I can't believe I forgot to post this one, as I see them every day.

I'm generally not going to include Whimseybox crafts in my 50 projects for 2014 as I feel they're more just a fun chance to try new techniques, and I usually just follow the instructions, however I tried a few different techniques with these and really enjoy how they turned out, so I'll make an exception.

These ring dishes were made with air dry paper clay. I texturized each one in a different way and painted them with bright gouache.

#11 - Stamps! Most of these were for the hand carved stamp swap, but the browncoat symbol was for the geeky swap.

Hey! Those are mine! Cheesy
At least, for now. My 5yo keeps eyeing off the Toothless shield emblem stamp.

I'm so glad your family is a fan of How To Train Your Dragon - I can't wait for the new movie in June!

I received from SilverMoon last week!
She started with the cute Fin face, but decided to stalk me on Pinterest and sent me a lovely quote, and even made a beautiful watercolour card with it!
Carving all those words took dedication! I'll probably use the stamp on my Calligraphy Guild's card swap this spring.

That crochet bunny is adorable!

Here are the 2 projects I was too tired to post lastnight.

#10 - Wonder Woman decoupage box.
Also for the geeky swap. I had a lot of fun working on this one.



#11 - Stamps! Most of these were for the hand carved stamp swap, but the browncoat symbol was for the geeky swap.



Now that all of my projects have been posted I have to plan some new ones so I can reach my goal Smiley

It's been nearly 2 months since I last posted so I've got a lot of catching up to do!

My most recent project is this Silver Fox mast that I made to wear to the Arcade Fire concert this past week.
It started with a mask form, to which I added the ears. It's covered in white and silver tissue paper cut into little triangles. The close up shows the "fur" detail that the triangles provided.


Next up is this mini Doctor Horrible crafted for the Geeky swap. Made of sculpey.


On the theme of Sculpey, here's a little dragon that I crafted for my Valentine.


I also stitched a Happy Bunny hoop for the geeky swap.


I'll end off this post with a miniature dropcap painting featuring the Strawberry Thief from on of William Morris' designs. This was created during a William Morris page layout design workshop hosted by my calligraphy guild.


I have a few more projects to post when I'm less tired, but then I'll have to start planning new projects.

Happy crafting!

Check out this BEAUTIFUL and detailed stamp that Wulf sent to me.
He combined my themes of cute, animals, and Victorian.
I'll be using this on the next round of letters I write!

Received from elyxandra today:
http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/193887_06Mar14_100_2493.JPG

I couldn't figure out what the circle one on the left was until I stamped it. Then I recognized "It's an eyeball!" Am I right, elyxandra?  The grooves on the hand are so fine they're barely visible on the stamp, but they show up just fine. There's a tiny dent in the rubber (from shipping, probably) on the cuff, which is located just right to read as a button! Cheesy And I especially love the cockroach!

Thanks, elyxandra! Your guess at what I might like was exactly right!  Cheesy

Wulf

I'm so glad you enjoyed the stamps I sent! Any yes, it is an eyeball! feel free to draw some gross veins on if you're feeling like an insomniac that day.

Oh, I almost forgot, kosmicgirl sent me one of her great Steampunk cards too, and this bonus postcard from IKEA. (Why doesn't our IKEA have such cool stuff?)

Cheer up Wulf our Ikea DO have those cards! I picked up that set of a few months back at the one near Hamilton. Take a look - you might get lucky!

Look at these lovely ampersands from Jexxican!
They go well with my collection of letterpress sorts and alphabet stamps.

oh! i betcha it is too! Cheesy didn't even think of that


Haha, yep it's supposed to be a stamp - i should have mentioned that in my note, silly me :p
So glad the wonder woman box arrive intact - I had a lot of fun making it!

So many amazing things made for the swap, I really can't get over it!
That tiny bookshelf is so cute!

Also, loved all of the LOTR themed things, that Wonder Woman apron and I can't believe that tardis box!

Good form everyone!
