1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / Re: World's Best Pop! "Pop" themed Father's Day Gift (middling number of pics) on: June 11, 2014 06:19:09 PM
Cute idea!  Might steal it . . . Smiley
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: learning embroidery on: June 11, 2014 06:17:07 PM
It looks to me like an abstract of a human form dancing - the head down, arms flung back above the head and standing on tiptoes with one foot lifted a bit . . .

It's very cool, whatever it is!  Good job!
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Breakfast omnomnom on: May 19, 2014 07:15:38 AM
That's all so cute!  I love miniatures, but do not have the patience to make them!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Completely Machine Stitched Binding Tutorial (pic heavy) on: May 16, 2014 10:43:40 AM
Ataching to the back first!!!  So obvious but yet I never tought to do that!  That will make my quilts soooo much nicer-looknig!  I have done the machine-binding, as well, but always joined it to the front first - then I would miss some of the binding on the back, or have to have TOO much overlap so that it doesn't look great - this is fabulous!  Thanks!  Smiley
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: (Lots of) Zentangle pictures on: May 11, 2014 05:36:51 AM
My favorite is the swirl with the tentacle-like shapes coming out - looks like a cool sea creature!

As to the brand, I like to call mine "zendoodles", though they kinda mock that, but it gets around the copyright thing, and I don't have to worry about their rules.  I actually started doodling completely free-form, then tried to follow their steps/rules in a book and it killed it for me.  I lost all the enjoyment, and I'm still trying to work back to where I was.

I know some people like rules, and there are times when rules are necessary, but... not in this case, and not for me!
Thanks!  I like the tentacles, too.  Wish I could be more intentional about making things look as I want them to!

I have always doodled, and what I liked about the Zentangle stuff was three-fold. 

First - it talked about using the small cards to work on, so that projects do not seem overwhelming at the outset. 

Second - they do not start out with an image in mind that they are trying to achieve - it just grows as you do it, which was very freeing for me, as I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to drawings, and so never wind up finishing anything! 

And Third, I am a therapist, and I liked having a different tool to help people enter into a more mindful state - with the small scale and "no wrong mark" philosophy, it would be an unintimidating, fun way to be mindful.

So, while I don't like the idea of the copyright and all that, I can credit it with opening up a new and fun art form for me!  I just won't follow all the rules!  And ZenDoodle sounds just fine to me!  Smiley

That's awesome!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Invictus: Gallifreyan Papercutting on: May 11, 2014 05:25:39 AM
Very cool!  And I second the question - how did you translate it?  I'd have a hard enough time translating it to French or German or something, let alone a sci-fi language that is written in circles!

That's fabulous!  Great job, mom!!  Smiley

That's fantastic!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Simple Kaftan Blouse on: May 02, 2014 05:32:15 PM
I really like that!  Did you use a pattern, or just wing it?  And if you used a pattern, could you post what it was?
