Hey guys! Thanks for the complements!  Grin
To answer some of your questions, Yes that is the white stripes on my skirt.  I did not use dye, I basicallly poured bleach on my jeans, washed them, and then brushed on watered down red acryllic paint (liquitex Basics).  After they dried, I drew on them with colored sharpie markers, and stenciled on them.  After that, I made them into the skirt you see now by cutting open the inseams, sewing them together, and putting fabric inserts in.  The rest of the decoration is reverse applique, embroidery and buttons.  To do the reverse applique as seen on my skirt,  I simply cut windows in the denim and found scraps to sew behind them.  I am sure there are some embroidery how- tos on this site somewhere, good luck- I look foreward to seeing some of your designs!
Again thanks for the kind words!  Kiss Ryn P.S.- here is the skully close up- its from M.C. Escher

6  CRAZY Chance Painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KatDr5 on: May 17, 2005 03:28:55 PM
I made this painting by taking twelve rocks, rolling a die to see what rock I would use, dividing my paper into six, rolling a die to see where the rock would go, and then rolling a die to see how I would applly the paint and what color I would use.  The idea is to take the artists choiice out of  a work of art as much as possible.  I dont know how clear that is, but it is based on John Cage's rock drawings. SOOOO, here it is Undecided

7  Surrealist Angel Assemblage in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KatDr5 on: May 17, 2005 03:06:59 PM
Hey- here is another thing I had to make for school made out of things I found dumpster diving around the art school - I began by sewing fake wooly fabric to paper amd then after an all nighter of sewing this damn thing together, added the angel that was given to me by my grandmother for my first communion. Anyway, its kinda kitschy, but here it is- what the hey... Roll Eyes

9  Urban Red Riding Hood in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by KatDr5 on: May 16, 2005 11:59:47 PM
This is one of the projects I have done for freshman foundations this year, I constructed it out of various garments I found in free boxes around campus.  The assignment was to create a shirt that represents some aspect of the creator.  I decided to combine scrap quilting with street art. Quilting and street art at first thought seem like polar opposites, but they both layer information whether it be the worn garments of grown children or the  scrawling of an anonymous artist weathering over years of being outdoors.  They both feel like remnance of life to me. anyway.  Undecided here are some pics, I hope you like them.... Huh Cheesy Undecided Lips sealed
