1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make-A-Friend swap on: July 26, 2014 08:41:28 AM
I participated in this last year and really enjoyed it. I would love to participate in another one if someone was to organize one.  I've never organized and have thought about trying it but not sure I'd want to start with such a big swap and the timing isn't right. 
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / altered spoon on: March 01, 2014 08:34:56 PM
My first altered spoon.
Alice in Wonderland theme
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Painted teapot and teacups on: March 01, 2014 08:32:41 PM
mushroom themed teapot and teacups I painted using Sharpie paint pens and Marth Stewart acrylics for ceramics.

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / polymer clay food on: March 01, 2014 08:29:50 PM
I haven't played with polymer clay too much but miniature food fascinates me.
I made some breads, croissants, donuts, and macaroons. My proportions are a bit off but it was fun.

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Coffee-Tea Wall art on: January 19, 2014 09:46:02 AM
I made this for a friend's birthday

It's a 9"14" canvas

I had made this for the Tea Swap and she really liked it so I made the above version for her.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 4"x6" Art Swap or Wall Art Swap on: January 02, 2014 09:52:47 AM
Is there any interest in resuming the 4"x6" art swaps?  I participated in a few in 2012 but haven't seen any posted in a long time.
Here's a link to the last gallery:

Or perhaps a wall art swap?  This one was a lot of fun:
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Steampunk Pear Bird on: October 15, 2013 07:40:10 PM
I wasn't sure if this little guy belonged here or the misc board.
I made him for the assemblage  art swap.   It's my first attempt at 3-D assemblage art.
except for the decorative gears he is made of thrift store finds.  His body is a fake pear,  his wings and feet and tail are made from old utensils. The  nest is a wreath form that I glued a bunch of nails on. Some of the  nails I bent.  If I had a vise I could have bent more nails but I was just using pliers and  my own hand  strength so I was limited.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / River Song's Journal / Shrine on: August 28, 2013 09:16:11 AM
I made this for myself.  I took a plain wooden box that was shaped like a book and made it look like River Song's journal. and when you open it up, it is a Doctor Who shrine.

I painted the exploding Tardis background but the Tardis itself is a 3-D cutout.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Wall Art - Butterfly explosion on: June 10, 2013 11:52:01 AM
I made this yesterday on the spur of the moment.  It was fun to make and not hard at all.
I just dotted various colors (mostly browns and reds) of acrylic on canvas and blended them in and then mod podged on butterflies cut out of cardstock.
The canvas is 18" x 24".

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Wall Art from canvas, paint and scraps of paper on: March 04, 2013 09:44:58 AM
In the recent coffee swap my partner had linked to this wall art on pinterest. 

I really liked the looks of it and I made a version of it for my partner including coffee beans in the final product since it was a coffee swap Smiley

I liked it so much and had so much fun making it I made another version for myself.

The canvases for both projects were 11"x14" (I think).

I put this in the paper gallery even though there was painting involved as I think it is more about the paper than the paint.
Also, if I ever do this again I will not do as the instructions say regarding glue.  The link says just use a dot of elmer's glue in the middle of each leaf and then modge podge over everything.  I think it would be better to brush glue over the whole backside of the leaf or to use double sided tape runners.
