These are beautiful and such a thoughtful gift. I bet these napkins will be treasured and passed down.

It's better than non-terrible.  It's great!  Very hot dress- keep at it!

This coat is beautiful and very dramatic.  I love all the details around the pockets and the sleeves.  It must have been very time consuming.  Impressive!

26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sharpie Mug DIY Sealant? on: October 04, 2012 04:38:46 PM
My advice is to spring for the paint that's made for this craft, Porcelaine or whatever its called.  They make pens too, not just paint.  Think about it, buying sharpies and then sealant, or just buying the right kind of paint in the first place. 

That being said, thanks for posting this!  I suspected the sharpie mug craft was dubious...

I think it sounds like a great idea!  I'd love to do something like that to my couch but it is gigantic and microfiber.  Can't wait to see what you do!

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Hooded Dresses // Vintage Sheets on: September 25, 2012 07:22:06 AM
Really love how both of these turned out! Great colors on both. The second dress reminded me of candy corn too, at first, but it actually looks like that cool 70's/80's sunset patten that was on everything. I always loved that look.
You are right that hoods are great to have on a dress and pockets are great! But usually hard to find Sad
These dresses are actually very pretty and flattering too. Good show!
30  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Avengers Silhouette wall art PIC HEAVY on: September 23, 2012 05:44:02 PM
I don't know which thread this goes under.   Is it reconstructed?  I used torn-up magazine pages for the color, but the canvases and paint were all new materials.  Anyway, our house needs art, big time.  I wanted to make something that really reflects our family, instead of just buying something with flowers or whatever.  So, I give you: Avengers Wall Art! (mixed media)

I found silhouettes of four of our favorite Marvel heroes and printed them out onto contact paper, then cut out the silhouettes using an EXacto knife. 

On each canvas, I made a collage of colorful magazine paper, using one dominant color for each hero.  Hulk's is green with some purple, Iron Man's is red with some yellow, etc.  This was laid down using Paper Mod podge. 

Then, I lay the contact paper down onto the dried collage, and painted over them with a small roller.  The roller was my husband's idea, and a good one at that.  Some paint still seeped under the contact paper, making the edges a lot messier than I wanted.  However, this is not an issue when looking from a reasonable distance. 

I added some details my husband requested to make Cap, Spidey, and Iron Man look more like themselves.  They are just painted on with acrylic.

Here's what it looks like if your living room is really messy so you figure adding some art rather than cleaning up will help. 

Comments/critiques welcome.  This was a lot of fun to make!
