1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Watercolor love on: August 04, 2016 05:29:45 PM
I've been coveting the Watercolor Stencil Portrait + TUTORIAL Basically since it was first posted.

Fast forward to this summer, and my youngest brother was getting married and i wanted to do something special for him.

so i took the post card from his save the date:

and followed this tute.

i wanted there to be more detail do used the poster detail filter in Photoshop. 

the then used a brush for the larger areas and a toothpick do get the fine details

then i went to town with some water colors(with the help of my 2 yr old)

and when it was dry peeled the masking off and there was this:

I put it in the mail this morning. I hope they like it.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / FAUX TAXIDERMY HP STYLE CRAFTALONG on: July 10, 2012 06:11:17 PM
Class : Care of Magical Creatures
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: He was gooD Elf

So the geekery in my house just doesnt stop.  I felt that we needed something a little crazy so I crafted us a house elf.

Hes made of paper mache with bones made of tin foil duct tape and plastic shopping bags.
I mixed all of the flesh tones from your standard red, yellow, blue white and sepia acrylic paints. And put layers and layers to try and make him look more alive.  Then I sponged on tacky glue to make him look more fleshy and less paint-y.
But finally I individually seated  eyelashes .I really think thats what made him look real.  Now all he needs is a name

Any suggestions?

So i found a tee shirt online and it was the total inspration for the new piece of "art" that will be hanging in our living room.

im a bit lazy so i cut the stencil out of contact paper, and then used spray paint

too much? Wink

Its rare when i get an email from my sister. So when i got one with subject line " i need this now!!!!(please?)", i knew i had to try.

she sent me this link

the hat was designed to fit a child 4-8 and well she's 24, and  has a big Irish head like me.

i used the pattern as a guide, but basically had to make it up as i went along.

i used Lambs Pride Bulky and size 9 needles

i hope you like. and tell me what you think
