3  denim FLOWER mini dress ! <3 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by taylor.parks on: November 10, 2008 04:41:49 PM

i actually finished a project in one night !
and it happens to be one of my favourite pieces of clothing that ive ever made !
its a light denim mini dress, with a flower on it!

Here are some photos, hope you like it. ^^

Here is the front.
excuse my odd facial expression,
my sister counts to three when she takes a picture, but she takes the actually picture on the second count. Confusing much :S

Here is the back,
again, excuse half of my bra sticking out !
ah well.

and this is a close up of the flower.
there are several layers of backward and frontward denim them crazy stitching, and seed beads sewn by hand.

there you go.
comments and critique welcome !

4  TAYLOR,, and collage of my rainbow filled life. <3 ( IMAGE HEAVY!!) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by taylor.parks on: November 02, 2008 05:16:56 PM

I resently was assigned an art project called, "Project X". here are the bizarre steps:

1. get a piece of bristol board, pencil, ERASER !, and a blind fold.
2. put the blind fold on, and write your name 12 times, and erase it 12 times, all while blindfolded still.
3. then take it off and do WHATEVER you can to make it the coolest piece of art youve ever made / seen.

sounds pretty crazy huh?
well i went all out. here are some pictures.

This is the overall picture of it. I was unsure of putting it online, because its really hard to understand, unless seeing it in person., but i decided to anyways.

this is a side view of it.
as you can see, there are nails put around the perimetre of some of the letters, and then two layers of string weaved in, to show depth and to just be plain cool.

An even moore zoomed picture, wiht a bit more angle.

This is a zoom in of the 'A'.
behind the coloured letters are pencil crayons and oil pastels, other then that and pencil, most of it is filled with odd mediums. everything from paper cranes to a barbie doll. Cheesy

Speaking of cranes, here they are. also at the bottom, you cna see the desending bit of my name, which is done in watercolour.

i really could spend hours talking about this painting, but ill just let you look, and if you have ANY questions i would LOVE to answer them. Maybe ill even follow up on the mark i get.
i sure did !

5  Bacteria like flowers, on a teal scarf <3 in Knitting: Completed Projects by taylor.parks on: November 02, 2008 04:50:15 PM

1. Im posting.
2. What im posting i actually like.
3. Halloween is over so i can get on with christmas stuff !!! Cheesy

I make almost all of my christmas gifts, and so far im on number .... ONE.
HA !
I always swap gifts with a family friend of mine, i love her dearly, and have a great time making gifts for her. in this case its in the form of a teal scarf wtih applique flowers. ^^

this took my a nice amount of time, compaired to my other knitting projects, and i like the funky flowers. ON with the PICTURES !

this is the full scarf, the colour here isnt that visable though, and yes it does curl, which is my least favourite part about it. i didnt use a pattern (purl 1 row, knit 1 row), and i should have done a couple of opposite stitchs on the end of each row. awh well.

this is a close up of my bacteria like flowers. the material in the back is a yellow canvas, then a button and blue quilting thread. the petals (?) are just purple yarn i had tucked away.

I hope you like it, and that she does too.

8  Apliqued Tees!(tumble-weed, and robot monster!) <3 in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by taylor.parks on: September 08, 2008 03:41:32 PM
Here are pictures of two tees that i have been doing a form of aplique on. I bought the tees at Michaels awhile ago planning to do something on them with fabric paint with one of my friends, and instead this is what happend! Enjoy!

This is my monster tee. Complete with speech bubble.

A zoom in of the monster. He has been through the was ha couple of times, so he is a little tattered. He needs a trim!  Cheesy

This is my desert aplique tee. Sorry about it being side-ways. I already got it on the internet like this and was too lazy to fix it. It even has a tumble-weed!

A zoom in of the desert sceen!

And even a zoom in of the tumble-weed! i managed to make this by glumping together a bunch of assorted materials and running over it with my machine a zillion time. i was actually not in the mood to be sewing at the time.... but i love the way it turned out!

Hope you like them. All comments welcome!  Grin xo

9  Back to school; decorated and sewn accessories! <3 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by taylor.parks on: September 07, 2008 10:23:17 AM
     I don't know about every one else, but other then my art class, the funniest part about back to school for me, is making and decorating my supplies.
      This year I had a couple other projects going on already but i managed to make a couple of things.

This is the cartoon drawing I did that graces the cover on my Math and Gym binder.

This is, Randy, the radish. He is on my English and art bonder.

This is my pencil case for this year, and is made with a mixture on cotton and flannels.

This is by far my favourite. I made is this MONSTER PENCIL CASE for my sister. Some o her friends have already asked her where they can get one, which i was quite pleased with. haha.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my creations. All comments are welcome. :]

10  Geometric Acrylic on CANVAS !! :] in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by taylor.parks on: September 07, 2008 09:25:51 AM
This my first post ever, so bare with me.
This painting was done in the course of 4 days.
First gesso was applied to the blank canvas, then each area was taped off and painted with colours that i mixed.
Then the tape was removed and the black borders were done by hand.
im still not sure what im going to do with it, because the canvas is too heavy to be enclosed in a frame, but it cant be stretched over one either.
We'll see.

The top colours don't show up that well, but the top right colour is actually an awesome teal. Hope you like it!
