1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes on: February 18, 2014 06:02:36 AM
This is a 5x7 mixed media collage.  The photos are just camera phone pics but I wanted to share and have no patience.  It's a canvas board base with papers, ink, watercolor, acrylics, paper tape, joint compound...maybe more?  I forget.

When I varnished it, the blue ink smeared all over, so it looks different now to what it did when I thought it was finished.  Ha.

The two goddesses are temporary tattoos.  I like how the transfer left them a little rough around the edges.  And middle.

The heart is my favorite.  Just a printed out heart with watercolors and ink, then added Glossy Accents to make it glisten and add dimension.  The join compound stencil is called pomegranate so I added a dot or two of Glossy Accents to random "seeds" to give them a bit of pop also.

The whole thing turned out a bit darker than I wanted but if I scan it in I may be able to lighten the prints, at least.  Smiley
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mixed Media Heart Collage on: February 09, 2014 05:06:27 PM

I haven't been around for a couple of months and this is the first thing I've finished since...er...Octobe r?  Anyway, this is a mixed media collage piece.  I got to try out some fun new-to-me techniques.  I used canvas board as a base and layed with paper, paints, inks, joint compound, watercolors, lace, and some little water drop looking embellishments.  The heart is wood that I papered and painted.  I made gears using the Tim Holtz gears dye for the Sizzix and used shrinky dink plastic.  I inked them then I covered them (badly) with Glossy Accents.  I also got to use clear embossing powder for the first time.  Whee!

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Celestia Curiosity Box (or Shrine) - Pic Obese on: November 20, 2013 09:42:18 AM
It's been a while!  I got married and with all of that madness I haven't had much time to make things.  I made this curiosity box from a dollar store wood jewelry box with a magnetic closure.

On the front is a miniature tarot card mounted (wheel of fortune) on cardstock and surrounded with little stars.

Side detail; the "knob" is a repurposed earring.

And what's this?

A little scene!

The houses are wood stained with ink.  The moon is clay, painted with acrylics.

The sides are covered with more tarot cards (the moon, the sun, the fool, the lovers)

And on the left side, a palmistry chart.  I made the frame from cardstock (what a pain it was to fit!) and then embellished the hell out of it.

So there you have it!

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Many several of my chipboard placard magnets (pic obese) on: August 18, 2013 09:06:21 PM
These have been so much fun to make.   Each one just has a magnetic strip on the back.  I'm going to make some pins, also.

For Halloween:

I think my favorite is Howl.

And for every day:

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Small Dino Shadow Box on: August 09, 2013 07:55:10 PM
I made this little shadow box from one of those paper mache boxes from Michael's.  Lots of trial and error, putting leaves all over everything.  I thought about adding some moss too, but it seems like I may have missed the boat.  Next time!

Scrapbooking papers, glitter glue, fake leaves, and a little plastic dino doing a dance move.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Teeny Tiny Mushroom Magnet on: August 05, 2013 02:38:34 PM
My partner, who is awesome, picked up a Martha Stewart silicon mold to try with my Mod Melts - works like a charm!  The mold had this adorable mushroom in it so I made it (of course) into a magnet.  The entire thing is just over an inch tall.

And here are all of the magnets I've made in the last few days.  All of them are hand cast (except for the molar), hand painted, and so cute.  Smiley

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Three more chipboard projects on: August 03, 2013 12:38:38 PM
I think I may be obsessed.  But they're so fun! 

Halloween magnet; I think it's two inches?  Chipboard, paint, cardstock, mod melt, washi tape.

Sweet Tooth Magnet & Pendant.  Chipboard, paint, mod melt frame, paper twine, washi, and molar charm from Tiny Things are Cute.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / 3D Chipboard Mixed Media pendant and magnets on: August 02, 2013 04:23:53 PM
I'm having fun making some little chipboard pieces and using cardstock, decorative papers, paint, washi tape, glitter (of course), and mod melts to make...stuff.  I made this pendant and some magnets.  I almost wrecked the pendant this morning when I punched the hole for the jump ring.  Lesson learned: chipboard is not metal.  Noted.

And these are magnets; not the best lighting but you get the idea.  I used magnet strips on the back with some glitter glue for fanciness.

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mixed Media Panel Collage with a bee and a key (and a house) on: July 25, 2013 08:09:27 AM
Sometimes I have no idea where I'm going with something until it's finished.  This one has elements of "home" in it, or finding your way there, or maybe finding your way out.

I love this bee.  It's a Mod Melts bee! Painted and inked.  Base is inked chipboard.

Closeup of the keyhole and house.

My favorite part of the substrate.

Thanks for looking!
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / I threw my pie for you - Orange is the New Black Chipboard on: July 20, 2013 03:11:41 PM
Have you guys been watching Netflix's Orange is the New Black?  My partner and I have been binge watching the show since Wednesday. 

I adore Susanna (AKA Crazy Eyes) and loved her line, "I threw my pie for you" after a cafeteria altercation.  What better way to show your sincere love than to use delicious pie as a projectile.

So I whipped up this little chipboard 'n paper project in her honor.

Color is more accurate in this one.
