21  Big Ol' Eve Stencil- Art Project in Stenciling: Completed Projects by lisatrix on: November 05, 2005 06:15:21 AM
This is the first stencil I've made without using a computer. We had to do a project involving words for art, and this is what I did:

It says "The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance".

I'm not sure I like the cloudyness. I might do another one with solid black.

23  White Tara: Third Eye Makeup in Completed Projects by lisatrix on: October 26, 2005 04:30:28 PM
White Tara is the Indian goddess of compassion. With her seven eyes, she sees all human suffering. When I learned this, I thought "Sweet! I am so doing that!"

This is my long-suffering friend Mitali, to whom I now owe a huge favor.

24  Beer and CDs: The Two Sources of Wisdom in CHALLENGE 6 ENTRIES by lisatrix on: October 06, 2005 06:02:49 PM
This was my first IB Art project, and in a lucky coincidence it fits this challenge!

Without flash:

With flash:

Those are old CDs from my mom's office, and beer bottle caps saved up by my parents. I glued them onto a board canvas with hot glue, then painted the line with acrylic paint. It was planned around the materials- I had hundreds of bottlecaps and at least 50 CDs just sitting around, and they called to me.

So it's a mixed-media collage of sewing supplies.

Watercolor spool, spraypaint scissors.

Acrylic needle, watercolor buttons, colored pencil bobbin.

Pencil thimble, actual buttons.

Acrylic pincusion, fabric with starch.

Spraypaint measuring tape (TWO HOURS this took to cut!)

The hard part.

26  3-Layer Scissors Stencil- My First! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by lisatrix on: September 27, 2005 08:12:32 PM
I've only ever done single-layer acrylics and one two-layer pumpkin before, so this was new. (It's spraypaint.)  It was part of a collage, which I'll post later.

Closeup of the hard part:

It bled, but I like it.

28  Punk Barbie! My very first altered Barbie from bygone days. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lisatrix on: August 19, 2005 01:35:03 PM
This is way old, but I still love it. I made the Barbie in 8th grade and the box a year later, which accounts for the sketchy quality of the tattoos. Behold!

The box is a renovated shoebox.

Note the multiple piercings and tattoos, as well as the horrible, horrible eyeliner that I can't fix. I hand-sewed the shirt. Clearly. Wink

That's authentic duct tape and safety pins there. Also, if you look closely, you can see a tiny cigarette in the hole in her hand where rings are supposed to go. She  had black nail polish, but it rubbed off. The skirt's made from an old flannel shirt (omgsopunk), and the garters are just masking tape colored with Sharpie.

29  Defective bead necklace (+three) in Beads: Completed Projects by lisatrix on: July 11, 2005 07:33:06 PM
I bought a 12 oz package of glass beads for four dollars... so, as you can imagine, they weren't the best quality. (Brand name: Mass o' Glass. Awesome!) Several were stuck together in pairs. I was going to break them apart, but then I decided I liked the way they looked together, so I made this with them:

And I made these with some of the non-defective beads...

30  An exciting new use for fake flowers... (Updated!) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by lisatrix on: June 28, 2005 12:07:17 PM
...If you're going to a rave, that is.*


*I wasn't actually going to a rave. Drugs is bad, yo.

UPDATE! I got bored and messed with this idea some more:

Now THIS hurt coming off.
