1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / We dare not stop or waste a drop (Wedding Bouqets) on: January 23, 2011 08:18:29 PM
February 26th, 2011 is my big day. I'm so excited, and I'm super proud of myself with following through on my wedding crafting Smiley

In this post  have  samples of my wedding bouqets, and the necklaces I made for my bridesmaids.

In the picture below is a pair of the heels the bridesmaids will be wearing, and the copper beaded necklace I made. The girls will be wearing a beaded chocolate gown hemmed to tea length.


Here is the bouqet along with the shoes and necklace. I made the roses from coffee filters, and the carnations are airbrushed tissue paper.


A side shot of the bridesmaids bouqets, along with a stream of chocolate ribbon that is at the bouqet base.


Here is a shot of my bouqet. (coffee filter roses and carnations but with silver add ins.)


And another shot...with my lovely beaded bridal shoes Smiley


One last shot of me holding my bouqet.


Comments and critiques are welcome, I hope you enjoyed! More posts with other wedding crafts are soon to follow!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Undersea Overarm on: March 15, 2010 09:36:34 PM
So a while back I was in a Cryptozoology swap and my partner was a fan the giant squid.

With a couple old snazzy ties, some fabric and drawing up a Squid stencil...Vwa-la!

Comments and criticisms are very welcome Smiley

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Phoenix Necklace on: November 11, 2009 02:19:30 PM
I made this for my partner in the cryptozoology swap. It was my favorite thing that I produced:) The pendant is made from feathers and a shrinky dink I made, the rest is fuzzy beads and felt on wire:) I hope you enjoy! Comments welcome!

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Boba Fett and Pie on: September 08, 2009 01:46:23 PM
So my boyfriend and my brother both share a birthday in the same week so I thought it would be the a good time to make some shirts! However, both of the shirts I had problems with! This was the first time I have ever had any trouble with freezer paper, and I am not sure what went wrong?

So both with Boba Fett and the Pie shirt, some edges went a little funky. But overall I still like them:)

Boba Fett


And the back...


Not sure what happened to the "G" but I tried to touch it up with red paint, oh well:)


And then my little brother and I have an inside joke about pie. He is turning 10, so I wanted the shirt to be bright...I tried to use yellow, but boy was the a bad idea. The paint just got sucked up, so I had to go over it with a dark orange. The edges were really odd, so they have been outlined with black marker.





Regardless of all my troubles, I still like the shirts and hopefully the recipients like them too!

Comments and criticisms welcome!
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Kanye West Meets Kingdom Hearts on: August 28, 2009 11:40:20 AM
Blah, so my good friend Heather luurvs her some Kingdom Hearts, so I decided to play with the Kanye West song, "Heartless." And here is the result...

Stenciling....




Vwa-la!

(apologies on the odd lighting above my dining room table)


Comments and criticisms welcome!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Whimsical Feathery Fish Lantern on: August 23, 2009 09:16:02 PM
This is a lantern I had out of cheese cloth, art tissue, and mod podge. His body is made of wire and cds:) And he is quite feathery in place of scales.

He lights up with LED lights, but my camera is being a jerk currently so this is the best I could get that wasnt a hanging, light up shot : /

Enjoy!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ahh its a real monster bag! on: August 02, 2008 08:02:29 AM
So I saw the cutest monster bag here on craftster, and I decided the idea was too cute to not use for my friends birthday! However, with all my pieces cut out and ready to go, I realized how much sewing was going to be involved! So this purse became my first sewing machine project EVER. I was pretty nervous! ButI decided to toughen up and just go for it! Its not perfect, but I am pretty pleased with the result:)


The lighting in these pictures is definitely not the best, so I apologize.















8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / pastel butterfly on: July 22, 2008 08:34:21 PM
So this is a paste paper collage, which I covered in soft pastel. Can I just say, they are a mess to work with! Embarrassed  Also, while paste papering, I discovered if you lay down an old cd on the paint, pulling it up leaves a great veiny effect for leaves. (though its harder to see from these photos)

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / paper bag + masking tape + coat hanger = headress on: July 22, 2008 11:06:53 AM
This is a headress constucted from wire, paper bag, a broken coat hanger, and tons of masking tape (how I love masking tape.) Then I covered it with fabric, and used spray adhesive to make it shimmer. Its ALOT more sparkly in person. Tell me what you think! I hope you like.












10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Big tree on: July 22, 2008 10:02:36 AM
I am more of a 3D type artist, so beginning to work in 2D is a whole new experience to me. I would love comments, and criticisms! I used charcoal pencils, and was inspired by none other than the wonderful Vincent Van Gogh.
