1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Ellis Paul shirt on: February 03, 2007 05:53:34 AM
I haven't posted or even browsed this site in about two years! I think I'll be around a bit more to find craft ideas for my students.

My favorite singer doesn't have t shirts so I made my own. I used a construction paper stencil and a Clorox bleach pen.

I had an eye infection. That's why I'm hiding Smiley

Thanks for all the suggestions! I will bookmark this.

The furniture is mine and I was actually thinking about painting it somehow. I'm not much of an artist so it will have to be relatively simple. My desk has purple fabric draped over it now to liven it up so I like the idea of using fabric to add color.

My brother is an electrician so I can probably do ANYTHING with my lighting Smiley

I bought some Christmas lights on clearance for this idea: tack clear lights on the wall and then hang a tapestry or large rectangle of fabric (flat bed sheet?) over it. Then your room glows in the color of the fabric. I saw this in a friend's apartment.

The room is set up wierd. It's actually a finished attic, so there are slanted walls and the stairs go up the middle of the house, so it's separated into rooms, really. I think the small side will be for sleeping and the large side will have my desk.

I am busting with excitement.

In May, I graduate and move into my brother's top floor. My first real place of my own, first time paying rent, and my first permanent home since college started (I loathe all the back and forth and the fact that my childhood home no longer feels like home bc my bedroom becomes a storage area/laundry room when I'm not around).

So my floor at my brother's place... white walls, white carpet. All my furniture is white, bookshelves, desk, dresser, armoire. It's a gigantic blank palette!

I've begun brainstorming ideas. I think I want shades of blue and teal to make it peaceful, but I'm obsessed with green lately. I'm not sure if I want to paint and then one day leave my brother with a blue/green girly upstairs.

Just wanted to share my excitement Smiley I haven't been here in months bc student teaching has kept me so busy!

my desk is quite ugly and the paint is messed up.
i just draped some fabric over the top of it. it's actually a folded duvet civer (i think). it sort of fits like a table cloth, but there's only overhang on the sides, not the front.

cut slits around the neck and weave ribbon through the slits so you can tighten it up,

I don't really get that part...

But the flapping sleeves is something I might try!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help making a costume for tomorrow night on: September 15, 2005 03:00:19 PM
I'm going to a "heaven and hell" party tomorrow night and I need to somehow create an angel costume. I'm not gonna go too over-the-top bc I haven't talked to anyone else about what they're wearing.
So I have a large white men's tshirt and all of my stenciling supplies. I'm going to stencil some wings onto the back of the shirt. But the shirt is large and I am small. How do I make it fitted while still having wings on my upper back?
I know I could cut strips in the sides of the shirt and tie them together, but then what about the baggy neckline and sleeves? I have no sewing machine and if I am going to cut & tie the top of the shirt it has to be really easy bc I've only reconstructed a couple times. I have some Heat n Bond tape and some ribbon, too.
My other idea is to have my roomie stencil the wings right onto my back and make a backless shirt (or one with a skinny horizontal strap/tie). Any simple ideas on making a shirt to do that?
I gotta make it tonight bc I'll be at student teaching all day tomorrow... Please help me make something pretty instead of something crappy :-P
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to make my fridge pretty? on: September 15, 2005 02:49:53 PM
Maybe I could hot glue marbles to it! That could be pretty. I've been real busy with student teaching lately so I'm probably not gonna get to decorate my fridge for a couple weeks Sad But next time I go home I will raid my mom's craft closet for some things to glue to it. I love fake flowers so maybe I could work those into it...
