1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The birdwoman on: September 13, 2016 07:59:23 PM
I made this birdwoman, for the talented ArtsyCandice, in IYP swap. I know she loves all things bird and women-  and I tried to work that into an art doll, I would enjoy making.
She has wire body porcelain arm and feather wing, coffee dyed  (I tried  Grin )cheesecloth neck and feet and clay plague mask peak. Her body is rom wool sweater and has embroiderd stitches on it. And I love that antique lace trim Smiley

And she brought her little hungry plant pet with her  Wink - wire body, glass bead teeth (posable mouth and tongue) ... they both might be a bit on the creepy side, but i swear, they behived like perfect ladies, while staying over, so no worries!  Wink

2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Fluffy kitty on: September 09, 2016 11:40:04 AM
The floofiest kitty I ever made.
I just love the color of her eyes ... and the floofiness 😄
And someone that fancy could use a some accessories, right?

Thanks for looking!
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / When someone is that handsome, you just have to draw him on: July 09, 2016 11:57:06 PM
With mistakes and all, cause you don't really draw that often... but still turns out cute.
There's this doggie, that has the most perfect eye makeup ever (#creedmorethegreat ) - and I jsut had to draw him last night, when itching to doodle, but not having a subject Cheesy

here's my drawing:

and here's the cutie:

4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Sphynx brooch on: July 09, 2016 11:43:12 PM
I'm a bit obsessed with Sphynx kitties Cheesy
Aren't they the coolest - such weird animals with the biggest most gorgeous eyes ... and no hair on couches and sweaters!
(well, mine don't anyway, as we don't have any pets... but I'm hoping for a nude kitten at some point in my life Cheesy).

They also make for great jewelry - so, I made a brooch. Just a head (and my June Planning Ai doll is modeling it for me, too Tongue)

Hope you like!
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Can I change my profile name? on: July 01, 2016 11:43:25 PM
When I started here, eons ago, I was such a newbie and also pretty new to the US - so, my brain didn't connect "Petskin" with pet+skin  (I thought of it as a derivation from the Russian word "petatsjok", which also means Piglet, as one of my Russian friends used to call me that and it sounded cute). Sure enough, years ago, I realized I named myself PET SKIN  Roll Eyes LOL. I mean, I like weird and all... but it's not what I had in mind.

*and it's probably in the wrong category? (that'd be so much like me)
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Science Birthday Party! on: June 30, 2016 09:33:59 PM
My 8 yo decided she really wants to have a science themed party this year.
I love theme parties and especially such a great one - not any of that Disney stuff, but science! Haa!

So, we needed:

*disposable medical coats - to protect clothing and customize with sharpies
*silly glasses and felt moustaches - cause silly!
*Special Einstein wig for the Bday girl
*beakers - for juice
*test tubes - to fill with candies and to take home
*test cups {with biohazard stickers}- to put their glue goo in
*Pinjata - a quick red test tube with bubble wrap "foam" sticking out
*Photo props - Elements table (with an extra element - the Bday kid's name!), rat, test tube and Einstein's hair
*Fun facts decor - Einstein's and Hawking's quote
*petri dishes-  to take some wonderful little tetanus and salmonella viruses home - gotta have gifts! Cheesy

Progress video of one of the drawings:

and we also needed supplies, such as:

*white glue - for goo making
*Borax - to mix with glue to get goo
*baking soda - to mix with vinegar to fill balloons with gas
*Balloons - to fill said gas with
*Empty water bottles - to put the vinegar and baking soda in
*Vinegar - to mix with baking soda to get gas
*Dry ice - to add to juice for cool icy effect

Look at the balloons filling up:

- cause, you know - nobody can be uncheered with a balloon! -
(you should've heard the squealing and giggling, that the balloon trick caused- such excitement!)

Everyone had a blast and the experiments with basic household items were a huge hit, so was the dry ice Smiley
(and I had a lot of fun making stuff for the party - if only I could get someone to run the show, that day, too, we'd be all set Cheesy)

7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Cobalt blue tarantula on: May 25, 2016 09:13:45 PM
I love seeing how things progress over time - practice is everything.

So, here's the wonderful creature, that is the Cobalt Blue Tarantula -they look really cool and I love the idea, that blue spiders actually exist in nature.
 I've made 3 (the first  spider is missing a pair of short front legs, even Cheesy)

Hope you like it! Wink

8  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / A hedgehog. Cause there's never too many hedgies. on: May 19, 2016 10:43:31 PM

Needle felted hedgie - the wool painting. It's really fun and I love the look and texture the fibers create.
And it's a hedgie! If only they weren't banned in CA, I'd already own a chubby little hedgie.

9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Rupert the bunny. on: May 19, 2016 10:14:34 PM
Because I've always wanted to make a bunny and never got around to actually making one.
I had these beautiful glass eyes, that didn't work out, but I think the plastic eyes are just as good.

And he's Rupert, because my kid really wanted that to be his name Cheesy

10  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Fiber paintings - they're just so much fun. on: February 11, 2016 09:48:59 PM
I've discovered how much I love 2D felting, lately. THe wool on wool, in embroidery hoops, is way fun.
And I love, that I can yet again combine my favorites- felting and weird Cheesy

Here's a little mole rat, that's owning it up and is done being shy:

and here's another piece WIP - my kids, being felted into a portrait, that may or may not get finished One Day Cheesy

And I've been also felting 3D sculptures and having fun with scribble-edits on my phone -

Hope you like and thanks! Smiley
