1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Mini Moleskine Cover Cutouts on: July 08, 2009 06:39:05 PM
So for my best friend's birthday I decided to customize 2 mini pocket moleskines (with the soft covers) with images of things that are meaningful to her.  I found images online, resized in photoshop, transferred the image to the notebook (graphite on the back and then traced it), and then cut away the image using my swivel x-acto.  I then took some solid colored cardstock and attached it to the back of the cover w/ spray mount adhesive.

Images are her chevy colorado, and a breedlove acoustic guitar (for a size comparison, the notebook is about 5.5"x 3.5" roughly)

Thanks for looking!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Frenzied Fastenings.....pendants made of hardware and wire on: July 08, 2009 06:28:50 PM
Hey there!
So, I'm a theatre dork, and do scenic construction, and as such often pull nuts, washers, bolts etc. out of my pockets at the end of the day.  Mixed with some dorky craftiness, and I've created some pendants made of these bits of fastening and different wire.  Also picked up some watch movements at a market, so i've been working with those as well.  Here are pics of a few of them (sorry for slight bluriness, testing out my new macro lens for my D50)...Hope you enjoy.  I'll post more pics and some of the earrings I've made as well soon.

Thanks for looking!!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paper and Packing Tape Wallets (pic heavy) on: May 23, 2008 08:39:24 PM
So, recently while backstage as an ASM for a show at my school I had a lot of time on my hands and decided to create a new wallet to hold non-essential cards that were cluttering up my wallet..you know, all those things like frequent buyer, membership, and discount cards.  I had a pile of scrapbook paper with coordinating patterns, and bought a roll of clear packing tape and got to work creating a little envelope shape with 3 pockets.  I then made similar ones for the members of my run crew, and then started making some standard type wallets that I gave to some friends as gifts.  Enjoy!!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mario NES Needlepoints on: April 22, 2008 10:33:41 PM
So, I've been a longish time lurker and this is the first time I'm posting stuff I've made.  I found the sprites online, zoomed in so I could see all the pixels, and then translated it into squares per pixel.  They're plastic canvas mounted on felt and framed.  Any comments are muchly appreciated.  Enjoy!
