A digital manipulation of an original photo I took.
Happy Halloween everyone!

22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Beaded Lavender Card tutorial on: October 23, 2009 05:31:11 PM
Cut three pieces of florist wire. Then cut 3 pieces of beading wire (about 10cm long).
Attached one end to the top of the florist wire and then thread purple then clear seed beads on to the wire alternating until about 3cm from the end.
Carefully wind the beaded wire around the florist wire and attach the bead wire the the stem. Voila! A lavender stalk.
Emboss a square border onto your card.
Attach the lavender sprigs together with a piece of beading wire; arranging them and bending the stalks until you're happy with them.
Attach to your card by making two small holes through the card, threading a piece of lavender coloured ribbon through and tying a bow.
Dob a small amount of super glue to the bow so it doesn't come undone and also adheres to the wires beneath. Take a green coloured pencil and scribble a background.
Add an insert to your card and you're done!

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Christening Card on: October 23, 2009 05:17:19 PM
Got some great photos of your friends and family lying about the place? Why not use them to make a unique card?
This card is made of different layers; some mounted on foam pads and attached to the card.
The photo was one I took and enhanced in photoshop. I made it black and white and made his eyes blue.

24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Black and white handbags and shoes card on: October 23, 2009 05:11:02 PM
I drew some handbags and shoes using a vector drawing program; then printed it out and mounted it on the front of a square black card. Then I cut two squares one black and one white glued them together, added the sentiment and flowers then mounted it on foam squares onto the front of the card.

Another photoshop CS2 manipulation. A combination of skull, doorways, lighting; result moody but not too serious.

I have a teenage daughter who, in the nature of teenage girls, can be very volatile at times. LOL
This image started from a simple photo. Then I added fire, new eyes, new background and changed the lighting a bit. All done in photoshop CS2.

27  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Celtic Gecko + celtic knot tutorial on: October 20, 2009 05:11:32 AM
Being of Irish descent I have always been fascinated by the Celtic knot work you see on Irish and Scottish monuments, illuminated manuscripts etc. A few years ago I had the opportunity to finally do a course that taught you how to actually draw the blasted things. I sweated blood when I designed my wedding invitations and on day one or said course, I found out how much easier it would have been had I only had the skills and the know how.... sigh.
This is the first piece I have done in a long time - 4 children will do that to your creative streak. It's more contemporary than other pieces I have done; I have used a mix of celtic knotwork and dots: I like the dot paintings of the Australian Aborigines and found the you can't reproduce those dots any other way other than dobbing the end of a stick (or paintbrush) into paint and then dotting it onto your canvas!
This piece has been executed in acrylics.

28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dougal on: October 19, 2009 03:17:54 AM
I loved the Magic Roundabout when I was a kid, especially Dougal. I have seen long haired short legged real dogs that always remind me of Dougal - especially since they move as if they're on wheels ... just like Dougal Grin
Cold porcelain, seed beads acrylic colours.

29  COOKING / Dessert / Cat cakes on: October 17, 2009 04:29:06 PM
These cakes are chocolate with Betty Crocker frosting. The cat faces are a mix of M & M's, white chocolate buttons, piped dark chocolate, and flattened red jelly candy. Their ears are mini marshmallows cut in half and the frosting piped over them.
The Cat paws are mini marshmallows cut in half with dark chocolate claws.
The fish is melted white chocolate piped in the shape of a fish skeleton.
They were great fun to make and the kids loved them!

30  COOKING / Dessert / Bug Cakes on: October 17, 2009 03:39:42 PM
These little cupcakes come from a book called "Hello Cupcake", which is a fantastic book! They're vanilla cupcakes with Betty Crocker vanilla frosting. The bugs are made from piped melted chocolate and M & M's.
Colour the frosting and cover the cupcakes. You can pour some sprinkles or coloured sugar onto a plate and gently roll the edges of the cakes to make a border on them.
Pipe the legs on to some baking paper, and place the M & M's in the chocolate; let set in the fridge. Gentley peel the bugs off the paper and place onto the frosting.
