11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Holy Mackerel!! on: May 19, 2013 06:56:59 PM
This is quite possibly not the right place for this - but close enough I think!  Smiley
I've been playing around with the idea of making a stringer of fish- in fabric - ever since I saw some carved out of wood on Etsy.  I loved the idea of having them hang on the wall somewhere, so I devised my own plan.  These are made of canvas - gessoed and then painted with acrylics and textile medium.  The paint is kind of shimmery and I intentionally frayed the edges on the tails and fins - just cause it kinda gave them a look I was going for.
  All done - I gave them hooks and strung them up - ready to hang.  Smiley
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Gashlycrumb Reaper on: April 03, 2013 09:02:55 PM
I participated in the Edward Gorey swap, and made this for my partner.  The Gashlycrumb Tinies (for those not familiar) recounts the tragic demise of 26 children (in alphabetical order.)  The cover of that book is a classic Gorey illustration - the reaper surrounded by the kids.
  AAAAAANYWAY... here he is - about 16" tall, fabric and sculpey.  His umbrella is stiffened fabric and he has a loop on his back so he can hang on the wall.  Smiley
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Big Ol' Stump Pillow on: October 19, 2012 11:11:05 AM
-After finding that my log pillows seemed to be in demand I thought I might try my hand at something a little different.  I figured maybe this one lends itself more to propping yourself up after a long day at the saw mill.  Wink  It's pretty chunky - about 12" across, 15" or so high.  Maybe not for everyone's home decor...but I think it's kinda fun.  Smiley
14  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Owl on: October 10, 2012 10:55:49 AM
-I made this for the Vintage Halloween swap, inspired by some smaller vintage owls.  He's about 12" high, made of fabric and covered in (gulp) glitter.  The eyes were an accidental find, but I can't imagine any other use for those buttons than owl eyes!

and here's another view (borrowed from rackycoo!)  Smiley
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Grand High Witch on: August 29, 2012 08:08:11 PM
-as a child that is. As part of the Wicked Child tin Swap my partner picked "The Grand High Witch" from "the Witches" by Roahld Dahl.  Now everyone KNOWS that real witches are bald - so of course my child had to be bald!  The number 86 (at the top and on the bottle) refer to Formula 86, which turns people into mice.

This is a quote from the book

And a good look at the frozen Charlotte head I found - pretty darn creepy if you ask me!

This was just too much fun!!
16  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Itty Bitty Owls and... on: July 19, 2012 05:32:01 PM
Here's another little something I added to the swap package I did for the Put a Bird On It swap...

They're quite small - (that's a nickel in the background) - Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Screech Owl and Snowy Owl - oh!  And their teeny tiny supper.  Smiley
17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / More Tiny Birds on: July 19, 2012 11:12:32 AM
For the "Put a Bird On It" swap I did a take off on a project that I did last year.  The last one was 25 tiny birds - this time it was six - all of them on my partner's list of favorites.  Smiley  Done in ink and watercolor:

1" x 1", raised mount

-and here's a closer look.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
18  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dia De Los Muertos Pin Cushion!! on: June 01, 2012 11:19:40 AM
I was part of the sewing Accessories swap and this is one of the things I made for Missing Willow. (I made something similar for sweetyetevil a couple of years ago!)
  I used Sculpey to form the skull over a styrofoam skull.  I then hollowed it out, baked it and painted with acrylics.  The actual pin cushion was glued into the hole afterwards.

And the back, with a skeleton goat - because MW lives on a farm with goats.  Smiley
19  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Wicked Forest Match box on: May 17, 2012 03:13:51 PM
Well, with some trepidation I joined the Wicked Forest Match box swap - so many great crafters that seem to make working in miniature their specialty!  The talented and wacky Suereal was my partner, and one of her themes was "pissed off wood nymph" - so that's what I went with.  The "skeleton" is a tiny box of penny matches, covered in Polymer clay and embellished with moss and acrylic paint.  The inside is a tiny polymer nymph in a bed of moss and twigs...  unfortunately there was some sort of mishap on the journey to Canada, but suereal has reportedly fixed the problem.  Wink
  Here's what I did!

...there's a fungus among us...

...Shh-hhh - you don't wanna piss her off!  Wink
20  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Chocolatey Goodness??? on: January 24, 2012 12:06:48 PM
My partner received this yesterday - so safe to post.  Smiley  This was for the "Wicked Vices Altered Tin" swap - and, one her vices being "overindulging in sweets", I sort of accidentally came up with this.  It's all polymer clay on the outside, stuffed with delicious fleece filling.  Wink  Bon apetit!
