21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Cross-Section of a Cloud on: April 26, 2007 08:48:57 PM
Oh. Are Threadless people mean? Sad
I love it by the way.


And also. This reminds me SO much of a children's book that I LOVE, called Cloud Nine. It's a wordless picture book, and the concept is DIFFERENT from yours but similar. (Different enough that no one will accuse you of copying or whatever, but similar enough to be cool.) You should check it out!

The backpacks are f--king adorable. So much better than the plastic ninja turtles backpacks or Disney-theme backpacks you see at WalMart!

And the back of your nephew's heads are so cuuute! Cheesy

24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Four new ATCs and a question on: February 27, 2007 07:53:39 AM
Here are my four latest ATCs:

From top left, clockwise, they are called
"Tyger"
"Same Love Other Way"
"Four-Leaf Clover She Found Something More Than Good Luck"
"Dream Engine"

Here's a link so you can see them better:

Here is my question:

 As you can see, the cards (due to the watery glue I used) aren't flat. They curve. Will ironing them flatten them? I tried gluing them to a thicker piece of (straight, flat) paper but because they were so...bendy... they came unglued. Do you have any tips?

Thanks!

You rock! I'm totally going to try that out. Cheesy

Everything everyone has said has helped at least a little bit.

Even simply knowing the different names, fionahamstern, really helps when googling, so thank you Smiley

According to nahuiollin.com, the designers there use Mexican paper/basket weaving techniques... I wish I could go to Mexico and learn!

Here's a page from Google Answers... nothing concrete, but there are a bunch of helpful links within the link that you could check out...
http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=700667

Also, I'm sure it is possible to make the purses by sewing, but I also believe you can make them without any thread, with 100% weaving only. I'll figure it out if it kills me!
28  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Re: ATCs and copyright on: January 17, 2007 02:33:54 AM
Whew! Thanks everyone... and ikillbarbies for your research. And the postcards aren't PICTURES of the paintings, they're prints. (I don't exactly know the difference, but I think it means they're mini replicas --scanned? Basically that means the photographer doesn't matter.)

I think I'll just use the pictures if need arise... because I write letters to my friends all the time, and decorate my letters with scraps from cut up postcards. In a sense, the ATCs are like my "letters".

As for Disney... I hate Mickey Mouse anyway, so pooh to them.
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: 36 Cent Penny Necklace on: January 17, 2007 02:28:00 AM
Pennies made after 1982 (or 3?) are mostly zinc, not copper. They do have a copper coating, but... okay, that's the extent of my knowledge. Sorry. Smiley

I LOVE the necklace. It looks kind of Egypt-y... or Greek-ish? sort of. Or like something you'd find in an old tomb. Anyway, it's gorgeous and I'll definitely have to check out your Etsy!

And I love the name... 36-cent penny necklace.

How did you drill the holes? I've been trying to drill holes in dice (plastic) and other things and it's so difficult... I'd love to learn how to drill holes in coins..Smiley

1. About the copyright issue... I have all these gorgeous postcards my mom collected during the 80s, and thought it would be great to make ATCs with. But then I thought about the copyright issue. I mean, some of the postcards feature the word of artists like Van Gogh, and Chagall... I know they're long dead, but even so... would it be unethical/wrong to use images of their paintings in my ATCs? Would I have to credit their work? I'm a little confused about whether it's okay to use others' images... I remember someone made these cool Dame Darcy ATCs a while back... I guess that's okay since the ATC theme was Dame Darcy's work. But even if I made an ATC that wasn't themed "Van Gogh", would it be acceptable to use pieces of Van Gogh's work? Thank you!! (Sorry about the length Undecided)

I'm positive there is a link that explains all this... but for some reason I can't find it!!
