1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Go fish for ART cards on: August 03, 2008 01:29:41 PM
So, I have two decks of these Go Fish for ART cards, as seen here:


I have the renaissance one and the Van Gogh one. I think I should make jewelry, but I'd really like some more suggestions. Ideas?
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciling on School Supplies on: August 27, 2007 02:13:11 PM
I leave for college in a week, but all of my friends have already left. As a result, I am sitting around and wicked bored. So, I decided to take some cool evolutionary sketches of animal fetuses by Earst Haeckel.

My first attempt was with freezer paper. Note: Do not attempt to iron a notebook. It doesn't really work and you'll ruin it. The stencil turned out great, but now the notebook is all bubbley and kinda unusable.

Second and best attempt. It's a chicken fetus!

Third attempt was bad- it was a turtle fetus. I wiped it off and started over.

My second attempt at the piggy fetus:

It doesn't really look like a pig, but it's cute.

I like them, and am looking forward to using them.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Origami Paper and a Dream (img hvy) on: July 10, 2007 08:07:32 AM
I'm so glad these are finally done!
The long ones are made with origami paper and will be made into pins- I haven't put the backs on yet.

My fave:

The cards are my favorite, they'll also be pins. I'm saving the colored "Joker" for myself.

The little squares will be magnets/pins. I used origami paper, but for a couple I used to Japanese instructions that came with the paper.

The circular bits are going to be pendants- I dremel'd holes in them, I just need to attach jump rings and the chain.

I'm so happy with how they all came out!
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 100 Little Yellow Duckies on: June 26, 2007 10:36:01 AM
Alright, so my town has this thing every year called "The Rubber Ducky Race." It's a fund raising event where you buy a duck and let it drift its way to the other side of a pond. If your duck is first, you get a prize, etc. Well, my friends and I found about a hundred used rubber duckies near the garbage at our high school. (All neatly bagged up!) We're techies in the theater department, so we stashed them with our other props. Now it's summer, but I could get to them if I wanted. I keep thinking there is something awesome we should be doing with them, but I don't know what. Thoughts? Feelings? Suggestions? Thanks!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My Personal Pint-Sized Psychoanalyst! on: January 04, 2007 06:23:01 PM
Guys are so very hard to buy for. So i decided not to! For Christmas this year, I made my boyfriend a Tiny Carl Jung Doll!! He's made entirely of felt.

Up yours, Freud

The original Tiny Carl Jung can be seen here: http://www.dresdencodak.com/cartoons/dc_026.htm, he is a character in a web comic my boyfriend and I love. 
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Robots, Gnomes, and Marie Curie on: September 24, 2006 05:33:24 AM
I made these the other night. All of the stencils are from stencilry, except for the text under Marie Curie. I got the t-shirts from a newly discovered American Apparel store, they're really good for finding plain shirts in lots of colors.

Robot:(Sorry, he's hard to see)


Marie Curie!!

Yes, Marie Curie said that, i love it!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / There's a skeleton on my bed! on: September 01, 2006 10:59:31 PM
Alright, so he's harmless. I got these plain black binders for school, and this is what happens when you're really pissed off at ten thirty on a Friday night. Well, it's either this or going out and killing a man with your bare hands. So decoupage it is.

Really, I just took an old poster, (no idea how old, but old) cut it up, and Mod Podge'd it onto my binders.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / T-shirt-> McSkirtyskirt on: August 26, 2006 12:28:38 PM
Alright, I know this has been done, but I can't find a tutorial for it. I have a large t-shirt that I'd like to turn into a skirt. I'm an uber begginger sewer, and I could really use some help.  Smiley
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Grendel! on: June 28, 2006 09:55:06 AM
So I got this assignment for Brit Lit to make a Grendel, the monster from the epic poem, Beowulf. Knowing that I couldn't draw or paint, I decided to sew somthing. It's my first attempt in a stuffed animal.

Cute, isn't he?
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Recycling is good on: June 28, 2006 09:41:33 AM
I made this for a friend's birthday. She certainly liked it, and I'm pretty proud of it, too. It's my third stenciling attempt, my second with freezer paper.

Man do I love freezer paper.
