1  Mermaid Tote in Stenciling: Completed Projects by gala_apples on: February 18, 2018 08:16:15 PM
I made this for Onyxnox in the Fairytale swap. I read the Hans Christensen tale a few times, but it doesn't specifically mention what the youngest mermaid looks like, so I went with colours I liked together.

The bag is actually a sea foam green, you can see it in the aura around the mermaid. I did indeed add handles, one I took the picture. And it's a biiig bag, the box you see inside it is a jumbo Rice Krispie box.

2  Heart Shrine in Completed Projects by gala_apples on: February 18, 2018 04:24:59 PM
I'm not putting this on the 'occasions' board for Valentine's day, because I hope that it's something that can be up all year. I tried to be relatively generic, but stay on the love theme.

It's my first time experimenting with painting on top of hot glue, and I like the effect. It wouldn't work for deeper shrines, but this one was only about an inch deep, so it's very readable.

The back of the shrine has a little inlay, which I filled with a pretty heart themed paper.

dfabbric made me the best TM Patches! Either they're machine embroidered, or she's a freakin' witch!

A mask. It also has a nosepeice, but I haven't had the chance to glue them together yet.

Oh dear children, do come in. No harm will happen to you...

Rapunzel Rapunzel, let down your hair! She let her hair fall...

I got a pouch from craftylittlemonkey made out of three TM Patches. It's hard to say which side I like better, because on one hand, the quote, but on the other hand, YELLOW!

7  Glasses! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by gala_apples on: January 13, 2018 10:49:51 PM
I started with this piece of fabric:

Well, not actually a piece of full fabric. I found the front and back of a cut out but not sewn tanktop in this fabric. I immediately got an idea of a shirt with a glasses print all over it, and that fabric as the sleeve. So I made a glasses "stamp" out of foam paper and spent hours coating the stamp in paint and pressing it down again and again.

When I finally went to sew on the sleeves, they looked too dissimilar from the body (too much pink, I think) so I striped the sleeves with the other colours in the original scrap, then sewed it together.

The upper sleeve fabric has the sponge pattern in periwinkle blue, green, purple, and pink. The glasses I stamped were periwinkle blue, green, purple, but also black, white, and fuschia (you can't print blush pink on baby pink).

Anyway, it's the first thing I've made this year, and I really like it  Cheesy

Thanate and I did a private swap with the items from our lists, so I ended up getting two embroidered peices:

They'll both be TM Patches, sooner or later  Smiley
