11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sketches from the past year on: April 29, 2013 11:58:31 AM
I haven't posted much in the past few years because I was so busy with school Sad. Now that I'm done my undergrad (yay!) I thought I'd post some of my sketches from the past year (from newest to oldest). Hopefully I'll have more time for art and crafting now because I really miss it!

Bad Ass - I just drew this guy last night after watching The Place Beyond the Pines. I really need to practice drawing portraits again, I'm a bit rusty  Undecided

Fawn - I'd like to turn this drawing into a watercolor painting

Thanks for looking Cheesy
12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "el fauno y la luna" - watercolor FINALLY DONE on: March 05, 2013 05:15:41 PM
I've been fixated on this image for the past 5 days and I'm finally done YAYYYY. This is my first COMPLETED watercolor painting so I have a lot to work on! I'm not particularly happy with the tree portion of the background... so clearly I need to practice my backgrounds! I was so rushed to get this piece done that I think the composition suffered. Otherwise, I'm really REALLY happy with how the subjects turned out Smiley PS of all things to really mess up I completely effed my signature Angry oh well, I'll probably cut that out anyways Tongue Here it is:

And a close up

C&C appreciated!
13  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / la luna y el fauno on: March 02, 2013 11:11:26 AM
I drew this handsome guy last night after watching Pan's Labyrinth. I still have to draw 'la luna' but I'm super happy with how he turned out. I think I might use this image to do a watercolor painting (I love the look of watercolor but I haven't had many changes to paint in that medium). Anyways, I hope you all like him Smiley C & C appreciated!

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The lion and the owl repurposed watches on: February 09, 2013 08:41:32 PM
I got my idea for this from a pin (pinterest addict right here) Cheesy Someone had taken vintage watches and put old pictures of family members into them. Since I got these watches from a thrift store and had no emotional attachment to them I decided to fill them with artwork of my favorite animals. I LOOOOOOVE barn owls and big cats!!

This was the most annoyingly tedious craft I've undertaken in a while but I think it was worth it. So... y'all better like it Wink


The guts


Another option that I decided against.. I still really like it though so I might save it for a rainy day

I have to figure out what to do with the clock faces because I like them too much to throw away... any ideas fellow craftsters?

Thanks for looking Smiley
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Beaded wrap bracelets on: April 09, 2012 10:14:13 AM
Last night I was feeling super guilty because I literally have been laying on the couch for the past 3 days instead of doing homework. But, I had already started watching The Fellowship of the Ring, so I made these 3 bracelets instead Cheesy I didn't intend to do this but the colors really remind me of spring! I think the green one is my favorite. Enjoy!

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Leather wrap green jade bracelet on: March 03, 2012 08:29:44 PM
It has been far far too long since I've posted anything in craftster!

I saw a tutorial for this bracelet online and decided I had to make one for myself. I used 2mm brown leather cord, jade beads, green sewing thread, and a jewel charm for the clasp.

You can find the tutorial here: http://www.rings-things.com/blog/2011/03/08/how-to-make-wrapped-leather-bracelets/#.T1LucvFBt2B

Hope you all like my rendition of the leather wrap bracelet Smiley

17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Eve on: December 03, 2010 11:13:45 PM
A friend asked me to paint her a picture of a tree using only black, white and red, and this is what resulted! I used acrylic paint on canvas. The second picture is more true to the actual color. I haven't decided whether I should call her "Eve's Bane" or just "Eve". Comments, criticisms, and opinions welcome!

18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Woman King on: October 24, 2010 05:54:06 PM
Hey guys!
I've been very MIA lately. School has been very time consuming and I haven't had much time for projects. About a week ago, I was feeling very unmotivated, so I pulled out an old, unfinished painting to get some of my frustrations out. I actually finished it, and "Woman King" was born. I was REALLY inspired by Sylvia Ji this time around (she's amazing!!). The name Woman King comes from the song of the same name by Iron and Wine.



Thanks for looking!
C&C very welcome
19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / The Squirrel Family Tree House... in a cabinet! on: July 29, 2010 03:17:36 PM
I made this cabinet for .:dollface:. in the Woodland Creature swap. It was largely inspired by Spooky Pooky's cryptid cabinets. The cabinet is from value village, which I sanded to give an antique look. I used sculpey clay for the squirrels,dishes and door and paper for the tables, chairs and grandfather clock. The foliage is made from fake vines and other plants, the grass is dried moss, and the bark is from my moms front garden Cheesy haha. Comments and criticisms much appreciated!

20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Treasure Island Charm Bracelet on: June 10, 2010 09:22:15 PM
For the loaded charm bracelet swap rd. 2, I made my partner a Treasure Island themed bracelet. I used lost of white and grey pearls, along with shell and white cracked glass. The charms were a compas, a sea bird, a picture of a parrot, I big jewel, a treasure chest, a bottle filled with glass and shells, a locket, a picture frame, a treasure map that says "property of Davy Jones" on the back, and a pirate ship. The clasp was a lock and key. I like the way it turned out and I think I'll have to make myself one in the future! C&C welcome!
