Wheeee! I received an amazing package from the uber talented Ludi!

Check out the loot and prepare to pin...

There's a Mervyn Peake book of non-sense, an embroidered quote and the most gorgeous little non-sense house. There's an Alice in Wonderland card too... but it seems to have escaped the picture taking.

Here's a better look at the stupendous stitchery... seriously gorgeous.

And I hope Ludi gives this piece it's own thread because it absolutely deserves it.

4  "Let me think" mixed media steampunk sign in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Knickertwist on: April 04, 2014 06:43:09 AM
I created this piece for Graphic 45 with their Typography line (which I LOVE).

The base is a Walnut Hollow Innkeeper Signboard to which chipboard gears, and a slew of bits and bobs have been applied.

The little burnt out lightbulbs were found at the bottom of a box of junk we bought at auction last year. SEE there is a reason to keep absolutely everything!

The gears are chipboard pieces from Gina's Designs which have been painted with copper paint and then distressed.

The "Let me think" is from a vintage kid's book that I tear into on a semi regular basis.

A complete supply list is available on my blog  Kiss

5  Cutesy birdhouse to shabby chic abode redo in Completed Projects by Knickertwist on: March 27, 2014 01:09:14 PM
My neighbour gave me this cute house thing-a-ma-bob to play with a while ago and it has been sitting for ages waiting for some attention. Petaloo asked me if I would like to guest design for them and I said "yes!" (duh!) and they send along some Marion Smith papers that just begged to be used on this redo project...

6  Thrifted Frames for Art Abandonment in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Knickertwist on: March 21, 2014 12:32:50 PM

I belong to THIS art abandonment group on facebook. If you're unfamiliar the gist is: make something, leave it in a public place for a stranger to find. It's a lot of fun and a very freeing thing to do. This month the challenge was to thrift a piece of art from a second hand shop and repurpose that to make something to abandon. I bought this bunch of old frames...

and filled them with little collages...

I'll be leaving them around town this weekend! I hope nice people find them Smiley

7  TARDIS!!! Wardrobe redo for the kiddo's room. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Knickertwist on: March 16, 2014 04:13:05 PM
I'm not even entirely done this project but I can't stand to wait to share it.

I bought this beat up old wardrobe for $10 in an online auction. It was so bad that when we showed up to pay for it they asked if we were sure we wanted it  Cheesy

The more I looked at it, the more I wanted to turn it in to some sort of portal to Narnia... then I was reminded that maybe my kid might need it more for hanging clothes in and stuff.  Roll Eyes

So, my boy picked a lovely shade of blue and I started painting...

And I quickly realized that this was no portal to Narnia... THIS WAS A TARDIS!

Like I said, it's not done. The door inserts will be replaced over the next week or two, hardware replaced and a storage box and light added to the top... but I'm THRILLED with how it's turning out and the kiddo loves it too Smiley

8  Re: Terribly Important SOB - The Return GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by Knickertwist on: March 10, 2014 04:39:07 PM
My partner is having camera issues so here are the important things that I sent to her Smiley

A goblin crown:

A badge for important princess tea drinkers:

And a teeny weeny kit for the greatest little vampire hunter who ever lived Smiley

The swap is now finished and flake free! Please check your feedback and let me know if you have any issues. I seem to have entirely misplaced the original thread so I'm sure there will be loads of flubs and blunders.

9  Sneaky Secret Stash Slytherin Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Knickertwist on: March 03, 2014 10:40:20 PM
So Graphic 45 sends me stuff and I in turn make stuff from it. One of their new paper collections is sports themed. I'm not exactly the sporty type BUT then I  noticed one of their papers had a Slytherin sort of colour scheme ... huzzah for Quidditch!

Anyway, I made a sort of secret stash box in Slytherin colours using the Good Ol' Sport and Steampunk Spells paper lines. I'm sure that all Slytherin's have somewhere to hid their contraband.

Inside lots of goodies

There's a complete supply list on this blog post if you're interested

Small hijack of this thread... I made a Sherlock tin a while ago and have since improved on the original... here's some shiny pics of the new thing
