11  Re: IYP 20 Winter Chillin Cotillion Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by ZidishaLuxe on: April 02, 2012 03:22:50 PM
Love the decorated altoid tin and matchbox, totally coveting that Tardis fabric, and seriously in awe of that quilt (and loving the colors!) You guys are all so awesome!!!

I got my package from sheepBlue today, we decided to do a hoopla exchange. Cheesy
I picked it up on the way to class and ended up opening it in the park and seriously LOLed when I unwrapped it. Check out that lovely border and those flowers! So smitten!

And as extras she sent me this fab green beaded, braided bracelet. It's so perfect; I've been wanting to make something similar! And then this lovely mounted hippo (that I'm calling a hiphopopotomus) which is seriously precious.

Thanks so much sheep! I love it all!

12  Amelie 35mm film trailer canvas art in Completed Projects by ZidishaLuxe on: March 30, 2012 01:17:32 PM
I didn't really know where to put this, so miscellaneous it is! Not the most creative thing in the world, but I'm sure there are other people like me who have film and wonder what the heck to do with it.

I bought the trailer for Amelie, my favorite film, and today when I came across this 12X48 stretched canvas I had an idea of what to do! It could probably be executed better, but the trailer was inexpensive and the newer films aren't very difficult to find so I had no worries about if things didn't quite turn out! (I probably wouldn't reccommend using your E6 film with precious memories.)

I used the head, foot, and opening green screen to go around the borders because with the wooden frame light wouldn't show through those areas anyway. And then I just started filling it in with strips.

Here it is leaning against a window (though I really don't think that's very safe for maintaining the film quality)

My initial thought was that I would use Christmas lights or something similar behind it, but the ones I have are a bit too yellow and spotty.

I'm going to look for some of those LED light strips; I think they'll do the job!

You can actually still see most everything even when it's just on the wall, so I'm pretty pleased! Would love any comments or critiques on how to make a better one. I was thinking I could do something with sandwiching the film between sheets of plexiglass and having a wooden frame - basically like making a lightbox.

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

I received my hoop from amifriends and I love it so much! Sorry about posting pics so late! I was on vacation and couldn't check my mail for a week! She chose a quote from Amelie, my favorite movie, and it's perfect! Look at those adorable clouds!

Thank you so much!

Thehappycrochetchic asked me to post pics for her because she's having a tough time trying to find her connector cable. Been there. Wink

Sadly, I accidentally deleted the photos I took with my camera when I was clearing the SD card for an event. Sad So all I have are these from my phone, but you get the idea. Smiley She wanted Marie Antoinette but was also interested in painted Day of the Dead faces, so I wanted to do a mixture and when I found this artwork I thought it'd be perfect!

I received my replacement hoop from thehappycrochetchic and I love it! Funnily enough, I did a Diana embroidery recently but sent it to someone else and was sad about it, so yay! Now I have one of my own and it's perfect!

Thank you!

16  Spring Fashion Show gowns [Img Heavy!] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ZidishaLuxe on: February 26, 2012 07:36:18 AM
An organization I'm in, the Fashion Design Student Association had our annual fashion show this past Friday. All of the clothes are student designed and made, and each person is allowed to make however many pieces / whatever they want. I decided to do six gows, and here they are. (If you've seen some of my other posts, the white dresses may look familiar, I did a little revamping!)

Here's everything (minus one - I had a model disaster and had to find another girl at the last second.)

Blue roses & satin:

Yellow chiffon with sheer embroidered cross organza overlay:

White satin gown with sheer cross organza yoke and beaded trim:

Forest green lace and chiffon with sheer cross organza waist:

Green satin and gold lace:

Ivory singed roses with organza and chiffon:

Thanks for bearing through all of the photos! I'd love to hear your comments/critiques. I was pretty thrilled with how everything came together!!  Cheesy

17  Sue's Non-PC Roll Call Cross Stitch - Glee in Needlework: Completed Projects by ZidishaLuxe on: October 15, 2011 06:46:33 AM
I've been wanting to do something Glee related for my hoopla wall for ages. While looking through Sue Sylvester's quotes I found one from "Throwdown" and this design idea instantly came to mind. The clip, if you're interested: http://youtu.be/_aYhnEnrsxc

I came up with the design myself. I got the lettering from books, free websites, and I made up "Asian" and "Gay kid" as I went along.

Hope you like it! It's probably not as amusing out of the context of being a Glee watcher...

I received my second package today!!

Here's the shirt Ralph sent me. It's for "Careflight," an Australian charity that transports sick children to hospitals that they might not have access to otherwise, and the proceeds from the shirt went to support them, which I just love.

My camera was being finicky about getting a good photo of it because of the bright red color. Sad

She made me a stationary set with photos of various places in her hometown, and the paper the cards are made of is just fab!

And lastly, a necklace she made with a picture of the Bankstown Pheonix as well as some kitschy extras. I'm psyched about the keychains! Grin I went to Australia a couple of years ago, and I didn't buy a single souvenier! Roll Eyes

Thank you so much; I love everything!!

I received from pinkleo today! She got me this cute tee:

And made me a really pretty charm bracelet with a bunch of Texas-y things like the Longhorns logo, a horseshoe, boots with spurs, a lone star, etc.! I love it! She also threw in some yummy sounding texas recipes and some mini playing cards.

Thank you!! <3

I got my package from GeekySweetheart!!

She made me these embroidered coasters by modge podge-ing over hooped embroidery. I've never seen anything like this! I think I'm definitely going to keep these displayed until I need a coaster; they're just too cool!

These just crack me up. Annddd, they're going to be perfect for Glee night tomorrow!

Thanks so much! I love them to pieces!!! Grin
