1  Steampunk Owl - Gustav Clockopunk in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jannypie on: October 17, 2009 05:04:59 AM

Gustav Clockopunk
(One of my girlfriends called it clockopunk the first time she heard of it)

I <3 steampunk and I <3 owls.

I made him from brown fleece, and gave him a distinguished (to me, anyway!) costume- a pinstriped shirt, cravat, and wool vest. I got to use the word "cravat" in a sentence!

He is named Gustav after a character in the Max Quick series by Mark Jeffries- Book 2 is very steampunk in style. Lots of shiny futuristic gadgets set in historical New York city, complete with top hats.

3  Not-A-New-Me Digital Scrapbook (img heavy) in CHALLENGE 24 ENTRIES by jannypie on: February 03, 2008 07:40:14 AM
Hi everyone! This is my first craft challenge ever and first on Craftster. Joining craft challenges was actually a resolution of mine.  Smiley I found this topic extremely difficult! I couldn't think of any one craft.

This year I got tired of always trying to reinvent myself and make "a new and better me" year after year. SO, my resolution is to get to like the current me  Smiley I wanted to explore my current abilities, challenge myself and see what I can achieve. Not to try and be better, but to just learn to be myself. My entry is a digital scrapbook of my goals, challenges and progress for the year.

All of my digital elements are either handdrawn or digital freebies, from various sites around the internet. I couldn't possibly list them all, but there is some beautiful stuff out there. At the end of the year, as my reward I will have the book printed through Shutterfly as a gift to myself!

Some of the pages I didn't fill in completely, so that I can still work on them as I complete projects. That way, this craft will keep me motivated throughout the year. I am excited already about it! And happy myself with the way it turned out already. I've never used so much color in any craft! They aren't exactly all "matchy matchy"... but I kind of had fun making them all different. Just like my year will be!

Here's a link to my draft book in Shutterfly

And here are the pages themselves

Thank you for looking!

4  My first post! Fall accent pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by jannypie on: August 27, 2006 03:32:00 PM
Hi everyone, I just discovered craftster this summer, and this is my first post. It's a fall accent pillow I made today. The inspiration came from BHG's Holiday Crafts magazine, but I changed it a bit. Hope you like it!

And just for fun, here's a wreath I made last weekend. $12 total for supplies from Michael's.

Hope you like them! I'm hoping to see lots of other fall ideas on here!
