11  What I sent to Gladrags (no peeking, Gladrags, until you open!) in The Swap Gallery by wiseowl on: February 09, 2007 07:46:08 AM


She is picking up her package today, so I figured safe to post what I sent and save a busy student the trouble.

The first amigurumi I have done! Very fun.

"Owl's Roost" crochet scarf with owl button detail. The owls are czech pressed glass.

Precious metal clay (fine silver) Owl's Nest pendant with colored cz and silver clay eggs. This didn't photograph too well- I was very happy with this one.

Owlets light switch plate cover, on Japanese washi paper background.
This was a very fun first swap!!!

12  washi paper switchplate and deco ornaments with Lazertran silk in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by wiseowl on: January 07, 2007 09:14:45 AM
I have been playing with Lazertran transfers, after being less than thrilled with other transfer methods. Here is a switchplate cover detail, made with Japanese washi paper.

And some ornaments (still needing edge sanding) with some art deco prints.

It works very well, although is still vulnerable to fingerprints and tears- just not nearly as much as other color transfer techniques I have used. And mica powders go a long way in covering little boo boos. The only downside is having to so carefully plan out your photocopies- Lazertran is pricey so you don't want to waste it. But a little planning never hurt anyone, did it?

13  craft area reorganization- with BEFORE and AFTER photos (caution-graphic!) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by wiseowl on: December 31, 2006 06:35:31 PM
So, with the holiday rush and entropy in general, it was time to declutter the craft area...here it is disgorged on the floor...

And after! I can find things! I can invite people into the room without lengthy explanations! My books are even organized by craft! Maybe this comes naturally to many of you, but I do find us crafty types can be a wee bit messy. Who wants to interrupt creative flow for mundane things like...sorting? It wasn't fun, but it was needed, and I found a few great things I am sorry to say I had totally forgotten I even owned. May this inspire you for a New Year's resolution...

14  First (decent) project- holiday scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by wiseowl on: December 31, 2006 06:20:02 PM
After a few items now designated "cat toys" and a scarf that was twice as big at one end as the other, I made a decent scarf for my husband for Christmas.  The black was to make it a touch more masculine. The yarn is baby alpaca...ohhhh.
