21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / I went to Sweeney's and all I got was this tshirt... on: December 30, 2008 07:05:39 AM
So I was in the past Sweeney Todd swap, and this is the tshirt I made for my partner

I wish I had better pictures of all the goodies I sent, but alas, I never think before I play photographer.

It's free handed/stenciled... I say that because I had a stencil for the first letters  and then winged it the rest of the way and the blood was a last minute effort that I thought turned out nice

So, thoughts, comments? I'd love to hear them....!

(yeah, I tried a paint marker first, and it didn't work out too well, so you can see the other markings from it  Undecided )
(and yes, I am aware I misspelled Sweeney... lol I noticed after I finished and this is why it's taken me so long to post for show, *shamed*)
22  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Pixel Dolls! on: September 12, 2008 08:09:14 AM
So ratface just posted her nice pixel creations (Click here to see them) and I do something similar to her, but mainly only people.


This one is my favorite one, haha it's the tutu style skirt <3


This is one of my latest ones, I have tons more at my site(glitterPOP.co.nr)

Does anyone else make these? I've always been curious to know! <3
23  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Dogs, Cats, and Tiki Heads! (Img heavy) on: July 26, 2008 01:30:59 AM
So here are a few more of my latest stitches!

This one is for my step-sister, figured she'd like the colors haha I tried something new, the Whipping Stitch, or it called the Whipping Running stitch? Either way, I tried it, and I love that effect haha

This one is for my step-brother and wife (mainly wife), since they love their dog so much!

This one is for my mother-in-law, she's lived in a house with 3 boys for so long it's time for some girlie things to appear around the house! Haha

I'm slowly getting better, and I think embroidery is slowly turning into my favorite craft to do, next to painting! lol Cheesy

Any tips?? Huh
24  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Birds for Inspiration and Coffee for Charm! on: July 20, 2008 01:59:52 PM
I'm trying to get my mind back into 'CRAFTING MODE' for the upcoming RHPS swap lol So I decided to do a few Sublime Stitching designs to get me going.

The first one is for my mom; she's always had a struggle with her addiction to alcohol and she's now getting help at 53. I'm really proud of her because I know it's been a huge struggle for her to deal with things in her life. I decided to make her a sparrow(or whatever kind of bird this is haha) with a banner, kind of to say 'Keep on keeping on!' I stitched it on some soft and super thin denim/cotton material, and it worked out alright I suppose haha.


the back; I'm pretty proud of it haha it's not super messy as it usually is!

In it's frame I painted. It's kind of messy and looks all quickly drawn, but I like how it looks... I don't know why either haha.

The next one is for my dad and step-mom. I thought it'd look cute in their house, and since I'm not living near them anymore, it'll be a bit of me in their house lol!


the back; once again, YAY not messy!

I'm going to get a frame to paint for this one as well, probably paint it blue haha.

I'm still a super amatur at this all, and I know a lot of the stitches are like... different lengths lol. But if anyone knows tips or great tutorial sites I'd really appreciate it!  Cheesy
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / WoW bag! on: May 15, 2008 06:55:37 AM
I was part of the World of Warcraft swap, and my partner got her things so I can now post them safely lol!

This is a bag I embroidered, took me about 10 hours spread out over 2 days lol I'm slow, I know.

It says 'Quests are just things NPC's are too lazy to do themselves' lol Memo to self, no more cursive embroidery!

The Quest Exclamation mark.

Since my partner like to crochet I added this on the back; Azeroth is the world in WoW.

Detail shots.

I didn't get a large shot of the bag, lol oops!

What do you think? Cheesy
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Another magazine bowl/vase! on: May 08, 2008 09:05:52 PM
LoL yes, another one!!

So my World of Warcraft account has been temporarily canceled(long story, money issues), so I've resorted to sitting in front of the tv going, 'what to do, what to do....'

Well I've always seen those nifty looking magazine bowls and I'm pretty sure I've seen the vases on here... >.>... could be wrong, but oh well! SO! Here's my attempt.

(Last two pictures are for fun.)

I was pretty surprised by how strong they felt and heavy they were!! I figured they would just be a decorative thing, but we can really use them to hold stuff, keys and such. Right now I'm working on a smaller set to use as tea light holders, so far so good! lol Cheesy
27  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Edward scissorhands shirt on: March 08, 2008 01:18:46 PM
I made this for the Tim Burton swap, and I'm really happy with how it came out.

I only got one picture because I was going to have my brother-in-law model it for me, but I had to mail it off lol.

My uncle-in-law, who does silk screening as a profession, told me he thinks it's awesome for a freezer paper stencil lol which I hope is a compliment lol

2 hours, mainly to let it dry.
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Jack and the Trick'r'treaters! on: March 08, 2008 01:10:44 PM
Well, my partner from the Tim Burton swap received, so I can now post this!

I made her two patches, and I'm not the best at embroidery, and I'm sure I got most of the stitches wrong, but it's a fun thing to do, and it helps entertain me.

I drew these based off some pictures I downloaded, and the Jack one was way more planned out ;;;;

I only did their heads, because I figured it'd be easier... now that I think of it, I could've done their whole bodies! Also, if anyone is a fan or knows of DeathNote, Barrel looks like Ryuk, I don't know, just personal opinion I guess.

Close up

Jack! Isn't he cute looking? The first drawing he looks super old, but I tweaked the mouth a little.

Details shot of the writing... x.x; cursive is a pain! I added the pumpkin and crown last minute, thought it was cute lol

I attached a backing... don't know why... they arn't had to remove lol

so what'cha think?
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Wild Women Weekend! on: January 30, 2008 05:57:24 PM
So my mother in law and the women in her family do a Wild Women Weekend where they all get together for a whole week and do stuff just for them and craft stuff to have fun for a weekend. Well, they all promised me this year they'd make it amazingly fun since it would be my first time going.

Well, this morning we cleaning out the kitchen for her(which made her so happy because it was so cluttered and dirty) and we found these.

Her sister is a big crafter and she made these as a funny little gift.

Can you tell what they are? They are flipflops made of pads.

close up

The label on the bag.

I think they are the FUNNIEST things ever, and I knew I had to share on here!

I found some other stuff but they belong in a different post lol
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Decent crafting area! on: December 13, 2007 01:12:38 PM
So after using two tv tray's for months (I would get pictures, but they were thrown out. They were covered in paint and all cut up.) I was at work and they brought in some tables for 149$, and I thought they were cool, but a bit too much. So one day, I was helping set up the ad's for that week and I saw it; the tables were on sale for 79$! I jumped on it lol.

Of course it was a pain in the ass to assemble, and Allen Wrenches are my enemy now, but it's together and works great! I can even put my sewing machine on it and still have loads of room to work on other things.

My cool lamp with my tall hat. Helps keep the light not so bright.

And it's all cluttered, but I was working some swap items, so yeah, excuse it.

It's pretty nice for now, but eventually I'll want something different... but I'll wait to ask for something different when we find our own place.
