21  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - February 2012's GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by white_lilyblossom on: March 07, 2012 02:05:38 AM
I got my cards today! I am super excited since this is the first ATC I received, ever, and what a way to start! IsikkahJai sent me not one, but two amazing ATCs, for my mythology theme.

The first one is titled "Chlio: Muse of History". It has a description: Chlio (or Kleio) was one of the 7 muses, goddesses of the arts. She is often portrayed sitting beside a chest of books or writing in a book as if she were truly writing history.
The awesomeness:

The second one (which one was the bonus, I wonder) is titled "Manannan Maclire, Celtic Deity of the Sea". The description: Celtic Deity of the ocean. Gave king Conmac a cup that would break when 3 lies were spoken over it and would be made whole when 3 truths were spoken over it.
The awesomeness (for some reason it turned out blurry. Maybe my scanner was too bedazzled by all the shiny):

Thank you IsikkahJai! I adore them.

22  New ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by white_lilyblossom on: February 22, 2012 10:13:20 AM
Some new ATCs. I don't feel the inspiration anymore with my Zodiac theme, so I'm uploading the one I did so far:

I also did a dandelion faerie:

Then I felt a bit lost again, no inspiration, so I've decided to change techniques. I don't normally use a lot of watercolour, but my usual oils are a bit heavy for this size, so I gave it a go. I rather like the result, I'm going to keep with it for a bit, until I get bored again.
This one is my favourite so far, she reminded me of Frida Kahlo a bit, even though she's really based on an Asian girl from a magazine:

This one was my mom's favourite. The colours turned out a bit dull for my taste, but it gives it an "illustration" quality I quite enjoy:

This one I didn't like, but my sister said it's her favourite, so I thought I'd still upload it:

I like the colours in this one, but I really wish I had a white gel pen to embellish the dress - they are surprisingly hard to find!

This one I'm on the fence about: I like the overall look, but the face is a bit messed up:

Let me know what you think!

23  Bead Embroidery Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by white_lilyblossom on: February 18, 2012 02:16:58 PM
A pair of earrings I made for my mom. The glass "stones" are actually pink, not white like they look in the photo.

24  More ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by white_lilyblossom on: February 17, 2012 02:25:15 PM
This is turning fast into a kind of obsession Cheesy Four more ATCs I did today. I actually did two more, but one is for the swap (yay!) and the other the first of a series, so I'll wait until all of them are done to post. Teaser: It's the zodiac. I did Aries today. I'll try to do at least three more tomorrow.

As always, my scanner kills the shading. Please try to imagine everything a little less flat than this.

What do you think? I think I really need a white gel pen... Grin

25  Bead Embroidery Necklace in Beads: Completed Projects by white_lilyblossom on: February 15, 2012 06:01:05 AM
This is my second try at bead embroidery. It's  a bit smaller and simpler than the last piece I made. It's for my mom, she asked for something smaller and chose the general colour scheme. I chose the design and the specific beads. I think it turned out rather well, I like it better than my first piece. Let me know what you think!

a close up:

The lightning is a bit bad, I know. I'll ask my dad to get a better shot on Friday.

My next project: earrings. Stay tuned!

26  New ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by white_lilyblossom on: February 12, 2012 11:05:09 PM
Hi! After all the encouragement and great responses I got for my last ATCs, I'd thought I'd give it a second try. Obviously, my style has changed a bit since 2008, but I like to think it did so for the better. These were done with pen, markers and coloured pencils. Again, the scanning messes the colouring and shading a little, I tried to fix it by playing with the contrast but the light colours still get washed out. Oh well, next time.

Let me know what you think!

27  First ATC in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by white_lilyblossom on: February 12, 2012 02:12:57 AM
Actually I drew these ages ago, around 2008, but I've only started posting in crafster in the last week or so. This is my first and last try in ATCs. Maybe I should pick it up again now that I'm posting. Joining a swap could be fun!
These were drawn using markers, coloured pencils, a 0.4 black pen and some white acrylic. I cut the paper from tea boxes and used the back. Next time I'll probably glue white paper over the tea boxes, they have an odd colour and texture. Some of them turned out a bit funky in colour from the scan - I wasn't sure how to fix that.

Let me know what you think!

28  Bead Embroidery Neckpiece in Beads: Completed Projects by white_lilyblossom on: February 09, 2012 02:10:07 AM
My first try at bead embroidery. I saw some great things online and thought I'd give it a try. It's a bit on the huge side so I don't know who would actually wear it, but I'm rather satisfied with my first attempt. The "stones" are polymer clay (first time touching that since I was about five... not really satisfied with that part but oh well). Let me know what you think!

I used Robin Atkin's awesome tutorial, which you can find as a free e-book online, to learn the basics.
