1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / victorian wall mural on: October 01, 2013 01:15:24 PM
This is a combination of a mural and a collage with all sort of things that inspire me. It's on the wall in my craftroom. I made the design myself, after an old victorian-looking mirror. Hope you like, let me know:) Produced with a little help of a beamer. 3 layers of off white paint.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spring/Summer jacket on: October 01, 2013 01:06:18 PM

This is a summer jacket I made for last season. It started out with a pattern but I made a lot of alterations along the way. It does look a little short on me (I'm a tall girl from Holland) but in general I do like the way it turned out. The colourfull fabric is from the Albert Cuyp market in Holland, at 5 dollar a metre, a real bargain. It used to be a more exensive fabric, but due to a little weave error it was this low a price:) Happy me.

Comments are allways appreciated, let me know what you think:)
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lola the Fox, Lars the Wolf and Nori the Panther on: October 01, 2013 12:53:32 PM
Last weeks I've been making these design plushies, after my own pattern. It started with a fox, named Lola. Soon came the wolf and the panther. They are completely made from recycled materials, like old sweaters and fabrics:). Let me know what you think!

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland Nesting dolls on: April 01, 2010 04:44:11 AM

I made these nesting dolls before the huge AliceMadness already, but thought I'd post them now Smiley
They were plain wood, painted with acryllics. I tried to stay loyal to the original designs, not so much the Disney version. The littlest one measures 2 cm's. The Drink Me bottle is slightly hand-carved to create the bottle shape.

Alice is holding the flamingo, cuz they are golfing with those poor creatures Wink. The little alice is holding a tiny mouse.

I'm kinda smitten with them, might keep them for myself Cheesy hope you like them too!
Thanks for looking, comments and criticism are always appreciated.  Kiss

Thaks ppl for the lovely comments Smiley

The third bird is a bluethroat, a not so common bird, but very cute in real life Cheesy

I bought the Matryoshka dolls in a local crafts store. Maybe you could check the internet for them? I'll bet they're sold somewhere Smiley

Wow, it looks wonderfull! Lucky birthday girl Cheesy

What technique did you use?? I'm makin some Art Nouveau drawings at the time, and I'm not sure which medium to use. I bought this comic drawing paper, 'cause I think watercolour paper sucks the ink up? And I was wondering what kind of pen you use? Just dipping with acryl ink? I first worked with a fountain pen, but the ink that I used is waterdilutable, so no good in combination with watercolours.

Hope you can help me out!
Thanks in advance:)

Made these for a swap. Just plain wooden matryoshka dolls painted with acrylics. Cause of where my swap partner lived, I chose for common european birds.  Hope you like Kiss!

Thanks for the compliments!! Cheesy

In a year I want another slightly different one on my right shoulder. And eventually a full back piece Grin. My mum deff doesnt like that idea however Wink

I wasn't sure for a long time about the place. First I wanted it under my collarbone, but I decided against it. This place is much more convenient and easely hidden for work Wink

I'm very curious at your going-to-be tattoo Mouser! I love the meaning behind the idea! I always like tattoos more if they mean something special for the owner, especially if that meaning is a bit hidden Smiley
