1  Re: IYP (Invite Your Partner) round 26? in New Swap Theme Ideas by gotgrey on: July 08, 2014 02:00:19 PM
I can paint or draw any breed of dog. 
Here is a pet portrait painting I did as a private swap here on Craftster:

Here is an oil pastel portrait I made of my late greyhound boy, George before he died:

He almost always smiled like that, and his ears would go up like that when he smiled real big.

Oh Candice, then you would LOVE the pelican pattern that I have!  Here is a pic of a pelican I made from the pattern.

I received from PJR107 today.  And, I'm sad to say, as she had feared, it arrived in puzzle pieces.  UPS broke the ear off of the adorable owl that was made by a student.  And my pottery story of Little Red Riding Hood was also broken, as is my heart.  I also received some adorable hand drawn dish towels w/a fox, a rabbit, and an owl.  An adorable little pottery bird which is my favorite!  3 tote bags, a bag w/leaves around the top, a hand painted pencil case complete w/everything I need to draw.  The little painted fairies dancing around the pencil case are just too much!  I also received 2 cards w/owl sliders on them.  I'm kind of anxious to make something w/them.  PJ, thank you so much!!!  I love it all!  I'm just sad that your lovely pottery and the student's lovely pottery were broken.  I don't doubt that UPS just tossed the box around and probably just dropped it on my front doorstep.  They didn't even knock or leave a note.  I just happened to hear a big truck outside, and went to look.  Maybe I can fix it PJ.  If you have better pics PJ, feel free to post.  I'm having some issues w/my computer today.  Sadly, I'm afraid it might just be on it's last leg w/no money to purchase another one.  Sad

4  An Enchanted, Yet Charming Fellow in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gotgrey on: June 29, 2014 06:59:20 AM
I made this elf doll for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures Swap.  I knew she liked stuff like this.  His arms and legs are jointed w/embroidery thread.  I needle felted yarn into his head for his hair.  I stitched his eyes.  I blanket stitched his hat and shirt together.  His hat and shirt are upholstery fabric.  I thought it looked kind of woodsy.  Like tree bark.  The funny thing about his shirt, I did it upside down, and didn't know it until I had finished it, and was putting the pattern back into the magazine it came from for safe keeping.  Oh well, it still worked out just fine.  His body is made from green leaf fabric, and his head gray leaf fabric.  I really like how he turned out.  I wish I had taken a better pic of him.  You can't see his face.  Enjoy.

5  Where Do Fairies Live? In Fairy Houses of Course! in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: June 29, 2014 06:52:34 AM
I made these for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures Swap.  On  her questionnaire, she said she liked fairy houses.  They are wooden bird houses that I painted and decorated.  I pulled apart those picks you get at Christmas time and glued the berries and pine branches onto the roofs.  I also glued branches from my backyard onto the roofs of 2 of them.  Then I cut out some images from various cards and calendars and decopauged them onto the sides of the houses.  Stuff like little rabbits, flowers, bushes, butterflies, etc.  I also used acorns that I found on my walks w/my dogs, gravel, faux moss, rocks, and small porcelain animals that I painted.  I sculpted 2 tiny fairies, and glued them to the outside of the house, near the entrance.  One fairy is a charm that I picked up at Goodwill.  I hope you enjoy them, as much I enjoyed making them.

6  Such a sweet little deer... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gotgrey on: June 28, 2014 07:23:27 PM
I made this stuffed/plush fawn for PJR107's son in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures Swap.  I know how much he loves stuffed animals, and how much he loves the stuffed animals I make.  When I swap w/his mom, he expects that there will be a stuffed animal, that I made, in the box.   Grin  This was the first time I tried out the pattern.  I'm super please w/how it turned out.  He/she is made from an old lady's coat that I got at a garage sale for free.  His/her eyes, nose, and spots are needle felted.  I've made a couple of more since.  They just need to be stuffed.  I absolutely LOVE how he/she turned out!  I had been in a long time search for a pattern like this, before I happened upon it.  Enjoy!

7  Unicorn Shadow Box in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: June 28, 2014 02:19:50 PM
I made this unicorn shadow box for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures swap.  I got the wooden box w/the rope handle for free.  It was the end of the garage sale, and the lady let me have it for free.  I got the images behind the unicorn from a magazine.  They are different photos of trees.  They are decoupaged onto the inside of the box.  I found the stick on the top in my backyard.  The unicorn was a porcelain Clydesdale figurine that I had.  His ear had broken off.  I stripped off his harnessing, and then layered him w/paper mache.  That's how I created his horn, and missing ear.  His mane, tail, and fetlocks are cotton balls that I pulled apart, and glued on.  That is dried moss around his feet.  I had a hard time letting this one go.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I had a lot of fun making it.  And, I enjoy recycling, instead of throwing away.

8  Altered Tins Dubbed as Owl Shrines in Completed Projects by gotgrey on: June 28, 2014 02:11:39 PM
So, I made these for PJR107 in the Enchanted Forest Woodland Creatures swap.  I used Altoid tins, branches from my back yard, and bark from my 3 River Birch trees.  The owls are images I cut out from an old children's encyclopedia that was going to be tossed in the trash.  Also acorns that I gathered from around my neighborhood, when I took my dogs on walks.  They have been dubbed, "owl shrines", so that's what I'm going with.  Enjoy!
