21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Itty Bitty Art on: November 05, 2009 02:58:28 PM
I love all things mini and have been working on mini canvases lately.
The panda is done on a 3 inch canvas and the doll is done on a 2 inch canvas.
Both done in acrylic paints.








22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 'fraidy cat (My cat is absolutely terrified of this thing!) on: November 01, 2009 01:00:18 PM
Our cat, Buggle, is very interested in playing with a doll I made for my husband (Mark) awhile back.

Since he isn't allowed to play with the "Mark doll", I thought I'd make him his own doll.

I think it turned out really cute, but unfortunately Buggle is absolutely terrified of it.

I have to keep the doll shut up in my room because Buggle walks around on the verge of a panic attack if it's out where he can see it.

The doll is made of cotton fabric which I painted with acrylic paints and finished with varnish.







(And here is Buggle in happier times-before I made the doll...)







 
23  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I SPY on: October 21, 2009 12:41:18 PM
I just love "I Spy" books and wanted to make an "I Spy" pic myself.

This is a first (and very quick attempt).





Play along...


I spy a balloon with no air
and four little chairs.

I spy three unlit candles
and something with handles.
24  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Random Act of Kindness from "The Great Pumpkin" on: October 19, 2009 11:38:23 AM
I thought it would be fun to leave an anonymous gift for the kids that live a few doors down from us.

I made a little fabric sack and inside I put a little treat bag filled with stickers and other small Halloween treats. I also made each of them a small stuffed monster toy.

I tied the sack up with a ribbon and on the tag I wrote that it was from "The Great Pumpkin".





25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shabby to Chic (Redone patio set) on: August 25, 2009 04:26:32 AM
We recently moved and our new landlord asked if we wanted her old patio set.  At "free", the price was just right-only it was pretty shabby looking.  The finish was nearly all gone and the cushions were faded and stained.



I painted the table and chairs black and made a quick slipcover from some fabric I already had.  The makeover cost me $8 (for the quart of paint).











26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recycled Cereal Box Journal/Sketchbooks on: May 29, 2009 01:01:30 PM
I've been using the cardboard from cereal boxes to make covers for little journals/sketchbooks.

I think it would be an awesome project for kids (even if you had to sew the pages in and just let them decorate).

I paint the outside "cover" a solid color and then draw/paint/collage/whatever to decorate the front.   (The sea life book is my personal favorite) Smiley

It's a fun, quick, easy, satisfying project that makes me feel like a little kid. Smiley









27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dirty, ugly dollhouse from the flea market....Made into a colorful happy house on: May 13, 2009 11:39:16 AM
I bought this dollhouse at the flea market for $3.
It was white with a light pink roof and was all dirty and not very pretty.

I painted it with lots of colors and decorated it to look really fun and happy.  I made the two dolls that "live" in this house and some of the furnishings and accessories.

You can see more on my flickr:

28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I made a MICROSCOPIC teeny tiny peg doll... on: March 20, 2009 10:38:06 AM
I am hooked on mini things!

I made a teensy tiny peg doll that fits onto a fingertip!

I made her by cutting down a matchstick and painting.




Thanks for looking! Smiley


29  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Salt Dough Ornaments for my pink Un-Christmas tree on: March 14, 2009 10:55:34 AM
I made these ornaments from salt dough.  I remember making salt dough ornaments when I was a kid.  They are super easy to make.  I used a recipe from a vintage craft book, but I"m sure you could google and find the recipe as well.  Just roll it out (or if you are like me and have no rolling pin, you just mush it down as much as you can) and cut out shapes with cookie cutters.  I added a hole before baking and strung wire and pony beads on after painting. 

I have a "Christmas" tree in my craft room (not a real "Christmas" tree as it's a year round tree and not meant for a holiday).  I think the ornaments look fun and colorful on my pink tree.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley



30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Bunnies!! (Mini diorama and ornament) on: March 11, 2009 02:45:45 PM
I don't know if it's because Easter is coming up or what...but I am TOTALLY in love with bunnies at the moment.

I made some tiny bunnies from polymer clay.
One  project is a mini diorama in a matchbox.
The other project is a panoramic Easter egg style diorama/ornament. (The ornament I made from a paper mache style egg I bought at the craft store).

Thanks for looking! Smiley
