hey everyone, yesterday was my 21st birthday so for a meal out with friends i made elderflower and golden syrup cake (deliciousssssss) which is vegan, but then i decorated it with buttercream icing, which sadly i didn't use soy butter for since we didn't have any at home and i didn't have time to run out and buy any! but the cake is vegan... anyway, onto the picture
if there is a better forum for this post then do feel free to move it.
it's one of my best friend's 21st birthday today and she adores ducks. well i decided to make her a duck mobile, only it turned out that the ducks are more generic bird-like. oh well, i still find them cute, she'll understand. in fact, i secretly want to keep it and hang it from my wardrobe doorhandle, but shhhh.
here it is laid out on my bed
all materials are recycled, and mainly from freecycle woop i love freecycle!
hey everyone, please help me, i stencilled some piano keys onto my buddy's shorts but stupidly used oil paint instead of acrylic and it hasn't dried yet (it's been a little over 24 hours already). how long should it take? should i try using a hairdryer? i'm such a dodo!!! damn damn damn
please say hello to the last dinosaur in existence. he is a little lonely but has two birds friends for company
i made him for The Last Dinosaur, a uk band www.myspace.com/thelastdinosauruk do drop them a line if you feel like it, i heavily recommend their music. and if you say "ruthie tuesday told me about you guys" then you would be ANGELS. hehe.
hey everyone. my boyfriend, Cedric Charleuf, is an artist out here in Paris, and i love this painting so much that i had to show you all. sadly my camera is a bit ancient so the pictures don't really do it justice but you do get the general gist of the colours/richness/sadness of the work. right, enough waffling. i'd love to hear your thoughts ruthie tuesday
a recent move to paris ( ! ) has meant that i haven't been crafting much lately, it's all been a bit hectic. however i have been getting off my bum in the past few weeks because of christmas!!
firstly here are some owly gloves that i made for myself since it's so cold here. the finger parts look funny and wavy when they are not on my hands! i love them so very much.
on a recent trip home i showed them to my mum, who adored them too, and requested some ruthietuesday gloves for herself. being a classy lady i got some classier limey green gloves for her, turquoise embroidery thread and bright pink swarovski beads - sadly the colours are quite washed out in these pictures, i'm not a technolowizard, so you'll just have to imagine the prettyness : )
(i've moved this from another thread, was in the wrong place before&i was told to put it here, sorry)
hey there everyone, I am involvd in trying to decorate Valefest [http://www.myspace.com/festivale] which is a student run one-day festival (students from the University of Birmingham, England), now in its third year, which givs 100% of the money it raises to charity - this year we have chosen ActionAid and a grassroots charity which will help out in Darfur (maybe KidsforKids but we aren't sure yet). The festival will have 4 different music stages but it isn't purely musically orientated, there will be lots of stalls, societies, workshops (for instance African drumming) etc etc.
Anywayyy, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a lot of material donated to us, the Decorations Committee. We need to make flags, giant cushions and beanbags, decorate the fence by any means possible, decorate our stages/tents. The ethos of the festival is to be as green as possible, so we want to reuse and recycle materials, rather than the fabric being thrown out and ending up in a landfill otherwise.
