1  Re: Treasure Keeper Pouch in Crochet: Completed Projects by Patraw on: January 15, 2019 10:34:10 AM
That treasure had better be pretty good, because it's going to have an awful hard time outdoing the pouch that it's being kept in!

I used some artwork from this vintage children's book as a still-life model when I did that one.

3  SwapDoodle Scribbles in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Patraw on: January 14, 2019 08:38:04 AM
Here are a bunch of my scribbles from Nintendo's "free" SwapDoodle Nintendo 2DS/3DS app that I've exchanged with a few friends over the past month-or-so.  I say "free" because, unless you pay real money for add-on packs, which I'm too cheap to do, you only get black and red ink, and a pretty limited amount of ink at that (instead of being greedy, Nintendo should have made the whole shebang a pre-installed program to begin with).   You may remember that, back in the day, Nintendo's instruction manuals for the original Gameboy were usually only printed in black and red ink in the USA, so, I have to wonder if the basic package's ink choices are some kind of twisted homage to that.   Anyway, working within those limitations, and on a teensy touch screen with a plastic stylus, does make for an interesting artistic challenge.  There's no way, that I'm aware of, to get rid of my Mii in the bottom left corner, so, while his hand often intrudes onto the artwork, I wanted to keep the dates, so, I didn't crop him/me out.

Anyway, that's pretty much all I've done, creatively, for the last month or two.

I never though about it, but, I looked it up, and, yeah, you're correct, CLM, glitter isn't very good for our environment, especially when it gets into the water supply and food chain.

5  Re: Strange Crayola Markers(?) Help in Discussion and Questions by Patraw on: December 12, 2018 10:05:27 AM
This is a public service announcement from the desk of Rainbow Dash, self-appointed defender of the color spectrum:

I did this quick portrait (and, wow, are her eyes crooked), way back in May of 2015, using Crayola's Wonder Color markers and paper.  Over the years, the colors have both faded and diffused through the paper (the yellowish staining), transforming her into a ghostly shadow of her former self.  I didn't leave the illustration in direct sunlight or anything like that, it's only been in the shadows, with other papers, for all that time.  I'd been meaning to scan this for months, and since I had to do a bunch of bills/invoices this morning anyway, and my scattered brain finally remembered, I got it done.  Other than finding the changes interesting, the reason I'm posting this now is that I know many of you are the mothers of small children, so, if you want to save their masterpieces for posterity, Wonder Color obviously isn't the stuff to do it with (although it's fine for just messing around with).   It's possible that some kind of sealer might have prevented this from happening, but, as it's a unique chemical reaction to begin with (the leuco dyes in the markers only work on the coordinating special paper; they leave transparent fluid on anything else), I don't know if that'd make a difference or not.

6  SwapDoodlers in Discussion and Questions by Patraw on: December 04, 2018 12:47:27 PM
Do any of y'all SwapDoodle?  It's a free app in Nintendo's eShop (you gotta pay real money if you want to use more than black and red ink though, which is kind of lame) that lets you send handwritten messages and drawings to your friends.  The Nintendo 2DS/3DS' touch screen is pretty small (maybe half the size of an ATC), and the stylus only a so-so drawing implement, but, it's kind of fun.  I've been sending scribbles and messages to a woman in California for the last week or so after first learning about it from her in one of the two 3DS groups that I belong to on Facebook.

My understanding is that Nintendo used to have a SwapNote app too . . . but . . . um . . . adults in Japan were sending children naughty stuff (you could attach photos in that program, which you can't do in SwapDoodle), so they axed that one and replaced it with SwapDoodle.

So, if any of you have a 2DS/3DS, have downloaded the program, and wanna SwapDoodle with me, my friend code is:

0018 6684 9731

(You have to give me your friend code too for it to work, which you can do via PM if you don't want to post it publicly here).

Wow, that's some dedication, making your own costume, and a reversible one at that!  You look lovely and I'm sure you lit up the stage!

I'm not involved in theatre at all, but I live in a small town, and I know that our local performance group struggles to put on productions too.

I rotated and cropped your two sideways photos:

Rotated & cropped:

I've never seen feathers done in macram before, and that technique really does suit those objects very nicely.  The red one really adds a nice splash of color to the whole arrangement too.

Wowzers, those are some great costumes!  Love all of Gadget's gadgets (which also reminds me of Data's gear from The Goonies too).

I know what Fortnite is, but I've never played it, so when I saw the glowing eyes, I thought that was going to turn out to be a Star Wars Jawa when I saw the thumbnail image on the main page!
