31  One Man Shirt = Many recons in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Knot all there on: June 03, 2009 05:58:13 AM
I've just finished my Art foundation course and decided to put up a load of some of the stuff I got up to.
We had to deconstruct a shirt and reconstruct it into loads and loads of ideas and these are just a few I came up with.

Hope you like them, because I thoroughly enjoyed making them  Smiley

The Man Shirt before it got gobbled up:

Ok...this was my first try so dont laugh at its poo-ness:

OOOOh, I just love ruffles!


And some roses toooooooo:

Thanks for looking!

32  Gory Photos in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Knot all there on: June 03, 2009 05:49:41 AM
I know I have been posting a lot today but I finally found my memory stick with all my old work on.
I did these photos for my Art A-level which I got poo grades for unfortunately but I think the whole thing went well despite this hiccup.

The were done all just using facepaint and a splattering of vaseline to stop the drips running away and to make it look yucky...I swear my arm and hands were dyed red by the end of it all as well as the school nurse thinking I'd actually been beating up people as she found me with one of my 'victims' in the corridor and scared to living daylights out of her...
haa ha ha good times.

Obviously noone was harmed in the making of these...unless you count being a funny shade of red for a week harm. Grin

Sooooo...here they are:

My chummly with a slashed neck:

And another with her face smashed in a little:

33  Brain Fart in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Knot all there on: June 03, 2009 05:40:55 AM
I did this for my Final Piece in my A-Level year (and got a D  Cry )
I was really having a lot of brain fog and originally tried painting the whole thing but that turned out like a massive piece of crud.
So I did the whole thing in pencil which I think looks quite nice actually.
I am really proud of the skull...i spent hours on it (though it may not look like it)

34  A rose by any other name... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Knot all there on: June 03, 2009 05:35:54 AM
I did this a few years back (wow, it really has been a long time) for my Art A-Level (which I did dismally at for some reason  Cry)

Anyway it is basically a reproduction of a Mark Ryden painting called Rose which I absolutely love and I think it turned out ok, especially as I did it when I trapped a nerve in my wrist making it hurt and twitch like a b*tch. Anyhoo, no matter what my grades say, I think it didnt come out too shabby.

C+C welcome!

The whole thing

A close up.

35  Boldy Going Nowhere...Tshirt Recon Help! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Knot all there on: June 01, 2009 10:46:57 AM
To the many clothing/sewing genius' out there in Craftsters,

I have 7 XL mens tshirts that I am aiming to turn into tshirt dresses. However, I am basically completely useless with a sewing machine as I am completely new to it.
I am fine with ripping stitches out of things and doing mock-ups but when it comes to the real thing it comes out all scrappy with rubbish stitching.

This is one of my delightful humungeous tshirts

Anyway. Just a few vague questions, but any newbie info would be frickin AWESOME.

1. What is the best stitching for new seams? (I dont have a serger) Is it just a straight stitch or something to do with zig-zags and pinking the edges.

2. I want to put contrasting ribbing on the outside but I have no idea how to do it. Any help?

3. I'm trying to change the shape with the minimum of cutting into the original fabric, especially the neckline. Does anyone know any tutorials or sneaky little tricks to make this a reality?

Thank you for any help whatsoever, Anything is appreciated.

36  Birthday Cupcakes (pic fatty) in Dessert by Knot all there on: May 12, 2009 03:19:21 AM
It was my friends birthday and I wanted to do something special as I hadnt seen her in ages, so I cracked open my trusty cupcake recipe book and bought myself some sugarpaste.

Bear in mind that this was my first attempt at using sugarpaste and BOY was it a struggle to begin with.
There was icing sugar everywhere to stop it sticking to my hands.
Food colouring splattered about the place as I had to mix my own as there was only royale white in the quantity i needed.

Though I thought it turned out okay and tres cute!
(She loved it by the way  Smiley )

"I'm ready for my close up!"

And a Lolrus (It was an INTERWEBZ party)

And Finally a Lolcat! Though he looks a bit CRAZY!

Thanks for looking!
I hope I have this in the right section!
