111  Re: Shrinky Dink Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Glamis on: July 08, 2009 02:20:46 AM

I received my absolutely awesome package on Tuesday. I love it so much it is perfect. And because I am so exited about it I took a whole lot of pics.

First of all my favourite.

a set of "book aids"  with sheets taken from an Edgar Allen Poe book. The shrinks match the storytitel on the sheets like the heart for "the tell-tale heart or the rising hand for "the premature burial. They are so very beautiful and well thought-out

Here are the shrink parts in detail.

and here is my other favourite

a bug pouch! A Chafer beetle in my favourite green. It is stunning.

a close-up of the beetle. See how absolutely consummate it is painted?!
The picture does not do it any justice

Here is a shot of the lining. It matches the bag perfectly!

and a close-up of the zipper pull: a monarch butterlys chrysalis
same annotation as for the bug

and now my absolute favourite off all:
The "works of Edgar Allen Poe. (You will soon discover what the bookmarks where made from)

and a note:

as I opened it..

...a Monarch butterfly necklace. I forget to breath for a few minutes because it is so gorgeous! Again the pics do not do it any justice. It was fixed in there with tiny nails to make it look like one of those butterfly displays.(pic was taken after I ripped the necklace out)

A close up:

another close-up to see more of the painting

isnt it pretty?!

and last but not least me and my happy face modelling it. I wore it the whole day (even through it didn't really match my sloppy cloth) and had a hard time taking it of for the night. I am pretty shure I am going to wear it for my sis wedding.

she also send some shrinks that did not come out very well:

Batman, Night of the living dead, Sin city

I love how everything coordinates together. Mlheran you did an awesome painting job everthing is so  thought-out and detailed. I am a very lucky girl that we got paired. THANK YOU!!!! Now I am totally swap anxious about my package

So here is the huge and awesome package from monkey girl that I already received on Wednesday.
She wrapped every piece individually in some shiny silver/gold paper, tied it up with some nice green ribbon and added a tag to every piece. Unfortunately I was too excited to unwrap anything and could not wait till bf showed up with the camera, so no photos of the wrapped goodies.

Let's start with the  nice wine charms. Witches and Devils. I do not drink wine but I think I can repurpose them as stitch markers and to do some creepy knitting..

then there were this wounderfull note cards. I think they are made from some kind of trading card because the line under each of the images says: Bloodsuckers and other Monsters. The remind me a bit of Christmas cards because of the metallic and maybe I am going to use the next Xmas for my atheistical friends., If I am able to let them go. They are really, really cool!

next come some cute little dolls. They kind of look like if they attacked each other. My cat is scared of them so I hang them at the wall where she likes to sharpen her claws. But she found another place. Sigh!

followed by this art work picture. The colours fit my kitchen colour concept!

now this mysterious item. A book. But what kind of book?

It is a jewelry case filled with little preciosities guarded by a big spider

Here is the content:
A beautiful necklace with tiny stars (I love stars)and a spider ring that won't fit any of my stubby fingers but I think I will turn it into a brooch

Some neat barrettes that I already wore several times and with pride and a great brooch that went directly on my bag

and last but not least fantastic earrings, axes, skull with a rose in the mouth and bones with bows

but that was not all.
She also sent me a heap of extras: Helloween plastic pipes, some more of the skull with roses in the mouth pendants, cute vampire stickers and this rad fabric with silver foil bats on it

Finally here is a group shot of everything. I hope I did not forget anything

OK I am running out of positive adjectives I know. I loved it. As far as I can see she dismembered a glow-inthe-dark skeleton but there are some parts missing. Where is the rib cage? And what happend to the lower limbs? And the skull? And where did the hands from the picture and the jewelry case came from? Scary!  Wink

I hope you guys are not to jealous and I am looking forward to a personal swap to exchange Korean goodies and German chocolate!
Thank you monkey girl!

114  Decorated jar lids in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Glamis on: April 16, 2009 01:35:48 PM

I did this for my family members for Easter. They are made on the lids of washed out pickles etc. glasses with polymer clay.

This was for my Dad, guess what his hobby is?!

This one was for my brother, he is a book seller and bibliophilic. It shows some of his favourite books, can you guess them? Cheesy

This was for my sister. Her initials are MM and she loves herself Wink

And the last one was for my Mom who obviously loves Flowers, it came out a bit too lurid. Can you guess the flowers? Cheesy

Here is a group shot. I filled all the jars with yummy licorice candy and  chocolates for Mom

115  fly costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by Glamis on: March 03, 2009 02:20:09 AM
German carnival just ended and I wanted to dress up as a fly (That is a fly swatter in my hand)

I sewed kind of a cuirass. It is padded in the front and fastened with Velcro at the sides

the wings came out quite crappy. I made a frame from twirled wire and fused saran wrap around it. Then I painted the nerves on it with a sharpie. They were flat in the beginning but the wind twisted them. For the feelers I just twirled two pipe cleaner around a hair circlet. I was suprised that they really stood up all the time.

I made the eyes from dollar shop colanders that I spraypainted. I put some polymer clay things on it so that I can connect them with some thread in the middle.

my attempt to fly away (maybe heading for some shit Grin)

117  some more nasty cupcakes in Dessert by Glamis on: February 13, 2009 05:34:13 AM
I made this for my kinky best friends birthdayparty (on Feb, 14th, shes a child of love)

The labia are made from marchpane and the I covered it all with icing. I know the clit is a bit big but I guess that will pay for some dirty jokes. I especially like how the colour turned out.
