31  Hello Potter and Guitar Hero! The Gifting of Co-Workers Continues! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: August 09, 2007 05:41:43 PM
Here's two of my latest stenciled pieces. 

My boss (and friend) has a love for all things Hello Kitty and Harry Potter.  So, for her birthday I thought that I would combine them both into one purple shirt.

Here she is in all her glory:

Another one of my fantastic co-workers is leaving for grad school.  First, you should know that she is THE Guitar Hero.  I know lots of us think we are, but meet her and you'll understand that it's not so.

Here's her shirt:

32  Re: Mad Jewelry Spree! I Think Necklaces and I Have To Take a "Break" !!IMG PLUMP!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: August 06, 2007 05:38:56 PM
I love the pink and green one and the black and white one.

How long does it take you to make one of those multiple strand seed beads necklaces?  They are really pretty.

The big fat multi-strand necklaces can take a bit of time.  I have an office job where I'm on the phone a lot of the day.  I just bring in to work and string while I'm talking.  I had purchased one of those beads spinners, but I could never get the hand of it.  What I do is pour a my seed beads in a small container.  I create a bit of a hook (90 degree angle type of deal) at the end of the line.  Then I just jab the hook into the container of beads.  It's a little bit faster then doing it bead by bead.  I generally string these necklaces with fishing line.
Does that make sense?  I could post pics of it if that would help.  It saves a lot of time.

All nice, but I'm in love with the first glass pendant.  Could you show a close up?

Sure!  Here's a nice big photo of it!

Lovely work, I don't think I can pick a fav they're ALL beautiful.  I am guessing for the torsades, the many rope seed bead ones, that you may have one of those wooden spinning tray thingies that auto strings seed beads?  I saw one used on a beading show and was amazed....talk about removing tedious from mass beading.  You do great work and I really appreciate having close ups of your work available, I did indeed look at all of them.  Bravo!

Thank you so much!  I appreciate the kind words!

33  Mad Jewelry Spree! I Think Necklaces and I Have To Take a "Break" !!IMG PLUMP!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: August 06, 2007 04:15:28 PM
I've been beading up a storm in my craft room over the last few weeks.  I go back to necklaces whenever I feel like I'm getting stressed out.  I consider it low-impact crafting with high-end results (witty huh?  I know!  Wink)

If anyone is ever interested in where I get my materials I'd be more than willing to share.  I won't post in here because it's against the rules, but over time I've managed to find some really good/inexpensive shops online.  I'm not affiliated with them at all, I'm more of an admiring shopper. 

You can click on the link underneath for a larger photo!

First is a sky-blue multi-strand necklace with a lampwork pendant.  I actually picked up the pendant on the island of Murano in Italy.  I had the chance to see some pretty amazing glasswork there.


The second necklace is a silver-mounted piece of pink agate strung on several strands of silver-lined transparent beads.  It's kind of too sparkly for me (or maybe too pink for me?).


This one is similar to the pinkie necklace, but I like the green pendant a little bit more.  I think when I bought it I was told it was gaspeite (sp?).  I'm more green than pink (but way more pink/green than anything else).


This is a chunky little thing.  I actually bought these beads at the Dollar Store.  Materials for this thing were MAYBE $4.  I love Dollar Stores.  I know they're a tad bit evil, but when you have a bargaining soul....


Ohhh I like this one too.  I reminds me of delicious green olives!


Like I said before, pink and green is one of my FAVOURITE colour combos.  Here's one of my many homages to their beautiful relationship!

Here's a closer/clearer detail of the pendant.  I picked this one up in Italy as well.


I made this one just yesterday.  It's one of my favourites for sure.  I just started working with tigers tail wire.  For this one I used 3 lengths of wire and made up a random wiring mess.  Pretty mess in my opinion though.  It's made with manmade turquoise, freshwater pearls and glass beads.


This one I threw together for a friends birthday gift.  She said that she digs the blue/brown colour combo.  I don't feel like I did it justice, but perhaps this one just isn't my thing.  It's most just glass beads with some freshwater pearls thrown in once in a while.


This is my ode to art deco.  Whenever I think of it I think of black and white.  A simple mess of random glass beads.  I used the same tigers tail wire method with this one.


And finally here's one of my best pieces yet (or in my opinion anyway).  It's made with Brazilian landscape jasper.  I'm not much of a gemstone/rock person, so I really have no idea what it all means.  But I do like the simplicity of the stones.  They remind me of the scene in Amelie where she collects flat rocks for skipping.


