231  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who, Ravenclaw & Grffindor Bracelet & Earring Sets on: June 03, 2011 08:27:12 AM
While making several Doctor's Companion Bracelets lately, I've been ordering and using a great many of these Muse Tokens, by Tim Holtz.  All the tokens are lovely, but I've only been using the "Wonderful" tokens in my companion charm bracelets.  Problem is that each package only contains one of the "Wonderful" tokens that I need, leaving me with 11 other tokens to find uses for.  The other tokens included in the mix are Significant, Thoughts, Moments, Unique, Excellence, Courageous, Genuine, Knowledge, Lifetime, Forevermore, and Journey.  

Earlier this week, I created some more Doctor Who related sets with them.  Using the Journey token and some TARDIS blue beads I made these two sets of Journey Bracelets & I Love the Doctor Earrings.  The first is made of opaque blue glass, and the second is blueberry quartz.

Blueberry Quartz

Last night I continued on that same theme, but focused on some Harry Potter goodies.  I created a Gryffindor themed Courageous Bracelet and Brave at Heart Earrings set out of deep red glass and amber fire-polished Czech glass beads.  The earrings are made from red glass hearts and Swarovski crystal bicones.  

While I was at it, I did a Ravenclaw themed set too.  Knowledge Bracelet and Wise Owl Earrings.  And yes, I know the colors of Ravenclaw house are blue and bronze in the book, but as I had silver Knowledge tokens to use up, I went with the movie color scheme of blue and silver instead.  And they really do look rather pretty together, if I do say so myself.
232  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Woodland Friends Charm Bracelet on: May 08, 2011 03:00:42 PM
I've been on a charm bracelet making kick again.  This one I had been meaning to make for a while, but hadn't gotten around to until recently.  I wanted it to evoke a quiet walk in the woods on a sunny afternoon.  The leaves are a beautiful frosted glass in shades of brown and green.  The beads are a mixture of cut glass , Czech glass, and seed beads in emerald, chocolate, and smoky topaz.

Charms include:
4 tiny acorns
maple leaf
pine cone


large acorn
pear leaf

And the whole thing is finished with a flower and leaf toggle clasp.


233  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hermoine's Gryffindor Charm Bracelet on: May 08, 2011 02:49:02 PM
I've been making lots of loaded charm bracelets for a while now, and a great many of them have been inspired by my love of Harry Potter.  Oddly though, I've made a few Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin bracelets for various people, and I never managed to get around to making a Gryffindor one!  

This bracelet was inspired by the character of Hermoine Granger, one of my favorite characters in the series.  She exemplifies so many of the qualities of Gryffindor House. Courage in the face of danger, unwavering loyalty to her friends, and the willingness taking a stand for what is right, no matter what others think, and no matter the cost.

The charms include:
~a red glass evil eye, for protection from evil
~a goblet for the Goblet of Fire
~a unicorn from the Forbidden Forest

~the golden snitch from Harry's first Quidditch match
~a stag, for her friend Harry's Patronus, which saves them in Prisoner of Azkaban
~Hogwart's castle
~a lightning bolt for her friend Harry

~a lion for Gryffindor House
~a wand from Ollivander's
~Fawkes, symbol of the Order of the Phoenix
~a shining star
~the Silver Doe which led them to the Sword of Gryffindor
~a quill & inkwell for taking copious notes in class

~a Hungarian Horntail Dragon
~a Celtic hearts, for only through a stout heart and true friendship can we overcome evil
~a potion bottle for Hermoine's adeptness at brewing Polyjuice Potion

234  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resin Bottle Cap Pendants - Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Skull, Heart on: May 08, 2011 02:37:31 PM
I made a ton of resin filled bottle caps a while back, and then promptly forgot to do anything else with them.   Roll Eyes  So I pulled some of them back out this weekend to turn into necklaces.  I think they came out pretty cute.  I am going to have to make more of them soon....

Details of the Swap:

Many of us are eagerly awaiting the release of Part 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Sometimes it seems that July 15th will never get here.  Well never fear my crafty friends because this swap will help you get through the waiting period!  Unlike a normal Harry Potter swap, this swap is designed specifically to prepare your partner to go see the film (theoretically on opening night, if they so desire).  This does NOT mean that craft items have to be based on the movie.  The goal is to create items that your partner can enjoy AT the film, and while waiting for hours in line.

Each participant will be crafting 3 items:

1 wearable item (like a tee, House tie or scarf, piece of jewelry, etc.)
1 accessory, toy, or game (like a wand, a stuffie/doll, or game of Exploding Snap!)
1 edible snack or treat***  (Can be sweet, savory, salty, or even "swalty"!)
           ***For notes on the snack/treat component, see below.

