11  Nightmare Before Christmas chunky house/shrine in Completed Projects by mandykaye on: October 18, 2013 11:11:46 PM
I made this chunky house or shrine for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. I used a pre-made birdhouse and demolished it hehe! Then I had my hubby help drill random holes in it for a mini string of Christmas lights. I made the pumpkins, the moon, and Zero out of ploy clay. The hill with Jack and Sally are cardboard.




Thanks for looking!

12  Spooky Fan Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by mandykaye on: October 18, 2013 11:02:26 PM
I made this painting titled "Nightmare of the Fandoms" for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap. I'm a bit out of practice with my painting but you can tell what it is lol! I added some cool spooky glow-in-the-dark stickers I had saved for something special. See if you can pick out the different fandoms....



Thanks for looking Wink

Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything Rachel! I also received yesterday but had to work extra long hours so I couldn't post last night Sad

So without further ado, here is my wonderful package from dharma_rebel!


Here are the beautifully done pages she made for me! I love the aged look and the calligraphy! She sent lots of info on different divination methods! I had no idea on some of them!!! And I love the dragon's blood ink and feather quill!


Here is a closer pic so you can see the details of the paper a bit better....sorry, I could only get a chance to take photos in the dark lol!


Here is a great palmistry page and a pendulum page!

Then she sent me some other wonderful goodies to go along with the pages!

This gorgeous acorn/tree of life pendulum! What is so extra special about the pendulum is that the wooden beads were gifted to her daughter (she was given the power of nature) and she wanted to include them! Then a very lucky bottle of wishes!


She sent these really neat Mayan candles with little dolls!

And that's not all! She made this beautiful wand from a (madrona tree?) and piece of quartz from her collection.


I love the little details on it! The wire and beads..especially the little pentagram bead!


Thanks so much Rachel for an awesome swap!!!!! LOVE it all!

16  Beach sprayed t-shirts! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by mandykaye on: June 16, 2013 01:24:47 AM
So I've been meaning to try the bleach sprayed shirts for awhile now and finally "sat" down to do it! I made my dad a couple of t-shirts for Father's Day. He likes eagles and wears a lot of skulls so I used those as my inspiration. I found some pictures online and copied them free-handed onto some card stock type paper. I placed the paper on the shirt and sprayed away lol! For the eagle shirt, I just flipped the stencil and moved it around. After each shirt had dried, I rinsed in cold water and let hang dry again before washing.








I just like how cheap and simple it is to turn a $5 t-shirt into a more expensive-looking custom piece!


This shirt I made for the IYP 23 Swap with edelC! She loves flamingos so I came up with this design! This was actually my first attempt at bleach spraying.

The latest bleach sprayed shirt for a swap!

Ok everyone! I received a wonderful package from Edel today!!!!! LOVE it all! Lots of pictures so bear with me Wink


Here is the package before I dug into it! She made this awesome tote bag that is really heavy duty with such great fabric!
She filled it with some wrapped goodies!



This the lining fabric! Love it!

Ok, here is the whole package at a glance!

Just look at all the awesomness!


This an amazing piece of wall art! She used different papers, paints and buttons! So cheery and pretty! I just love looking at it!

I requested some Book of Shadows pages, so she sent 4 really unique and inspiring pages with different designs on the front and backs!



Then she made some lovely jewelry!

I love the center piece! It looks to made of shell, it has a really pretty sheen to it that the camera didn't pick up!

Then this cute little slide pendant with a map background! A house on one side and a stamp on the other!


Then a piece of this hand dyed and stamped fabric!

A carved stamp!


And this amazing journal!!!! That is filled with so much thought and talent!

She has a separate thread for this so I added this link so you can see what she put into this!

20  Re: WWP 42 Ostara Egg-stravaganza Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mandykaye on: March 24, 2013 06:24:58 AM
This is what I sent to thesillyseemstress.
She wished for a goddess/spirit doll and a hoop. I'm not much of a seemstress myself so I did the best i could lol!

For my egg inspired item I made this bright feathery candle wreath...



I made this simple hoop inspired by the stuff I had in my stash...


The goddess doll was inspired by one of her Pins....I hand stitched it all so don't look too closely lol!



And the painting is titled "The Hare Moon" and I thought it fitting for Ostara. I painted it in January hoping to use it for this swap Wink
