1  Re: Wee House Craftalong-Ongoing 2011-Forever! in Craftalongs by anefariousimp on: May 05, 2013 10:06:35 PM
Since I finished my Wee House of Alice last year, I took a long break before tackling my new project which is a Wee Room not an entire House.  I didn't have quite the attention/time to finish doing an entire house anymore, so I'm focusing on roomboxes that will hopefully help me finish them faster!

Here's a WIP shot of it - it's going to be a bakery =)

2  Gothic Inspired Bag using Blue Tape Stencils ~~~~ w/ Mini Tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by anefariousimp on: July 05, 2012 05:10:25 PM
I made this bag using stencils made out of blue tape and some fabric paint.

It started out it's life looking like this but after a year stashed in the back of my closet, I decided that it needed a fresh coat of paint in order to motivate me to carry it out more!

All I did was Google some images and transferred it out on pieces of blue tape layered together.  I used an Exacto knife to cut out the parts (on a cutting mat - not on the purse!!!) that I wanted the paint to fill.

I mixed some acrylic paint with fabric medium (2:1 ratio) to make my own fabric paint!

I painted about 3 coats on the bag - letting it dry 1 hour in between coats or 20 minutes with the help of a blowdryer.  

After it is completely dry, you just need to carefully remove the blue tape with the help of tweezers or an Exacto knife!  I cleaned up my edges with some Q-Tips soaked in nail polish remover.

You might want to lightly iron the bag with a piece of fabric on top of the stenciled portions for 20-30 seconds to really set the fabric paint if you didn't use a blowdryer during the stenciling process.

You can use this method on most bags, but just make sure the blue tape sticks really well to the material so that when you stencil the the images, the fabric paint only goes on the areas that you want it to go.  I hope you have fun breathing new life into purses that are hiding in your closet too Smiley

I really want to start another Wee House but I know that I really don't have any time or space to make a new one, so I did this with scrap pieces of wood to help feed the addiction!

4  Wee House for a Wee Dollhouse =D in Completed Projects by anefariousimp on: July 01, 2012 05:51:02 PM
After having fun completing my Alice House (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410033.0) for the Wee House Craftalong, I had a lot of leftover pieces of wood!  I didn't want to trash them but I also wanted them out of the way, so I turned the odds and ends into a Wee House for a Dollhouse!

It measures 4cm x 4cm x 2cm!!!  This is officially the smallest scale that I have ever worked with and it was super fun. I think next time I am going to plan it out before building one so I can install windows and a working door Smiley

I had just finished my Alice in Wonderland Inspired House for the Wee House Craftalong (post here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410033.0) and thought I would post some pictures of the miniature desserts I made out of polymer clay for the project!

Topsy Turvey Cake, Cookies, Cup and Spoon

Dessert Tray, Croissants, and Macaroon Pops

Milk Bottle w/ Polymer Milk and Rainbow Layered Cake

Assorted Desserts

Dessert Croquet Course

I'm willing to do some tutorials for some of the miniatures if there are strong interest in one or two of the polymer clay items!

7  House of Alice (Picture Heavy - 20ish) in Completed Projects by anefariousimp on: June 13, 2012 07:38:58 PM
I finally finished my Alice in Wonderland inspired house for Knickertwist's Wee House Craftalong - I started it in August 2011 and finished it in June 2012.  IT was a blast working on this house!!  I built everything inside of the house using different mediums (jewelry findings, wood, acrylic, polymer clay).

The Front (I kept it sedate to mask that party in the back Wink)

Close up of the Sign

The Mad Hatter Tea Party Room (This room stumped me for the longest time!)

Topsy Turvey Cake and Falling Cookies

The Mad Hatter Chair (The numbers on the playing card represent the month I finished the house)

The Alice Chair and March Hare Chair

8  Vampire Dessert Picnic in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by anefariousimp on: March 17, 2012 08:36:01 PM
For the Creepy Cute Swap, I made this vampire dessert picnic scene for my partner.  Everything is sculpted out of polymer clay and the dessert trays are handcrafted out of metal findings.  It was my first time attempting a rainbow cake and it was a lot of fun.
