My daughter went to College in Bar Harbor Maine. I would often stroll the rocky beaches on campus and came across this lovely one time. Pretty cool. I was afraid to pick it  up with my bare hand, as i did not know if it bit. Used a piece of driftwood to gently check it out.

I may have solved your mystery creepy thingy Blup...

13  My Little Monstrosity: Rainbow Dash in CHALLENGE 112 ENTRIES by suereal on: March 07, 2016 10:05:26 PM
Where do I begin....It all started when our amazing Ludi sent me a bag of body parts....tiny, tiny body parts.  They were slightly warped, little itty bitty race car driver parts.  I knew I would eventually glue them all together some how..but how?  One day, while thinking about them being race car driver body parts, I said to my self, "suereal...who is the fastest person you know?"  and then I reminded myself that I don't craft humans in general, and suggested I think more pop cultureish.  And that's when another awesome craftster gave me an idea.  I've always been a bit jelly that the REAL Rainbow Dash visits Patraw regularly, offering him...encouragement and..lets just say..helps to keep him on the right crafty path.  Well, the most obvious thing about Ms. Dash is she is the fastest pony anywhere, so it suddenly seemed obvious to me that tiny race car driver parts would be perfect to create my own little RD in my laboratory!  Now, my transmogrifier had not been used much recently...and it is entirely possible that some...thing...in my laboratory might have crawled in at some point, becasue my Rainbow Dash did not come out as....Pegasus-y as Patraw's friend.  But I do love all my monsters equally, so she is all ready fitting right in.  So, please may I introduce My Little Monstrosity RAINBOW DASH!!!

She is just a tad under three inches at her highest arm and three.5 inches from end of her yellow hair strand to the tip of her tail.

Even her cutiemark came out a bit...skewed

hhmmm...I suppose it's her monstermark instead Grin

Here's a picture of the left over body parts Ludi sent me (I just love typing that Grin)

And here she is meeting a few of the locals.  She seems to be settling in fine around here Grin

This was definitely a challenge for me.  Those parts were super tiny for one thing!  I super glued my fingers together, to Ms. Dash, and once to the work surface.  I did remember I had a magnifying head set, and I even managed to find it.  I was very necessary when it came to the "detail" painting.  Boy, did this piece activate any OCD I might (or might not..) have.  I could easily see myself painting it forever.  I ended up liking the lumpiness.  I think it makes her more cephalopodesque.  

Thanks for looking Grin

It's so good to see her again Grin!  I tototaly fell in love while I was working on her.  She's based on cmarion3's "Your familiar (animal of your choice)" on her like list.  Trouble was, I feel kinship with so many animals LOL, so I didn't have any troubles coming up with lots of different options Grin.  The base animal is a tiger however, so I used stripy fabrics for much of it.  I also wanted to use Hobbs as inspiration, so I made the body long in his honor.  I tried to not think about the other parts when I was making a body bit.  And I think I used every glow type I have, spray paint, fabric puffy paint (3), glow fabric, regular glow paints (2 i think), glow embroidery thread, and glow FIMO.  I'm still having trouble takeing glow pics, but here's this attempt..

I used the firework setting on my camera which has a super long exposure time, so it was hard to get an unfuzzy pic Grin

and Thanks curiousfae Grin

My turn!  My turn!! Grin

Cmarion3's wee critter made it to my house (well...PObox first..) today, and it's just right for me Grin  She made me an  Aye Aye!

I tempted her to swap a few extras with an offer of Kinder Eggs Grin.  She sent me the cute tiny gnome house...or is it a fae house?  She also sent a little magical door, which is awesome Grin.  Our house was the last owners project, and there are a few little holes sprinkled around.  Now I just have to pick a hole one that I see all the time Grin

I love the little details of my new wee pet.  Here's a close up of his clever teeth.  I also love the double earnings.  Who knew  Aye Aye were so fancy Grin

Thanks so much Cmarion3 Grin.  I promise to take excellent care of him/her (not sure how to tell the sex of an  Aye Aye...)
And THANKS Smmarrt for the fun swap Grin

Howdy Howdy!  I received my angel package from geekgirl1000100 yesterday and finally have a bit of time to post the pics

Firstly, there was this nice pack of garden tools, some neat glass beads, a wee apple for Zoey, a cool coin, some tiny glass bottles, and a cute little plastic container.

