8011  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Iron Eyes Cody afghan for Earth Day on: April 17, 2007 10:19:36 AM
This afgan is awesome!!! I'm so hitting This Rocks when I'm done with my gushing...

I loved that commercial as a kid and I can remember how angry I used to get when I'd see people litter  Angry Angry Angry  (it still sends me into tiny fits). I mean, really, how hard is it to find a trash can, or hold onto something until you do? Geez!

Okay, sorry...back to gushing..

It is fantastic, and I love how careful you were with your color selection! I don't think the back looks "icky" at all- I hope that someday I can make something look as neat!

I was sad when I heard that he had died, and so I think your afgahn is not only a great Earth Day tribute, it is a wonderful tribute to Iron Eyes Cody. GREAT JOB!

You could get some cool images and print them on transparencies- either black & white or color images would be cool. Then you could hang them with the jump rings. It'd be pretty inexpensive to do a bunch. It'd be kind of like those window things and lamp shades that people make with slides...
8013  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sunhat Swap CLOSED (send by May 1, 2007) on: April 16, 2007 04:11:28 PM
I was able to make a big dent in mine today. I was hoping to finish today to send out tomorrow, but the latest issue of Craft showed up in the mailbox and I got a little sidetracked  Wink And, I didn't sleep well last night (I had a car appointment this morning and I think I was afraid I'd oversleep and miss it  Roll Eyes ), so I just hit the crafting wall...

If I get up early tomorrow (I'm on vacation and have a habit of sleeping the day away), I should be able to finish up.

My box is all done, and I went to collect a few more supplies to fill it today. It's looking good! Grin

Oh, no! The pressure's on...

And, I bought what I needed (I think I have it all at least) to craft for you (well, your daughter) zenochka!

I'm hoping that I don't have to spend the day at the car place (they said they had a loaner car, but I never got a confirmation on that), because then I can make tomorrow "sunhat day!"  Cheesy

Maybe it will work some magic and the sun will show up at some point in the week...  Wink
8016  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: How can I make an ink pad for alcohol inks? on: April 15, 2007 07:28:36 PM
Whew! Thanks for the added info! I was just trying to find something in the ATC Share a Technique section, but couldn't handle reading through 58 pages of posts  Cheesy

I did a search for ink pad, but didn't find anything to help me out on this (although I did come across some other helpful tips!).

I think I'll give the 1 layer of felt, disposable pads (although I'm wondering if there was something else I could use them for instead of throwing them away...I'll have to play around with them) a shot.

Thanks again!

Okay, now I'm confused...I was thinking that you stacked the little squares (like all of the mattresses from the story of The Princess and the Pea), and applied the inks to the top of the stack, then pressed the stamp onto that to ink it up. Would this work?

But it sounds like you are making something like a felt brush (which helps me better understand what you meant when you said a clothespin "handle"), where you use the edges of the felt to dab the ink onto the surface. Or am I even more confused?
8018  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: How can I make an ink pad for alcohol inks? on: April 15, 2007 08:06:38 AM
On the ATC board there is a "Share a Technique" thread that is really useful. Give it a glance.
I'll have to do that! For some reason, I have this mental block when it comes to ATCs Wink Maybe it's because I'm afraid that I'll get sucked in by them... Cheesy

I've used felt for the inks, regular ones from the fabric store.  I'd cut a sheet into small squares or circles then use clothes pins (the kinds with spring closuring) as handles.

Maimun
Thanks! The felt you mean is not the wool felt- it's the kind that I can buy in squares (and sometimes on a bolt), right?

And, do I need to stack a few squares of felt to make the pad?

Maimun is right about the felt. I checked my techniques page on the ATC board and they recommend that method also. I was told the problem with my cotton pads is that the lint shreds and gets messy- which has happened- but the felt does not. So you might want to give that a try first.
Oooh- I hadn't thought of shredding...good thing I forgot to go to the pharmacy yesterday! And, I didn't think to browse the ATC board for help  Tongue I used the search function before I posted my question and didn't find anything...maybe my search terms were too narrrow... Huh

Thanks again for your help!
