1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Face wall hangings on: August 05, 2016 10:19:06 AM
This spring, I got obsessed (for a little while) with drawing these strange, usually elongated, faces, and when I picked up clay again, I started playing around with some sculptural faces. 

These are just some simple wall-hangings I made (and I will hopefully make more!):

2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Simple Patterned Bowl Set on: August 03, 2016 10:19:44 PM
I don't think I've ever posted on this board, and just recently started playing around with pottery again! (It's been at least 11 or 12 years!)

Anyway, I thought I'd post this little set of bowls, mostly because I wasn't sure what colors the slip glazes would end up...

I used a chunky soldate clay, just because I like playing with it (and its heft, haha!).  Before the second (cone10) firing, the colors looked like this:

I like that they ended up with a black/grey color scheme!

Thank you for looking!
3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Green Man Painted Shoes on: July 01, 2016 06:39:36 PM
I usually don't wear shoes... just slippers (flip-flops), but I decided I need to add a simple pair of shoes into my "repertoire" for when my toes might get a little chilly, so I ended up painting these little canvas shoes with a green man theme.

Thank you for looking!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Moon ATCs on: May 28, 2016 05:33:50 PM
I've been playing around more with acrylic paints and mediums, and recently made a series of five moon ATCs (inspired by a theme I claimed in the ongoing ATC swap).

I really like how they turned out!

5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Spammer?!! on: May 12, 2016 12:03:20 AM
I just logged on to Craftster and found a bunch of "project" posts (FOR SALE POSTS!) by a new member on the "clothing" board..... Ugh!  It's not only annoying, but it's bumping out actual "newest projects" from the homepage...

I am, however, very pleased to see that many of them have been "viewed" many times and none have comments, so, way to go, crafters! (Also, I'm guessing/hoping you all reported the posts too.) (Sorry, mods.)
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Block Print ATCs with Watercolor Background on: January 16, 2016 10:38:03 AM
I pulled a short edition of 24 ATC-size block prints (some were for an ATC print swap, and the rest are for gifts, etc.).

I made backgrounds with watercolor before I printed; I like how it makes each card unique.

Thanks for looking!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Grumpy Cat Magnets on: December 07, 2015 11:22:54 AM
I needed a small secret santa gift, and decided I wanted to go with snarky memes, but after searching a lot, decided to just do the same meme over and over.

These are magnets.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Oboe Nerd Cross-stitchin' on: December 07, 2015 11:05:36 AM
So, this semester I decided to do something nerdy and go back to school to study oboe... One of the things in which I've always been inconsistent is my reed-making, and I've lately realized that a lot of my struggles have to do with letting my knives get more dull than they should... (and also, that being in a hurry NEVER helps.)

Also, I haven't cross-stitched in a good long time.
So I made myself this inspirational list of "rules" for making reeds:

I think I'll keep it by when the crazies start to invade....

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 'Planets' acrylic painting on: November 27, 2015 03:14:50 PM
I have, once again, fallen off the painting train.. Here's my first in a while, playing around with negative space and acrylic paint.

It's 12" x 16", so not very big.

Here's a closer shot of the little traveler:

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Scrappy Happy Bag on: July 07, 2015 09:19:00 PM
With some summer travels coming up, I wanted to make something to carry a few arts/crafts/pens/watercolors/etc. around as I go, and I wanted something fun to carry these fun things, so I made this scrappy little bag out of fabrics I have had lying around.

I'm not a sewist at all, so I'm pretty proud that it turned out, and can serve its purpose!

The strap is made out of some of my old worn out (favourite) jeans-- so they can live on!

There are patches on all outside surfaces, and under the front flap, and the inside is lined with heavy duty navy denim.

and the back:

Some details....

Leftover rhinestones from a costume I had when I was an itty bitty baton twirler:

More bling and some fabric flowers (I often spend too much money at the fake flower store):

Polymer clay fish beads and plumeria I had made at some point.

Fun tiny buttons:

Polyclay sushi roll and fun flower beads:
