11  Photography: Las Vegas and the Sea in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by fingertip on: August 09, 2006 10:54:34 AM
Here are three photos that I took when I was on holiday in America.

The first two are of parts of Las Vegas. They are pretty similar colour wise but I like them:

The last one is just a random shot of the sea while I was on a ship:

12  "I Love Derren Brown" Tote (and others) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fingertip on: July 31, 2006 12:34:08 PM
For those of you who don't live in the UK, you probably have no clue who Derren Brown is... but never mind, you can enjoy the pics anyway!

My friend came round today and we went crazy and made a load of stuff. Here is the 'I <3 Derren Brown' Tote, which actually has a white lining with red polka dots, although you can't really see it in the picture. It also has a ribbon closure.

We had so much fabric left we made a whole set of stuff - we also made a purse, a really long cushion/pillow thing and a headband.

Here is another tote that I made for another friend's birthday from before. It has a hibiscus appliqued on.


Inside and lining:

just type in the address of your image between [img] tags .If you are not sure what the address of your pic is, go to a host like photobucket.com or something and then get an account and upload your photos on there. the url of the photos is given in a box under the photos, and then you just copy that url and place it between the [img] tags.

hope that helps!

Thanks everyone for all the lovely comments!

how did you make these? if you dont mind me asking.

I'm really sorry, I can't actually find the link for the tutorial on this (if anyone knows, please post).

Basically, you put 6 beads onto headpins. Then, you get 6 pieces of wire (of about 0.8mm thick) and cut it to lengths of approx 6.5cm. The you wrap them around a pen so you get these half oval shapes. You take one piece and you make two loops at the top. Then, you thread the next piece through (but make sure you also thread the headpin of the bead on too), and then you make two loops at the end of the this piece. Then, you repeat with the next piece. The top half-oval attachs onto a jump ring (I use 7mm) which then attaches onto an earwire. Then you get the remaining 3 beads and 3 pieces of wire and do the same.

I'm sorry if it's not too clear, but if I find the proper tutorial, I will post it.  Smiley

is this the center of a whole nutmeg...

if so, how did you preserve it (if you did at all)?

LOL, it's not. It's a 'betel nut' disc from the areca tree (I think). I got it online.  Smiley

These have little stars on the second glass pearl, although you can't see them very well in this picture

18  My Light Emitting Painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by fingertip on: November 12, 2005 09:33:30 AM
Okay, it doesn't really emit light, but I swear when you stand infront of it for too long you start to get this feeling that there blue light coming from it. The painting is so blue that I am always reminded of that 'True Blue' song by Bright Eyes.

Anyway, I did it as one of my final pieces for GCSE art (Exam you take in the UK when you are 16, studied over a period of two years, coursework is also included). The topic was 'Natural Form', as in flowers and fruits and stuff, but I veered off and painted some snakes. I also had to bring in two artists that 'influenced' me (it's a requirement for the final piece) and I hope you can see Hockney in there, if not Chihuly.

So. Here it is, in all its light emitting glory:

Yeah, its crazy. Comments/Critiques welcome, as always.
