171  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Strofoam Reduction Print-set on: August 25, 2009 05:01:46 PM
So as a little impromptu project, I decided to try Styrofoam reduction printing, which is like Ukrainian Easter Egg painting, but in a more thrifty, print-like form. They didn't quite turn out the way I wanted them to (three people standing on a hill with stars hanging from strings), but I think that the effects I got out of them are pretty cool. Each of the four prints is completely different from the next. I might try and get a tutorial up here once I get more printing ink, because the concept is pretty simple and quite fun. Cheesy

This is the first print I made, and probably the cleanest one.

I added black onto a layer on this one

This one is my all-time favourite one. I like how it looks really...vibrant and like something out of one of those old 3-D movies that would hurt your eyes.

But yes. Enjoy Smiley
172  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Handmade Mini-book of Crows on: August 25, 2009 04:45:02 PM
So I decided to try my hand at making a little book. Annd...seeing as apparently August means that I should be getting ready for Halloween, I decided to base it on my favourite bird- the crow. The writing all over the book is from a poem my boyfriend wrote for me, that I found just...perfect for the book. I can post that somewhere here, too, if someone wants the full thing.

Just a side note. The brown paper is all handmade by me from broken down cotton fibers from old t-shirts, and the rest of the paper was cut from scraps I found in my aunt's scrap booking garbage. Smiley The buttons are all old castoffs from shirts, and from a bag of unused buttons I bought. I tried to make my own ink for the stamps, but I'm still trying to perfect making nice thick, black ink- It hasn't worked so far, so I used simple printing ink. Wink

The cover page. I love how a cute little button looks quite eerie on this page. The tree is on the last page of the book, but the crows stay and look down at you while you go through the whole book o.0

I want to try and improve my printing skills, so I found one of my favourite books on birds, and cut out three layers of feathers from a wing on waxed paper. It looks so good on the paper, people think I just bought it printed on there.

Just a little bit more detail. I love this page.

I'm realizing that I'm in love with swirlies and buttons, too. It's becoming an addiction...

The stripes on this page stretch around the back page and onto the front one. I made the cover stripes look like a city, if you turn it sideways.

Ahah. Yeahh. That gash was pretty much my favourite part of...well...anyone's makeup ^^;;.

The sad thing was, the paramedic that put a neck brace on me wrecked it when he taped my head to the spinal board! I came home and all I had was a big red smudge on my forehead.

Our lovely Ontario government likes to pretend my part of the province doesn't exist anyway, so I feel more Western if that helps?

Aha! Another Northwestern Ontarian? Yayyy! I'm happy I'm not the only one coming from middle o' nowhere Ontario. =P Although, come winter again here, I'm going to be transplanted to Quebec for school once again. Escape the extreme cold for the winter.  Cheesy

I hate how you have to tell people that you're from Northern Ontario, and then people go "Oh, you mean like Sudbury?!" And you have to explain to them that you're closer to Winnipeg than you are Toronto.

Oh yes. It was tons of funn. ^.^

And we were kind of...given the basic injuries, so they'd tell us, okay we want some of you up close to the accident, with lots of injuries, and some of you with minor injuries. And they kind of left the rest up to us. I had to pretend I had a punctured lung, but the rest was kind of up to me. =P So it was kind of half and half.

Annnd of course, being a drama class, we all decided to come up with kooky back-stories for why we ended up there. a couple were secret agents that somehow got trapped in the accident, and what have you. Tongue

Well this is my first actual post to Craftster, so I thought I'd share a fun story.

Soo our town decided to recruit my drama class to do a mock-up of casualties for a town-wide disaster (seeing as we're a very industrial small town, but apparently now a very well-prepared one...). And as it would happen, I ended up doing quite a bit of the gore for us victims.

I was basically given a bottle of fake runny blood, thick blood, some ashes, rocks, a velcro curler, and some basic oil face-paints. And I had to give them...somewhat appropriate injuries, seeing as we were just hit by flying debris from an exploded train...I only did five or six of us, while the other guys handled the rest. I got to basically just play with everything...so my group was probably the goriest of them all.

This is my own lovely makeup. I suffered a concussion, as well as major lacerations to the temple. Along with a punctured lung and a hurt arm.

We had fun with her makeup. She wanted lots of blood, but didn't want to act out any serious injury. So we just gave her lots of big ugly cuts and scrapes

She suffered from severe amnesia (note the confused look) as well as a...really gross broken bone. There's fake bone sticking out, the camera just didn't really pick it out.

These pictures really...aren't serious. But we were all stuck to a stretcher during the actual thing, and being the almost-dead casualties, we kind of had a lot of waiting time before people actually reached us. So we all had a bit of fun...

We got to lie on railway tracks (the whole thing was shut down) and got carried out on stretchers, decontaminated (you'll notice the black on our faces. Apparently we were supposed to sustain burns from fire. So I kind of just...put ash everywhere. =\) and then hauled off in ambulances to the hospital, where we were pretend-triage'd and looked after and whatnot.

The funny thing was, that during all of this, they had a real emergency, and had to leave a couple of us (including me) stuck to the stretcher, immobilized, for at least a half hour. So we got to sit there. Trying to figure out how to get out. ^^;;

All in all it was sooo much fun. It's quite fun to say I made it look like 6 people died...

These are awesome. You've got some serious talent. Smiley My only question is...how did you get the outfits on without ripping the newspaper and such? Are there zippers and buttons and such, or did you just cross your fingers and pray? Tongue

Awesome job.

Wow...the yarn is so weird that it actually makes the little guy look...really, really cute. If you put him beside the couch in my grandparents house, he'd blend right in. The fabric on that thing is almost identical!

But he's sooo cute. I wanna take it home and snuggle it. =) Awesome job.
