1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Not so new craftster on: July 12, 2017 09:57:59 PM
Because I never introduced myself the first time I became a member thought I might do so this time.

I was active here a few years ago, signed up in 2009 and my guess is that I stopped coming by around 2012/13. Not only am I planning to be back for a long time, but I also changed my user name. I doubt anyone remembers me but I used to be called imera.

You can find me and my family living in Norway, where I commute 4 hours every day to work (in my last job I commuted 5 hours), so while I have less crafting time I will have more time to comment on the lovely projects posted here. I love most crafts, but my favourite medium to work with is clay and paper.

Not only do I want to be more active here, but I also want to focus on my craft blog and my etsy shops. I know I will have to find a new balance soon as I'm also planning to sign up to take internet college, ok, not certain what it's called in English but I don't go to class because all the classes are on the internet (through the school) and I can talk with the teachers there, making it possible for me to study in the evening while I work. The bad thing is that it will take a lot of time, the good thing is that with that diploma I can find jobs closer to home.

So that is short-ish about me, looking forward to being active here again Cheesy

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Kokeshi doll on: June 21, 2011 12:10:12 PM
I was partnered up with Ruby Copperhead for the "one tiny stuffie r5" swap, and she wanted different things. After spending a week thinking about what to make her I decided to make something Japanese, since she loves Japan, and it brightens her mood.

After thinking some more I decided to make her a stuffie Kokeshi doll.

The body and head are felted balls that I made, drying them took ages. The hair was difficult, and the curves of the kimono, but as you can see, I managed to overcome the difficulties.

I sewed the whole thing by hand, I also didn't have any iron to straighten the folds. Then I hand sewn the plants on the kimono, sewed the face (the eyes were difficult) and added the wrap around the middle, with the lace. I made all the blue roses myself from ribbon, and stuck two pins with glass beads between the roses.

So here are the pictures, of the front and back

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Apron problem on: December 15, 2010 10:46:16 AM
I'm making an apron for a good friend, and it has to be done today because she's leaving tomorrow. My problem is the fabric that is supposed do hold the apron up, whatever it's called.
I have made it into a braid and sewed it down on one of the sides, and it's not long enough so she can tie it either. I was thinking about adding some elastic band that will hold it there, allowing her to make the loop larger if she needs to, but I'm not sure how big she likes it. I was also thinking about a button, but then I have the same problem with the size.

Does anyone know what I can do?
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 57 ENTRIES / Glittery animals on: December 05, 2010 05:33:36 PM
I'm tired and sleepy, working on this project for four days (which is as long as I have known about this months contest) Just came back today and had to finish it before I'll go to bed, it's not fun not to have any time.

I hope you guys like it, it's the Christmas animals.

If you want to know how I made them keep on reading, if not scroll down to the pictures.
I blew up the silhouette, the elephant ended up on a A3 paper, the same with the giraffe and the long arm/tentacle to the octopus. Then I traced them over on cardboard paper, and cut them out. I then found some gift paper and tried to decoupage them on, which I can't seem to get right every time I try, need to read some tutorials maybe. As soon as they had dried I applied glitter on them; except for the octopus and giraffe I traced the images of the gift paper. Then I made a few bows and added them on the squirrel and giraffe. That is about it, I know the glitter doesn't show that well but they are shinning like the stars outside my window right now.

Elephant: It's 33 cm (13") wide and 28 cm (11") tall
The gift paper is my favourite, blue snowy town, but the elephant doesn't beat my favourite animal I made, the giraffe.


Giraffe: It's 48 cm (18.9") tall and 11 cm (4.3") wide
My favourite one, even without the bow, I love the angel paper but my favourite part was the spots on it.


Squirrel: It's 22 cm (8.7") wide and 18 cm (7.1") tall
Because the images were big and with a person it was difficult to add glitter, but I think I managed.


Octopus: It's 26 cm (10.2") tall and 44 cm (17.3") wide
I added the glitter today, it only had a few hours to dry before it had to go through a short photo session. The paper is only stripes so I had to add the circles, which I didn't quite like, but it's too late to change it now.


Koala: It's 19 cm (7.5") tall and 15 cm (5.9") wide
The cutest one I think, managed to get the wreath around its nose, and had no idea the bow was resting against his ear. I love glittering up the trees and wreaths, it was so much fun.


I hope you guys like it even if it's not perfect, I might have done something different if I had read the post before the first December.

All the animals will now be placed around in my sisters naked bedroom walls.
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Bride and Groom - papercut on: September 20, 2010 02:31:48 AM
I have been prolonging this far to long, so I'm afraid it's not something new, but it is something at least.

I love paper, and if it was possible I would find a job where I could design paper, or just play with paper. But right now I am happy just playing with it whenever I have time. Papercutting is something I accidentally stumbled upon, and loved it at once, so I began to search for papercutting, but there aren't really that much out there.

This is one of the first things I tried to cut out, and it was fun. I hope you like it as well.
