1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Conceptual Photoshoot on: December 18, 2009 03:55:47 PM
I had to do a project for my conceptual art class, but my original ideas were not well received. So me and my sister did an impromptu photo shoot instead.

How would you arrange the images to tell a story?

The idea is that these photos are not meant to go in any order, or tell a story. The viewer can arrange then and make their own. I would have liked to add more photos but I didn't have enough time.

ALSO I did -not- take this last photo (below). Nor did my sister. The camera took this image itself on the stairs. There are a million ways to explain this away, I left the timer on, light from the windows...but still. Creepy ghost-man silhouette is pretty awesome.

I actually laughed my butt off taking these photos. During the angry frying pan shoot I accidentally swung and hit my sister. She yelled "Son of a B-----! You hit me with a frying pan" and I LOST it.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Performance Art ideas? on: December 17, 2009 11:22:23 PM
Hello everyone.

I am in a conceptual art class and have to do a performance piece. I did come up with a few ideas but my professor shot them down.

I wanted to place a zipper over my mouth so that people must unzip the zipper to allow me to speak or respond as -they- wished. Since I am a female my professor was against this idea.

Does anyone else have ideas for a simple performance art piece? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

I decided to celebrate my return to craftster with an entry. ^_^

This little guy (or girl?) was in the Washington D.C. Natural History Museum. There was an exhibit where you could enter a room and be surrounded with hundreds of live butterflies. It was great.

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help me find THIS Fabric on: March 23, 2008 07:40:36 PM
Hi everyone,

I fell in love with a fabric called "strawberry" (the blue variation) by Alexander Henry. I am been searching the net but I can only find this yellow version

(yellow version)

I'd like to find the version with a blue background (it was a deep teal-ish blue)

Thank you so much for any and all help.
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / JELLY DONUT Tutorial on: January 29, 2008 07:04:01 PM
I'd like to have a link to all the places where this tutorial may be featured. So please just shoot me an e-mail at kittykat477@yahoo.com or a PM here on craftster before doing so. Thank you very much.

Here is my latest poly clay tutorial. I had the tute made already but I had to dissect the images into smaller chucks so that when they get resized they would still be readable. I am sorry if the watermarks and links at the end are against policy. If so I'll edit the photos. My sushi tutorial ended up all over the net so I wanted to make sure that this one had my name all over it. ^_^;;

Enough blah, blah, blah, on to the tute!

7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Question: What is Craftster's policy on ripping designs? on: January 27, 2008 11:37:34 AM
I already tried checking the following links:

Yet, I was unable to find any concrete information.

The scenario: Someone (craftster #1) sells a design/item exclusively. Then someone (craftster #2) purposefully steals these designs and sells them (while posting and advertising them here on this site). Does craftser have any rules about this?

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "Cavity" Large Jelly Donut Sculpture on: November 09, 2007 10:50:49 AM
Hi everyone, long time no post. I have been super busy with school ^_^;

Base made with:
-Chicken Wire
-Paper Mache
Painted with:
-Clear Varnish
Coated with:
-Clear Glitter
-Clear Varnish
Hair Spray
"Jelly" Made with:
-Hot Glue
-Acrylic Paint

It was pretty fun to make (Although I had glitter all over me for days). It was for my Sculpture I class. We had to bring in a random, insignificant, object. Little did we know that we would have to recreate this object at least 3 feet large in one direction. ^_^;
  • It is 3ft in diameter
  • and 1.5 feet tall.

The whole thing is hollow and very light weight. My professor thinks I should cover it in resin and use it as a coffee table  Grin
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink Cupcake Purse on: September 09, 2007 08:32:43 PM
Here is my latest purse.

Made with:
  • Brown with small white polka dot fabric
  • 1 layer of medium weight interfacing
  • Brown and White cotton thread
  • Pearl-like snap button
  • Brown nylon zipper

The Bag Has:
  • Two cupcake fabric pockets
  • Has one inner lined zipper pocket.
  • Has a matching zipper pouch with coordinating zipper and fabrics. (seen below)

I am pretty proud of this bag. It is my first time sewing an inner lined zipper pocket.  Smiley It actually wasn't that hard. I used the lovely tutorial by SewPixie here on craftster.
(Tute found here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0 )
I do wish I had used brown thread instead of white when I sewed the zipper to the pocket (can be seen in pictures below)
