In between college work i've gone back to my polymer charm making, quite enjoying a change of scene!. Decided to go down the route of making my own molds too!, helped made some nice precise and even charmies. Considering They've been uber popular among my pals and family, what do you guys think?
Dying to make more, just no time at the moment!. Any suggestions or requests?, Or even any crits or tips?
As i don't update on here often, more of my crafty goodness can be found regularly on my facebook art/craft profile
So i'd for my college project i had chosen the brief "Second life", where i had to take discarded materials and give them more meaning/higher quality.
So i created this from Newspaper, Blackbags, VHS tape and ringpulls A more detailed description of how i did this/what ideas spurred it on can be found on my blog (Compulsory for my course, few pages worth of reading..).
So i've been looking for a nice lingerie set, but found that they're all a tad out of my budget or not to my taste. So after scouring the internet, and finding a lovely outfit unfortunately from China (Wasn't risking it not fitting then having to fight the post office to return it). I doodled up a quick design from the photo i'd seen, altered it slightly to my taste, ordered in some Silk, Lace and elastic, Sewed it all together (No shop bought pattern used!, drafted it myself from scratch, Alot of just luck and crossed fingers!). The result, This!
Got to admit i'm very please, especially considering i've never worked with lace before.
Edit: Thank You so much for the lovely comments, now feel i've got the confidence to try create a few more pieces, even purely my own designs . More coming soon!
I wanted a tartan skirt, therefore i made one. I now feel truly Scottish haha. Even if it is the Stewart Tartan and not mines.. I'm pretty proud off this actually. 1st real attempt at pleats and it went rather swell, close ups of button and hem etc, needle is now removed forgot to take it before photo. >_< It closes with poppers now. No pattern was used, just alot of crossed fingers.
Hiya guys This is a corset made out of collaged recycled newspaper, for my Art Degree class, "Integrated Project", The Natural World. I constructed my own "Fabric" and used no pattern. It doesnt completely fit..But oh well, wasnt really meant to be worn. This is a bit rushed, i'll finish later. Tell me what you think
The ties are made out of braided black bag strips.
Hiya guys This is a corset made out of collaged recycled newspaper, for my Art Degree class, "Integrated Project", The Natural World. This is made from fused crisp packets, cut into the shape of various leaves, with a wire strip glue gunned down the center of each to allow shape, and each glue gunned onto a wire spiral. In a plant pot filled with newspaper.
I think it's quite cute, could be used as a ornament...or a cat toy or something.. I duno', lemme' know what ya' think
So i thought id give this charm making business a go, seen some lovely examples plastered all over the tinternets. Only made a few to see what people think, need to get a better variety of clay and keep practicing! All hand made with Fimo, ready to go on a bracelet with the wee eyepin and jumprings.
