11  Peacock Shrinkydink Bracelet [img heavy with process pics] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gwennie363 on: January 22, 2010 07:39:53 PM


So apparently I'm in a real shrinkydink phase hehe. I made a peacock bracelet today. (coloured with pencil crayons). The colours in the photo below arent as vibrant as they are in reall life, but whatcha gonna do? (besides learn how to use your camera better! lol) Here it is all finished and put together:




Blurry pic of it on:


The back of the completed piece, which I think actually looks cooler than the front Tongue (you can really see the difference if you go to the full size pic)




I've included a whole bunch of process pics 'cause I know how much I like to see how people get from point a to b in crafting Smiley
Beginning sketch




Colouring...




closeups of the back ..



Just before baking - I always have to remind myself to punch all the holes in beforehand and am continuously kicking myself when I forget! Thankfully I remembered this time!

..and all baked up!


Thanks for looking at alllll those pictures! Hehe .. Wink

14  ShrinkyDink Squares Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gwennie363 on: January 08, 2010 01:14:51 AM
I bought a packet of Shinky Dinks at Michael's a few days ago and decided to try make a bracelet. It was inspired by Etsy user kortadoodle's pendant.
Each square is about an inch per side. Really happy how this one turned out, considering I've never used Shrinky Dink before. (I tried making a pair of earrings after this, but I used non-permanent markers and they bled ALL OVER the place when I tried to glaze them Sad .. you live, you learn.. Wink)

15  Polymer Clay Coffee (Esquires) Mug Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gwennie363 on: January 08, 2010 01:07:02 AM
I gave my sister the Polymer Clay Cookbook (http://www.amazon.ca/Polymer-Clay-Cookbook-Tiny-Jewelry/dp/0823024849) for Christmas and she made a cute pair of mug earrings following the instructions.

She works at a coffee shop called Esquires, so I painted the logo onto the mugs. It think they turned out pretty cute Smiley



They even have coffee inside them Smiley



A close up of the logo.



Thanks for looking Smiley

19  Watercolour Stencil Portrait [img heavyish] in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by gwennie363 on: May 12, 2009 11:32:35 PM
Inspired by this wonderful thread I decided to have a go at a watercolour stencil portrait.




Just the masking before any paint. I wish I had a light table so that I could have been more accurate with the masking but ah well .. A window works almost just as well Smiley


With the paint over the masking:


Off comes the masking!


With all the masking off:


I added a few details with a brush to finish it off. Most of them weren't picked up by the camera however.


I had a tough time getting the stencilization to work correctly as I have pretty fair colourings (eyebrows hair etc) which refused to show up no matter what I fiddled with. But all in all I like it! I'm really excited to try more of these!

20  Re: Paper/cardboard chandelier? in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by gwennie363 on: November 15, 2008 12:27:14 AM
Can you do sort of a silhouette idea? You could use heavy cardboard and then fit them together by cutting slits in them. I tried to do an uber quick illustration of what I mean. (Obviously interchange awkward triangles with chandelier cutouts Wink)



Here are some ideas that you could use for the silhouette:

However, if you actually want to put candles in them or something you'd have figure something else out ..

Hope that helps!
