thanks starcakes! it was fun crafting for you! talking to you and stalking you gave me a lot of fun ideas, and we have  a lot in common as far as style is concerned, so it was easy to get an idea of the things you'd like! it has been fun to make a new friend!  Cheesy
885  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: men in tights tee for mb swap! (freezer paper stencil) on: January 30, 2011 10:54:55 PM
wow! thanks, guys! y'all are too sweet! it's painted with plain old fabric paint from walmart.... like tulip, i guess? you're supposed to squeeze it out the fine tip to draw with it, but i just squirted a bunch out on a paper plate and applied it with a sponge brush. took several coats, esp where the black is on top of the white.  Cheesy

i'm gonna edit my original post with the pattern, if anybody wants...

thanks again for the love!
886  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / young frankenstein shadowbox! 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!
887  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / men in tights tee for mb swap! (freezer paper stencil) [now wih pattern] 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! =)
888  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / spaceballs alien stuffie! 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!
