21  D&D mini - aboleth, or as we call her, the Hated Mother in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kerallyn on: March 02, 2009 05:28:13 AM
I painted this mini for a D&D game a few months ago.  I love painting minis, but I'm not very good at photographing them, so I hope you all can see her ok.  The last picture is her unpainted on the stand she came with, and let me say that it is totally impractical to try and mount a metal figure that probably weighs half a pound on a thin, soft metal toothpick, which is why mine is resting on a polymer clay rock.

22  Some of my favorite photos - Image heavy! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Kerallyn on: March 01, 2009 07:29:45 PM
I'm trying to post more of my work on craftster, and I thought I'd like to share some of my photos.  I love photography and I take a camera with me nearly everywhere I go.  I've got thousands of photos and I always have a hard time picking out my favorites, but here are some of them...

Small print disclaimer:  These are all my original photos, and I ask that you respect that and do not copy, distribute, or make use of these images without my permission.  Thank you.

Ok, I'm back from the post office, and I have Salo's package Cheesy  Here are the photos:

I'm very happy with my first swap; my partner likes what I sent her and I like what I got back!  I don't expect my daughter to let me keep the doll for very long, but I think it's wonderful.  I love the pattern in the scarf.  I've never seen broomstick lace before, and I've already printing a tutorial and gathered materials to try it myself. 

Thank you, Salo, for a great swap Cheesy

24  Kerallyn's ATCs - My very first one :D in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Kerallyn on: August 08, 2008 10:59:15 AM
Yay, my very first ATC!.  Also, the first time I've embroidered anything since I was a kid.  It was inspired by pen and ink drawings that I like to make.  I'll have to draw some as well as embroidering.  I actually have a couple other I'm working on in paint and polymer, but I had a long day at my mother's house and couldn't take those with me, so I decided to try this.

I had some trouble getting my information on the back.  It looked too sloppy why I tried to embroidery my email address, and I don't have a pen that is dark enough and small enough to write in such a small space, so I ended up just embroidering my signature sign onto a slightly smaller piece of felt and stitching it on the back to make a pocket that can hold a little card with my contact info.

25  Sooo Cute..... Easter Dresses in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Kerallyn on: July 31, 2008 06:49:15 PM
I love making frilly dresses for my daughter, though I seldom have the time to do now that I've gone back to college, but I made these for Easter in 2006 and 2005.

I bought the material for this one several years before she was even born, but like most awesome impulse fabric buys, it sat on my shelf unused for a very long time.  I had no idea what I'd use it for when I bought it, but the embroidery along the one edge was too beautiful to pass up.  I was sorting through my fabric one day and realized that there was just enough of it to make a dress for my then 3-year-old, but there might not be enough for the size she'd wear the next year, so I decided to use for an easter dress. I found a beaded headband that matched the shade of the dress perfectly.  The sash is just a ribbon with trellis-like cutouts.  I thought it was perfect the second I saw it. 

This one was done the year before when she was two, and is the first thing I ever made for her.  I had seen a dress in a shop with a doubled layer of tulle that had flower petals inside and I loved it, but they wanted $60 which is far too much for a toddler's easter dress.  So I bought a dress pattern and modified it to include the tulle overskirt.  I found perfect peach and yellow silk roses to break up and put into the skirt, and she was just adorable.  (and I'm not biased in my opinion at all  Wink)

As an interesting side note, the yellow dress was made before I got my serger, and the blue one was made after. There is a world of difference when you look down at the inside of the dresses Cheesy

26  Painted topiary basket in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kerallyn on: July 31, 2008 05:41:03 AM
I painted this for my cousin, who I believe uses it now to hold hair baubles and barrettes.  I love topiary and decided to show it.  I got the basket for $1 at Michaels and it had such a lovely result, I can't wait to make more Cheesy

27  Leaf Cane Jar - Now With Pictures! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Kerallyn on: July 29, 2008 06:42:37 AM
This is a little jar I made using my first attempt at a leaf cane.  It's about 3 inches tall and I made it to hold my rings when I take them off in the kitchen while cooking.  This is my first attempt, at making a jar, and a cane both.  Since I wasn't sure how it would turn out, I just used some leftover colors from another project, but I thought they actually worked quite well together and I'm not sure if I would have intentionally put that combination together.  The base was made with marbled turquoise and translucent clay.  I had originally intended to have all the leaves be three-dimensional, but I ended up rolling out smooth and just leaving the lid 3D.  The only thing I'm unsure of, which you can see clearly in the third picture, is the little white circles in the translucent clay.  I've never had that happen with any other projects, and I'd appreciate any suggestions for preventing it in the future....

This is the first project I've posted, so go easy on me  Cheesy
