1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / the sun'll come out... on: July 29, 2013 12:41:28 PM
this is a get well card for my grandmother who loves the Annie, the musical.



first time using iris folding here, i ended up free handing it because i couldn't print out the pattern, but i think it came out pretty good!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / does framing my jewelry make them art? on: June 26, 2013 02:40:36 PM
I decided to make this after the thousandth time of hunting through my earrings to find something for an evening out, only to find some that I had completely forgot that I owned! (and loved!)

I found this frame in a charity shop so I took out the natty fruit painting, glued the moulding back on where it was hanging off and glued metal mesh to the back.



I like the result but a few things I'm gonna change for the 1.2 version. I wouldn't use the mesh I got from the art store, its mainly for forming into shapes so when I'm removing earrings its deforming the mesh a little. I think I'll have to go for the finest grade of chicken wire I can find. Also I was planning on having this hanging from a wall, but I quickly found out that its kinda irritating to take this picture down off the wall whenever I want to use it. I think I would need some kinda stand that could be supported by the sides of the frame so it can be free standing.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / squiddy birthday card on: April 09, 2013 12:33:19 PM
just a silly birthday card for someone with a love of cephalopods



inside it reads, 'Here's 10 squid for your birthday. Don't spend it all in one place!'
PS- for any international folks out there - slang for uk pounds is Quids, hence the Squids.

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Twilight Rabbit Ride on: February 16, 2013 05:34:36 AM
this is a commission for a new babies room, they only gave me the info that they wanted it to have baby animals in it so I kinda went overboard on making it more than that! I hope the baby likes it.

The poem in gold around the edge is from Alice in Wonderland -

A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky
BY LEWIS CARROLL

A BOAT beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear

Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:
Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream
Lingering in the golden gleam
Life, what is it but a dream?
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / mother's day/birthday card, 2 cards in 1! on: June 26, 2010 08:08:13 PM

My Mum had the unfortunate sense of timing to be born the day before Mother's day  Sad which meant that in my more thoughtless youth she got 2 presents but only 1 card (*ashamed*)  Embarrassed. So I decided to surprise her this year with a 2 in 1 card.





and both cards out of their mini envelopes.



she liked them, so i may try to do a variation on this next year too.

ps I know I'm posting this 2 months late but my internet has only recently got itself together...

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / care bear shadow boxy thing on: August 18, 2008 05:17:40 PM
Its kindof a shadow box...i think. One thing kind of led to another and now im not sure what it is  Tongue

Anyway, one of my freinds nicknames is clairebear, so for her birthday i drew her this...


I didnt want to send it to her all nude and alone so i put it in this box

and used my dremel to shape the clouds

but im not posting it in the finished section because im a bit stuck on how to finish it, the lid looks all bare and i dont know what to do with it.


Any ideas would be great, as im kinda running out of time as her birthday was kinda yesterday... Embarrassed
