21  Re: Wall Art Swap 2 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by murbeck on: November 02, 2010 07:24:46 AM
Hi ladies  Smiley  Whyfish received my package a few weeks ago so I am going to go ahead and post since she hasn't gotten to yet.  She had mentioned that she really likes De Stijl, which I admit I had to google, but I decided to go outside my element and work with that.  I thought this would be a really great theme to try out mosaic on since it's all geometrical, and also I was really inspired by her overall style after stalking her so I used mirrors as part of the "blocks" so she is part of the art.  I know, cheesy  Cheesy  

Anyway, here it is!  I hope ya'll approve  Wink

oh and I used black grout to make the lines more prominent, the flash kind of washed the color out making it just look dirty, lol, but I assure you it's a lot darker  Smiley

Yay, I'm so glad it got there finally!  WOO HOO!  I forgot to mention in the card that the tree's little white dots, glow in the dark  Smiley
Yes, some of the salt dough I added some paint into the dough itself to get it that way, like the green on the tree and the pink star (though, it was a way different color paint Undecided ).  here's some pictures I snapped before sending off...

The Merry Christmas Banner made from collected cards from years past...

This is what I need to collect more cards for so I can make one for myself  Wink

A cotton & breezy (since it's warm at Christmas there) hat with crocheted holly attached.  Why does red photograph so rotten!?  Roll Eyes

All 3 stockings, including Bambii's

All the ornaments, before the bells got tangled (I knew that was going to happen  Embarrassed)

I am so glad we agreed on 5 points and VERY glad that we exchanged yummies!!!!  Grin  (hope you don't mind that I posted more pics...)

26  for my little rock star niece in Knitting: Completed Projects by murbeck on: July 30, 2010 08:46:54 AM
After my niece picked out not only chucks (such a great taste) but neon green & orange chucks, I was inspired to make her some really hot fingerless gloves for Christmas this year.  I already wanted to make these gloves for her, but these colors really make me happy  Smiley  I hope she loves them!

I used the Stripe It Up Fingerless Gloves pattern on ravelry.  Free!

27  raven art in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by murbeck on: July 09, 2010 06:02:14 AM
I do believe that this is my first posted paper crafted item!   Smiley  I'm starting to get around!  Wink

Anyway, this was for the Woodland Creature Swap.  My partner listed Ravens as one of her favorite woodland creatures.  I took a pretty raven-in-a-tree sillhouette and took an exacto knife to it.  Then I put it against the glass in a frame that has depth and put a dark green sheet of cardstock in the back (where the photo would go) for contrast and voila!  I am quite happy with the results and am considering doing something like this for my own wall  Smiley

28  crocheted deer bowl in Crochet: Completed Projects by murbeck on: July 09, 2010 05:45:41 AM
Made this for the Woodland Creatures Swap.  It's crocheted with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn, 1 blue + 1 green.  Then I cut out a deer from felt and stitched it onto the bowl.  I LOVE how it came out!  The deer didn't photograph well, but it's in sort of a prancing position and I swear it looks cute in real life  Wink

thanks for looking!

P.S. if you want to try and make one (so easy) then it's the Adirondack Bowl on ravelry.

I received from zombie on friday, but I've been laid up with viral pharyngitis so I'm just now getting around to posting the pics. 

Here's the whole lot, main focal point being the wood sheet cutout of a moose in the woods, a pretty scene straight from my wist.

And here's a closeup of the magnetic note pad (which has the acorn and owl stamped on every other page) as well as a little clay owl magnet.  So cute!

thank you zombie!

I got 2 amazing packages on Monday night.  Unfortunately, I got home from work late that night, and both DH and my live-in BIL failed to mention to me that I got said packages.  Grrr.  So, I found them last night, but then we had this wicked awesome storm that had our power flickering so we kept the computer off all evening.  So, finally I am here to show you my packages.  That I am so happy with!!!!

First off, my package from Padfoot.  She claimed me for a knitted cuff/bracelet and a wisty surprise.  Looky all that she made me!!!!!!

Straight from my wist, these beautiful lacy cuffs.  One in black and one in a very pretty light green.  There is also a matching black crocheted ring.  I'm wearing the green cuff today, which matches my shirt nearly perfectly!

Also, an orange and a brown cabled bracelet.  I just realized I photographed the brown one upside down, which sucks because it's a slighty different pattern than the orange one, but they are both really pretty and well done!

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '________________________________________________________________________________________________')

I also received a wisty surprise from Spotnik.  

GORGEOUS earrings!!!!  I mean it, they are beautiful!  She used sterling silver for the fittings, since I'm allergic to fake metals (thank you!!!) and she went with this beautiful assortments of stones instead of crystals, which is so perfect for me.  I love them!  She used: Dumortierite, Red Aventurine, Amethyst, Carnelian, Malachite, Rhyolite and Feldspar.  I don't know what half of those are, but apparently they are all things that I like (mental note!)  Cheesy  Anyway, the picture!

I don't know if this makes sense, but I also love the way that they hang.  Like, the direction they present themselves.  They don't hide their own beauty, like some earrings tend to do.  Know what I mean?

Thank you both so much!  What great packages!
