3331  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dios de Los Muertos Swap on: November 05, 2007 03:25:19 PM
Oh and ammasmama, I hope you dont mind me posting a chunk of the pm you sent me, because I thought it was very funny (though obviously not for the chipmunk!). My daughter thought it was hilarious!

i was making a cigar box alter for the skull using some of the other things i sent, but it got attacked... i put it outside overnight for the paint to dry, with the top open, and a chipmunk got stuck in it and clawed holes in one side trying to get out!

Hmm I am not sure I like that thumbnail view of the stuff, but I guess since the images are large it makes them easier to see, but they are worth clicking on as they dont really do ammasmama's work justice.

To answer your questions, yes the magnets are painted and hand drawn as is the pendant and t-shirt, I am sooo glad it fits as it was a stab in the dark as to your size! I am really pleased with how the t-shirt turned out as it was my first attempt at bleach painting.

I simply used a thick bleach and a paintbrush, I didnt realise that there were lots of little splatters until they showed up but I liked them so much that I added more. It was painted free-hand and its rather challenging to paint with bleach as you dont see right away how the lines are coming out, I added in the flowers with fabric paint. I have to say I was really pleased with how it turned out

The fabric for the bag came from a different craft swap which I pieced together in large strips, the skulls are felt and hand sewn. I really enjoyed making those skulls, they are so fast and easy that I have made more.....um...quite a few more in fact!

Oh I am such a plonker! I was hanging out on the other day of the dead swap gallery! Fortunately someone alerted me to the fact before I posted pictures of the amazing stuff that ammasmama sent me.
I got back from London late last night to a tantalising note from the postman telling me that there was a box for me, but I couldnt get it until after work today...it was a long long long day but I got the best craft swap package that I have ever got!

prepare to be very jealous.

This is the whole package, all of the stuff, I was so spoilt, she sent so much! Lucky me

in more detail, the fabulous fabulous bag, my almost 13 year old daughter wanted it, but its all mine!! It is perfect for work, it'll hold all my folders, books etc etc, with some great skull and crossbones pencils and a notebook, in the pockets under the front flap.

 Lined with great pink skull fabric, ammasmama sent me some fabric too, including some of the same lining fabric, I did relent and let my daughter have that (and the great skull pez),

more fabulous fabric, in the background of this pic, is the inside of the red box from the first pic, decorated with felt and an adorable sugar skull. Also a fabulous sugar skull all glitter and sequins

two brilliant frames with skulls and loteria images, and a great purse, it is a wonderful tattoo fabric with some skulls sewn on and a skull on the ribbon on the zip (I love it soooooo much) and fridge magnets, which are proudly adorning my fridge as we speak.

 ammasmama is truly a fabulous crafter and very generous and I feel so so spoilt! Thank you so much!

Its been a long day, and I've just arrived back in the country after a week in London, so getting back late last night to a note from the postman, telling me there was a package, I couldnt get to it until now, long long long day at work.

but OMG, when I opened it, I got the most amazing craft package that I have ever seen from ammasmama. She sent me so much stuff, I needed a bag for work, to carry around all the books pens, etc etc (I'm a college professor) prepare to be very jealous. I need to go and chat with my camera now and will post pics of the truly awesome stuff she sent me

having serious swap anxiety now!

sorry jessvict I didnt answer your question, I generally draw as normal with the water colour pencils and then use a paintbrush and clear water, it 'melts' the pigment on the page and it flows together so it looks like watercolour painting,
