1  Re: The Art of Makeup in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by kissjacksparrow on: September 18, 2006 01:00:17 PM
Wow, what a great topic. Everyone's pics are so great!

In case my pic does not work, allow me to explain. My close friend is a free-lance makeup artist (lucky me Smiley). And her gift to me was to do my makeup for my wedding. Awesome gift, huge stress reliever! One of the many themes running through my wedding was peacock feathers. So she did a little fancy gold, green and dark teal eyeliner on my eye to match. She rocks!   Grin



I apologize that the pic is not the best, and hopefully I can get it to work. Thanks for looking!

I am glad to see that someone is actually have fun with makeup at their wedding.  Most of the weddings i have been apart of in the past few years it was always 'keep it natural'  even my sister hows a glam-rock chick and would wear red eyeliner on a nothing-special-tuesday.  She wanted everyone in the wedding to have natural makup - not even lavender to match the wedding colors Sad  what a square! 

It looks super pretty int he picture, but i bet in person it was stunning.  You go crafty girl!  Cheesy

2  magnetic eyeshadow pallete in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by kissjacksparrow on: August 06, 2006 03:23:26 PM
boredum has gotten tje best of me so i have decided to embark on a new project.  Cosmetic renavation 101!

I have lots of those individual eyeshadow pans - It's always been a little annoying to go through them to get the right color when i have a million of them.

A lot of cosmtetic lines make magnatic compacts where you can switch the eye/lip colors - GENIUS.  But im a cheep-o, so heres my version:





One metal case was used for a holidy lip gloss collection, the other was a barring case I took from my boyfriend.  

I used magnetic stips on the back



It was easy, but messy.  If anyone wants to do it, and wants instruction let me know.  It took me a few disaster before i got a method that works.  I lost a some in the process - slavaged what i could in empty lip gloss pots if it was a color i just could not live without.  Still was well worth it.

These are just temperary.  I want to get a big metal pencil case that can fit all of them in and decopage it - just because I'm cool and crafty like that, and why not make then cooler then the ones you can buy in the stores!?!  And then make it a little friend from an altoids tin - for on the go.  Cheesy

thanks!

5  Strawberry Shortcake wallet - 2nd wallet - done on the fly in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kissjacksparrow on: July 27, 2006 05:35:30 PM
Here is my attempt number 2 at making wallets.  This one was much more successful.  Again, I didn't use a pattern - I just made it up as i went along.  I think I've almost got it all down!

I still am having trouble putting in a clear view window for a photo ID



Next time i will pay more attention to the top piece - Poor Miss Shortcake is up side down

Here are the innards:


and now with all its stuff


thank you so much for looking!

7  Jade "vintage quilt" long wallet - 1st wallet attempt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kissjacksparrow on: July 26, 2006 10:02:06 PM
This is my first attempt at a wallet.  I winged the whole thing - with a few minor things to try next time, it turned out pretty well, except for the fact that this crappy machine I'm barrowing went insane when I was about finished, and so there are some sloppy stitching lines.  I wanted to put in a clear ID view pocket, but i didn't make my dimesons such that it would have worked i don't think. 

It was simple, i may try it again with a little more planning, and maybe make my first attempt at a tutorial - i have many in my own notes, but never did one with photos on craftster. . . . If anyone particularly likes this version because i know there are many other on craftster.

Here it is, closed:


Here are the nifty insides:
(The cards actually go almost all the way inside the pockets, this is just to show you that they are there and that they fit - nice and snug)



Now here is the front and the back, all opened up.


thanks for looking

8  pink elephant bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kissjacksparrow on: July 25, 2006 10:41:00 PM
I used this fabric as the proto-type for my prom dress - it was clearance at Joann's and i think it's just cute as hell!



This is the second attempt at this particular bag - and much much better then it's predecessor.  I added to the design as well by creating some pockets and a cute little closure on top.  Also, the fact that I took the time to use interfacing made  world of a difference.

I am very proud of this one - looks very professional in my opinion.



and the insides & new additions to the pattern:



thanks!

9  My Beloved Skull Prom Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kissjacksparrow on: July 23, 2006 11:43:43 AM
I found this skull batik fabric and was in love.

I used it to make my prom dress - it was 2 months of hell to get through it but it turned out great and i love it!

I also made Alex a tie to match

It's taken me a really long time to get this posted because i don't have all the picture on my computer - but here are two, so you can get the idea









It was truly a dress to make a statement.  I wanted to do something tottally crazy & different (and secretly, i was destined to outdo my friend & rival who also does crazy-crafty things, too)  Not to mention, it was a statement towards out lame prom theme "bling-bling"



thank you so much for looking - validation would be much appreciated!  Wink
