1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Princess Bride Cameo Totes on: October 31, 2013 01:07:20 AM
What better way to show off your fandom but with a cameo themed bag!  I made these bags inspired by Westley and Buttercup from the Princess Bride.  Freezer stenciling on canvas.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Blue Fabric Flower necklace with matching earrings and hair clips on: October 31, 2013 01:03:30 AM
I made this necklace out of fabric from a blue t shirt, and created a set with glass bead earrings and fimo rose hair clips.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fabric Flower Necklace and matching fimo rose bobby pins on: October 31, 2013 12:56:42 AM
I braided some jersey fabric and covered the ends by wrapping with embroidery floss.  I used some pink jersey to make some roses and hot glued them (my first attempt using only sewing was a disaster) to the braided fabric.  I made this one for a swap, but I liked how it came out so I have been making more as gifts.  The hair clips are fink fimo roses attached to a bobby clip.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Princess Bride Cameo on: October 31, 2013 12:49:00 AM
I made this little cameo inspired by the Princess Bride.  I heavily modified the cover art from the movie in photoshop.  It features Westley and Buttercup in the foreground  framed by trees, and a castle in the background.  I then printed the image on photopaper and added it to a cameo setting with glass cabochon.  I put a pin on the back. 

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skeletal Cameo earrings on: September 04, 2013 04:43:42 AM
I crafted a pair of skeletal cameo earrings using black polymer clay.  I painted the skeleton ladies using my trusty citadel paints: Scab red underneath and blood red for a bit of highlighting Smiley 

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I Love You Sound Waves on: August 20, 2013 12:51:53 PM
I made this as a gift for my husband (and as a craft for the nerd games Smiley).  I recorded myself saying "I love you", then used free software to be able to see how the sound waves looked.  I transferred the image to a canvas to make a very personalized piece of wall art! 

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sugar Skull Cameos on: August 20, 2013 12:36:12 PM
I am fairly new to both polymer clay and jewelry making, but I thought I would try making some cameos using silicone molds I bought on Etsy.  They seemed to be missing a little something, so I painted them to somewhat resemble sugar skulls, and even added a hint of glitter to the hair of one Smiley  I have to practice painting on something so tiny, but I am happy with the first try.  Any Advice on what kind of paint to use is appreciated, all I had lying around were citadel paints I use for miniatures!

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / World of Warcraft-themed Baby Items on: April 08, 2013 11:43:39 AM
One of my guild mates from World of Warcraft (also the Godfather of my older daughter) just had a baby, so I thought it was the perfect time to make some Warcraft-themed baby gifts.  The n00b bib I had seen before, but I am pretty sure I made up the /drool bib idea, which makes me feel incredibly clever Tongue  This was my first time using freezer paper as a stencil, and the bibs were definitely a learning experience.  I didn't get the crisp lines that I wanted due to using the wrong tools (ie old exacto knife blade cutting over cardboard)

I was much happier with the "murloc costume" onesie I made, as the lines were a bit cleaner.  I reused the same stencil to make the same design for my daughter as well.  The one thing I did change was that I added an extra layer of paint.  As you can see in the photo, it was a bit thin in spots.  I am definitely planning on using the freezer stencil technique in the future, it was loads of fun!

9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Greetings from Switzerland! on: April 07, 2013 04:40:32 AM
Hello All, I thought it was time to stop being a lurker and introduce myself.  My name is Vanessa, and I'm 32 years old with 2 kids.  I am an American living in Switzerland, but I am moving to Germany in two weeks!  Whew!  I am a veterinary pathologist which keeps me very busy, but in my free time I love crafting and getting creative.  I also do a lot of running and play World of Warcraft.

I have already learned so much from this site, and hope to start posting some of my projects soon.  I guess my specialty would be geek crafts Smiley

Once I am settled in my new home in Germany, I would love to get involved in some craft swaps, since I love surprises Tongue
