1  Re: Watercolor Stencil Portrait + TUTORIAL in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by imakee on: April 28, 2009 10:03:51 PM
I don't have a single clue where to get masking liquid in my area so I went with a white crayon as a resist.

3  Progression of My Art Abilities (WIP) UPDATE 4/8 MOAR PICS! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by imakee on: April 01, 2009 02:35:28 AM
I am a crafter. I see something I like and I make it. Or something close to it. Sometimes I don't actually get around to finishing a project because I suffer from the worst case of craft ADD ever. So in an effort to get me in the habit of finishing I have committed myself to complete one project everyday for a year. I picked something easy to complete in one day and versatile enough that I could use many different techniques (to satisify my ADD). So I found a few blank boards at the local art supply store and today I created my first piece.



I am planning on documenting my project on a blog I created especially for this purpose. Hopefully I will be posting many more of these projects on this board over the course of the year.

4  Baby shelf from scratch in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by imakee on: March 06, 2008 10:13:42 AM
I live on the west coast and my older (by one year) sister lives on the east coast. So of course I didn't get an invitation to her baby shower. I did get her on the phone to ask what she needed for her baby girl. She explained that all her friends had taken care of all the big things and that the theme was cherry blossoms and pink and brown. So I snuck onto babies r us and found the design her baby stuff was in and made her a shelf with the baby's name and some origami cherry blossoms. I put a few coats of sealer so the blossoms shouldn't come off at all.



the pink is actually lighter in RL.



The top is solid brown and has the Sakura lyrics arranged on the top and the edges are brown as well. I haven't attached the hardware yet. Comments/criticisms would be appreciated. I sure hope she likes it.

5  Wall letters in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by imakee on: March 06, 2008 10:02:34 AM
Inspired by a post on craftster (I am sorry but I didn't bookmark the thread to give credit) I made some wall letters for my son and my adopted daughter.

I had them chose the papers when we were in Michaels but didn't tell them what it was for. They ended up picking coordinating papers anyway so it worked out great. We are still working out how we want to hang them up.

6  Deere inspired canister in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by imakee on: March 06, 2008 09:52:53 AM
I love John Deere. I have deere plates, bowls, mugs, salt and pepper shakers, and now my first canister. Of course I got the canister when I was dumpster diving last week. It screamed stripes to me and I complied. When I find a good stencil I will paint the logo on the top.

Now I just need placemats.

7  Violet for sister in Needlework: Completed Projects by imakee on: February 27, 2008 09:25:10 PM
This is my most recent completed xstitch. It is the second xstitch I have made for my sister's birthday. It is seriously late but since I have to mail it to her I want to collect a couple of more projects to send together.



Because of the weird shape I had a bit of trouble finding the right size frame. I found a framed picture in Joann's and took it apart to put my stuff in. I am very proud of the finished look to the back of the frame.

8  first cross stitch project in Needlework: Completed Projects by imakee on: February 27, 2008 09:19:20 PM
I made this years ago (almost 9 years) but recently found it again and took a pic. I absolutely love the frame but can't remember where in the world I found it.

9  Shoe cabinet in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by imakee on: February 27, 2008 09:13:41 PM
My husband owns more shoes than I do. In fact so does my son. So I needed a place to put all those dirty shoes. I found a cabinet someone had chucked. I suspect it was going to be a bathroom cabinet.

I haven't decided how to do the doors yet. Still thinking.

10  Apple bulbs in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by imakee on: February 27, 2008 09:08:07 PM
4 of the light bulbs in my bathroom burnt out in one week. The first bulb I tried to hollow out broke in my hand. The second broke when my son was moving them from the table. But I did manage to paint two of them. Now I just need to find more burnt out bulbs to paint!
