Starz-on - I will have to look for that.  I don't remember seeing it before, so I hope I can find it - thanks

Indeed, very cute!  I like the colours you painted it too.

beautiful.  I love the texture and organic movement of it.
5244  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Stitch markers - bling for working my knitting or crochet on: June 27, 2009 11:18:44 AM
I love the stitch markers that I had made a few years ago, but they were made with a 24 guage copper wire.  I am finding, with frequent use, that it is starting to bend and break.  So I made these recently, some for myself, and some to add to a swap package.

The top rings are uncut metal rings/shapes from a package of random metal shapes I had bought for jewelry making.  They seem pretty sturdy.  They have chainmaille mobius balls dangling from some, and encaged facetted glass beads in on others - for when you need to define different areas for knit/crocheted designs.  Unfortunately I ran out of that size of glass beads, so those ones will be given away and I will have to make more for myself in the future.

5245  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / It's Ozzy! on: June 27, 2009 11:05:55 AM
I don't stencil very often.  In fact, I don't remember doing since school.  But I was motivated to make this apron and just finished it today.  It's an Ozzy Osbourned apron for a swap I'm doing, and DH really likes it.  To the point where he said that he would consider wearing an apron if it had Ozzy on it, and suggested I also make one for a friend who has a birthday coming up.  I really enjoyed doing it, and may make a few more in the future.

Here is the original picture, in black and white, and the stencil after I cut it out


Some extra embellishment

After adding a bit of shading with a different shade of black with a bit of shimmer to add some dimension, here it is finished

Here it is in comparison to the original again

BTW - the highlighting is not that stark in reality - the paint is another shade of black/blue with shimmer in it, and the shimmer really caught the flash of the camera.

Holy smokes, how many did you make?Huh?  That is so awesome you have a supplier right down the street, I wish that were the case for me, because I quite like it, and I don't drive.  The supplier I like ships- but not some substances Tongue

I love the colours and packaging, it looks awesome -are you selling or giving away, or keeping for yourself?

Good job!  He's a beauty.

LOL, I'm sitting here thinking, "I hate cutting out stencils with exacto knives".  Especially when they are fresh blades with the oily coating and they slip :C

Did I mention that DH is rather jealous - he saw some of what I was making and thought it was for him Cheesy

Anyways, I have a stencil for one big project ready, and if it holds together, I may make something for DH out of it too.

Two projects done, and a couple of small things done, and some extras picked up when I went to get supplies, since I had to pass through Chinatown - they do have some interesting things there.

I'm a bit afraid of snapping the plastic.  But then again, I can always make more Cheesy

I do have some small jewerly files and one has a point, so I think I will give it a try - thanks.
