Thanks for the wonderful compliments!

I so want to do some more! A Ladies Edition with Wonder Woman & Catwoman, but I'm currently stumped on who to use as the whole "regular folks" who work behind the scenes for them. They just might get their own little side series. Smiley I will post them for sure.

Thanks so much folks! Smiley I was thinking about printing off some postcards of these guys...but I think I need more than four designs for a set. hmmm, i do like even numbers...hmmm, maybe I need to add another villian or two to even out the good vs. evil of it all. Smiley hmmmm....any thoughts, panel of crafty experts?

Soooo, I've been watching ALOT of comic book movies lately with my boyfriend. And I was totally inspired to create this small series, Unsung Heroes, of quirky art. I hand drew/colored/painted everything with some digital enhancing once I scanned it into my computer. This was my very first attempt with this type of artwork, so I hope someone out there in craftland likes it too!

P.S. I have a free & fun coloring page version of "Batman's Janitor" on my blog as well as other original coloring pages.

C&C welcome!

25  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / transfer girls t-shirt on: May 23, 2012 09:56:48 AM
This was my first time using iron on transfer paper of any sort. Using the specialized (and pricy) paper I printed off the image i created on my ink jet printer. Then i colored it in with crayons and markers like it suggested on the package. Then i ironed it on. It was super easy and great idea for kids since you could in theory, forgo the printer and doodle directly on the paper. I also liked that the image didn't have to be reversed....b/c other techniques i looked into were slightly confusing to a newbie like myself. Smiley but i will definitely investigate as many printing techniques as possible. esp. ones that allow for multiple use screens. the wording on the t-shirt: "My daddy doesn't hear your propaganda." and it is intended for a 6 yr old girl with hip parents. hope you like it!

26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Funky Pendants on: May 23, 2012 09:38:58 AM
i recently made these for my BFF's sister. i definitely raided my stash using such things as cheapy hoop earring, wire, beads, hemp, denim, embroidery floss, and iron on transfer paper for the kaleidoscope image (which was made from a pic of Eddie Vedder whom she adores.) i love how eclectic they are.

and i had some laminated paper art i made months ago which i used as packaging....just to be fancy since i was mailing them.

I busted my jewelry stash. With an old hoop earring, some broken jewelry to harvest, and some wire- and BAM! my new favorite thing. Smiley

29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Our Most Beautiful Umbrella (Tree) Hoop on: June 30, 2011 05:47:42 AM
i actually started with the tree and added the words kinda last minute. i wish they were less wonky, but i ended up liking the childlike quality it gives it. i did the lettering while riding in the car, so shame on me thinking i could do THAT. it was a little to bumpy for neat stitching with my mother in law popping curbs every 5 minutes. Wink thanks for commenting sushicandy! i totally love your lettering in your mermaid piece, btw. Smiley
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Our Most Beautiful Umbrella (Tree) Hoop on: June 30, 2011 05:33:23 AM
My very good friend's very good sister recently moved her adorable little family to a new home in a new town in beautiful Utah. Before she left she took this amazing photo of a tree in their front yard, she even wrote a very poetic caption on facebook. i was instantly inspired to make her a stitched tribute for her new home. I freehanded the whole sh'bang. I even worked in all of her family members names within the abstract leaves. Vintage buttons from my stash as well! I'm in love with the texture and playfulness of this hoop. I decided to use my favorite quote from her poem, "our most beautiful umbrella..." but here's the whole thing:

"goodbye to our tree. in the spring, it's our most beautiful umbrella, so green you can't stop looking up at it. so cool underneath, and it even keeps you totally dry in the rain. in the fall, as its leaves turn into golden beauty, it secretly produces the most dangerous spiked weapons ever to be created by nature. a very dirty trick. and in the winter, when all of the other bare trees are wonderfully silhouetted against an orange sky, it seems perfectly content bein' just plain ugly. i don't think it even tries. i think of medusa struck by lightening. i have a complicated relationship with this tree, and we will miss each other."

i think i may continue with the imagery of her writing and make more inspired by different phrases...like the different seasons, perhaps. I absolutely loved working on this project. I just love working on crafts for people who i know will really appreciate the thought. Smiley

C&C please my fellow crafty dearies!

Thanks for looking!
