41  Darning Yarn Card Bookmarks in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Phizzychick on: March 11, 2014 04:04:15 PM
I was gifted a whole bunch of darning yarn cards a few months ago. Apart from using the yarns on them for their intended purpose, I wanted to do something with the pretty cards. I was finally inspired to make them into bookmarks. I got quite excited and made a whole bunch. You can never have too many bookmarks! Cheesy

They all have pretty much the same design elements, lace and ribbon tops (attached with staples), paper tape measure, flowers, stamps and butterflies.

42  Re: Terribly Important SOB - The Return GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by Phizzychick on: March 05, 2014 06:45:11 AM
I have received the most fabulously important things from Killam Creative!

Everything together, awesome crown, badass brooch and wall sign. Yes, that's me Phizzychick the Phabulous! Grin

Swoon! KC, definitely knew my tastes!

Phabulous sign, perfect to hang in my studio...

Badass, because I am! Crafted on a lovely vintage brooch. This is pinned on my coat as we speak, so all shall know...

And last but most certainly not least, a gorgeous woodland crown! It's so pretty, and KC made everything from scratch including the fantastic pinecone flower!

Darn, it's so hard to photograph in this greyness to fully do it justice! Here's it on me...

So pretty!

Thanks for such an amazing swap!

43  Heart Shrine Assemblage in Completed Projects by Phizzychick on: February 04, 2014 03:16:49 PM
I spent a bit of time recently scouring the road outside my local scrapyard for bits and bobs that hadn't made it into the yard. It's always surprising what you can find! Once they're thoroughly cleaned up it's amazing what they can be turned into!

I've had the box in my stash for a while, just waiting for the right time to use it. The half cog (new but aged with inks) fitted the top perfectly so I was lucky I didn't have to go looking for another one. The dominoes were from a set of vintage 'Dominoes for the Blind' I picked up in a charity shop. I love them, they're so knobbly! Cheesy

Thanks to my friend Sam Ryley for the ace photo. You can always tell which are mine and which I've pestered him to take Tongue

And for fun, some of the loot... Cheesy

44  TARDIS Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Phizzychick on: January 07, 2014 02:44:34 PM
I love River Song's TARDIS journal, so I made my own version for jotting down notes and sketches in my bag. It has plain watercolour paper inside so I can sketch ideas on the go, or should I say out on my adventures? Cheesy Now if only my bag were bigger on the inside... Wink

45  Paper Snowmen in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Phizzychick on: November 20, 2013 10:10:05 AM
I've been hoarding ribbon spools for a long time, waiting for a good project to use them. Finally, they're up! Cheesy

I used them for the bases, covered in book pages like the rest of the snowman. I used them for the top hats too, just made them a little taller using card and added a circle for the top.

The eyes and nose are book pages too Smiley

Don't they look like some kind of boy band? Cheesy

46  Little Owl Boy & Bat Girl in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Phizzychick on: August 19, 2013 12:05:27 PM
No not superheroes, two assemblage pieces I've worked on recently Cheesy

Little Owl boy is nesting in his favourite place. The inspiration for him came from the head piece, which I think is part of a door bolt of some kind.

And Bat Girl with her crochet wings, teaspoon ears and fork legs.

See the little fly tucked away in her belly? Smiley

Just waiting for the next piece to inspire an animal/bird/insect now! Cheesy

47  My very first glass beads! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Phizzychick on: August 13, 2013 06:00:31 PM
Craftster has been a large part of my life for the last few years and has definitely encouraged me to try new things and experiment more. There are so many new recipes I've tried and projects I wouldn't have even thought of attempting before I'd seen them on here!

One of the things I've really wanted to try was glass so I was really excited recently to have the opportunity to play with glass and make some glass beads.

It's a pretty basic thing I guess to most glass crafters, but I'm usually playing with paper and scissors, not flames and glass. I was really really excited! Even the green safety goggles they made me wear didn't deter me! Cheesy

So in the spirit of trying new things, here I am making my very first glass beads!

But first, the beads!

A few action shots...

I was going for rustic with them...luckily! Cheesy

I was warned that there might be a chance that some beads might not make the cool down process depending on how successfully they had been made, so I was pleased when all 10 of mine came out okay!

I used different yarns and fibres to string the beads together. I really like the contrast between the hard glass and the soft yarns so I snipped them so the yarns poke out between each bead. And bells, because everything is better with bells! Cheesy

I think my favourites are the spotty ones, but I love them all in their own way...my little glass babies! Cheesy Now I want to try more glass crafts. Thank you, Craftster!

48  Re: Completely Ghastly Edward Gorey Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Phizzychick on: May 11, 2013 12:12:17 PM
Here are the photos of the fabulous package I received from ConTexty. Here's everything altogether...

Fab Gorey-fied 'Grecian urn', Gorey box, and my very own Guest! Grin
Also a wonderful book that I can't wait to do something with, bonus stripey scarf and an amazing collection of ephemera (that I managed to delete the photo of!) including a playing card!! I collect odd playing cards, so this was so exciting to see, especially all the way from Israel.

Here he is my Guest again, up to no good as usual no doubt...

He's perfect!

The wee painted box contains some wonderful painted pegs...

Along with the Gashlycrumb Tinies!

Thank you so much for a wonderful package! Kiss

49  Travelling Theatre/Circus in Completed Projects by Phizzychick on: March 25, 2013 03:26:36 PM
Roll up, roll up, roll up for the show of a lifetime! Cheesy

I wanted to try to capture the essence of an old time circus. The boots (formerly part of a copper kettle handle!) have seen a lot of miles as it has travelled near and far, up hill and down dale to entertain the crowds Wink

Thanks for looking! Smiley

50  Gypsy Decor in Completed Projects by Phizzychick on: March 23, 2013 08:02:03 AM
I don't think these would look out of place in an old gypsy caravan Cheesy

I found these three attached together vertically, and freed them of their shackles to make something of their new lives on their own. Well, kind of. I guess the sun and moon will still want to knock around together Smiley



"The residue of life is short. Live as on a mountain"

I altered this metal mirror similarly too Smiley

Lots of danglies on this one...

Thanks for looking! Smiley
