231  Re: Fake Swapping Craft-along (ongoing) in Craftalongs by suereal on: April 09, 2011 06:31:57 PM
OKies...just got back from my trip yesterday and am posting all the bits I have accumulated for craftsters today..so incoming for my Random Acts of Kindness Swap..

Wulf was victim number one.  He posted pics when he got the stuff
My second victim has received, but not posted (I sure hope I didn't make them feel uncomfortable about it all..that was certainly not my intent.)  I made minis of the swaps they said they couldn't join this month.  This is a pic of the wee package I sent them.
My third swap bomb..I mean Random Act of Kindness was harder to figure out.  But I finally learned my partner LOVEs blind box critters.  Yah know, those little plastic figures that you don't know what is in the box?  So I bought her one, and an Ugly doll mini that she has been wanting for a long time.  I almost painted it, but decided she should do it like she wants. I sent along a few bottles of acrylic paint that I think she will like(OKies..so...the 3rd victim is me.  I won't have time to paint the fig till middle of May probably, but I will post picks of the finished fig when I get it done..and I DID get the fig I wanted at least Grin)

As I am "prone to random acts of weirdness..." (ROFL), I may not be sticking to just 3......But I have to get a few "real" swaps done in the next few weeks..but I'll Be Back, as the Govinater says Grin

WOOHOO!  I'm back from me trip that just kept going on and on...thankfully Grin  (my parents are cool), and now I'm posting things that I should have posted weeks ago...so here are the cards I got for March..in no particular order..

I got these 2 cards from MandyKaye for glow in the dark

I'm still trying to figure out how to get good glow in the dark photos...partly because I forget to take notes about what settings I am using LOL.  She said she had just bought some glow in the dark paint and wanted to use it.  She said she was disappointed...but it seems to have worked better then the paint I GITD paint I have heheh.  Love them both, but particularly fond of the lizard, as the glow pic looks kinda like a poodle-basset radioactive mixed breed...and I have a poodle and had a basset at one point Thanks so much Grin

Thanks a bunch everybody!  I hope to beable to make more claims soon (miss managed my swaps this round...)

This is from XtabsX for my Eyes want list...but it works for my deep sea critter want too

She apologized a few times (hehehe) for how ugly this little guys is..but one persons ugly is a nother's charming and I LOVE him!  I just am so fascinated by the clear under sea folks Grin  Thanks a ton!

This last bunch is from tristitia

This one is the claimed card.  It's called 5th position.  It's for my Things With Wings catagory..and it so COOL!  Love that it is not a normal thing with wings for one..and that it is a guy ballerina heheh

This is the extra (!)  She says she was just "playing around" with textures and backgrounds, and decided to send it along...Lucky ME!!  And my Hub...he LOVES this one most of all he has seen heheh.  She used white muslin, colored tissue paper, Angelina fibers, silk thrower's (not sure I have read that right tho, not sure what it is...)  waste, acrylic paint, stitching, fabric markers & sharpie, wool needle felted heart, beads, Duct tape (too cool!) and Ink!...I do believe that is the most materials I have gotten in an ATC..and I love it!!  Very uber cool T!

And I think this wee card is just WICKED!  I'll be putting it in my ATC book...even if it is not technically ATC

OOoooOO!  I love that felted gerbil! The Yeti is adorable too Grin

OKies so I got mine from prettyrustyrobot and she got the one I made. I'm going to post for both of us, as she is having trouble with camera and/or cell phone pics. SO her's is first

Isn't it cool? Love frilled lizards and the fabric is so fun. She also sent me the dolphin in a bikini (it's a magnet) and the cool live green band.  I try to do that, but it is good to be reminded once in a while hehe.
Thanks a bunch PRR!

now what I sent her...

A mom and baby manatee. She had a few in her wists, and when my husband reminded me that the mammary glands for manatee were in their armpits, I knew what I wanted to do. SO I found the pattern here on craftster (sorry I bookmarked it, but I'm not on my comp at the mo, so I'll post that when I get back), made the Mom and then cut the pattern down to make the baby. IT does all fit inside a 5 inch cube..I swear! Here is a pic of her feeding her pup.

