501  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - Febuary in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: February 15, 2011 05:41:41 AM
I just got two wonderful cards from suereal. the first is on my fox theme -

the back of the card explains what images were used in the 'collage' - a deep sea sponge, a squid, and a fish head!  Came out great!  Very novel. I am in love with the eyes...
Next for a surprise category, a zentangle cat-

I like the cat's position and the variety of colors.  The back indicates that it was done on 'elephant poo paper' about which i demand to hear more!!
thank you so much, suereal. i was having a dreadful day when these arrived and it perked me up.

I got my Black and White themed ATC from curiousfae today.  Here it is

I love the different shading and the wonderful shapes I see in here.  It looks like  something that is very happily living underwater...
i also got a bonus one which I love even more!

Add color and bubbles and you have this little gem.  thank you so much, curiousfae. They are a fabulous addition to my growing collection.

504  Re: Fake Swapping Craft-along (ongoing) in Craftalongs by blupaisan on: February 04, 2011 05:29:10 AM
I finally finished my Wall Art for my partner in the fake Wall Art swap.  I think puzzles and pirate maps have something in common, so I took an old puzzle, painted and illustrated it, and cut out my own cardboard giant piece for the middle bit. I put it on a white painted canvas of someone else's painting that I got for a buck at Goodwill last year (knew it would come in handy some day...) The final touch is wallpaper strips burnt at the edges to make it look piratie mappie oldie.

The whole thing -

close up of our hero, pirate Palmer Piersson

And various close ups of the edge pieces -

sorry about the blurry pix - must have had too much rum when aye wuz shooting...

It is white with brown ink cause those are the colors in my livingroom.  I had a blast with this swap!  thanks for looking.

I made a fake crafted notecards swap with myself -
Here are the five I created.  I have always been fascinated with minimal black and white art with just a smattering of color here and there.

The outlines are done in magic marker, the coloring is chalk.

Here is my fake craftalong for one tiny stuffie.  She is my little kitten on a rug, both made from sweaters.

The quarter shows her size better.  She is due tomorrow.  She was fun to make!

507  Re: Tiny Fairy Tale House Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: December 22, 2010 05:10:39 AM

I got my house from petskin yesterday! In three words, funny, clever, adorable!! My tale was the town mouse and the country mouse. THe first view is the country mouse's place, complete with sleeping mousie in a nest and an acorn.
Next view, the town mouse (flip side of the house) with a window

that opens...

to reveal the notorious town mouse's housemate, that nasty cat!!
And check out the weather above the houses - It is nice and sunny in the country, then raining in the town. THis is soooo cool!  What a very very clever rendition of my tale.  Thank you so much, petskin!!

I like that kitty, too.
 Here is what craftyhsmom sent me - first up, the extra, a pendant which is soooo me, and which I began wearing right away.

Thank you!
Next, the whole lot if inchies -

and closeups so I can point out my faves -

I love the tryptic nativity, done with clay!

the red fuzzy one is front AND back covered with red string. So cozy.

Here, the little dressed up penguin is my favorite.

Check out this rudolph nose!  And the Santa belt is hilarious!
Thank you so much, craftyhsmom! I love them and many will go on my tree.

I have been so rude as to not post my two last pics until now, and I am sorry. I got two fabulous ornies , the Shadeweaver and lourapalmr! Here is the first -

Currently this adorable top hat is sitting atop a ceramic frog my daughter made until it makes its way to our tree. I love it. It has feathers, a white rose, and a gear on it. And a beautiful scroll up top for hanging.

a nest of sorts just chock full of steampunkies! Bees, gears, feathers, shells, and a clockface.
Thank you sooo much, ladies. You did a bang-up job on my goodies!
