1  Re: Dinosaur Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Velvetdragon on: August 05, 2009 07:56:53 PM
Turns out she's using the camera for school and a stop-motion film, so I don't have access to it. However, here at the photos from my cell's camera, sorry for the poor quality!

She made me a tea tray set! I drink a LOT of tea. A lot. This will be great for summer tea parties! It's all green and gold, which are absolutely beautiful. And she put unusual, awesome dinos on it... the kinds I like.

The tray with one of my favorite dinosaurs -- Amargasaurus (the sauropod with the spikes!).

A collection of dinosaur coasters. I love the focus on different parts of each dino.

Two matching boxes, in which I shall keep:

New additions to my little fossil collection! Ordovician fossils from Cincinnati. Cheesy

I got my tea card from Kalanit! And it included LotR, which just makes it freaking awesome of course. I love the 3D elements. The silver letter brads are gorgeous.

Yay, I'm addicted to ATCs!!

Kalanit received the "Alice in Wonderland" themed ATC I made her, but she's super busy and having scanner troubles, so I'm posting a pic of it for her.

It's an India ink drawing, I called it "All Mad Here".

I received my rainbow/colorful ATC from The Platypus Project! It's entitled "Colorswatch" and it is sewn!

It's so fantastic. The red is sparkly, and all the fabrics are so lovely. I just love the feel of it. Eee!

5  Cookie Monster Scarf -- first time crocheting! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Velvetdragon on: June 19, 2009 12:12:48 PM
I decided to post the Cookie Monster scarf that I sent to Windoverireland for the Jim Henson swap. I taught myself to crochet -- well, at least to crochet circles -- for the swap, since I had the image of this in my mind and really wanted to make it.

The yarn is all cotton.

The eyes -- the pupils are buttons.

A close-up cookie. NOM NOM chocolate chip!

Now I want to learn more crochet techniques and try my hands at a pattern!

I received my shiny/sparkly ATC from SonjaBoo!

So pretty!! Sparkly stickers, shiny paper, and glitter glue. The first ATC I've ever received. Dragons like shiny things.  Grin

I apologize for the extremely belated pic posting! I had a nasty stomach thing when it came (I opened the package anyway, I was too excited!) and now it's finals week and I completely spaced once I had the camera back in my hands. It's been "busy", working with my wife on some stop motion animation. I'm taking some time out from my final projects to geek out on crafts!

My package from Windoverireland was absolutely fantastic. I was so excited when it came. My sister and I opened it together. Here's the whole spread!

So shiny!

First, a fantastic, SPARKLY shirt! I absolutely love the colors, inspired by Jareth's ball costume. And I do so love glitter. Hehe. I have the perfect jeans to wear this with.

More shiny things. These are beautiful colors. I'm going to keep them on my computer desk for sundry items and bits and bobs. They're glittery, stackable trays with scenes from Labyrinth.

Jareth's pendant! This is going to hang on the wall in the art studio!

And so is this:

Amazing Firey mask! I adore the Fireys (especially since Danny John-Jules played a Firey, and because of the button-eyed stuffed Firey in Sarah's room).

Awesome stickers, and Sesame Street cloth. I have many little projects the cloth will be great for, and the stickers are awesome. Especially Loveable Furry Old Grover, my favorite!

8  Ceramic Birdhouse and Bird Feeder (image heavy) in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by Velvetdragon on: March 19, 2009 04:46:09 PM
I made these in my beginning ceramic class. I can't wait to hang them up, I just need some chain!

The birdhouse is coil built. It is built to the size that wrens and chickadees prefer, 4 inches in diameter at the bottom, about 9 inches deep, with the 1 1/4 inch hole about 6 inches above the bottom. These little birds like cathedral ceilings!

It is stoneware clay, fired to cone 10. The glaze was complicated, despite its' look. The branches took four coats, plus a coat of wax resist! The body is glazed in a lovely, subtle celadon.

The inside is left unglazed, to give little baby birds a way to climb out when it's time to leave the nest!

Holes in the back for ventilation. There are also holes in the bottom for drainage.

The top removes for easy cleaning. Strong branches provide a place to hang it from beside the lid. next time I will use cables to make a lid that slides up, but I didn't have access for this go. This angle makes it look crooked. Hehe.

A matching bird feeder! Same glazes, but this one was slab built.

Perches for hungry birdies.

I can't wait to put birdseed in it and see the first bird come to visit!

9  Fox Mask in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Velvetdragon on: March 18, 2009 03:34:59 PM
This is from my first term of beginning ceramics. I just finished my second term but I only just got good photos of this! The assignment was fairly open -- create a slab-built mask.

Hand-built, iron stain, fired to cone 10.

10  Re: Misc. Challenge number 1...Shrines! Post entries until March 13th in Discussion and Questions by Velvetdragon on: March 14, 2009 05:17:10 AM
Holy carp, it's 5 AM and I have work tomorrow. *lol* But I had to get it finished tonight, because I do leave early in the morning and won't have time to do anything in the morning! *so tired!*

I started this as soon as I first posted to this thread. I also had NONE of the supplies, except some acrylic paint and Sculpey. I can't believe how many stores I ran around to! And I still don't feel this is done.  Cheesy This is my first shrine.

I chose to do an Alice's Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass shrine. If it's not obvious from my personal quote, signature, livejournal, webpage, etc. I am quite fond of it.

To start with, I bought an extra copy of the book, and then ripped the poor thing to shreds. I have several different editions, so this one could be sacrificed. I will use the remainder of it to make an altered book I think! I covered the whole thing with AiW pages. You can see some of the text and pictures.

I sculpted the Dormouse and Cheshire Cat and mushrooms from Sculpey and painted them with acrylics. The spots on the mushrooms are wax, because I wanted them to be all texturey.

The pocket watch is a real pocket watch, because I wanted my shrine to keep time. Hehe.

There are more pictures here, because I don't know what the image limit is on this board, and couldn't find it!

Outside; the front has a mirror, and says "Through the Looking Glass".


Mad Hatter page from AAiW in the background, and a mad hat!

White roses, being painted red.

The Dormouse, not fitting in a teapot! 

The Cheshire Cat, or, rather, just his floating head, and his likeness, or rather, the likeness of his floating head at the croquet game.

Just his grin.  Grin

Other elements from AiW are a Red Queen playing card (and a 3 of clubs to serve her), keys, a bottle marked "drink me", and a White Knight.
