21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / my first try at any sort of digital art. on: July 09, 2009 07:34:10 PM
On a whim I made this, with paint shop pro and a little smudge and color editing.

It's rough and blurry, and pixaly and I love it.

I really love the kaleidoscope one.

the original (after color and smudging and what not photo shop)

22  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Doll House Miniture Firsts. on: June 19, 2009 09:00:46 PM
This was my first try at doll house miniatures.  I have made plenty of miniature things, but I think Doll house takes it to a whole new level.

A leather journal, letter, wax-sealed envelope, ink well and quill.  I only now noticed that the belt does not go through the buckle, and it is irking me to no end!

Here is a quarter for comparison.

I tried to get a better photo of the ink well, but my camera refused.
23  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / would this dye? on: June 18, 2009 08:32:40 AM
I have ugly carpal tunnel braces, one for each wrist, made of mostly flesh tones ace bandage type material, velcro, and a strip of "leather".

I would like to dye them purple.

But I am not sure how this stretchy fabric, much like elastic but more clothy, would dye.  I don't expect the "leather" to dye, but I was wondering if any one knew how the rest might go?

My mother in law bought this for me at a yard sale.  It was pretty but a  bit to much to photograph jewelry on.   I needed something simple and classic.

This is what I ended up with

And this is the back, I added pheasant feathers.

And the before shot.  It was pretty, but just not working with me.


25  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / NEW Rock Pets/Totem Things. PICTURE MORBID OBESE on: June 07, 2009 04:29:08 AM
After all the wonderful support on my first Rock pets, I tride my hand at some new, more exciting ones.  Excuse the weird yellow coloring, awful lighting in my room.

I think my favorite is the turtle.

and the old ones for people who hadn't seen.

Like I said, picture INSANE!
Comments and critiques always welcome!
26  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pet Rock / Worry Stone on: June 06, 2009 05:49:47 AM
I got this neat rock looking polymer clay the other day and thought it would be neat to make "pet rocks".


The last one came out dark, I think my oven had been on a while, so he is just a bit toasty.

Comments and critiques always welcome!

27  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Wild Things and more! on: June 04, 2009 07:24:08 PM
Is it obvious that I am obsessed with Where the Wild Things Are?
Perhaps it is because I was to be named Max if I had a peter at birth.
But alas I did not, and now I am left obsessed with this child hood memory. Not to mention Alice in Wonderland, another obsession of mine.

But I digress, here are my latest charms.

Please try to be original in your designs if you mean to sell them as your own. It's just not nice OR professional to steal peoples ideas and profit from them.
28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland Themed Charms (image chubby) on: June 02, 2009 09:36:15 PM
I made these tonight.  I havn't glazed them. I'll post new pictures when they are finished, I just loved them so much I wanted to post them now!

Although, I am not too impressed with The Red Queen, or the Cheshire cat.  The Mad Hatter and the Caterpillar are my favorite.

I just realized the White Rabbit's watch has no numbers!
I have work to do!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler Approved Yellow Medallion Dress NOW WITH TUTE! on: May 26, 2009 03:57:13 PM
I whipped this dress up in an hour using two quilt squares, some remnants, and one foot of elastic.  The whole thing cost about $3.50 and fits my 24-month sized One year old daughter.

Halter Top Back

Front ( which was hard to get.)

I whipped up a little tute per request after offering.  It only consists of 8 pieces, two of which are linings, and 4 are strap pieces.  Great for novice sewers.

The best way I would go about measuring pieces for your dress is to take an existing dress and measure width and length.  Mark where the arm opening ends to give yourself a base to cut.  Trace half the dress, fold and cut so your piece is symmetrical.  Make sure to keep your shoulder straps at least an inch wide PLUS sewing allowance.  Oh, and the yellow on the Tute is the Elastic.  You'll need about 8-12 inches.

30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Jewelry Burlesque Facsinator. Picture Fatty on: May 24, 2009 11:13:07 AM
I absolutley love the Burlesque Swaps.  But, alas I missed them.  I took the opportunity to practice and make these bad boys.

On the first one I used a broken, cracked ceramic pendant I wore to senior prom.  A friend had given it to me my sophmor year, and it meant a lot to me.  I also used a plastic pearl necklace I had been wearing since junior high.

The second one I used a broken vintage piece from my recon stash.  Or should I say from my grandma's Antique booth junk pile. Which is mine for the picking.

I also used this big ornate pink feather duster I found brand new at a garage sale for 5 dollars. Talk about a super steal. Those feathers are expensive!

Both are sealed onto a head band, which is uncommon, but I think it makes them more secure.

and an action shot.

And the second.

and an action shot on my daughter's care bear.
