I've been mulling over where I could get the base mask to work from. LOL
JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby both have them.  It's a pretty common product for craft stores to carry. ^_^

WOW!!! You are a sweet-sweet-sweetie and you did such an AWESOME job with this! I am so grateful and proud; this is the first time I have ever had the privilege of seeing someone make something using one of my tutorials!

Gave a "This Rocks" and added to one of my Faves. What a lovely, wintery mask.

Thank you so much for making this! Smiley  Cheesy
You just made my night!  Grin I'm so glad you like it!
I was almost worried you would be mad at me!  I definitely want to make more. I've always liked masks, but I never could get find material I liked to make one with.   When I saw you're tutorial I thought "This is perfect!" and well, made one pretty quickly.  Cheesy

WingsOfClay is Awesome

Now that I've got that out of the way, I would like to state I made this immediately after seeing WingsOfClay's amazing entry (and tutorial): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417535.0

Did I mention that person is awesome?

Well, since it's winter time and my friend and I just watched "Rise of the Guardians", I decided to make a Jack Frost inspired mask. I twisted the threads and got what I think is a really great organic looking texture.  This might be a good method for making small false trees.  I think it turned out well for my first attempt.  I look forward to making more!  

The twirls were fun.

My new Hero.

I must make one now!!!

----------Edit 12/9/12
I started making my own mask! It was much more difficult handling the thread than I thought it would be.  I am much more impressed with how lovely you make yours now.  This is really fun!  Thank you for doing this. I have many fun hours ahead of me making more and figuring out how to do it better each time.

It's so cool!  I really like it!  The detail is great and I love the eye.

 ...But...  Is anyone else bothered by the physics of this? A dragon with that big of an eye would not be able to fit into that egg.  Unless it's a TARDIS egg or Egg of Holding, it shouldn't be possible.  O.o  I can't stop thinking about that...

*looked at earlier posts*
So... it's okay if we uses something that's already hardwired to move or light up and incorporate that into our project?  (I don't really trust myself with electricity. Like if I use a light bulb, I can just rip apart a lamp, I don't have to dig into 6th grade science?)

YOU FOOL! Didn't you know? Anything that holds an image of an angel becomes an angel itself! We're all dooooommed!!!!!

(Can I have one? j/k ^_^ )

"the Chihuahua will be checking"
 Cheesy oh goodness.

My dog walks on my projects too... but his white hairs don't like coming off!  Cry (Still better than the girls in my weaving  class that had cats 'helping' them and constantly cutting their strings.)

Anyway--cute skirt! I might have to try this.

all so lovely!  I've always wanted to do paper crafts but thought it was an expensive hobby to get into
try asking stores for discontinued wallpaper samples. They might have some.

O.o  My sister just got a job as Sherman Williams and was offered about 15 books of really cool paper samples and now I don't know what to do with myself. (we share like good sisters)
 (But I've never done paper crafts before! *is looking for ideas*  Yey for craft stalking!!)
