1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine Planter? on: June 26, 2009 01:03:55 PM
I haven't posted any of my projects here. I usually just lurk and gawk at everyone elses amazing work, but anyways...I saw someone else create a waste basket out of magazines and I thought I'd give it a try since I have the summer off and its quiet.

The end product ended up being more than likely something that would fit a house plant.
It looks smaller than it actually is in the pictures. It's about 12" in diameter and could easily fit one of those palm tree house plants. In its pot of course since its not water proof Smiley

anyways, on to the pictures

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about Graphic Design work on: June 24, 2009 01:08:20 PM
Im going completely online to a community college in my area for Graphic Design. I originally started a degree in 2001, but then left college to work/move out/be an adult. But now im going to go finish the degree. None of my credits from the old college transfer because they are so old, but thats actually good cause I really dont remember a lot of what I learned so it will be good to have a refresher. If you really want to go into it and if you have complications such as work or disability that dont allow you to physically go to a classroom or if you're like me and just learn better on your own without all the "bla bla bla" lectures then check in your state for community colleges that offer online degrees. I just googled "washington state online degrees". Do NOT go to out of state colleges like University of Phoenix because you will pay 3-4x as much for their online programs. My entire degree will be around $10k with books maybe a little more if I dont get the books used where when I looked into art institute and UoPhoenix it was around $30-40k for a degree through them.

My 2 year degree at my local college will take 1.5years or a little more depending how many courses I decide to take per quarter. 2 years at the most. The certificate is 1 year. and if you go to an in state college you recieve the state resident discount. so for me its around $80/ credit hr for online credits which are a little more than going to a brick and mortar college. for someone who went from out of state it would be around $110/credit hr for the classes. most classes are 5 credit hours.

SLR's are totally worth the investment. I find that having the flexibility to change my gear set up is great. Even if for now you only see yourself with a few lenses...you may find great interest and want to invest in more later down the line. SLR's are the way to go for that. Also, if you're shooting mostly macro and close up still life type photos then SLR's are also great because you can get a broad range of macro lenses as well as macro attatchments based on your specific needs unlike if you got a point and shoot where you dont have that choice.

I prefer Nikons myself over Canons. I have a D70 which is a little older body and therefore cheaper if you buy used. I got mine on ebay for $450 with 2 lenses, 2 batteries, 2 Compact Flash Cards, 2 lens hoods, a macro attachment and filters and a camera bag. It was a good deal. Also craigslist would be another good place to look for a deal on them since people are struggling with the economy A LOT of people are willing to barter down the price for quick cash for bills ect.

9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / picture frames?!?! on: July 18, 2008 06:11:48 PM
 Huh Huh Huh
I dont know if this is the right spot for this but I'll give it a shot. its sort of Backwards from what this forum is for.

I need something that I can make a picture frame OUT of. aside from wood and the obvious old picture frame.

what can i use?

any tutorials around for using recycled objects to make a frame out of.

reason being, I made my boyfriend a picture and he's been out of town for 7 days and comes back home tomorrow. I want to frame the picture nicely instead of handing him a piece of paper. but Ive searched high and low in my house and my creative brain isnt working well enough to figure out something that could become a picture frame.

give me some ideas, ladies (and gents if there is any Smiley ) Undecided Undecided
