Very adorable zombies!  I love the style.

Unfortunately, this will out me - OR WILL IT?  Did I just receive and the list hasn't been updated?  Or if I'm the one in purple, does that mean I've sent?

(um, anyone who's swapped with me will probably know the answer to that - me, get anything done before the deadline?  I think my record has been a day early...)

I received!  From (super secret person)!





It's a cute little clay cupcake that says "Stay Calm/Eat Cupcakes" and an adorable card to match.  Not that I've ever NEEDED an excuse to eat cupcakes, but now when my mouth is crammed full of delicious cupcakiness I can just point to the little cupcake and people will know the alternative is me ripping their heads off in a fit of pique.  Wink

Thank you (super secret person)!  It is so perfect and so me!

It's a big step for me to post these here, I'm not an artist and I know I have a LOT to work on, so constructive criticism is appreciated!  Anyway, these are from the Lifebook assignments, both from 2012 and 2013.  

Little Witch



ButterPi



Whimsy



Light and Dark



Angel



Hope Fairy



Mermaid



Paint Over Random Scribblings



Shaman/Animal Spirit assignment.  I cannot take credit for the picture, I found it randomly on the internet (it probably has some horrible association I don't know about!) and tried to "fanart" it, if you will.  The only thing I'm really proud about with this is that it is entirely watercolor, even the whiskers.



Blob art, basically a random background that you pull something out of.



Something about your past, basically another portrait



House/Childhood



Game board and cards.



Goals and mode of transport.  I did not add the goals or grounding words, as I said, I rarely follow directions.  But I am almost happy with this one!



Unstumpification.  Okay, this assignment made me mad.  Basically, the woman teaching the lesson said that if you trace a figure, it will look "stumpy" and wrong, and what you need to do is elongate everything to make it look "right" and still "real" and "in proportion".  That's what fashion drawings do.  And that's not at all a problem with body image or anything.  Making someone 3 feet taller and still just as narrow isn't making them "skinnier", she claims, just "not stumpy".  Whatever.



Profile Portrait.  So need to work on this.



Courage/Facing Fear



Coffee Filter Tree leaves



Painting over an image transfer.  This was my second go at this, I dislike it as much as my first attempt.  Okay, not quite as much, but I've decided I just don't like the technique.  Maybe I'm not getting enough of the rock off, but it leaves a fuzzy, hard to paint surface and the transfers always seem too dark.



This was supposed to be a riot of colors, very smeary and bright, but I couldn't let go.  She's also horribly asymmetrical.



3/4 Portrait.  One of the first I did, and one of my least favorites - so much I could do better!



Whimsy animals - I had high hopes for this one, but in the end I think it looks like a third grader drew it.  And that's probably an insult to a lot of third graders...



9. Mini Art!  Some LB pages in miniature, some just random drawings

Okay, I feel bad for this picture dump, but if I don't catch up now I'll just keep falling more and more behind and then it's harder and harder to catch up!  So...  away we go...

11. Art for the 4x6 Art Swap!



12. One Tiny Thing Secret Partner Swap - yet another wrap bracelet!  I just can't stop making these things, and when I saw it on her Pinterest...



13. Tiara for friend's birthday (only 6 or so more of these to make...)



14. Finished the second assignment from Lifebook 2012 - it was supposed to represent our light and dark sides, but... I rarely follow directions.  It started off on the right track, but...  Anyway, there are a few things I like, but so much I'd change and so much I need to work on.



15. Another LB 2012 assignment, you basically paint a bunch of random things then only let it peak out.



16. LB 2012 Shaman/Animal Spirit assignment.  I cannot take credit for the picture, I found it randomly on the internet (it probably has some horrible association I don't know about!) and tried to "fanart" it, if you will.  The only thing I'm really proud about with this is that it is entirely watercolor, even the whiskers.



17. LB 2013 - Game board and cards.



18. LB 2013 - Goals and mode of transport.  I did not add the goals or grounding words, as I said, I rarely follow directions.  But I am almost happy with this one!



