1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My first portrait in a long time on: January 12, 2008 04:48:33 PM
It's been a while since I actually drew anything seriously. I used to draw portraits all the time but I'm not really into it anymore. My art teacher saw some of my old drawings and wanted me to enter one in a youth artist award thing so for the first time in a while, I took out the pencils and sketchpad and set to work.

So for my sake, can you guys guess who it is? My mind would feel so much better if people were able to recognize who it is!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Nature Spun? on: November 30, 2007 02:21:45 PM
Hey guys. I want to knit my mom the Henley Perfected from the winter IK and am thinking of using the sport weight version. Is it soft and does it wear well? Also would their worsted weight work well for a cabled vest for my dad? Or should I go with another yarn? If the two don't seem appropriate, other recommendations would be welcome! Even more if they're reasonably priced!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Will my fabric rip? on: January 05, 2007 11:49:36 AM
I'm making a patchwork tote bag to carry my books in during school. 9 of the 25 squares were made out of a kind of thin blouse material. I'm afraid that the squares aren't going to be strong enough for all of my books. What do you think? Am I going to need interfacing or will it be ok?
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Textile Medium question on: November 30, 2006 11:30:14 AM
I've been stenciling for a while using just plain acrylic paint with nothing mixed into it. Now I've decided to use some textile medium too after reading posts here about it. I just have two questions.

1. How much of each should I mix?

2. I read a tutorial at Stencilrevolution that the medium could become sticky. I've used fabric paper and waited until the paint dried before peeling it off. Can I still do the same thing without having the freezer paper stick to the pain/medium? or no?

Any answers would me much appreciated.

I finally got smart and made myself a tshirt of my favorite band. What do you think?

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first bags! (IMG heavy) on: November 19, 2006 01:40:31 PM
I made these for my friends for Christmas. I made them using the jordy tutorial. Since I don't have a sewing machine, I had to hand sew them. Let me tell you, it's not fun.

This is for my friend, Nicole. She obviously likes Chiodos.

And this is for my friend Taylor. I stenciled her face on it and it was my first time using the freezer paper method. Needless to say, I was happy with the results. In the photos, it looks like the color is a lime green but it's actually duller (for lack of a better word).

What do you think? Comments would be much appreciated.
