1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / Picture loading a success! Wait! No it wasn't?! on: November 21, 2008 09:56:11 AM
Hiya -
I am trying to load some pictures into my member gallery on craftster.  The process works fine, it tells me it was a success, but then the picture is nowhere to be found!  Am I doing something wrong?  Thanks for your help!
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / wheel questions on: June 03, 2007 05:50:43 PM
Does anyone know anything about this wheel? My mom bought it because she thought it was pretty, but wants to get rid of it now, because it takes up too much space.  We are not sure of what it is worth, or if it works, and it is pretty old.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/iseepretties/410590290/
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / first polaroid transfer. on: May 05, 2007 10:37:24 AM
Hey,  I bought a polaroid landpack camera on ebay, and am trying out polaroid transfers.  Here is my first one, let me know what you think.  And if anyone else does this, do you have any tips on getting more vibrant colours? Thanks!
4  CANADA / Ontario / Anyone for Ryerson this September? on: March 03, 2007 08:15:14 AM
Heya, I tried searching for this first, but the search engine is down Sad  redirect me if necessary.
  Are any craftsterers going to Ryerson for fashion design or fashion communication this fall?  I am, (hopefully!) and am working on my portfolio right now. 
  Has anyone taken either of these programs?  I'm still deciding what one appeals more to me.  Suggestions?  Thanks!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / comfy, easy, simplicity jumper on: November 06, 2006 06:39:25 AM
This is from Simplicity pattern 4097 - It was super easy to make, I didn't even follow the directions.  It probably took under an hour to make after I cut it.  I made it with a light weight grey wool, that is super itchy because I was too lazy to put the liner in.  It is okay with tights on though.  And if I don't let it touch me.

And here is a not very good picture of it on me.   The coat is Very Easy Vogue pattern V8123.

Now I think I am going to try the "Built by Wendy" pattern #4111.  Making clothes keeps me out of trouble  Wink
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / If at first you don't succeed, ask someone on Craftster. on: October 12, 2006 05:42:10 PM
Why is this happening?

After I start to wash the screen, the image peels off!
I am using speedball photo emulsion, and I usually use a more industrial brand.  The industrial brand comes in a vat, and I never use it all before it expires, so I thought I would try something different.  I have a light table, and exposed it for six minutes, thirty seconds.
Am I putting the emulsion on too thick?  
The emulsion also curled away at the edges of the image.
Any help would be appreciated!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I turn my camera on..... on: October 04, 2006 07:33:32 PM
Here is my latest painting, it is mostly acrylic, with whatever else I could grab.  It is not quite done yet, but my neck is telling me we are done for the day.  Comments are appreciated, it is for an art show in November.  Thanks!

  And here is one with the flash off,  I still can't take good pictures of  art!  Still looking for the secret............
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / transparency question on: September 04, 2006 12:07:46 PM
I bought a new printer/copier/scanner that i am going to use to print my artwork and photographs onto transparencies with.  Then I can use the transparencies to screenprint using the photo-emulsion method.  I don't want to waste transparencies by printing them twice to get them dark enough, (doubling them up)  So I was wondering if I exposed the screen for a little less time than my usual six minutes, that would help?  Kind of like a fine line thing.  Does this make any sense?  Help would be loved.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Patron Saint of Shiny Things on: June 01, 2006 02:27:41 PM
My latest painting!  This is probably totally sacrilegious, but I have patron saints on the brain lately.   I would like opinions please!  You can be critical too, I don't mind.  

a close up without flash

And how can I take good pictures of paintings?  I find taking a photo of art work is hard, because I lose a lot of detail.  And what kind of art would you categorize this in? ( Please don't say bad or tacky, even though I said be critical, I am still a wee bit sensitive)
10  CANADA / Ontario / OCAD photography program on: May 26, 2006 10:33:41 AM
 Hi, just wanted to know if anyone has taken photography at the Ontario College of Art and Design, or any other program there.  I am thinking about going back to school in September '07 - and am checking out different programs.  I am definately leaning towards something in the artistic field, because I have been an autoworker for the past seven years, and my brain is threatening to leave me because it is so bored.  Thanks for any info!
