Here's some of my finds.

The letter was in a book I bought at a thrift store.  Pretty heart felt.

This is a set of photos that I've been saving for a while.  They were in a frame that I bought at another thrift store.  Not exactly found but damn close enough.

There's more, but none nearly as interesting...

I did up some more prints this weekend.  I just wanted to show them off a little.

I must say, it's kind of addictive! 

Four Eyes

The Key

Robo Boogie

Paper Planes
inspired by M.I.A.

Hope you like!

They're all printed on the same colour of fabric.  However my photo taking skills are somewhat lacking and a little inconsistent.  Meh!

13  Re: Disposable Camera Swap Round 3 - GALLERIA! :) in The Swap Gallery by Scatter Kincaid on: January 21, 2008 03:04:54 PM
So I angeled in this swap for Shay.  I wanted to show off some of the photos I sent off.

For the most part my photos are of pieces of my craft room.  I recently did a BIG re-do of my little creative space.  Lots more table room and lots more colour on display!  I love it!

If you want to check out the gallery in Flickr, you can see it here.  For now, I thought I'd just show off a few of my favourites.

Little Stinky

Goose Pimples

Good Luck Kokeshi

Elly and the Light

14  Fabric Prints in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: January 13, 2008 11:04:24 PM
I just wanted to show off some of my newest crafts.

I've been cutting/carving lino stamps for just over a year now.  I'm no master, but it's fun low impact crafting for me. 

Generally I use my stamps on stationary or journals, but this time I decided to put paint to fabric.  I used Speedball screen printing ink/paint. 

I think I may have come up with some pretty cute prints!  Let me know what you think!

With Teeth

Mannequins and Machines

Blue TV

15  reCooled Neck Ties in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Scatter Kincaid on: December 31, 2007 02:54:00 AM
I can't seem to get to sleep tonight, so I'm doing the next best thing - posting projects!

I whipped up a couple of appliqued ties for Christmas gifts this year.  My DH has a cousin that loves to wear neck ties every single day. 

Ties are cool (and sort of unorthodox every day wear for a 15 year old), but they could stand to be spiffied up a little.  Both ties were bought for a dollar each.  I also bought a black leather jacket to cut up for the applique material.

Without further ado, here are my lightening bolts and a lone crow.  I'm quite please with them!

That's right.  I don't know how to tie a tie.

16  The Bird - Mature Scarf Content Ahead! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: December 31, 2007 02:31:05 AM
The was one of the many handmade items I gave out for Christmas this year.  I made a couple of reverse applique scarfs for friends and family.  One day I challenged my supervisor to pick a silhouette to be integrated into such a scarf.  After he didn't come up with much I told him that I could get a middle finger in one.  He didn't believe me so I told him that i would be his Christmas gift.

Here she is.  All fired up and ready to flip!

I hope this doesn't offend anyone.  It was a fun project to work on and completely in jest. 

Happy New Year everyone!

17  Thanks Trees! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: December 06, 2007 10:28:38 AM
This is a project that I finished up a couple of weeks ago.  It's one of the many handmade gifts that my husband and I will be giving this year.  This particular piece is for my BIL.

He's an outdoorsy kind of fella and I thought that something with a tree would suit him.  He actually had a shirt made up a while ago that said "Thanks Trees!"  I imagine it's about oxygen, pretty leaves and such.  That's half the reason I added the little stencil in the corner.  The other reason it's there is because I (foolishly) applied the iron to the cheap fleece the top side is made of.

The bottom of the blanket had an embroidered tree in the corner.  I used an image that I found on DeviantArt to create an embroidery pattern.  You can see the image here.  My rendition is not absolutely the same, but I think it turned out well nonetheless.

I backed the fleece with a piece of jersey that I've had around forever.  I'm glad I finally found a project for it that worked so well.  To keep the two pieces together I used some antique shell buttons from my collection.

I also added a little tag so that the blanket can be hung up on a hook if need be.

Here's some pictures:

If anyone has any questions or comments I'd love to hear them!

18  Record of Personal Brilliance & Personal Reflections! Spiral Bound Journals in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: November 11, 2007 02:21:02 PM
Here's some pictures of my latest journals! 

I designed the pages using a bunch of different computer programs (Paint, Word, Photoshop and my trusting old scanner).

I laminated the covers myself, but the binding was done at the copy shop.  I would love to get a machine of my own, but they're a little out of my price range for the moment.  If anyone has advice on where to find a reasonably price machine I'd love to know!

So, the backdrop on the covers is vintage wallpaper with illustrations are from vintage ads.  The fonts were added using Photoshop.   ***To the best of my knowledge the images used on the covers are either allowed to be used and/or are in public domain.  Please let me know if you have proof to the contrary:)***

19  I Love Day Planners SO Much That I Finally Made Some! (Picture Heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: November 11, 2007 02:03:20 PM
I am an organizer FREAK (but somehow still so disorganized)! 

When I was in school, buying a new planner was my favourite part of the getting-ready rituals.  Then, as soon as January came around I would find a wicked planner on sale and I would have to ditch my months old one.

Ever since I've started crafting I've wanted to design my own datebook, and last month I finally got around to it.

I used old library due date cards as a starting point for the design.  I left the actual "date" part of the page blank, so that I can start using them anytime. 

I designed the pages by using Paint, Word, Scanners and Photoshop.  This is my very first attempt at any type of graphic designing.  It was kind of fun actually!

I also added a book list section because a) I'm a lists freak and b) I'm a books freak.  There's two sections; Books to Be Read and The Best Books.  I've already started filling them out.

I did two different covers.  Same words; different fonts.  I laminated the covers myself but the binding was done by the good people at Staples.  Now I want a coil binding machine for Christmas!   ***To the best of my knowledge the images used on the covers are either allowed to be used and/or are in public domain.  Please let me know if you have proof to the contrary:)***

Anyway, here's some pictures.  You can click on the link below the photos for a larger shot.

20  RoboLove and the Sleepless Owl. My First Attempt on Canvas... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Scatter Kincaid on: October 03, 2007 10:02:38 PM
So I'm invading a new board on Craftster.  It's wonderful and can only mean that I'll be add more stuff to my craft room.

I've wanted to try to put paint to canvas for a long long time now.  However, it's something that I have felt a little more than intimidated about.  Anywho, I've decided that perfection is besides the point and I went ahead and did something.

Here's my Robot Lovers...

And here's my sweet little insomniac owl...

The writings says mon hibou san sommiel doux which translates to my owl without soft sleep (or so I think).

It was fun!  I dig them and I hope you do too!
