Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451865.0
Brief Description:  I made a piece like this for the 4x6 art swap and really enjoyed the process. It was fun and relaxing and my life needs more relaxing things right now. So I made a series of them that I will be offering up in the STS Fall round. This one is a mouse and I am sure there were mice on the island the boys landed on in Lord of the Flies.

Brief Description:  This was my second one of the fox. The first one went out in the 4x6 swap. I think I like this one more because I fixed the nose issue that had my Mom calling the last one the orange cat. LOL! I made a bunch of these in an assembly line. There are pics on the link.

2  Steampunk and Oval Girl ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by gozer on: March 17, 2017 05:47:06 AM

Hey there! It's been a long time since I made ATCs and posted them up. Life got really busy and I started sewing more instead of drawing.
 I offered up two custom ATC's as prizes in the Games so I made these two. The themes were Steampunk and Oval frames. I ended up really enjoying drawing again. I have plans to make a couple more when time allows.
 These were done with Copic markers, a white gel pen, and Bristol board.
 

 Thanks so much for checking them out. I haven't been on this board in a while and the art is incredible. I need to come back and comment when I get off work. Lots of inspiration!

3  Fabric Animals Scrappy 4x6 Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: March 16, 2017 12:25:22 PM
 I made one like this for the 4x6 art swap and enjoyed the process so much I decided to make a couple more. Here are all of them together.

 I remade the original one I made for the swap and I think I like this one a little more. The foxes nose looks a little better and less cat like than the original.


 My cats are my babies so I had to make one but I think this one looks more like a rainbow cat than my intentions. Still learning how to do this type of coloring.


 Bunnies are just naturally adorable. This makes me miss my old buddy Bunicula.


 Mice are cute too. Here is a little one with a flower.

 
 and last but not least, a sloth. Just because.


 Overall I think the fox is my favorite still. I wish I would have darkened up the other some more but maybe next round. I plan on offering these up in my Fall STS store.
 
Here is the final one. My Niece saw these and requested an elephant. her b-day is in 3 days so I whipped this one up. Bunny1kenobi suggested turning his mouth up a bit after I said he looked sad. I think I will do that.  Wink


 After reading some comments I realized I forgot to say how I did these. I drew them out with Sharpie on off white fabric. Then colored them in with Inktense pencils and used a paint brush to water that down and set it in. Then I ironed them to heat set it. The background blue is the same off white fabric that I painted army green, magenta, royal blue, and teal. Then I put a coat of dark blue glitter paint over it. I used floss to tack the font and drawing down after I cut them out and then went over the edges with some decorative stitches on my machine. I love decorative stitches.  Tongue I wanted a kind of shabby, scrappy look so I left some threads untrimmed and set them slightly astray.
 Here are some in progress shots of when I was drawing them.


 Thanks for checking them out!  Kiss

 Okay, found a second to post up! Whew!
 I received from gala_apples and she sent me a fantastic package.
 First up is an awesome hoop from a book series I read called Love and Decay. It's a post apocalypse type serial book that I have been reading for years and love. Their are 5 brothers and they are all named after guitarist so this hoop works out perfectly! Then there is the hilarious "Erotic Friend Fiction" notebook. It fits right in my purse. I have a slight notebook obsession so this one really fit the bill.


 Then she sent me this amazing Raven Boys shirt. It's a quote from the book. AMAZING book. Loved it even if the ending was a little "eh", the journey more than made up for it. Love the shirt. It's a nice vibrant color for Spring and the stenciling is so crisp and clean. I will be wearing it on St. Patricks Day.  Grin Sorry for the pic. It is thrown over the back of a chair. It was the only place safe from the cats who kept trying to get in the shot.


 Thanks again Gala_apples! I really love my package!!!

 I got my artwork from Anmesia last night and it came already framed and ready to display. It's going to go in my kitchen. I have a collage of sorts with random artwork in there. This will fit in perfectly. The vine, heart, and tag are on top of the frame for a cool layered effect.

 Thanks Amnesia, love it!

Project Name: Fox Fabric Drawing
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description:  I made this for the 4x6 Art swap. It had many steps to it. All the fabric except the green on the very back was white that I painted or drew on. I drew out the fox first and colored it with Inktense pencils. I added water to activate or whatever happens and set that aside to dry. Then I painted the background with blues and greens, let that dry and then went over it again with super glitter paint. While that was drying (actually the next day) I wrote out the quote and painted on that. After everything was all dried I cut out the fox and hand sewed the floss around him and the quote. After that, I stitched it all together on my sewing machine. The back green piece is a thin canvas type fabric so it had some weight to it. I liked it and I am currently making some more of these with different animals. It's actually more vibrant than the picture and it's square. I cut the final out with the quilting square when it was all done.

Brief Description: I can't believe I didn't think of posting this until now. I got this about 3 weeks ago. It's inspired by some real people, namely me and my family. My last name is Rakes.

Project Name: Stencil Shirt
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I have not really had much luck with stenciling with white so I was extra excited to get this one with the fade. A shirt is something you would always need in the apocalypse. You could cover wounds, cover yourself, rip it into strip and tie things. Very useful. PS. The stencil was straight. My picture is crooked.  Tongue
