1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Vintage Glamour Girl on: May 12, 2011 08:08:59 PM
I'm not sure if everyone here will consider this art but I think it is. I really love cleaning up old black and white photos and then colorizing them.

The original image is from www.thegraphicsfairy.com. This was also my first time using textures and I got mine from www.bittbox.com. Comments and critiques appreciated.

p.s. The dot above her eye was removed in final copy, It was part of the texture I somehow missed when I saved this particular image and I'm too tired to upload the proper image tonight.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Frosted Glass Mirror? on: March 05, 2010 02:50:28 PM
Hello all, I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this but here goes...

Well I've had this mirror since I was a child and even then I think it was old! It has this really pretty design on it were some of the areas look like they are frosted. I'm not sure if they are but when I was young I would wipe the areas with my fingers and the white area would disappear for a bit and then return... at least for a while then they started to come back in spots. After seeing I was damaging the mirror I stopped but there are a few areas that just look bad. As of now I just want to get rid of the areas while keeping the existing design. Here is a picture of the corner so you can see what I mean...



I want to keep the black, pink, and green areas and just get rid of the white... I just don't know what it is! I don't even know if it is possible, but in my head it will look good like that.

For some reason today I have been loving taking black and white photos I found online and colorizing them! Just click the thumbnail to make it bigger.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Card on: December 03, 2009 08:08:23 PM
For my design class we had to make our own Christmas cards. The teacher wanted us to use our own photography for the card but unfortunately it hasn't snowed here and I've been so busy with other classes I don't have any decorations up so I can't take any Christmasy pictures Sad Instead I looked for clip art in microsoft word and then made my image in photoshop. I absolutely love it and if I knew where I could have cards printed up (my printer broke) I would and send them out.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Camera Cozy on: November 18, 2009 08:56:35 PM
I'm taking a digital photography class this semester and I didn't have a case for my camera which I always keep in my purse. So out of fear that it would get damaged in my very messy purse I made a camera cozy! This is my first completed crochet project and I made the pattern up as I went along... It's really just two rectangles sewn together with a button hole in one so nothing fancy, lol!



p.s. It really isn't that saggy looking in real life, it was made to fit my camera perfectly but since I needed the camera to take the picture my much smaller phone is modeling it for me!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Invitation on: October 22, 2009 01:04:44 PM
So after 7 years and 2 kids my guy and I have decided it's time to tie the knot. Even thought he hasn't officially proposed and I don't have a ring yet we have a mutual understanding that sometime in 2011 we are going to get married. Since that is quite a while away I haven't done much except find pictures of things I like and organize them in a file on my computer. Well today I found an invitation that I liked and figured I could recreate it in photoshop. Now I will probably find something else that I really like and scrap this but for now I like it and we'll see if it stands the test of time...



Of course I blacked out our last names and the date, website, and password are just placeholders. One thing that I know for sure is that to reduce the amount of paper we use this will be it for the information and no RSVP card, programs, menues, etc... everything will be on the website and it will be password protected. The RSVP is the coolest thing though, I'm making it in Visual Basic and once I finish I'll have to post a link to the practice web page and RSVP form (I'm a web design, computer programming major if anyone cares to know)

Comments and critiques are welcome!

So for my design class our teacher told us to play with photoshop a bit. This was my first time creating something in photoshop from scratch, usually just I edit existing pictures. I'm pretty proud of it!

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / christmas lights problem on: December 22, 2008 05:18:24 PM
Well it's too late to do anything this year but every year the lights on my tree hurt my eyes. I'm really sensitive to light especially at night and a lit tree in a dark room is just annoying to me, everything gets so blurred I can't even see the ornaments. Now I love putting up a tree and my daughter loves the lights so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of something else I could use? I've tried different colored lights, the red ones just gave me a headache and blue lights weren't to bad but still annoying. This year my tree is one of the pre lit trees and I'm going to get a new one next year, hopefully white or green with fake snow!
