31  Bird's Egg Decorations in Easter by Phizzychick on: February 20, 2013 09:30:54 AM
These weren't necessarily made for Easter, just as Spring decorations, but this seemed like the best place for them anyway.

An old book of bird's eggs meets a wooden necklace. A bit of light sanding, a scissor snip or two and some glue later, and voila! Smiley



The book had two eggs on one page for some of the smaller eggs, so I included one on each side and then their names on the little tag.

32  Someone is watching you... in Completed Projects by Phizzychick on: February 20, 2013 09:16:38 AM
 Cheesy

I'm in the middle of altering a little decorative wooden house/display shelf thingymebob, and didn't want to use the drawer in it, so I decided to create something else with it. Playing around in some of my junk boxes this is what evolved.

33  Coccinella septemcalvariapunctata in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Phizzychick on: February 03, 2013 06:30:23 AM
This was created for a local exhibition with the title "Beauty and the Macabre". I bought a couple of these glass dome displays at a charity shop and knew I wanted to use one in some way for this exhibition. It had a truly hideous fake flower arrangement in there before...I'll spare you the photo Cheesy

I had a hard time thinking of something that was both beautiful and also macabre, I kept thinking of one or the other until I decided on the skull image for the spots. I wanted it to otherwise look just like a Victorian display.

The ladybird (ladybug) is all paper with pipecleaners inside the legs for support. I tried to make some of the ridges underneath and the legs as accurate as I could.



I covered the wooden base with old disctionary pages and them tissue paper torn into strips, then watercoloured. The ladybird is on a lovely patch of moss, twigs and leaves.


Here he is on the loose Cheesy

35  Collaged Works in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Phizzychick on: January 22, 2013 08:40:05 AM
A few collaged canvas boards. I started these yonks ago, and have just got around to tinkering with them to finish them off. They all have a painted base which I've randomly printed with stamps and bubblewrap, then collaged and added randon bits to my heart's content Cheesy

Thanks for looking! Smiley

36  Just tea for two, and two for tea... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Phizzychick on: January 07, 2013 06:22:00 AM
...just me for you, and you for me... Smiley

Inspired by my 'family portraits' http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418605.0 I made some more with my favouite things...cups of tea! Cheesy

They're 5x7 boards covered with pages from an old Italian book (that somebody had very kindly left handwritten notes in), inked a quick teacup sketch and painted a little with watercolours. Then I added some vintage lace, bits of scrapbooking paper, vintage buttons, and the wee teabag tags hanging over the cups.







Thanks for looking Smiley

37  Family Portraits in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Phizzychick on: January 03, 2013 04:09:21 AM
I've been collecting photos of interesting people for a while and thought they deserved their own portraits Smiley

Just some old book pages, lacey bits and a few splashes of paint here and there...

A wrap would be fun! I also think it would be fun to knit more rows and create a Dr Who style sky scarf.

Here's my choices. Obviously I'll have to be selective with the big 'un Smiley

39  Re: Harry Potter Tree Skirt in Winter Holidays by Phizzychick on: December 19, 2012 05:32:56 AM
I've lost a couple of the sections somewhere in my craft room, but you get the idea Cheesy

First I attached some sheets of paper together to create a piece large enough for the skirt. Then I drew a large circle the size I wanted the skirt to be using a pencil and piece of string to draw it out. I just drew around a little bowl for the centre circle. It helps if it's glass so you can see your centre mark! Then I just started dividing it into sections.

Get ready for the fantabulousness that is my package from tapestrymlp. And when I say package...check this wee fella out Wink

He is amazing. Words cannot express how much I love him! He looks so serene, no doubt enjoying a well earned rest in a 'bath' of Ho Ho Ho Holiday Blend tea after a good day's mischief! I can only imagine the work and patience this fella took to make. So much talent!






Here's the whole elfy goodness together...I love it all to bits!


She did so well managing to catch this elf, I hear they're sneaky to catch! It's beautifully made, and already up on my tree!


A gorgeous altered tin that is so true...I love it! I always get knickers and socks from my mum in my stocking Cheesy (what, 39 year old women shouldn't still get stocking gifts from their parents? Tongue)




Thank you so much, tapestrymlp! Merry Elfmass! Grin
