11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Cassette Shirt on: April 03, 2016 04:41:07 PM
About a million years ago, I saw a post of this shirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=345518.0 I've always loved it, but it wasn't until March's destash challenge that I decided to use up a bunch of self mixed paint shades and make my own.

I tried to take the best contrast picture I could. I'm not sure if you can tell, but I've used 8 different colours. One benefit of being plus sized-- more room to do art on a shirt.

12  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Box of Sunshine Round 2 SU-March 28, SO-May 3 on: March 13, 2016 11:53:51 AM

(thanks to Lime Riot for the original sign up, which I basically c&ped)

Depending on where you live, spring hasn't quite sprung yet. If you're craving the warm sunshine and bright days of summer and wanting to brighten another members day with a sunshine bomb, this swap is for you!

In the Box of Sunshine swap, we'll be sending our partners a sunshine inspired package filled with bright and cheery crafted goodness!

Swap Details
Requirements:
1. One medium crafted item that is bright and sunny
2. One small crafted item that is bright and sunny
3. Bright and happy package fillers (OPTIONAL)
4. Posting to the discussion thread or PMing organizers is required once a week!
5. Have fun!!

Crafted Items Info:
When you and your partner open your packages, you should feel warm - not hot chocolate and flannel blanket warm but barefoot toes in hot white sands kind of warm !! Crafted items should be done in sunshiney colors (yellows, oranges, warm beiges...). Items should be aligned with your partners wishes. Here are some ideas!

- Picnic tray decorated with yellow and orange designs
- Pillow cover quilted with yellow fabrics
- Journal cover with an embroidered sunshine
- Stenciled beach towel with a summer inspired saying
- Painting or wall hanging of a sunset
- Yellow fizzy bath bombs and soap set

If you want to fill your sunshine package with yellow candies or yellow craft supplies or other extras, you can indicate so in questionnaire and be partnered with someone else that wants the same. If you'd prefer to just stick with crafted items, you can select that option too.

13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Box of sunshine on: February 14, 2016 04:46:51 PM
I don't know about anyone else, but where I live February is still full of snow, cold, and dark days. I sure could use another box of sunshine. Anyone up for a repeat of this swap?
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Aqua & Silver Shrine on: December 27, 2015 08:02:42 PM
My partner in the 12 days of christmas swap only uses aqua, pink and silver for her decorations. Working in those shades was an interesting constraint.

This started as a cutlery tray, dimensions about 14x24. I added four extra walls by glueing two layers of corrogated cardboard together, covering it in modgepodge and tissue paper, and then hot gluing them into the tray. Behind the reindeer are styrofoam balls painted with about five layers of glitter paint. It came out reeeeally thin, and I wanted a solid look.

15  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Dyed Sock Yarn on: December 27, 2015 07:36:41 PM
I've never dyed anything before, but my twelve days of christmas swap partner had a whole pinterest board of hand dyed yarn, so I thought it was time to give it a try. I used the method where you soak the yarn in vinegar, then mix different shades of food colouring and inject it with a needle-less syringe. I'm not sure if that has an actual name?

This is what I ended up with:

primarily aqua blue, bright green, fuschia and dark purple


The picture of the back side shows some of the variant colours, the lighter blues and greens


I had a bunch of fun with this project. I guess the next step is figuring out how to turn my big oval of yarn into one of those perfectly twisted cylinders you see on etsy.  Smiley
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Prayer Flags on: July 02, 2015 01:10:21 AM
I made this set for Abbeeroad, who had this quote pinned.







By far the hardest panel was the second. I must have watched six tutorials for how to make mini wire hangers. Not to mention I vastly underestimated how much free-form letter making would make cotton pucker. But I had a lot of fun dying the second and third panel. And I like how they turned out, and so does Abbee.

Details of swap:
This swap is not a partner swap. There will be groups of four, so every swapper mails to three people. Swappers will be making either 1 or 2 pendants for each member of their group, which will be assigned basically at random.  

The pendants can be made from any medium: leather, resin, cloth, beads, clay, bottle caps, rocks, glass, scrabble tiles, etc. Just make them awesome! If you sign up for two pendants, make sure you dont send the EXACT same thing. Ex. They can both be scrabble tile pendants, just a different image on each. You don't need to make a fully beaded necklace, this is a pendant swap, but please attach the pendant to a chain or cord or whatever goes around your recipient's neck.

Once the swap is closed I will send out addresses to all participants in your group. But you can start crafting now.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What medium will you be using?
If you had a choice, would you pick gold or silver?
What are your FAVORITE colors?
What is your LEAST favorite color?
Describe your style in 3 words or less(funky, girly, steampunk, etc.):
Any allergies/concerns?
Do you have a pinterest and if so, link please?
Do you want to swap one or two pendants? (two will only occur if at least four swappers want to send two)

Please understand these questions are only a guide. You may not receive your exact favorite color, but hopefully it wont be your least favorite either. I really want this to be flake free, so only commit if you are truly willing to send to the amount of people you sign up for. But if you want to tailor the pendant specifically to each member by stalking posts, pinterest, etc., that is ok too.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
