1  Life's but a walking shadow - drawing in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by smelsmin on: October 16, 2008 06:45:54 AM
I made this for a Shakespeare inspired art competition. I drew it in pen then inked it in photoshop. There was a list of quotes to choose from, I chose "Life's but a walking shadow". It was also inspired by me mishearing some song lyrics as "my shadow won" instead of just "my shadow", lol.

I orginally planned for it to go the other way around, but I figured it worked better this way, so now the comets and slightly more than half of the drippy bits are going upwards in the black and white section.

Anywho, there's a people's choice prize so if you like it, it would be super cool if you voted for me Cheesy
Just follow the link and click on the vote button, if that doesn't work search for smelsmin in the gallery.

2  Seagull catcher and other drawings + a painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by smelsmin on: July 06, 2008 05:08:13 AM
We had to do a painting for art called "Light and Life" or something, I'm not sure how that relates to my painting, but oh well.

Then I used the character again when my brother said something about catching seagulls while we were on holidays

Then I drew this one without planning enything, but I like how it turned out

Then on the fourth of July this year, I did this one, upon realising that people were all like "yay, foruth of July" in America and I was all like "just chillin', woo".

3  Crystal Chips and Polymer clay in Beads: Completed Projects by smelsmin on: June 09, 2008 06:33:29 AM
A couple of necklaces and some bracelets I've made. I'm liking crystal chips with polymer clay beads at the moment.

The top right is just unakite, which is a lovely stone, below is sodalite and rose quartz with blue seed beads, then sunstone with bugle and seed beads.
The blue necklace is seed beads, dyed crystal and some glass beads. The purple has a t-rex charm that used to be an earring but I attached it to a clip so I can clip it to different necklaces.

4  Beads - Ladybugs and the such in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by smelsmin on: June 09, 2008 06:18:36 AM
Some beads I made. The thing to the left of the bugs is a gnome, the pink thing is a dinosaur (it's meant to be a t-rex and it looks a bit strange), the yellow things are a teapot and teacup. The duck ring is way too big because I thought the clay would shrink more. I used seed beads for the spots and eyes on the ladybugs.

Sorry for the out of focusness.

6  The Spider Princess! in CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES by smelsmin on: July 04, 2007 11:05:53 PM
 So upon pondering what I could make for the challenge, I realised it was indeed the 5th of July! But lucky for me, I live in Australia so I had time to make something. So I got out some wire, pliers and a comb...

By itself:

With a spider earring (the spider was inspired by a tutorial that was posted here on Craftster):

On the head of the spider princess, who wears sunglasses when she must leave her royal cave and venture to the realms of the internet (it appears another spider has joined in on the fun of the photoshoot Tongue):

Other earrings can be used too:

Or not Tongue

7  Rainbow hat and camera cosy + Shroom! (6 pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by smelsmin on: June 25, 2007 10:12:39 PM
I learnt to crochet some time last year, at 1am or something (except that I was doing slip stitch instead of single because my instructions were unclear Tongue) so here are some things I've made (mostly at school during lunch and when watching videos in class and whatnot).

My rainbow hat, I made it a bit too big and I don't really like the pink at the top. I made it to use up the yarn I had from a learn to crochet kit I had, but I still have some of it.
Please excuse my odd attempt at hiding my identity Tongue

A camera case, also rainbow, modelled by my bear

The shroom from crochetme, made with speckled yarn (I made this last year when I figured out how to increase and decrease)

And a purple alien

You could make a top hat ring (or maybe for watches because it's your brothers bathroom)  holder.
If you have/need one you could paint a laundry basket or rubbish in with oompa loompas or candy or whatever.
Brown (or lime green or purple) towels with candy related trim.
Golden ticket photo frame.
You could fabric paint or embroider a bathrobe for the sake of it.
Theres this special type of paint that you draw with onto plastic, then you peel it off and you have a groovy thingy you can stick on glass ie. a mirror and then you can peel them off again (but they go kinda odd and ruined if you do that after leaving them on).
You could make felt food airfresheners and hang them around the room on ribbons.

Oh, and you could modpodge wonka wrappers to something.
And if for some strange reason you knew how to make toilet seats, you could make one with stuff in it. But most people (me included) don't know how to make toilet seats...

And you could make a toilet paper holder by getting clay to make a top hat, and having a peice of wire sticking out like in this piccy:
