1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Big Eyed Birds set free out into the world on: March 18, 2009 08:46:10 AM
One of my paper mached birds from this swap finally arrived at his new home and it was suggested that he get his own post.
This is the gallery thread for that swap.

Here are a couple shots I did of Karl before I sent him on his way.

These two guys were a previous swap incarnation of the IYP swap as well.

They are all done in the same manner. Paper mache on a newspaper base with lamp components.

Sorry about the size on these, I did resize but I don't think they liked it so well.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Big Eyed Bird Takes a Note on: January 20, 2008 09:24:15 AM
I wanted to make an entry for this challenge but was completely stumped as to what to make. I didn't start on this until late friday night. I worked on it all day yesterday when I was supposed to be doing other stuff...of course.

If there isn't enough sheet music on this to actually qualify I totally understand and have no problem with it. I'm really grateful that this challenge came along and got me off my butt to try something new.

My cheeky red big eyed bird.

The other side

Close up of the sheet music wings.

The title of the song, The Flying Hours,

A shot for size comparison. This is the color I used on him, a 2 oz bottle.

And in case anyone was wondering what on earth I used as a base. I don't know what it is but I have another one. I picked them up beacause they were cool, metal and rusted. What a great combination. I've had them for about 5 years and had no earthly idea what I was going to do with them. Man, I'm glad I hung onto them.

All the materials I used on this I already had including the big bag of celluclay that I never got around to playing with. It was my first time using it and I really enjoyed it. I had quite a few panicky moments on saturday when I woke up after finishing it the night before and it was still just as wet. 2 hours later baking in the oven and yay! (Barely fit too)

You looking at me?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My Inchies with Work In Progress shots. Updated photos May 4, 2008. on: December 22, 2007 11:23:21 AM
I blame this "trend following" squarely on the shoulders of Rackycoo.
If it weren't for her I wouldn't be up until the wee hours of the night working on "inchies".

I decided to show a work in progress on these and mind you, I've only got 14 "mostly" done but these pics show the full 88 squares from the 8 1/2"x11" sheet I started with.

This is the sheet with almost all the squares sketched in and some mostly done.
I'll go back and add some words to the majority of them when I get them all done and cut out.
I will also keep adding some more work in progress shots as this is highly amusing to me. LOL.  Grin

After much playing around on other stuff I finally got my Turkey finished.

He's a turkey of the world who enjoys reading, long walks on the pier, snuggling down on cold winter days with a cup of hot chocolate and getting his toe nails painted.

I present to you...Gobbler Zetti.
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Be an Artist or Clown (Graphic Warning) on: August 23, 2007 05:03:21 PM
Yeah, This is slightly graphic but the warning truly should have read "CLOWN warning" but I didn't want to tip anyone off that they were about to witness a full frontal clown picture. You know the type that keeps you awake for days, staring into your closet, waiting for the big bulbous red nose to peek around the corner...Okay, wait, I'm creeping myself out now, lol.

Fair warning though...

This is a scary clown...

Hit the back button now...

I apologize, I couldn't help myself...

Last chance...

This (these) card(s) were done using acrylics and prismacolor pencils. I couldn't get the darn clowns out of my head. I had so much fun making him though. It was like exercising some demons. Couple of friends at work think I'm a tad "touched" now though.
I did include one shot of the back sides of the cards though. I thought they fit well with the front and should be included.

I hope no one has terrible nightmares though... Grin.

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Twins on: June 23, 2007 07:18:00 PM
I finally managed to finish my entry in this months challenge.
This image is of my Uncle Robert and my Aunt Barbara. They aren't identical twins but they are twins. I adore this image and when this theme won I knew it was the one I had to use. I hope you enjoy it.

Needless to say, it is a little "fuzzy" and takes up a tad bit more space than a normal ATC card.
It was also a bit difficult to scan as it is also rather 3-d-ish.

Whew, here goes. This is the first time I've entered one of these and I'm particularly nervous.


These are hand drawn and colored/painted on gessoed cardboard with a section of wood from my mom's old pig barn from Idaho. That's actual moss on the board you see, not paint.

And apart.
