1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / pink-haired worry doll on a white elephant on: August 30, 2009 10:49:01 AM

the doll is one inch, or three cm tall. poseable & can stand up alone. i made her from twisties and embroidery thread scraps.
the elephant was just made from left over felt & embroidery thread scraps, but it was just her size so i included him in the photoshoot.
thank you!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first attempt at embroidery on: August 26, 2009 08:46:45 AM
I never had the slightest interest in embroidery of any sort before (craftster), but looking at the varied & beautiful projects on craftster inspired me to attempt it! it's riddled with mistakes, mostly because I am a lefty and so the directions for stem stitch & outline stitch got me mixed up, heh.

The intials are my mum's; she loves anything I make so I decided to give it to her in spite of all the mistakes.

All the embroidering got me into a sewy mood so I made this:

thank you!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / collages & a painting & a dollhouse (warning: lots of photos) on: August 26, 2009 08:36:54 AM
thanks for looking! (I should have written this at the bottom, but for some reason the scroll bar won't let me scroll)

4  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
"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?

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATCs and copyright on: January 16, 2007 05:22:03 PM
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!!
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Spiders and hearts... painted slip-ons on: January 05, 2007 08:05:00 AM
Actually, it's just one heart, but "spiders and heart" looks dumb.

My little brother asked me to paint him "emo" shoes Roll Eyes.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black and red cat charm... on: November 12, 2006 07:09:17 PM
...from a bottlecap. I think it turned out quite cute considering how easy and simple it was. (I just painted a bottlecap and drew on the cat!)
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / CD Disco Ball (& tips for cutting CDs etc). on: September 01, 2006 08:41:32 AM

You may know some of the below already, but it took me a long time to fish through craftster and various other websites to find this info. It's valuable to me, so I'm posting just in case.  Smiley
*I used an ordinary pair of scissors
*Only "real" CDs work for this project--CDs that you use to burn music on don't work (so you can't use old burned CDs)
*I didn't want to waste money on a styrofoam ball--yeah, I'm cheap--so I used a scrunched up piece of old (but clean) aluminum foil instead. I've never had experience with glueing CD pieces onto styrofoam, but I really liked the foil ball because the glue (I used hot glue) seeped into the cracks and made the CD piece stick better.

This isn't that great, but as I was photographing the disco ball I suddenly wanted to post this as well. It's a bulletin board made from an old picture frame that my mom was going to throw out. I stuck two pieces of corrugated cardboad in the place where the picture should go after covering it with white wallpaper. It works just as well as a cork bulletin board.
9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / x_tanni-inspired "pop shoes" on: September 01, 2006 08:13:04 AM
x_tanni's original POP SHOES (in case you've been living under a rock and haven't seen it yet) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98242.0


Mine are based on a Roy Lichtenstein painting as well. Another from the Kiss series.
It's a little embarassing to post something so blatantly copied, but that's how much I loved the idea. And I wanted to show how inspiring craftster was. Before craftster I would never, EVER have considered painting my own shoes. If you're x_tanni--I hope you don't mind!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bracelets made of woven plastic straws, pop-can tabs on: March 07, 2006 08:21:00 AM


Pretty self-explanatory, I should say.

As for the second bracelet: it's obviously not an original idea (I got the idea from another forum) but all of the pop tab bracelets I'd seen on here were made by weaving a string of some sort in and out of the holes, so I thought this would be "different".

I wish I had an exuse for the picture quality (webcam? cellphone cam? but I took the pictures with a regular digital camera... blame my lack of expertise)
