104  young frankenstein shadowbox! in Completed Projects by erica_tattoos on: January 30, 2011 06:48:29 PM
i recently participated in the mel brooks themed swap. my partner told me her favorite quote was from young frankenstein - "come here, you hot monster!" my original plan was to cross-stitch the quote for her, but then my dog ate my last embroidery hoop - and the nearest craft store is 2 hours away! so i had to improvise a lil.... and i think the results were way cooler than any cross-stitch i could have done! =)







i glued fabric to cover the shadowbox (opted to take the glass out since i'd be shipping it and didn't wanna risk breakage). painted the quote inside with acrylic, and then hot-glued goodies all over....  even did the back! 

anyways, just wanted to share! thanks for looking, c&c appreciated!

105  men in tights tee for mb swap! (freezer paper stencil) [now wih pattern] in Stenciling: Completed Projects by erica_tattoos on: January 30, 2011 06:10:58 PM
sheepblue was kind enough to explain to me the whole freezer paper stencil process. i recently participated in the mel brooks themed swap and was able to use the process to make a tee for my swap partner! we both ranked robin hood: men in tights high on our favorites lists, and this is from one of my favorite scenes in the movie!





of course i had to push my luck by attempting a two-color stencil on my first try, but things worked out! i had a very small amount of bleeding under the stencil in a couple spots where i put the black on top of the white, but fortunately it was in non-essential areas and i was able to fix them up with a paintbrush.

thanks for looking! c&c appreciated!  Cheesy

here's my original pattern i drew up on my pooter! if anybody uses it, send me a pic! =)

106  spaceballs alien stuffie! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by erica_tattoos on: January 30, 2011 05:56:39 PM
hey all, i recently participated in the mel brooks themed swap, and made my very first stuffie ever! wanted to share... he's a lil rough around the edges, but i think he makes up in personality what he lacks in craftsmanship! =)





he's about 6" high, made of felt scraps and scrap quilt batting. details are fabric paint, cane is sculpey. i learned a lot making this lil guy. i will definitely be attempting more stuffies in the future, but with better qualities of materials to start with and a lil more preparation in the planning department before starting!  Grin

thanks for looking, c&c appreciated!

110  fabric collage wall art! in Completed Projects by erica_tattoos on: December 22, 2010 08:16:45 AM
so i already posted these over on the last-minute christmas craft-a-long ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367117.0 ) but i wanted to share them here too...

it all started when my brother's girlfriend and i decided we'd craft for each other instead of buying christmas presents. we exchanged wists, and this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197185.0 was on both of our lists! the first thing on her list was an art print of a cup of coffee.... which inspired my first fabric collage with paint pen stitches and button embellishments.... and it was so fun and easy and turned out so cute that it snowballed from there and i ended up making them for almost all the ladies on my list this year...
(the pics are a lil light and not as crisp as i'd like, but oh well...)

















inspirations...
monster!- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366773.0;topicseen
lady with baby- http://www.africanart.org.uk/african_art_pics/african_art_3.jpg
the stilt houses are inspired by a painting a friend of mine did...
and the deer- http://www.secretsof.com/image.pcgi?image=embroiderytips/sewinspired/designs/vintagedeer5x7/design%206.jpg

thanks for looking, and merry christmas / holiday of your choice everybody!!! =)
