51  Featured Artist - 4th Quarter 2010 (Oct/Nov/Dec) in MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS by SevsOnlyGirl on: January 26, 2011 07:49:12 AM
Our Featured Artist for the Fourth Quarter of 2010 is teag!

1 - How long have you been crafting?  What's the first thing you remember crafting?

I don't ever remember not crafting, my first crafting memory is at age four sitting in my grandfather's lazy boy - making a leopard print dog- ashtray holder that sat on the armchair- it was made from an old coat of my grandmother's, a tuna can and beans for stuffing-

2 - What's your favorite media?

hmm that's a tough question. Fabric, polymer clay,reclaimed materials, paints, beads-many of my projects include multiple medias-so I don't think I really have a favorite media-when I am inspired to create something I use whatever it will take to reach my vision for that project-
3 - What inspires you?

My fellow craftsters for one,  provide some of the greatest inspiration there is - and Swaps helped me to come up with some of my favorite craft projects -my polymer clay potion jars were inspired by a swap -almost anything I read, see or hear inspires me- I see creative possibilities everywhere.

4 - Do you have a crafty/creative philosophy?

I don't really have a crafty/creative philosophy, being creative is a way of life for me, it's almost as necessary as breathing- sure I can live without crafting but whenever I take a break from crafting  I feel as if something in my life is missing - crafting, for me  makes sense in my life and keeps me sane

5 - On what other boards can Craftster members find your work posted?

Besides Miscellaneous Topics,I can be found on the polymer clay, Jewelry and Trinkets, Toys, Dolls and Playthings, Occasions and Holidays, Purses, Bags and Wallets and especially the swap boards.

6 - What's your favorite creation that you've posted to Craftster?

My teacup sewing organizer- it took me a long time to work out the details,draft the pattern, and get the construction right - in the end it was so worth it

7 - What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?

Wow that is a tough one-I don't think I can choose just one project - anything made by:
SpookyPooky, loveandasandwich, cackle, rackycoo, Phizzychick, Audio, edelC, ghilie, lovesclutter are always my favorites.

I'm glad that Chloe likes the basket!  The always shirt looks great on you!

I think that I got the better end of the deal with the exchange with PirateColey!  Here goes:

Look at this stinkin' cute packaging and labels!  There are packages from Magical Menagerie, Gladrags Wizardwear, Zonko's, Honeydukes, Madam Malkins and Twilfit & Tattings!

Shirts for Griffin and Katelyn to wear to the movie.  As we were eating lunch I told PC that Griffin wanted a dragon shirt, but I can't do dragons!

Shirt for me for the movie:

I just love Crookshanks and PC had crafted a cat for someone, so I asked if she could make me one.  She did and included Scabbers!  You know it's Scabbers because he's missing a finger. Cheesy

The cutest Ravenclaw purse!

Deathly Hallows necklace (detachable charm) and Ravenclaw charm:

Extras: see the cute tissue paper?  All the bags had handstamped tissue paper!  There's HP glasses, journal, notepad, snitch magnet, valentine, stickers and the pic is missing the wallet - Katelyn has it already. Smiley

The goodies all together:

Fudge Skulls and Peppermint Toads:

Candy Wands and Muggle lemondrops:

Vampire Candy:

Gummy body parts:

Nicole - thanks so much for swapping with me!  Ladies - if you get a chance to swap with PC, jump at it!  Everything is beautiful and lunch was fun!

58  Quarterly Featured Artist: sheepBlue! (July/Aug/Sept) in MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS by SevsOnlyGirl on: September 20, 2010 09:53:53 AM
This Quarter's Featured Artist is sheepBlue!  sheepBlue posts all over Craftster and does a lovely job in everything!

How long have you been crafting?  What's the first thing you remember crafting?

Ive been crafting for as long as I can remember. Both my parents are very creative and raised me to want to find my creative outlets as well. Trying to remember back to the first thing I made, the thing that sticks out is a ceramic bird I made in preschool or kindergarten. It was glazed a beautiful deep blue and I was so proud of it; I think now it sits on my dads computer desk somewhere in pieces. Over the years appendages slowly fell off, but somehow never got lost.

What's your favorite media?

Its so hard to just pick one because I find inspiration in so many different crafts and materials. That being said, I will forever love sculpture and anything that has elements of texture in them, especially if theyre made from recycled or unconventional materials; I am such a tactile girl, I always have my hands all over anything with an interesting texture because it brings another level of connection to a piece of art that really engages your senses in an instinctual kind of way. Lately, I have been playing a lot with textural types of art built off of canvases using polymer clay layered over armatures (most of the time foil) and then painted or layered with papers and other crazy things. I love mixing materials because the textural aspect tends to grow from that.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=359393.0  Whimsy Bird Assembly

What inspires you?

 Oh god, everything, especially anything quirky and unusual. I find that a lot of my work draws inspiration from the people and art around me because I fall so in love with it I want to try and emulate it with my own personal style, and slowly as I work on a project or several in a series it evolves into its own unique thing.

Do you have a crafty/creative philosophy?

I dont intentionally have one, though I suppose if I did it would be to try and experiment with everything, and to not be discouraged if a project doesnt go the way you wanted it to. I have made plenty of things that I didnt deem worthy of posting on craftster just because they were pretty bad, but after trying again and again to create the vision in my head I can usually get closer to my goal and learn a lot in the mean time.

On what other boards can Craftster members find your work posted?
I post a lot on the Needlework and Papercrafting boards as well as sometimes on the More Art, Less Craft board.

More Art, Less Craft - I love triptychs!

Papercrafts - Awesome Altered Puzzle!

Needlecrafts - I love felt!

What's your favorite creation that you've posted to Craftster?

If I had to pick one Id say my Day of the Dead canvas is one of my favorites. I rarely remake something because I get bored after the first time wanting to move onto a different project, but I loved this so much I had to make another for myself. It was made with acrylic paint, puffy paint, glitter glue and sculpey clay for the skull piece. The texture of all the lines framing the skull are fantastic though and I love touching it a lot.


What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?

You are killing me, how can I choose? Lately I have been completely lusting after FoxyBlues artwork because it so beautifully detailed and textural!!! Love it! This piece in particular is my favorite.


Thank you, sheepBlue!

The owls are adorable and the gourd is totally cool!  Great job, ladies!

I received from sarahj2001 last night.  I was absolutely blown away!  She made me a Juliet sweater (I think that's the name of it) and it fits perfectly!  It seriously hangs perfectly, I must have been doing something and not straightened it before I had the picture taken - I've been getting compliments all day!

Thanks so much, Sarah!!

Somehow I forgot to post a pic of the amazing bookmark that Krafty_Karasu stitched for me!  In fact, it is so fabulous that my sister begged to be able to keep it. Cheesy

She figured out the pattern on her own, isn't it beautiful!
