11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / japanese binding (again) with even more pics! on: August 25, 2009 04:19:19 AM
I am addicted I guess   Grin
So I made a few small  sketchbooks and a book calendar (planer?) for 2010. I used all sorts of paper I had lying around, even paper I allready drew on. I modified the japanese binding and made my own patterns.
Now I have so many I don't know when I will have the time to fill them all with drawings. I guess I'll use them as presents ...










The front of the planer (it used to be a box for chocolates) :

The back side (it used to be a notebook cover) :

The inside:


this one has a drawing by Waterhouse

The planer took me ages because I had to cut up as many pages as there are weeks ... Oh well I hope it will survive the year inside my bag Smiley

I hope you like it!



12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Japanese binding (with pics!) on: August 23, 2009 09:56:47 AM
About a month ago I went to a camp thing and apart from a lot of other things I learned about the japanese binding from a really nice guy (which is allways a good motivation). So a couple of days ago I tried it again because my roommate wanted to make a book for her nephews birthday. She wrote a story and I illustrated it.
Today I made 5 scetchbooks using variatons of japanese binding and I love it! I don't think I'll buy scetchbooks any more...
I made up the patterns by the way ...
this is what the finished book looked like (it is more than simple really):

here my roommate is "repairing" the words

this is what my scetchbooks looke like (I had real fun binding them in different ways):

a closeup:

I really can't say how much I like making them Smiley Oh and I made the paper for the scetchbooks myself out of all sorts and kinds of papers (and some herbs so now my sketchbooks smell nice)
I hope you like them!
13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mermaid doll on: August 11, 2009 05:52:58 AM
This is a doll I just finished. I modified this pattern http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/boy/. I finished it in just 2 days.  Grin



I like the way the hair turned out. It was also a lot of fun making the fin. I sewed different fabrics over one.
Tell me what you think Smiley
14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Robert Pattinson doll! Could be Edward Cullen... on: February 01, 2009 06:55:47 AM
I made a Rob doll Grin
I wanted to make a doll for a while now and when I found this pattern http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/boy/ I just couldn't wait any longer.
 I don't really like the way his head turned out, but I guess its OK since it's the first one I ever made. It took me about 4 days to make it. Which is a lot because I'm not really very patient. The fun thing is that I didn't buy anything to make it. I had scrap pieces of fabric at home ( I had to dye the one for skin, because I didn't have skin coloured fabric and I dyed it with black tea, I guessed he would look more like Edward Cullen from Twilight if I left it white and I didn't want that. Not that I have anything against Edward) I made his jeans from my old jeans and his hair from brown mohair. It's too dark but I didn't have any other brown wool (I had  orange and wild red but then he would look like Edward... Cheesy) I even made underwear for him (gray boxer brief). I also want to make a shirt and shoes for him when I have time.
 I hope you like it!
