1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Beginner's Crochet Projects (heavy images) on: June 17, 2010 10:45:57 PM
So, I am a beginner at crochet...I learned from my parent's friend who was kind enough to teach me for one weekend (2 days) all of the crocheting basics. With the given knowledge, I started researching for basic crochet projects at the library as well as going online & started experimenting on my own...& these are my finished projects as of today Smiley ENJOY!!!!








2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "THE KiSS" BY GUSTAV KLiMT. on: January 25, 2010 12:46:58 AM
This was made entirely from paper cut outs with a pair of scissors and a sharp box cutter. I put glitter on for effects...it took me about one week.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Angelic Jessica Alba on: January 25, 2010 12:41:27 AM

She's pretty, she's sweet, and now she's my angel!
(The word "Devil" was put because my teacher wanted opposites. If you were going to draw a devil, you would have to write angel and so on...)

I drew this using chalk pastels and my fingers for blending. It is 30'' x 45" big and it took me two days to complete  Tongue


4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / How I put plaster gauze to use on: January 25, 2010 12:34:39 AM
This was made for a 3-D college class project.

Basically, you go to your nearest dollar store and purchase a glass or plastic item, go home and make a SEPARATE front and back side of the item out of plaster gauze, let it sit, then connect the two sides with a thin strip of gauze so they can connect.

Let it dry completely, then paint accordingly to the real item.

Then you go back to the same dollar store and put the fraud item on the shelf. Whoever picks it up will wonder why it is there and etc. Leave the fraud item there and let whatever happens to it happens...this is a way of contributing art to society.

The main idea of this project is that people today are too into consumer goods. We buy what is convenient and we do not realize the artistic value behind the item, how they were made and how each item is special. So when the fraud item is put up, it will make people wonder about the art behind it...either that or they will just shrug and walk away, not understanding the idea behind it.

This took me about three weeks to make...so ENJOY!

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mommy, I want that cardboard chair! on: January 25, 2010 12:19:53 AM
So how about a chair for your house? Better yet, a cardboard chair??

I made this out of pure cardboard for a 3-D class project. It is a 3.5 feet tall concept chair, made only for looks not for your butt.

I used big cardboard that you can buy at your local home depot, a box cutter, hot glue gun, tons of patience, and as for the cardboard with the words on them, I went dumpster diving behind my local GAMESTOP.

I carefully sketched out the design that I want my chair to be, drew the sides of the chair on a big piece of paper, and then taped it on the cardboard and begin cutting eight of the chairs' sides, four stacked up on each side so it can be somewhat sturdy.

Then I measured and cut out about 40+ rectangular shapes to fit in with my chair...slits first of course.

And all that's left is to assembled the chair. You don't need glue to put the rectangles in the slits, it should just fit right in, but as for the thickness of the chair, it's best to put your hot glue gun to use.

Hope that helps. It took me about a month to finish this project. It's time consuming, but it will definitely wow people! Heck, why not take it to the next level and make your whole living room out of cardboard?

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hello Kitty 3-D Wire Frame on: January 24, 2010 11:54:48 PM
Hi all!

This is just to show off my Hello Kitty wire frame design for my 3-D class in college last semester. I made it from looking at a 3 inch model of my Hello Kitty keychain, and this wire frame was about 12 inches in height. Let me tell you, it was a pain in the butt to make! It took me approximately three to four weeks to make and a lot of finger blood were involved. Nonetheless, it came out better than I expected and everyone seems to like it, so I hope you guys and gals will too!

I made this out of bendable wires, 18Gs and 24Gs I believe...not too sure about the numbers anymore...

The flower and the bow are two separate pieces that I later connect to complete the piece! ENJOY!!!