Package will include 1 Large, 1 Medium, and 1 Small item.  (Or if you prefer the points counting system, one 3 point item, one 2 point item, and one 1 point item.  For more info on size guidelines, see HERE)   You may choose which category items to create for which size.  For example:
You could make a "Large" stenciled hoodie, a "Medium" wooden wand, and a "Small" jar of Lemon Drops from Honeyduke's.  
You could make a "Large" Skiving Snackbox full of tons of different types of homemade candy treats, a "Medium" crocheted toy Pygmy Puff, and a "Small" house themed bracelet.

These choices are left up to you, but make sure you take into account your partners interests and information from their questionnaire when deciding what to craft.  If they are going to the movie alone, a giant box of candy might be too much, while if they were going with a large group, it might be more appropriate.  Please be sure to check the original interest thread for a large list of links to HP themed craft projects: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II Interest Thread, including inspirational crafts!  And while you're at it, you can check out the GALLERY from Round 1!

This swap has a long crafting period, nearly 7 weeks.  Please make sure you keep in touch during that time, both with your partner and your organizer.  Check in on the thread at least once a week, and if you plan to go out of town for a while, please let your partner and organizer know, so we dont worry about you!   Smiley  This swap is expected to be very large, and we have 3 organizers.  You will be assigned to a specific organizers House, and you should send all your communication to THAT person.  When you send, and when you receive you must PM your specific organizer and your partner to tell them so.  Please make the subject line of your PM; Decked Out for Deathly Hallows: Sent, or  Decked Out for Deathly Hallows: Received to help us stay organized.

Please note that all official Craftster Swap rules will be observed in this swap.  New swappers (and even old swappers) should be sure to review the Swap Info Guide as well as Swap FAQs, and the Information and Tips for Swappers pages.   If you do not see an answer to your question, you are also ALWAYS welcome to talk to any of your organizers via PM.  

This swap is designed around an event with fixed time frame. The film opens on July 15th (or the 14th at midnight), and many, if not most of the people in this swap plan to attend that day.  If you send your package late, you risk your partner not receiving it in time to enjoy at the film. Please weigh that, against the size requirements, and your own time commitments when deciding whether or not to join this swap.

***Notes on the Snack/Treat Requirement: Including a snack or treat is an intrinsic part of this swap and is not up to negotiation, HOWEVER... If you fear your kitchen-spells are not on par with Mrs. Weasley's, you can send store bought snacks provided they have a crafty component.  A "crafty component" could be to decorate a pretty jar to put "Lemon Drops from Honeyduke's" in.  Be sure to note in your questionnaire that you are not a great cook, and I'll partner accordingly.

If you have special dietary concerns, be sure to mention them in your questionnaire, AND be sure to mention some good alternative snacks for your partner.  For example, perhaps you can't have sugar, but pretzels or a tin of fancy tea are good alternative for you.  If you are a GREAT cook, and want to make lots of homemade snacks, note that too, and I will attempt to find you a partner who has lots of friends to feed!  Finally, remember that the goal in crafting & swapping is to BE CREATIVE.  If you're having trouble with this component, try to think outside the box.  Ask questions in the thread, PM your partner or organizer, go through the Round 1 Gallery, and most importantly BE CREATIVE!

236  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Doctor Who TARDIS Tote Bag - Reverse Stencil Mini-Tutorial (Pic Heavy) on: May 02, 2011 08:50:50 AM
I recently Angeled in Round 5 of the Doctor Who Swap.  Since my partner had already waited so long for a package, only to be flaked on, I wanted to make her Angel package as quickly as possible, but with maximum adorability.  I decided to make her a stenciled tote bag with the TARDIS traveling through the Vortex on it.  

But instead of stenciling the TARDIS itself onto the bag in blue paint, I decided to instead get a blue tote bag and stencil & paint AROUND the TARDIS.  Here's a mini-tutorial of how I did it.

Start by finding a stencil shape that you like.  You will want to make sure that it has some details to cut from inside it to give the image some definition, and that it has a clearly defined outline.  I cannot seem to find the source for the exact stencil I used, but if I do, I will add a link here.

Next you will need a sturdy canvas tote.  I found this one at Hobby Lobby for just a few dollars.  They come folded up, so be sure to give it a good press with your iron, and don't be afraid to use some steam.  You really need to flatten out those fold lines or you won't get your stencil to stick as well as you would like.  Also, don't be afraid to iron it a few times, letting it sit for a few moments between pressings.  Wrinkles and fold lines in cotton can be tricky!  If you really can't get them out, then try this trick used by costumers:  Put equal parts distilled white vinegar and water in a small spray bottle, and give it a shake.  Spritz onto your problem wrinkles, then iron.  The vinegar helps relax the fibers, allowing them to press flat.  As for the vinegar smell, don't worry.  It will fade and disappear in no time.  Allow the bag to sit a few minutes to cool and dry out from any vinegar and steam.

