101  Mixed Media Sunflower Paintings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by PerfectlyBohemian on: November 13, 2012 06:07:26 PM
I decided to start Christmas crafting pretty quickly after returning from my honeymoon, and I have already knocked out two sets of two mixed media sunflower collages/paintings. I've never really done a mixed media piece, but I didn't really want to devote a lot of time to painting details, so I thought this was a fun option. The backgrounds of four canvases were covered with paper that I took from a 1947 photography magazine that was given to me a few years ago. The petals and the centers of the flowers were cut from book rescued from being trashed, and the stems and leaves are newspaper. I used acrylic paints, water color paints, pigment inks, sharpies, and an ink pen. Everything except the stenciled white shapes were free handed.

102  Re: IYP 21 Summer Soiree Gallery in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: September 15, 2012 02:47:49 PM
So I have finally received a package, and this one was from my fantastic angel Bugaboo1.

I noticed right away upon opening the box, that she cleverly filled the spaces with some lovely wool for my felting:

The first little packet was an embroidered square for me to use on my wedding quilt with our wedding date and initials:

Next up, a passport-sized wristlet for the honeymoon since I will be going to Europe. It has a handy zipper and pockets inside. The inside and outside fabrics are so pretty and vintage looking:

Then, my first hoopla ever! Straight from my pinterest Smiley This little guy is so awesome, and I am having trouble deciding where I want to hang it so that everyone gets to see it! The little sun is fluffy/plush with pins stuck into it.

I can't wait to use the curly, yellow wool for a pet lion! I always see neat things done with curly wool, but the one pack that I bought of it, I have been hesitant to waste. But that yellow wool will be perfect for a little crafting for myself:

She also made me this lovely quilted mug rug. I use a mug rug at work all the time, but it is falling apart and stained, so I can't wait to bring in this new one!

She also customized a little tape measure. It was supposed to go with the hoopla but didn't fit. I think it is super awesome anyways!

And finally, some amazing smelling lemongrass-eucalyptus soap. This stuff made the whole box smell so lovely. I can't wait to use it Smiley

Thanks so much to my angel and the organizers. I really did enjoy the swap, despite certain circumstances.

103  Mr. Moose - needle-felted animal in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 27, 2012 11:18:51 AM
This little moose was a birthday gift for one of my friends. She had a similar moose in different colors on her pinterest. Gray and blue were among her favorite colors when I asked. Originally I was going to make the moose blue with gray antlers, but I was almost done with his body when I changed my mind. So now he is gray with blue undertones and blue antlers Smiley

104  Felted robin pillow from recycled sweaters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:54:35 AM
I made this pillow for the IYP Swap R21 to match a fox pillow for the same partner that I had in crafted cushion cover swap R2 (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408189.msg4815445#msg4815445). It is a needle felted robin on a case made from recycled sweaters that were machine felted.

105  Gnome home pin cushion in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:47:59 AM
I made this little gnome home for the IYP Swap R21. It was based off of the one found here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/85401602/pretty-english-country-cottage-felt-pin (not by me)

Mine was made out of wool fabric (not felt) and fastened to a terra cotta dish that I painted green to add enough weight to keep it up straight. I also made the little pins with polymer clay painted in acrylics (inspired by many other people doing similar things).

106  Wool mushroom badge/brooch in Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 20, 2012 07:34:11 AM
I made this mushroom brooch for the IYP swap R21. I used woven wool fabric (not felt) for the materials and embroidered the greenery around it, and then I topped it off with a teeny acorn button Smiley

107  Needle felted flamingo and magenta song bird in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 04, 2012 09:26:49 AM
It's been a while since I have posted any of my birds. This flamingo was a recent special request from a friend of mine that moved to Alaska and needed something bright and cheerful to keep her company.

And this little magenta and yellow song bird I have had done for a while, but I somehow forgot to share him. I was trying to recreate the original green canary that my future mom in law now has with more colors. I think this one has been the closest, but he is a little bigger than the original.

108  Foxy denim flats in Shoes: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: August 04, 2012 09:05:55 AM
While on a pinterest binge the other day, I came across these amazing cross-stitched fox shoes:

Unfortunately, despite my instant love, they were quite out of my price range. My solution was to purchase a pair of flats from Target ($16.99) and take to them with my paints Smiley So now I have a casual pair of flat shoes with a pair of foxes.

I might go back and add some grass around the very bottom/toe area, but I wanted to focus the details on the top part that can actually be seen.

I just received my package from deathbeforedishes, and she spoiled me sooo much!

First, I opened my very heavy, and fairly large box to find this very awesome embroidered tote:

I can't wait for my fiance to get home to show it off because I am sure he will get a good kick out of it. Smiley dbd also asked about what color hair my fiance and I have to make it more personal Cheesy

Inside the bag were lots of bundles:

A huge bundle of chopsticks, a blingy stapler, butterfly sticky notes, honey soap (I love soap! And honey!), coffee!! (more love), hilarious hand tattoos, a bee cross-stitch kit, bird patches and decals with the first initials of my fiance and me.

An adorable beehive-shaped vase/pitcher filled with insect candles, chipboard buttons, a pretty barrette, and pieces for a wooden teddy

"Glitterbugs" wooden purse/case filled with more goodies Smiley

Inside the case was a blingy pen to go with the stapler, gift take, lots of nifty ribbons in lovely colors, chipboard flowers, "love" earrings, teeny Doctor Who sculptures (Gemini really wanted the fez), a peas in a pod sculpture <3, heart-shaped shell ornament, and a gold beaded house frame

Super awesome cross-stitched bookmark ("never judge a book by its movie"), a nifty honey-colored, vintage looking glass votive, trippy mushroom stickers, a candle in a tin, and plastic lime wedges

A beautiful cross-stitched panel with with a beehive and my wedding date (we are having mead and a honey theme), shea butter soap, a kitty tag, a cupcake picture holder/clip, and a bow tie barrette (made with those melty beads).

I was sooo blown away by the beehive panel because I recently decided that I wanted to have pieces of fabric instead of a guest book at the wedding, and I needed a centerpiece/focal block for making a quilt after the wedding. dbd just made my life sooo much easier because now I don't have to fret. This is exactly what I wanted!

And last but not least:

This can only mean one thing.......

River's TARDIS journal! But wait....

It is a false book with an altered puzzle inside!

This package was fantastic! deathbeforedishes, you have blown me away! Thanks for being a super awesome partner!!
