1  A Krampus Sleigh in Winter Holidays by cackle on: January 06, 2016 06:26:06 PM
Sort of what I imagine Krampus riding along in with his team of night mares or yaks or maybe water buffalo, looking for really naughty children.
Made with a bunch of stuff from Alpha Stamps and my stash.
You can see he's got an especially naughty child stuffed in his big black bag along with some birch branches. The cool staff (or cane) I atcually found on my driveway after a very windy night.

Looks like Krampus' horns from last year are mounted on his sleigh. Those I made from polymer clay.
Looks like they're starting to rot a little.....

2  Baba Yaga House redux in Completed Projects by cackle on: November 09, 2015 02:03:46 PM
Still obsessed with little houses and with Baba Yaga's in particular..... here's the latest one, about ten inches tall, it's made from a piece of old 2x4, paper and polymer clay (the chicken legs)  with some findings and bits and pieces tossed in the mix.

The roof is wooden 1/12 scale doll house shingles I painted with a wash of quinacrodone gold and black acrylic paint.
I made an armature of wire for the legs and shaped polymer clay over them, baked them and painted them with acrylic paints.

I just opened my truly awesome package from suereal.

Introducing 'Awkvaard Phayz' the Little Odd Hare girl

And her little doll Froman (sitting in Awkvaard's very cool chair!)

Awkvaard is an Odd Child. Apparently, every so often in her species (suereal knows I love hares) an Odd Child is born...they live backwards, so when they are born they are
sickly and decrepit. As they get older they heal until they spontaneously explode with health.
Right now, Awkvaard is unable to walk so she has a special chair and her little pal Froman to keep her company.

This is so very imaginative and charmingly bizarre....I love her!
Thank you so much suereal, for creating something so unique just for me.  Kiss
And how cool is it that we both made each other dolls without knowing what the other was doing?!!

4  Odd, the little witch girl in Halloween Decor and Parties by cackle on: March 27, 2015 03:54:36 PM
I made this altered art doll for suereal for the "Be Awesome Redux" swap that racky and I organized.

I made templates for the wooden shapes and I learned how to use my husbands band saw, a drill press and a mega big sander.
I'll tell ya, power tools are pretty awesome.  Grin

Her face is from a drawing I did called 'Girl with a House'...I scanned it, put it in Illustrator and played with her face shape until
I got it to fit my wooden head I cut.
I made the tentacles from polymer clay and the little shopping bag is a jewelry box cut down to size.
(I took the bottom picture before I added the pumpkins and the micro beads)

It was a lot of fun and I'm in the process of making a few more!

5  The Disasterous Tea Party (lots of pics!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cackle on: March 22, 2015 10:54:10 AM
The Disasterous Tea Party or What Really Happened to Marie Antoinette.

I made this piece for Alpha Stamps. The theme was 'Marie Takes Tea' and I had a lot of fun coming up with a story
that was inspired by all the yummy little food miniatures, but I'm afraid poor Marie does not have
a happy end!  Cheesy

There was a fancy spread of delicious food...

And a glamorous crowd to partake of the delights....


Poor Marie!

6  Girl with a House in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cackle on: March 20, 2015 10:15:04 AM
Mucking around with colored pencils and markers. I took a fun face drawing workshop a few weekends ago and this is a sketch
from my 'Draw Happy' journal. It was a fun class!

7  New life for an old box in Winter Holidays by cackle on: December 15, 2014 08:23:31 AM
My bud racky found two small, identical ornament boxes some time ago and gave me one. It has been our intention to alter them and send them to each other. Well, you know how things go when you don't have a deadline!
We decided to partner up for the IYP and get these babies done. I'm so glad we did!
You can see the oh-so-adorable box she made for me here:

And here is the one that I made for her.

This was such a fun thing to play with! I love what racky did with the one she made for me and I had a blast making mine for her. I'm really inspired to get a couple more and play!
BTW, credit for the pics goes to racky....I was in such a hurry to mail, I forgot to get pictures. Thanks racky!

I had two partners for this IYP. My second partner was the amazing maxxev. She stalked me so well!
Behold the incredible Lepocampus!

She's absolutely gorgeous. About 4 1/2 inches tall counting her ear...those ears!
I think she's beautiful and original and so well suited to me. maxxev, you really scored a home run!

One more shot:

maxxev also sent me a beautiful wren ornament made from a polymer clay cane. Her cane work is impeccable...such amazing detail.

And a cherry on top....
A beautiful hand-embroidered Jack-o-lantern magnet.

Thank you maxxev! You're such an artist, it was a privilege being your partner.

I can't tell you all how much fun it was to decorate that little box! And racky is right....it's a good thing we had a deadline, we may never have got around to getting these guys done!  Grin

Here are a couple of pics of the great box she sent me. I love it so...it reminds me of the decorations I grew up with.
That little reindeer is vintage!

The wee package even has my name on it! Love it.

Thank you so very much racky!

I just opened the most delightful package from PerfectlyBohemian! I'm gobsmacked at the work and adorableness that PB put into every inch of this magnificent....

Needle Felted Hare!

He's HUGE...about 11 inches long. And GORGEOUS and I adore him. He told me he really likes Christmas trees and since I've just begun to decorate mine, he volunteered to help.
He hung the little bell ornament and paused to admire it...

He hopped on to my coffee table and asked for hot chocolate.

Please excuse me whilst I go make him some. He must be parched after his journey!
PB, Thank you so very much! I wasn't kidding when I said I adore him.
You have been an awesome partner...thank you!  Kiss
