11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I know wristwarmers are old news but.. on: March 31, 2007 04:30:19 PM
..these are awesome! Grin

these are my first knitting project other than a scarf which was only more complicated by the addition of some sewing work. Fell in love with the yarn [the more colors i can cram into things the better- nature got it right with the rainbow!]: end of story.

where i seamed it it's kind of messy but i think it breaks things up a bit to add interest..
12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / oil painting: *updated* on: March 24, 2007 01:07:45 PM
so i was going to buy like 6 canvases and stick em all together to make a big one [for easier transport] but I could only afford 2 haha but that sets things up for a nice contast...anyway one of the panels is done, I'll post it all up once it's finished. Shame you can't see a lot of the detail..silly camera..I decided to take longer than one day on these so it turned out awesome Smiley

oh and it's oil paint which I forgot I love working with yay!

here's the finished piece!

aand a little detail:

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / winter indoor plant growing possible? on: February 04, 2007 09:33:25 PM
My apartment's amazingly dark and gets really no sun but I love plants so much and it gets so cold and snowy here I need some sort of green life to get me through the winter.........any advice for setting up a seed sprouting/plant growing contraption that uses artifical light? I know you need to use florescent light but I was looking at some information and getting confused, also I can't afford anything expensive, I'm a broke student Smiley so cheapest way out is best.
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / panties! (modeling&language) on: February 04, 2007 04:46:12 PM
hehe didn't want to shock anyone.... Wink

anyway I've tried making underwear but have determined that the talent to sew them lies beyond my capabilities and I can only hope that one day I find a genie and after wishing to be able to fly, pantie sewing ability will be granted.   But I still wanted to have cute stuff so I used fabric paint on store bought ones.... So in love with both of them! When I thought of the badass idea: seriously jumped up and down, it's perfect on pink hehe. It also has horns on the monster dude but my shirt covered it unfortunately.

15  CANADA / Quebec / places to buy sewing machine in Montreal? on: January 30, 2007 02:29:59 PM
I'm looking to buy a sewing machine but have only lived in Montreal for two years and have no clue where to go. Anyone have any ideas? Or could recommend a good Canadian website to buy it from? Thanks!!
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tatto-inspired painted hoodie on: January 28, 2007 01:16:40 PM
so I've been browsing through craftster and gotten so inspired by the painted/altered hoodies that I had to make my own! I've had the idea of making a shirt with a design like a tattoo backpiece on it for a while so I ran with it....err painted......acrylics with fabric medium  Smiley!  had to outline everything in white to make the design pop but I love it yay and haven't really taken it off for days hehehe..

who would have thought the bathroom would be the only place where I could get a decent pic?

a bit fuzzy..
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / pearl/ribbon/wire woven bracelet on: January 22, 2007 07:36:34 PM
i really like how soft this came out between the fake pearls and grey ribbon- nice because it's adjustable too!

18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / silkscreened blanket for my bed! on: January 22, 2007 06:49:38 PM
so this project took me quite a few nights with some severe heartache but in the end it turned out ok!   It's basically a white piece of fabric that i silkscreened on and then sewed onto black fleece [so warm!]  At first the entire background behind the white flower image was black but then the $@%# washer washed the paint out so I had to go back in with painted on designs. i can't wait to do another...maybe more freehand painted...definetly some pillowcases that match

my bed, the model:

19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / fruit! simple still life on: January 22, 2007 06:01:44 PM
so it's been 3 yrs since i've done a still life drawing...so out of practice....anyway, I'd like some critique! [pretty please]  Oh and the picture is slightly bigger than what's shown, all didn't fit on my scanner Smiley..and pastel doesn't scan well, ug.     thanks!

20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / anyone out there do scanner art? on: December 10, 2006 05:28:49 PM
once i've discovered that my scanner is my best friend i experimented a bit...works best in a completely dark room so you get the black background. the last one i made by dragging some pics along while it was scanning. Anyone else have pics they wish to share?