19. LB 2013 - Unstumpification.  Okay, this assignment made me mad.  Basically, the woman teaching the lesson said that if you trace a figure, it will look "stumpy" and wrong, and what you need to do is elongate everything to make it look "right" and still "real" and "in proportion".  That's what fashion drawings do.  And that's not at all a problem with body image or anything.  Making someone 3 feet taller and still just as narrow isn't making them "skinnier", she claims, just "not stumpy".  Whatever.



20. LB 2013 - This lesson had something to do with courage and facing fear, but mostly it was an excuse to play with masking fluid and spray inks.  I disliked it a lot at first, but it grew on me.  I'm not saying I love it, but it won't go in the "hideous" section of my book.



21. LB 2012 - Painting over an image transfer.  This was my second go at this, I dislike it as much as my first attempt.  Okay, not quite as much, but I've decided I just don't like the technique.  Maybe I'm not getting enough of the paper off, but it leaves a fuzzy, hard to paint surface and the transfers always seem too dark.



22. Mini Art!  Some LB pages in miniature, some just random drawings



23. Duck Cross Stitch



24-27 Tiny Monsters!  Originally for the One Tiny Monster Swap (#2 has been received!), I couldn't stop making them...



28. Bracelet.  Again.



Phew!  That's all I've been up to, I'll make sure never to dump that much on you again!

Man, step away from the thread for a month and I'm 50 pages behind!  Everyone had such great projects (yup, I actually looked through all 50 pages!). 

I need to post the stuff I've made, as soon as I remember what it was...

The most interesting thing I did was cook 7 new Greek recipes for a friend's birthday party.  That was exhausting!  But everyone said they loved the food, so it was worth it.

I still prefer the way I make stuffed cabbage, but the bread was good and the ouzo sorbet was amazing!

Yay, partners!

My LV is heading less than 50 miles from a place I used to live. One of my favorite places I lived growing up! I'm jealous he's going and not me... I wonder if I can find my old address and bribe my partner to take a picture of Alfred in front of my old house... Cheesy

I should be able to get him on his way by the end of the week, the snow should start melting and the roads get better - driving to work this morning was very very slippery in spots. I have to get a better car for this weather...

PARTNERS HAVE BEEN POSTED AND SENT!

If you have not received a PM, something has gone horribly wrong, please let me know.
If there's a serious problem with shipping preferences or allergies, please let me know.

If you're staring at your partner's movie choices going "oh... I don't even... where to start?!" that is normal.  Cheesy  Just grab some popcorn and sit back and start watching!  Inspiration will strike, and if it doesn't... I think I can speak for most of us when I say there are probably a few alternates we'd be willing to throw your way.

And you can always search for crafts for inspiration, things like Monty Python and Star Wars and Harry Potter and Muppets have a LOT of crafts.  You CAN craft all of your crafts from one movie, or do all three from three different movies, it's up to you.

Have fun and happy movie watching!

Remember to check in, an easy way is to give us updates on what you've watched!

The BLANKING BLANK was finally BLANK enough for me to BLANK it Grin

SUEREAL!  LANGUAGE!  ;p
620  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Three Tiny Movie Things, Round 4 - CLOSES AT 9PM CDT - (SU 3/10-3/24, SO 5/10) on: March 24, 2013 04:53:26 PM
I enjoy both finding movies that I haven't seen before and getting the chance to re-watch others.  In fact, I haven't seen the original Star Wars trilogy in over a decade probably!  Maybe I should add them to my movie list even if they aren't on my partner's list! 
Now I'm a little worried that some of the movies on my lists aren't very 'craftable'.  Oh well.  Good thing I was unable to confine myself to 5!   Grin

Some are easier than others, but I've never seen one movie that was COMPLETELY uncraftable!  You may have to think outside of the box a bit, but it can be done.  And I happen to know a few movies on your list are very craftable, so you're good!  Cheesy

I do augment my "favorites" list based a bit on what I'd like crafts from.  Like, MegaPirahna was not an all-time favorite, but it was fun and I thought it'd be craftable.  It does lack the depth and meaning of, say, Gone with the Wind or Casablanca, though it makes up for it with a giant fish eating a helicopter

Two more hours!  I don't know if anyone else will join (last time there was a last-minute entry!) but I have to keep it open even though I know everyone's eager to get their lists...  Cheesy
