Some great looking artists as well as cards here! Guess I will throw mine into the mix.

Here is a simple digital one I did of me and one of my babies.  Smiley

383  Grandmother's Sewing Box - A Tribute ATC in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by HSG on: December 28, 2006 05:47:26 PM
This is my first ATC, and it is a tribute to my Grandmother. She passed away November '05 at eh age of 96. I got all her sewing kits, kniiting supplies, etc. She had things from when she was in her 20's that is just like new! But that is how everything she owned was kept.

Anyhow, here is the card made from some of the items. If you see the initials RF on the label tape, that was her maiden initials, and she was married for 51 years. I could go on about all the things in the sewing kits, but instead here is the card.


Comments? Suggestions? Smiley

384  Quilt Mosaic in Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions by HSG on: December 03, 2006 06:14:15 AM
This is to date the most amazing mosaic I have seen. It is the work of Faith Schexnayder, at Flatfork Studio. You can see the video on her site, but here is the finished product.  Shocked

385  DOH! Mosaic Mishap in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: December 03, 2006 12:13:24 AM
Designed a great new mosaic pattern, and decided to put it on wood so it would be lighter than on some other backers. This one took quite a bit of special time to nip and cut for the right shapes and curves.

Well, something bad happened...as it dried the wood warped, and made the mosaic grout crack in the middle.  Sad

So it looks good except the crack in the middle. I can always fill the crack, but I cannot sell it in my shop with such a flaw. Guess this is another one to put into my wall of shame.  Wink

Maybe we could do swaps for irregular pieces from the glass forums?  Smiley

What do you think of the YinYang design, and should I do the design over on a safe surface?

387  Re: Coasters and Trays and Magnets Oh My! (aka Fun with Resin!) - VERY IMG heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: November 27, 2006 07:13:50 PM
Okay, PinkyK you inspired me to try this, and here is my first try. Yet another project to add to my list.  Wink I like how it turned out except...it turned yellowish. Is that because of the type of mold I used? the mold was a plastic top to one of those aluminum pans you use for baking.

Also I was in Dollar Tree today (one my favorite stores), and they have silcone cooking molds, and ice tray molds in various shapes and sizes. Some I got were shaped like lemon wedges, but they had moon, stars, etc.

So here is my test:

So what do you think? If I can get this clear I would like to sell some of these in my shop.
Thank you  Smiley

388  Mucho Mosaics (Warning: Picture Intense) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: November 23, 2006 08:23:24 AM
Been doing mosaics for about 4 or 5 months now, and I am completely obsessed! With each new one I learn something new I did not know before.

I'm using most anything in the pieces that I can figure out how to use. Making pendants is fun, and make great one day projects. My new thing now is experimenting with coloring my grout myself, and adding glitter or other things to make it more part of the piece than just boring grout.

At any given time I have about 3 - 4 projects in various stages. Next week I am going to be trying stained glass techniques, and metal.

Meantime, here are some of the more recent pieces I have finished. ANY comments are completely welcome, and encouraged. Smiley

389  First Polymer Attempt in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by HSG on: October 29, 2006 06:54:36 PM
Here are a couple of beads that were the result of my first time playing with polymer. Please let me know what you think. I did do some canes, but have not had time to do anything with them yet. Smiley

As long as you do not damage the inside portion of the thumbdrive, it will still operate just fine.

As for me I think this is a great idea! I have made one of mine into SpongeBob.
Sponge Bob Thumb Drive Mod

This is a fast fun mod and craft.

Essentials needed:
SpongeBob stuffed keychain (or similar toy)
pair of scissors
seam ripper
needle and thread
thumb drive
Pictured here:

We have the technology we can rebuild him.....
First we need to give SpongeBob a little breathing room in his pants. Don't worry Bob this won't hurt a bit.

He looks to have taken that pretty well.

Next is to open up the seam in the top of his square head. After that is done some of the fiberfill inside will need to be removed to accommodate the thumb drive. Only remove about a quarter size amount.

Push the thumb drive into the top seam, and oput the hole made in SpongeBob's britches. Then you need to stitch back up the top of his head so it looks the same as before.

Now let's see our handy work.

Here is SpongeBob getting his thumb drive on.

And now he is ready to go anywhere.
