1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / im no pablo picasso, on: January 06, 2007 09:44:16 PM
but today instead of sleeping all day like the original plan, i decided to break in my new watercolor-book! with the thick paper, ya know?

at first i was looking through my old muppet babies coloring book to color with my also-new crayons, when i stumbled upon a picture of skeeter with a big blank computer in front of him!
my first thought was, 'hahahah i should draw myspace on the screen.'

then suddenly the idea dawned upon me to make it 'new age' themed, inspired by two things:
MC Lars's song 'igeneration'. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=2919727
thats his space, even though 'igeneration' isnt on there hahahah.
those are the lyrics.
i was also inspired by TIME magazine awarding all of us person of the year :] in their article they mentioned you tube and such.

sooo i made this!
i used i think oil paints? magazines, scissors, and my printer.

sorry for the lame phone pictures by the way, my cameras dead. >:[

full shot. glare, sorry :/ theres a ps3, ipod, sidekick, and other misc. new inventions of our time :]

skeeters got a lot going on, google, you tube, yahoo, itunes, aim, myspace... what a busy kid!

heres the 'IGENERATION' upclose, i guess thats what i titled it hahahah. and theres my bathroom floor.

heres some of the books on his walls, a few '_____ for dummies' books, harry potter :], and a few sparknotes! books. it wasnt until after that i realized sparknotes might only be online, and not in print, but hahah oh well.

one of the books at the bottom isnt colored in yet, i think ill make it the TIME magazine 'person of the year' issue, as a tribute :]

oh! and the papers coming out of the printer say 'my report on the civil war that i downloaded off of wikipedia', which is making fun of all the stupid kids in my history class that all plagiarize off of wikipedia... -_-

hot damn, sorry this is so long! once i get started talking its hard to stop. n_n. any comments would be cute, i just did this for fun, so yah.

i make collages religiously though :]

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / nono, mousey! on: March 26, 2006 11:01:22 AM
so last night i was trying to sleep and i heard a few squeaks and mouse sounds, and i knew that my suspicsions were true.
id thot there was a mousey in my room for a while, but now im sure. my kitties were going crazy!
im sure theyll catch it soon, but untill then i have a problem.
a while back i got a 7 lb bag of fabric for $4 at a thrift store. theres A LOT of it.
 i cleaned my room and i put it all in a big pile overflowing out of a laundry basket.
the thing is, is that im affraid the mousey is gonna make a little burrow in it, since its in a corner of my room i dont usually go.

where do you guys keep your fabric?
where do you think i could put it that it wouldnt get to?

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / since dr suess is my hero [img heavy?] on: March 09, 2006 08:10:26 PM
yah so yesterday when surfing stencilry i found a dr suess stencil and fell in love
so i knew i must make a purse

the needle broke twice and i didnt now whether i could heat the silk screening ink onto felt without burning something and it kinda smlled like burning plastic,
so there were some hardships but i got through it and came out happy:

(me modelin it)

(doorknob is an aspiering model)

(close up of stencil)

(the lining, which is kinda hard to see)

(close up of lining, kinda hard to see sorryyy)

over all w00t.
i got all the fabric in a big 4 lb bag from the thrift store,
except for the pink felt which ive had since i was a littlun.
it was for these cloth-paper dolls i had
but i digress.

anyway, i know its simple, but im happy
and any constructive criticism and compliment is welcome : )

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / one persons unopened craft kit is another persons treasure? on: February 28, 2006 06:34:44 PM
heyyy all.
i was saw this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82363.0;topicseen
and i was thinking, wouldnt it be cool to have a swap where you take a crafting kit or tool or tools that you know your not gonna use, and swap them with someone else?
im not quite sure how we would do this, just an idea of course,
but i know that i would love some circular knitting needles.
i may not be able to participate if it ends up happening,
but would anyone else who wants something they cant afford and has something they dont need interested?

once again, just an idea. maybe someone will love the idea and want to organize it. : D?
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Question about islands & bridges on: January 13, 2006 06:58:01 PM
seriously, point and laugh.
i feel really stupid i cant figure this out
and im pretty sure this is where a topic like this goes
but i recently did my first stencil. it was a fall out boy teeshirt for my friend
and i liked the way it turned out a lot.
on the front it had the sky line of a city, above it it said, 'you were the last good thing'
then under it, 'about this part of town'
and on the back a fall out boy stencil i found
but heres the stupid part
the letters that have little... holes i guess you could call them
the letters such as 'e', 'o' 'g' 'a' 'p' 'b' and so on
the little circley things?
they were all filled in.

grr i feel like im making no sense.

uhmm... okee. for the word 'good', all the loopey circles were filled in with ink because i didnt know how to cut out the stencil and keep the little things in the middle.

goshhh i make no sense.

anyway, thank god my friend liked it
but i dont wanna keep doing this.

how do you stencil words and not fill in the letters?

ANY advice.... or signs that i made even a smidge of sense would be nice.

thank you. <3
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / ashley olsen waves <3 help please! on: October 30, 2005 05:57:47 PM
i was flipping through an old issue of elle girl and i found a page about lace and great ways to wear it, and they showed a picture of ashley olsen as an example.
[i couldnt find the exact pic, but heres one close]:

and i just fell in LOVE with her hair! that hairstyles what i really want.

does anyone know how to get waves like these? any advice is great [unless its to give up, 'i cant have that hair' Cheesy]

heres the problem: i have really curly hair. i flat iron it, and ive tried products that make naturally straight hair wavy like this, but they just make my hair curly again and it also gets all icky and sticky.

so my conclusion is that i need to use something that includes heat, i have a curling iron [thati do not know how to use and when my mom helps me it never turns out like above, it always turns out like big fake ribbons] any tips on how to make waves with the curling iron? i could also use my flat iron or something if necessary. my hairs about shoulder length maybe a little longer and i have bangs identicle to hers, and its layered.

oh, and any suggestion by tomorow [tomorows a big day for me] would be great.

sorry this was a lot to read and a lot to ask, but ANY advice ANYONE has to give at ALL is apreciated.
