101  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Cut Paper Wall Art on: September 07, 2007 11:55:43 AM
I LOVE IT!  Those are all separate sheets of paper, yes?

Yep. I cut each sheet (heavy-weight, white paper) to a size that fit the "window," gave them an inch mat/margin, and then taped the finished sheet to the back of the frame.

It's too easy not to try -- go for it!

Inspired by Patricia Zapata's work at http://www.alittlehut.com, I made a simple bit of cut paper art for the wall in my bedroom. It's very subtle against the light blue wall, but it sticks off the wall just enough to tell what it is (I hope!).

The frame is a repurposed frame-like accessory from a big fluorescent kitchen light (I think), so it's not built to hold glass. I'm sure I could get crafty enough to figure something out, but it works as is for now.

Inside the frame windows, I cut out tree shapes on the bottom row and cloud shapes on the top row. I tried to make the clouds look like they could actually be the foliage for the trees that has somehow lifted off the branches, by placing them more or less directly over the tree branches below.

While I'm not nearly as gifted with line and with an exact-o as Ms. Zapata, I enjoyed making this and I am impressed with how it turned out.

What do you think?

This is how it sits on the wall:

Thank you for checking it out.

Hooray for you! Well done on your tote in all its harvesty-gold, avocado goodness. Wink
104  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First Post & First Bag! on: September 07, 2007 10:45:17 AM
Ya-hoo! I made a bag! As far as categorization, it's a hybrid of diaper/messenger/purse varieties with inspiration from Jordy and other talented Crafsters. I needed something more portable than the huge diaper bag we had, and yet something big enough to hold the essentials plus my wallet, phone, nursing apron and a little something to keep my toddler occupied. I am not a purse-toter normally, and I'm not much of a girly-girl either, so I wanted something simple, easy, practical and with a hint that I'm not completely un-hip.

The outside is a blood red wide corduroy and the lining is bright pink with a dark red vine pattern. I used a layer of interfacing to give it a bit more sturdiness. Keep in mind, this is my first bag project and I am still an amateur sewer. Here are some pics!

Here's the front view:

Here's the side to show off the strap and cording around the flap:

The flap is open to show the velcro closure and the lining:

The inside: six pockets and a nifty key ring:

I enjoyed making this and it has stood up well so far to being pulled, hung, filled, and generally abused.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Way cool work! The first one is my fave - it looks like it has the perfect amount of "cozy" and style. I also like the off-center zipper of the second one. A marriage of the two would be killer. Smiley

These look really nice! I know this is an older post, but your work deserved compliment and greyhound adoption can always use a little more attention. (Yes, I am "owned" by a retired racer.) Smiley

Really well done! I wouldn't be surprised if you get folks asking you where you bought it. Smiley
