31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: my three best photos from my holidays on: August 30, 2010 08:13:10 AM
I like the top one, too! I like the clouds, and the bird silhouette in the second one, but I'm thinking cropping the picture will unbalance it a little (presuming you're cropping out the power lines. If you're keeping the power lines, then I'm way off).  Wink

Would love to see more of the pictures from your trip!

Purple was my favorite color  when I was a kid, and I love pansies! I spent several months trying to figure out something that would work with the fabric before I bought it. Finally, when it was clear there wasn't much left, I just bought the last piece. About 7 years ago.  Smiley  I was originally going to make a shirt out of it, but I like that I managed to get an entire outfit out of it.

That's funny about your critics, katsrevenge! I'm not sure if I'd be happier this way or your way. I tend to let my daughter know when something she made has potential problems, and I don't think she likes it any more than I like wandering around with the straps uneven.  Cheesy

I should point out that I think my daughter took this picture from about the least flattering angle possible, and the flash somehow filled in under the bust so that it looks like it goes straight down from the bust, which it doesn't.

Thanks for the tips, Karen.  I haven't decided how much more I want to play with it, but I'll keep those suggestions in mind if I do decide to make changes.

Thanks!  I put a lot of time into it between the beading and the pattern design. I'm glad someone else likes it, too!

I was actually going to loosen the straps up a bit because  it's up further than I wanted (the top bodice piece doesn't go down far enough, though it's hard to see in this picture). I suppose if I moved the straps out (like you're suggesting) instead, it might fix both problems at the same time.  Smiley  I was a bit dismayed when I put up the picture and saw that because I didn't notice it when I was wearing it, and no one around here bothered to tell me.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for the tutorial!  After much pinning, revamping, and changing of the bodice (to make it more modest for church), I came up with this:

Trial version:

Final version:

Both are actually wearable, which is an improvement from some of my other patterns (apparently, I'm long-waisted, but short between the shoulders and bust). Just for fun, I took a picture of the before pattern (which I misdrafted at first), and the pattern piece I ended up using for the top bodice:

It's unlike any other pattern piece I've used for a bodice, which could explain some things.  Smiley

Cute cake!  I bet your friend loved it!

Thanks!  I'm not really very good at painting, but I do like doing it, so this was a fun project to work on! The bonus is that my partner really likes it, too!  Smiley

I suppose that's one positive to leaving the binding off (manly potholders. Who knew?). If I could have riveted them, it would have been an instant success, I suppose (either that, or if I'd found computer board fabric).  Wink
39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Crepe Paper Flowers on: August 28, 2010 02:40:47 PM
Thanks!  I did the magnolia mostly because we had a magnolia tree in our back yard when I was growing up (it's still there, actually).  And lots of roses, now that I think about it.  I would like it if they smelled, too, but I bet there are people with allergies that would like to have some flowers that don't make their noses run.  Wink

Thanks!  I really have been doing things. My son was just hogging the camera computer until he moved out last week for college.  Smiley  I still need pictures of my daughter's dress,and swim cover-up, my son's shorts, and three things from the color swap I organized in April.  Shocked   Fortunately, I made a list of all the boards along with the ones I've finished, and the projects for the ones I haven't posted, so I don't forget.  Smiley

But I got half of my finished projects posted!  Smiley 

I really enjoyed painting the t-shirt. I like to paint, even if my drawing skills are minimal and I can't shade particularly well.  I guess it's because I watched too much Bob Ross as a kid. A mistake is a "happy accident,"  not a major disaster.  Cheesy
