1  Re: Altered Wine Cork Ornament Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by KimmyLynne82 on: March 18, 2014 05:08:34 AM
I received my lovely corks from gala_apples yesterday! It was a much needed bright spot, as my Monday started out with my check engine light coming on when I got half way to work, and after a weekend of food poisoning or some other nasty gastrointestinal plague.  Angry


I received three lovely corks! Up first is my absolute favorite of the bunch - I love the vibrant purple and the cool little crown!


Up next we have another steampunky cork - I like this one as it look like she (yes, it's a she) is wearing a little skirt!  Cheesy


And last but certainly not least, this little vintage-inspired beauty. Those sweet little bows just kill me! And the little ribbon trim makes me think of my Ukrainian mother-in-law's little knick-knacks around the house.


This was a super challenging swap for me - despite the small size! I would love to do it again, just to challenge myself! I hope gala_apples receives her package safe and sound - and I hope the corks are up to standards  Wink

2  Mini Canvases - Art Abandonment in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KimmyLynne82 on: November 05, 2013 08:02:49 AM
I recently learned about the Art Abandonment movement (from Craftster peeps, I think...) and decided I wanted to give it a try. I found these mini canvases at Michael's and though I'd see what kind of mess I could make out of them Smiley

I've only left one behind, so far, but I have more in the works. Two ready to go now, just trying to decide when and where! Smiley

Here's the first one...bottle cap for size reference only...


It was left in a package, like so, complete with an email address set up specifically for this little project:


Here is another autumn-inspired painting...this one is on an ATC-sized cardstock.


And this one will go somewhat closer to December...it was inspired by a box of vintage wrapping paper I found (again, bottle cap just for size reference...I don't think someone would appreciate that in their package, unless they were a crafty soul) Smiley


As always, thanks for looking!!

3  First Attempt at Painting! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by KimmyLynne82 on: October 25, 2013 10:48:10 AM
A couple friends and I signed up for a Wine and Canvas painting session - it was so much fun! The painting we selected was a little more challenging for someone who has never picked up a paint brush, but I managed! I am pretty darn happy with how it turned out, except for that tree in the front...it's really bothering me, but I'm afraid if I try to fix it, I'll just end up ruining the painting!

Here are a couple in-progress pics...I think I'm hooked now...




And here is the finished painting! Smiley Thanks for looking!!

I can finally post pics of the spooky little house I received from irid3sc3nt! She ran with my E. A. Poe theme!  Grin



Here's a better angle of that creepy bird!


...and a rather snarky looking skele!


But! Wait! When daylight comes, that creepy bird is GONE!


Thank you so much to irid3sc3nt and coconutbells for making this a fun swap!! Looking forward to making more chunky houses in the future! Smiley

6  Chunky House Addiction in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by KimmyLynne82 on: October 10, 2013 07:12:21 AM
I participated in the Halloween/October Holidays edition of the Chunky House Swap this time around - so much fun!! I think I'm addicted to making them now, so here are the one's I've made so far.

This was made for my friend after she saw the houses I made for the swap - her birthday is coming up, and we're both big fans of E. A. Poe, so I wanted to incorporate that in her house. I called this one "The Oval Portrait" based on one of his short stories.




The back...


This is the house I made for coconutbells in the swap...this was made based off of a Victorian-era ghost story I read online, namely this passage:
Quote
She started and stopped short, for at that moment, a long-drawn shriek, as of someone in peril, the very shriek she had heard before, rung through the castle. Again and again it rose; died down; and rose again.

Edith staggered against the wall; she trembled so she could not stand. But her husband, who should have been there to support her, was gone. At the first sound of the awful cry, he had rushed from the room; and as Edith pressed her hand to her heart, she heard his fast receding steps echoing in the distance.

She was left alone, to meet the coming horror, whatever it might be


That's good old Edith peeking out the window...and I incorporated a great picture of Alexander the Seer - only he knows why Edith is terrified!! MUAAHAHAHAHAAA!!


And here is the house I made for irid3sc3nt - she stated she liked toads, skeletons, crows/ravens, and vintage Halloween...



I loved the picture of the toad I found - he definitely needed a great hat for Halloween. The Skeleton sticker was one I'd been hoarding for a while and decided this was the perfect project Smiley The tree is made from 12g or 14g wire, wrapped in brown floral tape - it makes the perfect bark! The little black crow button is from a vintage lot I bought a while back.

Thanks for looking Smiley

The house...


Some of the details...too cool!


Love the bird in the cage! And the steampunky stuff!


Thanks so much, coconutbells!!
