Thanks guys! :3
When I made it I was like "wow this turned out a lot better than I expected!" but when she told me I was a semi finalist, I was like *twitch twitch* and couldn't believe it!!!  Grin

And I have a strange obsession with trees too, (especially leafless ones) so it's ok Cheesy
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Copper Foil Tree Sculpture on: June 09, 2011 11:35:35 AM

I'm usually stalking the art board on here, but am never really confident enough to post anything.  I'm better with fabric usually  Wink  So anyways, I made this tree for an art project inspired by Alexander Calder.  It's made out of copper foil and a laminate block base covered in the silver side of the foil. 

I made it a few months ago, and it took me a few weeks of art classes that I had twice a week.  It was presented in our art show last Tuesday, and my school headmaster said "it was the most beautiful piece of art that has ever come out of our school's art program"  Grin AHH! Cheesy
 So once I had finished it, my art teacher told me that she was entering it into a contest, and I HAD to say yes.  I had kinda brushed it off, and I didn't think it was that big of a contest, but today (our last day of school,) during our awards ceremony I was informed that it was a *semi-finalist* in the National Endowment for the Arts High School Art Competition!!!!!!!!   Grin Grin Out of 12,000 entries, mine is in the top thousand!!! So now I must wait until the beginning of July to see if I am one of 500 finalists, and if I am, I have to send it to Washington D.C. for it to be in an exhibit in the National Museum of Art!!! Cheesy 

Who would have thought that a freshman from a tiny private school in Vermont would have pulled that off??? I'm so psyched!! Cheesy

I'll keep you updated if I hear anything else!!!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I could have done something normal...Prom dress :D on: May 16, 2011 01:32:58 PM
My school doesn't have "prom..." Instead, we have "formal," which is like a mini version of prom with a dress code...1" straps, knee length dresses, nothing low cut...you get the idea.  Well, I wanted something  EPIC for my freshman year Cheesy  So I decided on a draped bodice, a super colorful dress, and a hi-low pick-up skirt  Grin  I might just be insane...

And thus, this was birthed:

It took 4 days of nearly constant sewing
and 6 hours worth of Glee while sewing pick-ups in

I don't have a whole lot to ramble on about during this post like I normally do, so just sit back and relax Tongue

Our dresses :3 I made mine and the teal short one on the end for my friend

for the first time ever putting in an invisible zipper *without* an invisible zipper foot, I think it turned out pretty dandy

I lurve this draping (I promise it's not that wrinkled!!)

Me and my best friend, Jena, whose dress I whipped out in a day because she was telling me she couldn't afford a dress and wasn't going to go! D:

thanks for looking!!! If you guys want more pictures of detail or have any questions, just ask Cheesy

God bless!  Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I'm BACK! (prom dress question) on: March 27, 2011 01:12:58 PM
hokay so. here's the dealio...

I haven't made much of anything since the last challenge dress I made (I'm brainstorming for the back to the basics challenge!) and I've gone off to plan my formal dress...and I have a question Tongue Normally I'd just wing it, but I don't want to screw this up...because I'm actually going to like remember it...

My school has a "formal" (like prom, but tiny and under control) and there's a dress code.  I want to do something edgier because most of the girls at my school are really girly and fancy when it comes to dressing up, and I can be, but don't want to for formal Tongue  So I have to have at least 1" straps and nothing super low cut, and the dress has to come to my knees when standing.  I'm planing on making a hi-low (knee length to floor length, front to back) pick up skirt, but I want it to have body and not just hang straight down.  How can I do that without something sticking out of the shorter part?

Thankssss Cheesy

GREAT JOB!   Did you put a facing in it?  if so, how did you manage the V detail?  It's just so incredible.  maybe if people were poorer, they would be more inventive as you are!  Or not... like me, we just walk around in rags.  Doesn't help that I am a 10 and not a four. 

the two panels from the jacket that I used for the detail already had a cloth-y kind of interfacing already in it, so it made it a lot easier.  It's kind of hard to explain..haha.  And thank you Smiley  This dress was kind of a spur-of-the-moment design.  I just knew I wanted a fancy dress and something with a tone-on-tone print, and out came this  Tongue

it looks like you just cut a slice down the middle of the strap to get it to look like it has a hole or a double strap? well if it is just a single slice, then it will just look like a big strap when you wear it because the edges of the slice meet up and yeah...you could try cutting out a diamond shaped (but not like suuuuper pointed, just kind of an oblong shape...uh, like an almond! >Tongue) hehe sorry...sleep deprivation O_O
