Thanks!  I'm really liking the watercolor pencils!

Here's a set of four flower cards I did today.  They hold a little hidden meaning for me since Rose, Daisy, Violet and Hyacinth are characters from my favorite BBC show Keeping Up Appearances!

I decided to practice with my new watercolor pencils and these were the result:

I couldn't think of any clever names so they're "Little Waterlilies", "Medium Waterlilies", and "Large Waterlilies" respectively.

All Waterlily cards have been traded

I'm pretty pleased with how they came out despite not being able to draw very well.

"Angel Baby"

"The Dragonfly".  The text reads "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world" ~ Sadako Sasaki

"Lucky Crane"

Here are all three together:

That's my first challenge entry!  Good luck to everybody!

24  halfjackd's ATC gallery in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by halfjackd on: February 27, 2007 08:46:14 PM
I've been trying to wait to start a gallery until I didn't have any cards in progress and finally got the chance!

A few that have made their way to other threads:

"Durga", "Preservation", and "Crochet".  ("Crochet" has been traded!)

Four that I made for a Shaun of the Dead swap last year:

"Cornetto", "Guiness", "Peanut", and "Tea". 

A set of three I like to call the "Bodice Ripper" series:

"Devon", "Lucas", and "Christopher".

And a random one:


I've got one card done for the March theme challenge, but I'll wait to post it until later.  I also picked up some watercolor pencils and other nifty things tonight so I'm hoping for some inspiration to hit!

25  Re: "My First" ATC gallery for all the fabulous newbie ATC Artists in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by halfjackd on: February 22, 2007 09:24:20 AM
Hi everyone! *waves*

I've been looking at everyones ATC's, they're so great!  I did a few last year, but I'm still very much a newbie with only about 7 under my belt.  Here's the three I have since the other 4 went to a swap.

I have to admit that the crochet one is my favorite; I'm hoping to do a whole set of craft themed cards.  My biggest problem I see is I'm failing to get the cards to pop and once I get the main idea for a card in my head I can't bring it together with the other design elements.

Comments and constructive criticism more than welcome!

I just used the playbill and took the border off and made it smaller in paint shop pro.

Here you go...clickable thumbnail.

27  My first try at stenciling in Stenciling: Completed Projects by halfjackd on: April 15, 2006 08:46:47 PM
I'm going to a Dresden Dolls concert on Monday, and I couldn't figure out what to wear...these are the products of shopping and not finding what I wanted.

I love these wings that I found on stencilry, and they were my very first shot at stenciling.  You can't tell from the picture, but they're done in silver.

I tweaked the image from their new album Yes, Virginia to make this top...definitely my favorite of the two.

I'm pleased with my first foray in to stenciling and really looking forward to trying more detailed pieces soon!

Yep, I did get pictures.

The pouch.  Unfortunately, I scanned it and so I didn't get the zombie hand zipper pull.  I just used Sculpey clay, baked it then painted it all zombie-like.

The atc's.  I've been looking at different paper art for awhile and wanting to try it.  This swap gave me the opportunity.  The actual food items are clay as well.

I didn't get an actual picture or scan of the window cling because I didn't think that it would turn out, but here's the image I used for it.

So glad you liked everything!

29  My ginormous lace panel sweater of doom! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by halfjackd on: March 29, 2006 11:28:36 AM
I wasn't sure if I wanted to put this on the knit board or clothing since it's both, but I decided to go ahead and pop it on here.

I got this pattern from a leaflet from Leisure Arts called Full Figured Fashions.  It's a simple raglan sweater, but I think the lace panels really make it more interesting.

I have a 52 inch bust, and the largest size the sweater was geared for was a 50 inch bust with 2 inches give.  I upped my needle sizes from 6 and 8 to 7 and 9.  It made the sweater quite a bit bigger, but I like loose clothing.

Sleeve detail.

Because this required quite a bit of yarn yardage and it was my first sweater for myself, I took the cheap route and used Caron Simply Soft.  I love the stuff honestly, but for some reason I wound up with a lot of strand splitting and pills as I worked with it.  I'm really hoping that it doesn't get worse when I wash it.

I recieved from tucanchild today! 

She sent me these FABULOUS coasters with cross stitched quotes from the movie.

Sorry the picture quality is so crap, but they say, from top left:

"Who died and made you king of the fuckin' zombies?!"

"It's not hip-hop, it's electro...prick"  (My favorite!!!)

"The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation."

"Cafe au lait pour vous"

I'm absolutely in love with these and my husband got to see me screech every time I unwrapped one.

Thanks for being such a great partner and organiser!
