1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / how to make pictures & printouts look like paintings? on: February 03, 2006 10:49:35 PM
ok.  i have been searching high & low for a technique to make flat pictures (posters) and printouts look more like they've been handpainted.  i know i have seen this technique somewhere...  but where?
i seem to recall using either glue that's been watered way down & painting across the project, or using glue and egg whites... 
help!?!?

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / PANTA style headband - With TUTORIAL! on: January 07, 2006 10:20:02 PM
i love the panta pattern, but when i saw the link to the free people's snowball angora headband, i knew i had to try it...
bobbleless though.
it's a really easy knit, once you get the pattern down.  it only took me a few hours to knit up once i figured out what weight yarn, & size needles i needed to use.
i'm still not happy with the increases in the rib portion.  i'll probably tweak it a bit to try to get the increases to match the decreases much more closely.



it's done in crappy acrylic yarn i had lying around.  i definitely plan on knitting another one up in a better, blockable yarn, in a much better color as well.
hopefully the img is showing now.  it's also posted over here:  Dirt & Yarn Don't Mix
