For Christmas, I handpainted this box for my sister, and filled it with stationary supplies. I used a metallic paint for the dragon and the base of the box, it was called Champagne. I really like it, it's very shimmery. The background is just black acrylic paint. It has the triple thick spray glaze over the top of it for protection. I really love that glaze, it makes hand painted boxes look great, and helps preserve them. Hope you enjoy!
I had no idea what to get my BIL for Christmas, but I knew that he loved my dragons that i paint, so I decided to make him a shirt. I sketched the dragon on first with a white charcoal pencil, and then filled it in with red fabric paint. Hope you enjoy
Here's another of the maternity shirts that I embellished for my sister for Christmas. I sketched the heart and wings on first with pencil, then used a brush and fabric paint. I went for the more sketchy look, I wanted it to look like a sketchbook doodle. Hope you enjoy it
(Sorry about that, it now has the right detail picture!)
My sister is pregnant, and due in February. She didn't have alot of different maternity shirts, so I decided for Christmas I would embellish a few for her, since maternity clothes that aren't HIDEOUS tend to be massively expensive. So, I hand beaded this goddess onto the front of this shirt from her. It's got a light blue edge, a dark blue inner line, and an orangey gold swirl in the middle. She adored it, tho I'm not sure that might have to do with hormones lol. Anyway, hope you enjoy it!!
I just made these for a swap. I now have half my family asking for their own set. These were just plain black martha stewart christmas balls from kmart. I used acrylic paint. Both are my original faces. One for the Holly King, and one for the Oak King. I hope you enjoy them!!
Without further ado, The Holly King in all his glory :
I just did this for a swap. I had a hard time parting with it, I really liked the way it turned out. It's all watercolor. I did the background, then sketched the kokopelli over top, and used black watercolor for him. Then I realized I didn't have any mat, so I painted the border on LoL. I know cheap, but you gotta do what you gotta do. And it really helped the painting to PoP. Hope you like it
So, I jumped on the bandwagon. I thought the tree of lifes were the coolest thing I had seen in awhile. So I had to try my hand. I've made four already lol. I forgot to take pictures of the other three before I sent them off as presents. This is one I made for a swap on here. I used Soladite. It's acutally a darker navy blue then what my crappy cell phone camera made it look like. Hope you enjoy. I had fun making it, though next time I will have to use bandaids on my fingers cause they were sore after I was done.
I just made this for a swap partner. It was my first freezer paper stencil. It blobbed out of the edge on a couple of spots, so I used fabric glue and added the fine silver glitter around the edge. I also swirled some of the silver glitter into the middle of the moon to try and recreate the shadows on the moons. It isn't anything complicated, but I enjoyed the way it turned out, and I definatley learned a few things about using the stencils. Here it is, Enjoy
I made this for my fellow Dr. Who loving friend. It's nothing special, I just thought it was funny, so I figured I'd share it with you. All I did was cut out the Dalek and the Santa hat, and then I had an actual string of plastic lights that I attached to it. So, anywho, here it is. Hope it makes you Dr. Who fans smile like it did me and her!
I just did this for a swap partner. It was my first attempt at beading anything, and I have to say I LOVED it!! I had so much fun. This picture is kind of crappy, so sorry for that. The fabric is a black/grey smokey type print. Very simple. I used lime green seedbeads for the goddess. It's a small comfort pillow for her bed. I scented the stuffing with Chamomile, lavender and vanilla. It was really nummy smelling hehehe Anywho, I hope you all enjoy it. I had an awesome time, and can't wait to bead some more things!
