1  "Scary" shark stencil on shirt. Ridiculously cute. in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ratjen37 on: January 13, 2006 11:45:18 AM
Got this pattern from Stencilry (under "Misc." in Kurt Hasley's stuff).  Reeeeeally easy, and turned out pretty well methinks.  Although it's the first time I've used textile medium and I have to say I'm not impressed... but I hope you like!

Here, FINALLY, is the stuff I sent out to redheadgeek.  (I just got a cable modem, so it doesn't take me 6 hours to upload anymore... hooray!)

I made an earring frame thingy with hooks for necklaces and what have you:

I also made a couple of tins lined with faux white leopard fur (I had fun making these!):

I tried to make an address book, which would have been awesome since it was a binder and you could rearrange the pages, but it was really muggy the day I painted and the paint cracked something fierce.  The tape on the inside also stuck and tore the paper.  Undecided  Oh well, live and learn.

Hope you like!

BTW, this was my first swap and it was so much fun. I got to try new techniques and stock up on pin up girl stuff without feeling guilty. Everything I've seen from this swap is just amazing. I see many more pin up crafts in my future.

Same here!

I'll post pics of what I sent redheadgeek in a week or so, but in the meantime here's what she sent me (sorry, the pic only loaded partially, but you get the idea):

I got a decoupaged box, a kickass apron (it goes all the way around - I'm torn between actually using it for crafting or displaying it in my kitchen!), and a feather boa.  

I LOOOOOVE my stuff!  Redheadgeek was the most awesome swap partner!  I know everyone's said this 60 times already, but I can't wait for round 2... I've already signed up for the 20's flapper swap too!

4  My little brother's duct tape tux! (You're SOOO jealous) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ratjen37 on: June 23, 2005 11:25:07 AM
I was going thru my digital and found this! How awesome is a 15 year-old (now 17... old pics) guy who makes his own tux!
PS - Sorry for the tiny pic - he's REALLY camera shy and that's the only one he'd let me take!

5  My BADASS Michael Caine stencil (lots-o-pics) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ratjen37 on: June 16, 2005 11:52:53 AM
I looooooooove me some Michael Caine  Grin.  This stencil was a bitch and a half to cut, but I did it!  Hooray!  I'm actually embroidering over it, but despite the half-assed paint job it turned out pretty sweet! I saved the stencil and I'm gonna throw him on a T-shirt next.

Hope you like.


PS - I'm also getting Sir Michael Caine inked on my arm next month - maybe this love affair has gone too far....


Stencil (post-paint... looks kinda cool):

Result (yay!):

Bag (pre-embroidery):

I'll be posting the final results under (what else?) embroidery whenever I finish.

6  Harry Potter and Star stencils (plus pattern links b/c mine suck) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ratjen37 on: June 16, 2005 11:45:10 AM
I'm still honing my painting skills, but here are 2 new shirts I made.  The first is from Harry Potter and I got the pattern from (sshhh!) www. sherbet-lemon.com.  They have iron-on transfers to print, and I reversed them.  The next is from http://ainfos.de/downloads/schablonen/index.php (thanks Zombie_Teeth for posting). Looks great, but it's too low on my boobs Sad

Hope you like, and hope someone else can do justice to the HP ones.

7  Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by ratjen37 on: June 02, 2005 12:30:42 PM
I'm not sure if someone already posted this or not (sorry, dial-up sucks to flip thru 65 pages of replies with!), but try bmezine.com for lots of pics of people's ink!

Here's my contribution:
I have a giant backpiece (family crest) in the works, but it's too incomplete to show right now (only 1/4 done Sad).  So here's my newest: my dad's chevrons from the navy.  I love my dad, and what better way to show it!  This was taken the day it was done, so it's still really fresh and oozy (yum!).

My boyfriend is covered in tats (rrowr!), and of course he's not around to get any good pics, but here are some of his (most were drawn by his friend Goat):
Batgirl and the angel are visible in the first one, and the robot (my fave), evil plant, and other girl are visible in the second pic.  He's got lots more all over, but I don't think anyone wants those pics posted!  Kiss

8  Catch-22 (book, not the band) messenger bag stencil... my first stencil effort! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ratjen37 on: June 02, 2005 11:45:49 AM
This is my first stencilling effort, and I have a feeling I'm going to become an addict....

The art is from the cover of my favorite book ever, 'Catch-22' (read it!).  The bag is from the dollar store... just a basic messenger bag. Used acrylic paints, a sponge paintbrush, and a really crappy old paintbrush for the white outline.

In hindsight, I guess the bag should have been blue, but oh well.

Here's the stencil, after taking the cover, making it b&w, and resizing it. (I'm too lazy to post the plane... sorry)

...And here's the finished product:

Thanks for looking!

Oh, any tips on how to get the paint (the red filler on my design) a little more even? Maybe a roller brush? And will ironing it set the (acrylic) paint pretty permanently, say if I used it on a T-shirt?
