11  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Day of the Dead shrine on: October 15, 2015 11:59:16 AM
Made for my partner in the 13 Days of Halloween 2015 swap.

The box was once used to store library stamps back in the days before computers.   Grin
The flowers, heart, and crown are sculpted of clay.  The chair crafted from a champagne bottle top.  Plastic skulls covered with glitter, skull and heart beads are also piled about.  Papel picado was fashioned out of tissue paper.

I made this for my teenage niece.  For when she's feeling a bit "goth".

14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / day of the dead skull cut out on: February 27, 2015 11:00:55 PM
this is a Day of the Dead themed artwork that I made for the recent Box of Color swap.  I cut out a decorated skull with roses, backed it with purple tissue paper and added some fabric leaves.

I chose a page from an old spanish novel the cut the images out of but it was very brittle.  In the future, I will probably choose newer paper to avoid obvious mistakes.

I made these for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap

I was inspired by some earring that I found via pinterest and created my own version of them with felt, ribbon, beads and embroidery thread.

made for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap

My design combined as many Halloween tropes as possible!  Bats against a full moon, a spooky house in silhouette, creepy tree, gravestone, pumpkins, and an eerie black cat with glowing eyes!
17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Halloween tees on: October 14, 2014 11:21:33 PM
I made some stenciled t shirts for my partner in the "Mini 13 Days of Halloween" swap:

I found a flowered t shirt in the local thrift store that I thought gave off a shabby chic Day of the Dead vibe and added a cool embracing skeleton couple stencil to it.  The stencil was rather a @*#%* to cut out but I liked the result.  Unfortunately I used a spray fabric paint and accidentally got some outside the stencil design itself.  I added some hearts to the area in an attempt to pass it off as intentional.   Grin
for the kids:

Her boys like zombies and vampires and the youngest loves pink!

This is a peyote bead pattern I came up with for a Jim Henson swap a while ago.  A friend of mine is both a big Muppets fan and a musician so I decided to make one for her birthday.

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bride of Frankenstein peyote bracelet on: March 13, 2014 10:23:54 PM
This is a Bride of Frankenstein bracelet that I made for my partner in the recent Monster Swap.  It is done in 2 drop peyote stitch.  The design below the Bride is meant to be the mob of villagers marching through a cemetery from the original movie.  (or it could be a completely unrelated group of zombies if you aren't familiar with the film, according to a friend!   Smiley)
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fungi wreath on: March 10, 2014 12:34:31 AM
Winter is lasting forever here.  To remind myself that warmer seasons will follow, I made myself a mushroom wreath. 

The mushrooms are made from felt and the moss is crocheted yarn over a dollar store wreath.  In several months, the real things will be growing in the woods!
