I may have  missed it - do we have a Gallery yet?

I'm dying to learn Victorian hair art or bug taxidermy. Anyone else into old creepy crafting techniques?

"Bug Taxidermy"? That sounds exactly like something I'd like!

Since we're sharing Pinterest collections, here's mine.

The patchwork pieces would make terrific cards. I bought a card at the Textile Museum of Canada (Joyful Clover got it in the recent Boro swap) a few years ago that was a piece of stitchery framed within a window of card. This would work perfectly for what you're doing. (Maybe you could sell them at the Textile Museum...)

And fool yourself thinking you could deal with things by putting them in an exhibit - when the exhibit comes down, they're yours again!

I have to admit, I have gone stencil crazy - I have quite a collection now. 

How do you store your stencils, Bonnie? I have a few now, and I find they don't work well in either a box or a folder. Any suggestions?

There have been several hand-cut stamp swaps here, but has there ever been a hand-cut stencil swap? I have to admit I've never thought of using Tyvek for stencils - it's too thin and floppy to use on a vertical surface, but it would be excellent on flat things because its thinness would keep the paint from building up on the edges. And Tyvek stencils would be indestructible. You can put it through your inkjet printer, too, so you can print the design to cut directly on the material.

I especially love the moon cakes - they're alarmingly like the real thing! These are all lovely - what will you do with them?

Love the ex-cookbook, Mandy! I can hardly wait to see what you do with the covers, though it would be just as great if it remained a boring-looking cookbook on the outside. I love the title page "Secrets of WITCHCRAFT"

Your painted pages seem nice and flat. Did you press them as they were drying?

I'm also a fan of the Canson Mix Media paper. It's very good quality for the price and readily available. You can wet it, work it and abuse it, and it doesn't disintegrate like so many others. Yes, a page will curl if you wet it, but it will flatten very well again if you put a weight on it as it dries. It's not easy to find another paper for art journals that is thick enough to work (no bleed-through, takes collage and paint, etc.) but is thin enough to make a practical journal out of. Most watercolour paper, for example, is too thick to fold properly and makes a very bulky book. I've just made myself a new journal for this year from Mix Media paper, and with 184 pages it's only a little over an inch thick.

I tried this last year (or was it the year before) but didn't get too far. This year will be different Wink. I do quite a lot of crafting, but I don't post much except for swap things, which usually aren't seen by anyone outside of the swap group.

So this year's 50 Projects resolution is to post more in the topic groups. Really.

I started gathering stuff for another Junk Journal, but I realized if I didn't wait until I got my Paper De-Stash Swap package from SonjaBoo, I'd just have to tear it apart again to add more stuff. So that might be one of my first major projects, which will probably also make an appearance in the Papercraft and Mixed Media Craftalong.

I got nervous about how full my envelop was and put it into another, slightly heavier envelope, and then taped the edges of that one. If it burst on the conveyor belt, the result would be spectacular! Shocked
