Okay, I've been bad at remembering to post on Craftster as I've been busy launching my shop Oddity Closet and re-vamping my photography business, but here's a couple of things Smiley


Shoulder bag with owl appliqué detailing.


Lace mouse ears with flower and pearl effect bead detailing.

First two projects of the year finished! Smiley

Fallout 3 gift package for my boyfriend.



Christmas and birthday presents combined as his birthday is the 8th of January and we didn't see eachother over the holidays. I papier-mâchéd an old jewellery box, hand painted and re-lined the inside. Phone photos don't really do it justice but my camera is currently being borrowed by a friend so it's the best I can offer. There's a lot more texture in the paint job than the picture shows. The Buffout was full of gum as he's constantly chewing gum, and the pre-war money has personalised silly couples coupons on the back as a fun little extra. I also included bought presents, like the art of Fallout 3 book and some glow in the dark bedroom dice because they kinda look radioactive haha. Major thanks to http://emptysamurai.deviantart.com/ whose printables made this possible, as well as my mum who helped me finish it on time haha.


Bioshock Infinite gift box



All hand made except for the 'bring us the girl...' part inside which I printed due to running out of time. I papier-mâchéd the box, painted in a slight gradient effect which doesn't really show in the photo, and hand drew the vigors and logo as well. Hard to see in the image but everything is on raised platforms rather than being flat to the box itself. Also made with the blue colour challenge in mind Smiley Inside I made a candle in a tin which I decoupaged a Bioshock picture onto. The candle is vanilla scented because I always use vanilla perfume and he says he misses the smell of it when I'm not at his.



Happy to say that he absolutely loved all of it! I was a bit nervous because we've only been together 3 months, and I'd never crafted anything for him before, but he was ecstatic!
