1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Portrait of Ryan Donowho on: May 21, 2007 12:28:05 PM
By far my favorite piece from my drawing class this spring.

It was drawn with white prisma color pencil on black paper. It was really awkward drawing the highlights instead of the shadows. But the end result is pretty neat looking! My friend wants me to do one of David Bowie for her.  Cheesy

This is the picture i drew from

Not an exact likeness in the least, but I blame that on it being my first try drawing backwards with white on black. And the cross-hatching is a little less apparent in real life, too.

and it looks good sideways, too.  Tongue
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / hat with earflaps! on: October 31, 2006 01:03:22 PM
My first ear flap hat! And without a pattern, too. I am very proud of myself...I'm usually rather dependant on patterns.

I got more yarn the other day to make more of them.  Grin

What do you think?
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / troll hair? on: October 22, 2006 06:57:12 AM
I have pink hair, and I wanted to work around that for halloween. My favorite idea so far is a troll doll! My hair is between my shoulders and elbows, so when up right, it's the perfect length, but I don't know how I would go about getting it to stay that way. Are there any products you can reccomend?
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Painted Roller Skates on: August 12, 2005 09:57:28 PM
For my friend's birthday, i painted her a pair of roller skates.

I forgot to take pictures, so this is the only one there is. I used regular acrylic paints. the heel part was painted black and the very back part (the spine of the boot?) was red. And I put a clear varnish on it afterwards. Hope you like em.  Smiley
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / long hair styles... on: May 29, 2005 06:17:01 PM
Recently I searched for hair styles on here, thinking...crafty people...crafty hair. And I saw a few other topics asking the same thing. So, I'm putting these up here only so I didn't have to find them all and reply to each and what not. Or because I'm lazy. Whichever.

This one is a variation of something I saw on a braiding site where they had two braided pigtails wrapped around eachother like a figure 8. You'll need pretty long hair to do this one...mine is an inch or two past my elbows.

http://dreamweaverbraiding.com  <---the website. They've got tons of pictures of cool braids - but most of them i couldn't imagine trying to do to yourself.

I french braided it back, but you don't need to. Just take three even amounts of hair and tie them back whever is comfortable

It's a little hard to take a picture of the back of your head...but what you do is braid the three sections of you hair. Put the middle one into a bun, and bobby pin it in place. Braid each of the outer sections of hair as well, and start wrapping them in their own buns in separate directions. Bobby pin those in place. Take either one and wrap it over or under (depending on which way you started the bun) the big bun in the middle, and under the bun on the other side. Then do the same to the other bun, going over instead of under or vise versa.

The second one you don't need as much hair - just lots of hair ties.  Smiley
It's pretty much a french ponytail but you cross them instead of going straight back.

Part your hair all the way to your neck (as they are pigtails). It starts out with two tiny pigtails at the front of your head. Then on one side you take another section of hair without taking what is already in the hair tie. take the hair from the hair tie on the other side of your head, twist it a few times, and cross it over to the section you're holding, and tie it all together. Do the same to the other side of your head, and you should have a cross!

Do the same thing with the rest of your hair, so you just have crosses going all the way down. I did twists with the rest of my hair...all you do is break you hair into two sections. Twist each of them in the same direction, and then twist them together in the opposite direction. If you've ever spun yarn, its the same thing.

Whenever I go to six flags I put my hair in pigtails so i don't get blinded on roller coasters, and ponytails make it uncomfortable to lean back. So I have many-a-pigtail styles if anyone is interested.  Smiley

Hope I helped someone or at least gave someone an idea...
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tee-shirt, purse, and some yarn. on: February 15, 2005 03:42:15 PM
Yay, my first post!

When the new tamagotchis came out, my friend and I went crazy and got eachother one for christmas. They're just as cool as they were when i was in third grade, so i wanted to make a shirt to show my joy. When they're playing the jumping game there's a guy that comes on the screen and he goes 'ready' 'go!', and i absolutely love him. It's my first stenciling try, so it's a bit messy...plus i was using a checkered stencil, which meant i had to do it twice for each spot, if you know what I mean...

The Front

The Back

As you can see, i messed up a lot and covered it with black paint...but for my first time i think it turned out pretty well. Plus, how can you not love the GO!! guy?

Then, just because the pictures were already on my computer and they're crafty...

This is a purse I made out of an old pair of pants. I didn't use anything to keep the shape, so it's really floppy, but i like it that way.

And this is some yarn I finished spinning last month. I don't spin very often, but it's still nice sometimes. It's half wool...the orange....and then the white is my dog's hair. She's a keeshund...a big poof of a dog.

Hope you like them!  Grin
