11  First Attempt at Painting! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by thepeachmartini on: October 25, 2013 10:48:10 AM
A couple friends and I signed up for a Wine and Canvas painting session - it was so much fun! The painting we selected was a little more challenging for someone who has never picked up a paint brush, but I managed! I am pretty darn happy with how it turned out, except for that tree in the front...it's really bothering me, but I'm afraid if I try to fix it, I'll just end up ruining the painting!

Here are a couple in-progress pics...I think I'm hooked now...

And here is the finished painting! Smiley Thanks for looking!!

I can finally post pics of the spooky little house I received from irid3sc3nt! She ran with my E. A. Poe theme!  Grin

Here's a better angle of that creepy bird!

...and a rather snarky looking skele!

But! Wait! When daylight comes, that creepy bird is GONE!

Thank you so much to irid3sc3nt and coconutbells for making this a fun swap!! Looking forward to making more chunky houses in the future! Smiley

14  Chunky House Addiction in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by thepeachmartini on: October 10, 2013 07:12:21 AM
I participated in the Halloween/October Holidays edition of the Chunky House Swap this time around - so much fun!! I think I'm addicted to making them now, so here are the one's I've made so far.

This was made for my friend after she saw the houses I made for the swap - her birthday is coming up, and we're both big fans of E. A. Poe, so I wanted to incorporate that in her house. I called this one "The Oval Portrait" based on one of his short stories.

The back...

This is the house I made for coconutbells in the swap...this was made based off of a Victorian-era ghost story I read online, namely this passage:
She started and stopped short, for at that moment, a long-drawn shriek, as of someone in peril, the very shriek she had heard before, rung through the castle. Again and again it rose; died down; and rose again.

Edith staggered against the wall; she trembled so she could not stand. But her husband, who should have been there to support her, was gone. At the first sound of the awful cry, he had rushed from the room; and as Edith pressed her hand to her heart, she heard his fast receding steps echoing in the distance.

She was left alone, to meet the coming horror, whatever it might be

That's good old Edith peeking out the window...and I incorporated a great picture of Alexander the Seer - only he knows why Edith is terrified!! MUAAHAHAHAHAAA!!

And here is the house I made for irid3sc3nt - she stated she liked toads, skeletons, crows/ravens, and vintage Halloween...

I loved the picture of the toad I found - he definitely needed a great hat for Halloween. The Skeleton sticker was one I'd been hoarding for a while and decided this was the perfect project Smiley The tree is made from 12g or 14g wire, wrapped in brown floral tape - it makes the perfect bark! The little black crow button is from a vintage lot I bought a while back.

Thanks for looking Smiley

I received my wonderful package from Sylwa yesterday!!

When I opened the box, this is what greeted me Smiley

Here's the fab coffee!

Beautiful soap that smells delicious!

This great little sign that she wood burned - love it!

Super cheery mug rug and mug 'hug'  Grin

...and just when I thought the soap smelled great, I opened up this container of coffee sugar scrub. ZOMG!!!!
It smells like some kind of wonderful dessert!!! And it makes my skin feel so good!! I think it's funny that we both made a sugar scrub  Wink

Thanks for swapping with me, Sylwa! It was a lot of fun!!  Cheesy
