1  Re: Mini Art Quilt Swap 6 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Andrea_c on: March 08, 2013 05:53:24 PM
I finally got my Quilt from PerfectlyBohemian today! I'm soooo happy! It traveled far and wide to get to me.
I opened the package sooo fast,and what I saw inside made me smile..
She totally followed the themes I wanted,first of all, the autumn theme with colors that I love,and of course the most important part,which was for the quilt to feature my two babies,the weiners Baguette (black toy Dachshund) and Dr.Feynman (miniature red Dachshund),my two dog children.There they are,snuggling on a bed of leaves,as they would.
I absolutely love my quilt,it's sooo soft 'cause it's made of sweaters,and all the details are felted with an awesome technique my partner does that also includes old sweaters.My weiners look sooo cute...thanks Jessica! I can't wait to hang it

And the gorgeous autumn themed back fabric,I love it:

2  Revival of a Paper Napking Roll Holder! wohoo! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Andrea_c on: September 09, 2009 06:41:38 PM
This is my first post EVER. I've been a member since 2005.God I love this site,don't you?..creativity is so beautiful.

Anyway,my mom was about to throw out this paper napking roll holder...as soon as I saw it ,I was inspired to do something with it. I really liked all the re-creations done with paper techniques,so I thought I'd give it a try 'cause I love paper and I had a bunch of old magazines waiting to be used.Sorry for the bad quality,cellphone pics.

Here's the Before pic:

And the whole work description:

1.Sanding it down.
2.I cut mostly colorful papers in the shape of long triangles.A lot of them.
3.Done.The secret to this look is alternating the triangles in color and trying to glue them in different directions.
It looked too matte for my liking,so I decided to varnish the whole thing.
4.Cut out a circle of Eva foam to put in the base,for a more profesional look.

After the varnish,here's the final result:

I went for a more plastic,modern look.I'm already cutting tons of triangles 'cause I want to make a lot more stuff using this colorful technique (including some coasters). It looks 100% BETTER in person though.

P.S:I used Palmer Wateproof Glossy Varnish.It's great.
