Between pearljam94 and myself, we have had a hell of a time here. We each needed additional time for our goodies, so I'm posting a couple pics here of the package I sent to pearljam94. My package from her should be arriving here in a day or so.

This particular swap, I knew the kinds of things I wanted to make and just had to hope they tied in to my partner's likes somehow. I got lucky with being matched with pearljam. Smiley Please excuse the crappy cell phone pics...I thought I had my camera with me this morning. All I had was the charger and card reader, but no camera and card. But I had a few pics on my cell phone. Smiley


I knew from the get-go, I wanted to do some kind of portrait of Glenn. But I'm no painter...I get frustrated when I try to paint and it doesn't turn out exactly perfect. So, I cheated a little. I found a picture of Steven Yeun online that I really liked, as Glenn, took it into Photoshop, cloned out his features, and then smeared it. Once this image was big enough, I projected it onto the "canvas" with a mini projector, traced it on in pencil, and started painting.


This was actually a wall hanging print from Big Lots that I bought for $5. The grey background is actually primer paint. It looked like a tin ceiling tile print. The red splatter around him is really watered down red crafting paint that I flicked on. I am really freaking happy with how my portrait of Glenn turned out! It pained me a little to send it away.


I also bought a wall clock from Wal-Mart and redid the face of it, the same way I redid my crafting room clock a while back. I really wanted to upcycle both a print and a clock for this swap, but I couldn't find anything good in the thrift stores, so I had to buy new. Sad I didn't want to take chances on a $1.99 thrift store clock when I felt that a $4 Wally World clock would work.

I used Photoshop to design a new face. Rick was originally in this image, on horseback, riding into Atlanta, right below 5 o'clock but it looked busy and full in that corner so I cloned him out. I did try including a red bloody biohazard symbol in the center where the hands come through but that looked busy too. The frame of the clock was plain white but I added some red crafting paint bloody fingerprints to it, because everything is better with blood. Smiley

ROCKS!!!!

This is so great! I love funky lamps and these are just amazing! I'm going to have to PDF the page so I can keep this in case I decide to make one. (I haven't been bitten by the Pinterest bug yet.) I think this would be great in our second bedroom where space is kind of a commodity. Smiley
