21  The Little Prince in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rachel.in.rainbows on: August 17, 2007 10:52:23 AM
Ummm... recently reread this book and realized how magnificent it is.  Inspired me to make a prince.  Umm... he's made from Crayola's Model Magic and is painted with acrylics.  All colours used were hand mixed by myself from the primaries, black, and white.  Not really a doll, but I couldn't find anywhere better to put him.  Took about three hours all together. Smiley

Picture number one is the little prince with the book... and the drawing that inspired me.  Check out the quarter for size reference.

Picture number two is the multiview shot.  See the details, full body with my hand, and the prince on his little wire stand, sitting on top of th book.

Hope you like it as much as I do!

22  Cross Stitched Mp3 Case - I'm proud! :D in Needlework: Completed Projects by rachel.in.rainbows on: February 08, 2007 01:17:51 PM
Okay... firstly... the pictures DO NOT do it justice.  Secondly... HEEEEHEEEE.  Unlike many of my other projects I desided to post this one.  Why? Because it's a bit unique. I haven't seen anyone do one like it.  The closest thing is the plastic canvas Nintendo DS case which can be seen here.


And no, I did not take inspiration from it.

I have a Creative Zen MicroPhoto, which if anyone has one, should know that it's hard to find a case for. Because I live in Canada, shipping for one off the Creative Labs website is close to $30 and then $40-$50 for the player is simply too much. Instead, I decided to make one. I used DMC floss <3, and stitched on perforated plastic. It came out really well, and I'm pretty pleased. The pics don't really do it justice, but that's okay.

The front has the pink bunny, the side has my name in pink, and the back has a little flower.  The top is cut out to allow access to the on/off switch and headphone jack.

Hope you like!!

23  Abstract Tree in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by rachel.in.rainbows on: February 02, 2007 11:50:41 AM
Yes... I am proud of this.  The scan isn't very good, but whatever.  It's just an abstract tree in pencil crayons we had to do for an art assignment.  Oh, yes, it is supposed to be off centre on the black! Tongue

24  Friends Are Special in Needlework: Completed Projects by rachel.in.rainbows on: February 02, 2007 11:47:25 AM
Just a little cross stitch... from an old kit I got at Value Village one day.  It's from the eighties. Tongue Pretty simple, but I like it anyways...

25  Stone Dragon in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by rachel.in.rainbows on: February 02, 2007 11:39:57 AM
Um... This was part of an art assignment in Grade 11... we had to take a toy and draw it three times from three angles, then paint it like stone with acrylics, colour it to look like wood with pencil crayons, and paint it to look like glass with water colour.  My stone is the only one worth seeing though! Tongue

Hope you like!

26  Portfolio Cover : Chinese Dragon Intertwining Intital Thingy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by rachel.in.rainbows on: January 28, 2007 10:48:50 AM
Okay... so this was our portfolio cover assignment for grade 11 art... take your initial (first or last) and make something intertwine all around it.  I decided to go with a Chinese dragon and make the entire think oriental themed.  (That's an R it's around, by the way.)  The writing around the edges means 'Rachel,' my name.

The pic is kind of crappy, and believe it or not, it's actually a square, but the corners were curling when I took the pic, but meh.  That's okay.

Coloured simply with pencil crayons, everything black other than what's on the dragon was done in ink.

Hope you like! Smiley

27  First Project Post - This Time With Pictures! in Needlework: Completed Projects by rachel.in.rainbows on: July 28, 2006 09:08:40 AM
Okay.  I've been on craftster for quite a while now, but this is my first project post.  I don't have a digital camera, which is probably why this is so delayed.  Sorry in advance if the pics don't work... I've never done this before...

I love cross stitching!  I've been cross stitching since I was probably 10 or 11, and I'm 16 now.  Some of the things I'm posting are quite old, and don't really do me justice. The things you are about to see are going to be, well, lame.  The pictures don't do them justice as I had to use a scanner.  Anyways, regardless of the shoddy conditions, here they are.

All of the designs are from kits, not my own patterns, which of course makes this more lame.

This penguin was a bit odd because it hardly fit in the frame that came with it... :S Regardless, it is next to a POG to show how tiny it is.

This one looks particularly shoddy because that blurry junk around the edges is actually lace, but the scanner didn't quite pick up on that.  Again, compared to a pog.  This one has some cotton stuffed into it though.  Where as the penguin is flat, this one is puffy!  Cheesy

The Giraffe is all half stitches... POG to compare.  The next two are roughly the same size as the giraffe.

This cow is done completely in half-stitches.

The kitty is also half-stitches.  I love the 'strand' of yarn that is trailing across!

Again, these are some poor examples of what I can do, but hey... it's what I found!

I'm currently working on a much larger project, which I will be sure to steal a friend's camera and post pics for when it's done.  (Don't hold your breath!)  It is a rather large Noah's Ark scene.
