1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / CSI - Gil Grissom on: May 20, 2005 05:58:21 PM
I've already made a CSI:Miami, Horatio Caine T-shirt for a friend, but I want one for myself dammit!
I prefer the original CSI and I want to make a Gil Grissom shirt.  I've been fiddling with pictures but I can't seem to make a decent stencil out of any of them.  Could someone help me out?  All I want is that it actually LOOK like him.
I'm planning on writing "I don't get people" on the back and stencilling a bug, but I'm open to ideas.

My buddy thinks that Horatio Caine from CSI: Miami is the coolest thing in the world.  I don't entirely agree with him but he's been a total sweetheart to me all year and I wanted to make something for him....and I'm enjoying anything that'll distract me from studying for exams.  Anyways, someone here had given me a stencil, but I ended up making something on Photoshop.  Enough babbling, on with the pictures.
Front of the shirt:

And the back:

I'm hoping he'll like it or at least make him smile after our evil Anatomy exam.

Ok, I hate asking for help with a stencil, but I really need one for Horatio Caine from CSI Miami.  I've done a few stencils myself, but I have zero computer skills, and all that I've tried doesn't give me anough contrast or just looks awful. 
I really don't care what the picture looks like, allthough he has to have his sunglasses on.  Like that's hard, he's always got them on.
Thank you,

A friend of mine saw this little guy on a T-shirt online, but they were sold out.  I thought he was pretty cute too, co I set out to stencil him on an old shirt I never wore.  It did turn out as well as I had hoped; I needed five layers of paint to get it white, and now it's really thick, and some bits of cardboard got stuck to the shirt.  Maybe once I wash it, it'll be better.

I made this one quite some time ago.  I know nearly everyone's done this one, but here's mine.

5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / monthly bus passes on: December 31, 2004 11:12:11 PM
I get a bus pass every month to go to school and now I just can't bring myself to throw them out because they MUST be useful for something!  They're about 3 1/2 by 2 inches, made out of a light plastic and every month has a different colour. 
Note that these are monthly, so I don't have tons of them.

Allright, well this was my first ever attempt at a stencil.  I've definitely learnt what to do better next time, but I was quite pleased with the results.  I was actually quite relunctant to part with it.  It was a birthday present for a friend, and he actually believed it to be store-bought!

Doing the hanger-action.  

Close-up,  Ahhh!

Oh, in case you're wondering, the Z? thing is from Jhonen Vasquez comics.  *points at display pic*  He's my God.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Super-easy tie-dyish bookmarks on: December 06, 2004 01:26:33 PM
In an attempt to avoid working on my evil Ecology lab of doom I did a lot of crafting.  One of the things I made were bookmarks.  I've been making these for a long time and people love them.  I never tell them how easy they are to make.  They have kind of a tie-dyish look, but also kind of a veiny texture.  Usually the texture shows up more, but I think that's because I used a different kind of paint.
Here's the batch I made.  Unfortunately one is hiding, he's a little camera shy.

A close up on my favourite of the bunch.

How to do it:
1-Cut out your bookmark from cardboard.  I used a store bought one and traced it.
2-Grab an old binder (or other plastic-type material) and splatter a bunch of paint on it wide enough and long enough for the cardboard.  I used red, blue and yellow on these.
3-Do whatever you want with the paint.  I usually trace a zigzag trhough it.
4-Put the cardboard in the paint and slide your finger over it to avoid air bubbles.
5-Peel the cardboard off and let it dry.
If you want you could punch a hole and add tassels(I made my own, that's why they're ugly).
And now back to work.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / First post: Beatles lunchbox (hopefully w/ working pics!) on: November 07, 2004 01:04:13 PM

Hello there everyone!
I've been lurking around here for a while, maybe replying here and there, but I'm finally posting something.
I've noticed that there are a lot of Beatle fans here, so here my Beatle lunchbox. 
In it's past life it was a Batman lunchbox, but now it's happy shiny Beatlely goodness.  I simply decoupaged a bunch of pictures on there.  For the flower, I stripped the plastic stem so I could poke it through the handle into the lunchbox, then twisted it with pliers so it would stay put.
Please keep in mind, I've had it for over four years, so it's in need of a facelift.  I'm a Forensic Science/Anthropology 2nd year student, so I have absolutely no time to do any new crafts.
