1  Re: Winter Nerd Battles: December 1, 2014 - February 28, 2015 ~*Join Anytime!*~ in Craftalongs by gozer on: Today at 09:49:08 AM
 Snow Day!!! And I have actually been productive today (reading counts).

Prompt: February - Basket Case
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Stash
Project Name: Microwavable Bowl Holders
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I have seen these for a while and wanted to make them for my parents My Dad requires TWO bowls whenever he eats something hot or cold to protect his hands. It drives my Mom bonkers This should fix it! I used the 100% cotton batting I had left over from the quilt I had made him for Christmas. The fabric was found in one of my tubs I was going thru. My Mom loves batiks. They could also be used as a basket to hold anything else if they wanted.  Wink  PS. Using the quilting stuff I bought/had for the quilt also made this project really easy to do!

 Whoo Hoo! That was my last prompt!!!!!!!

  First up, apologies. I feel like I have been neglecting this board! I will comment later today. I have been fighting with the mortgage company all day. Ugh. They swear everything is on track now. We will see. BUT I wanted to get these projects in before the end of the month and the Winter Games. And before the 4-7 inches of snow they are now predicting for me tomorrow.  Cry


Prompt: February - Paint the Town
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Stash!
Project Name: Happy Octopus
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This was for the 4x6 Swap. I have no idea who got it but they got it today so I assume I am okay in posting up here. I used the Inktense pencils on fabric this time and these little water tube paint brush thingys to paint it into the fabric. Wanted to try something new and experiment a little. This was my first attempt to paint on fabric with them. They become permanent. I heat set it with an iron too. I frayed the edges for a fun carefree feel. It is sewn onto two pieces of cardstock to keep it sturdy. I used the inktense pencils that I got at Christmas and scrap fabric.

Prompt: Dye me a River
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Stash!
Project Name: Seahorse
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This was made by using the Inktense pencils on fabric again. I liked the effects on the first one better. This fabric absorbed it too much and it didn't get that water color type feel that I liked on the octopus. The intense pencils are solid ink that turn to liquid when wet - so ink! Should have put the Octopus in this category because he can actually ink. LOL!

for his birthday I made him some sleeping bags to go in the bunker house of the new addition. He gave me some blatant hints that he wanted these.

It's been crazy here and I will try to comment on everything tomorrow! Just wanted to get this in before I forget. I feel so behind this month!

Prompt: February - Battle - Paper
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Stash
Project Name: ATC's
Project Link: -
Brief Description: I love to sew and to draw so this was a toss up for me. But when times are tight or I am bored I find myself searching for some PAPER to doodle on. I did these ATCs for the ATC swap. The first is of a Highland Cow (you should look them up, they are adorable!), a plague doctor for bunny1kenobi, and a portrait of kosmicgirl.

 I somehow missed this gallery as well.  Roll Eyes Not sure what I was doing, just hanging out in last months.
 Patraw - LOVE those cats, so beautifully done. I like the snow cat best. With all the snow around my house lately it is fitting. Both as stunning.
 blupaisan - love your style. Adorable seal! Bright and fun Sunnerland card. Absolutely adorable fox on the birthday card! The cat miniature card is cute. I can't imagine drawing that tiny! The felted mouse is darling!
 Sheepblue - that is a crazy bathroom scene! So well done and on such a tiny scale! And all those teeth are really cool.
 bunny1kenobi - Stunning  Curiosity Cabinet card. So inventive and detailed! Gorgeous!!

 And speaking of amazing ATC's. I also received from bunny1kenobi and got an amazingly creative and phenomenal card from her.
 Behold... Red Riding Hood!

 It's my own little shadow puppet playhouse!. She added magnets to the back so I can keep it on my fridge and she added little holes to the top to store my puppets. She is so clever! Wink

 I just love that Huntsman!
 The card is fantastic and I love everything about it.
 Thank you bunny1kenobi!!!!!

 ArtsyCandice Love, love, love that chicken! Absolutely stunning. So much detail and the eye is incredible!
 YennaMuffin lovely little pony card. I like the color of the background.
 Bunny1Kenobi Your vintage tailor card is amazing. I love how graphic and stylized it is. That touch of lace in the corner is brilliant.

