"That's right baby, Daddy's here..." I was not expecting that voice out of that turtle! AHAHAHAHA!

Yeah, that cracked me up, too!

My partner and I have some games in common.  My husband went and looked up one of the games that we didn't know that was on her list and told me that I would like it, too.  Looks like we are finding new games to like this way!  My partner is going to make something for my hubby.  He will be so happy!

I had a mailbox full o' fun today!  I got THREE ATC's!!  Yay!

The first two are from blupaisan for my themes Trees and Scottish Dancing and I love them both!

Blupaisan said she had a hard time deciding what kind of tree to do and decided to do a silhouette which I love her for because it is my favorite way to see them.  I love it!  It has a beautiful watercolor background.  Its called "Lone Tree at Sunset".

And an awesome Highland Dancer!    And I love love LOVE her!  She is doing the Fling!  I love that dance!    Its the first of the dances that I learned.  ^_^  She is so wonderful.  I love the plaid fabric in the background.  Beautifully done!

This one is from gozer, we did a personal swap.  She sent me this amazing girl and dragon.  Its called "The Prize".  It is so friggin' cool!  She also sent me a really cool coin purse w/ pirate print and some ATC covers.  Yay!

Thanks ladies!

Hiya everyone!  I'm Jill and I live in Washington State.  I'm still new at ATCs but I'm having a lot of fun doing them, and I'm still a swap noob, so I hope I do this all correctly.  I'm good with nudity and profanity, but please nothing political or religious.  My favorite things to do are reading (mainly fantasy/sci-fi), cooking/baking, playing video games with my husband, and crafting (duh!).

-Harry Potter
-home canning
-"I can has cheezburger" cats (caption your own silly kitties!)
-Final Fantasy (video games)
-Scottish/Highland Dance or anything Scottish in general

WHOA!!! I was never into ATC's or anything of that ilk but this is probably the coolest thing I've seen done with paper and ink! I'd love to make greetings cards like this. Woohooo--- it'll trip people out!!! XD

They do make fun greeting cards!  That's exactly what I learned it for at the stamping party I went to, and then applied it to ATC's.  It totally does trip people out!  It is fun!  I made one, showed my husband and he was amazed with the one I made there.  Then he totally forgot about it and was totally amazed again when I made this ATC.  lol!
2730  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / KISS shirts and shoes using freezer paper stenciling on: June 18, 2011 09:12:21 PM
I just did my first freezer paper projects and OMG did that take me a long time to do!  I normally do plastic stencils with discharge paste but I wanted to try something new.  My sister got my Dad tickets to a KISS concert for his birthday last month.  The concert is next week and so for father's day (and the concert) I decided to make him and my uncle, whom is going with him, shirts to wear.  I also did a pair of shoes for my dad, as well.  So here are my first freezer paper stenciling projects!  (Images are from the internet, not original art by me)

I love that I got to use color!  With discharge paste you get a fun distressed look for your shirts, but its always the same color.  I have shirts with color, now!  Yay!  I will get better with doing these eventually.  I'm not use to cutting out with an exacto knife instead of a hot stencil cutter.

And now to the shoes:

I also did these with freezer paper stencils.  I just did the white part on the faces with the stencils and then added the hair and colors.  Its way harder to apply freezer paper to shoes, but it worked.  The swirls and designs behind the faces were already on the shoes.

I used fabric paint for all of these and used a little sponge to apply the white and colors on the shirts, and the white on the faces.

And this is what my hand looked like at the end of all this.  LOL!  I really like this method of stenciling and I definitely think I will try this again.  I guess the only downside is that it takes a white to do and that the stencils aren't re-usable like my plastic stencils I make for the discharge paste.  Oh well, color is fun!!!
