101  Haunted Dollhouse in Halloween Decor and Parties by not2old4glitter on: October 08, 2005 02:01:21 PM
I found this wooden dollhouse in the street a few years ago and made it over for halloween. It was really dirty and painted blue and yellow, so I just cleaned it up and painted it with washes of black and grey. (and some bat stickers on the roof)  I also used this fake stone texture paint on the columns. Then I make a halloween display with some of my monster action figures. I put up a sheet of translucent vellum behind the windows and then put a votive candle behind that so it looks like light is coming out the windows.

102  1:6 scale dollhouse (barbie scale) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by not2old4glitter on: October 08, 2005 01:16:20 PM

this is a one-room dollhouse I made for a friend many years ago. This is the only picture i took of it before I gave ti away. It's to the scale of barbies and other 11.5" fashion dolls. It's really a glorified diorama, it was just a cardboard box. I used wallpaper scraps and carpet scraps, the window is a calender picture of a landscape with stained balsawood frame around it and muillions. The fireplace is just faux-painted cardboard and so is the bookshelf. (real twigs in the fireplace though) The sofa is just scraps of foam covered in fabric and I made the coffee table from balsawood. You can't see but on the coffee table is a fruit bowl, all the fruit and the bowl I made with fimo clay and painted it. The artwork is just pictures cut from magazines and glued to a cardboard frame which I painted gold. Some of the accessories are purchased like the little globe and the basket of flowers on the bookshelf. Mostly everything else was handmade.

104  cave art wall stencils in Stenciling: Completed Projects by not2old4glitter on: October 08, 2005 12:37:53 PM

I decorated one wall of my sewing room/office inspired by cave art. First I sponge painted the wall in yellow, tan and cream to get a stone-ey look, then I stenciled animals and designs to look like cave art. All using earthtone acrylic paints like grey, rust, etc.  I made my own stencils after looking at some library books on Lascaux and Native American petroglyphs and Australian Abrogininal art, etc. I  mixed designs from different cultures and periods, just whatever looked beautiful to me. I need to take a picture of the bull I did, it's like the famous bull from Lascaux, it's not in this picture. I also reused the smaller stencils to do a T shirt for an ex-bf, it was sort of a greyish-tan pigment dyed t shirt so it looked sort of stone-like already.
There used to be a bar in San Francisco called Lascaux which had cafe art on the walls, it was really cool and that was my inspiration. It's closed now though. or turned into something else.

105  a bunch of Knifty Knitter hats (image heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by not2old4glitter on: October 08, 2005 12:19:19 PM
Hi, new member here. I have only been knitting for about a year and all I make are hats and scarves so far. I can knit with regular needles but I am in love with the knifty knitter for making hats. Since there's not much variety in the stitches, I try to make them special by my yarn choices and combinations. Here are some of the ones I have made:

teal and grey velour hat-Lion Chenille Sensations in Geneva, which is black, grey and teal varigated. The cuff area also has some Paton's Divine in Night Sky. I gave this as a gift.

purple hat and scarf- Hat made with knifty knitter loom, scarf made with regular knitting needles. I used Bernat soft boucle in mauve shades and Lion moonlight mohair in purple mountains. The hat also has some TLC Amore in the blue/purple variegated color but it's not in the scarf. I kept this set because I love purple fuzzy and sparkly things!

silver and grey hat-  a bunch of different yarns including: Paton's Cha Cha in grey/black, Artfibers Diva in silver, Paton's Brilliant in black, Lion Mystic Mohair in grey/silver. I think I am keeping this because I wear so much black and grey it will go with 90% of my clothes.

green fuzzy hat-Bernat Bling Bling in Spotlight Sage. This is pretty but kind of too pastel for me so I will probably give this away for xmas.

blue hat and scarf- Both made with knifty knitter loom. Hat is Bernat soft boucle in blue shades, Bernat Solo in water, and Paton's Brilliant in light blue. Scarf is Bernat soft boucle in blue shades, Lion Mystic Mohair in Glacier Bay, and stripe is Bernat soft boucle in mauve shades. Scarf is made on the smallest circle loom but only using half of it, so it's not a tube, it is flat. These will also be gifts for some unsuspecting victim.

fuzzy glitter hat- Bernat Disco in boogie blue. It's so shaggy it looks like a wig when you wear it!

fuzzy zebra scarf- a birthday present for my friend who loves black and white anything. using Paton's Allure in Ebony and Platinum. Scarf is made on the smallest circle loom but only using half of it, so it's not a tube, it is flat.

black and red hat-cuff is Moda Dea Zing in Midnight, red stripe is TLC Amore in Red Velvet, upper part is Paton's Divine in Night Sky

106  my first picture post- 5 beaded chokers in Beads: Completed Projects by not2old4glitter on: October 08, 2005 11:54:30 AM
Hi, I  just joined craftster last week and finally have time to post some pics.
Here are some chokers I have been making lately, they are really simple and easy but usually when I get dressed I always reach for the simple, minimalist and monochromatic pieces. Whenever I make something too elaborate I never wear it.
this one I just wanted to feature the square beads with the silver foil because they are so sparkly, I kept this one.

there was one square bead left over (they came 4 to a pack, and I prefer to use odd numbers) so I made this and gave it as a gift

this was made to feature the mother of pearl oval bead, the picture doesn't show the beautiful colors on it unfortunately. I  gave this one away as a gift.

These crackled glass discs were cheap but I love the way they sparkled.  I also gave this one away as a gift.

This is the kind of thing I will wear alot, really simple, comfortable and versatile. I wear black alot so this goes with my wardrobe but has just enough shine.
