31  Raven Domino Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RougeRaven on: August 16, 2009 10:10:49 AM
I normally don't make jewelry, but once I saw people making those altered domino pieces (yes, I am way behind on the times) I just had to make one.

I simply stamped my image using some "permanent ink" and then colored in the negative portion of the image with acrylic paints. I sealed it with both a spray and a coat of nail polish to give it a glossy finish.

I've been working in my altered journal for a while now, most of it has just been a lot of writing with a small doodle or two so I haven't been posting. But here are a couple of the more crafty pages:

Self Portrait page:


Also, a question- I just bought a beautiful sketchbook to start working in and it turns out the pages absolutely hates watercolors; it soaks them up immediately and won't let me spread them over the page. So, is there anything I can do to fix this?

And some little paper cranes, flowers, beads and confetti:

 Grin I just received my stepsons doll from snazzlecraft and he is perfect! I really wanted a waldorf style doll for Sage but I was too intimidated to make one myself. He has blonde hair and blue eyes to match my sons (action photos to come in a month when I see him). He also came with a snuggly blanket, two bedtime story books (Aesop's Fables and The Ugly Duckling), a matching set of pjs for Sage (!), and patterns created by Snazzlecraft for the doll!

Thank you so much ladies, I am in love with all of it!

I received my tiny house of awesomeness today and I am in love with it!

A cozy fairy like house in the woods

(The little red ball is actually a teeny bell)

Getting to know the neighbors

The tiny person inside must be working deep into the night

Human perspective

I thought about putting it in my kids' room as a night light but I love it too much, it'll relocate to the neighborhood that is my craft room

38  Brobee plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RougeRaven on: January 02, 2009 01:12:41 PM
My sister's best friend graduated and I some got suckered into making her present. She is obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba (she's 19, by the way) so I made her a Brobee doll. I admit, he's pretty cute but he was a real pain in the ass to make. I made the pattern myself and he is made of felt, but because I didn't want to show any of my seams I had to sew him inside out. I had to fold his limbs to fit inside the space of his body in order to attach them, which was the hardest part. They are perfectly aligned, but that's how handmade stuff goes. I'll never make another one, but I am pleased with how he turned out.

His mouth is attached with Velcro so he can wear his happy or sad face

After a long break I have more pages to show you, some from my old altered book and some from my newest one  Smiley I'm addicted to these things:

Old book for my man:
This is the introduction page of the different "faces of Dave" that I posted a long time back. My mother-in-law sent me home with a tiny pack of cards last August, so I encorporated some of the male face cards in this page.

Part 1 of a 2 page spread, focusing on a specific walk in the woods I took with Dave.

Part 2

New Book:

I wanted to sign up for the tiny house swap but I couldn't contain myself any longer so I started a new book to satisfy myself

This was actually the first page I did. I had seen a tiny house "of cards" and it inspired me. I had planned to just cover the page revealed by the cut out with cards but then I got the idea of transforming the Queen of Hearts card into a sort of Virgin Mary/Virgin de Guadalupe shrine, so I added the scared heart onto her. Then I played off the idea of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, so then I did the "painting the roses red page."

I wanted to tie in the rose theme and bring the four pages together with the War of the Roses

This is the latest felt name book I made for my oldest, Ceilidh (Kaylee). I would normally only post a couple of pics and then link to my blog, but I'm trying to mess around with image resizing so please bear with me.

Cover- full skein of thread in chain stitch on lace patterned pink felt

C is for candy

E is for egg

I is for island

L is for lamb

I (again) is for ice cream

D is for our dog
