31  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Crown Card on: February 19, 2008 06:21:26 AM
Yesterday I had a "hard start" craft evening.  I got my craft mojo back when I finished this little card.  Sometimes simple stamping clears the way for creativity to take shape.

32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Alphabet Sampler on: February 18, 2008 11:40:55 AM
I've been crazy in love and wished I joined in the Typography Swap.  Here is a link to the swap gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225855.0

I love lettering and started this project in the spirit of the old needlework samplers.  Mine is done with left over watercolored squares and ink. 


I added Gesso on top of the watercolor paper and so the ink is kind of lumpy, or could just have extra "texture". 
 

33  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / handmade paper becomes puffin card on: February 18, 2008 10:08:12 AM
I made some pretty weird paper a week ago.  I had thought about cutting it up and starting over, however my puffin stamp came to mind and I made this card.


these turned out to be strange colors - with a lint texture.


The card is cute enough.


happy puffin!
34  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper + Fabric Journal cover on: February 17, 2008 05:32:57 PM
I was house sitting during the week and didn't have my normal supplies.  I found felt, glue, beads and origami paper.  I started sewing it all up and made this journal cover.  I'm not sure I really like it - but it's....interesting

35  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / spray adhesive on: January 21, 2008 07:53:34 AM
I bought a pack of Eiffel tower 8 inch die cutouts on sale at a teacher supply store.  The paper isn't really thick enough for my use.  I want to spray adhesive on the paper and then add a cardstock piece behind it.  Next I want the spray adhesive to the otherside and add a heavier type of glitter. 

I've never worked with spray adhesives, but they seem like a good product, especially if you don't want your paper to warp from the glue.  Any reccommendations?
36  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Watercolor Ornament on: January 18, 2008 09:12:41 AM
This jewelry tray was too large for my mom and sister.  They don't wear much jewelry at all...so I turned my pretty watercolor girls into Christmas ornaments, or just little treasures to hang out all year.

I have been toying with watercolor for about 6 six years now.  I have had some success but along the way I have a great deal of practice runs on good expensive watercolor paper.  This year I found a way to reuse that experimentation.  I've been making pendants.

I purchase the trays on line - embossed my papers, used pearl powders, metallic crayons and then sealed everything with this non- toxic liquid glass stuff.

They made great Christmas gifts.  I sold some as well!










38  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / should I return it or keep it. on: January 14, 2008 09:48:11 AM
I broke up with this guy almost two years ago.  When things ended I made him a beautiful accordion book with my favorite poem and lots of sentimental items within.  The book turned out to be the best creation I had ever made.  I've tried to recreate it but my drawings and collage never turn out like the original.  And worse I didn't any take pictures.

Anyway, things did not end badly and we run into each other from time to time.  Recently I felt comfortable asking for the book back to take some pictures.  When he emailed me back he called it "that old note" - and I was already tempted to keep it. 

What should I do.  I want the book.  He is getting married and doesn't need it, read it, understand it or appreciate it.  I'm really good at telling lies.  I want to tell him that I sent it into a magazine like Cloth Paper Scissors and hope he forgets.

This however goes against the meaning and inspiration of the book.  What do you think?

This is the page I made to illustrate a quote from Love Medicine.






40  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / tricky red curtains on: October 01, 2007 08:55:45 AM
Joann's had this amazing sale a few weeks ago and I picked up yards and yards of this red fabric.  I don't really sew but it was easy to hand stitch a hem for the top curtain rod.  But the botton is uneven and I don't have any ideas.

I should say that this was yardage that was already cut from the bolt and I thought I could used for the door.  What should I do?
