1  Charted Adventure treasure map behavoir chart. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by WhimsicallyObsessed on: March 14, 2014 06:21:06 AM
I came up with this idea in the shower one day last week and set out on the adventure of creation. I should have used a bit more measuring as its a bit crooked in areas. Plus I should have put in more planning but I'm the type to wing it and freestyle craft. Overall still happy with the outcome. We had a big freezer box laying around which was cut into 2" strips and 2 big panels were cut one measured 24" square that got covered in fabric the other was the base for the frame and panel to go on and that one was 28" square. With lots and lots of hot glue I layered the strips and squares up and glued on mock wood which I painted with ink and watercolors on watercolor paper. The treasure maps, ship, bottle, treasure chest and daily diamonds were all done with heavy 140lb watercolor paper ink & watercolors. So this is how I designed it to work:  My daughter gets a diamond for every day she fills up her chart with 16 gems (every set goal complete gets a gem over the maps I will probably make a chart for a reminder but they will change as she gets older). If she gets 7 diamonds she gets her treasure chest (allowance) and catches a mermaid. If she catches 4 mermaids she gets a message in a bottle which is a random surprise reward the bottle is flipped to the side where it is empty until she gets the mermaids and the message shows up. Smiley I had lots of fun making this and I hope you guys enjoy as well. Most of all I hope it works well she's really excited about it so far.

Please ignore the unfinished frankenwall. Its hideous I know but I gotta keep sweet talking the hubby into helping me finish it up.. LOL

Sorry it took me so long to post some pictures! LOVING the gallery guys!

First I received from deadsweaters she made me this awesome airship bird <3 I'm totally going to have to find a place to just hang him year round! He is so cute! Thank you so much!

Then I received from SaraBlais this lovely slate ornament! She did a great job getting the shape of an ornament out of slate I always screw up when trying to shape slate and it breaks on me! She even threw in some cute hair pins that are just my style! Cheesy Love it thank you!

Then I received from Alchamy513 yesterday. Look at the tiny perfect stitches and shininess! Love it!! Thank you so much Cheesy

4  Simple batty ornaments! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by WhimsicallyObsessed on: October 05, 2013 04:38:41 PM
I made my first tutorial basically to show how to make bats I came up with an idea I havent seen before with making the wings but I'm pretty pleased with how they came out. I made another type as well but I think I like these better and they hold up pretty well.
Here are the finished ones
here is the body all glued together before painting (I want to do a way better face paint but I wanted to make this simple and quick for the tutorial)

here are a few hanging under the hoops I have received in craft swaps! ^.~
(sorry for the bad picture on this one!

I managed these really quick because of the simple design and fast paint! I wanted people to be able to make them simple! I'm thinking of hanging some in my tree but they need to be spray painted and sealed instead of what I did on these. The longest part was actually painting all the pieces which sucked because i had to use watered down acrylic paint. I was running low and I didnt plan ahead well enough. I highly recommend that if you are making a bunch to buy some spray paint and paint them a base coat of solid black after gluing together! Bottom line is that I really needed something to focus on to help me de-gloomify my mood and it helped. I will probably do another tutorial this upcoming week as well. Full tutorial on my blog (here) if interested! I just dont want to go through loading them all one at a time because my little junky netbook I'm on right now is is a grump when i upload/download/watch things over the internet.  Hope you enjoy them!!! Cheesy

I'm going to be late since I'm sending tomorrow. I feel bad for being late but I've been having serious crafting issues... >.<
Anyway check out this sweet mini wallet I got! Cheesy
