1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Frida Kahlo Shrine on: June 21, 2014 05:44:23 PM
My sister loves Frida Kahlo so I decided to make her a shrine to put on her mantle.



I made a peg Frida with a little painting



A close up of Frida






This is the front of the shrine



This is the back

And this is the inside



The quote reads "pies pa que los quiero si tengo a las para valor."

I dont speak spanish very well so google says it means

"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?"

Thanks for looking Smiley

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk ATB on: February 11, 2014 11:02:23 AM
For the ATB swap I noticed my partner liked steampunk so after some research I created this.

(Sorry about the picture quality)


She wanted one that hung on the wall so I attached some metallic ribbon Smiley


I used pages from the book Titus Alone (which I found out kind of helped to start the steampunk movement), and aged them with coffee so i could collage them for the background.

I also used metal gears and beads to embellish the sides and bottom.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Japan ATB on: February 09, 2014 09:09:36 PM
The recent ATB swap has got me addicted. I made this Japan ATB for my buddy Vincentvanbuck.



I started out with these images:





I cut them into strips and put them on the block:



Then I used these Japanese coins (straight out of VVB's stockpile):



And used them as feet for the block:





This is the back: On the top I painted a crane



The top is another stack of coins and the rising sun

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Fairy on a flower - lots o' photos on: December 03, 2013 08:09:32 PM
I made this fairy for a swap and I fell in love with her, it was kind of hard to see her go, but I am very proud of how she came out.

I purchased a nice fake rose and cut off the stem and glued the leaves to the bottom so it is just a simple flower. Then I made the fairies body out of clay, her wings were from a butterfly barrette that I murdered for it's beautiful wings. I found doll hair to make wigs and made her pretty hair and glued a flower button to make her barrette. Then I tied a pretty gold ribbon around it to make it sort of a play on an over-sized ornament.

I have many pictures of her:

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Gypsy Shrine on: December 03, 2013 08:00:03 PM
I made this Gypsy Shrine for a swap Smiley

The book part is a paper box I found at Michael's, I covered it in different types of scrap booking paper to mimic a vintage circus fortune teller. The fortune teller herself is paper on card stock. The table is polymer clay and there is a clear marble as a crystal ball. I also put in some small vials filled with different 'potions' a gypsy might use. I'm loving making shrines and am fully addicted Smiley

6  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Hoopla on: November 10, 2013 02:44:53 PM
I created this for my house. I found some awesome fabric at Joann's that looked like a scary Halloween scene. Then I used felt to make a monster, Frankenstein, a spider, a bad, a ghost and a pumpkin. I'm happy with how it turned out, it gives a little Halloween whimsy to my decor Smiley

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Paper Ornaments on: November 10, 2013 02:40:23 PM
I made a few paper ornaments for a swap, I was quite proud of them Smiley



8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Crafty Detective Swap?! on: October 22, 2013 10:27:05 AM
So I was talking to my sister (Hollycopter381) the other day and she said that her favorite swap she's done was a crafty detective swap.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297348.0#axzz2iTGtdRWQ

I searched around and it doesn't seem like anyone has done one in a while, I'm to much of a spaz to organize a swap but if anyone ever wants to do this swap I'd be all over it! It sounds like so much fun, esp. since we already stalk each other anyway, it'd be an even bigger surprise when we get our packages.

Anywho, just throwing it out there Smiley
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dia de los Muertos Doll heads on: September 12, 2013 08:30:57 AM
So my sister has a theme in her apartment of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). She wanted some new things for her mantle so I painted the faces of these barbie doll heads.

This one is my favorite:


Here are all 3 ladies together:
