1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / How to copy an image onto canvas?-BEGINNER'S QUESTION on: June 15, 2016 05:14:58 AM
My son has a pineapple tattoo that I want to make into a piece of art for his apartment.  I purchased a white canvas.  I am assuming that I can use pencil to lightly draw the image onto the canvas.  Am I right in that assumption?

After I do that, I would like to use some sort of medium to color in/outline the image.  I would rather use something that has more control to it than a paintbrush.  What could I use?

Thanks in advance for your answers!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What surfaces do iron on patches work best? on: May 29, 2016 08:32:02 AM
I purchased a brand new canvas tote from a garage sale yesterday, and I received some lovely stamped fabric iron on patches from artsycandice in the 'Box of Sunshine' swap.

artsycandice explained how to adhere the iron ons to a surface, but I have a few more questions:

-Will the iron ons adhere well to the canvas? 

-If not, what kind of fabric would the iron ons work best on?

-Either way, should I wash the item I want to adhere the iron ons to first, or is it ok to use in its unwashed state?

If anyone has any suggestions, could you PLEASE PM me with them? Smiley  I really want to work on this project today and looking thru my PMs is easier when I'm on my phone.

Thank you in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheesy
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Another Decorative Initial! on: April 19, 2016 08:57:39 AM
A kind friend sent a package to my DD for her birthday that contained a letter 'M' to decorate, stickers, paintbrushes, and paint.

Here is what she made with those supplies:


It was a lot of fun!  She did 98% of it herself, and asked me for input.  It was great spending time with her on this!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pocket Letter Swap? on: April 04, 2016 05:32:34 AM
edelC did this with someone as a personal swap (check out that board to see what a pocket letter looks like), and I thought it would make an AMAZING IDEA for a swap!

A pocket letter is basically made up of using one of those clear plastic baseball card pages, with nine slots.  In those nine slots, you put in ATC's you've made.  On the other side, behind the ATC's, you put epherma (sp?), etc...

It seems like a unique idea for a swap, not too time or supply intensive, and low cost to mail.

I cannot organize, but I really wanted to put this idea out there, and I will definitely be in the swap if someone can organize!  Grin

7  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Project Night Night! on: January 16, 2016 08:30:24 AM
I was heavily involved in donating completed bags to shelters for Project Night Night.  Then I found Craftster  Wink and stopped being involved with Project Night Night for several years.  I've now found a way to happily combine both!  Grin

Here is a photo of a complete Project Night Night bag; which contains a book, crib sized blanket (that I crocheted) and a stuffed bear:

(sorry for the sideways photo)

Project Night Night bags are considered "complete" with those three items.  However, I like to add extras when possible:

I try to always add a nightlight b/c I figure what can be scarier than being expected to sleep in the dark in a new environment for a young child?  I always add bookmarks b/c you can find them for free anywhere.  The other extras pictured are from what I found while cleaning out my girls' playroom.  I'll add them to the bags as a surprise.

This is such a great cause, the people who run it are wonderful, and it gives me such fulfillment to take part in such a great cause!
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How about a January birthday swap? on: January 03, 2016 11:40:02 AM
I know that the birthday swaps have been done in the past, but since this is my birthday month, I was hoping someone would start this one up!  Grin Wink

I'm organizing another swap so I can't org this one.

Anyone?
