thanks you guys <3
I'm really happy you enjoyed this :>

I had a lot of fun with her and am waiting to see about re-homing her though she may end up on my own wall lol.

these are all amazing! I love the details and the colours so so much.
my fave is the card sleeve but only because I'm partial to the theme. The back Koi and spine/ribs are definitely second faves though <333

I haven't really drawn or finished anything on paper in a very long time. So when i ordered markers for christmas, i decided it was probably time to rectify that.
Was feeling kind of blah about trying to draw something hip. something that looked like i put time and effort into it, without causing me undue stress.
sooo i tried to do a Spock Uhura for my Brother's GF, but that flopped. Ended up with a Lady Gaga-like hairdo on a head, and went from there.
Pencil/ink stage (bought some Staedtler pigment pens to replace my dead Zigs and rather like them.)


more textures and started colouring in the things i had decided on.


I was really unsure about her clothes. I really wanted to keep with just her glove being warm, so i felt a little trapped with the colours i had, but i think it came out ok :>


aaaaand finished.



Just thought I'd share. I'm pretty pleased with it TBH <3

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Shirts, One Scarf <3 on: January 27, 2010 10:57:00 AM
soo i work overnight stocking at Target, and am on pretty friendly terms with our price change team. so when something gets marked down again, i usually get to  know about it. When winter rolled in, i grabbed these two shirts for a friend, knowing i would make her something, but i had NO IDEA what.
seriously. i dove into this only knowing the shirts were for Manda. way to go, Kris. ANYWHO.

TL;DR:

I was a derp and didn't take any before pictures, but i think the shirts i had were a white screen printed small tee and a large green screen printed tee, both 75% off from the men's clearance. This is what i made.


I'll upload more detail-pics if requested, this won't get shipped for another week or so.

BUT, i am completely satisfied with this. I managed to keep all the screenprinting i liked visible, while still doing a blocky scarf style.  the back has finished seams so they won't itch her neck/face. I did the edges with a zig-zag stitch that actually slightly resembles a heart rate meter. (Didn't have the manual to my machine so i had to test it out before i actually did it! >.>) I also added a couple invisible-ish tacks to keep the largest bit from getting messed up too badly if she has to wash it.

derpderpderp. i talk too much.
anywho, if anyone would liek some detail shots i'll get on that :>

I usually stick to things I make with fabric when posting on Craftster, but I love my girls so much, I wanted to share them with you Esmond insisted on being shared, also.

The first four are originals  taht I used the same techniques involving: Micron, Prisma pencils, scrap book paper and matte frame (one has gold marker) I'm pretty pleased with the results, but It seems I have to pick a scrap book paper before I draw (finding a paper for Sleep was SO hard >.>)

First is Esmond, who kindly allowed himself to be my guinea pig <3


a Sub-marine Beauty who doesn't find her title as amusing as I do Cheesy


The Hookah Sprite, much inspired by The Twentieth Wife and The Feast of Roses (and a home-sickness for Pipes Plus in Austin, lol)


Last is Sleep, who is probably my favourite <3


Possibly my favorite of all my Tegaki-e posts (Tegakie.com)


thanks for looking at my stuff <3
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cage pads? on: April 28, 2008 10:06:31 AM
I recently got 2 baby girl rats, and not having the chance to buy bedding yet I'm in a make-do mode.
I was wondering though:

1)Is it possible to make some cage floor- dimensioned floor pad to help make clean-up easier? Something like layers of flannel/terrycloth sewn together to go into the wash?
2)I put scrap fabric slices in their cage for them to nest with, would it be a bad idea to shake them out and wash them in a lingerie bag?

I'd like to clean out their cage once or twice a week, but bedding is expensive, and patching up chewed-on flannel isn't :/
any thoughts?
