1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / *The Aggro Crag!* (Warning: Proud Dorkiness Ahead) on: October 14, 2008 08:26:20 PM
I'm very excited-- I can't remember the last time I posted any of my own stuff! Please forgive the long explanation ahead.

So. Back in February, I was brainstorming how to make the Aggro Crag (the prize in the Nickelodeon show GUTS), as a birthday gift for my brother. We have been stalking eBay for years, hoping one would show up, but the select few who have a piece of the Crag are smart enough keep it.  Smiley Although his birthday has long since passed, I *just* finished the project (and apologized profusely for the tardiness!). Thanks to everyone who responded to my cry for help (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229854.msg2499953#msg2499953), you got the creative juices going and I was able to make:

A GLOWING PIECE OF THE RADICAL ROCK!

Front:


Back (this one truer to actual colors):


AND... it glows bright blue/green for *8 hours*!!! I got the most incredible glow paint, but the pics didn't turn out. I have one of my bro hoisting the Crag in victory, but I have to blur the face before I post!  Wink

Thanks for looking! Back to you, Mike!

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Attempted Agro Crag- HELP! on: February 25, 2008 10:20:22 AM
Hi all you crafty folks,

So my brother and I were big fans of the show GUTS when we were kids. We still look on ebay sometimes to see if people are selling pieces of the Agro Crag (a big chunk of glow-in-the-dark "rock"). They never are, so I thought for his 24th birthday I'd make him a piece! Only thing is, I'm not sure how to do it. I was thinking resin, but I've never worked with it before. Do you make your own molds? Where would I get some that glows in the dark? Basically, any help would be greatly appreciated!  Cheesy


Here's a photo of what the it looks like, although you can't tell here that it's kinda a seafoam green and glows:

3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / My First MPs! (Pic INTENSE!) on: December 22, 2007 09:26:09 AM
So I've loved soap forever, and have been stalking this board for awhile. After seeing all of your awesome projects, I finally jumped in and tried some MP! Here are my first MP successes (after several trashed "experiments"  Wink ) :

Oatmeal Lemon (these are my favorite, so I made a bunch of them!)



Peppermint, these have pieces of Candy Canes in them and in real life are BRIGHT magenta!



Oatmeal Vanilla, although I added a bit too much oatmeal to one of them  Smiley



and last but not least Peppermint Hot Chocolate! This one smells amazing, and I think the color is really unusual


Comments are definitely welcome!  Cheesy Thanks so much for looking!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Happy journal! on: August 21, 2007 09:45:06 PM
So for my cousin's 35th birthday, I decided to make her a journal! Cutting down the bookboard and papers helped me finally decide that it's really time to invest in a heavy-duty paper cutter. Better get on that... Smiley Anyway, I hope you all like it!

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Shadowbox for Dad's Birthday on: April 08, 2005 01:37:35 PM
     So this year, I was stumpted on what to give my Dad for his birthday. I really couldn't handle the thought of getting him one more meaningless trinket, so I turned to craftster for ideas. Lo and behold, I come across Mojo's post about a shadow box they had done, and I was inspired. We go up to Maine every summer, so I used a photo of that as the background. I painted the bottom of the box different shades of green and the sides blue and stuck pieces of cotton to the sides and top for the clouds. I made little stands out of cardstock for the sailboat and turkey, and glued them into place. I used some frog stickers that I stuck onto fishing line to make the frogs look as though they were jumping. In the photo you can see the fishing line but that is only because of the flash, in real life you can't see it!
      My dad loved it, and this is how it turned out (sorry about the slightly lame pic, it was the only way to not get any light refecting in the glass!):

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / My "Portrait" on: March 20, 2005 08:05:18 PM
So I was in art class my freshman year of high school and was told I had to create a rather large and realistic self portrait using only charcoal. Not a particularly creative assignment, and realism is not exactly my strong suit. I am caucasian with super-curly hair, which becomes important later in the story. So I work and work on this assignment when my art teacher decides to re-do my work. About a month later I take home the "finished" product to show to my mom, who says "Who is that cute hispanic girl in the picture?"  Huh

The sad part was, that is actually what it looked like!!
