1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tell me how you really feel. [cross stitch key chains] on: March 11, 2010 02:19:48 AM

These are meant to go into those plastic key chains that people normally put small photos in.

Blue-Green variegated

Gray-Black variegated
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / That's a fair gloopy title. Who ever heard of a clockwork orange? [stencil] 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  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / G'ed up from the feet up ... 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.

4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fried Chicken & Gasoline on: March 03, 2010 05:00:32 AM
Acrylic craft paint and paint marker on a 8x6 canvas panel.
I may also do Baby & Otis.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I heart rainbows. And swearing. (NSFW cross stitch) 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  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Kustom Krafts Gatekeeper # 9951 Cross Stitch on: January 31, 2010 06:16:38 AM
My mom passed away last year and when going through her things, I found a partially finished cross stitch piece and the chart for it, Kustom Krafts' Gatekeeper. I'd like to finish it, but the key for the thread colors is missing. Is there anybody here who could scan it or point me in the right direction? I really really want to finish this piece, but I can't afford to buy a whole new kit just for the key.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Army of Darkness Cross Stitch Bookmark 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.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Pattern / Tutorial Request Using Seed Beads on: December 14, 2009 08:23:13 PM
I have a crap ton of size 11 and 6 seed beads and I'd like to make some bracelets or maybe necklaces with them. A lot of the patterns and tutorials I've found incorporate other beads, but I would like to use only the seed beads. Any patterns or tutorials?
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / George Orwell ATCs 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.
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My Second & Third ATC 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.
