1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / She Bends Over to Conquer -- painted bookmark, retro movie poster style! on: November 21, 2011 08:30:20 AM
My roommate hosted a murder mystery dinner recently (http://www.amazon.com/How-Host-Murder-Watersdown-Affair/dp/B00000IVSV).  People felt a little awkward at first, naturally, but it was a lot of fun, and the food was FANTASTIC, so I'd say it was pretty darn successful.

The girl who played this character did such a splendid job breaking out as the actress with questionable morals, we were wowed.  Her birthday happened to be a week later, so I decided to make a commemorative bookmark for her.  Acrylic on tagboard (salvaged tights packaging).  <3!

I really advise you to check out the murder mystery dinners.  They're not hard to implement and, for those who don't feel like making up characters and clues and such for their own story, this one was an easy method to an excuse to dress up in 30s garb and speak in a British accent!

My roommate has been on a Jane Austenesque miniseries kick lately, and I keep making off-color comments, and she insists "this isn't THAT kind of movie!!!"  But, as you so pointedly illustrated, guys were guys, no matter how starchy their clothes may have been.

I think this would be excellent on a wall in a pair with either another guy thinking similar thoughts, or a girl--or maybe a triptych!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dragon Warrior Slime soap dispenser and Ares fan on: November 17, 2011 07:58:03 PM
Some things in life are boring, like clear plastic soap dispensers and gray and white tower fans with no paintings of hot guys on them.  I try to remedy what I can.

It's a Slime!  From Dragon Warrior!  I Goo Gone'd the label off the cheap soap dispenser and painted this guy on it.  Acrylics and a little bit of snow craft paint for the textured dirt.. and, er, plants.

I was inspired by the brand name of the fan.  Who wouldn't be up for a hot god to cool you down?

Yes, I realize that I painted "Ares" and not "Aries".  I guess I just didn't feel like painting goatfish fanart.  SPEAR!!  The fanart is also acrylics.

This. Is. Great.  I love the spacing of the weapons, especially the slantways crowbar.  Fabulous!  The black and yellow hazard tape really pops out, and the instruction card is sweet.  Nice work!

I enjoy both of these, so much!  Pixel Moss transfers to cross stitch so well, and you did great on the lettering.  Good props for a geek desk.

This is super cute!  I'm inspired to make something like this for my roommate.  I especially love the scarf!  Aawwwww!!! : )

Fantastic colors, too!

Super cute!  I'm amazed at how crisply the pixels are defined, props!

I love the idea of this kind of wine holder.  These turned out so wonderfully, too!  Very classy. : )
