Yay! What a fabulous swap this has been...I'm so excited to see the rest of everyone's loot! (Mine included...woohoo! tomorrow is ship-out day!!)
Well, now that Spooky.Kitty has posted, (great collage skillz, btw
) I don't think she'll mind if I add a few shots I took, pre-shipping?
Ok, so first, I made a superdoomy coloring book, which I had a helluva time binding...lol
Here's a shot of the scalloped pages...I used some pictures she had on her wist and some others I spent hours and hours cleaning up in MSPaint, then I printed them all out and used a comb binding I found in the trash at work to keep them together. They were sent with a pack of markers and crayons..hehe... I love it!...I must make more coloring books!
Here's the companion cube patch, it's just teeny tiny crosstitch (28ct) mounted on white felt....this took forevvvvver, but it came out pretty good, so now I'm inspired to do something else with the leftover aida!
The assortment of doomy magnets I made...they're random magazine clippings glued on cardstock, which I then modpodged and laminated the top, stuck some magnets on the back, and voila!
My favorite was the sugar skull...it's really colorful!
Closeup of the design I painted on the bag...the skull is an iron-on and the rest was freehanded in acrylic paint
An extra I threw in, for our mutual love of bellydancing...a hair ornament! It's made of 2 silk flowers, some beads and coins, and a bobby pin on the back...
And an action shot, to make sure it wasn't too heavy with all the dangly bits...(please disregard the unflattery of this picture...it was hair-dying day, hence the roots and blondness
Oh, and the first couple of pictures are of a wooden box I decorated, shaped like a book...here's a shot of it open. I painted the inside and edges a sparkly brown, and modpodged a bunch of randomness on the front, back, and spine...there's also a little gold clasp to hold it closed.
I think that covers it...I have some other pictures, but none with the stuff all together, sadly....it was lots of fun making everything...if anyone has questions about how something was made (or what the heck it is...lol), feel free to ask!
Keep the pictures coming!
