1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pixel Couple for cousin's wedding on: September 28, 2012 09:21:02 AM
Wow, I haven't posted in a loooong time. My cousin is getting married later today and I really wanted to make something personal for her.  I whipped up their little family in just a few hours.  The pattern was a mix of other pixel people I saw floating around and some Martha Stewart patterns. I found the frame and mat for $1.99 at Salvation Army. Score for being thrifty!

I hope she likes it!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bzzz! Bee Cross Stitch on: August 30, 2011 02:01:25 PM
Hello! I made this during the Pushing Daisies swap for my awesome partner, Quinndustrious P. I used a dark gray & mustard color  because I thought it looked classy  Wink.  I used a pattern for the bee but free-handed the honeycombs. It was hard to let this go, might have to make a twin! (There's a bit of a reflection on the glass, it's not dirty aida, I promise!)

Happy stitching!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stackable Cats Cross-Stitch on: July 28, 2011 02:54:11 PM
Hey! I made this cross stitch last winter, just forgot to post it. My friend loves cats and I changed the pattern around so it reflects her 4 different kitties.  It was quite fun to stitch up. Original pattern can be found here: http://mochimochiland.com/2009/05/free-cross-stitch-pattern-stackable-cats/

Happy Stitching!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Game of Thrones inspired shirt! on: June 03, 2011 09:45:53 PM
I've fallen completely and madly in love with HBO's Game of Thrones. I haven't read any of the ASOIAF books, but I'm thinking I should. My boyfriend requested a House Stark t-shirt and voila! I used the freezer paper method. Super fast and easy. I'm making myself a Targaryen one next! (I have the biggest girl crush on Daenerys.)

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wood-Carved Flowers on: May 24, 2011 08:26:40 AM
I was really unsure of where to put this, so miscellaneous topics it is! I took a relief printmaking class a couple years ago and really enjoyed the woodblock prints we did. There's something about carving wood that is so satisfying.  I loved the look of the block itself.  I did this for Mother's Day last year.  I carved the flowers and then did a quick wash-paint job so the wood grain would still show through.

Detail Shot:

The whole thing is about 1 x 2 feet. My mom loves it!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Antique Monogram on: February 17, 2011 06:50:21 AM
My boyfriend and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, but I still wanted to do something small for him. I chose to do a monogram of our first initials (J,K) layered together.  I got the pattern from the Antique Patterns Library. (Love that!) Only took a couple hours to stitch.

Oh and bonus, I found this great frame at a flea market for $1!

Letters are in a light gray & darker gray, heart is done in a burgundy color.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Etching: Little Girl & Leaf Balloons on: February 08, 2011 12:44:14 PM
I took an intaglio class last semester, my first time doing any kind of etching! This was our third project I think? A soft ground etching. I placed leaves and thread on the plate, then ran it through our press. All of the textures were imprinted onto the plate.  I printed a couple of versions. Here are two of those versions:

Magenta ink on cream paper (colors are a little off)

Leaf detail

And my favorite one! Dark brown ink, printed on a Van Dyke of leaves that I did. (Van Dyke is like a cyanotype sun print, but with brown instead of blue)

C & C welcome! Thanks for looking!
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ohm Cross Stitch on: January 21, 2011 09:18:57 PM
For my boyfriend's mother for her birthday.

I used 2 strands of variegated floss on 14 count aida. Final size is about 2.5 x 2.5.
Got the chart from about.com: http://crossstitch.about.com/od/patternsfromyourguide/ig/Expressive-Motifs-Patterns/Small-Ohm-Cross-Stitch-Pattern.htm
There's lots of free patterns on about.com, I highly recommend looking!


Happy Stitching!

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Scott Pilgrim Nom Nom Nom on: August 24, 2010 07:08:21 PM
The boyfriend loves reading Scott Pilgrim, so what better anniversary present than a SP shirt?! With his favorite panel, of course! First tango with freezer paper, and I think it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself! He even let out a squeal of joy when he opened it, haha.

Finished Product & Inspiration / Stencil:


Thanks for looking!
10  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Harvey K. Inspired Piece on: June 15, 2010 09:45:58 PM
This is the first project I've ever posted, so hopefully I don't do it wrong!

Last semester at school I took Glassblowing 1, and our final project was an homage to an artist.  I chose Harvey K. Littleton, the father of the Studio Glass Movement (he's a really awesome guy, look him up!) On the left is my final piece and the right is his piece that inspired me. Of course his is perfect since he's the master! Comments and Criticism definitely welcomed!
