1  Simplicity 3618 - My costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by FerretNose on: November 04, 2009 06:54:22 PM
This pattern, S3618, is your basic tart-y looking pirate, red riding hood, French maid, etc getup with a circle skirt, lace up bodice, and puffy shirt. I made a red riding hood costume but did a few things differently than the pattern called for. I'm probably too old to be wearing such a thing... but anyway, It's the most complicated thing i've made, as a beginning sewer. I wore it out for Halloween. I know its a costume and not exactly clothing, but to me was more of a sewing project as i'm trying to learn the basics of garment construction, so thought i'd share it. Thanks for lookin!

Here's something completely out of my norm...  inky layers technique from Bernie Berlin's "Artist Trading Card Workshop" book, and a packing tape transfer.

Boy, did I make a mess while doing this one.

Miss New England, that card is great!

Have2Craft, you totally owned that stamp!!! You made it pop.  And Asphalt Queen, way to use textures!

Since i'm going to be out most of the day tomorrow, i'm posting mine a tad early. Here tis:

This is made of one of those disposable paper coasters. I used this transfer ink spray stuff to get the image onto there, there's some tissue paper collage and verdigris embossing powder on the edges. A fun card.

Those wolves look awesome, Phizzychick. Everyone's atc's are kicking butt, as usual!

Okay, today's my day. Here it is:

Most of the elements on this card are either pearlescent or glittery, but it can't really be seen in this scan. Like the bubbles, they were made with Perfect medium, pearl pigment, and stamp from Cherry Pie. I discoved that I hate setting eyelets. I have those eyelet setters where you pull this spring thingie back and let er' fly, sending a shock through your hand and barely making a dent in the eyelet...  Cheesy

5  Kinda gothy valentine pin/brooch... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by FerretNose on: February 15, 2007 08:52:38 PM
Okay, the heart is made of polymer clay, stamped with Cherry Pie Art Stamps, and colored with pearl pigments. Bead attatched to heart, heart attatched to matching iridescent bow, and bam, very odd looking but pretty thing to wear on my lapel. What do yall think? I wish you could see the colors of the bow better...

Alright, here's mine, kinda late, but oh well...

I learned a couple things on this one: don't put stick glue on vellum, it shows.

Apparently, i'm in a bizarre state of mind these days. This one is even more odd than the last, but also New Orleans themed. It is St. Louis Cathedral in the background. There are some fake voodoo symbols in gold laid over pearlescent red and in the bottom corner. New Orleans historically has an odd mesh of Haitian voodoo culture with Catholocism. I was reading that in the days of Marie Laveau, clergymen would come to her for "advice" on how to get more congregation members. I don't like this card, it's depressing. But I like the colors and the gold "stitches" on it.

Eh, I hope yall think it's alright.

Before I get to mine, I have to say that everyone's cards are just getting more and more awesome- I love them all, but today my fave was have2craft's card. So shhhhparkly!  Grin

Oookay. This card is far and away one of the most bizarre things I have ever made. It was one of those things where you just keep adding and adding, and i'm still not sure if it's done:

This card has sort of a story, if you care to know it. The plantation house on the card was called 3 Oaks. It once stood in the place where the parking lot of the Domino Sugar refinery (New Orleans) now stands. (The lot is actually a FEMA trailer park since Katrina, housing the employees who have still not rebuilt.) My husband works at this refinery, and gets sick of me asking questions about it, as if he knows.  Cheesy Ever since I heard about this, i've been obsessed with it, finding pictures and documents about it. It was demolished by the refinery in 1960, under somewhat secretive circumstances. Should never have happened. It was one of the oldest plantation houses in LA, once even housing Napoleon's troops. It has an irony about it: 3 Oaks was the hub of an extremely successful sugar plantation, it sat right on the Mississippi river. The whole area was founded on sugar. That's why the refinery was built there in 1905 in the first place. So sugar built the building, and sugar destroyed it.

From what I can gather, the lady on the card once lived there during the civil war. I have a tendency to develop unhealthy obsessions with buildings. The curlicues on the bottom are sort of a stylized wroght iron fence I drew. The more uniform looking swirleys are stamps from Tuscan Rose. The rest of it, who the hell knows what I was thinking.
