I made these for a recent swap. They were my first attempt at chocolates. They are true to life size. I made a cute little box to send them, and had them sitting in little cups to make them look like an actual chocolate box. Here you go, hope you like them!

24  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Goddess Tree of Life watercolor on: January 24, 2009 10:27:13 AM
I did this for an angel package, and I thought I'd share. It's my interpretation of the tree of life. Done in watercolors with irredesecent pigment powder accents. Hope you like it!

25  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Don't meddle in the affairs of dragons..... (Drowning in pictures) on: January 24, 2009 09:08:38 AM
For you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!! Ha. I made this little guy for an angel package I just did. He's my first draggy out of polymer. I learned quite a bit while doing him, one is that you should keep your nails cut back FAR or you have to battle nail marks all over lol. He is hand sculpted over a tin foil base for the body, using black sculpy premium. I used two irredescent seed beads for his eyes, and then brushed a gunmetal looking pigment powder onto him before baking. When he got out of the oven, I coated him twice with the sculpy satin glaze, so the gunmetal pigment would stay on better. He's a little under 5 inches tall, and maybe 4 inches wide at the base? I guess I should've measured him!!! Anywho, he flew away to live at his new house, but here's some pics I caught of him before he left! I hope you enjoy, and C&C are ALWAYS welcome. I would love some tips for sculpting something like this rather the cutesy food stuff that I have been doing.

26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hand Painted Metallic Leopard Print Box on: December 28, 2008 06:06:07 PM
For Christmas I painted this box for my sister, and filled it with sewing supplies. Her living room is done in African animals, but she's kind of glitzy, so I used metallic paint with brown accents. The base of the box is brown paint with the metallic paint overlayed. I'm going to put a layer of the triple thick spray glaze for protection, so it will be a little more shiny. The weather has been crappy so I had to give it to her without it lol. Enjoy!! Smiley Smiley

C&C are welcome! I had alot of fun doing homemade gifts this year. I didn't have alot of money, so the homemade aspect was big this year, but everyone seemed to enjoy their gifts.
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Hand Painted Dragon Storage Box on: December 28, 2008 05:58:37 PM
For Christmas, I handpainted this box for my sister, and filled it with stationary supplies. I used a metallic paint for the dragon and the base of the box, it was called Champagne. I really like it, it's very shimmery. The background is just black acrylic paint. It has the triple thick spray glaze over the top of it for protection. I really love that glaze, it makes hand painted boxes look great, and helps preserve them. Hope you enjoy!

28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hand painted Dragon shirt on: December 28, 2008 04:02:44 PM
I had no idea what to get my BIL for Christmas, but I knew that he loved my dragons that i paint, so I decided to make him a shirt. I sketched the dragon on first with a white charcoal pencil, and then filled it in with red fabric paint. Hope you enjoy Smiley Smiley


29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hand painted Winged Heart Maternity Shirt (Now with the correct pictures!) on: December 28, 2008 03:52:58 PM
Here's another of the maternity shirts that I embellished for my sister for Christmas. I sketched the heart and wings on first with pencil, then used a brush and fabric paint. I went for the more sketchy look, I wanted it to look like a sketchbook doodle. Hope you enjoy it Smiley



(Sorry about that, it now has the right detail picture!)
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hand Beaded Goddess Maternity Shirt on: December 28, 2008 03:46:14 PM
My sister is pregnant, and due in February. She didn't have alot of different maternity shirts, so I decided for Christmas I would embellish a few for her, since maternity clothes that aren't HIDEOUS tend to be massively expensive. So, I hand beaded this goddess onto the front of this shirt from her. It's got a light blue edge, a dark blue inner line, and an orangey gold swirl in the middle. She adored it, tho I'm not sure that might have to do with hormones lol. Anyway, hope you enjoy it!! Smiley Smiley Smiley
