2643  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zelda and Mario Stitch Markers on: August 10, 2011 04:02:28 PM
I tried my hand w/ Fimo clay for my swap partner in the Video Game Swap.  She requested stitch markers for knitting.  What nerd is complete without a set of nerdy stitch markers for nerdy knitty?  Well she is definitely complete now! 

Ocarinas from Zelda and Mushrooms from Mario!

The ocarinas ended up having a lot of fingerprint ridges, and I wasn't sure what to do with that.  I guess I could have sanded them down, but I didn't, since they were so small.  I painted them w/ regular acrylic paint and added a clear coat to them afterwards. 

Thanks for looking!
2644  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fawful Stuffie! on: August 10, 2011 03:55:14 PM
For the Video Game Swap, my partner listed Fawful from Super Mario Brothers as one of the characters she likes.  I was clueless as to this character, but after some research found he would a likely canidate for a stuffie, and I was determined to make a geeky stuffie!  I could have done a moogle or something more common, but this was one that had never been done before.  So I printed off a picture and went to work (w/ my limited stuffie making knowledge).  I did all the sewing by hand (and manly in the car driving back and forth across Washington state on vacation), so it did end up taking me a long time to do.  My family gave me many confused looks as I was stitching away.  "Fawful??"  For the most part, they are all nerds and figured out who it was after I told them which video game it was from.  "Oh, from Super Mario Brothers, I think I remember him."  But still gave me weird looks for picking such an obscure character to do.  Meh, its what my partner wanted!  ^_^

Upclose and personal w/ the dastardly man himself. 

And him posing w/ a picture of himself that I used as the inspiration.  Normally he has legs, but I opted for legless. 

His body and jacket are made from fleece, his eyes and mouth are felt.  I wanted him to be pretty much snugglie (despite his maniacal nature) so that why I opted for fleece over felt for the most part.

The picture doesn't show it, because at the last minute I realized that I forgot to add his little wisp of black hair on the top of his head.  I did that w/ puffy paint.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!
2645  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Chocobo and Moogle Tote bag on: August 10, 2011 03:37:30 PM
For the video game swap my partner listed that she likes chocobos and moogles from Final Fantasy, and totes!  So together, this love child was made. 

I found the image for the design online here:  http://silverdragon27.deviantart.com/art/CHOCOBO-and-moogle-22994772

Here is the finished result.  I used the freezer paper method, which I'm still new to but I am loving!  I did the base colors with different layers of stenciling and then painted on the black lines and some details.

And here are some "work in progress" shots:

Here is the first layer of freezer paper ironed onto the bag awaiting paint.

And here is where all the base colors are down.  I use the triangle sponges that you use to apply foundation for the paint.

Thanks for looking!
2646  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing ATC swap discussion thread--3.0 on: August 10, 2011 10:21:15 AM
I plan on opening the swap up on Sunday for the theme swap!

Ooo yay yay!  I can't wait!  I will have to diligently think on what theme I want to start.  I have some possibilities roaming around my head.
2647  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 2011 r3 mini 13 days of Halloween(signups CLOSED. Send outs 25/9) on: August 10, 2011 10:12:01 AM
GAHHHHHH I just came up with an awesome idea that I wanna try now!...but I'm stuck at work, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

lol!  That's the worst!  I usually spend the rest of the day obsessing about the idea and don't really focus really well on work.  We should all just quit our jobs and do full time craft swapping.  If only the world paid us to do swaps.  *sigh*

Finished another day today! Woohoo! Now for a trip to the library tomorrow for more supplies. What's that you ask? Supplies at the library? Yes, my friends. Yes.  Grin

oooOOoooo!  Curiouser and curiouser!  Quite the intriguery!  I can't wait to find out what you make w/ library supplies.  I do love me some books.

I received from mod35tbabe for "your location" theme.  Its awesome to get this one, since she lives in Australia!  This is my first non-USA location theme.  YAY YAY!

Cooma: gateway to the snowy mountains.  I love that the sheep are fuzzy!!!!  I keep petting them.  Goooood sheepies!

WideEyedLife and I did a personal swap as well, since I wanted to snag one of her ABCs.  I know you all want to see what she made!  ^_^

A cupcake entitles "YES!"  Ha ha!  Silly cupcake!

And a beautiful little lady.  This is truly a work of art and deserves to be in a little gilded frame, not a an ATC sleeve.  Her name is Elizabeth and she has a gothic feel to her.  Lovely!

Thanks, ladies, for the beautiful cards!!!
