1  **Updated!! more scans!!***Summer 09 Sketchbook!! Lotsa scans! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ambiguouslyspecific on: June 06, 2009 04:45:05 PM
This summer, my friend and I decided that we would keep a sketchbook this summer.  I began May 17th, right after finals were over...phew! And I've been drawing one page each day...or just about.  Materials: Pen, crayons, acrylic paint, magazine pages, and lots and lots of rubber cement.  It's been a lot of fun and I'm excited to see how it's going to look with it all together.  I have so many ideas... haha. Here's what I have so far!!

These are all in order...this is when my friends took me to go surfing, for the first time! It was so much fun, I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!

These are scanned so it has two pages in one...if that makes sense...haha

My scanner didn't pick up all the colors, so they seem kind of light

I need to fix the sleeping one, don't like it too much...

The one with the flowers is actually colored in with a light sage green color.

I like the color blue, if you couldn't tell, haha Smiley

My close friends and I decided to form a band, ignoring the fact that we have neither singing nor dancing skills haha.

Wouldn't it be trippy if the moon wasn't real this whole time??

Sometimes I think too much, haha.  My parents are from China, I could've been too.


I haven't finished this page yet...

So thoughts? Comments? Hope you liked it!!! It's my summer so far!


HI! So I stopped drawing in it everyday because I ran out of steam, so I only drew when I felt like it... I feel sort of guilty but here is what I have!  Feel free to ignore my comments if they are irritating haha!

this one is still unfinished... and on the other page, I was trying to make her hair look like water, but it just looks like her brains are exploding

my friend had a mole frozen off of her, so i got scared and now use lots of sunscreen!!

the flying girl looks a little awkward.

these are my favorites so far...but my nikon's shutter broke so i was sad, so i obviously had to draw it. Roll Eyes

my friends took me body surfing!! it was sooo fun!!

this one is a little embarressing...shhhh! Lips sealed

these have funny stories behind them....or well the first one does. the second one is from That 70's Show. Cheesy

i hate this one!

i don't know why i used blue ink even though i really hate that color ink, haha


not finished, i need to practice cursive haha.

unfinished. i know its not osmosis though, i just like that word

unfinished. i know i said i was trying not to draw cartoons, but its so hard!

And as always, I love to hear your comments!!

i just had to make one to try out and it was super fun.  I don't have a glue gun so I just threaded around the flower twice and used elmer's glue and rubber cement to attach everything. haha

the colors are way more brighter and colorful in real life though.
great tutorial!!

4  Bunny Coin-Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ambiguouslyspecific on: January 20, 2006 04:03:03 PM
Hehe this board is the whole reason I got started on Craftster! I will post all the bags I made because of your inspiration...one day...haha.
I wanted to sew an mp3 player cozy for my friend, but I didn't make it big enough so oh well, I get to use it as a coin purse!!.  Made from scratch with a pom pom tail and stuffed with cotton.  I made my own pattern, but it's kind of like making a zippered lined pouch but in smaller and different size.  The head is a little floppy, so sometimes when I hold it, it looks beheaded.  I made a penguin and a chicken too, but my older sister took them.

5  First project post...scarfs and a hat.. in Knitting: Completed Projects by ambiguouslyspecific on: January 06, 2006 05:38:03 PM
In sophmore year, I spontaneously decided to teach myself a new skill and I picked knitting!!  I bought some blue yarn and then used chopsticks to knit it Tongue Roll Eyes  i just told myself that I was only going to do it once.  The only stitch i knew was knit and I knitted a very wide and very long scarf, all garter stitch. I used the whole skien of red heart yarn and it took sooo long. Boy, I thot it was the most boring thing in the world...I am very impatient and gets bored very easily.  it took me a whole month cause I kept putting it down after 10 minutes of knitting...
so here it is, I hope the picture works

After that, I found a HUGE hole near the beginning of the scarf and it wouldn't stop unraveling...so i had to unravel it...the whole thing and knit it up again.  that took 2 weeks tho but i was too fustrated and decided to never knit again Cheesy oh how very wrong i was.

In the mean time, my mom was teaching me how to crochet and I liked this better because it was fast!!
In junior year, I went to visit my cousins and they all were knitting!!  So I bought some bamboo needles and some furry white and blue yarn and they taught me some new stitches to do.  I lost that scarf cause I gave it to my mom.  I taught them how to crochet.

I went to the doctor because my wrists hurt and he said that I was going to get carpal's tunnel syndrome because I wouldn't rest while crocheting so I kind of had to stop crocheting.

After the fiasco with the furry yarn, I didn't knit that much and got into sewing.  then I went to craftster (to look at the bags) and saw the knitting and was intruiged by it.  i totally didn't know how to do stockinette or knit with dpns or circulars or any other kind of stitches.  I love to purl..hehe i like the breaks from doing the same stitches over and over.  So i made a bright green hat after learning how to purl.

Yea, I made lots of things with the bright green yarn but I gave most of them away and some are too hideous to look at.

Then I saw the illusion scarf and fell in LOVE with it and had to make it but I didn't want to make snowflakes.  So I decided to make my own pattern...(I also learned how to read a pattern...yay) and i made another scarf!!  I didn't know how to make the illusion show up on the camera...too hard with a webcam(sorry for the bad quality btw)...and also I was still in love with the stockinette stitch so i made it stockinette for the middle part.

it was fun and I made another one for my friend, bright orange and yellow and the illusion was her name,but i gave it to her for christmas.

Now i'm making a cabled scarf for my mom, but I don't have any pics of that....hehe sorry for writing so much Kiss
