1  You know you're a band geek when... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by british_weirdo on: July 16, 2007 06:27:47 PM
...You save up a bunch of old classical music and turn it into a purse!

I got the idea just today actually and I adore the outcome. It's a little..weak meaning I'm not sure how much it can hold. So I figure it's mostly going to be for show. I hope you guys like it =D

This is the front. The music is Death Valley Suite.

Finished piece. Entire thing made of sheetmusic with a cardboard bottom for support.

side view. =D

Again, I hope you guys enjoy it!
Please let me know what you think. Good/bad.

2  Vinyl notebook =) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by british_weirdo on: March 29, 2007 05:43:01 PM
So normally, I'm a shirt designer and duct tape artist. I make duct tape purses and stencil shirts and such. Well I haven't done anything in a while, so I wanted something new. I came into this board hoping to find something interesting because i absolutely LOVE to write. A notebook/journal would be perfect! I came across one topic that used old vinyl records as covers. It's the coolest thing ever. So I took a show and tried it! Here are the results!

This is the front of the journal.

This is the inside.
I had to trip the paper and repunch holes to fit the record. It wasn't too bad.

Overall it took me about 1.5 hours because I did everything by hand. I cut all the paper, repunched holes, x-acto knife to cut the record AND a heated nail for the record holes.

Please let me know what you think =)

3  Anatomy Extra Credit Ornament! in Completed Projects by british_weirdo on: December 15, 2006 06:20:52 PM
The other day I had to make an ornament relating to anatomy for extra credit. It also had to be somewhat related to christmas. So I decided on a Crayold Model Magic Foam ear!

It's more detailed as well as lighter pink. My camera wouldnt get a good picture.

So how does it look? It's really creepy for me lol!

Thanks for the ideas everyone! I loved them! So here's what I decided on:

It's an ear. It's much more detailed in person but my camera would not get a good picture. It is also lighter pink. More of a peachy skin tone. It is very realistic and creepy looking lol. My teacher LOVED it! And now our tree (the Anatatree) looks like it has an ear Cheesy

She wants me to make another one so it'll be even.
I hope you all enjoyed it!
Thanks again for your ideas!

5  First Vinyl Record Art. (I used fabric paint) in Completed Projects by british_weirdo on: August 19, 2006 09:53:34 PM
I know...I'm strange. I painted a vinyl record with FABRIC paint. But hey at the time it was all I had and I really wanted to try out this vinyl painting thing. So it's a bit sloppy but I have to say the fabric paint turned out nicely.


All in all it's nice. If you want quality go with acrylic. But let me know what you guys think!

Or how weird I am for using fabric paint..

(It's cheap, and dries fast =D)

6  Combination post. Stencil and a duct tape purse! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by british_weirdo on: August 11, 2006 12:41:08 PM
So since I had a combination of stenciling AND duct taping, I figure I'd post it here. I hope you enjoy.

This is a shirt I made. The stencil is a little robot and I wrote High Five by him. My mom thinks he looks like a pickle...

Theres a close up of the purse. It's 100% duct tape. The wrinkles in green are supposed to be there don't worry.

Comments are welcomed and appreciated! Thanks for looking!

7  1st time duct taper=2 amazing bags! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by british_weirdo on: July 18, 2006 12:48:02 PM
My sister and I were bored one day and decided to get into Duct Taping. I have friends who do it and they say it's fun, cheap and easy. So I decided what the heck. Normally I'm a stenciler and I have been for a while. I love it. Changing crafts for a change was awesome. Well I hope you like our purses! Comments welcomed  Grin

Front of my purse.

Inside of my purse with my name written on it.

Back of my purse. I'm debating whether or not to put something there..it's kinda plain.

Front of my little sister's purse. She's only 12 so it goes to show that anyone can do these.

Back of her purse. The sides also have a purple stripe going down them

I hope you enjoyed them! They were super easy to make and very fun as well.

8  Marching Band 06-07 =D in Stenciling: Completed Projects by british_weirdo on: July 09, 2006 06:50:04 PM
Since I never really liked our pre-bought Marching Band shirts I decided to make my own this year. Our theme is Pirates of the Caribbean. Tell me what you think  Smiley


(The skulls eyes and nose arent done yet. )

The sleeve also says Section Leader. That's because I am this year.

Hope you enjoy!

9  First time Stenciler. 4 shirts. (there are pictures) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by british_weirdo on: March 19, 2006 11:20:51 AM
So i recently was talking with a friend and we decided we wanted to start a new hobby. I came across this website and decided to try stenciling. I made my first stencil but was nervous because i wasn't sure how it would look on a shirt. It turns out that it looked amazing and I have to decided to share what i've made!

My first stencil ever. I choose a moose because they are my favorite animals. The words at the bottom are from princess diaries 2. I'm just weird like that Smiley

My second one ever was this pac man one. I found the stencil and i thought it would look good with some metallic paints on a black shirt. It does.

My third is for my little sister. Its a bit sloppy because it was a large area and the shirt moved around a bit. For the most part it turned out alright.

My final one is the project that inspired me to get involved with stenciling. I saw this project on this website. It looked extremely complicated and i realized i probably wouldnt be able to make it until i was a lot more experienced. It's not finished yet though. The shirt is getting more decorations after the paint dries. (i just finished it about 5 minutes ago)

Well i hope you liked my shirts! Glad to sharte them and i look forward to sharing more of my projects once i do them of course.
