1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / What to do with a new camera, face paint and two boys...? img obese on: June 21, 2014 08:08:19 PM
Paint them up like zombies and go for a walk in the woods! And that is exactly what we did. A few weeks ago we had a school carnival where Eli discovered face painting. He was a clown and fell in love. Then we went to a local crafts store and he found a pack of face paints and I bribed him to be good in the store and I would buy them. He was good. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in Oregon (a somewhat rare occurrence) and I didn't have to work. Eli has been begging me to do zombie paint for a few days and so I bribed him again (I don't really consider what I do , bribery, I like to think of it more as compromising. I get what I want and he gets what he wants, little does he know that even if he didn't let me take his picture I would have painted them and tried my hardest to sneak pix in!). This time I told him that if I painted him like a zombie he would let me take pictures of him (he hates having his picture taken, but loves taking pictures, weird kid, go figure) with my camera I got for my birthday and haven't really used. He agreed and I started painting. His little brother, Asher, wants to do whatever he is doing so he also became a zombie.
After lots of paint and repeated, "mom, more blood, zombies have lots of blood." The boyos were happy with their living dead appearance. I grabbed the camera and we were out the door. This is what we ended up with.

They were very happy with their adventure. Eli kept asking me to take his picture and Asher kept telling me that if bears come he would protect me by eating the bear's brains. Awe....such a sweety! There is a park at one end of the trail and the boyos were a hit with all the other kids. They promised that next time they come, they would bring the paints and I would do them all up like zombies.

I have so many craftster pins in different boards (never thought to create a board just for craftster...duh!) but now I have them all in one place. Well, from now on I will, I don't have the patience to go back through my other boards and move things.
If only pinning something was the same as making it, as of right now I need to live to be about 300 years old to get to all the awesome projects I have found on here.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys! I can't believe this is a featured project!!!! Thanks!!
The pattern for the bat I bought from http://www.etsy.com/shop/5PrickedFinger5 There are so many great patterns. The pattern for the letters I bought a hundred years ago for I site that I can't remember (I know it was an British site because I paid in pounds). The lettering wasn't as hard as it may look, just alternate each stitch with different colors.
Thanks again for all the wonderful comments!

It's a sublime stitching pattern. I have loved all of her patterns for a long time, but have always been too scared to try embroidery. I think I may now be addicted!

I am amazed with the hoops so far this month. I couldn't find any cross stitch patterns that I liked so I thought I would try my hand at embroidery. This is my first attempt so it is pretty basic and only about 3 inches tall, but I'm happy with how it turned out. After I had it in the hoop I thought it would look better as a magnet on my fridge, so I hope it still counts. My intention was to have it in a hoop, but it told me it didn't like that. Wink

I am having a hard time coming up with something for this month's theme, there is so much I love about the summer I can't pick just one thing. I may end up with a mash up of all kinds of random things... Why is this so hard?!?!
