23  completed "fall" layout, cute baby alert! in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by thecraftyminx on: November 04, 2005 02:16:05 PM
Ok, Ive actually gotten around to doing my own digital scrapbooking for a change, rather than just making templates for others!!  This one is my first attempt, I just wish i could get the original size picture up here because you just cant see enough detail at all!!

Oh well, you get the idea anyway.  Smiley

I will put a bit more of an explanation up later if anyone is interested to know how I did this, but have to work so hope you like the pics  Wink

This full head and body outfit was made by myself out of rubber bath sealant, with full laced up arm gauntlets too....All UV reactive in black light, and the colour nobbles on top (hair) i did by mixing sealant with ground UV pigment paints...........  I have never seen anything like this before, and have never since!!!! 

I have also made rubber tops like crazy string vests for girls too, with crazy rubber colours..........it is fascinating to work with, and get lots of comments wearing the clothes out!!

I did follow a natural progession and make a few jewellery items later on too, but everyone nabbed those off me before i got to photograph them.....boohoo

25  free scrapbooking papers for download in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by thecraftyminx on: September 09, 2005 01:43:57 AM
Hi there, wasnt sure which bit of this forum to post in, so have got more photos up in the other scrapforum too! 

Would you like to be able to download and print scrapbooking/collage papers for free???  I am thinking of putting a whole section on this in my site in a few weeks time, so would really appreciate your feedback...  Have you downloaded similar stuff in the past anywhere, are there a lot of free resources for this sort of thing  etc,etc.  The thumbnail shown is a tie-dye effect paper, which is a bit "radical" compared to the other sedate floral designs....   Grin   comments please!

27  free printable scrap papers in Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions by thecraftyminx on: September 08, 2005 06:24:22 AM
Hi there, just wondered if any of you would like to be able to get hold of download,printable pretty scrapbooking papers???  Basically, I will be putting a section up in my site within a month or so, that will have lots and lots of free printables.....  I haven't done my research on this one, but are there a lot of free resource sites for this sort of thing already, or do you think i have stumbled across a good design idea?Huh

Ive kept to print ink friendly designs, meaning that if you start with pastel colour papers in the printer, then the actual colour ink usage is very minimal...and they are print ready too, so you dont have to edit them before printing!!!!   Feedback on this would be great, along with any ideas that you have!!!!   TA!

28  Re: For the love of trees.. in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by thecraftyminx on: August 25, 2005 11:21:26 AM
Okay so, sad as it be, this is my entry..  *waits for laughing at its pitifulness to cease.*   I just wanted to be included, and prove that toilet paper can be used alternatively..

Im big into tree -love/recycling..and so this projects was inspired by my friends, who have decided that toilet paper usage is probably one of the ways we waste trees.. i think they may have been teasing me..
So i decided that giving up toilet paper is something that no one should have to give up.. so ive been trying to create ways to reuse it (dont worry, im y experimenting with clean tp) .. and therefore..

Its a bracelet, *yay.*

please ignore my fat wrist..

and look at pony, who is a way pimper model..

A close up of texture

I have determined that when reinforced it can be knitted!

First I stole the toilet paper from the potty at my home, then i used scotch tape to reinforce it, because the sheets kept ripping apart. Then i played around for a bit, and realized loose knitted was the best technique. (I used size 6 metal kneedles.)

It was originally going to be a cuff, but it just seemed right so i stopped.
Its not properly bound-off, as im uber untalented, but i incorporated dental floos, so you'd never have known if i hadnt told you. Maybe ill get points for ingenuity now?

SO yes, comment please, cause id feel special then..

AWWWW, bless your heart!!!  Have you tried using the paper for mache projects?? Used with pva glue (elmers) watered down a little, its far superior to ripped newspaper pulp, takes food colouring brilliantly as dye, can be made into beads and baked on the lowest oven setting for half an hour (keep an eye on these tho!!) The list is endless!!!

29  Re: Orange Slice Rug in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by thecraftyminx on: August 24, 2005 02:25:22 AM
First off, I love all the different things people have used to crochet in this challenge.  Truly inspiring!

So, here's my contribution....

The Orange Slice Rug!  It is made from a bright orange sheet (full/double size), and some fabric from a white knit sheet and an old dormitory bedspread.  I cut all the fabric into strips, tied them together, and started to crochet.  First a little white circle in the middle, then all the fabric strips from the orange sheet, then a row of white, and finally, some 'rough' fabric strips from the bedspread for the rind.  After that was done, I went back and chain-stitched through the rug (embroidered?) to make the sections.  Looks good enough to eat!

How long did it take you, from start to finish roughly, including the time it took you to cut all the strips, and sew afterwards?Huh  And how much would you sell it for......hypathetically speaking??  I love it by the way, u very clever Wink...

30  Brass beaded Cuff Bracelet in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by thecraftyminx on: August 24, 2005 02:19:16 AM
This is my entry for this months challenge.  I Did this earlier this year.  I pre-threaded lots of beads onto the spool of wire before I started doing anything else.  Then using two different size needles I knitted a small rectangle, dragging a few beads up from the spool as I went along.  I made sure that I only threaded the occasional larger pearl one as they are meant to just add a little contrast, not be the main feature.  I finished the cuff off by simply "sewing" the seams together like you would on a jumper Grin

Just wish I could get my pics up here bigger like everyone elses, Cos you really cant see the detail too well in these ones   Undecided
