1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / help with binding....record journal on: June 01, 2006 11:02:58 AM
I have some old records and I once saw an idea for using covers from records as covers for journals or books.  I really wanted to try that.

I figured I would just use a stack of regular paper, like printer paper.  Would that work?

Also, I was looking at Kinko's to see what kind of binding to use, but not only do they not list prices, which would limit what I could do, but I also don't understand half of what they're talking about, because they don't have pictures.  Can anyone give me some insight as to what might be the best strategy for making this type of journal?

2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / unraveling.... on: November 22, 2005 06:13:39 PM
I came across a piece of plain, blue striped fabric I made a long time ago (the summer before 8th grade and I'm a junior now).  I was going to make it into a skirt for an American girl doll.

I realized on one side I didn't do the thing that you do to tie it off (can you tell I've forgotten everything about weaving, including the terminology?).  Would running over the edge of it with a sewing machine keep it from unraveling on that side?

Does anyone here art journal?

I only recently discovered this art in July but now I'm loving it!  Instead of just writing in my journal, I now incoporate collages, cut and paste souvenirs from the day, photographs, fabrics, etc into each day's entry.  It's very freeing and a lot of fun.

This livejournal community is very inspiring: http://www.livejournal.com/community/jr__nal

And this website is helpful: http://www.aisling.net/

It's fun to post pictures of your pages and things that you're proud of.  Here are some of my recent ones so you can get an idea of what I mean:

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / more computer related.... on: May 18, 2005 09:43:27 PM
I wasn't really sure where to post this.  You know when you take photos and you do that effect on the computer that makes them look like they're paintings instead of photos?  Does anyone know how to do that?  Can I use Paint Shop Pro?  I wanted to do this effect and then print it out as part of a collage project I'm doing.

Sorry if this is in t he wrong place.  I thought paper would be the most appropriate.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Denim on: November 24, 2004 12:35:33 PM
Looking for a DIY-savvy teen girl to write a column called "Denim" for the magazine. You must be able to come up with fun ideas to embellish or otherwise DIY-ify your denim. You have to be able to offer drawn illustrations or photos submitted through email (preferably a mix of the two).

Teen or college aged girls, please, because Smile! is a magazine for teen/college aged girls.  Only one column needed at first, byline and bio will be given, no pay but a copy of the magazine when it comes out, endless gratitude from me.

Does anyone know of any shopping carts that are Paypal-like but let you use it if you're under 18?
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Experience with zine distros? on: April 11, 2004 01:27:57 PM
I'm almost ready to open my business up for business (wow, that sounds stupid), but I also wanted to sell some of the same things on consignment and stuff.  i've always been interested in zines and zine distros.  Has anyone had experience selling through distros?  Which ones?
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Culture swap on: March 21, 2004 03:51:14 PM
So here's my idea.  If I understood the journal idea, this is sort of like that, but with a different theme.  I would buy a sort of smallish notebook and decorate the cover.  Inside, I would write a page about myself, a favorite recipe, and then some quotes, a list of good books, and some other cool lists of some sort.  Then I would add a postcard of where I live and print out a little map of it too.  Then I'd send it to someone else who would fill in their three or four or five pages and they'd send it to someone else, etc.  Then the last person would send it back to me since i started it.  Interested?
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Zine swap on: March 21, 2004 03:47:01 PM
I'm starting a zine, but I want to see some other people's zines too.  If anyone makes a zine and would send it to me for free, I'll make/send decos, postcards, and/or FBs.  Just pm me.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Can I make this without starting an electrical fire? on: March 21, 2004 09:15:15 AM
Take a look at this ubercool lamp from PB Teen.    It's a million dollars (well, 49, but still) so I want to make it with the little parasol I have.  Is there any way I can or would I start an electrical fire?
