602  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: needle book swap gallery on: February 12, 2011 12:13:17 PM
i recieved my package last night from terracruiz and i got super spoiled Smiley i got a really nice needle book with sherlock holmes on it (im completely obsessed with all the old sherlock holmes)

 and i got lots of extras. i got a hello kitty bag to hold grocery bags and a bunch of candy...its all been stolen already...there was also reese cups but they got eatten before i could take the picture. i got to keep the mustache from the lollipop though so it was fine Cheesy

i also got some really cool erasers, ribbon and little clips with frogs and lady bugs which are so cute.

she also sent me some paper flowers and stamps

and awesome stickers, a note book, slide mounts and a baggy full of little trinkets,


thanks so much again terra...this was such a good first swap to do.
603  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Chewbacca of the Dead on: February 01, 2011 06:35:24 AM
this is really well done...and honestly I'm not really a star wars fan...but i LOVE chewy lol, if that makes sense. Art is actually a weird thing...if i take and art image, and redo it in a different medium as long as my name is on it i can sell it as my own...or with telling people who the original was done by. for art class we had to go to the net and find a pic we liked change it to into a cross hatch drawing and then do all the other steps to make it into a print. because we changed whatever art we chose into a different style it now becomes ours, its not the same as a direct copy. I'm not sure about tracing their exact image though...but i was taught to believe that was cheating unless its your own image but that's just how art teachers are. maybe if you looked at the image and drew it free hand it'd turn out even better anyway. my friends in that class had to have me draw theirs out because they couldn't, sometimes its hard to get the proportions correct. Though i can understand not doing it for other reasons Smiley you could always pick your favourite movie or images and change them to that style. theres no harm letting them influence you like that.

*sorry to keep rambling like this i just looked up the art work and i was just wondering, do you know how it was done? is it just an ink drawing? its in a series like a print would be so maybe it was done the old fashioned way but i dont see any indent around the paper that would let me know it was done with the press like prints are.

Ive always loved your dolls, i creeped on your website at all the ones in your gallery and the ones in your shop Smiley how do you attach the hair to them? I also have an appreciation to the fact that you hand sew them all, everything I've done is hand sewn to so i understand the time that has to go into them all.

i think they'd probably look really nice in the wired wrapped jewlery i see all over the place. maybe bracelets or necklaces. ill have to grab some marbles from the dollar store when im out, you can always get a good sized bag from there.
607  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Steampunk hearts on: January 25, 2011 11:26:37 PM
i like how yours turned out Smiley i like the sash on the left one, how it looks like it was sewn on, but i think i like the one on the right even more. im jealous of the shine yours got. can i ask what glaze you used on them? i have a varathane that ive tried using and it makes my things quite shiney but because the hearts i had made with a powder colouring it would come of ever so slightly after baking so i didnt want to brush a glaze on them incase the colour might smudge together a bit more than i'd like.
608  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: my flower photo transferred onto polyclay on: January 25, 2011 11:17:41 PM
I really love how this turned out, Ive been wanting to try doing something like this for a bit now, but i think i want a bit more practice with the clay before i do it. Ive seen tutorials for this done a few ways, one with the iron on transfer sheets, one with a photo copy, and one with a laser printer image but I'm still a bit nervous to try it. To find alot of the info about doing it you just have to google transfer image to polymer clay and you should find alot of the tutorials i had found a while ago, maybe more by now.
609  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: hearts galore on: January 25, 2011 11:13:47 PM
thankyou Cheesy i really liked working with the..almost gears...lol they're not actually gears i got them from the hardware store for like 5 cents each i think they had them marked as some kinda washer or something like that. i wanted to try working with gears like a lot of people have been lately, but i was kinda iffy about buying the big bag i saw on eBay because it was about 30$, though I'm sure it would be money well spent. I'm thinking of getting a watch from the dollar store, and taking it apart to see all the different parts id get from that Smiley
610  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: hand made hair pins on: January 25, 2011 11:08:02 PM
Yeah, they're just normal bobby pins. i know you can get ones with a round flat spot at the end so you can glue stuff to, but my glue is really strong. i tried to break one off of a set i didn't really care for, to see it if was going to just break, and i couldn't so i don't feel i need to buy those ones. i put an indent on the back of the piece of polymer clay before i baked it(by pushing the pin into it) so the pin is a bit set in, i think that's what made it extra sturdy, rather than having a flat bottom to the piece and trying to glue it to the curved end.
