Long overdue photos of my wonderful angel package for jessvict!
I've got a great Mondrian-esque shoulder bag, Lovely poly-clay covered pens and Brochures on her area:::





There's still a lovingly decoupaged notebook covered with pictures of flowers and a big-beaded necklace. Unfortunately my mom's the one who kept those so I can't put up pics of those but trust me, they're really nice! My mum was so impressed that she made me take out all these stuff to show off to my cousins and uncles/aunties when they come visit. Thanks a lot for angeling, jessvict, and thanks for the mods for getting me an angel!

2  Re: Spring cami (feat. matryoshka and caffeine molecule!) - art on stained camis in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by delayes_echo on: March 26, 2007 11:24:38 AM
Yup it's the laundry marker used to mark clothing for camping / for students in boarding schools (that's how I discovered the existence of laundry markers). I got mine off ebay - the one stop shopping place!  Grin
Actually maybe normal sharpie might work as well?

Btw, I came across these on the Harajuku lovers (Gwen stefani's clothing line) website. Deja vu? (might be an inspiration - it sure looks like it can be replicated using a marker on a t-shirt):

3  Spring cami (feat. matryoshka and caffeine molecule!) - art on stained camisole in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by delayes_echo on: March 24, 2007 06:06:15 PM
So, I have this long green cami which I really like, but one day, when I washed it with my new black tights, the black colour ran and stained my green cami! What's a craftster to do...
I decided to have fun with it: I bought a laundry marker and drew on the cami in hope of distracting people from the stains (in retrospect when I should have gone with a design that focuses more on the top part, which is stained more).

Front:

Back:


I quite like how the drawing turned out, especially since I managed to weave in my fave things - dandelion, plants, matryoshka/kokeshi, molecules (yes the plant on the right sprouts caffeine molecules, among others). I wish the fabric marker is more 'black' though - not enough contast as it is.

Worn:


Do you think I should draw more stuff on the top part of the cami to distract from the stains there? Or should I just leave it as it is?

Ohh, everybody has received my item just when I've received from everyone. Such perfect timing! Here's the flower crochet purse that I just received:


And here's the pendant from nessagurl which I'm wearing as a brooch (yes I'd posted pics before but not semi-action pic so here goes Smiley ):

Here are pics of the lovely lovely pendant I got from nessagurl (I'd probably find a kilt pin somewhere and attach it to that and wear it as a brooch) as well as a cute valentine pouch also from nessagurl, and the kiss me you fool wall hanging from glittergirl49:

Ooh..am I the first one to receive? I received from Mini and what a wonderful package it is. I adore everything! I'm using the bag several times already. Smiley
There are tons of food: Hello Kitty sweets and Pocky and she even threw in some amazing Swiss cocoa powder and chocolate! There's a very lovely Japanese wallet, a felt bookmark, a little pouch, a pair of chopsticks, and a keychain. All of them are soooo lovely. Thanks so much mini!
