21  skeletons and skulls, sneakers, more humpicorns, and some bamboo *images!!!* in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: February 01, 2006 04:00:16 PM
Okay, sugarslug, one of these shirts is a present for you, so KEEP OUT unless you can't wait two days until I get there.   Cheesy

I've been going a little overboard with stencilling lately, this is just a few of the ones I've made lately (i'll post more later, when my uploading finger uncramps).  Nothing over-the-top unique, but i'm happy with them.   First is my version of the chucks stencil (stencilry? i'm pretty sure that's where it came from.) It's done with acrylic paint on a plain tee, and i like how it looks kind of oldish:

Hmm...yes, then we have this nice rendition of some ribs - also from stencilry, i believe - executed in an unusual shade of green on another unusual shade of green (oo, ahh):

It isn't uneven like that in real life, it was still wet (no, really!)

Also, this is one of my new favorite shirts...the paint is quite a lot subtler in person, but it's spraypaint so it's kind of shiny and picks up the flash:

I did this nice little line, zippered pouch for a friend for christmas, using gold acrylic dollar-store paint:

Aaaaaand, finally, my second shirt with the humpicorns on it.   Cheesy Oh man, this image makes me laugh.  Totally stolen from threadless.com - may i rot in hell.  Oh well, anyway, this one worked better than my original because i used silver spraypaint this time and it went on nice and thin...when i did this stencil with white paint on an orange shirt, it looked good but the painted part is kind of thick and doesn't stretch. This one's for sugarslug:

That's all for now...stencil on, crafting soldiers!! (man, i think i've had too much caffeine today, sorry.)

22  anime ,audrey ,bettie ,jon waters, and a kilt. *images!!* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tiph_thompson on: February 01, 2006 03:43:56 PM
Yar mateys !  So, first off, sugarslug don't look at these yet because one of them is coming with me to see you as a gift.  No peaking!   Wink  Everybody else, c'mon in.  I made these first three bags as christmas presents for my friend:
a jon waters drawstring pouch

a bettie page zipper pouch with tattoo print lining:

and this audrey hepburn handbag, with wooden handles, front pocket, and nice herringbone lining:

(she was a zombie audrey for hallowe'en)

Hmm.. what else, lemme see here.  Oh yeah, so I had this kilt. Yep, ya gotta love a kilt...except of course when it's too freakin small to wear and then you cut the kilt up in anger and delight and then tenderly sew it back together (to show it that you were never *really* angry) until it looks like this bag:

with the kilt's original buckles as handle attachers, and a nice skull fabric liner (because i'm just so TOUGH you know? Wink):

and then, finally, the bag which is to belong to sugarslug when i see her shortly, a cute little number made from anime-girl fabric (mmreow) with a little zipper pocket and bamboo handles (thank you jordy bag tute):

sorry that last one's upside downish - it's on my lap.   So, er... there they are (dances a little bit and exits.)

Thank you Thank you Annette for posting the picture of the one you sent me...I've been waiting on Tinted's card to post pictures ...i love your card - it's sticky-tacked to the front of my cupboard  Smiley.  I haven't received the one from Tinted yet, but here's the one i got from Knittynikki:

I also was the proud recipient of the one Nutella made with the butterflies and hollywood guy (previously posted, very cool), and of course the kitty one from goatgoddess which was a really nice suprise  Wink

flyleaf_lvr's picture links are wonko so i'm reposting them  Smiley She loves math and pi and computer stuff, and her favorite colors are bright blue and lime green...so here:
the front of her soft and tiny zipper-pouch math kit, with embroidery and easy beadwork

the back, with quilted squares and stencilled numbers of pi

and half of the inside, with a tiny abacus and some instruments (ruler, set squares, etc) that i made out of aluminum scraps

the other side inside has a little graph paper pad and pencil in a pocket with a computer badge.   It was fun to make - before we got assigned partners i had this list of things i might make but this wasn't on the list ...just a response to flyleaf_lvr and her interests  Cheesy

I'm seriously impressed with everybody's crafts so far, I've gone searching for other things some of you guys have made because your skills are really impressive.

okay so i'm visiting a friend which means A) i should go be social, not geek out here, and B) the programs on this computer are unfamiliar to me, but C) i couldn't help myself  Wink  So, a variety you won't get from this guy, but i made you one, at least.  Hope it's at all usable.

If you're willing to do a LOT of cutting, fiddling, this image is the best i could do.  Somebody else can likely be more helpful but i thought i'd try for you, so i got at least one of them to something resembling a stencil:

Good luck.  Smiley

27  Re: Hedwig and the Humpicorns in Stenciling: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: November 28, 2005 05:26:08 PM
thanks for the props, kids.
I actually just drew the hedwig stencil on carboard with a pencil, using the cover of my movie box as a model.  But since the gosh darned PUPPY EYES got pulled out, i did a quick google image search, and found this

which, in fact, looks essentially identical to the one i did.  Do not let this lead you to believe that i lied about the cardboard. i didn't.  There ya go, Lindsaybird, put those puppy eyes away before you hurt somebody. Kiss

28  okay, here's a little more in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: November 28, 2005 05:00:00 PM
so, I rent, and don't stay anywhere terribly long so I generally keep things fairly quick and easy (see my simple star, if you don't believe me).  Here's a couple of other things  I snapped pictures of in my house. #1, my front room, which is filled with e. gorey drawings that i white-glued to the wall (there's loads more, but here's just a few)
Over the door frame:

Over the window frame:

and above an outlet:

And in the livingroom, one wall was really rough and had tons of picture holes and stuff, so I papered over it in strips of brown kraft paper, again with a white glue and water mixture. You can also see the pieces of trim i screwed to the wall on the right to display records

It can all be taken down if the next renters don't like it, and was pretty simple to do.  There ya be.

29  one simple little star in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by tiph_thompson on: November 28, 2005 04:38:59 PM
okay so relative to most of the stuff in this thread, this is so little and all, but it makes me happy so i'm sharing it...it's one of two stars stencilled up in the corners of my kitchen, and humm, what more can i say?

the plant is on top of my fridge. that's all, bada-boom. Wink

30  hyper for herringbone in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tiph_thompson on: November 28, 2005 04:31:07 PM
so, mm-hmm...i had some herringbone tweed pants with a sizing issue and a torn leg.  Snippety-snip, zip-zap and all that, and ...Voila!  My own version of a straightforwardly cute little wallet, and a record purse (as made by eight million other people here, but i don't care, i like it  Wink)

the wallet, closed:

and opened, with money pouch and little card pockets:

the record bag, with corduroy and electrical tape skull&bones:

and a close-up (oo, aahhh  Cheesy) of the zipper closure:

i love tweed, and now i hope you do too.
