Lol normally glitter is NOT one of my go-to craft materials - I'm so out of my element with "sparkly". I love it in this piece though Smiley

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Bride and Groom Day of the Dead Miniature Box (IMG heavy) on: January 04, 2012 04:46:52 PM
Okay, so ages ago my sister and I visted Mexico and she had her eye on some of the crafty boxed minatures that we saw in a lot of places. She didn't really have the money to spring for one so I fiiiinally got around to making her one for Christmas.

Its made out of that Crayola foam clay stuff (can't remember what its called), an old el paso taco box (accidentally themed - it was the first thing I saw that would work), some frabric scraps, acrylic paint, and lots and lots of glitter.

I made the figures removable so that she could get a closer look at their cute little costumes Wink


Close up of their rings (the diamond is a nail gem I glued to a small piece of wire I wrapped around my pliers)

Another close up of the rings (click to enlarge)

For a sense of the scale (click to enlarge)

The colours look a bit off since I hurredly took the pics against a white background and I had to adjust the colours

Smiley Crits and comments welcome!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Miniature Jersey Christmas Ornaments on: December 30, 2011 11:30:59 AM
Every year at our staff Christmas party I make ornaments for all of us who work at the small independant business at which I am employed. This year I made small jerseys with the first letter of the name of the business (and coincidentally the name of the boss/owner). On the back I put the year each of us started working there. (At the moment there are only four of us starting in 1981, 1994, 2004, & 2006). I picked jerseys since we all get along/work as a team etc etc. I'm not the most deft with fabric/sewing etc so I'm pretty happy how these turned out. Smiley

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Day of the Dead Watercolour Portrait on: December 21, 2011 05:25:46 PM
Thanks guys! Smiley I guess I'm on a DOD kick right now as I'm doing something else DOD themed for my sister for Christmas.. It's 3D so I think it'll go up on another board though. I'm excited to post it, but I have to wait until I give it to her, lest she somehow sneeks a peek on here. Perhaps I've already said too much? (I hope she doesnt' see this...)

Whenever I see something like this I always want to try my hand at quilting (although my sewing machine hates me). Beautiful work!
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Day of the Dead Watercolour Portrait on: November 05, 2011 08:59:28 PM
I've done a few of these watercolour stencil portraits based on this (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301135.0) thread. I was inspired by some of the day of the dead art pieces floating around and decided to do some more of the stencil portraits and add some embellishments.

My sister and I.

Here is another stencil portrait based on the same photo to give an idea of what the picture looked like without the DOD details.

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Pilot Retirement Party Placecards [pic heavy-ish] on: October 07, 2010 02:58:50 PM
My dad just retired from his job as a commercial pilot this fall, and so for our family dinner I made little name card holders using each airline he has flown for during his many years in the air. They're about 4" x 2" (folded), made out of a single piece of card and painting using Derwent Inktense pencils. The wings and tails are cut out and folded up to give them a 3rd dimension. The cotton ball 'clouds' and name tags are removable, since I was considering framing the planes in shadow boxes as a nice reminder.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
