1  Re: Bookmark Swap 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ChameleonHound on: September 24, 2014 08:19:15 AM
I received bookmarks from both of my lovely partners after my long return trip from Vermont. Yay!

From jenleahlynn:

She chose to make the tree of Gondor, plus tucked in a few other things I like. (Especially those colors! Beauty!)

And the card it came with, that I'll also use as a bookmark. Wink

And this is from our lovely organizer. I've never gotten a bookmark like this one, Wizards_Pupil, but I love how the end tucks around the spine of a paperback. I managed to somehow not capture it in the pictures, but the little orange rectangle is a mini polymer clay book!

Thanks for my bookmarks! I had a hard time taking pictures because I had already put them to use. Grin

Wow I love all of the bookmarks so far! The watership down one is awesome, and the Jim Herriot/Nancy Drew mashup. And I'm excited for Clariel to come out!

Jenleahlynn, did you see the back of the bookmark I sent?

Well, my partner finally received her int'l package, but doesn't seem to be posting the shrine I sent. Here it is!

Inside Lid:



The bunny is felted, the blanket is knit, and the sheep are q-tips, matches and fluff. Everything else is paper, sticks and toothpicks, and a bit of bubble wrap. Smiley

I finally got a package from Canada! The post between me and my partner was SUPER slow, but it finally arrived yesterday!

My partner chose my gardening and bird themes.
Thanks .:Dollface:.! I hope yours arrives soon!

I did some de-stashing in a recent swap! After digging through my box of paint-able items, I found this tray that was begging to be decorated.

6  Dinosaur Tea Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ChameleonHound on: May 24, 2014 09:27:15 PM
Hi everyone!
This here's a tea tray I decorated for my partner in the "Use What You Have" Swap.

I used a combination of paint (the pink parts), and decoupaged tissue paper (gray) and book pages. The silhouette I drew on some fine art paper, cut out with an exacto knife, and mod-podged over the paint. And then it got heavily glittered, 'cause what's tea without dinosaurs and glitter?

Thanks for looking!

I made a hoop for a swap this month! It was more for my partner's guilty pleasures than my own, but I had fun making it anyway.

8  Lunar Mission Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by ChameleonHound on: May 23, 2014 05:09:06 PM
Hi all! I made this hoop recently for my partner in the "Use What You Have" Swap.
She mentioned liking space, american and glitter themes so I combined them!

I appliqued the moon surface on with interfacing and finished with a chain stitch, and the earth was just a patch I had around. The stars are fabric paint (glitter of course). I made the flag pole with a heavy braid chain stitch, for which I used this tutorial.

Here's some detail. The flag was done in a back-stitch with shiny thread, and I used satin stitch to fill the blue, and fabric paint for the stripes.

I actually like the way this came out; I didn't think I was going to. The stars were a little sloppy, but I had a hard time getting my brain around spacing 50 stars in a tiny box.  Huh

Anyway, thanks for looking!

Check out this cool collage card I got from CDEeeek for my found objects theme!

I love that I keep discovering things I hadn't noticed before! One of the little signs was detached, and I'm not sure where it goes so I haven't attached it yet.
I especially like "don't dawdle".  Smiley
