1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Monster Poster on: May 03, 2010 07:20:36 AM
On 30th of April in the Netherlands is the Queens day. And there is a traditional 'flee market' on different places of the country where people sell selfmade things or things they don't need anymore. A couple of months ago me and my boyfriend had an idea to sell selfmade buns. About 2 hours before going out we remembered that we need a poster to attract customers. So it was decided that I do that. The trick was my boyfriend wanted a big and attractive poster. And I didn't have much time. So I used the back of an old poster. I had a quite big tube of white tempera but the black one had managed to dry out. All other supplies weren't enough for such big poster. So I somehow managed to revive the black one with a bit of water. + I have never been good at drawing letters especially when U have so little time. And I had no idea what to make. So I painted the light brown board white and let it dry for 15 minutes. Since I had the monster swap in my mind this is what was created -

It says "Tasty buns" in Dutch. Not very neat, I admit. But it is huge and was made in a hurry and the price had to be changed etc. Anyways it was fun to make. And some people get attracted to buy the buns because of the poster. Cheesy
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Scrunchies from old panties on: April 02, 2010 06:35:38 AM
I used to make cat toys from old panties but since my cats favorite brand of the dry cat food offered a toy mouse for free with every package my house is full with these mice. But still my fingers were itching to make something from them. So I was fooling around and in less than 10minutes I made a scrunchy from an elastic of panties and a little piece of leftover velvet. My boyfriend was so excited of the fact that it's made from my panties that he quickly grabbed it and put it in his hair. So I made another one (In less than a minute) made only from a blue/black elastic for his beard.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Piglet on: April 02, 2010 06:18:05 AM
A paper mache piglet. My first paper mache work (except for fooling around when I was a kid). Quite clumsy but I guess I'll get the skill later.
