41  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jackalope! With a Magic Swishy Fire Stick and Pink Smoke! on: February 08, 2013 09:20:29 PM
Although it doesn't tend to show, my favorite subjects to paint are animals with a fantasy or surreal spin to them.
Meet Mr. Jackalope, with non-traditional kudu horns instead of the usual pronghorn-style horns.

I painted this as a gift for a friend that made me the most INCREDIBLE hand-made sketch book. The thing feels like there is magic inside, like the contents are recipes for spells and magic potions. Tehee.

Yet another feather painting! This one was actually done to display in an art gallery, but it is now back safely in my home.

Painted on two peacock wing feathers that have been glued together, and painted on with acrylic paints.

All were painted with acrylics, on white bristol.

46  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Your Favorite T-Shirt Recons? on: September 06, 2012 03:06:59 PM
I've been on a t-shirt surgery inspiration kick lately, started a board on Pinterest of all the lovely recons that I would love to try.
My board --> http://pinterest.com/daytimeheroes/adopt-a-t-shirt/

Totally hit up a thrift shop yesterday, bought a handful of way oversized dirt-cheap shirts in some nice colours/patterns, now just to find the right inspiration!

Show me your faves! Links, photos, Pinterest boards, etc!
Lets make a collection!  Grin

48  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Best places to get cocoa and shea butter? (Online & Real Stores) on: August 22, 2012 01:23:05 PM
My mother and I have found a huge fascination in the art of making cosmetics, body products and the like. For our first experiment we want to try making knock-off LUSH hard massage lotion bars. The recipe requires cocoa and Shea butters.

So my question is, where is the best place to get cocoa and Shea butter, price-wise?
49  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Is it possible to make shoe soles? In any way, shape, or form? on: August 08, 2012 07:51:37 AM
I'm especially looking for a way to create a rubberized splendor mocassins, though any other shoe type is great.

50  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tribal Sundress with Bustier-style bodice on: July 27, 2012 02:53:25 PM

Though I can't take complete credit for the design (as I referenced another dress that I had), I did have to make the pattern myself. I'm pretty happy with this little dress, can't wait to wear it out!

For the fabric, a lovely pale blue cotton with browns and whites in a tribal pattern that I "stole" (she let me have it) from my grandmother's fabric stash. I should have measured the yardage that I took, but I didn't. It was wide enough to wrap around me 1.5 times and was about half way down my shins if I wrapped the fabric around my like a towel (under my arms). I ended up with a piece about 10" by 5". Close call!

Its partially lined (the bodice), and has shirring in the back, so no zipper! My first time shirring. I LOVE IT. Turned out perfectly, and its very comfortable. Super super easy too.

I plan on using this pattern again soon! Can't have too many sundresses!  Cheesy
