1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Door Hanger on: June 14, 2016 02:01:49 PM
 This may seem random to make in June but I made it for a friends b-day. She had it on her Pinterest Board and I figured I can make that!  Cheesy
 
 I switched it up a little from the Pin and made the spider at the bottom so it looked like they were hanging off his web, at least to me. I used ribbon to secure it and a staple gun to keep it all in place. The ribbon is eyeball Halloween ribbon from my stash.  It's made to hang on a door instead of a wreath.
 Thanks for checking it out so far from Halloween!
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Egon in the Garden on: June 14, 2016 01:55:09 PM
 This is a happy little painting of my happy little kitty Egon. That is the expression he always has. He is such a content and happy little man. I made this piece for the Wall Art Swap. I drew him out them outlines him with glue so there was a distinct boarder. Then I painted the background. After it dried I glued swirls on it and painted those for some added texture. The butterfly is some chipboard piece I got a long time ago and found in my stash. The painting is a light brighter in person but I couldn't get a good pic of it.
 Thanks for checking it out.  Cheesy
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / First attempt at Steampunk Canvas on: June 14, 2016 01:51:39 PM
 This was my first attempt at doing any sort of Steampunk type canvas art. I made this for the Wall Art Swap. I had most of the embellishments on hand. I had no idea I had that many sprockets but I did.  Tongue  I made the book page roses a while ago for another project that never happened and was happy to have a place to use them. I'm still undecided on the piece as a whole but my partner seemed to like it so I was happy.
 Thanks for checking it out.  Smiley
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Gold Steampunk Canvas on: June 14, 2016 01:47:29 PM
 I recently tried my hand at creating some steampunk canvases. This one is smaller (about 12x5 ish). I used what I had on hand and just tried to have fun with it. I have a fear of embellishing since I am not really that good at it. I'm trying to learn. I used acrylic paint, splatter paint, liquid ink, and lots of adhesive.  Tongue



 Thanks for checking it out.
5  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Undercover Fandom Angel Needed on: May 05, 2016 12:00:03 PM
 Hello!
 We are in need of 1 Angel for the Undercover Fandom swap.
 Original Thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=444628.msg5372065#msg5372065
 Gallery:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=446257.0

 Gozer (that's me) needs the Angel. This swap is for 1 Medium and 2 smalls. I have The Raven Boys (book series by Maggie Steifvater), Love and Decay (book series by Rachel Higginson), Star Wars, The Expanse, Ghostbusters, Step-brothers and a bunch of other themes. My Pinterest has a lot of ideas on it too.
 If your interested let me know and I will send you the full questionnaire. You will have three weeks according to Craftster rules.
 Hoping someone can reverse a negative feedback and get back into swapping!
 Thanks so much!!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Shadowbox Fridge Magnets on: April 26, 2016 09:36:27 AM
 I bought some of these small windowed boxes from Michaels and decided I needed to make them into shadow boxes. They were the perfect size for tiny little art. After I finished the first one I decided to throw some magnets on the back to make it functional too. Who doesn't love functional, right?
 This was my first one. A friendly little mushroom.  Cheesy

 This one was for my friend, Bunny1kenobi. I used alcohol inks to color the metal box and Copics to color inside. I made it fade but then the cut out of Nefertiti covered most of that.  Tongue

 I made this one for the Undercover Fandom swap. It's Pee Wee Herman's beloved bike at the Alamo.


 I had a lot of fun making them and I hope you like them too. Thank for checking them out!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / UP, Carl's South American Balloon Tours Shirt on: April 26, 2016 09:29:17 AM
 I made this shirt for the Undercover fandom swap. I haven't seen UP yet but I thought the idea of the shirt was really cute. The actual shirt is pale blue and this was the first time I have ever stenciled with more than one color. I have to cut it by hand and I think it shows but hopefully my partner still liked it.
 

PS. My carpet is not nearly as hideous as it shows on here. Not sure what's up with that.  Tongue

Details of swap:
Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars. The casual interest person probably wouldnt take a second glance at it but the true SW geek would get it immediately.
 I recently saw an apron with Mellark Bakery on it and thought it was brilliant. My sister didnt get it, even though she watched and liked the Hunger Games movies. Remember Drive Shaft from Lost (or Oceanic Airways, Mr Clucks Chicken Shack, there were so many)? I still have a Greendale Community College shirt from the TV show Community. And I got my Dad a drinking glass with a Red Pony logo on it from the fictional bar in Longmire. Or what about Fangtasias from TrueBlood? Soft Kitty from Big bang Theory. I could go on and on.
 How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so blatant about or it could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. The intent of this swap wouldnt be to force someone to read a bunch of books or watch hours of an unknown TV show.
 Yes, it's a long Questionnaire but if it's undercover than most would not have picked up on it so I want to be helpful to partners. Communication will be helpful too!

This swap will be for 1 medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please discuss that with your partner first.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Undercover Fandom Swap on: February 19, 2016 10:19:57 AM


Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example, I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars.

  How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? You would have to list out certain items or things that were specific to your fandom on the questionnaire to make it easier for your partner in case they werent as into it as you are but I think this could be a fun swap.
  This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so obvious about. It could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. Communication would be key in that case.

  Would anyone else be interested in something like this?
