2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recycled Office Paper Wedding Dress on: August 14, 2017 03:55:04 PM
So GISHWHES just ended, and one of the prompts this year was to create a wedding dress out of recycled office paper. 



It was constructed right on the body so it would actually fit.



Some close ups:











This was the front piece after taking it off, just to show some of the internal construction.



It was crazy and fun to make!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Junk Journal (VERY IMAGE HEAVY) on: May 25, 2017 09:21:48 PM
Strap in for a ton of photos!

I was paired with stellato_escuro in the Junk Journal Swap, and this is what I made.



The cover was a white hardback blank cover that I painted teal-ish, and then dry brushed with a dark mustard yellow color.  I wanted it to kind of look like a worn painted piece of furniture.  I scraped and dented it a little to give it an even more distressed look.  The closure is an elastic band that I sewed (and glued) the rose bead/gem onto.







I did a hidden pamphlet stitch binding, which I really like, using some vintage crochet thread.  I pulled a couple of the binding tails up and over the edge to attach the charms.



stellato_escuro mentioned a few things she might like, including fold outs, envelopes/pockets/tuck spots, and vintage ephemera.  I definitely tried to oblige.  Grin  She is also an artist, so I took a little more of a minimalist approach to page and cover decoration, leaving a lot of open spaces for her to work her own magic.  I mostly just tried to embellish with even more ephemera.  Cheesy



















































I did some stitching on some of the pages, but it was in white thread and is kind of hard to see in the photos (along the edge of the sheet music below).

























I added fibers and scrap ribbon pieces to lots of paper clips in order to hold extra cards and papers in place.  I like that it tells you something is there to pay attention to, and gives you a way to pull things out of the pockets easily.





















































All of the envelopes and pockets have more paper, "journal" cards, or ephemera inside.  I figured we didn't need more photos in this post, though, so you can just peep the edges. Tongue

















The little composition book below is actually its own notebook with many sheets of graph/lined paper inside.





The right page above and left page below are attached on the two horizontal edges, but open on the outer edge, creating a pocket with more stuff inside.







There is another pocket below on the left, created from gluing together the horizontal edges on two back to back pages.  The pages are just different widths this time.































































Thank you for inspiring the journal and for swapping with me stellato_escuro!  And thank you to all of my previous swap partners who contributed to my paper stash!  I think several swap items made it into this book.  Smiley

Thanks to anyone who made it to the end of this post, too!  Cheesy

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Punch Game on: April 28, 2017 01:41:44 PM
We don't really have young kids in my immediate family anymore, but we still get together and do silly, fun things.  My family has a kind of tradition of making games for us (all adults) to play on Easter.  This year I made a "punch" game (or really more of a "stab" or "poke" in this case). 



It is made with paper cups covered in tissue paper and hot glued to a piece of foam core.  Most of the cups had a prize inside...candy, gift card, lottery tickets, etc. 



I wanted to do a spinner, but wasn't happy with how they were spinning, so instead cut up some color coordinating papers and wrote numbers on them.  So, for instance, if you picked a pink piece of paper with the number two on it, you could punch two pink cups.  I held them all in a coordinating bag that I previously sewed and borrowed for the game. Smiley  I had to do math so the papers/numbers would line up with the number of cups available, so in that way I suppose it's better than a random spinner result. 



A lot of the things (cups, foam core, tissue paper, ribbon, a few candy items) came from the dollar store, so not a terribly expensive thing to make, either.  I didn't do any separate treats or baskets for anyone; they had to win their treats in the game, so I probably actually saved money overall. Cheesy



It was actually pretty fun to make, and play, too, according to all of the other adults at Easter.  Grin  I might do something similar again in the future.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Midnight Tree Mini Art Quilt on: April 28, 2017 01:18:12 PM
I made this for wdicwg in the Mini Art Quilt Swap 8, to fit her Tree theme.



The background was pieced from about 12 different black fabrics.  I was inspired to use the different blacks by the abstract paintings of Ad Reinhardt.  I stitched in the ditch on a few "anchor" rows, but decided not to heavily quilt the back.  I wanted it to have some movement, and match the tree in a seemingly brisk, windy night.  I debated this quite a bit because I didn't want it to look unfinished, but I got some feedback, and tried a couple sections, and ended up picking out/deleting a bunch of stitches from a test area.  I liked it a lot better this way.  



I decided to go a little more heavy on the "art" element and made the tree using variegated yarn with a tinsel/metallic strand in darker "peacock" style colors to match my partner's room color-theme.  I twisted and placed and stitched it down in tiny, tiny sections, which ended up taking a couple of days to get right.  I cut and hand-tinted the leaves so they would be a complementary shade of green, and added some beading on each leaf to give it a little more sparkle.



The back has two tabs to hang.  I wanted a darker look overall, and a little hint of whimsy, so I was holding her other theme of "Tim Burton" in the back of my mind.  It's not a direct inspiration, but was an influence on some of my decisions, for sure. Smiley



I was really pleased with how it turned out...kind of dark from afar, but a lot going on up close.  Thanks for looking!  Hope you enjoy, wdicwg!
