11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / First EVER ATCs!! on: September 10, 2011 08:31:04 PM
I have been in an art block the last few days, and I thought that doing a couple little pieces of art would ease my mind! It's my first ever ones, and I was VERY careful to make sure the dimensions are right. xD

Please enjoy, and if you would like any of these, let me know! Maybe we can trade or something. The owls are drawn in pencil, and the girl is done in markers, on very sturdy watercolor paper (my info all on the back). If you want any of these, I will make sure to put them in a protective cover so the pencil doesn't smudge. ^^

Hopefully they will get better as my art block goes away, I don't think these are my best work, but I tried to overcome the odds. Thanks so much for looking, let me know what you think!

12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / "Proto" Sock Doll on: September 06, 2011 08:01:23 PM
I am new to making dolls, so please bear with me and the lack of quality. I'm slowly getting better, and as soon as I get the appropriate materials, I can start making them!

This is "Proto", the first full-sized sock doll I have made. She's made of nothing but socks and some stuffing, along with a little yarn.

It was hard to sew the arms, so I think the next time I those on, I am going to put a "skin" over the arms to cover any seams. I'm also going to making the clothes out of felt, I put scrap socks on her because I didn't want her to be naked. xD

Please give me feedback! I need to get better, and I would love to discuss some thing I did good on, need to improve on.
13  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Bo/dy: My Sculpture of Sorts. Sorta Pic Heavy! on: November 18, 2010 10:30:40 PM
This is an assignment for my 3D Studies class. It is an assemblage sculpture/collage, and it is supposed to describe me. It was difficult to express myself through sculpting (I never thought I was great at it), but I think I did a pretty decent job.

This is when I first began. I took a 2 liter cola bottle, and cut out the ribs. I tried EVERYTHING to make it look good. Paint, tape, more paint, more tape. I ended up taking some yarn and tediously wrapping it around the whole thing. I am very pleased with the way they turned out. Smiley

The spine was fun. I took some toilet paper tubes, and cut them. Then, I paper mached them, let 'em dry, and painted white. For support, there is a cut up clothes hanger in the middle. Hot glue for the discs between the spine bones.

As you can see, the base is made from another pop bottle. I stabbed a hole in the lid and glued the hanger in to make sure it wouldn't flop around. Because that wouldn't make for a good sculpture! xD

Here is my finished piece! I got done tonight, finally.

This is the back side. The branches are made from pipe cleaners, and a little yarn here and there to give it some character (I just made that up.).

Here is the bottom, where the pop bottle is covered up with some grass made from pipe cleaners. I glued down the bottle to some cardboard, and painted that black.

My "leaves" are actually paper I cut to look like feathers, but I think they turned out to look like palm tree leaves. Ah well.  Roll Eyes

For a final touch, my boyfriend thought it would be cute to add some little video game things, because after all, this sculpture is supposed to represent myself. So I took some foam, drew on some controllers, and glued them on.

Phew! Sorry for all the pictures, I really am proud of this and wanted to share with the world. I am having this critiqued tomorrow for my class, I hope I do well. Smiley

14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Majora's Mask Halloween Costume! on: November 01, 2010 11:57:17 AM
So, only three days before the Halloween Block Party, I had to come up with something good. I made the mask from Cardboard (The base of the mask), Foam, and lots of hot glue. And Yarn! This took me FOREVER to make, it is almost like a mosaic. The pieces of foam were cut into pieces, and glued onto the cardboard.

I think I did an alright job. Cheesy
Please let me know what you think!

Finally, I have 10 posts, let's see if I can post a picture of my newest art project.

Done in ink wash, and Prisma markers. Took me around 3-4 hours total, to complete.

Let me know what you think! Smiley

My Bird and Cat, with a gas mask on, done in scratch art paper and a very sharp knife.

My Cat and Mouse, done in tiny dots from the tip of an ink pen.
