31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Series drawings on: April 04, 2009 11:29:04 AM
In my drawing class we had to pick an object and only draw that object for a solid month. I chose one of those munny dolls I have in my room. These are just four pieces, I still have a bunch more. I'll get around to posting them eventually.

This assignment was to take our object and to draw it in both of your hands, using your other hand to draw it (I hope that made sense) The first is my left hand drawn with my right hand. The second pic the munny is in my right hand drawn with my left. You can tell because the thumb looks really off lol Smiley

This assignment was to take our object and draw it in something that would distort the object. I put the munny in one of those disposable lunch containers.

This assignment was to draw our object being unwrapped from a piece of paper.

And finally, my midterm. We were supposed to do a self protrait with our object, I put my face on the soda can but you can't really see it in this picture. This was in the fridge in my dorm room. My angles are kind of off but I'm just happy it's finished.

Thanks for looking!
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shrinky dink love <3 on: March 02, 2009 12:13:31 PM
I've been saving up "clam shell" containers because I refuse to throw them out if they are recycle-able so I've been cleaning them up and putting them into the recyling bin until I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278896.0 by Kitten Wrangler and I decided that I must make jewlrey.
I've had these made for about forever but I was at school and don't have an oven Sad So when I came home for spring break I took advantage of the oven to make shrinky dinks! I think if I get enough made I'm going to sell them at a mini table at my University's yearly block party.


This was the first batch, I love Russian nesting dolls, the dino was a request from one of my friends. I used markers on the striped dolls and the doll with the flower. They kind of look like stained glass. I used regular pencils on the dino and prisma pencils on the Russian nesting dolls with the hearts. I think from now on I'm only  going to use pencils because marker is really unpredictable.

I wanted to make a pair of large earrings, and I love hex signs it's one of those things from my area that I won't grow out of. This is a picture of how big it was vs. how much it shrunk. You can also see the tiny crayons I made for some earrings Smiley

This is a before picture of all of the rings I wanted to make, some of their colors changed ALOT so you will see what I mean about the markers being unpredictable.

This is the pencil, it's colors stayed true to color

I can't get much of a better pic than this, all of them were blurry.

Both the crayon and the bandaid got REALLY dark, so you can't really tell what either of them are but now I  know for next time.

I would love to know what you think! Thanks for looking Smiley

33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I love obnoxiously large rings :) Somewhat image heavy on: February 03, 2009 02:48:39 PM
So I asked for wire for christmas thinking I would be one step ahead of the game when it came to my 3D design class for one of our projects. It made sense, ask for the supplies for christmas so I wouldn't have to buy them. Long story short my professor wants us to buy copper wire at 50$ a pop, gross right?
I have all of this wire now and nothing to do with it. Except make obnoxious rings Smiley

This one has pink beads on it, I wrapped the wire in and around itself.

Top view

Another side view. This ring is my favorite if you can't tell Smiley

This is a pretty simple one. Single bead in the center.

This is just a ball of wire. With Purple and Blue. It kind of reminds me of an atom or something.

The first bracelet. Gryffindor inspired? I'm a nerd today.

The second bracelet that I made. I was absolutely loved this one but then I gave it to a friend for her birthday. I used green and blue beads and blue and green wire with a cute teapot clasp.

Thank you so much for looking!

34  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bloo and Cheese from Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends on: January 24, 2009 10:25:10 AM
Ok. I'm not sure where to put these, because they are sewing, recycled, and sort of needle work. So if I'm on the wrong board don't shoot me 'kay? Smiley

I got a crap load of felt from a friend who made me promise to make her something with  it. I decided to make her pillows because I'm always laying on the floor of her dorm room and steal all of hers.  We both have an insane love for Foster's.
I plan on making more, I already have all of the pieces for Eduardo cut out but I accidently left them at home when I came back from break. Sad

This is Cheese, he's my favorite.

And Bloo.

And this is my friend that I gave them to she was really really excited, which made me happy.

I'll have more imaginary friends soon for my own room.
Thanks for looking!!
35  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Once you learn to knit you never really forget on: January 10, 2009 12:05:48 PM
These were such a simple thing I'm kind of almost embarassed to post them lol!

Anyways, I haven't touched knitting needles since I was in second grade (I'm in my freshman year of college now).  But I keep picking up yarn everytime I go to the store as an impulse buy. So I decided to try and re-learn how to knit. I didn't seem to have a problem with that. I can't remember how to purl though.

A scarf with stripes in different sizes. I messed up towards the bottom and never fixed it. Oh well.

