1  Re: "What do YOU Journal About?!" Ideas thread! in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by antigone on: January 18, 2009 03:20:58 PM
I just finished my fattest journal ever. I've had this one for about two months. It contains lots of text, photos from my birthday, flower petals, collages, drawings. It ends with the death of a loved one. A lot of sadness right now.
I want to start my new journal on a happier note, with some light....

2  Some birds sing alone in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by antigone on: September 16, 2008 03:42:13 PM
some birds sing alone....
and I think they like it that way.
Nobody's there to complain
or say you're not singing good enough,
or you're singing too loud,
only sometimes
they want to sing with somebody else.

3  Two books in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by antigone on: September 15, 2008 01:51:27 AM
This is me stepping out of the polymer closet
(or something like that), so, hello!

I made these books a few years ago; the one on the left is the first book I ever made!

4  I made myself a "me" book! (picture heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: September 13, 2008 01:22:00 PM
After having seen lots of boyfriend books on jr_nal I decided to make one for myself. Only mine is a "me" book. (Not that I'm in love with myself.)

Okay, why are the pics so small? I'm using Craftster Photo Hosting.
Here's the link to my Flickr photo set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157607267968182/

and here is my jr_nal post with LARGE images: http://community.livejournal.com/jr__nal/4213398.html

all images, text etc are (c) me (except the fairy paper on the cover).

Please come visit me at www.afiori.com Smiley

Jellyfish, they sparkle

6  Handbound album with photos and beach find in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: July 12, 2008 11:29:58 AM
Two weeks ago I was suddenly whisked off to France and got to stay in an amazing apartment by the ocean. I took lots of photos of shells and scenery, and today I made a beach-inspired photo album.

Materials used: structured paper, thread, a bit of glue in the spine, thick scrapbooking paper. I attached the photos with double-sided tape. The shell on the cover had a natural hole in it, so I just strung it on waxed cotton thread. The fleur-de-lis is a brad.

I improvised the stitching on the cover. The pages were bound using the coptic stitch.

7  My new fairy(tale) themed planner! *lots of pics* in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: January 08, 2008 09:29:52 AM
I work a bit as a teacher and just finished making this planner. I cut and printed the pages myself, and the cover was made from scrapbooking paper with my name computer printed. The planner was spiral bound at a copy place and has a frosted plastic cover.


Tabs cut from a file folder and corners rounded:



Class attendance / results list (my own photo as a background. There are several others as well.)

Lesson planning (subject & topics to the left, homework / assignments to the right):

Blank pages (I hate lines):

Squared pages (just a few):

Red envelope pocket with blank notes (unnecessary to rip out entire pages) and contacts list (courtesy of www.diyplanner.com) to the left:

Back cover with sparkling fairies! Cheesy

From the scraps I made a notepad, size 14.5 x 19 cm.
The planner is 16 x 20 cm.

Notepad / sketch pad:

8  my computer-carrying super tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: August 04, 2007 11:30:12 AM
I made a tote to carry my laptop and lots of other stuff. It's not very big, 33 x 38 cm, but magically roomy Cheesy I could fit some books and a sweater in there too without problem.

Edited to add: there are so many pockets I forgot to mention two of them. See the little black one to the left of the laptop? There's one tiny secret pocket on each side where I can fit, for instance, a USB memory stick.

It looks a bit long and narrow in this pic but there isn't really a lot of difference between height & width:

9  I <3 my new purple purse! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: January 27, 2007 05:49:53 AM
I made this bag yesterday from a sketch I drew. It's not big but holds a LOT of things and I think I came up with some pretty good solutions.

(This is the first time I used a magnetic snap and it worked well. The brooch is from Hennes.)

...you can pull out a pencil holder!

...which is on the back of a hanging zippered pocket!

here I've turned the lining inside out so you can see the hidden pocket beneath the hanging pocket - perfect for a journal / notebook or some craft supplies! There's also a key holder.

and finally, on the opposite side, mobile phone + mp3 pockets:

10  Red & gold bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by antigone on: January 09, 2007 06:21:17 AM
I just finished this bag - finally, after messing up the lining four times! Gah!

I wanted it to be a bit jewel-like but still practical and suitable for everyday use. No pattern.

Inside: mobile phone pocket, mp3 pocket, 2 pockets for pens, key holder (black ribbon with clasp), one larger pocket which you can't see in the pic.
