1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / HIM Heartagram Necklace, Polymer Clay on: April 04, 2008 10:30:50 PM
I made this to wear to the HIM concert March 29.  I had planned to make a dress, but kept forgetting to buy a shirt to recon Sad  (Can't get them in my town, so would have had to order one off the net *le sigh*)

Close Ups: Heartagram, Ville, Reverse
These are thumbnails, click if you wanna see a bigger pic Smiley

I didn't have access to the resin I would usually put on my necklaces, so I improvised and used HEAPS of clear nail polish lol, worked out really well lol.  Also I would usually drill holes to attach chains and jump rings, but i didn't have access to that either  Roll Eyes  So I super glued butterflies (earring backs) to the back of the pendant and attached jump rings that way Wink

Action Shot, weird camera phone pic lol

The little charm things are made by gluing a picture to the back of a glass marble (just like marble magnets) and then covering that with polymer clay Smiley

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My second try at stencilling :) Swap Spoiler Raenef on: February 15, 2008 07:20:47 PM
Swap Spoiler for Raenef Don't look any further!  Tongue
Everyone else, keep scrolling Wink

This is my second stencilling attempt Cheesy  This is for the Neil Gaiman swap, one of my partners favourite characters was Dream Smiley  The original picture was from DeviantArt Smiley
My first go was stenciling the words "Nothing Nothing Tra La La" to go on a shirt for another swap Wink  Anyways I really love how this turned out Cheesy

You can see a little line on the right hand side where i accidentally drop the lid from the paint on the shirt... ooops lol Cheesy

And i tried to make a cupcake, but it looks like a fairy house (i only had a couple of colours lol) and a lil skull.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Marilyn Manson T-Skirt on: September 09, 2007 01:46:28 AM
This is a skirt I made for someone else Smiley  I didn't iron it before i took pics so forgive the wrinkleys haha.

Before (pic from auction site):


I chopped the bottom off the skirt and attached it to the top so the print would sit lower.  Then added some faux suedeish fabric in the sides, to give more width and add some flare.  Then added some cool stretch spider fabric around the bottom Wink

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I know You're All Sick To Death Of Sock Monkeys, But.... on: March 20, 2007 06:36:15 PM
I finally got off my lazy butt and made one, although, he sort of took on a life of his own and now he's not a monkey . . .

I guess he's sort of a scary Rabbit now...
His arms became his ears, and his tail became his one lonely arm hehe... and i guess one of his eyes got poked out Sad Poor little Rabby