PRR said she was "super happy" about it.  I sure had fun making it Grin

UPDATE:  I think I have figured out how my partner was able to...splice...all these poor animals together.  As I turned out the light in the room I was keeping this odd little circus, I noticed this...

It turns out these poor wee critters have all been exposed to terrible amounts of radioactive material!  Aparently, there tiny feet running over the stage, has also embued the stage with a visable radioactive glow.

The last picture I took as evidence before I call ...well...not sure who to report tiny radioactive side show freeks to...But they are set up here to show the most of there glow.

237  "FAKE" Weird Circus Tin Swap--NOT for the faint of heart..PHOTO HEAVY in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: March 13, 2011 07:49:22 PM
I am participating in the Fake Swapping Craft-along
and one of my "fake" swaps there is the Wicked Circus Altered Tin Swap because my dance card was full when it started.
I'm posting it here because it is a pic heavy project, and I don't want to take up all that space on their pages...

And low and behold!  I received from my partner today.  At least I think it was my partner.  There was a knock at my door and I opened it and this was out side..

As I was undoing the belt, I thought I could feel something..shifting..on it's own, inside the tin.  But, once I had my ticket, I figured I better keep going.  Besides, it says fun right on it.

So, apparently, I was entering suereal's Cosmorama of Incredulous Creations..And what a mess it seemed at first!

I got the tin emptied out and found a backdrop for a stage.

And figured out how to put the stage together.


First was a real live Mermaid!  Just like the mummified ones, except ALIVE!

Second, A Flying Pig

Third, the Sheep with the Parasitic Twin

Fourth, A Two Headed Flamingo

Fifth, Ogopogo's Spawn

Sixth, the amazing YoYo the Girl Faced Dog

Seventh, Cerberus's Puppy

Eighth, A Rare Jewled Toad

Ninth, A Giant Caterpillar

And tenth, a REAL Jack-A-Lope

After the show, they all came back out on the stage for a final bow.

I just wish I knew how my partner made all these...interesting, little things!

239  Re: One Tiny Stuffie Round 3 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by suereal on: March 11, 2011 04:47:39 PM
My stuffie from SpookyPooky finally broke free of the evil tyrant boarder guards and there equally unpredictable cohorts, the postal system.  And, after what he describes as a very exciting tour through the country, finally found his way to me.  SO, with no further ado, Mr. Weenpomo, Mr. Hal O. Weenpomo.

This is the note and wicked awesome sketch of Mr. Weenpomo that SpookyPooky sent along, explaining that the poor little guy has some self esteem issues.  I knew right away that he would fit in great around here, as I too sometimes feel less then secure with my own species.  He offered the ribbons to me in friendship, and he was so serious about it, I tried very hard to not laugh at him.  And then we heard a tiny yip...

You can sort of see in the picture, that there is a little note stuck behind his antler on the left..  It said to read 2nd so I did....

Mr. Weenpomo is a poodle owner too!  The sweet little poodlefly turned out to be named Luna.  They both insisted on meeting Cosmo right away.

They were a bit disappointed to see that Cosmo didn't have wings.  But I explained that he does, but his wings are very hard to see.  You would not believe what I had to do to my camera to get it to photo his wings.  Right about then, I could hear Zoey asking what was going on...
As you can see, Zoey fell instantly in love.  I think her enthusiasm shocked Mr. Weenpomo a bit, but Luna loved the attention.  She had some trouble understanding that they were not her pets, but she evetually decided it was ok just to be friends.
Next we went to see how my stuffie mini herd would feel about our 2 new house mates.

The did respond with a bit more restraint then Zoey, but it was clear they are delighted to have more in the ranks.  Infact, they started chanting Round 4! Round 4!  I explained to them it was all ready on, and that we get to look forward to a critter from prettyrustyrobot. After a bunch of cheering, and some chirping, it was clear they are a happy little gang.  And it should be clear that I am happy about all of this cause I just spent about an hour playing with them LOL.
Thanks so much SpookyPooky!  And Thanks FinRaziel for another excelent swap Grin
