1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Gustave Courbet on: February 06, 2009 12:35:20 PM
My best friend loves Gustave Courbet, and this is her favorite painting by him:

I looked everywhere for a print of it with no prevail.  I finally got so fed up, I decided I would just make a stencil of it for her.  After I made the outline in Photoshop, I thought I was in over my head:

Patience and steady hands were the key.  After laying down the paint and removing the stencil from the canvas, I was overjoyed:

It sucked waiting for a month to giver her this gift.  She loved it.

My favorite band is The Matches, and this is their logo:

And this was my pumpkin:

It was a fun little project, took me an hour and a half to do, but totally worth it.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Product of paper cut skin... on: September 30, 2008 08:47:30 PM
I've been hand making mix CD cases for a while.  Just a basic little square case with a track listing.  I decided I wanted to start doing something a little more special.  This is my first project:

From the cover, each page has a line from each track.  The last page is where the CD is.  And the back cover is where the actual track list is.  Most of the pictures came from Smithsonian Magazine as well as History Channel Magazine.  I was a little strapped for cash, so it was assembled with Elmer's school glue and painters tape.  The bottom stitching got ripped during assembling, but you learn from mistakes.  Beside having to work in those confines, I'm very proud.  Just wish I could see the look on the lucky friends face who receives this in the mail.  Smiley

Wasting time in small town Arizona, took some art glasses.  One of which being stained glass.  This was my first piece (tiny amount of sand blasting):

Last class, I made an ashtray in 2 hours:

Currently working on a hummingbird piece for my mother.  First time using an electric cutter, my hands bare the evidence of being a first time user.
