11  Shiney shiney pages in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by goldfishhead on: August 27, 2006 04:59:26 PM
a few more digi pages. Youknow, they just don't make much in the way of piraty papers and accesories. Seriosuly, and Pirates are so in right now! So I improvised a bit. That coin and pearl background there I made by messing with a picture I took of a fake chest of booty while on that Underwater Adventures date I went on that I posted a page for earlier. I'm especialy proud of this one becuase I managed to find those "birthstone" saphire charms, in the exact shape of the stones on our engagement rings. This one is of our 4 year aniversary, celebrated at the MN ren fest.

That was specificaly for our anniversary. this one is for the rest of the day. thats our buddy kevin waveing the cross at us. heh. bellydancers.  Wink I love fest. I just wish I'd gotten a better picture of the fire eaters. Realism? bah! We dont need any of that here!

And, randomly, heres the yearbook page for my buudy pat. Less shiney, but so him! Hes dressed that was becuase I took the picture during a rousing game of Calvinball (you remember Calvinball...from Calvin and Hobbs?). I'm only mostly sure this one is done. what do you think?

And finaly, another event they dont make papers and accesories for. A good freind of mine, Nicole Lorenz, has been working on a novel since she was....lord...8th grade? something like that. shes almost a college grad now. Naturaly the first several versions were crappy, but she just recently finished a very nearly publishable  edit of it. So, she threw a party after she finished it, on the main charicters birthday. And, one of her guests brought a puppy! Thats her with a birthday cake for the chara on the top right, and the whole gang on the bottum right. The pics on the left are paintings (2 oils and a digital) shes done, from the story. Impressive, yes? "Sixth" is the name of the book.

the end. Comments are always appreciated!

And check out the new photo update function if you havent yet! Its so easiy I hardly knew i was useing it! Plus, anything to encorage more action around here.

12  Digital rules! a few more tires at digital pages.- IMG heavy! in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by goldfishhead on: August 09, 2006 08:33:53 PM
This may be my favorite digital page yet. There are several layers on the background, and I relay feel it expresses her well- shes a painter, who likes to work in these colors.

This one feels like an old west "WANTED" poster. I like using pics that aren't of people smiling at the camera. Especially when you have page after page of scrapbook. It really helps to add variety.

And this one is of my fishies. SunTzu and Auren. This one was an interesting experiment cause i really made no attempt to make it look like it was made of natural materials. Defiantly not something id do on every page, but it was fun to try. Can you believe I found that paper?

And now pages dedicated to events, rather than people (and fish)

my 23rd birthday. i had alot of fun with the papers. ive been waiting to use that black and white diamond.

a recent date to underwater adventures. Im not sure how i feel about this one...its hard to be snazzy and still show many pics at once, yeah?

And...ok, i feel i need to preface this one. I am not makeing fun of him. This is a very, very dear freind of mine, when he was in the hospital with leukemia. hes already home, and doing very very well. In fact, he never felt any actual discomfort from the cancer. He had the insane luck that for him, the worst parts of the experience were A: his ass hurting from all the biopsys, B: being bored out of his mind, and C: for some reason chemo made everything taste funny. Mostly like sweets, and he dosnt like sweets. These pics are for when me and his fiance went out to get him toys, and then irratated each other with them for several hours at the hospital for his entertainment.

The quote on top came from his favorite card out of the whole ordeal, made by a freind of ours. On the outside it read "We're sorry your cancer is boreing" and on the inside it read "So, to liven things up, this card has been infected with the bird flu!"

I was realy trying to capture the feel of this event. It was fun, but there was an almost forced nature to it. He was doing ok, so we were all trying very hard not to worry. The odd photo treatment was to try to catch that strange edge on everything. He goes back for a new immune system in the fall.

comments welcome, especially from you other digital scrappers. I know your out there!

Wow, things have been slow on this part of craftster.... I've been gone almost a month and there are hardly any new posts.

So, here are a few pages out of my personal yearbook. More to come once a secure permission from relevant parties (since i use full names).

This one is me:

This is my pookie!

And my fishies.

I have 5 more done, but pending approval before posting, and at least 7 more to make.

15  Gargoyle wings in Costumes: Completed Projects by goldfishhead on: May 28, 2006 01:44:54 PM
So, somehow or other I've ended up in a Sabbat Vampire LARP. Lisa and I are playing Gargoyles. But, being the bitsy little things we are, we decided to go to an art nuvou look. Then..we had to make costumes. So, here are 2 sets of wings, made out of foam, coated in this crazy substance called "Sculpt or Coat", which makes it stiff, but malleable.The white one is just a layer of the foam, with cutouts glued on, then all of it was painted. The other one is foam layers, painted, with gold leaf paint. the white one is held on because its attached to my bra. Because of her costume, Lisa couldn't wear hers on a bra, so hers is held on with the harness you see.

16  beaded feathers in Beads: Completed Projects by goldfishhead on: May 28, 2006 01:35:13 PM
I'm guessing that I'm not the only one here whose read the Heralds of Valdemar series at some point or other. In the books theres a group of people called the Taleydras (sp?), who wear these beaded feathers in their hair. So, I started making these back in highschool, and found that their a really effective meditation exercise. I can't even estimate how many assult charges have been avoided with these. I usually make 1 or 1/2 per sitting. their just feathers I found and disinfected, decorated with really thin wire, stuck through the barbs of the feather, with beads. enjoy!

17  lobster monster, renfest aniversary, and a blackout in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by goldfishhead on: May 19, 2006 06:49:40 PM
Hello:) this is my very first crafster post! Here are 3 of the pages Ive put together, for my grand project of a lulu press bound book containing my lj, potfolio, and a scrapbook.

The first is my fav- a memorial for doctor Harold Zoidberg. I have several friends I wouldn't have met without that loveable lobster. He was quite a craft project all by himself.

next, a page from a blackout several years ago. we played apples to apples by candlelight, disposing of the popsickles. I was surprised how well the pics came out. the ones with the..uh...gourds...are my former room-mates.

I attended an anime convention recently, and it was OVERRUN with catgirls. The most cliche and cheapest of all costumes. At least they would be, but my costume, the catgirl hunter, was free. thats 2 pairs of ears, one tail, and a collar hanging off my belt.

and...what I realized later was probably our 3 year anniversary, at renfest.

comments welcome. I have many, many more to go. like the saucy puppet show we saw on valentines day, the funerals of my two goldfish, the zombie dystopia panel....
