1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Oil Painting: door mouse on: February 03, 2009 07:55:27 AM
a beutiful and amazing piece of art! I really love it and I push the "this rocks" button!
really, I can't even imagine how people manage to create such realistic works, it's something absolutely incredible and adorable!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! It makes me feel very happy to read all of your nice comments!
And I'm also very glad that I was able to achieve the intended "pop-art" look!

Now I think about the idea of selling similar custom pieces to other people... Of course all framed and looking the proper way, not like this one at the current time  Grin But I wonder whether there will be any demand for it...  Undecided
I'm a member of a charity organisation helping homeless pitbulls and Staffordshire Terriers and we're always looking for new possible ways to raise money for your dogs, so I thought about selling my crafts Huh Now I wonder whether it'll have a chance
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Bottle of love (365 love quotes) on: June 03, 2008 03:47:58 AM
wow, it looks very impressive! my boyfriend and me are together for 1,5 years but it somehow happened that we never celebrated our anniversaries  Sad
however he's not the most romantic type of men, so I'm not sure whether he would appreciate such an enormous effort... but from my (totally romantic) point of view it's AMAZING!!!  Roll Eyes
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Re: Big Project Stitchalong 2008 on: June 01, 2008 08:56:35 PM
OMG, what a beautiful and colorful project! the size and the colors and details and...
I'm just speechless! I think I'll never be brave enough to start something similar  Cheesy
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pitbull in Andy Warhol style on: June 01, 2008 06:10:41 AM
I finally finished the project I'm super-proud of!  Roll Eyes
It's a portrait of my pitbull Patch. I designed the pattern from a photo.
After lots of changes in Photoshop, the pattern editing program and during the stitching process

this photo

turned into this

I need to iron it and to find a suitable frame but I wanted to show it off as soon as I finished the stitching  Cheesy

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / gift bag on: June 01, 2008 05:55:54 AM
I needed to find a gift bag for one of my best friend's birthday present, but I couldn't find anything suitable in the shops and I had only very little time for it. The only solution - I made my own gift bag!
about 30 minutes later:

The gift bag is sewn from a layer of the kind of cloth that is usually used for cross-stitch (like Aida?) and two layers of tulle

after the bag was done I added a little decorative... thing  Cheesy made from polymer clay

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Say hello to Mr. Turtle! on: May 17, 2008 03:45:52 PM
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm glad to introduce you to Mr. Turtle  Smiley

he's also saying 'hallo!' to everyone

and here you can see his belly

He is needle felted and has a comfortable clay shell. You can take the shell off and then you have a naked Mr. Turtle, but sorry, no pics... you know, kids might be watchin' this thread and all the stuff  Grin that's why I'll keep this little bit of Mr. Turtle's privacy  Cheesy
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: T-shirt with bull terrier image on: May 10, 2008 09:11:54 AM
MollyGirl,  when I look at a bullie it seems to me that they are always smiling!  Smiley and I really don't understand the people's attitude to such dogs  Sad I've never seen more human-loving breeds than bullies and pits! But I'm very glad that there are people who still love them and I'm proud to have such a dog! and I think that I'm not alone  Wink

piinkfeline, thank you!  Smiley oh yeah, I know about the situation in Germany =( my boy was born in Germany but it was 11 years ago, at the time when such breeds were allowed to keep. And the current situation makes me really sad because I love Germany and I have a very close connection with this country (In 1 year I'll have my diploma as an German teacher  Grin). But the government here in Russia also plans some quite horrible laws connected with big and "dangerous" breeds, so our life seems to get harder soon  Sad

olive_juice, thank you very much for the compliment and for the link!! definitely a fantastic film! I was almost crying at the scene with the burning wind mill  Embarrassed Thankfully nobody was at home when I watched it so I didn't have to explain why I was crying about a story for kids  Cheesy
today or tomorrow I'll wash the shirt... I'll try to wash by hands at first, because I'm too afraid to stuff it in the wash machine  Grin

MollyGirl, thank you  Smiley I love the picture of your dog!! the bullies are sooooo sweet  Cheesy I've a pit bull now but I'm seriously thinking about getting a bullie later, when I'll move out from my parent's home and get an own flat  Cheesy

olive_juice, oh... it's really him! what a shame... I've never heard about this movie before  Undecided I MUST see it!!

Kimby, thank you! I used regular spray paints. Although I haven't washed the shirt yet and I can't say for sure how the colors will behave. I used regular acrylics on shirts before, but they weren't spray paints, I had to use a brush for them. However, they survived even after the washmachine!  Cheesy
As for the gradual fade, first I sprayed about 3/4 of the image with blue, for the last part I used a thinner layer of paint as in the beginning. Then I started to spray with purple from the other side and also used a thinner layer in the part where purple overlapped the blue part.

nataluna, thank you for the great idea with the speech balloon! I haven't even thought about it! In this particular case it doesn't bother me a lot because it was a kind of test piece (although I'm wearing it now for several days  Grin), but I have some similar shirts that I'd like to use in the future so I think I could use your idea there!!!
