2  That's a fair gloopy title. Who ever heard of a clockwork orange? [stencil] in Stenciling: Completed Projects by g0rehouse on: March 11, 2010 01:56:13 AM
I found the stencil at stencilpunks.org
The black is slightly sparkly, but you probably can't tell in the picture. Because I like glitter.
It's about 8x10.

I may sew it onto a messenger bag.

3  G'ed up from the feet up ... in Needlework: Completed Projects by g0rehouse on: March 03, 2010 06:18:42 AM

I don't know if you can tell, but the variegated part of the border is also edged in back stitch.

5  I heart rainbows. And swearing. (NSFW cross stitch) in Needlework: Completed Projects by g0rehouse on: February 09, 2010 01:08:39 AM

I know that you aren't supposed to cross large expanses of the Aida cloth, but it just looked so damn pretty! I had to do it. Behold! The back:

6  Army of Darkness Cross Stitch Bookmark in Needlework: Completed Projects by g0rehouse on: January 31, 2010 05:01:04 AM
So, I know I'm not the only one here who will pick up a bag of craft stuff at the thrift store or at a yard sale without even caring what exactly is in it. If I see a few skeins of floss or some acrylic paint or whatever in there, I don't care what else is in it ... it's only a dollar! I'm grabbing it! Well, that's how I got this bookmark strip of Aida. It was really, really long and somebody had done a few clusters of cherries, so I cut those off and finished the edges and had myself a new cherry bookmark... and a blank strip just waiting for me to stitch on. Anyhow, I thought that an Army of Darkness bookmark was needed, one with what Ash was supposed to say upon picking up the Necronomicon. You know, so I don't ever forget them should I be in a similar situation.

As per usual, I need to iron it but haven't gotten around to it.
No border or anything, just text. Wanted to keep it simple.

7  George Orwell ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by g0rehouse on: October 11, 2009 10:46:24 PM
Ever since reading Animal Farm in the sixth grade, I've been a huge fan of Orwell.
I used scrapbook paper for the backgrounds and inked and painted the hell out of them. I made transfers using tape and words/images I'd made in Photoshop. Some have glitter and rhinestones added or ribbon, as well as some drawn elements. They are fairly simple, but since I've started school full time I haven't had much time for crafting, so these are extremely satisfying. I'm still able to create something in the small amount of spare time I have. I'm so glad that I discovered making ATCs.
These are all 1984 quotes, but I'm sure you'll be seeing some more Orwell ATCs from me in the future (especially since I just found a magazine ad with sheep drawings ALL OVER it.)

You can see how much I altered the scrapbook paper ... the one above and the one below are the same cream and powder blue paper.

If I do make more Orwell cards, I'll just add 'em to this thread.

8  My Second & Third ATC in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by g0rehouse on: October 11, 2009 07:05:51 PM
These are the second and third ATC I've made. I've made a whole crap-ton since then, but my camera is MIA at the moment, and I can't seem to figure out my new phone's camera. I used scrapbook paper, ribbon, acrylic paint, glitter, stamp pads, felt, and tape transfers. I made the images used for the transfers in Photoshop.

9  To The Moon, Alice! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by g0rehouse on: March 06, 2009 03:53:16 PM
I just love old TV shows, so that's why I chose that specific title for this brooch.
The port hole is actually padded satin stitch, using glow in the dark floss. I padded it with a piece of white felt, and I love how much it pops out IRL, it actually looks like a bubble window and it glows like crazy in the dark. I didn't use a pattern or a template, just trial and error. I've made two, but I gave the other one to my friend Rose, and she's in Mexico right now, so I don't have a picture of hers. I didn't do the satin stitch on hers, though, I just came up with it when I did this second one. When she gets back, I'll have to snap a pic of it. I think her's is a little bit smaller than this one.

10  The Mad Hatter's Tea Party Brooches in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by g0rehouse on: February 21, 2009 02:35:43 PM
I know these have nothing to do with Through the Looking Glass, really, but I thought the name fit since they would fit in at any bizarre tea party you might suddenly find yourself at.

Made with felt, embroidery, lace, black sequins, black glass seed beads, and rhinestones.

Made with felt, embroidery, rhinestones, and smoky silver lined glass seed beads.
