11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lucy in the Sky Wth Diamonds?... psychedelic marker drawings on: February 04, 2008 01:30:58 PM

"Psychedelia Dream"


"Madd SkillZzzzz"   For a friend.

If you want closeups I am pretty sure you can zoom in at my flickr account. Let me know what you think! Thanks Smiley
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red Concentric Cirles- Bracelet on: January 05, 2008 06:54:47 PM
I found these pics of a bracelet I made forever ago, back when I was really into hemp jewelry.  Roll Eyes I made quite a few of these... I really like the effect it gives. you can make the circles bigger or smaller depending on how many strands of hemp you use.

I've recently rediscovered jewelery-making, however this time I'm using metal instead of hemp. :p
13  Georgia / Georgia: Central / Any GA State University students here? on: December 06, 2007 01:04:52 PM
Just wondering, I just transferred to GSU from south Georgia and I don't really know anyone. I'd love to meet some fellow Craftsters who go to my school Smiley
14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Hooty Who? on: November 24, 2007 06:46:01 PM
Okay so here is my color theory project for my 2-D Design class... "Design a mock-up for a stained glass window."

18"x24" on drawing paper with gouache.

It was well-received, hope it is the same here Smiley


EDIT: Sorry for the bad pic quality, I resized the images in MS Paint and I think it compressed them all weird. :/
15  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My elf costume with funky eye makeup! on: October 27, 2007 03:27:01 PM
So I decided to be an elf for Halloween. Not any particular elf... just an elf. I made the cloak and did my own makeup. All other items I had or borrowed.

Not sure why an elf would do the Captain Morgan pose but whatever :p

This makeup is what I wore to the party. And the ears? plain old scotch tape.

The eye paint in this pic is gouache... that stuff was so uncomfortable and a PITA to get off.

Oh and this one just because it's fun.... There is a broken mirror leaning up against the back of my house haha
16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I might have carpal tunnel, but I think it was worth it! on: October 17, 2007 01:21:41 PM
So this is an assignment for my 2/D Design class... create an animal portrait using only symbols. It's 17"x14" on recycled drawing paper with a .05 Micron pen.

Yes... those are all symbols. Oodles and oodles of tiny tiny circles. I also used the number 7 and the ankh symbol. I drew the whole thing in pencil first then went over it in pen. my hand hurts...


another close-up

I hope everyone likes it! I spent a lot of time on it. Let me know what you think Smiley
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / black, white and red pleated tote *4 PICS* on: October 07, 2007 12:16:40 PM
So my boss at work gave me some shirts that were too small for her and said she'd pay me to make them into purses. This is the first completed purse!!

I looked over this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.0 and just kinda ran with it. the black and white fabric is a tank top she gave me and the red fabric is some canvas I had laying around. Here's the final result!!

Her name is Rene

The inside with the snaps I installed (first time!) and the inside pocket

She loved it, I gave it to her Friday. I hope she likes the others just as much!!
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / deep V polkadot wrap shirt.. 5 pics :p on: September 17, 2007 03:47:07 PM
OK so it's my day off and I'm SICK! So I holed up in my NEW craft room and made this baby. It's funny because we just moved in and I don't have a chair for my sewing machine yet. And it's in the basement so I lugged the damn computer chair up and down two flights of stairs to make this. Not an easy feat when you can't stop sneezing. OKay enough chitchat let's get to the pics!!

and a myspace angle for good measure haha Smiley

Alright there you go! This was my first attempt at a wrap shirt, I didn't use a pattern. I have a weird method which involves laying down the fabric on the floor and then me laying on top of it and just eyeballing it that way.. haha.
It's made out of a old baby's crib bedsheet, some old white scrub pants for the ties, amd the last of my green lace trim that I had JUST enough of. ah, kismet!

Peace Smiley
19  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / "French Lavender" Fat Bottom Bag! on: September 15, 2007 08:52:50 PM
So, here's yet another FBB to grace this wonderful board... my first time doing this pattern, I finally overcame my fear and I loooooooooove it!! I finished it in about 3 and half days, did most of it at work... I couldn't wait till I got home to take piccies so excuse my office pics haha. I used a hook two sizes bigger than reccomended and I love the size, it's perfect! I also opted for crocheted straps instead of handles. Okay enough chitchat heres the piccies!

The lining was a pain in the butt but it turned out okay. The color is off here, I promise it's not really icky dishwater gray...

This is a lot closer to the true color of the lining.

Yay for crocheting on company time!!!

Thanks guys, I know there's a lot of FBB's on here but I guess that's because it's such a great pattern!