Then she sent this cute octopus, which is just the right size for the laboratory Grin.

For my retro theme, she made this adorable tiny TV dinner, also just right for the laboratory.  After all, mad scientists have to eat too Grin.

She had mentioned she liked to make tiny food out of poly clay.  I said I could use some odd foods, so she thought up this adorable tentacle pie.  So funny Grin

And then she made me something I have been needing for a very long time....a BRAIN!!  LOL Grin

Thanks so much for all the charming tiny things GG#.  I appreciate you angeling for me too.

And thanks B1K for hosting this super fun swap Grin

19  Re: Fake Swap Craftalong for Swap Junkies!!! 2015 in Craftalongs by suereal on: August 13, 2015 11:31:03 AM
I (finally...) received my last 5 tiny things for the Set the Scene Swap (actually my Angel package is on it's way, so there are still more cute little things coming in real life Grin)!  So let's take a look shall we?

A little lounge chair for Wee me!  It was made from mini pre colored craft sticks.

Then this cute fairy garden inspired table.  (kbrison sent me this neat geode slab in the real Set the Scene swap.  I added the little three prong stick for the legs.  I used epoxy putty to stick it on, and then glazed it with resin.)

I think this is my FAVo thing yet.  A tiny ray gun!

She said she almost didn't send this little guy.  But I'm glad she did.  It's a ittybitty Vampire Squid! (I tried to use Ultra Thick as the water...it didn't dry all the way and it made bubbles.  I finished it with resin.  It took me forever to make the little V.Squid out of FIMO...three tries...or I would make it over again..)

And here is my new Yard Guard Fish.  I had to chain it up as it is a viscous wee fish.  It has bit me twice so far..

Here is wee me with all the loot, including the little cat ears she sent me (actually a very small plastic bat ring).

She also sent something I have already placed on the laboratory..

The Crystal Squid widows walk fencing.  The little squids are for sitting on drink glasses.  I love how they sparkle in the light Grin  I added the tiny glow in the dark bats, just for effect...

And here is the My Little Laboratory Project all finished and in it's spot.  I'm super happy with how it all turned out, and it's fun to make Wee Me slave away in the laboratory Grin

LOVE the wee monster one Grin.  They all looks so well made for such small things Grin

AIMR-- I am HELping!  *like a toddler helps when the grown up is one the phone...* Grin

So I received from my partner in the FAKE Set the Scene swap!  She sure took her time....but I love what she sent so I guess I'll forgiver her Grin  All the things are for my little laboratory project.  MLLP is going to be a place for me to keep and remember little bits of things...I own a surprising amount of sentimental little things...

All right, I'm going to start with my favo thing first Grin

This little cutie was made from my very first watch ring (see example of said item in the pic)  I have many fond memories of this ring...Including one of the Johns from They Might Be Giants commenting on it at a concert/signing..still makes me all giggly Grin

This is The Big Book O Stuff, where I can write down things about MLLP

I used computer paper, then stained it with coffee.  I used the coptic stitch to sew it, so it lies flat for easy of writing.

Then there are a few more specimen jars filled...

COSMOtic Particals, LUNAtic Fringe, and a Star JAR.

This is the wee me's new laboratory table.....easy clean surface Grin

A cute little tile table with an ugly secret...or maybe not too secret Grin

EEWWW!  What is that thing?!?...oh  yeah...It's my depression Grin  I figured an end table was the perfect place to keep such a thing Grin

And then I sent me..or she sent me...someone sent the other one this cute and sturdy book shelf for the specimen jars.  We included a few of the collection that will be displayed eventually.

So that's at least 5 things...and I may need to fake join again.  It's wonderful motivation and all of the me's are having so much fun goofing around with the MLLP Grin
