11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Virgin Mary Shrines on: March 29, 2012 05:26:54 PM
I made these both for jo_mama in the OWS.

This one is a Altoid Shrine without the lid. I used glitter paper from the scrapbook isle since I could not get a good coverage of loose glitter. I glued on the top brooch and all the rinestones and it took forever! haha. I painted the sweet little Mary figure white with acrylic paints.
 

And this pocket sized one i did from a Mini Altoid tin. I covered the lid with polymer clay, painted it and added a plastic flower. I used the same glitter paper for the inside along with a Virgin sticker i found at the dollar store.

12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dedication to Her Terribly Importantness on: March 05, 2012 12:29:57 PM
I made this for the totally awesome rlynn in the Terribly Important SOB swap! She has been dubbed the "Marchioness of Finesse and Creativity" so I wanted to make her a Terribly Important shrine. I made it in turquoise and red because Her Marchioness likes that color combo. I found the laser cut wood frame at Michael's and made a box, about an inch deep, to fit behind it for awesome shadow box/shrine effect lol. I painted to wood frame red, and very lightly dry brushed over it with black paint. The picture flattens it a bit, but all the things inside the frame are popped out a little to add dimension.

It look pretty awesome IRL and I really wanted to adopt the name so I could keep it for myself, but alas, it was meant to be with the Wonderful rlynn!

13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Procrastination Altered Tin on: February 19, 2012 10:07:31 AM
Alrighty all. I made this altered tin for the fantastic loves2experiment in the Wicked Vices Altered Tin Swap. One of her vices was procrastination, and i can totally relate to that.

Loves2experiment put into words what i was trying to express:
I love the nonchalant and calm demeanor on the cover...even as deadlines are looming Tongue

The top is made from polymerclay and painted with acrylic paint.

A tiny canvas with the quote "The sooner i fall behind, the more time i have to catch up." All around the edge.

And a little pollyclay bird. "The little black bird is what I imagine procrastination as...a black bird that flys around my head making me lose my motivation"

14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ballad of Serenity (Firefly) on: May 06, 2011 05:13:46 PM


The theme song for the scifi television show Firefly. I really love this show and I love cross stitched quotes!



I used this generator to make my chart: http://www.stitchpoint.com/eng/tool/alph/cross-stitch-writing-tool.php .
15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Alien Birth Relief on: March 24, 2011 09:46:40 AM
I made this in a beggining Sculpture class last summer. This is my relief based on my favorite painting ever Birth of Venus by Botticelli. I based the landscape on the moon, with all the craters in the ground. There is a sun and another planet in the background. It's super shinny from the glaze so it's a bit hard to photograph.



Here is a picture of it when the clay was still wet, before I fired the frist time. I love this picture!!






I still need to do some touch ups; like painting the grout with a gloss black paint, fix some of the white parts that are meant to be black, paint the sides and frame it. I love it so much, I'm really impressed that I could make something like this!

What do you think?

16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Daleks In Love on: February 25, 2011 06:14:36 PM
I love cross stitch for four reasons:
1. I love the way it looks.
2. It's relatively simple to do.
3. I can easily make my own patterns.
4. It's a great craft to do while sitting on the couch.

I'm definitely not an expert or very talented at cross stitch, but I had so much fun designing and stitching these two daleks in love. I originally was only going to stitch one dalek but i didn't have any normal dalek floss colors. So I stitched a cute dalek in pink and purple. After I finished it I felt like it was lonely and stitch a blue and green dalek to keep it company. I framed it an adorably tiny hoop! I love tiny things!

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I LOVE Bracelets! on: February 17, 2011 09:06:17 PM
I love bracelets! Thin ones, thick ones, clusters, charms, interchangeable beads. I've just realized this addiction, but I don't think I'm going to look for any help! After getting two beautiful bracelets from TheSapphireMoon, I decided to make a few today out of some jewelry kits i have. The kits come with everything you need to make a certain project, but I usually don't like the project so much, though the beads and charms are pretty. So I decided to make my own bracelets out of them!

(Fake?) Crystal Cluster Bracelet
I'm pretty certain I am never going to work with so many head pins again! My finger ache! ( Shocked TSM How do you do it?!?) It did turn out pretty nice though!




Colorful Birds
The super cute bird charms are made by my crafty friend noooitaremybirthday.



Plain Jane
Just some pretty light purple and mustard colored beads!

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Girly Fabric Basket on: February 01, 2011 11:52:23 PM
I made this for my niece's birthday. She's turning three, and I wanted to make her something she could always use, instead of a dress she'll only be able to wear for a few months (I know, I'm such a FUN aunt  Roll Eyes Wink ). I also made a fabric banner in matching fabric. The size I made would work perfectly hanging on a closet rod.

I used this tutorial: http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/05/tutorial-fabric-basket.html
