1  Re: One Sheet Wonder Card Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Onyxnox on: May 25, 2018 11:07:04 AM
Great gallery so far - I love the foiled rose background gala-apples used - is that from a paper or did you make that?  I just got some materials to try foiling also - it is such a lovely detail to add.  I love the images that Averia used too and how they mimic the papers, and also the diagonal orientation - it adds some great dynamics to the cards.

I received from both kbrison and flygirl88 and they both know I *love* anything dog - I have so many adorable dog cards now and they hit the colours perfectly too!  OMG - I cannot say how much I love these cards!

From kbrison - I squealed when I opened the box because the most adorable dogs were looking up at me!  I *LOVE* the dachshund paper - look at those cute lil' weinies!!!!

LOOK AT THOSE EYES OF THE DOGGIE EMBELLISHMENTS!!!  OMG!!!!!!!  They are SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!  I feel like the youngest girl in Despicable Me about her unicorns when I look at them!!!!

Look at how perfect the colour of paper is for me - this is the card against the wall of my craft room!!!!

I cannot say how much I love these cards and this paper!  She also included the template she used too - thank you Kathy - I completely forgot to do that - sometimes when I get into paper crafting, I get so caught up into it that I can easily forget everything else.  I will try to find the template I used and post a link to it later!

I love the use of the enamel dots too - I have to use them more myself!

From our fantastic organizer, Flygirl88 -

She said she had a perfect paper for me and she was totally right!  These dogs are cute and funny and also on the perfect colour of paper too!

First off, a great notecard - I have this stamp too and love how it looks embossed on the black paper - I am stealing this idea - it's very elegant looking!

Sorry, the pic was blurrier then I thought - but I love how this paper looks on the brown card stock, and the red accent is perfect.

They really are Super Dogs!

I really love the use of the red accents and I love the use of both angular cuts below and the use of the negative space - a great look!

Thanks to both my partners for such fantastic cards that suit me perfectly and for inspiration for my own paper crafting too!

2  The birches... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Onyxnox on: May 13, 2018 01:44:08 PM
This is the piece that I made for the 6x6" More Art, Less Craft swap... I was originally going to go with a more mixed media/collage piece, but I hit a blank after the initial texturing and base paint layer.  Then I went with what I love, birch trees....

This is a chunky 6x6" canvas - meaning it has a nice thick 1.5" wood frame, wrapped in canvas.  That means there is a nice niche in the back, which I took advantage of too.

Here is the front, painted with acrylics.  I wrapped the texture around to the back, and turned the back into a little dimensional winter woods scene.  I used die cut pieces, textured snow, and glitter for this little hidden scene.

This was a lot of fun to do - once I go over the mind blank.  I had actually prepped 4 canvases with different colours and styles... but ended going with what I loved each time - the colour I loved... then the subject I loved.

The moral of the story is to go with what you love...

More on my blog, with a huge tonne more of pics, if anyone is interested in more...

3  Grow... in Needlework: Completed Projects by Onyxnox on: May 12, 2018 06:18:59 PM

This is an embroidered patch I made recently for the enchanted forest swap.  I had some variegated green thread and used a pattern from Urban Threads to make the central image.  I backed it with some leaf fabric that was in my stash - it was a leftover swatch of fabric I loved that I actually used to cover some old chairs in my living room with - the chairs are gone, but I really loved that fabric.  To sew the edges together, I went with a wonky feathered chain stitch to give it the look of growing ivy vines.

More on my blog if anyone is interested

4  Another card for the moms... in Mother's Day by Onyxnox on: May 11, 2018 12:29:52 PM

This is this year's Mother's Day cards for our moms.  I went with a Queen's Anne lace stamp in a brown ink, tinted with water colours, and a metallic blue background.  I added a bit of vintage lace at the bottom.  I rather like how it turned out.  That is one of my favourite wildflowers - there was so much of it on our farm when I was a kid - wonder if my mom will notice that?

A few more details and pics on my blog if anyone is interested.

I think if you upload directly from the device, it will upload in the orientation you took the photo in, so if you can change the orientation in your device, or load it to a computer and change the orientation there, then upload it here, it will be straight.  On saying that, I love the colours and pattern of that poured piece - love that organic, flowing look.

I received from Loves2experiment and it is a gorgeous mixed media piece!  She went with lovely layers and there is a fantastic variety of text, and patterns so I see something different every time I look at it.  It has such lovely golden, warm amber tones, mixed with some lovely shades of blue - love love love - this will fit perfectly in my craft room.  Right now it is sitting in my window and the sun is making the amber tones glow like gold.  It wraps around the sides too - gorgeous!

Here is the card I made

I have to apologize... I received awhile ago, but I have been feeling so blah and low energy lately.  I expend it all at work, and by the time I get home, I have nothing left it seems.  I took pics, but it took me awhile to motivate myself to finding the cords, etc.

Anyways, I finally got around to it, and got around to transferring the pics.

I received from gala_apples, who obviously noticed my love of birds!

This is a pretty cool mobile - made of melted beads?  I am also super curious of the source of the metal for the bird focal - is it some reclaimed metal?

Super bright and colourful!

This is a really cute little mushroom stamp - so small and cute!

finally, this is a bird mixed media hoop for my hoopla wall - the birds are stamped/painted on, with stitched patterning all around - pretty cool!

Thanks gala_apples - hopefully your package arrives soon.  I tried a different shipping method this time, and it seems to take longer than the previous ways I used.

8  Re: Happy Mail Round 4 Gallery! (send out 3/26) in The Swap Gallery by Onyxnox on: April 06, 2018 04:44:25 PM
OMG - great happy mail gallery... it makes me so.... happy!

I got more mail happiness myself - from GoatGoddess...

The envelope... love the colours - metallics, blues, purples.

Inchie goodness - love the blue backgrounds and the birds!

Twinchie goodness!!!  Blue footed booby and red winged blackbirds!

A twinchie with decorated clothes pins - a twinchie base for me to decorate???  Maybe with a mini chickadee to match the other ones... or a puffin, they would look cute with the booby!

Decorated bottle caps - love the sparkly hearts and accents...

... and more mixed media - a larger 4x4 blue footed boobie - god they are funny looking birds!

Two of my favourites - snarky 4x4 art - these may have to go to work and hang out in my locker...  they pretty much embody my work mind... especially the first one... filtered down, it would be one of my work mottos on a bad day, which pretty much is, "I hate people".

thanks GoatGoddess - love it, especially the boobys... or would that be boobies?

I wanted to make some mixed media art panels lately... this is a 4x6 panel I made recently and sent to blupaisan for the Happy Mail swap.  It is 4x6" canvas board, decorated with a die cut and decorated chipboard heart and painted paper/vellum wings, and acrylic/fabric/gel medium/stenciling on the background, with a stamped sentiment...

More pics and some detail information on my blog if anyone is interested...
