1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / The Prisoner/Patrick McGoohan Painting on: January 03, 2009 10:56:29 PM
I wasn't sure exactly where to put this painting, but figured this was the best place for it. Recently, I watched the box set of the 60's series The Prisoner and really enjoyed it.  Strange and definitely thought-provoking.  I love Patrick McGoohan and with the show being so quote-able, I felt crafty enough to paint something up. 

I started by converting a photo of McGoohan in Photoshop with threshold and then printed it out.  I used tracing paper to go over the outline of the photo in pencil and then rubbed the tracing onto the canvas.  I did the same process with the star and text and painted everything in with acrylics. 

Hope you enjoy and any suggestions are welcome! Smiley
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Revamped Paper Lanterns on: December 23, 2008 08:07:30 PM
I bought some ten cent paper lanterns over the summer and jazzed them up with a little Mod Podge and tissue paper. 

Insert the wire into the lantern to open the lantern up.  You can get creative with the tissue paper: You can use decorative or plain tissue paper and cut either strips, abstract pieces, or objects or silhouettes out.  Go wild! Then, lay the tissue paper over the lantern and brush two coats of the Mod Podge over each layer.  Once it's all dry, you are still able to fold the lantern back up.

For the purple lanterns, I just cut out swirls and curls free-hand and I liked them best:

For the bird silhouette, I traced a chickadee from a bird coloring book and used nail clipping scissors to cut it out.  It was tedious, but not too hard:

Hope you all enjoy!

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Zero the Dog, Life Aquatic Beanie, VW Van on: December 16, 2008 09:55:59 PM
I just learned how to dry felt and was surprised by how easy it is to learn! For my good friend's Christmas present, I decided to make a few notable characters from some of his favorite movies.  They all need a little trim, but here they are Smiley :

Zero - The Nightmare Before Christmas

Steve Zissou Beanie - The Life Aquatic

VW Van - Little Miss Sunshine

All together! 

Any suggestions welcome Smiley
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Keith Urban Shirt (PICS WORK NOW) on: September 08, 2005 02:41:11 PM
It took me forever to learn how to screenprint, but it was worth the wait.  I made this shirt with my own design of Keith Urban (very talented and handsome country singer).


Sleeve, the pheonix is one of his tattoo's.  Just thought it was cool:

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / holes/specks when printing on: April 10, 2005 09:09:00 PM
I've got a question.  When I print my screen image with ink, there are teeny specks the ink gets through when the image is on my t-shirt, bag, etc.  How do I get rid of these? I sometimes rub the screen (to get the emulsion off) with a bathroom brush, perhaps it's too rough? Any suggestions?
