1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / 2013 Art Journal-along-CLOSED on: January 05, 2013 10:59:44 PM

Welcome to the 2013 Art Journal-along! One of my goals for the new year is to work on my art journal everyday...even if it is as little as 5 minutes....I'd love it if I have some company on this journey. Smiley

This is a craft-along to help inspire, encourage, and help you create your own art journal. Collage, draw, paint, altered art...all forms of art journals are welcome to join.

You don't have to wait for a page to be done in order to post. In progress photos are welcome too. What to share a technique that you liked? Post that too! The idea is to cheer each other on as much as possible, share ideas, keep each other motivated, and have fun.

To help keep things organized I'm going to post news, links, and a link to your finished journal on page 1. Update your journal thread as you complete pages so that at the end of the year we can see all the journals. Though feel free to make any in progress posts in the main thread too.

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Winter Holidays on: October 20, 2012 04:21:42 PM


Since the Stuff a Flat Rate Box for Halloween was so much fun...how about a winter holidays version?

This would be a non-denominational holiday swap so no matter what you celebrate you would be welcome to join!

The main challenge is seeing just how much stuff you can get in a $5.35 flat rate priority box. At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the items need to be your partner's winter holiday related. Past that...anything goes! I want this to be an easy, no stress sort of swap. Sound good?

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=43&productId=P_SMALL_FRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_B_Free

Sorry, but this would be a US only swap.

With enough interest I'll start the signups the beginning of Nov and send-outs would be mid Dec.

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Autumn Man Plaque on: September 20, 2012 09:52:08 PM

I'm not 100% sure this is the correct board for this....since I made him out of salt dough. Though I used the same techniques if I'd used clay so it was my best guess.  Undecided

Anyways...

...I made him for the Mabon swap and I am super happy with how he came out. Like I said, I used salt dough as my sculpting medium. After drying in the oven I used acrylic paint glazes and finished him with a clear varnish. I had a lot of fun with this and I want to do all four seasons now. Smiley

Oh, and here is a picture of what he looked like before painting:

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Halloween Rnd 2 on: September 04, 2012 11:54:00 AM

Last year this was my first swap that I ever organized. Since I've already had a couple people PM me to see if I was doing the swap again this year....the answer is YES!

So if any of these things apply to you:

- You're swapping budget is a bit tight and you don't want to spend too much in shipping.
- You're looking for an easy first swap to get your feet wet.
- Heck your just looking for a swap that lets in first time swappers!
- You love Halloween.
- You love surprises.
- You love the challenge of seeing how much stuff you can get away with sticking into those priority mail boxes.
- You are in college/a parent/working a lot/just fracking busy!
- Did I mention loving Halloween?

This swap would be for you!

The main challenge is seeing just how much stuff you can get in a $5.35 flat rate priority box. At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the items need to be Halloween related. Past that...anything goes! I want this to be an easy, no stress sort of swap. Sound good?

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=43&productId=P_SMALL_FRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_B_Free

With enough interest I'll make sign ups in about a week and give about a month to craft/stuff before send out.

Last years gallery:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391918.0

Oh and sorry...but it is USA participants only since part of the point of the swap is seeing how much you can send for basically 5 bucks.

So who's ready for round 2?
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Lawn of the Dead - altered altoid tin on: August 03, 2012 04:29:04 PM
Now that my partner has finally received I can make a post about my latest creation. This little guy:



I made him for the One Tiny Zombie swap. When I came across the little lawn gnome at Archie McPhee's I just knew that he needed to be zombified:



Front:



Back:



I have to say that working with the moss was a whole lot of fun. My fiance was sad to see him go. He even tried to convince me to keep him and pretend that he got "lost" in the mail....and he doesn't even like zombies or horror movies! Actually I kind of want to do a series of these now....he was that fun to make.

Though the most important part is that he arrived to his new home safely and my swap partner loves him Smiley
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Franken-wallet: duct tape wallet on: July 11, 2012 01:24:09 PM
I know this isn't anything new, but I've never gotten around to making a wallet (or anything else for that matter) out of duct tape. My wallet finally died so I figured it was a good time to give it a try:





Inside:



One the left is three card pockets. One the right is one large pocket and a change pouch.

This was a lot of fun to make, now my kiddo and fiancee want wallets too. Smiley
