OK so this was my first swap and after the package I received from JasmineWolverine I am ... SO HOOKED!! Awesome painting...love the idea of breaking it into 2 pieces! the bracelet and the earrings have whale sized cute factor going on! The stickers barely made it out of the box before the kids were wanting to put them all on!

I truly love what everyone has made what a great group of artsy fartsies and it's been so much fun. Thanks again Jasmine Wolverine!! I love my package and will be analyzing your painting techniques for awhile.  Grin

2  Octo...nephew in Needlework: Completed Projects by KirBee on: February 07, 2012 08:41:44 PM
Well, its far from perfect but it was made with lots of love for my nephews first birthday. This was my first ever felt tacking so I think it turned out pretty well. Some of the areas are a little wonky because it was 2:00am and I literally used every bit of thread. I only had enough to tie the last knot with the needle. Sorry my camera takes such bad pictures.

Yes it is meant to be off-center. lol

3  Removable wall decals...cheap! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by KirBee on: January 13, 2012 02:24:22 PM
Hey everyone, I came across a tutorial by Queen Mab, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=396675.0 that I just loved. She used spray starch and fabric to create an adorable Christmas tree. I wanted to see if I could do the same to make a design on my bedroom wall. It's not perfect but I like it for my first attempt. I will probably add more elments to it later.

I do have a few notes to make.
I used a satin like fabric which of course shows more imperfections like bumps or places where the starch was a little thick, I don't think I would recommend that type of fabric for a fellow first timer.
 I also had to starch and iron the fabric before I put it on the wall, this helped lay it flat on the wall since its flimsy fabric and bigger pieces.
Lastly, I had to use the iron directly on the fabric on the wall just to dry it quick enough so the piece didn't peel off.
Hope you'll give it a try I think the possibilities are endless! I know I will do it again with maybe more complex designs.
