I scanned in another that I forgot I drew. I did this one over my last christmas break...his name is Adair and he was heavily inspired by a 'Commando' comic called 'Terror in the Sky'.

It's just a fine point black pen on some lovely watercolour paper I found. I really didn't want to colour it. What do you all think?

...I don't think I'll be pumping out many cards soon...I have 7 exams to get through first... Embarrassed

12  Re: Little Visitor Round 7 (Signups May 23 to June 6) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Paperdaisies on: June 02, 2007 09:41:16 PM
I got a new camera for my birthday TODAY so I just needed to have a little photoshoot with my bubba...who I decided to name Nae Nae (short for Nairne, 'from the river' in scottish gaelic). She loves treasure and is quite a girly creature when you get to know her (despite appearances to the contrary!). She might just dress up a bit for her travels though!

Without further adieu...

...I made her a little while ago and posted her on Craftster under the tentative name of 'Skeleton Bear'...I like Nairne better...Cheesy I'm gonna miss her! Now I should make her a little profile...or maybe a passport.

Nae Nae's been looking at all the other critters pics with excitement...she can't wait! Everyone looks so cool and different!

ps. I used to have that hamburger transformer...and a large fries one and a milkshake one. Those were favourites in our family!!

13  A little skeleton bear!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Paperdaisies on: May 21, 2007 02:50:36 AM
I hadn't posted anything in a while...and then I decided to post this little guy I made a while ago. He's not actually finished - I cut out little arm & leg bones for him but I haven't sewn them on. But you get the idea. He's based on Baby London Star's pattern http://members.shaw.ca/plushie/moogle/ there but I omitted all the moogly bits Cheesy. I have made the moogle before and he turned out quite cute. Anyway, I recommend that pattern to everyone.

He's all handsewn felt with little jointed arms and legs. The photography isn't stunning and I apologise, nothing beats real sunlight - but it's night and I have to make do with a flash. Sad

But anyway, what do you think? I was thinking of making my own little bear/cat/rabbit pattern so I could make up my own little skeleton creatures to sell one day. I hope to have an etsy shop one day...but for now I will make things at my leisure! I could even turn a few of them in day of the dead style creatures like the big one I made for a swap once...http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/54107236/?qo=4&q=by%3Apaperdaisies&qh=sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps but obviously a lot smaller.

Haha, sorry, I got a case of the rambles...I'd love to hear what you all think!

ps. I know, his ears are pointy like a kitty. But I maintain that he is a bear. Cheesy

I have made a few more cards...yay! These are in a different style...yet again. I can't seem to stick with one style...I flit & flut like a little nuerotic butterfly between themes & ideas.

Here is a pastel card I made. I'm not particularly happy with it, it's a very boring design - I just sorta made it up on the spot. I like looking at it though, I love the layers you can create with pastels...

"Pastel experiment - leaves" -traded
And here we have a card that was inspired by a painting I found in an art instruction book. I changed the composition & colours a little & I'm generally happy with it...

"Village & fields" -traded
And lastly, another one inspired my a painting from the same book. Same composition, different medium, colours & style.

"Yellow & purple still life" -traded

What do you think?

I FINALLY DID ANOTHER...well, actually, my brother finished the ATC for me. I had inked up a card for 'cat' aaaages ago, but I didn't really like it....so I let my brother colour it for me! He's a great drawer too. I love the way he interpreted the colour and added the little people for scale.

Now I've done...11? I think. And 'Cat' is finally out of the way!

(I've been busy completing 9 cards for a swap on atcards.com...check 'em out here...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160944.msg1677368#msg1677368

Even if I haven't been making many cards for this challenge, I'm still looking at all the awesome cards with glee! Grin

ps. I just remembered that the colours are a little off...they look more intense...and better in person. I forgot to tell you all that my brother called it 'The Land of the Saccharine Cats'.  Grin

I completed all nine of my 'Mustard' cards for a hand drawn/hand painted swap on atcards.com!! I'm proud of myself!! My sister helped to colour two of them...thanks Zoe! (Right now, my older brother and my younger sister are contentedly colouring in their own ATCs! I converted them!!)

Here is a tiny group shot...does it look mustard-y enough?

Now for large shots of all of those that I haven't posted before...
1 & 2 are in my first post...

5 6

7 8


So there you have it! More cards from me! Tell me what you think of them!! Cheesy I'm loving ATCs at the moment....the other day I checked the mail and there were 5 cards waiting for me! It made me so happy!!! Cheesy Grin

Ok, you convinced me...

Here is a platypus card I made for Minagi...

I'm wondering...i've been drawing some quick pictures in photoshop and I have a feeling they might be ATC dimensions...
Here is one...

This is one is my favourite...

I have been really stuck for time for any crafting lately. I apologise for the lack of activity in my gallery...please enjoy this stuff...there should be more one day...

Time for some pictures of my bird themed parcel from ambraqi...

The first thing I saw in the parcel was this box...and inside it there was a gorgeous little birdie brooch

AND also in the box was this gorgeous birdie and branch mobile!

and then there was another beautiful mobile made of cute squishy knitted birdies of blue and green...

Here is a closeup of one of the birds and the bell hanging from the bottom!

And what's more...ambraqi tells me that there is more to come!
Thanks so much Ambraqi! I've already hung the two mobiles in my bedroom and my sister (who I share my bedroom with) approves! Cheesy

I have been itching to share the stuffy I made for the Felt Mascot/Little Stuffy swap R2...my partner, Eliea, had a character she had designed (here is a link to the picture I worked from http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/35845604/?qo=1&q=by%3Aeliea&qh=boost%3Apopular+-in%3Ascraps)and I made it in plushie form for her!

So here we have Flix the magical ferret!

The construction design was done by me from scratch! I am pretty proud of this little bubba...but all the character design kudos go to Eliea.

(completely handsewn...)

I have admired all these gorgeous blankets from afar (I think the first one I saw was on someone's wists...I was hooked!) but I only just recently learnt how to read a pattern...so my second project from a pattern, had to be this one. I had to learn some of the stitches and techniques for the first time!

I only have gross old yarn at the moment (I'm a new crocheter...and I am but a poor student!) so I did this as a practice round...I didn't weave the ends in either, I'm not that advanced yet...and I want to ask my mum's opinion...

I plan on doing a crazy bright rainbow afghan with black between all the coloured stripes. It's not going to happen for a little while. I also want to use thicker yarn and maybe a smaller hook so the holes aren't quite so big...or use doubled up yarn. I'm not sure yet...
