2661  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 22, 2011 03:35:11 PM
Yeah.... there's not a frozen snowball's chance in Hades that all of my stuff is going to fit in the container. Sorry Jill! I think you won't mind, though.  Wink

Aw man, how sad for me!  Wink

So, as promised, I didn't do any crafting and instead helped people move all weekend.  How fun for me, right?  I did finish a project on friday that turned out really cute.  My sister looked at me and was like, that's gonna be fun to ship.  Well, yeah, like I want this to be easy?  This one item alone probably wouldn't fit into the "one container".  The rest probably will, well the rest for each person and their own container.  Lol.  If I had to fit it ALL into one, that would never happen.  Right now they all seem to fit into a paper grocery bag, but I'm not even close to done yet, and they aren't wrapped yet, and that takes up even more space.

Here's hoping for a more productive week.  Next week will be the most productive off all, since I have two days off than I normally have off, due to my boss being out of town that week.  Then there is labor day, as well!  WEEEE!

Question!  Where are we posting those claims?  On this thread, or threw PMs?  (Sorry if you mentioned this before, I just need clarification so I can be my best!  ^_^)

For example. One person may have the theme of Harry Potter - A, B, and C.

You must fight for the good Harry Potter letters!  Whomever has the quickest fingers, wins!  lol!

Ooo, I like that hometown one from Mountains and Clouds.  So pretty!  I loved when people would claim my "your location" theme!  It was so fun getting cards about where they lived.  So fun!

Everyone is making such lovely cards this month!!!

Thanks! Well then you did a really good job with lining up on a hunch;)

lol, thanks!  ^_^  You can see through the freezer paper a little, but I just do a little wiggling to try to get it perfect before I iron it.  You can get pretty good control w/ freezer paper.

I am so excited is late tonight yet. hahaha I rolled my ankle really bad this last week. It has been lovely shades of blue and purple and swollen so my mood has been rather cranky. My swaps have really been a source of happiness and distraction lately.

Ouchie!  I hope you are ok!  Lets get this lady some partners!  ^_^

I hope the day goes by fast!  I have a couple extra days off next week, since my boss will be out of town, so I think I will start crafting my ATCs then.  I will spend this week on the drafting board.

Wow,those shirts look amazing! Kudos to you! Grin

I've done some stencils myself with spraypaint,not on fabric though just canvas. Unfortunately freezer paper,as far as I know,isn't for sale in over here in The Netherlands Sad...but I'll think I'm gonna buy some from ebay.
Anyway...I was wondering how you got the layers lined up so well? Do you have a technique for that?
Also what brand of fabric paint do you use?...do you thin it with water or just apply it as it comes straight out of the bottle? Would regular acrylics+textile medium work too (also on the long term)?

Thanks!

I don't really have a method for lining up the layers.  I just try my best!  And besides, if you don't get it exact, its not too big of a deal, because you can always go and clean it up at the end.  Fill in where ever it needs filling in and whatnot.

I use Tulip Soft Fabric Paint.  I don't water it down or anything, I generally just squirt some onto a paper plate and dab it on with a little sponge that you use to put makeup on (those triangle ones for foundation).  I haven't used the acrylics and the textile medium yet, though I do have some that I've been meaning to play around with.

Can I ask a dumb question?  What are "pin up letters?"  They sound super fun and maybe I want to steal, I mean borrow, that idea!  Smiley  It's August 19th!  I'm legal!  I can play now!!!!!  Smiley

I'm pretty sure that redstar is talking about have a pin-up lady (those sultry ladies from the 50s) on a card w/ a letter from her name on it.

You should come play with us!

I officially finished a large item last night.  YAY YAY!  I picked up some supplies for some other projects to start last night.

Yay yay!  My first cross stitch.  It was quite fun to do!  I'm glad you liked both of the cards I made!

Those hedgehogs are super cute!!!