I made a cat hat. And if I look sick, it's because I am sick, haha. And if you look past my head you can see how dreadfully cold and snowy it is here >.<

My step sister says that it just looks like a square hat and not a cat hat. So I tried to make a smaller hat so the 'ears' would pop out more but I failed and this one looks a bit ridiculous on me because it's too small but I figure that's what little sisters are for.

Thanks for looking.

36  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / School work, 7 pieces on: December 15, 2008 09:28:20 AM
I had about a week to work on these. Which is not alot of time if you think about all of the other classes you have to go to, eating, sleeping, and other homework. But enough complaining, here are some of my pieces, I'll have to get pictures of others later.

This was a collage project for 2D design. It was based on who you would like for president, dead, alive, cartoon. We could only use black and white paint and paper. The letters had to be in red.

This was our second 2D design project, it had to be black and white shapes. Each shape had it's own requirements.

A color wheel project using images from another country, I chose India.

For drawing we had to choose an image and color it with charcoal and graphite.

My drawing final, which had nothing to do with drawing. We had to use items with texture and collage them on the board. I used whatever was laying around in my room. I didn't want to go out and buy anything. This was my best grade, but my prof. told me it was tacky haha. It is though.

Another final piece for drawing, it's grass in charcoal. We had to draw an item with texture.

And finally, another 2D design project, another painting based on colors. Based off of a dream. Generic self portrait. Mixing paint sucks.

Thanks for looking!
37  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 33 ENTRIES / When you can't build-a-bear, you can always build a sock monkey. on: December 05, 2008 05:02:10 PM
This year I decided to make my little sister's (Cool christmas gift. For both the fun of it and because I'm a poor college student haha Smiley I always wanted to take her to  a build a bear workshop but there aren't any nearby where I live and it's waaaaay too expensive Sad
So I did the next best thing and made her her very own build-a -bear kit using all of her favorite things.
I started by making the build a bear carton that will carry all of the supplies. I started with a regular cardboard box and painted the sides and cut the top until I had something similar to the build-a-bear "condo" after it dried I colored it with  blue sharpie marker to somewhat look like the box.

Next I gave her all of the sewing supplies that she will need in her project and taped them into the inside of a CD case.

I sewed a sock monkey and a monkey from tutes I found in the stuffie section of craftster and left them unstuffed, She can either sew one friend or two. I used her favorite colors, pink and baby blue Smiley

I put all of the stuffing she will need into a plastic baggie along with a baby mini felt heart I sewed for the inside of her stuffie.

Becca is crafty herself so I didn't include any clothing for her monkey, instead I included her own felt pieces and pieces of fabric so she can sew her own looks for her monkey.

Finally I made a birth certificate for her monkey.  All around the edges I included small pictures of cartoon monkeys that she can color in including mojojojo from the power puff girls Cheesy

That's all, thanks for looking Smiley
38  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Window painting? on: September 06, 2008 06:19:27 AM
If I decide to paint my dorm room window can I use acrylic paint on it? If I mix the paint with dish soap will it come right off when I need to clean the window? Or do I need to buy a specific paint?
39  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Painted ceiling tile on: August 24, 2008 06:20:52 AM
In my school the art hallway has every ceiling tile painted with student artwork. In senior year if you take Portfolio Prep (Basically an Honors art class) Your last project is to paint a ceiling tile loosely based on art history and however you interpret it to be. Our class is the last to get ceiling tiles so it's something  to be proud of Smiley

Anyway, my ceiling tile loosely based around Peter Max's art work with my own personal style. You can't paint with water colors on the tiles so I basically just watered acrylic paint down alot to give it a water color feel.

Thanks for looking!
40  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another Fraggle, a muppet and some totes. on: August 23, 2008 07:45:51 PM
I made a Gobo bag, he didn't come out as great as Boober in my last post, he wa made of a different material and it was harder to sew in the zipper, I couldn't really hide it. His shirt gets in the way too but I didn't want to cut it. He has lining matching his strap.

Zipper and lining, you have to lift the shirt up to get to it.

Animal, these are the only pics I have of this bag, I didn't get a great view of his front. You also have to lift up his shirt to get inside. He has hot pink lining.

This is a plain tote bag I made from a pair of my step sisters old jeans. I made a bow for it too.

This is the inside, made with material for an old skirt I made (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=150646.msg1493214#msg1493214)

And I made an army tote-ish bag gith a gathered top it was out of a super cool army jacket. I wanted to make use of the huge pockets.

This one has a thicker strap

They both have the same flowery lining. I feel like it gives it a War and Peace look Smiley Though you can't really see the fabric well.

As always, thanks for looking!
