1  COOKING / Dessert / Bleeding Heart Brie on: March 25, 2010 10:29:06 AM
This past Halloween I really got into it. I decorated absolutely everything in site and tried tons of recipes from Taste of Home. This is one of them. I'm not sure of the link but if you just go to tasteofhome.com and look for bleeding heart brie it will be there somewhere.
But all you really need is:
1 Brie (President is my fave brand)
1 can of cherry preserves
1 tube of croissant rolls

Take the croissant rolls and separate into two halves. Spread both out flat like pizza crust. Unwrap the brie and place on top of a piece of croissant. Next, pour the cherry preserves over top of the brie (but only use half the can at first. Start to pull up the edges of croissant around the brie and pour more cherries. Place the other piece of croissant on top and pinch the edges together. Bake until golden brown and the brie has melted inside. (Follow the temperature on the brie box)

Serve with apple slices, french baguette or just by itself is good enough!

This is a watercolor painting from a long time ago. I've always loved it and haven't ever been able to recreate it as beautiful as the first.
Do you like it?

It's an outline of a heart that bleeds out... Can you see the heart?
Thanks for looking.
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Mrs. Lovett on: March 25, 2010 10:17:38 AM
I absolutely adore Helena Bonham Carter's beauty and am infatuated with her character in Sweeney Todd, Mrs. Lovett.
One day while feeling awfully inspired I drew this up. My first try at two faces of the same person in one page.
What do you think? I know there are things I could fix here and there.

My camera didn't do her eyes justice. They really look deep and sunken in but still big and round just like hers.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / King Tutankhamun on: March 25, 2010 10:13:02 AM
I was inspired to start making dolls after looking at Zosomoto's dolls. I love their creepiness and cuteness! Each one of hers are hand sewn with vintage button eyes! Check them out.https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=99816;sa=showTopics
After viewing these lovelies I wanted to start making my own. I've always leaned toward the dark side and have a affinity for creepy things. Tim Burton especially inspires me. Anyways, the first doll I made was not so post worthy so here's the second doll I made. All handstitched and then I wrapped the gauze (hand dyed) around his scrawny figure. I named him King Tutankhamun or King Tut for short of course!
On with the pics...

I intend to make his little organs and put them in a jar next to him eventually!
What do you think?
I'd especially love comments and criticism from zosomoto.
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hulk Hogan birthday card on: March 04, 2010 05:23:36 PM
A long time ago I made a Hulk Hogan birthday card for my brother's birthday.
He loves wrestling so it was very appropriate! I made it so that Hulk could open his shirt with his arms and "tear" it to reveal the message on his chest!

Hogan knows best...

A looksy from behind...

My happy brother as a size reference.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / not your average papier mache on: March 04, 2010 05:12:53 PM
During my senior year in highschool, my art class had to do papier mache masks. Everyone seemed to be making characters or mardi gras masks; I've always been one who likes to stand out. When my teacher saw this, her face started to mimic and she gave me a disgruntled look. She questioned my point and I told her that "I wasn't going for boring!" I got an A and she said I proved my point.
What 'cha think?

"You don't look so good....."

Close up.... I had so much fun creating the texture in the puke!!!

Being misunderstood is a trait I share with Howard Stern and many other creative persons.
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My niece's mermaid costume on: March 04, 2010 11:18:14 AM
So I know this is really late but better late than never right?
I made alot of costumes this year for Halloween (I'll post those pictures once I get them on a disk.) and had alot of scraps left over. My niece needed a last minute costume and I had already done a mermaid costume once that month so I had this awesome green, stretchy, scale print fabric left over. Out of that, a onesie, and tons of tulle, this is what I concocted with her mom's drawing for inspiration.

And the happy little mermaid herself!

8  COOKING / Dessert / Dirty Cakes for Bachelorette Party on: March 15, 2009 06:29:50 PM

I went to a friend's bachelorette party this weekend and I was recruited to make the dessert. After a scavenger hunt of many stores I finally found the pefect "Pecker Cake Pan" and "Pecker Cookie Cutter". I bought some chocolate sprinkles, food coloring paste and all the works. I was up till 11 that night surrounded by dicks!
On with the pictures

I had bought some new canvas and have been wanting to do a painting for my fiance. After looking through some records today I came across Jimi! Once I looked at the cover I knew I had to paint it. My man loves Jimi Hendrix so I figured it was a great idea!

Tell me what you think!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Tattoo sketch for a friend on: February 25, 2009 05:52:53 PM
Here's a picture of a tattoo sketch I did for a friend. It's in rememberance of 9/11.
I hope he likes it!
I have no previous experience with calligraphy, I just winged it, so any advice is welcomed!
The picture is dark but I couldn't use the flash.
