1  Lavender socks! in Knitting: Completed Projects by voodoolily on: February 23, 2006 10:00:12 AM
Lavender socks made just for a friend of mine because it was her request specifically, for lavender socks.  Of course since I could make them, I had to Wink.

2  Art Book: Project: Camera Release in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by voodoolily on: November 01, 2005 10:57:50 AM
Hey guys, I just wanted to show these off a bit because I'm VERY proud of them.

This was the second time I've ever made a zine/art book (I'm not sure which it qualifies as more Wink), and it was in support of a mail art/photography project I've been running for a few years now called Project: Camera Release.

A little about the book: handbound, coptic stitch, heavy cardstock cover, handmade stamps to decorate the front, full-colour, 32 pages, 5.5x8.5 inches, has all photos from the project, as well as additional submissions and biographies of all involved.  Copies are given to each participant.

But now, on with the photos of the book!

3  Toy/Box Cameras in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by voodoolily on: November 01, 2005 09:04:35 AM
Anybody else here into toy camera and box camera photography?

I love the use of cheap cameras (although none will ever surpass my love for my good old pentax K-1000).  They're far underrated in my opinion.  Sometimes simplicity is best.

Some of my favourites that I've taken:

Taken with a holga:

4  A few photographs - in the darkroom in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by voodoolily on: October 10, 2005 09:46:46 AM
I love photography, but unfortunately I don't have a darkroom at my disposal anymore.  Here's some of my work when I had the darkroom.  I am a fan of dodging and burning.  I'm hoping to get one set up in my bathroom when I move (into a place with ventilation in the bathroom!).


Sky burned in for effect, hand tinted with sepia toner.


The print was burned in while the rest of the area was left underexposed.


Same effect as the dog print photo above.

5  Reconstructed Tie change purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by voodoolily on: February 21, 2005 12:44:41 PM
I made a tie change purse!  Made from an old paisley print tie.  I saw these at a local shop and knew that I could just make one myself, damnit.  I wasn't going to spend $5!

Here it is:


Here it is open:


I think I'll try to get some snaps instead of a regular button, although I prefer the look of a regular button.  I have four or five more old ties to make purses out of, but no snaps, so I may just keep doing it this way.

6  Canvas Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by voodoolily on: February 10, 2005 11:48:31 AM
Hey all, it's my first post here even though I've been a member (and lurker) for a while Wink.

I started trying to make journals a little whilte ago, and finally stumbled upon a method that has worked for me.  I used natural canvas, ungessoed so you could see the original colour, matte board, embroidery thread, thread, and regular old computer printer paper.  I also used a coptic stitch and traditional binding (I believe that's what it's called?  I just sewed the pages directly to the spine because I couldn't get any glue at all to hold to my liking).



And this is the detail on the spine:



I sewed the canvas right onto the matte board using an awl to punch holes first.  I gave a few of them for Christmas presents and everybody loved them!

Just felt like showing it off Cheesy.
