1  Handbook for the recently deceased notebooks :) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Nodsu on: May 14, 2017 11:05:02 PM
I'm getting ready for my kiddo's birthday party.
This year it will be Beetlejuice! ... I love that she loves Tim Burton movies and wanted to be Edward Scissorhands for Halloween (which did not happen, unfortunately.. maybe next year).

But the first thing off my list is tiny notebooks for part favors - they turned out so cute!

I downloaded (=stole for personal use) the image of the Handbook, shrunk it and made tiny pages from copy paper.
All the 9 year olds better love it, as it took forever Cheesy
(I'm really not good at papercrafts)

And now we'll need to make some black slime, a Beetlejuice snake cake and a creepy piata... so much fun!

2  Walter says HI! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: March 26, 2017 01:51:46 PM

I love making silly odd dolls.
Walter is an easygoing observative little guy, who likes art and all things dry and moist-free LOL

He's made from paperclay and has a natural linen body with some french knot bumps and stitched joint hoops (man, that took forever).

Hope you guys like him!

3  Aye aye! in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: March 23, 2017 05:59:55 PM
One of my favorite animals (I have quite a few).
So wonderfully odd and adorably ugly ❤

Needle felted on a wire frame.

And to balance the cute-ugly with cute-cute -a little fawn!

... I just love felting animals - from odd to adorable - although, to me, the uglier = the cuter Cheesy

4  My neverending Don Quixote painting. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: March 23, 2017 05:48:39 PM
When my dear husband asked me to make a huge somber Don Quixote painting with his scrawny horse and fields, I dove into the challenge and thought "why not?".

What I learned-  painting a human, horse and a landscape all in 1 is quite the challenge. Also - trying to capture someone else's vision is not always easy.

I think it turned out good.
I think it's about 40" wide and finally ready to get framed.

5  Little felted friends in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: March 07, 2017 05:47:33 PM
It's been a while again, but trying to keep up with my Craftster friends and share my latest works.
It's been quite a few pet portraits - in 3 d and 2 D.
These 3" pups are actually brooches (back) and the cats are about 5" ... and the lil hammie about 4".

And I try to do more wool paintings as well -they are so fun!
Here's boxer Cali (6" frame/hoop)

Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the approaching spring weather with crafting filled days!

6  The birdwoman in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: September 13, 2016 07:59:23 PM
I made this birdwoman, for the talented ArtsyCandice, in IYP swap. I know she loves all things bird and women-  and I tried to work that into an art doll, I would enjoy making.
She has wire body porcelain arm and feather wing, coffee dyed  (I tried  Grin )cheesecloth neck and feet and clay plague mask peak. Her body is rom wool sweater and has embroiderd stitches on it. And I love that antique lace trim Smiley

And she brought her little hungry plant pet with her  Wink - wire body, glass bead teeth (posable mouth and tongue) ... they both might be a bit on the creepy side, but i swear, they behived like perfect ladies, while staying over, so no worries!  Wink

The floofiest kitty I ever made.
I just love the color of her eyes ... and the floofiness 😄
And someone that fancy could use a some accessories, right?

Thanks for looking!

8  Re: IYP 29: summer swing along Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Nodsu on: September 02, 2016 03:19:09 PM
Wow! The gallery has exploded!
I love the stenciled shirt, the quilt, THE QUILT! The glass, the hood, the beautiful stumpwork embroidery - so much to admire!

And - I've received from the fantabulous ArtsyCandice!
We agreed to swap 1 large (hahaa, I knew it would end like this 😄) - but I got more awesome than 1 thing.

But first.
Look at this wall art!
I absolutely adore this doll!
I really love lacey handpainted  art dolls - and having one on the wall is the perfect way to display her!
She's got beautiful painted body, with rosy knees and perfectly sewn lacey dress, beady wings and ribbon shoes and a set of awesome antlers! The scull necklace adds personality and whimsy to her as well!
In love.
She's hanging in my daughters' room now - my little one is a devoted little ballerina and is so excited to have her on their wall.

And I received also 2 other wall art pieces - I'm too excited, as it'll be so fun to mix and match these small art pieces on my walls! A beautiful golden sculpture cast feather (my first cast piece!) And a photo art (love the mermai tail!)
And a little cage with super fun supplies! Love the cage and every treasure it contains - little trims and tidbits!

I'm so happy with my new treasures - it was a wonderful treat - thank you so much! ❤

(I'll send on due date, if not sooner 😄)

9  When someone is that handsome, you just have to draw him in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: July 09, 2016 11:57:06 PM
With mistakes and all, cause you don't really draw that often... but still turns out cute.
There's this doggie, that has the most perfect eye makeup ever (#creedmorethegreat ) - and I jsut had to draw him last night, when itching to doodle, but not having a subject Cheesy

here's my drawing:

and here's the cutie:

10  Sphynx brooch in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: July 09, 2016 11:43:12 PM
I'm a bit obsessed with Sphynx kitties Cheesy
Aren't they the coolest - such weird animals with the biggest most gorgeous eyes ... and no hair on couches and sweaters!
(well, mine don't anyway, as we don't have any pets... but I'm hoping for a nude kitten at some point in my life Cheesy).

They also make for great jewelry - so, I made a brooch. Just a head (and my June Planning Ai doll is modeling it for me, too Tongue)

Hope you like!