 Okay, I have had a cold with a horrible headache for a couple days now. I took come cold medicine yesterday that did nothing except make me lose my train of thought all day. I honestly thought I posted this yesterday. Sorry Allegrae. Here it is today.
 I have to admit that when I saw my theme as fav quote from book/movie I was nervous. It was book (non-movie). I really thought I was going to get a movie quote. LOL! But I should have had more faith. I got this amazing card from Allegrae on Saturday and I love it. I am partial to book page backgrounds and I love the whale and the sea grass and star fish. Fantastic quote too! Thank you!!


 And last night I arrived home to find this gem from Kosmicgirl. Talk about swap anxiety! I have it big time now. I got this phenomenal card from her for my Red Riding Hood theme. I am also a huge fan of Art Nuevo so this was absolutely perfect!. I love everything about it and I am so jealous of how you got the background to blend! Love, love, love her! Thank you Kosmicgirl and I hope your card arrives soon! 


 Thanks for the cards!!!!!

 Hey guys little bit of a project dump for today. Included is my offering for the Raffle.

Prompt: January - You're as cold as ice
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Cold ATC's
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I know how everyone on here seems to love bird, I just don't get it. They scare me to death with their pointy beaks and the way they nervously twitch around. Not to mention they can attack you from above and catch you unaware. Here is an ATC for the theme Bird Boy that I did for artsycandice. He's cold hearted, look into his eye (but not for long or he will attack). The second one is an ATC that I just did and may send out if it fits someone theme later. I was just in a drawing mood. She is an alien and we all know one day aliens will come down and destroy us all, a little cold if you ask me.

Prompt: February - Edward Scissorhands
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Stash
Project Name: Dr Who Tardis Scarf
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Just take a look at all that cutting. This fits the copious cutting prompt without tweaking it, LOL! This will also be my prize for the Games. I was going to do a purse but I wasn't sure about shipping overseas right now and these would be a lot cheaper to ship. Hope at least some of you like it!

Prompt: February - Stamp the yard.
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: ATC backs
Project Link:
Brief Description:  Although this project didn't utilize a stamp it is directly inspired by them. I recently rejoined the ATC swap and wanted to get a stamp for the backs. I looked and looked and nothing was what I wanted. I decided I wanted it to be more personal so I set about designing my own. It then took a sharp turn and I ended up making these.
Project Picture:


 I tested it out on the back of the card I sent Bunny1kenobi. Here is how it looks signed, titled, and dated.
 
Prompt: February - Love is in the air.
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Personalized ATC backs.
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: When I think of Valentines I think of cards. I don't have a Valentine this year but I am sending out a card! To my bestie Bunny1kenobi and I love that I have such an amazing and creative best friend. She painted this octopus girl for me in a swap last year (I think it was last year). I tested it out on some personalized ATC backs for her and thought they looked amazing. It was like they were made for it! I muted a couple out for different effects. These are on there way to you Bunny1. I just glue stuck (glue sticked?) them to the backs of mine.  Cheesy I hope you like them.

 That chickadee is adorable Acadian Driftwood. I really like your sketches! They have a nice style to them.  Wink

 I received from Spikefan last night. She sent me a very vibrant and fun monster card. I think he is really cute!

 Doesn't he have the sweetest little expression? Thanks so much Spikefan. I adore him.  Cheesy

Prompt: Red Alert - National Hobby Month
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points:-0-
Project Name: Curious Bunny ATC
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My favorite hobby besides sewing would have to be drawing and I think drawing slightly beats out sewing because I can do it at my desk at work. That is where this little guy got sketched out. I sent him to rockingbearranch in the January ATC swap.

 Hey guys! I got an AMAZING card from kosmicgirl today. I was so excited when she picked me because I have been a fan of hers for some time. She did NOT disappoint.  Grin I love this card. She picked my monster theme and this is her in her nieces monster hat.

It's actually a bit brighter but my flash kept leaving a glare.
 Love the card and thank you so much for it kosmicgirl!!!!!
