My lord!  I finally have pictures!!

First I have to say thank you to my great partner!  Fabulous communication throughout - which I sooo appreciate!

Unfortunately I have to say that by the time my package got to me it had been severely abused and some stuff was damaged.   Cry

Nonetheless, the package was great!  Here's the photos:

*This is a scaned copy of a really great original piece.  Unfortunately she came a little beat up, but no worries, she's still getting the love she deserves!*

*This is a cuff bracelet with a really cool concept.  Unfortunately it came busted.  I must admit that I was a little stumped at first (I didn't realize that it was broken), but it's making sense in my head now.  I'm super bummed that it's broken.*

24  Autumn Flip in Beads: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: September 13, 2007 10:41:24 PM
So this necklace is the first in a series of adjustable necklaces with an extra large toggle closure.

It's a new style that I've been playing around with.  I like it and I think it speaks well to my own personal style. 

Here she is:

It's a pretty simple necklace and doesn't take much in way of construction.  If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask!

I think I'd like to try out a different chain just for something different.  Is anyone familiar with somewhere online to buy good quality chain at a decent price?

25  Whatever! She's the World's Greatest! Shrink Plastic Necklaces for a Friend in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: September 13, 2007 10:34:13 PM
So I'm sending off a birthday package to my friend in Korea.  I miss her tonnes and I wanted to make a little something something to show her that I care.

In the good ole days she and I would sit in the office and blab on and make poop jokes.  We're living proof that age has very little to do with maturity.  Grin

Anywoo, she and my husband (who works in the same office) would yammer on and on about which of them was actually The World's Greatest.  Hands down it's her, but I can't appear to play favourites.

So in tribute to my favourite I made a couple WG's necklaces.  Here they are:

I also decided to add another necklace to the bunch.  She's a big fan of the word tevs as a substitute for whatever.  I tried once to use behaviour modification techniques to kill the over usage of the word, but it ended up with me laughing on the floor. 

Here's the finished piece:

I know it's not super impressive work, but it was fun to try out shrink plastic for the first time.

Hey Everyone!

I think that everyone has received their positive feedback by now.  If there's any issues please let me know.

I'm a horrible swap partner and I still havne't taken shots of the stuff I received, but I do have photos of the stuff that I made.  Consider these a sneak preview to what Rhino may post later on....

This was my first attempt at collage art.  I liked it but I have a loooong way to go!

27  My Newest Pieces! I'm Loving the Layered Thing! (IMAGE HEAVY) in Beads: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: September 08, 2007 03:26:18 PM
Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to post some of my newer pieces.  I've been doing the long wrap necklaces lately.  I generally use 3 pieces of tigers tail wire and intertwine beads and whatnot on them.  I usually end up with something that I like.

If anyone has any questions on techniques or sources for beads, please feel free to ask here or PM me.  I'm more than happy to help..

I've included small photos in the post, but the links below the photo show a much larger photo for greater detail.

I am a huge guitar hero geek and would absolutely worship you if you could post the stencil print u used as i would love to replicate this t-shirt!

Thank you  Cheesy

No problem!

Here's the font:


and here's the guitar that I used:

Oh, this stencil was brought to you by the good people at Stencilry

When I printed off the guitar I actually split the graphic in half and printed one half on one sheet and the other on another piece of paper.  That's how I got the guitar to be so big. 

To do this you would pull up in the image in Photoshop or Microsoft Image Viewer.  Crop the picture to show just a half of the guitar.
Go to Save As and save as "One Half" (or whatever, I'm not a file name boss).
Go back to program and Undo the Crop
Crop the picture to show the OTHER half of the guitar.
Go to Save As and save as "Other Half" (now, this time I demand that you name it "Other Half"  Wink)
Now you have two files that together form one picture.
Import these photos to Word and resize to whatever size you want your guitar to be. (The graphic will come out a little bumpy because it's bigger than it's intended to be.  No biggie though.)
Print off the two pages and put them together to form one giantly awesome guitar!

To make the three dots I just used a single hole punch to make holes in the freezer paper.  I suck as cutting out decent circles.  Just iron on the "holey" freezer paper after the guitar paint has dried.

I'm out for now!  Let me know if you have any questions!

I'm home and I've finally finished putting together a image file for the Hello Potter font.  I don't have a stencil for the stars that are by the font.  The only reason they're there is because I accidently blobbed paint on the shirt while I was working!

Here she is:

Oh yeah!  I made the Hot Topics on the home page!  That's a first for me!

So I found some free time and I put together the Hello Potter graphic stencil.  I'll be adding the font thingus on Sunday or Monday.

Here she is in all her glory:


There's not star in the cape in the graphic.  That's just something I added myself.

Let me know if you have any questions!  I'm happy to help!

If you make one of your own please let me know (add it to this thread even!).  I'd love to see your work. Grin
