21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: All Kinds of Steampunk Swap! Opening at the end of May on: April 12, 2010 07:41:54 AM
I'd be up for a steampunk swap! I've been lightly incorporating steampunk stuffs into my life over the last couple years and could use a boot to the behind to create some wonderful mad creations.
I like a lot of steampunky styles - neo-Victorian, arcanepunk and post apocalyptic. Count me in!

Edit: I also don't mind crafting large pieces. I like the way the point swaps work. That way, we can agree with our partners on the specific sizes but other people can do other sizes, yeah?
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Source for mint tins for pocket shrines on: April 11, 2010 06:36:51 PM
I am curious as to where people acquire the small tins they use to make pocket shrines. I don't really eat mints and I don't want to buy a product just to use the packaging, you know? I am interested in making a bunch of them very soon, perhaps as a group activity project for some spiritual buddies and I'm just wondering if anyone has found a way of gathering a few at a time..?

Edit: I also wanted to add that I have found places to buy brand new blank tins but I would like to re-use something already made. I'm hoping to get suggestions for collecting used tins.

Hahaha is anyone else getting a kick out of the April Fool's Day projects? Condom ballons! Egg carton pasties! I loves it.

I think today would be a perfect day for a ritual for the faeries - they must love April 1st!

It came out quite lovely in the end!
One thing I've learned about sewing from patterns is that you've got to make a practice run first out of cheap-o fabric to figure out where to alter it for the good stuff. Commercial pattern makers run their numbers on imaginary figures that most women don't have, it's ridic!
But your alterations make it hug you in just the right places, I really like the look. Also, good job on such a shiny fabric! That can be tough to work with.
I know you said no beading or lace, but some kind of trim along the neckline would look really lovely and draw attention further up into your face.

This is fun. Bright bold colors.  What brush did you use in Painter?  (I love that program.)

Thanks! I used a ton of different brushes - I'd never used the program before so I wanted to try everything out. It was mostly a couple different oil brushes and a course blender, though. The background was fun, I laid down some blobs of color and then used the water rake and then other blenders.
But yeah, I played a bit with the acrylic brushes too but I think I like the oil best right now Smiley

I suppose this painting came about for a few reasons.
1. I was obviously inspired by the new Alice movie
2. I got a chance to play with Painter 11, which I overall prefer to Photoshop for this sort of thing.
3. I have to read 25ish books for one of my classes but I can listen to them on CD if I want. Gives me the chance to do homework AND do something else at the same time. I choose painting. BTW, I was listening to The Book Thief by Markus Zusak while painting this, I don't think it influenced it much though.

Anyway, here she is:

Went to the stuff-selling store to get more things necessary for the completion of my super-secret swap goods. Last of my mid-term crap is due Thursday so I should be able to get everything all finished this weekend!
It sucks going along all slowly watching everyone else finish faster but it does give me loads of time for testing and brainstorming. It makes me sad to see all the pretties in their unfinished state staring at me while I write papers but I am excited to have a few days to devote myself completely to crafting Smiley
