1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Stargazer - first painting in a while on: July 01, 2005 09:20:35 AM
i got some beautiful stargazer lillies from my now boyfriend back on Valentines day. since then they've been one of my favorite flowers, the colors are just so bright. so i googled a photograph of one and painted my version of it using acrylics and watercolors. it was the first painting i had done in a couple years, but i was very satisfied with the end result.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Interview With The Vampire recon and NES belt on: February 10, 2005 08:27:48 AM
I <3 Anne Rice, and love all of her books, well when i came across an XL Interview With The Vampire t-shirt on ebay, it had to be purchased ^^. I followed the tutorial on www.deborahmerlo.com for the recon t, and i love how it turned out. i didn't have a buckle to use for the lace shoulder strap, so i just made a regular strap and let excess length hang from the back.

yea, these are old news but i made one anyways Tongue
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / beaded cell phone charms-cute,cheap,fast, and easy ^^-new additions on: November 16, 2004 07:37:15 PM
my aunt bought me a cell phone charm earlier this year and i hadn't taken it off my phone till just recently. getting bored with my plain ol' black cloisenne charm, i went down to hobby lobby and bought some charms for about 50 cents a piece and some assorted beads. for mine i just use clear elastic cord and crimp beadsto secure both ends. they take about five minutes each to make.

the one on my phone is a seahorse ^^. there's also a fairy and two gummy bear beads that came off a bracelt that i've had since childhood.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / button up dress shirt into halter on: November 10, 2004 11:33:45 PM
i found this nice blue womens button up shirt at goodwill a few weeks ago and wanted to make a tube top out of it since it was too big for me to wear to work. well after cutting and sewing i was still having issues making the top of the bust fit firmly without too much tuggage on the buttons causing the much feared 'bra peepage' : \. well i found some pretty ribbon in my reserves and tacked it just along the front of the shirt so it pulls up right under my arms to form a halter. i like it a lot, i wish i had more to add to it, because it's got that cute sophisticated but girly feel to it.

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Run Dos Run! [my geeky stencil shirt] on: November 02, 2004 10:19:53 PM
i found some cheap t's on sale at Michaels craft store, and decided to stencil this shirt i've been wanting ^_^.

i used a fabric marker this time, and it worked out pretty good. i don't really care for the way the shirt fits, so i'll probably cut it up some, any suggestions guys??
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / camisol-like top from a bra on: October 14, 2004 09:14:21 PM
even though it's getting too cold to wear something like this, i decided to finish it and get it off my to-do list. the top is just a bra that was too cute to hide with the bottom half of a sheer two layer tank top sewed on. its really comfortable, but i'll probably just be wearing it to sleep in since it's a bit too revealing to wear out and about  Tongue

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stencil your gloves! ^_^ on: October 12, 2004 11:20:51 AM
i bought some 74 cent gloves from walmart last night since it's getting a lot cooler here in illinois. the poor things were just so plain and i was bored outa my gourd ^^. they sell some nice cardboard font stencils there too and they turned out not too shabby in my opinion. when i was done i decided they needed a little extra flare and some grip for when i drive, so i used glittery fabric paint mixed with glow in the dark paint to make grippy dots for the palms  Cheesy.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / *need advice* new top but what color?? on: September 29, 2004 12:52:06 AM
well i was given a bag full of clothes someone didn't want, really good stuff to mess around with and this zebra frock was tossed in there. it's a tanktop thats about a size too large for me. well i figured it would look cute if i cut it up and sewed a trendy bra to the top of it. here's where the problem comes in..i can't decide wich one : \. i really like them both, but i don't have enough fabric for two. i'd like to get ya'll's thoughts on this one ^^.

9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Recon Tinkerbell costume ^^ [you can fly!] on: September 25, 2004 10:26:47 PM
Well, for Halloween this year i had intended to use the costume i had pulled together last year, which was Velma from Scooby Doo. last Wednesday my cousin and i were browsing the local goodwill looking for silky nightgowns so she could make her own fairy costume like Eropunkish did here -> https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4708.0. well i found a lime green camisol and decided to be tinkerbell ^^. we had to do a lot of taking in on the sides [three inches], but it turned out great in my opinion.


-the straps were removed and replaced with clear plastic bra straps
-bottom cut in triangles and hemed.

-dyed regular white house slippers lime green
-balls were made from styrofoam balls, white glitter felt, and push pins; then sewed on

-regular funny colored childrens costume wings spray painted silver and detailed with iridescent glitter glue

doing a rough estimate the whole thing probably cost me about $20 to make. the cami itself was only three bucks, so most of the money just went on supplies ^^. *joygasm* can't wait for halloween parties   Cheesy
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / one shoulder top - halloween style ;) on: June 10, 2004 09:03:21 PM
i found a really cute kids halloween shirt at Goodwill a few weeks ago, and even though it fit funny i had to have it. well, the top wasn't inteded to turn out the way it has, it was actually supposed to be an off the shoulder t-shirt, but it just wasn't fitting me right. so while being retarded and messing around with it, it's now turned into this -

it's not totally finished, i'd just like to get some people's opinions before i lay the final stitches, so comments/suggestions greatly appreciated.