Figure out where you would like your TARDIS (or any other object you wish to stencil!) to be.  Be sure to remember that when you fill the tote bag with stuff, the bottom will be bulging, so those bottom few inches of fabric will actually be on the bottom of the bag, rather than the sides!

Once you have your placement, go ahead and iron down your stencil.  Make sure to get into all the tiny corners and edges.  If they are not ironed down securely then you will have color bleeding around your image.

Now we're ready to do our first color of paint.  I chose to start with the windows and the light spilling out from the open door.  Give them a coat of white fabric paint.  If you don't have fabric paint, you can use craft paint, mixed with Fabric Medium.  (Which is found near craft paint in your local craft store.  Mix according to package directions.)  Depending on how dark your base fabric is, you may need to give lighter colors of paint more than one coat for good coverage.

Second color of paint!  Instead of a stark black, I chose to go with a very dark purple-black for the recessed areas of the TARDIS, as well as the Police Box sign.  With darker colors you generally only need one or two coats of paint for nice even coverage.

Now, while you've got the dark purple paint out, let's start the shadowy parts of the Vortex.  Use a piece of natural sea sponge to get irregular and organic shapes.  You may need to test this out a few times, and blot some of the excess paint off of your sponge before moving onto the fabric.  I recommend testing it on some brown paper.  I went with concentric circles of color, to show the twisting and turning of the Vortex, and left some space blank.

During all of this, be sure to be careful not to drip paint onto the white areas of your stencil!

Next, it's time to add some highlight to the Vortex.  I mixed up a light blue paint, and again added concentric rings, filling in the space I left last time.I went light on this coat, so that I could add in some metallic paint in the next step.

To give the tote more dimension and depth, I added a layer of metallic silver.  Instead of using a metallic paint however, I used the same light blue highlight paint, and added in Jacquard PearlEx Metallic Powder.  Go lightly over the highlighted areas, and blend some gently into the darker shadowy areas as well.  You want the colors to be layered and blended, not sitting in neat rows beside one another.

After a first light coat of silver paint, give it a few minutes to dry.  When the shine of the wet paint begins to dry, you will be able to see just how much of your metallic pigment is visible.  After letting it dry for a little while, be sure to turn the project, as the silver can look more or less heavy depending on how it catches the light.  If necessary, add another coat of metallic pigments.  Remember, you can always do a second coat, but you can't take off a coat that was too heavily applied.

Check pack once you think you are done, and note any areas that might need touching up.  Once you are happy with your paint job, go ahead and let it dry completely.  After it is dry you can peel back the stencil.  It will likely rip into pieces, and this is normal.  You will not be able to re-use the freezer paper stencil.

Now, stand back and admire your new tote bag!

238  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gryffindor Jewelry Set - Bracelet, Winged Key Pendant, Star Earrings on: April 10, 2011 10:36:36 AM
I just finished another lovely round of One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swapping.  My partner was not only a Gryffindor, but also just happened to love red and yellow.  I decided she clearly needed some pretty House themed jewelry to show off, so I created Madam Gryffindor's Jewelbox for her, including a pendant, bracelet, earrings, and pin.

All the goodies together in their trunk:

Dear endymion mentioned that she loves Winged Keys, which were featured in the first book.  I found this fascinating pendant that comes apart, allowing you to add Pandora-style beads to it. 
Winged Key Pendant:

The beads can be changed out at any time to suit different moods.  Here is a pic of how the pendant works:

Lion Bracelet:

Clip-on Star Earrings:

Lion Kilt Pin:

The trunk itself was stained golden outside and deep red inside.  The House crest was decoupaged on. 

239  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The Doctor's Companion Charm Bracelet on: April 07, 2011 07:58:53 PM
A few months ago I fell in love.  Head-over-heels, once-in-a-lifetime kind of love.  It was sudden.  It was magical.  It was intense.

It was with a fictional character.

While participating in the last round of Matchbox swapping, I created a Doctor Who themed matchbox for my partner spidermom.  I had never seen the show before, but she had so many cute Doctor Who related items on her wist, and I was sure I could pull together something adorable for her.  After scheming, creating, and shipping my TARDIS Matchbox, I got curious.  I sat down with Netflix while DH was out at his weekly board game night, and started watching.  And that was all it took.  A few short hours and I was in love with a madman in a blue box.  At that moment I began dreaming up this bracelet.  I spent weeks finding just the right charms.  Ordering them from all over the place.  Some from local Etsy sellers, some from Asia, and some I made myself.  So, without further ado, here is my entry, The Doctor's Companion Bracelet.  (Or "His 'Plus-One' Bracelet"!)

