1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / You're the other half- Diptychs with my boyfriend on: August 25, 2009 02:54:07 PM
The boy and I are headed off to our first year of college. Unfortunately we're headed to two different colleges. This summer I told him I wanted to try painting with him, he's never painted before and I thought it would be both fun and nice to make a painting with him and use two canvas' so we could each take one. The first one was difficult and didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but he loved it and told me he wanted to do another before the summer was over... a month later- we did another and i love it.

What are your thoughts?
1- in the process

us - almost complete
-all done

2- - with our work

-completed but the glare is there a little
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer means dresses (huge pictures i'm sorry) on: July 26, 2009 01:01:48 PM
 I just got my first macbook so i still have no idea how to compress pictures.. i apologize for them being so big


ahh a little uneven... I'm still trying



Close front

close back

I struggled a little bit on this one with the back... kept changing it and eventually made it too small to really get on and off comfortably so i fixed that but the skirt part of the dress remains a little messed up... i'll fix it eventually maybe tighten it up a little better. The top is way smaller than planned but its still wearable and i can always put a tank top underneath... overall this is my favorite completed project so far Smiley
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / It's time I update my projects(there are a lot) on: May 20, 2009 02:21:54 PM
Fantasy hand watercolor

Now I really don't find painting fun because I don't think I'm great at it at all... but working on this drift wood made me second think a little... Probably my favorite next to the cow painting

Another wood painting that I did as a gift for the sweetest woman in the guidance office- she was so cute; she told my teacher she almost cried.. and then she wrote me a thank you note.

Really easy but sweet project--watercolor spray sunset the completed work was with a desert silhouette

portraits for my boyfriend's aunt of her kids

As my senior final project I am doing portraits of all of my best friends for them before we graduate. The first one i did is a portrait for my friend Trent that he chose from middle school.

Next is my best friend from toddler on up I don't even remember meeting her it's been so long Smiley (noticing when I look a picture, that our noses look a little bigger- I may have to fix that before i give it to her)

Now this is my favorite picture taken at prom this year of me my boyfriend and our best friend mike ( this is going to mike)

So thanks for looking- I'm sorry there are so many pictures... I'm also missing one painting, but it's still at school.
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My first real pastel work on: January 22, 2009 09:31:43 PM
For my art class we had John ,a local artist, come in and help us work with pastels I was pretty proud of myself i took my time on this one i generally rush though works but I know i could have spent more time on it. It's not quite the same but it was my first try and I'm rather proud of myself Smiley
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / can you say moo? on: January 16, 2009 05:22:32 PM
For class we worked on impressionism I did a painting before this one and it didn't turn out quite like i wanted it to and i work fast so i had a lot of extra time to do another painting. I found a picture from last fall in my pictures and I knew it'd be great to do a painting of them. So here's my go at impressionism.
What do you think?

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / my first multi-colored OIL painting!! on: August 16, 2008 04:47:43 PM
Experimenting with colors was extremely difficult and hands down a good experience!
Pleased, but obviously not thrilled about it-it was my first time so I'll give myself time to learn and do better.
thoughts? tips?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Dirndl for my senior pictures on: August 09, 2008 08:27:11 AM
My mom actually agreed that it would be fun to wear a dirndl for my senior pictures. We had gone to Germanfest when we thought the idea up, and since I have German background, and will be taking the language all through middle/highschool we thought it fit. I was so proud of her work, she made it all except for the socks and shoes obviously. She spent less than a week on it, and I felt this needed to be posted to show off how well she did on it.

I know my face looks disgusted in here, there was a spider web that my dress hit.
I may post more details later, and when I get my senior pictures back, we'll see if i can post one of those.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / self-portrait and the boy and I on: July 08, 2008 03:18:38 PM

Happy fouth
My boyfriend, Conor, and I
he is actually smiling

and me- lighting make the shading look a little more funny.

can't say either are my favorite but i need to get back in the swing of drawing again, it's been a little while.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help with finding a matching pattern!!! on: June 19, 2008 03:41:36 PM
I'm interested in making a dress similar to this for homecoming this year. i realize it's a wedding dress, but i plan to change the color up and shorten it to knee high length. I just need help finding a pattern similar to this one. Hopefully someone has run across a pattern and could help me find it. Yes I've skimmed through all the major pattern maker's websites, but i may have skipped over it.  http://www.dressmakingdesign.co.uk/POO/IMGP0731.jpg

Thank you so much!
