2  lucha lucha cha cha cha! in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by amylooooo on: September 28, 2007 10:45:19 PM
Clothesline! Get it, hoo haa.
This is my original drawing.  My brother and I both do the screening.
I hope you guys like it.
Btw, do you guys/gals think that clothesline is implied? Or do you think we should keep the written word "clothesline" in the design.
I really would like your input because we both disagree.

This is my brother and partner in crime.  We make these shirts together.

3  rasterbation is not a sin...+semi-tute (pic hvy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by amylooooo on: August 12, 2006 10:40:34 PM
I had a lot of space on my wall and needed something fairly large to fill the void. as you can see I still have much space. My brother made me a house warming gift of a lamp made with velum paper and acetate of a painting by Souther Salazar.  If you have not seen his work you should check it out.  Google him. 
My brother needs to take pictures of this lamp and post it because it is way cool.  He also has made his own rasterbation and it turned out really neat.  I wanted to try it.  I digress.  So I found a picture by Souther that liked and he gave me the fed-ex/kinkos hook up and printed out all the pages.
I must add that I rent, and nailing 20 holes in the wall was not a good idea,plus if you nail through the picture, some of the picture is ruined, nor is taping it to the wall the classiest way... so I came up with my own solution... here it is!

Updated: here are mo better pictures

semi-tute:  (more about how to mount/hang your completed project without ruining your wall, less about how to rasterbate)

1.  choose a picture that you desire.

2.  go to the homakasu rasterbation website, it's easy to find, then rasterbate...print out the sheets of paper. (at home or school or Fed/ex!)

3.  get rubber cement, scissors, and black ( or any color you want) foam board.

4.  there will be borders around each square, cut it out if you wish, cut foam board the same size as each picture.

5. rubber cement your pictures to the foam boards.

6. get some skinny pieces of wood from menards, very skinny and flat, and paint them the same color as your wall so that you see more picture and less of what it's mounted to.

7.  cut the wood a little less than the width of the whole picture, my wood was so thin that i could break it with my hands. and I am so strong haha. 

8. space the boards evenly for the desired height of the picture,get a hammer and nail them to the wall, only 2 nails per wooden slat, *helpful hint: you can space your pictures out on the floor which will give you an idea of the measurement of the height.

9.  use adhesive mounting tape to mount your pictures to each wooden slat til you are done.  make sure you do one row at a time so you can measure the space in between each picture.  You can space it any way that you desire. I did a rulers width between each pic.

10.  You dont have to do this but I did, lay on the ground and stretch out your back, I also like to do the childs pose.  Then say out loud "geez that wasnt so hard, why did I procrastinate this project for so long?"  Then take a nap.

4  Skullyhead Tote in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by amylooooo on: March 02, 2006 09:32:13 PM
 This is number 2 of my silk screening projects.  Once again I have used the embroidery hoop method and I recommend it to everyone with skinny wallets.  Anyways this tote bag is what I use for my embroidery stuff and the bag was so boring so of course I had to put a skullyhead picture on it.  I got this picture from stencilry but i had to modify it to fit my hoop.  Here are several views of it...

There is no flash on my camera and despite what i'd like to think, im no good at photography therefore the quality is poor. 

since this is my embroidery bag, i just might embroider something around it.  Any suggestions? 

this is exactly what i picture the inside of my skull to look like.

5  FIRE BAAD! Frankenstein good... in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by amylooooo on: February 28, 2006 09:24:44 PM
This is my first attempt at silkscreening.  Well, silkscreening the simple cheap way. I have to represent and thank the girl who put up that tutorial for the technique with the embroidery hoop and mod podge.  I dont have time to look for her but if you are that girl, and you read this, thank you.  I also have to give props to the stencilry girl,( i think) where i got this cool picture and where i plan to get a few others. 

I think the flash on my camera works poorly or not at all, so i had to use my bedroom lighting, which is red.  Sorry about the poor quality but let me know if you like it, or if you want tell me it stinks I dont care because I like it and i'm the only one who has to wear it.

this is me wearing it

this is frankie relaxing, ps when i took this picture i think he smiled...dont you?

6  "t-shirt-tag" tank top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by amylooooo on: February 05, 2006 03:27:31 PM
For this project I cut out all the tags in my t-shirts which probably took me longer than the actual project itself, once I got a little help from friends  I was set.  I used regular tank top pattern and  layed the tags out over the pattern for the front of the tank.  The back is made of black rayon fabric I think.  I started hand sewing and machine sewing the tags together.  I haven't hemmed it yet because i'm not sure how to, the bottom tags are kinda splitting apart.  I was thinking maybe sewing lace on the bottom. 

Front view of tank top by itself:

Here's me wearing it:

Here's a closer look at some the tags:
