1  Photos: Lomographic Images of Newcastle (IMG Heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by LanaTurnerSmile on: April 28, 2008 01:30:09 AM
Last year I went to stay with relatives in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, and thought it would be a good opprtunity to test my holga camera.  I really like the grainy, lo-fi of lomo cameras, and I was quite pleased with the results. I tweaked the lighting in Photoshop, as the lighting was not perfect, but there you go.


Thanks for looking ,any comments welcome!

2  Re: Fill a mug swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by LanaTurnerSmile on: April 17, 2008 01:29:53 AM
This is my fab package from Danni-Yelly!











I got a lovely handmade apron, two star coasters, some beautiful yarn and a set of knitting needles, a beaded necklace ( which I've worn everyday!), some yummy Hot chocolate , and some coffee sachets, a cool mug with it's own spoon, and a lovely letter too  Grin

I was so excited when it arrived, it felt like christmas!

I can't wait for Danni to get back from her hols and open hers.  It really nervewracking, as you hope they will like what you made.

3  Vintage Button Brooches! *Img heavy* in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: March 28, 2008 04:05:15 PM
I had a huge stash of buttons and wanted to make brooches out of them. I didn't want to use a backing material, so I piled them and glued them together and was rather pleased with the result. Here's what I made I made one for my swap partner, but it's not shown here (for obvious reasons!)

I have made some more, but no pics yet and I am considering mounting them on rings too.

4  Folded Flower (kanzashi) Brooches (img heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: March 06, 2008 02:09:10 AM
I made up some Kanzashi brooches as I had a ton of lovely square scraps left over.    It was a first try, and I was pleased with how they came out.  Even xbox 360 addicted husband was impressed!   Cheesy

I've made some more that I am going to add to bags as detail.

5  Mermaid Necklace (img Heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: March 06, 2008 02:03:51 AM
Well I had this idea floating around in my head for a month or so, and now it's finally done!

It took ages to get the beaded part of the necklace just so, as I was using seed beads, pearls, and nuggets of raw turquoise, so I had to get all the different elements in the necklace without it looking odd.  The idea was Mermaids treasure, so I wanted it to look like it had been made of sea-like scraps (but in a nice way)

I've got a few more of these pendants, so I'm going to make some more, but mayber more in blue next time


Thanks for looking in   Grin

6  Tiki Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: February 22, 2008 05:09:55 AM
I love all things Tiki, and I had some great natural beads I was trying to find a project for-so this was made!

It has shell beads, seeds, wood, and silver accents.  It took ages to get it just right, but as always, it was fun to do  Smiley

7  Sweetheart Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: February 22, 2008 05:07:04 AM
I felt like making something a bit girly, so I made this necklace.  I had a heart locket charm, and kind of got inspiration from there.

I used synthetic pearls, seed beads, rose quartz, and silver accents.

I don't usually make things like this, but I enjoyed it all the same  Smiley

8  Dia De Los Muertos shrine jewelry box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: February 22, 2008 04:59:46 AM
I made this from a plain wood box, acrylics, and sequins, with some religious bits and bobs, skull beads and synthetic daisies for the inside.

I base coated the main colurs then drew on the designs. I painted them and did all the highlights and shading (which took ages). Then I glued a blue sequin border round the main design on the lid

I did want to line the box, but I thought lining and shrining might be too much. So I coated inside with a layer of PVA with silver glitter in it, then glued my shrine pieces inside.  I added the flowers as I thought they were a nice touch.

I enjoyed it so much I'm doing another (but mermaid theme this time)






(Glue was still wet when I took the picture!)

9  Tattoo Scatter Cushion in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: February 22, 2008 04:48:14 AM
I had a pillow pad I'd bought and was determined to cover it in tattoo fabric.  It come out nice, better than I thought actually (I always have crafting doubts!)

10  Stripey Padded purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LanaTurnerSmile on: February 22, 2008 04:32:04 AM
These are a variation on a theme (been making lots of these lately!)

Same method as the rest, rectangles of outer and lining fabric pinned with wadding, sewn and reversed.


This one is Peach and Cream (love this fabric) with the button wrap finish and matching rag rose
(rag rose is just circles in varying sizes, sewn together and the edges distressed with a stitch unpicker)



This one, exactly the same, just black and white this time. But I did add a felt and sequin cherry detail for some flavour.
