1  skanky slips + Teddy Bears + old smokey curtains in CHALLENGE 2 ENTRIES by LiquidScissors on: June 25, 2005 03:52:14 PM
Hey.  I decided to challange myself with this one by using stuffed animals for the main part of my outfit.  I bought THREE large stuffed animals

a old frilly curtain

and a couple old cheap slips

I didn't use one of the slips or the stuffed doggy, but I did use all three bears, and they didnt offer me as much fur as I though they would.
Here is a picture of the unstuffing process (the messiesy thing I have ever done)

after I destuffed them all I un seamed all the seams, which was fun, lots of ripping and hand hurting fun.  I ended up having a bunch of odd sized peices of extremely messy and sneezy bear fur.  I then had to patch work them so they would make bigger peices of fur-fabric, so I could do the design I had in mind.  I liked the idea of a halter with a see thru back, so I did the back with the curtains.
The skirt is assemetrical with the pink and white slips, and the curtains.  There is a fur (rim?) haha, I dont know how to say it, but you can see in the pictures.  I added an bear eye to the halter, and also a bear eye as a button on the skirt.

this is the side view, the back also has corset lacing, with little bows, just so its more adjustable, so that is what the pink ribbon hanging off is.

This is the whole front of the outfit, the halter doesnt look the best on me, because I have a unusually large chest, so it makes me more burley looking.  I think on a normal average women tho however it would look nice. 

this is a close up of the back (sorry its a bit blurry?)

and a close up of the halter, detail and whatnot. 

here is the eyeball button on the skirt.

This was a fun project, I think stuffed animals have more uses then I thought.  I plan on making a purse with the puppy.  This was mostly hand sewn, and then done over with a machine in a couple places.  It reminds me of something a stylish eskimo would wear to a wedding.  haha.

Thanks for looking!

2  Checkerboard Bulletin Board by LiquidScissors in Craftster Craft Challenges by LiquidScissors on: June 01, 2005 02:42:25 PM
I didn't take a before picture of what I bought.  BUT I bought a checker set, a cheaply made corkboard, thumb tacks, and one of those doodlepads that when you pull up the film it erases, and made a better corkboard/message board thinger.

I glued the checkers to the thumb tacs, and glued the scribble pad onto the checker board which was glued onto the old corkboard, which I de-framed and cut into a smaller size.  =)

I spent 4 dollars!  yay!

So the pictures I took didnt turn out sooo well, and I packaged it up allready, so they are a bit blurry.
a shiney one...

and a really blurry one...

I took apart the frame, and only sent the print, so it wouldnt be too expensive to send back and forth.  Hope that is okay.

the boy is about to get a shot and is looking at the dr's certificate, as if to make sure he is really a doctor "before the shot" is the quotation at the end.  Its pretty funny, for a goodwill find.  Even the women that worked there were surprised to see it.  hehe.

4  Cassette Tape Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LiquidScissors on: May 05, 2005 06:34:52 PM
Okay.  So.  I have a friend who is *obsessed* with Hanson (YES still!)  I dont ask why.  Anyway.. I ordered a couple Cassette singles off ebay, so I could make a couple of those single journal thingys... found here -->


and decided I should do something with the Tapes as well.  Since I wasn't going to be using them.  ever.

Now these are some bulky earrings, but my friend is very eccentric and would wear them I would hope. 

I just drilled three holes on the edge of the tape with a dremel tool.  Then attached three earrings fish hooks.  I figured the more holes you have in your ear the better to hold these heavy suckers up.  I have 3 holes in my ear lobes and so does my friend, so I made 3.  But you could do 2, or 4...or 2371 depending on what you have to work with.  The more the merrier.

This is a good idea for any kind of bulky earrings you desire to make! 

I hope my friend likes them.  I havent fineshed the second one yet, but was really excited to post it, since I havent posted anything for a while.

thanks for looking!

I think its down to these few

I like the toaster.  That coffee cup in the reflection is hypnotising me!

So....have we selected an image? I bought a standard 22" by 28" (I think that's the measurements) piece of posterboard that I figured I could just cut to size, will this work? The only thing that concerns me is different thicknesses of paper...but thinking about it, that might even just make it cooler and more original.

yes I thinkthat is fine.  I wouldnt mind different thicknesses.. You'll probably have to glue each peice to a backing anyway, unless we all plan on taping them together.  I figured you all could just glue down the peices (or tack them down or whatever) to a second peice of cardstock/etc.

Okay.  I couldnt get that phone that everyone likes, to be square without distorting the image, so I found a couple of other phone images that I could get to fit, and also I found a couple of the artwork images that fit.  So please see if we can try to pick one of these.  Its hard to find an image that will fit the gridlines, it has to be perfectly square.  These were some of the images that did not distort so much.

(kinda a joke, hehe)

I like the toaster actually the more I look at it, how it has the refection thing going on.  But anyway... are any of these interesting?  I hope so... I want to get started soon.

I like the Madame X one as well, and the phone too...
Well this is getting kinda crazy, haha.  How about we all pick ONE picture each that we would like, and then can vote on one from there.  Is that okay with everyone?  Otherwise we'll just keep adding more and more images and making it harder.

I am going to nominate my original idea...

Everyone else please submit one picture so we can get this started!!!

here is an exsample of it split into 9s, but it could be split into multiples too, if it helps people draw it out, as long as it gets cut into these 9 peices

but I dont think thast what your talking about now that I re-read what you said.  haha.  I think each box will essentially have the same picture as the image, then all that white space can have whatever, as long as the image comes through.  blah.  I cant think right now.

Well that kinda sucks, it would of been nice to know if my swap partner even liked what I sent back to her.  I put a lot of thought into everything, and was really curious of what she had thought of it all.   I wonder if I took any pictures?  I think I might have, but have a feeling I didnt.  =( =(

I made JackieM some magnets, a platypus pin cushion, a potpourri/mail/whatever holder, and more marble magnets.  The other magnets were felt with stuff cut out of a tin she sent me and other odds and ends.  

Here is a picture of what she all sent.

Hope everyone had a good swap!!!
