21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Phoenix Feather Illustration on: February 25, 2013 11:49:02 AM
Ever since I was a kid I have loved line art and op art like drawing, I was making all kinds of elaborate doodles back before "zentangle" was a term on everyone's lips. So lately I have been experimenting with using the op art style of abstract line design, along with subject matter that is more representational. So I made this illustration of a phoenix feather.

22  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Little Dinosaur Illustration on: February 19, 2013 06:41:09 AM
I have been working on a few smaller projects lately to try different subject matter and to get better in general, so in that experimentation I came up with this little guy:

The pic is a little muddy, sorry about that, but I think you can see most of the details, the colors are a little more vibrant in real life.

Here are some process pics, because I love to see the stages of progress! It's cool to look back it see how it transformed from a sketch to a fully colored illustration.

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Wild Encounters: A scrapbook page from about Disney's Animal Kingdom on: February 17, 2013 11:49:57 AM
I have been to Disney World twice now with my girlfriend and have yet to scrapbook any of it  Angry So, I got started by making this page of all the characters we met at Disney's Animal Kingdom. We find it exceptionally fun to meet characters and act along with them. It's akin to the kind of fun we have when we go to re-in-actor parks and try and make the re-in-actors laugh.

24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock Dog on: February 17, 2013 11:40:50 AM
I made this sock dog for ErinAquaheart for valentine's day. It was the first time I have made anything besides a monkey out of socks, and I think it turned out cute! The eye caused a tear in the fabric so I stitched him up and gave him a scar, which gave him some street cred.  Grin

25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hand Beaded Skull Hair Bows on: February 17, 2013 11:35:36 AM
Last Halloween I got some awesome ribbon and I have been dying to make something with it. So, finally got around to beading some skulls to use as center pieces for some hair bows.

26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cupcake Mini Hoopla on: December 29, 2012 03:18:56 PM
This Christmas my family and did some crafting together to celebrate the season, during one session we made mini hooplas (4 inches) Here is mine!

This was my first Hoopla! It was super fun, I definitely plan to make more of these!
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pink, Blue, and Black Granny Square Scarf on: December 24, 2012 08:59:40 AM
I have had this stack of granny squares hanging around for a while and I finally decided to finish the project.

28  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A Small Series of Koi Fish Paintings, Now with another set made by ErinAquaheart on: December 23, 2012 12:20:52 PM
My Girlfriend (ErinAquaheart) is working on a giant project involving painting a large floor as a koi pond. Watching her made me want to try and paint some of my own koi fish. This little series of three paintings is my result. (sorry the pic is a tiny but blurry)

**My Girlfriend posted hers on this thread they are on page 2, make sure to check them out too!**
29  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Alchemy inspired ATC set with hand beaded and embroidered case on: December 18, 2012 07:18:26 AM
I have recently been studying alchemy for some art work that I am working on and I was inspired to make this ATC set. The front of the case is beaded with a burst of four different colors symbolizing four stages of alchemy: The blackening, The Whitening, The yellowing, and The reddening. On the back of the case I embroidered the alchemical symbols for earth, air, water, and fire. The ATCs on the inside are all color studies for the elements of earth, water, air, and fire. I used lots of different media to create this: Felt, beads, embroidery floss, colored pencil, acrylic paint, water color paint, metallic guache, and sparkle glaze. It was mainly an exploration of color and media to get me rolling on some bigger projects.

30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hand Stitched Felt Owl Pins / Brooches on: December 18, 2012 07:10:54 AM
Not to long ago I made a tutorial for these and posted it on the Needlework board. (I never know where to post these since they are jewelry, needlework, and sewing in general.) I made three more of them this time experimenting with some bolder colors and patterns, I am pretty pleased with the result.

Here is a process pic:
