21  Re: Cold Feet and 20 minutes of time.... Tutorial in Crochet: Completed Projects by Paperdaisies on: April 01, 2007 12:38:10 AM
I just had to share pics. This is the first time I've ever followed a pattern and my second time completing something crocheted (although the first was a scarf entirely done in hdc...pretty simple!) Anyway, I apologise for the crummy pics, I had to resort to using a phone camera because a friend has borrowed our good camera...

I planned on making some big chunky red ones but I ran out of yarn halfway through the second slipper. I have made lots of mistakes but I love them anyway. I didn't really know how to join rows so I made it up (and I wasn't very consistent with my mistakes Cheesy )

Then I was so excited I had to make another but the only yarn I had was some crappy black and white stuff...

Hehe, thanks so much for the pattern! I had heaps of fun learning all this new stuff! It's a huge learning curve...I'm getting there slowly...

22  Re: How to get "shading" effect on felt? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by Paperdaisies on: March 29, 2007 07:17:42 PM
I have used soft pastels to shade felt...it works well, but I'm not sure it would be really permanent.

Here is a picture or two...his cheeks are done with a pale pink pastel.

The aqua here is pastel too...

23  Paperdaisies' very own ATC gallery! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Paperdaisies on: March 29, 2007 06:39:29 PM
So I caved. I decided I wanted to have a place to share all the ATCs I have made. I hope you all don't mind that I am adding yet another ATC gallery! I have other cards posted in the 100 Themes Gallery, I'm not sure if I should post them here too. So for now we will have cards not made for the 100 Theme Challenge. You've probably seen a few of them before...

So, here is my first ever ATC. Skull Squiggles


Here are some I did just for fun...

Here are two that I made for a swap on another site. I am making 7 more in a similar style (most of them are waiting to be coloured...)

So what do you think? Do you want to see more? Cheesy

That cozy is adorable! I like his face and the earphone cord hole thingy! I like the colours a lot too!!

Well, I have been holding back on you guys...I've been playing with felt a lot lately...but its been for swaps. My partner received them a while ago but I forgot to share the pics..

Here is a Dia De Los Muertos skull ornament I made...

And here is a little Moogle plushie...

I also machine appliqued a Dark Mark onto a fleece cushion cover I made...this was really frustrating...

And my favourite, although not made completely from felt...a big fleecy black bear with a felt appliqued skeleton and face! He's pictured here with all his friends and a felt scarf I made for him too...(he was from my parnters wists, so it's not completely my design) and a little badge as well...

Phew...sorry to post so many pictures but I really wanted to share! So enjoy!!

25  Tiger bunny wreaking havoc!! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Paperdaisies on: March 23, 2007 07:22:18 AM
So I hadn't made anything for me lately cos I've been doing lots of stuffies for swaps! And I wanted to use some of the fabric from my fabric chest...so I came up with this little psycho...I didn't come up with a cool name...so for now he is Tiger Bunny!

Tiger Bunny wouldn't sit still for a portrait so I chased him around the house while he was doing his crazy stuff...

In true craftster style Tiger Bunny likes running with scissors...although I'm not so sure about having those sharp scissors around those power cords...

The next time I ran into him I found him grinning evilly inside the new computer!! This was a close call...

He's not all bad...he gave me a flower! ...but I was a little suspicious due to his grin...but he just looked too cute!

...and in true Aussie style, I found him hiding in the fridge ready to gobble up all the yummy vegemite! Grin

Little (cute) terror Tiger bunny is handsewn out of cotton and filled with polyfill and I made his face out of felt and I embroidered his mouth...and I have to admit, his eyes are just pins...I am going to buy some eyes...or black beads tomorrow. I have to admit, I prefer working with felt but I love the tiger print, next time, I'll use a sewing machine! But I was excited and I took some pictures in between episodes of Family Guy. Tiger Bunny is watching very attentively (probably taking lessons from Stewie!)


Comments, criticism...laughs...all welcome!

Grin Love from Paperdaisies Cheesy

I received! I got the cutest little guy named Bubble from Eliea today!! He is a little baby moth. He has the cutes tlittle feet and little removeable shrinky dink (?) wings that I can use as a pin wherever I want! Such a cool idea! And he has cute little beads on his back and a button on his butt! And Eliea mademe an adroable little zippered crocheted purse with my craftster initials on it!
Here is the purse, it's so neat! And you can see little Bubble and his adorable beads and wings!

Here is a sideview of Bubble so you can see his cute little smile...

And here are his gorgeous little feet! I love his feet!!

And here is his bio,

Thank you so much Eliea!! Bubble is so cute! This swap has been so fun! Cheesy:D:D

Wow, MO! The colours are so beautiful! I don't really 'get' zetty...but they sure look nice!

Doing a few cards for the 100 themes challenge inspired me to do some ATCs not as part of the challenge...I call them Ladyfaces and Manfaces.
Ladyface Autumn

Aztec Manface

Ladyface Dotty Doll

Boy am I creative with names! Cheesy I am thinking of starting a gallery thread for my ATCs...but I'm not sure...

Wow, I love this gallery! Everyone is so creative and your cards make me happy!

Ambo, that card...reminds me of Kill Bill. Teeheh, is that a picture of someone you know? ...I wouldn't want to ever get on your wrong side!  Grin

Anyway, I did another...now I've done 9!! Yay! This one is 'Seeking Solace', number 5. I hate that grey bird. I drew tis in about 5 minutes last night before I went to sleep and coloured it today. A relaxing card for me. This is where I wish I was right now...

That innocence card is beautiful jan_on_ice! I really like the orchids!!

I am on an ATC roll at the moment, tonight I did 3! Only one was for this challenge though...I did 'Happiness' (no. 29). It was based on another picture I've done here http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/36930259/?qo=5&q=by%3Apaperdaisies&qh=sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps....and I like the original far more!

I did another one, this one is a very personal one. It's 'Sacrifice' which is number 57. I apologise if it's a little gory.
