1  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - October 2011 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by RosyPosy on: November 13, 2011 08:06:22 PM
I got my ATC from Jillybeans awhile ago, but craftster wasn't letting me upload pictures and then my internet was down. BUT I finally got it working!


She chose my mythical creatures theme and made this adorable manticore (Scorpion tail, lion body, wings, and a human face). It's watercolor.

I also got some goodies along with a very nice Halloween card.

Thank you so much Jillybeans! This was my first received ATC and just adorable. I think it's the face lol. Cheesy

Left is a size H, right is a size I. It's slightly better. Idk. I posted in the thread, but I don't think that user has been on for a while. We'll see lol.

I was thinking the same thing, but the problem would be when I came to do the body. I actually did attempt to make the body several months ago but it was WAY to short so I frogged it. I've only ever made one other ami, an amineko thing. And I had the same problem. I went up a hook size and although it was long enough, there are visible holes. So Idk.

And it's Super Saver worsted weight yarn. I don't have the label anymore, but I'm 90% sure the suggested hook size is I. I think I'm just going to try again in a bigger hook. I'll post a pic of my H-sized ear so you can see.

EDIT:

it's not too horribly off, but just enough to bother me lol.

@slothmuffin- I'm using good ol' Super Saver, actually. I thought it wouldn't come out right, but the body is fine. I'm just having some problems with the comb and beak because I can't find any thinner yarn.

5  Pop art altered book. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by RosyPosy on: January 09, 2010 02:35:25 PM
Okay, so its not finished yet, but I've been working my butt off to get as far as I did, so I'm taking a break to enjoy my hard work lol.

For my Advanced Art class, we had to alter a book about a certain art movement. I chose pop art. So far, I've gotten the cover and the title page done. I still have ten spreads to do, though. And its due on Thursday... I won't be sleeping much this week haha.

Cover. Sorry about the crappy picture. My camera is weird.
I loved the rolled magazine tutorial, so I used it. I kinda wish I used different shades of orange and green, but it works. Oh and its POP ART, not PAORPT. Wink


Both of these are very popular pictures from two of the three artists I'm going to be talking about in the book, so I guess it makes sense to put them on the title page? Maybe? haha. I'm thinking about putting another picture in the lower left hand corner, underneath the airplane comic.

6  Trash Woven Purse? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by RosyPosy on: March 28, 2009 11:11:55 AM
My friend walked in the other day with this work of art:

She said her aunt got it for her when she went to the Philippines; the natives weave their trash together into nifty purses like this and give them out as gifts. I know I've seen this before, the question is how? and with what kind of wrappers?

Any ideas? Cheesy

EDIT: Found this article on the internet.

I made a separate thread for it. Its made from pop bottles, t-roll, and leftover ribbon.

The ribbons were finger-weaved (if that's what its called) Indian-styled. I then hot-glued it over the base (t-roll and pop bottle), folded over the sides, hotguing them in place, and folded the ends in, trimming the excess.

This picture shows what I did for the inside. It looked rather messy b/c the weave wasn't thick enough to cover the entirety of the inside, lol. So I took a piece of black ribbon and glued it in there. It covers up the "seams" rather nicely.

The toilet paper roll was my base. I cut a line in the toilet paper roll, going straight up, then cut out two bands of the same length. Because one wasn't thick enough to cover my wrist, I overlapped them together when I hotglued. Then I cut a [20 ounce, but the litter ones would work better] Pepsi bottle the same way I did the t-roll, after cutting off the tops and bottoms. I cut two bands from it and before hotgluing them to the t-roll, one on top, one on bottom, I put it on my wrist so that the glue would form to my wrist. Otherwise, it would make a circle and be rather uncomfortable to wear, in my opinion. The t-roll is for a base; it adds thickness and some stablitiy. The pop bottle is for more stability and it keeps the bracelet round-ish. Cardboard would flatten after a bit of abuse. Try to keep the plastic and cardboard the exact same length when curved. Otherwise, it'll look funky. Also note that you don't want to be cutting the "base" after its all glued together b/c the hotglue comes apart quite easily. Trust me, its not fun to peel hotglue off cardboard so you can reglue it. A tip: before putting on the ribbon, or fabric if you choose, put some batting down. This will make the bracelet look less cubic. I didn't have any handy, nor did I think of using some, when I made this bracelet, but I know I will the next time I try. Wink

Glad you like it; I'm rather proud of it myself.

9  cute bracelets from trash XD in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RosyPosy on: October 01, 2007 04:11:44 PM
Made this bracelet out of a toilet paper roll, a pop bottle, lots n' lots of hotglue, and left over ribbon. I'm rather proud of how it came out.

Basically my first attempt at jewlry. EVER. It fits nicely (I have huge wrists) and is actually quite comfortable.
