1  Fortune Teller Booth in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: September 03, 2015 05:40:42 PM
After making loads and loads of fairy themed things I was itching to make something a litter less 'sparkly' and decided on a Fortune Teller booth

The piece measures just a smidge under 13", which is a bit larger than I usually work in. The Gypsy fortune teller inside is free sculpted from polymer clay, her hair is wool roving.

Inside she has a crystal ball and wee tarot cards

The box itself is made with foamcore, covered with old bits of paper and has decorative elements I created with paperclay and a mold.

2  The Wandry Room in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: June 24, 2015 04:39:18 PM
"The Wandry Room" just like a boring laundry room... only for fairy wands and wings.

It measures 7" x 8" x 4" so it's pretty wee. Here's the 'outside'

And another view of the whole she-bang. There's a lot going on in there. Including a bottled magic, soap, baking soda, wand and wing starch, bars of soap, buckets, and a wandry machine for getting out tough wand stains.

It's a bit of a mess, but don't worry, it's run by trained professionals.

It's really teeny weeny.

There's a wand repair manual from 1978 tucked inside the tool box.

Copper plumbing and extra wand parts tucked beneath the sink.

Suds in the handmade bucket. You need LOADS of bubbles to clean wands and wings.

A bit of magic spilled on the floor. You can see a load of clean wands drying on the left.

Some extra manuals and how-to books tucked here and there.

Wands and wings tagged and ready for pick up!

And for a bit of scale here's my grubby hand Smiley

5  Miniature Butcher and Charcuterie in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: December 14, 2014 10:16:08 AM
I made this for my husband for Christmas. He used to be a butcher many moons ago and is still smitten with meaty things. He smokes his own bacon, makes his own sausage and even dries his own meats. Basically, he feels the same way about meat as I feel about crafting Tongue

The outside measurements are around 7.5" x 5.8". It's pretty dang small and the inside space was even teenier so it was a chore to arrange all the inside bits and still have it close up.
Here's a business card and pencil for size reference...

I made all of the meats with polymer clay. I'm usually pretty relaxed with the realism in my work so this level of non-imaginaryness was a change for me.

And that's that! Now to wrap this sucker up and hide it before he peeks... he is a total peeker. Seriously, worse than my kid  Tongue

Here's a covert picture with the hanging rail in place. I almost can't wait to give it to him  Smiley

It's seems like forever since I posted in here but I refuse to let this thread die!  Kiss

I'm making a little something for my hubs for Christmas... and since I can't show it off anywhere else because of his peeking eyes I'm sharing here

It's not completely done yet but I'm so proud I couldn't wait to show it off. He used to be a butcher and still cures his own meats and makes sausages and stuff from home so I've made him this little shop including all of the contents Smiley

8  Tiny Winter Wonderland in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: November 18, 2014 11:08:14 AM
My neighbour volunteers at a charity/thrift shop and brings me loads of great stuff. A couple of weeks ago she dropped off an empty clock box. I knew right away that I wanted to create a little wonderland inside.

The piece can be viewed from either side. One side features a little cottage, the other a tiny snowman.

This fellow is a smidge smaller than the one in this piece.

Overall the piece measures 7" x 8"

9  Poe and Lovecraft Framed Portraits in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: October 23, 2014 08:50:28 AM
I had a design team assignment from Petaloo to create something with their products, and products from Xyron and Core'dinations for a Halloween blog hop, and because they are super cool they let me create whatever pops into my head. So, I made these two 'Masters of Horror' portraits featuring Edgar A Poe and HP Lovecraft

The tentacles are made from polymer clay

I'm pretty sure that's a turkey feather, not a raven's... but I know you won't spoil the secret  Kiss

Prepare to be blown away! I received the most astounding package from felicitybaby.

Some bits and bobs, including a little Butter Beer mug.

Then, an amazing dragon sketchbook.

Next, this Burrow pillow which I completely adore.

And.... drumroll... a lap quilt!

I'm going to show off each of the squares because it is mindblowing  Kiss

Slowly but surely my house is turning into the Burrow Wink

Thanks for being an amazing partner felicitybaby!
