21  How much do I charge- collage/embroidery? *updated pics!* in Get Product and Website Opinions by SuzukiBeane33 on: October 22, 2006 07:55:16 PM
I got inspired by some recent scrapbooking I did and wanted to make some higher-end collages for single mounted photos since I haven't seen too many of those around.  This is my first one, and I spent about 4 hours on it today.  Everything is hand-sewn to the base paper.  I'm really trying to find the fine line between making something that looks simple and elegant without being too basic and cheap looking.

My question is, how much do you think I should charge for something like this?  What if I put it in a frame? (I'm thinking particularly of some nice $12 ones that I saw at Target).  If you saw this in a store would you think, "I love this, I must have it!" or would you think, "This is o.k., but I could make a better one." 

I tried to take better pictures today- I hope the details show a bit more.

This one is a little difficult to see because I intentionally made it monochromatic:

And a different style:

I wish you could see all the stitching, but anyway, I hope these pictures show what I mean a bit more. Thanks!

22  Queen of Cups jar in Completed Projects by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 25, 2006 07:22:56 AM
I've been making a bunch of shadowboxes with these tarot cards I found, but when I finally ran out of frames, I had to branch out!  I've been meaning to make something tea-related with the Queen of Cups card, so I made a jar for holding tea and tea-related items.

Here she is:

Detail of the pearls and seashells:

*sorry, I know the picture's not that great!

And the top (the pink is mulberry paper that I mod-podged to the lid):

23  Quick and easy button use wristband in Knitting: Completed Projects by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 23, 2006 06:54:20 PM
I found these great pins at Value Village and wanted a way to show them off, so I knitted up this quick wristband, and I love it!  Since I wore the wristband at work, the yarn got a little felted, so now it's nice and fuzzy. 

Here's the guy:

And the action shot:

Post if you make some!

I'm not quite finished this one, but I"m pretty excited about it so I'm posting a little earlier.
It's a Piratical Love Story:

Details (can you see the mini castle to the left of the words?):

One the inside there is a treasure chest for storing jewelry; I still have to put on in the lower right corner as well:

Mounting the collages in a shadowbox was perfect!  Their quality really expanded exponentially, I'm really happy with the results.

Here is the newest addition, the random glowing orbs are clear glass balls that are loose in the bottom of the box, thrown in with some pearls.  I've also since rearranged the necklace a bit so that it drapes better.


A detail:

The Devil in the box is sort of hard see since everything is so dark, but this looks really really nice under glass:

26  Tarot cards- opinions please! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by SuzukiBeane33 on: March 01, 2006 09:34:54 AM
I just found a really sweet set of tarot cards at a thrift store and want to start making collages on this nice mulberry paper.  I'm thinking about selling them maybe at a local store, and want to hear your opinions!  Be brutally honest!  Also, how much would you pay? 

Here is the first one:

27  Teaset necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SuzukiBeane33 on: February 20, 2006 11:25:49 AM
I found these AMAZING miniature teasets for an Alice and Wonderland party, and decided to make a necklace!  The choker part is pearl beads and the teaset is hung on gold wire.

And a really crappy pic of me wearing the necklace:

28  More Cocotte Eggs in Completed Projects by SuzukiBeane33 on: February 20, 2006 11:15:56 AM
I had a post of some of my other eggs a while back, but instead of making people scroll through to see new eggs, I'm starting a new post.  So here they are, hopefully more will be coming soon!

I cut up and then dried out some pomegranates in the oven for this trio:

Here are details:

There are dried ladybugs on this egg!

This is made from the stopper of a bottle of 1800 Tequila, nails, and red and gold seed beads.

This one is kind of a harbinger of spring!  I added a hair clip at the bottom to wear it, but it's a little too wobbly.


*** Edited February 22 to add new pics***

I just finished my biggest egg project yet, I've been meaning to put it together for a while.  I used some snail shells that my brother gave me from Vermont, dried leaves from a giant poinsettia (I loved the way they curled up when dried!) and five eggshells (yes, I ate them, I made pad thai Smiley ).  I'm thinking of calling it "Nature Baroque".

Here are a few angles/types of lighting:

29  Confetti Cupcake Grandma Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by SuzukiBeane33 on: January 17, 2006 08:13:04 PM
My gram made this scarf for me, but I wanted to post it to show it off!  The yarn reminds me of that confetti cupcake batter (mmm!)  And there's also some plaid-like ribbing and beads added as details too, to top it all off.

Here's me modeling the scarf:

A close-up of the yarn and pattern:

And the bead details (they're at both ends of the scarf):

Hey everyone, I didn't join in this swap, but I was really inspired by it!  I wanted to do something cute with an Altoid tin, so here it is:
