1  Re: 80's Cartoon Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by grrlfriday on: June 22, 2005 08:48:56 PM
Alrighty.  candysprinkles got my package this week, so I'm going ahead and posting pics.


A hoodie stenciled with the Misfits logo.


A cd full of Jem first two "albums" (Jem and Outrageous).  PS - you can get TONS!!! of Jem/Misfits music from www.jemunlimited.com - it was an invaluable resource for this swap.


Earrings, inspired by the infamous "Showtime Synergy" earrings that Jerrica/Jem wears.


A shrinky-dink brooch of Jerrica (sorry about the blurriness).


Magnets featuring the original box art from the first edition Hologram and Misfit dolls.


A Jem doll - from the research I've done she's apparently "Rock n' Curl Jem" (I apologize for her state of undress).

I have had SO much fun with this swap.  After I picked up candysprinkles' Jem doll at the local thrift shop, I started looking for more.  This has now lead to an obsession!  I never owned Jem dolls as a kid - but I sure do now!

Awesome swap everybody!

Alright, so as promised (albeit late) here is what emerald6 crafted for me - sorry, I don't have a before:



Zeus throwing thunderbolts at screaming/running campers in a forest - it almost made me pee my pants when I opened it.

Thanks SO much emerald6!  You rock grrl!

So smeared.ink has received her package - so I thought it would be a good timet to post everything I made:


Umbrella - you can't see it very well in this shot but there are stars drawn on it.


Black shimmery pencil skirt, with a skull and crossbones stencil.


Record bag, with a record stenciled on it.


Ice Cream Shrinky-Dink earrings (sorry for the fuzzy photo)


Smashing Pumpkins brooch made from microscope slides, with a Bob Masse image inside (Masse is a supercool Canadian artist who has done crazy psychedellic posters for bands from 60s bands to today's bands).  The image is from the Pumpkins' 1996 tour poster - the other pins are from my work.


A pink sparkly belt buckle with a picture of Molly Ringwald from The Breakfast Club.

Here's what I did for Emerald:

BEFORE:


AFTER:


Left Side:


Right Side:


I tried to compliment the existing picture, as well as reflect on the Victorian era.  I used a key cabinet from IKEA, took off the door and painted and embellished it to my heart's content.  The image of the woman on the left side is actually a picture of the artist who painted the original painting.  The typing in the bottom left corner of the box is a definition of the Impressionist movement - which this painting is from.

Emerald sent me an AWESOME picture too!  I'll post before and after's tommorow.

Who's my best friend? ASPIRING is!

Wow, I was pleased to bits when this arrived at my door yesterday (you can ask my Mom, I was sqealing so loudly she thought something bad had happened).  Everything is so awesome, I can't believe it - Thank you SO MUCH Carla.  The assorted Hawskley stuff HAS to be the icing on the cake - especially that shirt which I wore to work today!  Here are some pics:


The whole shebang - postcards and crafting supplies galore!  And some awesome vintage paper thingys from old cigarette packs (an incredibly creative way of dealing with my love of cigarettes)


My Hawksley shirt, complete with my favorite lyrics.


Hawksley stationary - which is going to be uber difficult to part with.


The Hawksley-lovefest continues with magnets!


The AWESOME jewlery

Thanks again aspiring!

10  Heritage Scrapbook - A few layouts in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by grrlfriday on: March 21, 2005 05:12:44 PM
I began heritage scrapbooking last year, so far I have only a few layouts - but I'm proud of them all the same!  Enjoy!



This is a layout that I did to commemorate my Grandparent's journey from Scotland to Canada in the late 1920s.  It doesn't show very well, but I used a thick paper that almost looks like leather to mimic an old desk liner.  As well, I searched online and found images of the two boats that my Grandparents came over on - they are on the right page.



This is a layout I did that features my parents wedding.  They were married in 1970, and I used the bridesmaid's BRIGHT pink gowns as inspiration for the colour scheme.  As well, I re-created their wedding invite (on the left page) and scanned and then printed out their engagement announcement (on the bottom left).



This is a very basic family tree.  I tried to use more candid (or at least casual) photos than formal family pictures.  I've only included pictures of my grandparents, parents and my sister and I - the circular tags that are hanging between the Grandparents and my parents have the names and bithdates of my parents siblings.  I tried to keep it clean and simple.
