31  Re: Winter Nerd Battles --December 5, 2013 - February 28, 2014 - Join Anytime! in Craftalongs by gozer on: December 30, 2013 07:48:40 PM
 I have been busy rotating between being lazy and crafty since Christmas. I should have time to check out what has happened in the gallery since I was last at work tomorrow and comment. Sorry! But here's what I have been doing instead of internet-ing....

Battle/Challenge: December - Marching to your own drum
Team: wordy
Bonus Points: none
Project Name: A Home for Alice
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I never ever keep any of my artwork. I give it all away. You know how it is, all you see are the flaws and it drives you batty! My husband wanted my work up in the house and was getting really aggravated at me so we did a compromise, I would put up art work as long as it was Fairy Tale based. I thought he would back down. He called my bluff. So this is the first in a four piece set I will make for my home. It's totally me because it is a drawing and I love to draw and doodle all the time. It is done in Copic markers, my favorite medium. And it's fairy tale based which I love too.

32  A home for Alice in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: December 30, 2013 07:27:04 PM

 One of the big complaints that my husband has with me crafting is that I give most of my art away. I never make anything for our house. Anyone who draws knows we only see the flaws in the art we make.  Undecided We talked and found a theme I was willing to do and he was willing to put up with  Wink Fairy Tales! For my first one I did Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
 
 I used the sepia outline again on most of it but did warm gray for the rabbit and green for the hat. Loving the use of different colors for the outline! And yes, these are Copic markers again. My favorite medium.
 Hubby insisted on blue eyes so she got 'em. I know I am going to do four of these for my own house. One will be Red Riding Hood cas I am obsessed with her but I haven't decided on the other two... feel free to give me ideas!
 Thanks for checking it out!

33  Nature Girl in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: December 14, 2013 08:09:15 AM

 I worked on this for the IYP swap and my partner just got it so I can post up.  Smiley  She gave me a couple themes and forest animals was one of them. I knew I wanted to try that one. I wanted the girl to be younger and less serious than I normally do and it was my first time drawing any of these animals. I tried drawing a cat earlier this year and failed miserably so I wasn't sure how they would turn out. I like the bunny best. I have a soft spot for them anyways. They are just SO darned cute!

 This was done in Copic markers. My hubby surprised me with a couple new sets. And I tried using sepia outlining instead of black. I love the sepia! I think it made a ton of difference. Now I want to try the gray, blue, green, wine. I am just so curious on how they would turn out.
 Thanks for checking it out! I have two more drawings I need to get done before Christmas so I have to get started working on them..... Shocked

34  Buddha for the Holidays! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: December 13, 2013 07:49:55 AM
 I drew my (future) SIL's name for Christmas this year and I was so excited. She loves Buddha's and I had already purchased her this fabric just in case I got her. I have been looking for something like this for a while.
 She likes bigger bags so I used Emmaline Bag pattern. It's approx. 15" wide, 9" tall, and about a 4" bottom so it can hold a lot. This was my first time doing an intermediate pattern. It is far from perfect but I think it turned out nice. The bottom has a plactic base that you made a pillow type opening for and then put the interior over. I was unsure at first because I have never done anything like that but it worked!

 It also has two interior pockets. One with a zipper.

 and one without done in the exterior fabric for a little pop.


 Thanks for looking. I plan to use this as her wrapping and add all her goodies inside. I am so excited to give it to her. I hope she likes it!
 Oh, and I plan to make another one for my sister's birthday in Apri, in a different fabric of coursel. I think that one will turn out a little better since I am more familiar with the pattern.

 Just finished this up for my (future) SIL last night. She loves Buddah's and I was so excited when I found this fabric. This is a larger purse and it is far from perfect but I am still proud of it. It was my first intermediate pattern. It has a plastic piece in the base and you do this pillow type fold to keep it there and then you put the liner in.  Huh  Turned out though! It has two pockets inside, one with a zipper and one without. I already plan to do another one for my sister for her birthday in April. I figure it would be a little nicer since I am more familiar with the pattern. I am going to give this to my SIL with all her gifts inside, it's sort of the wrapping.

 inside pocket #1 (sorry the pic is a bit fuzzy)

 and the focus pocket.

 Okay, here are some better pics of Kwality570's monster calendar!!!!!!! (Imagine the Muppets type yelling there  Tongue )

 Ignore my messy desk, that means I am being productive.  Wink


Love that top hat!
and the mythical date

 See, lots more colorful. Sorry for the first round of dark pics. It was late and dreary out when I was getting pictures.
 Thank you so much Kwality570! I have it up at my desk and several co-workers have stopped by to look at it! We all love it!!!!

Battle/Challenge:  December - Bag of Holding
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Buddah Bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: It's a bag and it will definitely hold things.  Wink  I made this bag for my (future) SIL. She loves Buddah's and I was so excited to find fabric with them on it. This has two inside pockets. This was my first intermediate pattern. I was so nervous to try it. It has a plastic piece at the bottom. First time I ever did that.  Tongue  Anyways, I am happy with how it turned out and I hope she likes it.

yoopidou - I love those Elves! I just bought a fairy doll made with the string wrap like that at a craft show, not cheap at all! I wanted to figure out how to make them. If you would share your secret, or a link, I would be forever in your debt!
 
 I got the most amazing package ever from Kwality570. A reusable calendar! I know they have a word for them that sounds better but I can't think of it. But it's the kind that you can use year after year. It is so adorable! For some reason my pics are really dark. I am going to try to take better pics in the morning. It's bright and cheerful really. I put today's date and my two favorite pics, April and Friday.  Grin Each picture is CO cute. SO CUTE! I love these monsters.


 Oh and she sent me these awesome stencils from her gelli print(er). I already have ideas how to use these. They are so neat and iridescent and cool.

 Thank you so much for swapping with me Kwality570, you never disappoint!

39  These foxes say nothing in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gozer on: December 11, 2013 12:17:12 PM
 We moved into a new home a couple months ago and I wanted to put some art work up that was no so obviously my stuff. I decided to try some abstract since I normally draw girls.
 I picked two foxes playing in the snow. It will be a seasonal thing to put up.
 The background was done in metallic paints and richer, warm tones.

 then I painted over it all with white, cream, black and a touch of blue. I originally wanted this to be more textured but it was my first time doing it and sort of chickened out. Here is a close up of the crouching fox.

Battle/Challenge:  December - Throw a little glitter on it
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Sparkly Shambala Bracelet
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I am making a couple Shambala bracelets this year for Christmas. I got a couple cool focus beads at the store the other day and this one was just sparkly enough to count! I hope she likes it.  Smiley

 PS. I am banned from using glitter in my home so this was as close as I could get. You spill it once on the carpet and it seems no one ever forgets (and it never leaves either  Tongue).
