1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Toe Socks? on: October 14, 2010 04:20:56 AM
Hello Smiley

I have a collection of Toe Socks that I want to make things with!

Cool story - my daughter and I wore matching outfits for Christmas for quite a few years and our outfits always included toe socks Smiley  I kept them all for the purpose of one day making them into things for my grandkids!  Well, I have a 2 yr old beautiful grandson and I've made him a monkey and a fish so far!

Any other ideas??

Thanks stillatthetop!

Yes, a focal point - good idea.  A friend of mine also suggested making the top of the sky darker.  I think I'll try both of those.

And would you believe this is actually an Alaska sunset??  This is an area close to the beach.  I live on the Kenai Peninsula for a while.  I thought it was interesting that, although alot of Alaska looks different than down here, the beaches looked pretty similar to other beaches in other places.

Thanks again!!

I'm not sure what the struggle is but this might need more work....I can't decide....

And I'm not sure what it might need anyway!

Constructive criticism is welcome  Smiley

The designs will go on 2 inch glass square tiles.  They're either interesting designs - like a swirly type of heart - or a few words with a small picture of something.

$50 an hour.... cool

I thought of another question  Smiley  How long does it take to get a degree??
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Question about Graphic Design work on: April 07, 2009 03:08:16 PM
I'm hoping I might be able to get some ideas from some of you who have worked in Graphic Design.  I haven't had the chance to go to school for Graphic Arts but if I could I would and maybe some day I will.

In the meantime, I have come across a wonderful opportunity that I'm really excited about.  A business owner that I'm doing some painting for is developing a new line and asked me to work up some drawings for the first set of 40 designs.  She said we'll discuss a rate of pay for my designing work then I'll also get paid for the painting of the designs.  She already has a price for the painting but not the design work.

So my question is - what would you think is a fair price to ask if, although my designs are of a quality high enough to be accepted, I don't have a degree in the field or any schooling?  Should I just let her set the price?  I really have no idea what a fair rate would be and I want to be fair to both of us.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!

Oh - just for the fun of it - you can find some of my fun creations here

It's Hagrid!

I now have little sheddings of brown fleece all over the house but it was worth it!

I couldn't decide if I should show pics of how I did the wig so if you wanna see, lemme know!

The rest of the costume is pretty easy to explain LOL

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / I found big Mi Tientes Paper! on: September 17, 2008 11:37:56 AM
So, I searched and looked and asked and shopped and finally found it!  I thought I'd share my find with any of you who use Canson Mi-Tientes and want to make big pics or maybe you make big pics and want another option for big paper!

This is a roll that measures 59"x11 yards and comes in black or white!


I actually called their 800 number because every place I've gone to has said that Canson doesn't make this any more.  When I called, they had 12 rolls of white and 6 rolls of black in stock and the woman said she doesn't see anything that says it's discontinued!

So, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping she and her computer are right!!

Let me know if it works for you and maybe post some pics!
