11  Crayon art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bld on: November 26, 2011 10:53:32 PM
here is the crayon art I did with my afterschool kiddo.  We tried crayons through a hot gun machine (had to later shave them down and also got hot wax squirted on us) and used a blow dryer.

He really loved the science of it and we got to talk about how it was melting a solid to a liquid.  Really worked calling it science art.

Thanks for the tutorial
It showed me how to make this for my coworker, though it was too dark here to do the window so I had to hand draw it while staring down the computer screen.  I can't wait till it is sunny enough to actually get the correct silhouette.

13  Everything is backwards in the US/better pictures in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bld on: November 10, 2011 02:28:42 PM
Or I just forgot to invert my pattern for the tardis.  

Here is more of my mom's Christmas gift

The Dr.Who is a copy of irishdaydreamers amazing doll - you can see the much better sewn version at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386025.0

The tardis pillow case is my first attempt at sewing quilting style - I measured each panel about 5 times and then forgot to invert it (hence my US backwards-ness, I immediately thought I should just use the invert button - but that doesn't work in relife).  I hand did the signs and accidently got some on my hands and thus on the pillow in some parts (oops).

I'm going to add this to my other very badly done david tennant doll.

 And then I will secretly be mad at my mom, because there is no way she will be excited enough to make up for all the time these took - though I do love them- I just also love sleep and that didn't happen enough while sewing.

14  Paintings with acrylic and a bubble art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bld on: October 25, 2011 10:22:05 PM
Here are some older paintings I made

These 2 are made from a solid painted canvas then splatter painted and finally a hand made stencil is spray painted on top - both had smears but I thought it gave it character
And yes they are flight of the conchord

Then there is:

my first attempt at any kind of shading - so painted shading, painted textured foliage and a handmade stencil spray painted on - the lines didn't come out for the tire swing and I goofed it up but it still looks cool

here they are all together on my wall with horrible lighting

and finally my bubble art - I added egg dye to bubbles and then blew on the different colors - I made a lot but this was my favorite  

Sorry for my not so good camera and the horrible lighting

15  First plushie attempt without a printed out pattern in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bld on: October 23, 2011 11:08:22 PM

So after seeing SpookyPooky's (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=390052.0)  amazing David Tennant doll I decided to try to make one of my mom.  It is no where near as awesome, but it works.

http://www.members.shaw.ca/plushie/ufoplush/  was a great website for advice on how to make a plushie.  I think for my next one I will have to find a printer that works so I can actually get the pattern instead of staring at the computer and hoping I am doing it okay.  Also might try to make the next doctor standing up, with a proportional head. 

Any advice on how to make it look more like Dr.who?  I was thinking of making a Dalek plushie to go with it.  And of course I am hoping to put this all in a Tardis Pillow case to have a complete Dr.Who set for my mom (if I get my sewing machine to like me again)

16  Re: Da de los Muertos Monster Plushie Tutorial *Pic Chubby* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bld on: October 23, 2011 10:58:33 PM

Thanks for the idea and tutorial information!  I made mine more skeleton than Dia de los Muertos, but thats just because I got sick of sewing the details.   
(I burned my felt... if you do stitch witch on steam - use a wet piece of felt inbetween the iron and the piece your ironing, it is not a pleasant smell otherwise.)
