1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / blanket help on: December 16, 2008 01:30:53 PM
for my family for christmas I am making blankets for each of them. I want to do something to personalize each of them for the people but I cant really think of much to do to them besides embroider something onto them. Any other ideas?

* they are being made out of felt like material for my mom, my dad, and my two sisters.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / beginning photography on: February 20, 2007 09:45:35 PM
I have always been very interested in photography so I decided to take photography 101 this semester and I absolutely love it! I never knew that photography could be THIS FUN! I think my favorite thing is developing prints because it is such an amazing process!

Without further ado- here is my first set of prints (from first to last to show progression- because honestly, my first prints werent good at all really)

printmaking machinery


flowers


under a table


more print making machinery


a tree

fire hyrandt (my favorite!)


thanks for looking~

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / paper mache mushrooms on: February 22, 2006 05:21:43 PM
i was at set building today for my school's musical Peter Pan, and we were paper macheing mushrooms. We are using boxes as a general frame for the base and are really stuck on what to use for the top part. We were going to use trashcan lids like they did for the mushrooms onstage but you cant buy trashcanlids without the trashcan and we dont want to waste the trash can, plus everyone who is willing to let us use their lids has already donated them to the actual set itself (mushrooms are decorating the lobby) We cant figure out how to get the chicken wire to make a semi believable dome top to the mushroom. I knw that if I could just get on craftster,you guys would be able to help me! Any suggestions? The thing is, we only have a week to get the mushrooms mached, painted, and placed before the show goes up.... so any help would be super!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Summer Purse has come early! now with tutorial! on: January 28, 2006 09:42:41 AM
Alright, so its not summer yet but I hate this time of year when it gets all dreary and whatnot, so I needed something to cheer me up!!!! I really liked Kate Hudson's bag in Skeleton key because it was big (and I need big to carry around something to craft, and a book)

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Baby feet- drawing and painting on: January 19, 2006 12:16:01 PM
Another drawing of my cousin, yet not the face like my previous posts... its his feet...



my art teacher loved it so much, she entered it into an art contest (didnt win, but oh well) and told me she would like it if I did a painting of it... so I did!

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Lobby deocrating? on: January 17, 2006 09:56:11 AM
I am the front of house manager for my High School's production of Peter Pan. One of my duties is to decorate the main lobby of the auditorium to give the 'feel' of Neverland. It cant be TOO busy, and we dont have a LOT of space to work with, but I was wondering if anyone had some ideas?
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / watermarking your images? on: January 10, 2006 01:12:38 PM
I am an aspiring artist, as I create more works of art, I like to put them on websites and get feeback on them and such, but I hate the idea of someone taking my artwork's pictures and saying  'ooo look what I did!' kind of thing... so do any of you have any tips or ideas on how to watermark the pictures I took? Like is there a special program you use or can you do it with any photo editing software?

Thank you~!

Hilary

Ok, these pictures arent of the best quality, they were taken with my digital camera, but the sunset just took my breath away so I figured I would try to capture some of it's beauty.
