So, so behind on people's projects, but I've gotta say...
That TARDIS yarn dispenser is amazing!
Lovin' that dream journal! So much patience --- not sure I could do that. Wink
And those Mythbuster hoops!  Cheesy I'm not sure if they will count or not, but I think they're awesome!!

Sooo many amazing projects!! I'm working on a few things, though I can't think of anything to do for an owl!  Huh I tend to obsess over large projects, spending a few days working on nothing else until they're done. I may have to skip the owl badge.  Undecided


also... less craftalong specific and just more me being rubbish with computers... how do you make the links you post have a different text than http://the_web_address_I'm_linking_to.com ?

I think maybe this post about signatures from PinkLeo might help!

Softies can be made of felt, but felties can't be made of fleece.  Wink Cheesy

It's really just comes down to preference; Softies, Plushies, they're all the same, I think felties just came about to give them a sort of sub-category for those cute things made entirely out of felt.

Beautiful!  How did you joint the arms and legs? She poses and stands wonderfully!

Sorry about the late reply! Thanks so very much!! Her head, arms and feet/boots are sculpted on wire which is then wrapped together with more wire then wrapped again in pipe cleaners for body bulk before being 'dressed'.

She's adorable, I love the drink me vial. How on earth did you make it?

I'm not sure if you mean Alice (if so, see above  Cheesy Cheesy) or the drink me vial; the vial is just a tiny little jar I bought on etsy and filled with some iridescent glitter, clear glue and coloured with paint. ^__^

Hope I'm not too late!~

Challenge: Beater
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Alice poseable art doll

I've worked with polymer clay on and off (mostly off  Cheesy) for about two years but have only really made charms and things of that ilk. I decided to try my hand at a pose-able art doll. So many new techniques to try! She is just a touch over 6 inches (not including her crazy hair) and was inspired by Alice in Wonderland - hopefully that's kind of obvious! - in a sort of Marie Antoinette meets Tim Burton style.  Cheesy  I made so, so many mistakes while making her -- err, I mean I learned so much of what not to do on the next one.  Cheesy  She even has her own little drink me vial.

Challenge: Broomstick
Project Name: Nimbus clay charm

More polymer clay!~ This tiny little Nimbus broomstick is roughly the same length as a sewing pin.

And finally,
Challenge: DADA; Defeat a Boggart.  Craft something inspired by one of your greatest fears
Project Name: Clay Dark Mark

I must admit my greatest fear is losing a loved one and I cannot imagine the horror of seeing a dark mark hovering over my home. I probably took this challenge too literally,  Wink but I'm happy with how it turned out. Polymer clay & gold paint.

Hii!~

I mostly make charms from polymer clay, but I decided to try my hand at making a poseable art doll. It was quite the learning curve and not everything went to plan but I'm mostly happy with how she turned out though I wish the paint job on her face turned out better; I am kind of new to painting and I didn't realize colours would dry so much darker than how they appear wet.  Undecided  I also need to hunt down some tiny brushes - tiny details are hard with big brushes, lol~!

She is a little over 6 inches tall, not including her hair. She can move her arms and legs and sit or stand on her own. I also made her a little 'drink me' vial and she apparently stole The Mad Hatter's hat. Wink   She is sort of a cross in style of Marie Antoinette and Tim Burton.  Wink Cheesy









Thanks for looking!~
