1  Scifi Celebration in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by lyddieonwed on: July 30, 2010 11:09:57 AM
So, quite some time ago I saw a wonderful Dr. Who wall painting w/ different characters from Dr. Who on it on this board. My google fu has failed me in finding it again (please feel free to provide the link if you know what I am talking about) and it inspired me to do my own SciFi gallery of favourite characters. There is a picture below:

Top: Yoda, G'Kar (Babylon 5), Londo Mollari (Babylon 5)
Center: Spock & Kirk, The Doctor (Dr.Who), Lorne (Angel)
Botton: Dominar Rygel XVI (Farscape), Dream (Sandman Comic), & Jayne Cobb in his very fine hat.

I painted them w/ acrylic free hand. I'm not completely satisfied with them- but then who is ever completely satisfied w/ their work? My next project is going to be a wall of my favourite scifi women Smiley

2  BEWARE THE DOG :) in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by lyddieonwed on: February 06, 2010 11:57:08 AM
So I made this awhile ago for the front porch but now that I have a functioning camera and I'm snowed in I thought I would share.

I always loved the cave canem mural from Pompeii. Since we have a puppy dog named Sirius Black who is a Labrador/shepherd mix who tends to be a little too friendly (he likes to jump) I thought I'd make one for the house.

 I bought a wood base and a tub of small tiles. I stained the wood base and then I glued the tiles into place with craft glue.  The tiles I used were not fired so I could break them pretty easily with a pair of heavy duty scissors. When I finished gluing them down I filled it in with grout and then sealed the whole thing to make it outdoor safe.
Here is a detail shot of the cave tiling.

And here is a picture of the ferocious Sirius puppy with his "guarding his mommy" face on :-)

3  Our engagement in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by lyddieonwed on: January 31, 2010 04:01:45 PM
I haven't had a camera for over a year. So now I am catching up on posting my crafts.

Last January my fiance proposed to me with a mood ring he had purchased at our favorite nostalgic toy shop (filled with action figures from when we were kids and cool dollar store junk). I love mood rings and was absolutely thrilled. However, the mood ring he purchased did not tell him what each color meant. I drew him a key on a piece of scrap paper and he loved it so much that he asked for me to frame it for me. So I made him this shadow box. The original ring he purchased was too big so that ring also went in the shadow box after we went and found a smaller one :-)

I put a piece of scrapbooking paper in the background and then, using sticker letters and tags I had in my craft box I embellished it a bit. The papers are pinned in place with mother of pearl straight pins.

Here is a close up of the original sketch (sorry for its fuzziness)

The top says "treasure: 1. accumulated wealth. 2. something of great worth. 3. irreplaceable: priceless forever"

The bottom says "love: a strong deep affection and devotion for another, unconditional and unexplained"

I wanted to color in the heart- but he said that he wanted it exactly as it was-so that is the way it stayed.  Smiley

4  Hobbit gingerbread house in CHALLENGE 46 ENTRIES by lyddieonwed on: January 01, 2010 12:28:50 PM

This is my first entry on craftster- I've been so inspired by everyone on this board. I always make a gingerbread house for Christmas-but this is my first Christmas with my fiance so I wanted to do something special. Since we are both uber book geeks I decided on a Hobbit house. I spread the gingerbread onto a metal bowl which was raised up on a metal rack to make it look like a hobbit hill. Then I cut off part of the front and put in the flat front with the door. Here are the pics (excuse their blurriness as I had to use my phone camera)- have a happy new year  Smiley

I didn't want it be too simple- thus the jelly beans. ~It isn't terribly clear in the pictures, but there is a tree on the right side of the house made of licorice, watermelon bubblegum and spearmint drops- because this is where the gingerbread cracked while baking Smiley
Thanks for looking
