1  Concert Series (Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman) Ticket Scrapbook - semi pic heavy in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NoShowJr on: May 09, 2015 06:56:09 PM
This is the product of several book making workshops over the past few years.  Last year, they had one for making "pocket" books.  The instructor had bits and pieces of various items we could use to cover chipboard as a front and back.  After I saw a Hatch Show Print, this idea actually popped into my head as we go to this concert series every year.  I hadn't gotten around to creating the books yet though.  I knew I wanted a hard cover/book board (from yet another class) instead of what we did for these books.  Eventually I do plan on going back and doing the previous years, but I wanted this one ready for 2015 for the inserts!  What I came up with is as follows....

Front cover with spine title for putting on a bookcase.

When you open the book, you go inside the Ryman Auditorium (where the series is held) from the stage view....

Inside the book...(Disclosure: I had to make copies of another ticket from this year to "hold the place" of the series tickets for when they come in as they aren't mailed out for at least a couple more weeks.)  Each page is using elements from the original Hatch Show Print to keep it uniform.  The only thing they didn't put on the HSP was the year.  Not sure why they never do that. 

The "inserts" in each pocket are a "journaling page" - to make notes after each show (because at some point, the shows start to run together like who surprised who on what show!), a photo (which is actually holding the place of actual concert photos from after each show - obviously won't have those in time to post this), and the ticket itself.  (As soon as those are available, I will post updates.  I promise.)

2  That's What She Said Stenciled T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: March 04, 2011 01:46:32 AM
As I said in my previous post ("Geek In The Pink...") this was done for a friend from high school.  This was actually the requested t-shirt that lead to the other.  I'm sure it's been done tons of times before by now but I actually think he used to use this phrase in high school which was long before "The Office" came out.  I saw one of these in an ad back in August though and told him I could make him one a lot cheaper and just as good.
If I'm remembering correctly, I used a pearl white soft paint on this one with a stencil that was a pain to cut out.  Font turned out nice, but not easy to deal with.  Ended up taking about an hour or so to do the cut outs for it in the end.  I remember having two white paints sitting there and I think I finally decided that the pearl would look prettier (even though it was for a guy).  I've already shipped them off to him so I can't look back at it.   Undecided
Thanks for looking!

3  Geek In The Pink (Jason Mraz) Stenciled T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: March 04, 2011 01:35:11 AM
A high school friend and I were talking about t-shirts and I volunteered to make him one.  That quickly turned into two when we were on the phone while I was shopping (AC Moore's $2 t-shirt sale) via phone and I found this pink.  He jumped all over the idea....as long as I was willing to come up with a design, make up the stencil, paint the shirt and eventually ship it to him.  All of which, I agreed to do.
I used a light pink soft paint with a freezer stencil.  It did take a couple of coats...but with working on two, I was able to switch back and forth.  I did learn - the hard way - that my little Tulip mini craft iron is NOT hot enough to iron freezer paper onto t-shirts.  Next time I will carry my heavier model.  (I had gone along with a friend to their office to utilize larger surfaces - thus the cubicle wall seen in the photo where I hung them to dry for the afternoon!)
Thanks for looking!
