1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / who says finals cant be fun? on: June 14, 2006 03:39:24 PM
so for the spanish final this year we were learning about frida khalo and stuff so we had to basically make a self portrait of ourself whether it be a painting, sculputre, or anything and describe its meaning in spanish. So i decided to do a collage. It is actully a big collage of little collages.

here is the whole body

heres just the head

i used magazines for the face then yarn for the hair

arm #1 the sewing collage, the background is a sewing pattern from who knows what and i put the word sewing on a saftey pin and used yarn darners and such

main body... its just a plain background and i added wierd clippings from magazines to make it so much cooler

arm #2 i found the sweet place setting ad in a martha stewart magazine, and then i took leaves from outside and put them on the plate... its a mighty good looking salad

leg #1.. its basically a background of nature and a flower clipping in front

groin area... I had an old encyclopedia from which i made a bag out of the covers so the inside was all s words. I found the word song and made it the background for the music collage. I also cut a guitar shape out of sheet music and used manuscript paper to write music..

leg #2 for this i found a beach painting in a magazine and used shells

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / oh crap... next week is 6 months! on: June 03, 2006 07:51:50 PM
so following my last post.. i have made my boyfriend some other cute things, a stool, picture frame and others but i decided to do something a little different..
It is a box with reasons I love him..
I started out with a shoe box.

then i painted it all blue...

then i came up with 100 reasons why i love him and wrote them all on index cards...

then on the top i cut out letters and used stamps...

then on the sides, and inside the box i used mod podge and put pictures of us and songs and such.

and then once it dried it was complete!

so hopefully any time he is feeling in the dumps then he could just open this box and pick out a reason and feel happy!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 10 minutes, and no sew skirt! on: June 01, 2006 04:53:40 PM
So.. ive seen shirt skirts online before but i thought id give it a twist..

so i went to target and the cheapest men's shirt was like 8 bucks.. pretty good but that was only for an XL the XXL was like 2 dollars more..

So I bought 2 shirts, 2 different sizes, one an XL (the yellow) and one a L (the green) but I dont think it really mattered.

Then I stretched the neck to go over my waist.

Then I took it off, and cut up the seams.

I did this with both shirts then I realized that it was long and i looked like crap.

Then I desided to cut another couple of inches off each one, didnt measure or anything, just estimated, and that gives it that freyed-ish look. but make sure one is longer then the other

Then i just put both of them on and tada!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / regular old stool to a photo montage! on: March 17, 2006 02:12:01 PM
i dont think i used the word montage correctly.. but oh well its a cool word

so my boyfriend and i just shared 3 months together and i made him this stool because I went to his house and he didnt have enough chairs so I thought this would help.

first I bought a stool at Target it was like $15

then i painted it all green (sry no picture here forgot but you will get the idea)
I then added some blue accents so it would match better..

then i mod podged... some pictures of us

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / oh crap... today marks one month!! on: January 10, 2006 07:07:57 PM
So yea.. my newly bf was like hah guess what tomorrow is one month.. (yea i didnt think it was that important) but i didnt want to leave him hanging so i made something really quick..

so did the whole tin box deal.. found a mint box...

by the way. those are the best mints ever!!!

i painted the top black.. so you wouldnt see it.. and wrote his name on it.. sry no pictures

so that was the inside..

instead of painting that part also i just covered it with pictures of us...

and added magnets that say best friend.. (yea he is my bf but before we were going out we made a best friend handshake, corny i know, but it was good...)

then sry i was stupid and forgot to take pictures..

but on the bottom i added a green piece of construction paper and painted lines on it (to symbolize a football field) because we met in marching band.. so yea it was cool

and around the edges on the inside, i added movie tickets to the movies we went to.. rent, producers, and saw 2. yea it was cool.

i also added some fortunes because whenever i order chinese it never comes to the right house.. and he laughs at me for it..

i added a poem and such..

but all in all he tells me he cant stop looking at it.. so i guess i pulled it off..

thank goodness!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Humungo Shirt into nicely fit (plus pretty good tut and pictures) on: August 18, 2005 07:34:27 PM
Ok, so while on our band trip to disney last year, they gave us these shirts... only the only size they had was an xl (yuck) so now i feel fine wearing it! not like a huge tree

so heres what it looked like before...

1. now onto fixing it.. first i found a shirt which fit me well (it was a motion city soundtrack shirt) and layed it over the bigger one and just traced the sides with a colored pencil

2. so once you have your lines just cut up to around the pit area and just cut it off (dont worry about the sleeve yet) so it doesn't get in the way of sewing

3. so then turn it inside out and pin it and then sew!

4. cut straight up so the side of the shirt is a line (sorry its upside down)

5.  now for the pit area... take a saftey pin and pin it to where you want the sleeve to be

6. Almost done! now for the bottom, since my shirt was way too long, i took a saftey pin and put it where i wanted to cut, and just cut the rest off!

7. Enjoy your new shirt!! im sure i will!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / paint chip wallet on: August 08, 2005 06:36:56 PM
so one day i went into home depot for some paint... i wasnt picking out the paint someone else was so i just picked out my favorite paint colors and brought them home... not really knowing what to do with them i made a wallet....

its really really easy, all you need is 2 longer paint chips and 4 smaller ones, and clear tape.

you tape the 2 longer ones together making a pouch for the bills... make sure the colors are on both sides.

then you would take 3 of the smaller ones and put them about 2 cms apart to make card holders and take the last small one and put it on the other side for an id holder.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / how i got an awesome shirt print onto tyvek (mucho pictures) on: August 08, 2005 06:19:54 PM
hey there... after reading the post about tyvek i had to make a bag... so i did and i posted it quite a while back... so recently getting a new sewing machine i decided to make another... this past summer i had a friend who had a shirt that said strictly for my ninjas and he called us his ninjas so i looked for the shirt online and i found the picture...

after realizing that this shirt was not being made anymore i got pretty upset so then i desided to put it on a bag. I put the print out of the picture over the tyvek and traced so it bled through faintly... it was enough for me to make out and it looks fine now.

on the back i just took the ninjas and made them everywhere

so now i saved some of my favorite t-shirt prints on my computer (alot are from urban outfitters in the men's department) and i plan on making more..

comments would be enjoyed muchly!
