1  Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 in The Swap Gallery by cmarion3 on: July 20, 2014 06:17:17 AM
I received from Vincentvanbuck an air and fire. My first fire and the air rounds out the air. He says he has an affinity for earth and water...so by chance he got the opposites! I guess these swaps really do challenge us.

Air has all these wonderful details...weather and butterflies and wings and spirals....oh my! Simply love it!

And Fire has a lovely and hot fire lizard. I have little lizards all over the house (plastic or ceramic) though the cats have chewed or broken most of them. Another perfect addition to the puzzle. Again...love it.

2  Fabric Art Journal Pages, texture and fun in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by cmarion3 on: July 19, 2014 04:44:33 AM
I love journal page swaps....especially fabric ones. (recent swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434288.0#axzz37ueSyfAO)

The technique on Maleficent is a variety of reverse applique, layers of fabric, stitched the picture then cut away the top layer to reveal the lower layers. Edges are left raw to fray a bit giving it more texture. The quote was ironed on with fabric fusing.

For Planet Pie, I also used the reverse applique method as well as chenilling, which is a technique of layering little scraps of fabric between two fabric pieces, stitching your pattern, then cutting through all the layers (except the back) and washing and drying to get the most fraying. 

There is a great YouTube by Jamie Malden for chenilling, she calls it slashing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaPsMLE2FQ8

And for madcrafter she got a Carl Sagan quote. I'm a scifi reader, so she could have gotten anything!



Angielou1 received a Maleficent quote. I've always loved the tall austere Maleficent character from Disney's original Sleeping Beauty. Even joined the kids one Halloween when they did Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming and I was Maleficent. I scared young children!

I finally finished mounting my puzzle. We had a piece go missing (fell out of the damaged envie) and my partner sent a replacement piece of art, which I cannot find! So, since I know it will not turn up until I fill the hole with something else, I repurposed an ATC fabric card.

The theme was rainbow and everyone was assigned a color. Only took two rounds and I did a few pieces myself....just cause I like doing them. I really enjoyed what different ideas everyone came up with for this puzzle.

I received my first 4 pieces. Two airs, a water and an earth. I love this theme. I am doing the center pieces of this 12 piece wood puzzle....moon and sun. I'm just getting to those pieces and also painting the frame. Whew!

From Artmomto5 I received earth and air. The earth has sand and lots of polished stones. Love the tactile feel and weight of the piece. The air piece has birds and swirly clouds. It has a wonderful layered look and something shiny underneath. Delightful.



From luvbuggy99 I received water and air. Breathe is so fresh, makes me want to take in that oxygen! And water invites you jump in. As the song goes..."you don't need no bathing suit, just jump, jump jump!"

6  Pennies from Heaven...pass those pennies forward in Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: July 14, 2014 07:17:52 PM
100 things are easy to think of, but hard to imagine in one craft. I recently became the owner of a box of doll arms (impulse bid on eBay that won). I had this wooden purse, a thrift store find, that cried out to become a shrine, but no inspiration. Then I found a penny on the ground and it all burst into fruition.

But I had to find 99 more pennies. I searched my car, the change bowl, the laundry area, the bottom of my purse and came up with 69 pennies. What? Only 69. So I started designing, gluing, thinking of things I could buy that would give me pennies.
Luckily I finally found the big change jar and 31 more pennies joined. Now I am finding pennies everywhere!

Enjoy "Pennies from Heaven" and pass those pennies forward.

Managed to drop a few little birdies around Connecticut. Picture dump! No responses, but I hope they find new homes.

From bluepaisan...I just love her hand drawn cards, so delicately done, detailed and so funny! The theme was humor plus water.

She says the pencil sketch started out with the boy peeing in the dog's mouth...but it morphed into his nose! We all know little boys can't aim. Thank you, I love a good laugh.

I just made a tut for these little birds inspired by alwaysinmyroom! I love the crochet ones, but I am making cat toys for a craft fair and that is taking all my crochet attention. Since I can sew up a storm, I whipped these up yesterday and will start abandoning today. I even created an email and Twitter account for postings and replies. Who knows....one might be found and posted. I'm guessing the return is about what a direct mail campaign results are....pretty low, but fun when one comes in.



Tut is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434563.0#axzz37GUFfhmD
