1  Candy/Sugar Skull pinup in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pookiemccool on: March 23, 2016 05:58:52 PM
A friend of mine commissioned me to paint her a candy skull girl. I hadn't painted or drawn anything like it before and had tons of fun! She is painted with acrylics on a 16" x 20" canvas and took about 15 hours (including drawing the concept out on paper first). After she was done I jazzed her up with some paper flowers and butterflies.

2  Harry Potter Sorting Hat lamp in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: November 08, 2015 11:52:53 AM
My brother-in-law is getting married in January and his bride to be loves Harry Potter. I had so much fun making the Nightmare Before Christmas Mayor lamp that I knew immediately I wanted to make Harry Potter and the sorting hat! I used paper, cardboard and a ton of mod podge, paint and acrylic glaze to decorate the lamp shade.

I received my Miss Argentina (Beetlejuice) inspired poppet today from Tenitsu. Smiley

Her hair and cape are perfect, she even has slits on her wrists.

I've been in Chicago for a week so I wasn't able to keep up with the thread. I know Bobbysgirl received her package but she's been under the weather so I guess I'll post pics of what I sent.

She is obsessed with Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead so I knew right away what ami to make. I didn't use a pattern just a few pictures of the pop vinyl toy and a plush for reference.

I also couldn't bring myself to send him alone so I made her a glitter portrait and a bead sprite. I didn't snap a picture of the bead sprite though.

5  Metroid NES cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by pookiemccool on: July 28, 2014 07:27:41 PM
I seriously can't believe that I forgot to post this! This was my husband's big Christmas surprise last year, it took about a month and a half of working on it on weekends while he was at work.

All I did was use the original artwork image from the NES game:

I was a part of the most recent Once You Pop swap and I'm really proud of how my can turned out!! I constructed the head out of cardboard, covered it in painter's tape and painted it. I hope you find it as adorable as I do! Smiley

I received my package today and love everything!!

First the adorable can which I must find a use for. Smiley

A cute little furry monster.

Hairbows galore (including a few from my wishlist)  because I can never have too many!!

Knitting accessories I've been wanting. Yarn bras, knitting needle coils which she made from hair ties and a knitting needle holder.

The inside of the needle holder and some handspun yarn in my favorite colors!

8  Alice in Wonderland Tea Party mixed media in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by pookiemccool on: June 22, 2014 04:54:34 PM
I combined my love of working with book pages and my desire to make a piece involving multiple canvases. I had an Alice in Wonderland book that I used pages from for a swap years ago so I seemed natural to do an Alice in Wonderland piece.

I've had this sockoctopus pinned for a while because I thought it was kind of cute:

I have some socks laying around that are missing their mates and decided to give it a go. It was super easy to make! I cut the end of the sock off since it was a little worn. I attached safety eyes and sewed the end shut. Then I cut the rest into equal width strips, stuffed and tied the tentacles together to close it. I am considering it a fail though because I don't like it at all. I think mine turned out fine, I just realize that it is difficult to tell that it is actually an octopus and he doesn't sit very well. But it only wasted about 10 minutes and now I can delete the pin! If you decide to try it for yourself I would recommend a thicker sock.

10  Nightmare Before Christmas Mayor lamp in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pookiemccool on: January 26, 2014 09:53:09 AM
I found a cute little round lamp at a thrift store a few years ago. With the help of my husband we finally came up with a good idea to put it to use.  Grin

The lamp shade is painted one both sides so you can change his face. The hat is built out of cardboard and covered in fabric. I left it hollow so heat can escape from the top.
