121  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / multi-layer w/screenprint ink bleeding? on: July 11, 2005 07:02:44 AM
okay so i made this:

and if you notice, the black lines that are over the white are messy. the problem was that the white was dry and a little texture-y so when i ironed on the freezer paper for the black, it wasn't down all the way and the black bled. is there any way to stop this? any methods of applying the paint that don't texturize it? (i use a "spouncer" - round sponge brush)
anyone else even have this problem?

showbread, for my husband:

death to smoochy, for me:

switchfoot, because their shirts cost too much:

my first multi-layer stencil which i'm VERY proud of:

that's my kitten's tail in the last picture, because he was playing with the camera strap.
123  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / owl anti-stencil on: June 28, 2005 07:35:21 AM
yay for messy-haired late-night photo shoots!

i love how this turned out. it was my husband's idea, and when i found this owl, i had to try it.

close-up of the owl:

in the actual picture, the lines are all wavy like that, and i liked it so i cut it that way, but now it looks like the stencil bled, even though this is the best result i've ever had with stencils.

ps- excuse the white by the branch on the right. the freezer paper stuck and i didn't notice. it's gone now.
124  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / happy birthday from my kitten! on: June 24, 2005 07:49:59 PM

he wasn't real happy about it, i guess we have to get him tired first.
125  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / fun fur kitten bed! on: June 10, 2005 10:00:26 AM
I found the coolest fake fur at wal-mart of all places, and I knew I had to make Rob a bed. The fur is short-ish blue with dots of green that are longer. If you smooth it out it almost looks like stripes. I couldn't figure out how to put the bed together at first, so I had a pile of fake fur on the living room floor for a while and Rob loved it immediately. He would be playing with us and then disappear and we'd find him sleeping in the pile of fur.
Here's the finished bed - I couldn't get Rob to leave it alone, so he's modeling again.

and a top view -

my husband was trying to sleep before work (he works third shift) so I had to keep Rob, our 6-week-old kitten awake so he'd sleep all night and quiet so Paul could sleep. I got out my fabric scraps bag, and this is what happened:

He just sat there and purred while i tied it for him. I can tell he's going to be a good model.
127  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / vintage b/w material halter on: May 25, 2005 09:59:08 AM
i'm not happy with it, but it looks pretty til i put it on. i need to take in the sides before the back will lace properly when it's on. right now the sides just pull together and it's ugly. and since the back won't lace tight, it doesn't support my boobs and they fall under the seam. i meant to have the lacing farther apart, but the way i sewed it took a lot of the material between the lacing away.



in the last picture i'm holding the back tighter because it's too loose.

i am frustrated with it and ready to throw it away, but the material is from my great-grandma, and i want to make it work because it's special. i know i need thicker straps, the thin stuff was all i had at the time.

i was worried about it fraying, so there are no exposed edges anywhere. i don't have a serger, which would have made this 10x easier, but oh well  Undecided
128  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Happy birthday husband! on: May 23, 2005 01:55:49 PM
I bought my husband a video game for his birthday because that's what he wanted. But I always make something personal, so I made him this:

it looks awful in the picture, I don't know why. In real life it's great. There is no fading around the design, it was a flash reaction, I think.

there's a close up of the gryphon. He likes those. It looks like a little red is showing through on the flank, but I looked real close on the shirt itself and it looks fine. *shrug* stupid camera.
129  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I love my owl belt! on: May 16, 2005 07:28:47 AM
It's hard as heck to take pictures of yourself wearing a belt.

I bought the pink webbing and owl acetate ribbon and the metal ends from les bon ribbon and the buckle from an army surplus website. It took me 10 minutes to make and looks more professional than some I bought from expensive stores.

Lately I've been loving the owls. I bought a tank top that said "Up owl night, sleep owl day."

sorry about all my tank tops... i'm still afraid to try sleeves!
