32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Steins in Love on: June 02, 2013 08:17:05 AM
 I am on the Monster Team for the Summer Nerd Games and this month's battle is Romance vs. Horror. Being on Team Monster I think Horror would have been easier but I was all for romance! I picked the most famous Monster couple, Frankenstein's Monster and his Bride. I found these slate looking hearts I bought from Michael's a long time ago for a quarter. I knew they would come in handy!  Wink  I photocopied some old ATC's of Universal Monsters I made onto card stock and cut them out. I found a bunch of embellishments I bought right after Halloween too. Glittery spider webs, bats, and spiders and thought they would be perfect for this project. Everything was from my stash! I love it when that happens!  Grin
 Here is the result:


and individually...

Bride

Frank's Monster.

 I have been trying to fill up a wall with random artwork so this is going up.  Wink
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shambala Bracelets on: May 25, 2013 06:09:04 PM
 Okay, No one may find Shambala bracelets that spectacular but I am not usually the jewelry making kind of girl. I had to keep muttering "Left, right, under, over, left, right, under, over....". I sounded like I was insane until I messed up, then I sounded like a pirate.  Embarrassed
 But I managed to get a couple of these little guys done. I was proud of them and sent them off to their new home for the IYP swap.



 I will be making more for Christmas.  Grin
34  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skeleton Key Necklace on: May 25, 2013 06:03:10 PM
 I decided to attempt one of those awesome Skeleton Key Necklaces I always see. I love them so much but I have issues with embellishing. I stink at it. Bunny1Kenobi was kind enough to be my guinea pig for the IYP swap. I tried several different variations and I went with this one. Now I have a ton of those little metal roses! So many ideas for them!
 I added some gears o make this a little more steampunk.  Wink
 
35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Dragonfly Locket on: May 25, 2013 05:54:33 PM
 I am terrible at embellishing and jewelry making. Terrible! I put on my big girl pants and tried really, really hard to make bunny1kenobi some steampunk inspired stuff for the IYP swap.
 Here is my attempt...
 I found this locket that you could fill up the inside of. I got a dragonfly charm and glued it to the front. I had a watch component piece that I glued inside and put a tiny key in it as well. The key can float around.


 Here's the inside...
 
 Thanks for looking!
36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Victorian Vampire Purse on: May 25, 2013 05:46:50 PM
 This is the purse that I made for bunny1kenobi for the IYP Swap. We both had this fabric pinned on our Pinterest boards and I was dying to buy it for something. I had to scale the pattern up to fit the entire scene on the fabric. I have never scaled a pattern before so I sort of psyched myself out when I did it. Ended up not being that big of a deal.  Tongue
 
 I love this pattern because it's easy, it turns out nice, and it showcases focus fabric so well!
 
 
 It has a black and gray speckled fabric and the interior is a white on white ivy fabric.

38  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Monster Wall Clock on: April 11, 2013 12:09:15 PM
 I guess this is where I would post this...

 I made this wall clock for a swap I was in about a month ago and realized I hadn't posted it up on any boards yet. I thought it was a cute idea and want to make another one for my iown wall.
 I just used a wooden circle and drilled a hole in it to put the clock parts. The ears are made from cardboard that I sealed the corrugated part of. They were originally suppose to be horns but we all know how crafts can decide to be something different on us.  Tongue  I was pleased with how easy and fun he was to make.
 I thought he turned out cute, if a little sad looking.

 and here is another angle...

 The top picture is truer to the actual colors.

 Thanks for looking!


 
39  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / This Bike is EYEING you on: March 10, 2013 11:58:05 AM
 My husband is completely obsessed with riding his motorcycle. Yesterday he had his first track day and it was quite the event for us. He went with one of his friends, Jack. While they were preparing their bikes Jack mentioned that he thought eyeballs were the headlights used to be would be funny. My husband immediately volunteered me.  Wink
 To be honest, I can't remember what kind of bike Jack rides. But here are some pics of what I did. I thought it turned out pretty nifty.

 These pics are the right way on my computer, I have no idea why they are coming out sideways....


 and here is a pic of both Jack and my husband, Steve's bike. Now they want me to put eyes on Steve's too. We will see...
40  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Edgar Allen Poe Purse on: March 07, 2013 07:13:56 AM
 My sister's birthday is coming up and every year I try to make her a purse. I wasn't able to do it last year due to a case of laziness but this year the Purse Craft-along came around just in time to save me! I will also have to give some credit to the snow storm that kept me home from work yesterday.  Tongue

 Here is the purse I made her. She is into Edgar Allen Poe recently. I got the Nevermore fabric and this is what I came up with.
 Front of bag

and the back

 inside I added the raven to the pocket because I know she loves ravens. I also used light fabric to make it easier to find things in.

And here is the whole thing so you can see how long the handles are

 The gusset is done in the same splotchy black fabric.

 I am going to fill it up with a bunch of Poe and bat stuff for her. Not quite sure what spells and maple leaves have to do with Poe but apparently they do (?). I hope she likes it.  Embarrassed
 C&C welcome and thanks for checking it out!
