51  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!
52  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.

54  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!


 
55  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...
56  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!
 
57  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / LotR ATC's on: January 14, 2013 07:40:44 AM
 I recently did a private swap with RaeRaggs and she wanted some Lord of the Rings cards. The only character that she requested was Gollum and she let me pick out the rest myself and surprise her. I chose Gandalf the Gray (I always liked the Gray better than the White) and Legolas.
 I did two of them a bit different buy adding touches of color to them. I think it turned out better on Gollum. I was scared I would mess up Gandalf if I messed with him so I left him alone.


58  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Girls, girls, girly-girls on: December 06, 2012 10:09:32 AM
 Last month I had did a couple ATC's for the ATC swap and one for myself. They ended up all being girls. I didn't realize it til I had them all together.  Roll Eyes 
 Here is the one I made for myself, Red Riding Hood. I darkened up around the wolfs mouth and it looks a little better. I will try to update the photo but we all know how hectic it is during the holidays.

 I tried a different style for this card and I really liked it, my husband did not. I am sort of second guessing it because of the hubby's response but he is always very honest and I appreciated it. It's Alice from Alice in Wonderland.

 Another Bride of Frankenstein. I have done her a couple times but I think they keep improving. At least that is what I tell myself.

 And after seeing a couple great Medusa cards from Leather and Lace a tried one too. It was intimidating making one after seeing how awesome hers turned out (check out the Oct ATC swap for them).

 And I did a private swap with pilarfarmer. She wanted a plus sized mermaid. I really liked the way her fishy body part came out but I think she should have been chunkier. My husband called her pregnant (there is that honesty)  Undecided  and said she needed bigger tata's. After sending it I sort of agree.


 Thanks for checking them out. As always C&C welcome.
59  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Silhouette Shadow Box on: December 05, 2012 01:46:35 PM
 First of all, I am so proud of myself for spelling silhouette right the fist time! LOL! That being said I will procede....

 I did this piece for the Wall Art Swap and my partner just received so I thought I share here too.
 I wanted to do something sort of dimensional but that was protected so her cats wouldn't destroy it. I was walking around Michael's and came across these shadow boxes on sale and grabbed up three. You never know when you will need a shadow box, right?
 Embellishments and I are not usually very friendly with each other and I have been trying for the last couple of months to learn so I can add something more to my drawings. The shadow box is sort of like a leaf box (snow globe) thing too because the leaves at the bottom are not glued down so they can be shaken up.
 I thought it turned out clean and bright looking.  Wink

 Yes, the flash is right in the picture but I couldn't avoid it. And the proportions of the people and leaves are WAY off but I sort of liked that. I thought it made it look whimsical. Hopefully my partner did too.
 Since I have more shadow boxes on hand I was thinking of trying a bat themed one for my sister when I have time.
 Thanks for looking!
60  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Lennon and Red-head Personal Swap on: November 27, 2012 06:46:01 AM
 I asked stickerchic87 to do a personal swap with me because she made me an amazing Red Riding Hood ATC and I wanted it a little bigger so it would show up better on my wall. I love truly the card! so in return I sent her a couple of ATC's.
 I used her themes from the on-going swap and choose The Beatles and Ginger Girls. This is what I came up with....

 Lennon (hopefully he is recognizable) from The Beatles.
 
 and a ginger girl singing away. I really wanted to add freckles but then I chickened out. I have no idea how to do that and make it look right. I figured I would practice some before I butchered up a card.
 Thanks for looking! C & C welcome.
