That is an awesome piece of work and you look perfect in it. I like the dress with the petticoats. Would you mind telling me how much fabric total i would need to get started?

3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / ASIA / Anyone coming to Bali? Boy, do I have a store for you!! on: December 21, 2012 10:52:26 PM
  Hi fellow Craftsters, just came back from the coolest supplies store on the island of Bali. It is ridiculously full of beads, sequins, charms, feathers, findings, and every manner of doodad a crafty type person could ask for. Every time i go there, my heart starts to race and i can feel my pupils dilate. I am not a rep for them. I just want other people like me to experience this place. Quite inexpensive, too, unless you are like me and want to buy everything in the building. So, if your travels bring you to Bali, let me know. I will tell you where to go!

do you know those spring loaded fiskars? That's my recommendation. Pointy, sharp, and takes very little effort to use.

how about friendship bracelets or macrame necklaces? you could have several projects' worth of thread cut before the flight for those. Also, i have had good luck bringing those hideously crappy but teensy scissors that come with travel sewing kits. i think they barely register.

cool AND creepy! i am too squeamish to do something like this myself, but i'm impressed. the stitched up rat made me think, wouldn't it be kind of cool to open up the chest of a little rat and put in clockwork parts? I'm suggesting it to you 'cause i couldn't do it myself, but you definitely could...
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / i am covering our cafe with monsters! on: April 27, 2009 05:24:23 AM
hi craftsters! okay, i am only posting one monster with a monkey on its back right now, but wanted to share this one. my hubby and i have a little restaurant in Bali, and the tropics are tough on walls. they sprout cracks like crazy and it's hard to match the paint, so i just fill the cracks and cover them with creatures. what do you think?
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: My first RL collage (img heavish) on: November 19, 2008 09:08:43 PM
wow, your work is so good. you needn't fret, you're a natural talent.i think the ethnic fest should havegone with your idea.It'sso lovely. I am  a big believer in the more paper and patterns you have, the bigger your paintbox, but think about everyday papers, like newspaper or grocery bags, with a thin wash of acrylic paint over them to alter them. some of those backgrounds you have are marvelously shaded. YOu can do thatwith two complementing shades of paint, too.i also like to collage onto stretched canvas cause then you can stitch beadwork right onto it, through layers of paper and fabric. oh, and with your fabric, if you want to cut precise shapes, use thinned white glue to size the fabric
til it's stiff, then you can cut out shapes without fraying. i use a large board with a big garbage bag taped tight over it to paint on or glue on because things peel right off when they're dry, especially nice for background papers so you can slop over the edges freely. And my favorite glue is plain old pva white glue. you canuse it thinned to build up layer, dries fast,clear,and flexible. Oh yeah,i think your work would look great as beeswax collage.
you build up layers with melted  beeswax instead of glue, and it makes for a really misty old time kind of look.And pressed leaves and flowers!
Okay, will stop now..ijust get so excited....!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / a little help, please! looking for 50's textile art on: February 22, 2008 01:04:27 AM
  hi there fellow craftsters, i was wondering if anyone knows a good resource to look at 50's retro motifs that were used on textiles. Think atomic amoebic- i am thinking of sprinkling a long wall with starbursts and boomerangs, but wanted to look at some reference art first.

thanks in advance, la Fuzz
