21  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie Fairy wants to eat your braiiiinnnnnn!! on: October 01, 2009 06:14:39 AM
She's 6" scale, polymer clay over  a wire armature. the whole thing with base and wings is 6.5" tall. She is pretty gross,right? lol I took a ton more pix so I made a FLickr set http://www.flickr.com/photos/85466700@N00/sets/72157627301033274/ So, whatdya think?

22  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / 1st attemp at dog hoodie/fleece on: September 23, 2009 10:36:21 AM
Well, Buster seems to like it! I have some cuter fleece but thought i would use the plain for a trial run. Not perfect at all lol But it does look cute and it's not too thick or bulky.

It's a pullover with a little cut-out space below the hood for the leash to go through.

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Handmade Plantable Paper Christening Favors on: May 15, 2009 01:07:56 PM
I don't think I've ever posted in this section before but these were alot of fun. My brother and SIL needed something for Christening Favors and I suggested plantable paper "something" since it was about to be spring and it was something people might keep and use, not just chuck lol

Of course being a crafty chick I was all "I shall make the paper myself" and my bro and sil know we well enough to nod, smile and say "okie dokie" lol So, i got the blender on Freecycle, built a Mold and Deckle from screen and firring strips I got at Home Depot and got to work Smiley

I used a nice wildflower mix of seeds and i was particularly pleased that I used my junkmail and old bills to make into something pretty. I shredded them inthe shredder and added bits of pink and purple tissue paper to get the color I was after. 

I cut out 50 cross shapes and used a dab of glue to tack them to the cards. The cards are also upcyled from this massive pack of envelopes i got on clearance in a wharehouse store years ago. I liked the texture and color of the envelopes so I cut them to size with a paper cutter. The back of the card was printed with these instructions "Plant this cross and wildflowers will grow" but I didn't take a pic of the backs. Everyone seemed to like them and my bro and sil were happy Smiley I love learning new crafts and loved that it was also thrifty and recycled stuff - ok, here's the pix already!!

Finished favor:

Got the almonds ready to attach:

Here they are, assembly-line style, as we tacked the crosses to the cards

27  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Steampunk Fairy on: April 30, 2009 08:08:43 PM
She's about 6.5", polymer clay with metal wings. She is removable from her base, which ads about another inch to the overall height. She has a real watch gear on her belt and little brass keys on her keyring.

there are alot more pix here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/85466700@N00/sets/72157617444604619/
28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Alice in Wonderland "Curiouser and Curiouser..." on: April 16, 2009 03:02:12 PM
 `Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); `now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!' (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off). `Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears? I'm sure _I_ shan't be able! I shall be a great deal too far off to trouble myself about you: you must manage the best way you can; --but I must be kind to them,' thought Alice, `or perhaps they won't walk the way I want to go! Let me see: I'll give them a new pair of boots every Christmas.'

And she went on planning to herself how she would manage it. `They must go by the carrier,' she thought; `and how funny it'll seem, sending presents to one's own feet! And how odd the directions will look!


Oh dear, what nonsense I'm talking!'

Here is my newest figure, it's Alice in Wonderland. Her upper body, arms, head, legs and cake are polymer clay. I also used liquid Fimo (not TLS) to protect the inkjet print i used for the floor pattern. i used metal letter stamps for the words on the base
