Thanks so much everyone!!  Grin

this is a really cool idea - I love pieces that have different textures - did you sew the beads on individually or did you sew on strings of them?

Thank you! In the big section I did them individually and then in the areas that look like smooth lines / curves I did them three at a time!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beaded Anatomical Heart Embroidery on: April 04, 2012 11:19:06 AM
The lovely sheepBlue invited me to swap with her in the Invite Your Partner swap and I decided I wanted to do an anatomical heart for her, but I wanted to make it a little interesting. So I decided on beading! I used three reds and a blue. I started by sketching it out and doing an outline stitch around the edges, then I just started filling in. When I finished I decided it was missing something, but then the idea hit me to play off the pattern of the background fabric to make blood splatters!

(thanks sheepBlue for these awesome photos!)

And a couple more shots:

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Love the decorated altoid tin and matchbox, totally coveting that Tardis fabric, and seriously in awe of that quilt (and loving the colors!) You guys are all so awesome!!!

I got my package from sheepBlue today, we decided to do a hoopla exchange. Cheesy
I picked it up on the way to class and ended up opening it in the park and seriously LOLed when I unwrapped it. Check out that lovely border and those flowers! So smitten!

And as extras she sent me this fab green beaded, braided bracelet. It's so perfect; I've been wanting to make something similar! And then this lovely mounted hippo (that I'm calling a hiphopopotomus) which is seriously precious.

Thanks so much sheep! I love it all!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Amelie 35mm film trailer canvas art on: March 30, 2012 01:17:32 PM
I didn't really know where to put this, so miscellaneous it is! Not the most creative thing in the world, but I'm sure there are other people like me who have film and wonder what the heck to do with it.

I bought the trailer for Amelie, my favorite film, and today when I came across this 12X48 stretched canvas I had an idea of what to do! It could probably be executed better, but the trailer was inexpensive and the newer films aren't very difficult to find so I had no worries about if things didn't quite turn out! (I probably wouldn't reccommend using your E6 film with precious memories.)

I used the head, foot, and opening green screen to go around the borders because with the wooden frame light wouldn't show through those areas anyway. And then I just started filling it in with strips.

Here it is leaning against a window (though I really don't think that's very safe for maintaining the film quality)

My initial thought was that I would use Christmas lights or something similar behind it, but the ones I have are a bit too yellow and spotty.

I'm going to look for some of those LED light strips; I think they'll do the job!

You can actually still see most everything even when it's just on the wall, so I'm pretty pleased! Would love any comments or critiques on how to make a better one. I was thinking I could do something with sandwiching the film between sheets of plexiglass and having a wooden frame - basically like making a lightbox.

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Been stitching for sheepBlue all day and night but I'm forcing myself to head off to bed now! Things are looking good though, I think (hope!) she'll be rather pleased! My schoolwork load looks pretty light for this week so I will have plenty of crafting hours before sendouts. Smiley

I received my hoop from amifriends and I love it so much! Sorry about posting pics so late! I was on vacation and couldn't check my mail for a week! She chose a quote from Amelie, my favorite movie, and it's perfect! Look at those adorable clouds!

Thank you so much!

Stitching has finally begun! Took me a while to nail down what I wanted to do for sheepblue, but I'm really excited about it. Also found a fun extra that I think she'll be pleased with. Smiley
