When you said distressed, did you do that with a fine grit sand paper?

If I saw the frog one framed, I'd probably buy that ... it is adore adorable. My best freind & I are always buying each otehr frogs, & frog princes.  =D


When I say distressed - yes finest I've got which I think is 200 - I've tried coarser grain sandpapers and they are too rough for most images.

Would you pay fifteen dollars for it unframed? I queried these at a local boutique this summer and got some suggestions and now I am working on building up stock and will pitch them formally after my youngest turns one.

Awww...thanks for the nice comments guys...I think she'll like it to.  And Mary Bell...that poem is so cute, I don't think I've heard that one. I think I'll use it on her birthday card somehow, cause I know the sun will shine for her again.

Thanks

In that case let me type it out accurately (I typed it from memory) and give you the credit...

Ladybird, Ladybird,
Where do you hide?

Under a leaf on its
feathery side;
safe from the lightening -
safe from the rain -
here I shall stay till
the sun shines again.

by Ivy O. Eastwick

I am glad you enjoyed the poem - I memorize weather poems with my daughter...

Thanks! I am glad you like it. You ought to post something. I see that so far you've only lurked and made a few comments. The stuff you've commented on is lovely so I would guess you've got some neat things tucked away.

He is adorable!! Do they have pigs - I think you should do three piggies because he reminds me of the big bad wolf - or maybe you could make a red hooded cape for a child and have them hold turnspit!!

These are iron on transfers onto paper I made by hand. Most of my paper is either brown paper bags from the grocery store or newspaper.

Absolutely adorable. I love ladybugs...

Ladybug, ladybug where do you hide
under a leaf on  its feathery side
safe from the lightening
safe from the rain
here I will stay till the sun shines again.

I hope the sun shines for your Mom soon...perhaps having a child like you is good sunshine!!

Sorry - for being so hokey.

---them to a practical use inspires more recollections than when they were tucked away in photo albums and scrapbooks... but you might want to have a decorative paper backing or some event photos or memories written down. i took the finished bookmarks to kinko's to laminate and cut them out leaving a protective border around each ticket collage to seal out moisture.

Very clever and I love you take on what constitutes memories and how to make them last - I like the idea of writing on the back or putting a photo on the back.

I really like the plate rack frames that you decorated - fun and whimsical...
669  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Origami boxes made from magazine pages on: March 20, 2005 03:21:23 AM
I make boxes out of paper too but they are a different pattern than this so I would be interested in the instructions too.

These are a little more classic looking than mine and I find them very charming. I paritcularly like the newsprint effect on the one.

BTW another paper that works well is Calendar Pages and if you are like me and my husband you don't throw them away and you've got a million calendar's under the bed and this gives you something nice to do with them. (I wouldn't touch his collectable LOTR ones though!:)

I really like the Andy Warhol effect you used!! Very fun and creative and suitable to this project, I think.

I just posted a bunch of the same thing in the paper craft section. So if you don't mind, I will make a couple of suggestions.

First, to decrease the peeling press for at least five minutes.

Second, use acryllic paint and water to tone the canvas before you transfer (you can even press embossed objects on the paint to give textures) Sandpaper it to distress the canvas before you transfer.

Third distress some more after you've transferred to really make it look intentional.

Fourth, spray with Kamaar Varnish to help preserve the finish.

I hope you don't mind but I've been experimenting with this for awhile and love to see others doing neat things.

BTW a link to mine if you are interested:
