This is amazing! This is really thinking outside the box with the way you stitch. I love how it's all over the place (in a good way) like a quick sketch or something. Super effective. I look forward to seeing more like this!  Grin

Hopefully one day I will be non-lazy enough to fix up any imperfections going on in these (like lining up mr aliens neck with his body) and turn them into proper acrylic on canvas paintings. These are pretty much just ideas in the making at this point.

Mr aliens welcome home party.

173  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby beanie. on: January 17, 2008 08:12:29 PM
This is ever so lame compared to what all you amazing knitters manage to make on here but I thought I would post it in case there are some really super duper amateur knitters out there like me that can only knit a square/rectangle and feel like giving something apart from a scarf a go. haha.

So pretty much you just knit a big rectangle the size of a beanie doubled over and also enough for the little bits that fold up around the edge if you want that look. Then you just sew it together with a big "wool pin"?? or whatever they are called. Then tie knots over the corners so that you get the little ears and the "round" shape of the beanie. Then if you like sew through the little bits of wool to make the "tassle" like things and sew a little pattern on the front if you like.

I made one kind of like this for myself ages ago. No idea where it went though haha.
174  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / piratey paraphernalia *pic heavy* on: January 17, 2008 07:43:26 PM
Here are a few things I made for my sons nursery.

First the mirror. This used to be bright yellow with red firetruck wood cutouts on the bottom. I took a hammer and chisel to the wood cutouts and then sanded it, and man oh man was that yellow paint thick. So much sanding for one very pregnant at the time woman.
I bought the wood letters and cutouts from Spotlight (australian craft supply store) and painted them. Painted the mirror blue and stuck them on. Easy peasy.

I just painted a couple of clipart photos I found on a google search onto a couple of canvases. They are both done with acrylic paint.

And now for my fav. I bought this cupboard off of ebay and then painted the doors and sealed them with high gloss clear spray.

I really need to get him a bookcase for all the things he is accumulating so I will probably paint that to the theme of the room. Thanks for looking! Smiley

This is fantastic. I wish we didn't rent so I could put a few of these up. We too have an abundance of skateboards around the house. Mine hasn't been used since i found out I was pregnant and will probably never get used again because I now have no time for such things with a 4month old running my life. This would be awesome with "half" boards" too. For those boardslides gone wrong! haha

177  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Ouch! Love sure does hurt! on: January 17, 2008 06:24:56 PM
The hair was just bought on its own. I think it's meant to be worn as part of a costume or something. It's made form squishy foam. I just fell in love with it for some reason and had to have it. I don't think I ever wore it myself but it finally found a home on the bust. Horray!
178  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ouch! Love sure does hurt! *slightly image heavy* on: January 17, 2008 06:15:10 PM
I hope this is where to put this. She does sit around my house proudly. Anyway here she is! My mannequin. I really wish I had a "before" picture. She was dirty and cracked and ugly as all hell.

Anyway this is after a good cleaning in the bathtub, numerous coats of white paint and face detail. The hair i picked up from a toy store (reminds me of a cute Japanese cartoon, i love it!)

This is after I attacked her with much red paint. Notice the heart is on the wrong side. I am infact a doofus. It doesn't matter what colour my hair is I will always remain the blondest of blondes when it comes to common sense. I actually looked at it and went "here is my left hand...heart is on the left...paint it on the left" (duh jade that isn't HER left!) I realised only when she was totally complete.

The finished product. To get the arrow through i had to drill two enormous holes through her making sure my angles were just right. I then shoved it on through and attached the pointed tip. I thought my blood looked way too fake so I got out the hot glue gun and made her limbs look a little more "ripped" I guess you could say. And made all the rest of the blood on her stick up more. Also there is some glue hanging from the arrow tip (which you can't see unfortunately). I just painted all over this with red paint and got a stencil to paint on the "OUCH!" then gave her a top coat of gloss.

She is now at the entrance to my house wearing a pirate hat. I think she freaked out my landlord. YAY!

179  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Show Off Your Hair! on: January 17, 2008 05:55:24 PM
Thought I would post some pics of some of my old hairstyles. All are done by me except for the very first one which was done by a great guy I used to work with. It's too hard to bleach roots with black ends by yourself that's for sure!
Tank girl phase.

Stint as a blonde.
Pink! I love the fact that this photo was taken right as the TV said ROCK!
Red/Brown with streaks and LOTS of teasing.

Black with blonde/gold bits.

When it was like this I used to get the hairdryer with one of those big round end bits with the spikes sticking out and put it on my head on the lowest setting spiralling it round and round until it was dry then attacked it with massive amounts of hairspray. The result:

Then I cut it all off. (still don't know why that hair was awesome)

Pinup style hair.

My hair is now like the pictures I posted a couple of pages ealier BUT a couple of days ago i made it a purple/blue colour. So pretty i love it!
180  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: zombie baby, vinyl and cernit on: January 17, 2008 04:34:46 PM
i can't find them right now, but there is an artist who sells amazingly crafted zombie babies (sort of like this one!) on ebay...if i find him I'll let you know! my friend has a couple, so I'll ask him to send me pictures to show you guys!

I'm pretty sure the guy that sells the zombie-like babies on ebay is the same guy that sells them on the autopsybabies.com site that ghilie posted before...They be some super scary babies!! I loved reading the "controversy" section. Some people get really offended by this sort of stuff. I say lighten up. Zombies are fun! This is something I may just have to try with a mannequin bust or something. Looks like a blast to make.
