1  Re: Birds are beautiful swap round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by shiftychica on: December 11, 2008 01:33:43 PM
My partner has received and has given me permission to post photos of what I sent her, so here they are:

An owl shadowbox--you can't really see the depth in this picture, but it was hard to get a photo without a lens flare!

Peacock-inspired necklace and earrings, and a Galah (Rose-breasted Cockatoo) magnet made from cardstock.

Ooh, I just found this thread; how great!

I could use some help, though.  I have very short hair, but found this pic of Marilyn Monroe and might be able to do it; however, I don't how it's done!  Any ideas?

Here's what I sent to ShaynaYasha!

Two 24" x 24" fabric-covered boards to hang on her wall; I didn't manage to get a picture in which you can really tell what they are, but here are close-ups of the fabric:

Two jasmine-scented Geisha soaps:

Mahjong tile bracelet:

Barrettes decoupaged with origami paper:

"Shoplifter" tote:

...And a yard of some cute pin-up girl fabric:

4  Owl Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by shiftychica on: February 02, 2007 04:04:40 PM
I did these coasters for round 2 of the owl swap, and just thought I'd share.  Tell me what you think!

They're made from 4in x 4in marble tiles I picked up at home depot.  I did acrylic gel medium transfers using images copied out of Dover's Birds of Prey coloring book(http://store.doverpublications.com/0486259897.html), then coated the tiles with Varathane polyurathane wood sealant.  I had a lot of trouble with bubbles in the sealant, unfortunately, but you can't see them in these pictures.  Finally, I glued cork onto the backs!

From left to right (above):  Barred Owl, Western Screech Owl, Burrowing Owl

From left to right:  Great Horned Owl, Elf Owl, African Wood Owl

5  OWL SWAP ROUND 2 in The Swap Gallery by shiftychica on: October 29, 2006 10:51:23 PM
Here are pictures of the lovely swap I received from Ambraqi!

Two potholders, a totebag, and a stuffie!

Adorable knit (crocheted?) owl stuffie!

The potholders...

The owl detail on the potholders; the picture does not show it very well, but it's very beautiful.

Thanks Ambraqi!!

6  Pin-up Lunchbox in Completed Projects by shiftychica on: October 08, 2005 01:51:58 AM
I admit it, this isn't an original idea--I was inspired by katiekat82's own project (rather more professional-looking, I must say).  Take a look at it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52712.0

So here's my version.  I printed off some Gil Elvgren pics from the internet and used Mod Podge to decoupage them onto a metal lunch box I bought at Michael's.  A little ribbon bow and it made a nice package for my friend's birthday present.  Let me know what you think!

The front...

...and the back.

7  Decoupaged Journal with Postage Stamps in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shiftychica on: October 08, 2005 01:24:36 AM
My first decoupage project ever!!  It's got a few rough edges, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

A penpal sent me a bunch of foreign stamps that she had saved and I thought they would be a nice way to decorate a travel journal.  For the base of the journal I used one of those refill journals that one can buy to go into those leather cases... it works well for decoupage I think because it has the black spine and the cover is a heavy-duty paper.  Now to just find a way to travel...

Anyway, tell me what you think!

Here's the front...

...and the back!

9  Altered Postcards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shiftychica on: October 05, 2005 11:57:38 PM
Well, I've been lurking around here for awhile without putting up any of my work, but I'm finally going to post!  Here are a couple of altered postcards I did awhile ago:

I mailed this one to a friend without scanning it first, so part of the arm of the one to the right was lost in the mail.

I'm not sure I like the "airmail" sticker on there, but I suppose it didn't turn out too badly.

Let me know what you think!
