1  Rat Pack Pop Art painting/reproduction - IMG HEAVY in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Hashbury77 on: March 30, 2008 05:01:38 PM
Hi All,

I have not posted in a long time, but wanted to share one of my recent finished projects. I am really sorry if it should not be in this forum, but I considered it more of an image reproduction than an actual painting b/c of the process used to create it. Please let me know if you feel it should be posted elsewhere.

I really needed/wanted a big piece of pop art to put over my couch - so I figured I would go ahead and paint one! My husband and I LOVE the Rat Pack and I really wanted something candid and fun. Anyway, I was really excited about the way it turned out and it fits into the style of the rest of the room really nice as well. I am hoping to redo it soon and fix Dean's face a little. I do not like the way the colors look on him as much as on Frank and Sammy.

Enjoy!! Thanks for looking.

Here is the process:

I found a picture that I liked and played around with it in Photoshop until I got down to manageable "pop art" shapes.

Orginal Picture

After working in Photoshop

After enlarging it and transferring it to the canvas via transfer paper. I started painting - basically like "Paint by numbers" at that point.

Work in Progress

Thanks again for looking!!  Have a nice day!  Smiley

2  Mod Podge Screened goodies - IMG HEAVY in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by Hashbury77 on: March 18, 2007 02:43:58 PM
I wanted to get something really cool for one of my best friends sister who just had a baby. Since my friend is a rock star or at least plans on marrying one someday, I figured I would make her newborn nephew some cool threads to hang out with her in.

I looked around on the internet and found some ideas that I kind of liked and modified them and came up with some of my own stuff. All in all I am pretty happy with the way the present turned out. 

This one is an iron on transfer, but I thought it turned out cute too. This is a picture of their dog.

Also, it was my friend's birthday so I screened her two shirts as well.


Arrested Development anyone?

Thanks for looking!  Grin

My partner recieved her package. Whoo!!  Grin I will go ahead and post pics of what I sent to her.

A carrot pillow for her bun and a ball for her bun to throw around. Two rabbit buddies.

Some sassy earrings and stitch markers.

Some bunny slippers.

BTW - she said that her favorite color was purple so I went a little overboard with it!!

Oooh, Super cute! Really cool design.
I actually really like it strapless. I do like the idea of a small applique. Or you could do some neat contrast stitching on the bodice in a lighter blue to kind of bring in the lighter portions of the piece like so....

Excuse the messy sketch. I love your design, definitely let us know what you do!! Good luck with your portfolio!   Grin

I have not started yet. I have several ideas but am trying to make my decisions before I go buy anything. I tend to get into trouble if I wing it!!   Wink

This is going to be a lot of fun!!   Grin Anyone up for posting a pic or two of their little animals? I do not want to take up a ton of space on the board, but it might be nice to see all of our inspirations!!  =)

I will start.

Everyone meet BOBO THE BEAR!!

Ok, I finally got my camera back. Here is the stuff that I sent cumber 1137. I am glad you like it!! Feel free to post your own pics too, mine are not all that great.

Dharma fishbiscuit pin cushion and Dharma logo pins.

Vincent change purse and numbers wrist cuff. She said that one of her favorite characters was Vincent, so I could not pass up this fabric. My husband thought I was crazy, but I think it looks a lot like Vincent.  Grin

Dharma logo crochet hook roll up. This is the back.

And the inside.

And a shirt.

This was so much fun. I can not wait until Lost returns - this swap really helped pass the time during the break.

Here are my awesome Lost goodies.  Grin There was a nice little inventory note with a cute stamp on the front of it.

I got a pillow with the numbers on it.

A really cool Dharma Logo necklace. It really is not that blurry but I can't seem to get a good pic from my camera of it.

And some address labels with the Dharma logo, which you can kind of see in the first picture.

Thanks again cumber1137. This was my first swap and I am glad that it turned out so well. I can not wait to see everyone else's stuff!!!

Thanks!!!  Grin

8  Men's Dress Shirt - recon ***Now with fancy pants tute***(very img obese) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Hashbury77 on: November 11, 2006 06:15:00 PM
Hi all!

Recently my hubby decided to get rid of some of his dress shirts, so I commandeered them to make myself some much needed work shirts.

Here is the first of a few dress shirt recons. Let me know what you think.

Before - Forgot to take a picture of the actual shirt but was the same size as this one.

Finished Product



Action shot - it really does look better than this, but hubby was laying down when he took this pic which = bad angle for me!

Thanks for looking!!   Grin

Thank you everyone for all of your great comments. I have been working on a tute as promised. There are a lot of steps to it, so be patient it is not too hard. And I apologize for the extremely long tute, this is my first one so let me know if you have any questions, comments, or problems with it. I compiled them onto a couple of "pages" so I would not be uploading a billion pics.

Here goes....

And here are some links for sewing in sleeves:



I would LOVE to see pics if anybody does this! Post em if you got em!!  Grin

9  First Post - Barbie Wedding Present in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Hashbury77 on: November 04, 2006 12:01:54 PM
HI Everyone,

I have been working on this wedding present for my best friend and I was really excited about how it turned out so I thought I would share.

I wanted to make her a replica of her wedding dress on a Barbie. I think it might be something cool to have next to her wedding photos - kind of like displaying her dress all the time.

My disclaimer is that this is the first attempt ever at Barbie clothing - I have seen pictures of people who do amazing things - this is not one of those.

Let me know what you think. I have included pics of the Barbie as well as some detail shots of her dress. Pay no attention to my careless censoring of her face!  Wink

Thanks for looking!  

Barbie - full dress

Bride - holding Barbie (...weird...)

Barbie - Front Closeup

Bride - Front Closeup

Barbie - Train

Bride - Train

Wow, what a great topic. Everyone's pics are so great!

In case my pic does not work, allow me to explain. My close friend is a free-lance makeup artist (lucky me Smiley). And her gift to me was to do my makeup for my wedding. Awesome gift, huge stress reliever! One of the many themes running through my wedding was peacock feathers. So she did a little fancy gold, green and dark teal eyeliner on my eye to match. She rocks!   Grin

I apologize that the pic is not the best, and hopefully I can get it to work. Thanks for looking!
