11  a bit of everything! & more! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by goldsheepbowl on: February 01, 2011 03:34:34 PM
So, I've done quite a lot of swap art recently, and other art from way back in high school and on my days off through boredom, and i've decided i should share more with everyone Tongue

this one is a batik i did when i was 14, can't believe it's 9 years since then and it has barely faded!!

A collage painting on canvas fabric i made for sloth003 Smiley

mixed media/collage based on the weather at the time for sloth003 again Cheesy

cephalopods i made for Sylvanna Smiley

a photograph from back when it was quite rare to get much snow here (i enjoyed it before this december Tongue)

These are prints i did at art college, the first was done in layers, the second was an experiment with not removing all the cleaning solution from my block, and the third i made the other way around, i only realised after i'd put it through the print roller that it looks like a spooky face!
Also I think print one and two are signs of how much i am infact Farscape obsessed, i realised (again after i'd made them) that the first is kinda similar to the Peacekeeper symbol, and the colouring and pattern in two is like an abstract Zhaan! Tongue

Hope you all like them Smiley

finally worked out how to get pictures from my phone onto my laptop (it took me even longer to figure out how to forward texts)

So here's what i made for my partner (it's been a while so i may aswell share Smiley)

stuffed pink mustache necklace

and shrinky dink mustache earrings, the picture didn't come out too great on that one.

13  embroideries from under the sea (and over too) in Needlework: Completed Projects by goldsheepbowl on: January 28, 2011 07:31:08 AM
These are all embroideries i've done for recent swaps i've been in Smiley it's a happy coincidence that 3 of them are cephalopod based Wink

My favourite i made, rubber duck vs. squid! fun idea i based on the classic squid/ship scene, rubber ducks are awesome and my partner loves them so it was easy to design

the only one i didn't design myself, got the outline design from http://corvustristis.livejournal.com/?skip=5&tag=embroidery%20patterns

lyrics from a song by Joanna Newsom

owl on a heart knotted tree, i used blue pastel for the background and i liked how it turned out

and finally a cute little baby octopus Smiley

Hope you all enjoy Cheesy

15  Re: Mug Rug Swap (SignUp Jan 8 - Jan 22, SendOut Feb 21 2011) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by goldsheepbowl on: January 21, 2011 12:31:20 PM
I finally made a practise mug rug (i should add, i don't think i've ever completed any kind of binding before now)



My corners aren't mitered properly because i didn't take the needle out at the corner, i realised this afterwards, but i know how to do perfect ones now, so the practise is helpful Smiley
I used some handy sized scraps, because i don't want to use the good stuff til we get partners, hope you guys like it Smiley

It's about time i actually made my own post, i've made so much stuff for swaps and family and i never post any of it.
Anyway, most of this was made for the cephalopod swap or the headband swap! Hope you guys like them all Cheesy

An octopus necklace and sushi octopus necklace Smiley both polymer clay Cheesy

tentacle earrings and an Octopire plushie brooch pin Cheesy

All the different headbands i've been making, the hairclip was a commission my sister demanded i made her Wink

Hope you all like everything!! Smiley
