1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Monster portraits on: June 14, 2012 03:33:08 PM
I am in the process of slowly creating an art wall along one long boring wall in my living room.  What is an art wall with no family portraits? Well what if you are a family of camera shy sillies? Some crafty goodness to the rescue...  I would paint "portraits" of my boys and myself for the wall.

I wisted the monster portrait here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386522.0 by myloveasdeep when I saw it a long time ago, and knew it was the perfect idea for those portraits I needed.

So here they are ready for hanging on the wall...

Boy 1

Boy 2 (who asked if I would remove the braces when he gets them off this summer. hehehe)

and me
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toothless, The Night Fury on: May 27, 2012 03:44:16 PM
This is my care of magical creatures submission for the HP Summer Session.

Meet Toothless

 (yes I know different book/movie)

When I decided to make a dragon for my care of magical creatures assignment.  There could only be one choice, even if it meant tiptoeing out of the HP universe.  One of our favorite dragons around here is definitely Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon."

He is made using material from a pair of super soft pants I bought at our local Salvation army, at 25 Tuesday.   Grin  Using this tutorial from Katy-A on deviantart. 

With just a few changes:
My Toothless is scaled down a little. I needed to make sure I would have enough material and space is tight around here so we needed the smallest dragon that was reasonable.
Wing tip to wing tip, he is 18 inches. Nose to tail, he is 14 inches.
I also added pipe cleaner to the upper part of the wings so I could flex them and have them keep their shape.

A detail shot of his missing tail fin.

Which I will make a prothetic for when I can get back to 25 Tuesday and find a suitable leathery fabric.

It is so hard to get really good pictures of all that black. 
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Herman the Garden Gnome Poppet on: May 20, 2008 08:40:22 AM
Those of you following along in the poppet along have seen Herman once before in his skivvies.

Herman is based on Ghilies wonderful poppet pattern, but I changed his proportions a bit to be, well gnome-like, wider all around with shorter arms and legs.

And now Herman all dressed...

Thanks for looking.

(If you are interested, I'm happy to send the pattern changes for the Garden Gnome poppet. Just PM me with your email. You'll still need the original poppet pattern from Ghilie, for all the instructions, if you haven't been assimilated to the poppet crowd yet.  Grin )

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Big Haired Poppet Girl on: March 26, 2008 09:40:45 AM
Some people have seen her already in the poppet along, but I finally have enough posts to include a photo Grin.  So my poppet girl can get a post all her own. 

She's my first poppet, first doll of any kind actually.  She's a bit sassy and a tad dangerous.  (I lost a needle in her head while trying to hide the thread used to sew down her hair. Shocked)  She still hasn't told me her name yet, so we're definitely open to suggestions.  She has told me that she needs some knee high socks and maryjanes to go with this skirt.

Thank you again to Ghilie for the pattern and to everyone else who's made poppets which convinced me to make one too.
