1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 26 (SU CLOSED SO 10/20 and 02/05) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by tapestrymlp on: October 17, 2017 07:37:39 PM
The kids & I finally picked out our Little Visitor! Meet Paige. She's a shy, bookish gal who's been hanging out on our bookshelves for years. But she's ready for some adventures and might even write a few stories of her own!

2  Eowyn Vs. The Witch King Watercolor in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tapestrymlp on: October 16, 2017 11:47:58 PM
This was created as a fundraiser item for relief efforts in Puerto Rico. I donated a custom crafty item or art piece of the winner's choosing and the auction winner really wanted some artwork of Eowyn getting her bad-ass on and facing down the Witch King. I am a visual artist (have to see it to draw it) so I found a reference pic from the 2nd LotR cartoon and went from there. I adjusted the character's face as I don't like the cartoon style the movie used and I also brightened the colors up A LOT.

It's been a while since I made a large art piece (this is 8x10), especially a watercolor, so I was pretty intimidated and hesitant going in, but I really love the way the piece turned out. Hopefully the auction winner adores it as well!

3  Writers & Caffeine Mini in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tapestrymlp on: October 01, 2017 07:21:28 PM
In honor of international coffee day, and as a present for a friend, I whipped this up this morning. It's acrylic on a 6x6 wood frame. Such a fun and fast art project!

5  Hamster Ornament in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by tapestrymlp on: September 09, 2017 09:53:52 PM
Every year our family adds a special ornament to our Christmas tree that commemorates something related to the past year. In 2016, my husband found a hamster & her cage abandoned by a dumpster. Naturally we adopted her!

We named her Ruby Rey Oatmeal Pudge, because we couldn't agree on one name. So everyone in our family got to name her. She quickly became a cherished family pet. I tried to find a hamster ornament for last year, but didn't like any of the ones I found, so I made one.

Sadly, Ruby passed away a week ago. We had her for a little over a year. Every time we hang this ornament on the tree we'll remember how much we loved her & how lucky we were to have her in our lives!

6  Polaroid Quote Art Piece in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tapestrymlp on: September 09, 2017 09:41:31 PM
I made this quote art as a giveaway for a pre-order campaign. My debut YA novel, CHEESUS WAS HERE, came out in April and the quote is from the book.

I used watercolor for the background and the camera is paper piecing, cut using my Silhouette cutting machine.

7  Whimsical Hedgehog Notecards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by tapestrymlp on: September 04, 2017 09:59:44 AM

I received a pack of hedgie notecards ages ago from a craftster swap, but finally ran out a few months ago. Naturally I needed some new cards! Luckily I found a cute quote stamp and I'd received a hand-made hedgie stamp along with the original notecards. Cut up a few butterfly stickers, and some water color pencils, and the result is these.

Eeeeeeee!!!!!!! Check out the awesome that arrived at my door today! Pottermouth has outdone herself again with a beautifully embroidered rendition of Hagrid's Hut. I think it's free-form machine embroidery? So much detail. I love it!

I suspect her sense of proportion is a bit off though ... we agreed to a small craft swap & this embroidery piece is so much more! Thanks for spoiling me Pottermouth! There was also a lovely HP card & Hedwig bumper sticker in my package.

I received a fabulous package from Ludi today! Anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with hedgehogs (we've owned 10). So I was in love the moment I saw this little cutie:

It's hard to tell in the pic, but it's actually stumpwork. The hedgie's nose and muzzle are raised up from the embroidery base. The piece measures approximately 3 & 1/2 inches across. So wee & perfect!

Thanks for a fabulous swap, Ludi!

10  Free Hugs! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by tapestrymlp on: January 24, 2016 08:38:42 PM
Sheepblue and I had a private swap AGES ago (as in almost a year) and I'm just now getting around to posting pics of the piece I made for her.

Emma likes the movie Aliens and has as warped a sense of humor as I do, so I when this idea popped into my head, I knew it would be perfect.

I created a tiny lemonade-stand with the words "Free Hugs" painted in red at the top. Then I made a facehugger and an unhatched pod to accompany it. The stand was made with craft sticks, wood stain and glue. The facehugger and pod are both polymer clay with paint added for detail.
