1  Re: Opinions on Obama stencil?? in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by ynneg on: March 09, 2008 07:33:30 PM
I ended up just doing the logo on the back, though I might still add Obama '08 on the front. I'm so glad I did the whole circle white first too. Thanks for the help!

2  Opinions on Obama stencil?? in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by ynneg on: March 07, 2008 09:25:01 AM
I bought a blue hoodie to stencil with something Obama inspired. I had considered doing a face like http://www.spraypaintstencils.com/a-zlistings/barack-obama-image.gif. Now though, I'm thinking I will just do the logo.
For reference, the logo looks like this:

 or this:

So, QUESTION: Because the hoodie is blue, should I paint the entire circle white first (like the first)? OR should I just paint the inside white like the second logo?

Also, the hoodie I'm using is a zip-up, so I was thinking I'd put Obama '08 on one side on the front, and the logo on the back.

Any help or advice would be seriously appreciated!!

3  Re: "Let's Do the iTunes Shuffle!" 2 Mixed CDs Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ynneg on: December 09, 2005 09:02:36 PM
I know this swap has been over for the longest time, but I'm just finally getting around to posting the beautiful CDs I received.

My CD from Starsview was awesome and had a really cool cover (the same as in iHeartSquares' post)

The tracklisting:
1 Something's Missing     John Mayer
2 We Carry On              Tim McGraw
3 Maria                         Green Day
4 April 29, 1992(Miami)   Sublime
5 Visions of a Sunset      Shawn Stockman
6 Wasting Time             Jack Johnson
7 Meltdown                  Live
8 Heaven (Radio Version) DJ Sammy & Yanou
9 Could Have Gone Mad   Poe
10 The Past and Pending The Shins
11 Little Fugue in G Minor JS Bach
12 French Taunter           Monty Python
13 Funkytown (Single Version)  Lipps, Inc.
14 I'm Like a Bird                    Nelly Furtado
15 Hey Joe                    Jimi Hendrix
16 Only Good Die Young  Me 1st & the Gimme Gimmes
17 Hanging By a Thread   Nickel Creek
18 Crazy                        Riddlin Kids
19 Phenomenal Woman   Maya Angelou
20 Accidentally in Love    Counting Crows

Of course, iHeartSquares was totally awesome too. It was incredibly creative and simply ingenious. She put the CD in a book type thing she made and called the songs "specimens" and made an entry for each. It's hard to explain, so here are the pics:

I'm hoping you can read the tracklisting in the pic, if not I can type it up.. Thanks again for my CDs Starsview and iHeartSquares. I love them both so much! This was a great first swap!

4  Re: Who is your favourite artist? in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by ynneg on: July 29, 2005 09:15:01 PM
My favorite is Rene Magritte. I don't really do much art myself, but I really like his paintings.

I saw an exhibit recently of Toulous-Lautrec, his stuff is great too.

Oh- and Jeff Koons is quite interesting, I saw his giant balloon dog a while back and ever since just thought it was the coolest thing.

LoL! My drawing and painting teacher absolutely hates him! She's met him and finds him completely obnoxious. One of our substitute teachers at my school is the the son of our photo teacher and, knowing about my teachers loathing of Jeff Koons, put a screen saver of him on her in-class computer and convinced on of my classmates to do his "Like an Artist" painting in his style!

Haha, that's really funny. I don't know too much about him himself, but I'm partial to over sized balloon animals Smiley It's sad to think that someone who makes something so cool would be obnoxious Sad

I found a pic of the balloon dog online, so here it is for your viewing pleasure:

When I saw it, it took up an entire room. It's kinda hard to grasp the enormity from the picture, but it was really awesome.

5  Johnny Depp Pirate Pillowcase in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by ynneg on: July 23, 2005 11:14:46 AM
Since my friend loves Johnny Depp I decided to make her a johnny depp themed gift for her birthday. I made her this bag and to go with it I also gave her a pillowcase. I bought the pillowcase already made and ironed on the picture. My printer completely messed up the first time, so I had a useless image on my beautiful transfer paper. Sad I switched printers and it came out decent so I ironed it on. Since it was completely black it didn't really matter how long I ironed it, which was quite nice, unlike my first try Here are the pics

And a close-up,

Also, the pillowcase is wrinkled, not the transfer in the second picture.