If anyone has questions about how to put any of this together feel free to ask.  I'm beading all the time, so I could easily take photos along the way. Smiley

34  First Attempt @ Microscope Slide Pendants! I've Got Blisters!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Scatter Kincaid on: July 29, 2007 10:14:33 PM
I've been meaning to hop on the microslide pendant bandwagon for some time now.  I've been busy lately trying to put together new and interesting things for a *possible* portfolio.  Hopefully this will make a good addition!

I love vintage illustrations.  Every few months I go on a splurge on kids books at thrift stores and yard sales.  I get home as quickly as I can and start cutting out the really cool/quirky drawings.

Getting the knack of soldering only took about an hour.  It's attaching the jump ring that makes me crazy.  I burned my fingertips so many times last night.  I would completely heat up a ring and grab it up a few seconds later without thinking.

Oh, and I must say thank you to alycimo for the tutorial

Here's some of the stuff that I came up with:

35  The Happy Poop Travels to South Korea! Two Shirts! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: July 20, 2007 04:43:54 PM
So my dear, sweet (and smelly) friend is heading off to South Korea in a few days to teach ESL.  I didn't think it would be proper to send her off without a couple custom made T-shirts.

Without further ado, here they are:

First is a blatant rip off of a shirt I found on Busted Tee's.  Sometimes I'm a rip-off artist and I just can't help it...


A closer look...


The second shirt is an almost-original.  My friend and I are the co-founders of one of the coolest gangs known to human kind.  However, the name of the gang is *slightly* offensive so I won't fill y'all in on the whole thing.  The 'P' stands for POOP and the 'C' stands for CREW.  I will leave the 'S' a mystery for now;) 

After seeing the 'Happy Poop' in a number of other Craftster's post Cara and I found a perfect mascot.

Please know that we are not a gun toting bandits.  More often our weapon of choice is a simple fart noise.  Perhaps in the most dire situations we could disarm our enemy with an actual fart.  But these have been happy times and my friend and I just sit in the office trying to make the dirtiest possible noises with our mouths.

Enjoy the new shirt.  Korea's going to love her!





I hope you all enjoyed my ramblings!  Happy Weekend!

Here's some pics of the final items I sent to neverseenblue:

This is a little owl figurine I picked on my trip to Italy:


The brightest yellow umbrella known to human kind.  Perhaps it is also the cutest as well.



I also included the owl stamps that I had carved.  I used it to create the stationary featured in neverseenblue's previous posts.

38  Strange-ish T Shirt Turns into Strange-ish Skivvies in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Scatter Kincaid on: June 22, 2007 06:55:59 PM
I tried following the recon tutorial on Supernaturale, but it just wasn't clicking for me.  Instead I cut up a favourite, but desperately old, pair of underwear to get a pattern. 

My I present my BLOG skivvies:



It was some strange promotional shirt for a local business.  I picked it up at the SA on half price day and stored it away for this special project.

They don't look super flattering when laid flat, but they're the cute kind of boy cut shorts that make my bum look kinda cute. 

I'll definitely be making more soon!

39  Bachelorette Party Shirts! Mildly Offensive Language... in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: June 15, 2007 11:27:10 AM
I whipped a few of these up the other night.  A coworker is a bridesmaid this summer, and wanted to add a personal touch to the bachelorette party.

The three pink shirts are for the bridesmaids (or bride's bitches).  The white one is, of course, for the bride.  The back of each shirt reads "Last Fling Before the Ring."

I found the font on DaFont.com (one of my favourite web sites out there).  I chose to do the filled font on the front and outlined font on the back. 

Here's a group shot:

40  The Menses Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by Scatter Kincaid on: June 08, 2007 04:33:06 PM
Hey all!

I haven't posted in a while, but I'm finally starting to get back into the swing of things.

 I just finished up a holiday in Italy (I'm spoiled rotten!).  While I was gone my dear friend Cara cat-sat for me.  To thank her for scooping poop and pouring food I made her a necklace she's been craving. 

She had pointed out a necklace that I wasn't especially fond of, but I thought I would give it a go.  After finally finishing it I'm feeling a little more love for it.  Intially when she showed me the picture I told her it looked like a period in necklace form.  That's how this beauty got her name.  May I present, The Menses Necklace....

Her Showing Off:

Sorry if the name offended anyone!  No harm intended!
