1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / printed fabric- it's buttons! on: March 14, 2008 05:00:26 PM
So I have recently become very interested in textile design and printing my own fabric. This is one i made of a bunch of buttons. It's a pretty simple design, but I really like it. I had a huge screen and made 1/4 yard pieces. I want to make an even bigger screen to do fabric by the yardage.  Cheesy eh, we'll see.

hope you like it, thanks!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Dreamweaver <3 = new website, opinions? on: August 23, 2007 11:24:10 PM
So after some many long hours at the computer, I am finally almost done with my new website for my business using dreamweaver. I also just finished a dreamweaver class and learned some fancy new tricks. I wanted to mainly use this site as a gateway into my etsy shop and also as a frequently updated online portfolio for potential clients and employers (I'm a ucla design student, so I do design and photography, that sort of thing) So opinions?, I really want to know what you guys think. And criticism is welcome, I want to improve it as much as possible. Here's the link http://www.loverlyink.com Thanks!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / PLEATNESS BAGS! now enriched with tutorial goodness! pg 10 on: June 21, 2007 03:54:28 PM
probably the most complex type of bag I have ever made, but it was totally worth it and i really love how they keep turning out. I have a whole bunch in my closet, but here are a few of my favorites. I made them with really sturdy cotton, so they are all pretty stiff without the use of interfacing and they all have completely closed and zippered tops. I use my own and I have used it for almost a year and it's surprisingly still really sturdy. I love it! So I present to you my pleatness bags filled with oh so much pleatness goodness.

polkadotted pleatness

rescue team pleatness

pretty pleatness

argyled pleatness

paisley pleatness

pirate pleatness

so I hope you like them all. They were really complex to pattern and make, but i think they all came out really well. I'm currently working on more to depleat my fabric stock (I have way too much fabric).

I made more (ok so the last 2 aren't exactly pleated, but it was the same pattern, so I figured what the heck)

They're cameras!

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Typographic Pop Up Book on: June 16, 2007 08:05:17 PM
Long time, no see. I haven't been on craftster in more than a year because I have been so busy with school. But now I have time to make and post all of those things I have been dreaming up all year. I am a design major at ucla and because housing sucks, I havent had enough room to do any crafts or sewing until now, when I can get a double. But anyways, here is my final project for my typography class. We had to hand bind 40 of our best typographic designs into a well planned and thought out book. Each design is
for a book cover for oscar wilde's the picture of dorian gray, and I wanted to make all of my designs pop, so I made a pop up book to go along with that theme. So here it is, I had a couple of glue/cutting problems since it was my first bookbinding adventure, but I hope I get a decent grade for it.

Here is the cover with the yellow band thingy around it (that comes off).

It has a pull out feature that changes the color of the title and shows my name and class and everything.

content page.

Here is a chapter divider. The letters popout when you lift the flap and there is another pull out feature on transparency that lists the specifications of each assignment, along with another transparency with my comments bound into the spine of the book.

Here are a couple of my type designs with front, back, and spine matter. The pages fold out from the spine of the book.

Here is another chapter divider. They vary from red, blue, and yellow on each chapter.

Sorry for the mediocre pictures. I was packing when I took them before I ran to turn the book in and I only had my desk lamp. But I hope you like them!