6  I Heart Johnny Depp Jordy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ynneg on: July 23, 2005 11:05:16 AM
My friend loves Johnny Depp, so for her birthday I decided to make her a Johnny Depp themed gift. I made this bag out of magazine clippings from People magazine's list of 50 sexiest men alive (or something like that). It's inspired by this bag. The pictures are a bit blurry because I took them in a rush- I had in fact already packaged the gift and had to take it out to take the pics. Anyways- here it is,

And some blurry close-ups

Since it's a jordy I had to pull it through the hole and it wrinkled the big picture, but in person it doesn't look quite so wrinkly. Also on the big picture of Johnny there are some stripes on the side, thus the lining fabric's stripes. Oh and I made her a Johnny Depp pirate pillowcase to go with it.

7  Twister shirt- first try at transfer paper in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by ynneg on: June 26, 2005 12:46:36 PM
After hearing so many great things about Avery dark transfers I decided to give it a try. I got my image from a twister game mat. The front got really screwed up and dark. I had assumed that after peeling the tissue it would be white and shiny, but no.

So here's the image:

The back:

The back's fine because I did it after the front and turned down the heat. In hindsight I should have done the back first..

So that's my first try at transfer paper.. I think the front got messed up because it was too hot.. Any suggestions for improving my next attempt?

8  Re: Dino spiked hoodie. Tutorial included! *Works now!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ynneg on: June 22, 2005 03:11:04 PM
This was such a great idea! As soon as I read it I was on the lookout for hoodies and right after I bought this one I added the spikes.. they're kind of weirdly shaped because I was too lazy to make a shape and I was having enough trouble since I used velvety stuff. Anways.. here's the result of my efforts:

Here you can see the material more...


the inner of the hoodie.. I got one with an outer and inner piece and had to cut into the inner piece to get to the outer.. here it is sewed back up.

Lots of pics.. lol
And I just have to add that greentea278, snoopysauras is adorably awesome! I wonder how my cats would feel about something like that..  Wink Also, thanks again to losingstreak, great idea and the tute is wonderful, thanks!

9  Paint Chip Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ynneg on: June 18, 2005 10:48:35 PM
After seeing the ad for Nara's original paint chip wallet in Readymade, I searched on craftster, and low and behold, I found Jesser's paint chip wallet with awesome tutorial, I decided to try my hand at it.

Luckily we had an entire book of paint chips from when we painted our house:

So I ripped out a few pages, sliced them and sewed them together... BUT I made it too small and since the inside wasn't lined I couldn't put money in easily. Oh- and I forgot to make a pocket for cards. So that was sad...

After that I tried it again, this time I made two rectangles, not just one big folded rectangle. I lined the inside of each with masking tape and I remembered the card pockets. Much better AND functional!

I added ribbon on the side too, so I can tie it shut.

Please excuse the hugeness of my pics and my fingers in them Smiley

ETA: a pic of it closed

10  Cat Contraption! (pic heavy) in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by ynneg on: June 11, 2005 11:47:58 PM
Well, I always wanted to buy one of those cool cat scratching trees for my cats, but they were too expensive. My dad said he could make one himself.. so that's what we did! Initially I had planned to help out a lot, but it ended up being me designing it and getting the materials with my mom and him making it (though I did sit with him when he did Smiley). It was very inexpensive and totally worth it!

The materials were lumber, carpet, a cardboard tube (usually used for cement pouring), stapler gun, nails, sisal rope, and lots of hot glue. We've had it for quite a long time now and we've replaced some of the carpet on one of the bottom legs because the cats scratched it so much, but otherwise no problems. If I did it again though, I wouldn't put on any sisal rope because my cats don't scratch it, it's rather expensive, and it's hard to keep tightly rolled on. The cats, Rudy and Riley, love it and are always playing/sleeping on it. Anyways, here are the pics:


By the looks of this pic we should probably replace it again



full shot

Rudy on it

Rudy on it again

Riley on it

You can see how much they love it! Cheesy Enjoy!
