So my best friend asked me to make radish earrings. This was actuall very hard for me. I don't really like radish for taste or anything but i tried to make them whimsical and fun. Let me know what you think!

6  Only Rabbits Wear Glasses in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by nirvanagrl on: May 24, 2007 07:00:02 PM
Just a few works i did that i wanted somewhat pinup style. I don't think you should kill an animal without the intention of respecting its life and using it for nurishment. Hunting just for the head to me is a sad thing...it really doesn't pull that message across because i am lame and didn't want to make a super charged message. But the hunter isn't wearing glasses. My friend posed for them all so yeah! Have a look.

Acrylic on canvas 16" by 24"







here is a short documentation of the bunny one i made from start to finish. I need to do more of these. I sorta trance out when i paint and this helped me to kinda see how i work. Usually i am almost done with a painting and don't remember doing it. And NO i am not using drugs Tongue



Alrighty more to come need to get my butt back to arting it up.

7  metal beaded May in Craftalongs by nirvanagrl on: May 23, 2007 09:10:45 PM
Today was watching a very sick 5 year old all day. So i decided to make up a fun project for us to do. So we made jewlery while watching princess movies. Here is a set i made. Its my first time really bending wire and making links with it. I had fun making the spirals on the bracelet and the  earrings. I usually in the past used hemp or floss to make jewlery. So metal is still new to me. I am sure i will get more creative with time working in it. Here is what i did. It fits in with the metal theme for this month. The beads are all cool colored but are very much metal looking.

Please dont' mind the cat hair in the photos. They shed and i can't seem to get them to stop no matter how i beg them!










thanks for looking!

here is the tut i made rather fast. Hope its readable!







Its really not so hard, maybe just hard on the hands depending on what gauge wire your using. But its fun to do. But beware tension!! Evil evil tension!

9  first woven bracalet, first craft on craftster for me :) in Craftalongs by nirvanagrl on: May 22, 2007 05:43:39 PM
double whamie of firsts! Okay so i have wanted to jump in and get my feet wet so i decided to start with this craft-a-long because its really flipping cool and I have seen so many amazing things here that it inspired me to be a part. So i decided to make a woven bracelet. I hope the images work. Never done this here :/







I am going to make some more metallic things just to get back into practice creating. I took way to long a break from doing crafts to work but now i am getting it back a part of my life.

Things I will keep in mind when doing this in the future is to mind my tension. DOH!
