more sketches, and then a GENIUS idea hit me smack in the forehead. What if I made my designs into stickers so that I could cover any and every item around me with my obsession?!?!?!?! The closest thing to me was my computer, so I just HAD to make it pretty! I can't believe I walked around with a naked computer all this time. The horror. Cheesy

Here is the entire computer:

All I did was draw out my designs onto a piece of contact paper, and then cut around it and stick it on my computer! Easy!

A close up of the big design:

And the smaller design:

And a stupid picture of me because I am ridiculous, and its after 1 in the morning, and I am just too excited about my pretty computer:

So hence was born, some new stickers!!! I'm planning on making more. My eventual goal is to put some on my guitar, but I wanted to make sure that the contact paper wasn't going to leave an icky residue. I figured the plastic casing on my computer would be easier to clean than the wood guitar.

Anyone know anything about putting contact paper on guitars? I am way to afraid to paint my baby, for fear that I would mess it up. I also like that I could change the design whenever I get sick of it. Am I crazy, or could this possibly be a good idea?

ps: sorry for the icky icky icky pictures. I don't have good lighting in my room, and I was just to darn lazy to make it better. its late, don't judge me. Wink

C&C are welcomed and needed!!!! Cheesy
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First dress that looks presentable! i <3 infinity dresses! on: October 26, 2008 01:55:51 PM
I am now completely and utterly OBSESSED with the infinity dress! it is so easy and looks so beautiful on everyone. I saw so many people on here sad such great results I just HAD to try. So here is mine!

Its this awesome charcoal knit. i got it for a dollar a yard at Walmart! I love their dollar fabric! Its the only stuff i sew with, because I am a poor college student. Tongue

I am so in love with this fabric. its a nice breezy knit that feels so weightless!

Here is a close up of how i tied it. Yay strapless!

I would love to hear what you awesome craftsters think! and comments and criticisms are always appreciated!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / oh my! jelly fish! on: April 25, 2008 04:21:03 PM
so this summer i am going to be living in africa. and we ALL know no craftster can live without some of their supplies for 2 months. i needed something fancy to put all of my brushes and paints and other crafty goodness in. So, I found an old cigar box and went to town!

I peeled off all of the paper, which took FOREVER. and i still couldn't get it all off... so i used some sand paper to get rid of the stubborn bits. i used just cheapo acrylics and a sharpie. and then i glazed it with modge podge.

heres a top view:

the side. Tongue

and a close up of the jelly fish:

if you have any suggestions, i'd love to hear them!