The beads are a mixture of glass, crystal, and freshwater pearls in TARDIS blue, and the black of empty space, with a few clear AB crystals.  Overall the color palette was taken directly from the TARDIS itself, but it also reminds me a lot of the designs for the episode "Midnight", set on a dark and barren diamond covered planet.  The charms are a mix of Tibetan silver, pewter, and handmade bezels.  The clasp is a VERY sturdy lobster style clasp.  I had wanted to pick out something pretty and decorative, but being the Doctor's Companion does require an awful LOT of running, so I figured a secure clasp was better in the end.  Cheesy

The charms include:
Hope Bead: "Oh, I always live in hope." - The Doctor
Star: Part of the wonders the Doctor sees in his travels.
Fob Watch: Also known as the Chameleon Arch, a pocket watch in which the Doctor can store his memories and personality, while becoming temporarily human.  Martha, this watch is me! - The Doctor, Human Nature (Handmade charm)

Two Hearts:  My favorite alien has two hearts.  A condition which can save his life, but also lead to twice the sorrow when they are broken.  "Only one heart working... how do you cope like this? - The Doctor, The Shakespeare Code
Planet of the Ood: Also called the Ood Sphere, whose inhabitants will sing the song of The Doctor-Donna for ages.
Union Jack: "And Rose...  Love the tee shirt!" - Capt. Jack Harkness, utterly incorrigible flirt, The Doctor Dances
(Also part one of that episode: "And I'm looking for a blonde in a Union Jack. A specific one, mind you, I didn't just wake up this morning with a craving." - The Doctor, The Empty Child)
Bad Wolf:  "I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words... I scatter them, in time and space." - Rose Tyler, The Parting of the Ways

Angel Wing: One of the most terrifying creations in science fiction history.  Angel statues that can kill you, but ONLY when you aren't looking at them.  "The angels are coming for you, but listen, your life could depend on this: don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you could believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away, and *don't blink*! Good luck." - The Doctor, Blink
the TARDIS Time And Relative Dimension in Space; the Doctors wonderful Police Box shaped time machine & spacecraft; aka the sports car of time travel. (Handmade charm)
Stethoscope: [Donna looks shocked as the Doctor pulls a stethoscope out of his rather fitted suit pocket.]  "They're bigger on the inside." - The Doctor

Teacup: Tea! That's all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses... The Doctor, the Christmas Invasion
Wonderful token: "He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and can see the turn of the universe. and... he's WONDERFUL." -Tim Latimer, describing the Doctor, The Family of Blood

Handy Spare Hand: My hand there. My handy spare hand. Remember? Christmas Day. Sycorax. Lost my hand in a sword fight. That's my hand. Hello. The Doctor, Journeys End
Masked Lady: Clockwork robots in the Girl in the Fireplace

Earth: And when you go back to the stars and tell others of this planet, when you tell them of its riches, its people, its potential, when you talk of the Earth, then make sure that you tell them this... IT. IS. DEFENDED! - The Doctor, saving the planet once again in The Christmas Invasion (Handmade charm)
Key to the TARDIS
Doctor: "By the way, you'll be needing this." [reveals a TARDIS key hanging on a string]
Martha Jones: "Really?"
The Doctor: "Frequent fliers privilege."  - The Doctor, 42
Banana: Well, among other things, I *think* I just invented the banana daiquiri a couple of centuries early. Do you know they'd never seen a banana before? Always take a banana to a party, Rose, bananas are good. - The Doctor, The Girl in the Fireplace

Sadly some of the pictures don't show the bracelet's true colors.  It is much more blue in reality.  I'll try to get an extra pic out in natural light this afternoon!  Enjoy.  Cheesy  
240  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / One Tiny Doctor Who Thing - Round 2 (Signups CLOSED, Sendouts 5/7) on: March 29, 2011 08:47:09 AM

Swap name: One Tiny Doctor Who Thing Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: jennieingram
Sign-up date range: 3/29/11 - 4/9/11
Date to send item by: 5/7/11
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

Details of swap:
Each participant will be required to send out 1 TINY Doctor Who themed item, measuring no more than 4x4.  Your item should be physically small BUT, it should also be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so as to represent the best of what you can craft.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, stencil, or take any other steps to make it a really special piece.)

* You will receive only one partner.
* You may only send that partner ONE Tiny Doctor Who craft
* All items must be 4"x4" or smaller in their natural state.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!  

What does in their natural state mean?  That means that if the object was resting on a table, it would be 4x4.  A book for example that had a cover 4 square, would count as a OTT, even though when you open the book it could be 4x8, because in its natural state, a book lays closed.

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).
