well i was very sad to only recieve half of the items that AlternaWidget sent to me, but i will endevour to try and rescue the box from certain destruction! i shouldnt think they will destroy the gorgeous outside of it, however, i am very happy with what i did get! and i have uploaded these pictures to show you how awesome a swap partner AlternaWidget is!

the earrings are in the one above, but you cant see them very well, my camera would not take any good photos! but look at that awesome egyptian/ reed fabric headband!

Here you can see the three beautiful notecards i got, one has a lyrebird on it, the other a spider and bird(the bird looks hungry) and the last one has a beautiful sea horse on it! they all came with envelopes too. (also if you look in the corner you can see whats left of a zip lock bag about a quarter full of chocolate rocks, it has seriously, ten left in it! haha

and two beautiful paper cranes, made from washi paper i presume?! they are wonderfully soft, i love the textures!

even though i didnt get all of Alternawidgets package, im very happy with what i did get. its all beautiful, thank you very much!

well i have been working hard so far, and i have a bit of a preview for all you loverly tarot-alongers!
i think having somewhere to show your work inspires you to work harder, not to mention i personally would like to keep this thread moving and motivating, not just for me, but for you guys too!
so without further ado, i present my half way completed card #10- the hermit

i got a package in the mail today!
the man who delivers our packages at 8.30 in the morning knows my boyfriend and I by name! hehe
it was the first time i have had to sign for a package before so i was excited!

it had been searched by quarantine! oooh!

the opened box!

all the goodies!

delicious snacks! these remind me of my childhood, when my oma used to give me these delicious things! Cheesy

rembrandt is my favourite artist, and trillian included a book on the rembrandt house museum! with some palying cards, a postcard and a glossy fashion magazine!

last but not least a cute set of mini clogs with beautiful windmill detail!

this was a fantastic first swap and i feel like i have been spoiled a lot! thank you trillian!

14  collage! Bendigo Australia, small city, big heart. in CHALLENGE 25 ENTRIES by piaochong on: March 03, 2008 05:01:30 AM
There is so much i want to say about my home town. but all i can really put into words is how much i love it. it is entirely unique in every way, from its historic background, to its multiculturalism, to its fresh and ever changing arts and music scene. Even though i have only been living here for six years myself, i would call it my home town.

i have travelled to many countries in the world, even living a year in china. and all i ever wanted when i was away was to return home. i go to university here now, and get involved with the cultural aspect of Bendigo a lot.
originally i made this collage as a sort of preliminary map for a small art quilt, and even collected the fabric for it. however, i had never used a sewing machine before and when i started making it, i actually broke the machine. (from my own misuse of it.) so here is my tribute to my wonderful town, in collage form. one day to be a quilt!

bendigo has an old gothic cathedral, trams, a chinese precinct and is known for the gold rush. i forgot to include its title as the city in the forest, because it is still surrounded by natural Australian 'bush'! also the chinese says 'wo ai' (i love) Bendigo!

i really enjoyed making this collage, and hopefully one day in the future can post up a pic of my finished quilt Grin

15  punkish/ gothish rag doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by piaochong on: March 03, 2008 04:29:34 AM
it is my friends birthday on wednesday, she is turning a good old 24 (hehe) but, like me has a love for the quirky and the odd. once, a long time ago she asked me to make her a gothic doll, like a rag doll. well finally i got around to making it for her, and because i wont actually see her on her birthday, i decided to give it to her early.

anyway, onto the pictures yes?

i couldnt make boots.. so i laced her legs Grin
here you can see her multi coloured hair, done with embroidery cotton, and her embroidered eyes.

finally, a close up of her face, and bird necklace.

the dress was made from a tutorial posted by ghillie in the poppet along thread, but i modified it to lace up in the back. i hand stitched the whole thing Smiley

i hope you like her, my friend loved her and we got into a big discussion about if it was actually possible to dye our hair like that! hehe

16  Ode to my time in China ATC in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by piaochong on: February 21, 2008 10:27:34 PM
well, while i was in china i made a set of three ATCs two i gave to my closest friends before i left, and i only have one left. its number 2 in the set of three. I used many different medias in my set including chinese silk, newspaper clippings, card board and a chinese knot. a symbol of good luck.
i titled the set "zhong guo wen hua" which basically translates as chinese culture.
im sorry there is only one picture. i should have got a shot of the set  Sad.. but here it is!

tell me what you think? this is my first ATC i have ever made, im quite proud!
its alittle warped from all the glue, so sorry about the blurry ness in some parts.

i only have one at the moment, it on my ankle and represents my birth sign. (scorpio) it was done by a most awesome woman who had sea themed sleeves and socks(?) I was 18 when it was done and i don't regret it at all.
dont mind my broken stool and weird angle, its difficult to tke a good photo of your own ankle Grin

done at Skin Ink (formally known as Lord of the rings) in Mornington Australia.

i have wanted to get another one for some years now, but  i just don't have the money!
When people ask me to describe what it felt like i would describe it as if someone was holding a buzzing bee up to your skin. with the pain of getting scratched with fingernails. It seems about accurate to me.
