I think some more variation of colour in the background would help. Maybe add and blend some brighter and deeper blues to areas. the leaves are wonderful and have a really great flow and movement to them, and i think if the background had a little more oomph (such a technical term, i know) to compliment that then it might add that little something.  I really love it though, i'm such a sucker for autumn leaves...
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Purse: vintage paisley fabric and wooden handles. on: September 01, 2006 07:10:29 PM
I'm completely in love with the new bag i made today and just had to show it off.

I bought the outside fabric at a vintage shop, it was an old woven square scarf. the handles came from the same shop, although they were unfortunately attached to a hidious old bag that reaked of smoke, which i cut off and put in the garbage as soon as i got it home.

the handles were in great shape, but I sanded, stained and sealed them anyway, as they weren't the colour i wanted.

the lining fabric is just a scrap of soft, thin flannel from a bag of random fabric a friend of a friend gave me.

and onto the pictures:

hm, the bottom really isn't crooked, I swear...

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My bedroom. I'd probably call it's style french...it feels french. on: September 01, 2006 06:58:15 PM
I redid my bedroom 6 months or so ago, but it's always such a mess that I never got around to taking photos of it. So, after a cleaning frenzy last weekend, here it is.

After years of living in a cave (navy blue walls and a twin sized matress on the floor to save space) I decided it was time for a more grown up room.

My room is tiny (9'X12') and very hard to take pictures of. My bed takes up most of my room, with only two feet or so on either side of it, but i love it.

It's all very symetrical, with my bed being right under my window. there was really no other place to put a double bed without it looking weird. And I don't know if you can notice... but i use the swirly bits on my head board to hold my curtains back

mounting my guitar on my wall was the best idea ever, it's up out of the way (but still in my face, so i'll actually pick it up and use it) and it's like instant art! I just love the colour of it popping off my wall colour. (eek! my doggy has scary demon eyes in this one!)

the painting on my wall is a copy of Starry Night I did for my art class (We were studying art history, were forced to reproduce a famous work of art)

and the other corner of my room, with my dresser, mirror etc. you can't really tell from the picture, but I actually only have about a foot of space from the corner of my bed to the corner of my dresser... it's a small squeeze.
You can just barely see my floor in this one. But when i was a kid we had to rip up my carpet because of allergies and with a lack of funds, my parents ended up just sanding down and staining the basic knotty tounge and groove floor boards that houses are built with... my parents hate it and keep tring to convince me to change it, but i think it's charming and matches my endtables, even if there are holes where you can actually drop stuff down to the ceiling of the floor below...

Re-doing my room is the best thing i've done. I never get sick of the colour and could spend forever in here, it's so peaceful and relaxing...well, at least when it's clean.

They don't stand out to me either...  until I see them on something as global as craftster. Maybe Canadian backpackers should attach bottles of NN maple syrup to their backpacks instead of Tim Horton's travel mugs (please, please, please tell me that you know the commercial I'm referencing! Otherwise I'll look really stupid Tongue)

I can't wait to try out my Super 8! I got it for a total steal... $30 and it works like new!

Haha, I love that commercial! although I'm sure if anyone not canadian is reading this they're thinking we're completely crazy...

You must be Canadian! "Mmmm.... No Name maple syrup!"

haha, yeah! I always forget that things like that are canadian... No Name brand is sucha  normal seeming thing it doesn't stand out to me...

Your friend(?) with the Super 8 camera in the third picture - have they actually taken any footage with it? I just bought one this week. It's fully functional, but I wont have chance to use it until this weekend. The excitement is killing me!!

Yes, they have! I don't believe I've ever actually seen any of it, but she used it a lot and it made a fantastic old noise when it was used. I would love to have one of those, they just look fantastic.

Thanks for the comments!

my art teacher kept asking me if i had gone insane yet when i was working on it...
19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A painting and an ink poster. on: June 10, 2006 12:22:59 PM
So these are two of my art projects from last year in Grade 11 Art, I've just gotten around to taking pictures of them. (I just recently got my work back from this years class... so hopefully I can take pictures of those soon too.

So first up is a painting I did. We were suppose to look at the work of a specific artist, in hopes of finding an inspiring subect or style. My teacher reccomended some Emily Carr stuff to me, which isn't my style at all... but my teacher's the kind of person that forces you to do what she "suggests" anyway... this is called "A Path Through the Woods" and is incredibly hard to photograph considering the amount of gloss medium that's on it, and I don't think these do it any justice. so there's on fuzzy photo and one more in focus, but just ignore the blinding white spot from the flash.

We also did some work with felt tip pens, making posters. I think we had the choice of doing a political poster, two things that didn't belong together or using repeating patterns. I used repeating patterns obviously. Yes, It took forever and used up many many pens, it's a regular poster size, about 2 feet by 3 feet. I used coloured pencils for some light tinting.

Whole thing:

20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Pads for the Curvy Gal...Tutorial on: June 06, 2006 02:55:16 PM

I didn't get mine until I was 15 ..and i was so afraid i was broken and then I got it..but I havn't had one since last october..Mine is really weird i guess..I get one normally every...5 months..but Yeah..and im not pregnant..so i dont know what's going on Tongue

 On a serious note, I got my period when I was 13. It was very unpredictable. It would go away for months and come back with a vengeance. I didn't tell my mom about this until I was 15. She took me to an obgyn and I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is more common in thicker girls and it's linked to so many other problems. (diabetes, infertility...) I don't want to go into too much detail but I think you should do a little research for yourself and get it checked out! (Please!)
Yeah. My mom knows about it..and she doesnt really think i need to go. I'm pretty thick..230..but im also 5 11.  I'm sorta weirded out with going to the doctor on all of that..I don't want them poking around down there..Mine isnt really bad whehn I do get it though. It's just super irregular.

I would second the recommendation to see a doctor and can assure you it's absolutely nothing to be weirded out about and it's not so much a "poking around" sort of issue. Your doctor will know best on if you have to go for tests or not, and there's just the possibility of you being late in the game, or them trying you on BC pills to see if it will sort your period out.  Over the last year I've been through a crap load of various blood tests, ultra sounds and all sorts of things to rule out everything that could be causing irregular or non existant periods and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome seems to be what they like to call it if they can't figure out why your periods are wacky. It's the kind of thing that could have a lot of telling signs, but most people show hardly any of them. But anyway, the point is, I've learned It's always better to see a doctor if your periods haven't regulated by the time your 17-18ish.
