1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Bella and Jacob Twilight T-shirt on: October 16, 2009 01:26:56 PM
A few weeks ago my 4 color silver press arrived.  Have had quite a time in getting all the little bits and pieces together for making the process run smoothly.  (getting the right printer for the films, buying a pressure washer, getting the little adjustments right, and remembering important steps lol) 

So last night the daughter and I did a quickie design (think we could have done better on the art but regardless)  I decided we were printing no matter what we did lol.

She wanted a Jacob and bella shirt to wear to the movie in about a month.  Not going to bore you with a ton of details but thought I would share the results (there are more photos and lots more details in the blog link here http://cohesivechaos.com/2009/10/the-monster-in-my-dining-room/

I'll try to get a photo of her actually wearing it so that you can see the print better later when she's home from school.  Opinions and thoughts greatly appreciated
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Son's of Anarchy swap? on: September 28, 2009 01:10:59 PM
I really have no desire to organize anything but want to throw this out there into the pool of wonderful ideas - Any interest in a Son's of Anarchy themed swap? 

It's an amazing show, so well thought out, wonderful characters and complex story lines - albeit possibly a bit on the touchy or dark side of things But you've got guns - motorcycles - bikers - porn stars - doctors - FBI - mayhem and more - the ideas for potential crafting are quite deep.

If you've not seen it the first season is just now available on DVD (and for netflix users you can watch it online) and the 2nd season is on the 4th episode tomorrow night Comes on FX tuesday nights 10pm (at least in the pacific time zone) 

I'd most likely want to participate just don't know I can wrap my head around organizing right now. 
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Tiny Octopus Lamp on: September 24, 2009 02:50:46 PM
I have about 5 minutes before I have to leave to pick up the kids from school but wanted to get this up before I go, just finished it and I'm real pleased (I'd posted last night for opinions on coloring the octopus)

So just to update a little - it's made with crayola model magic and the only 'tool' I used is a toothpick.  It took about 30 hours in total to make.

more details and images on my blog - http://cohesivechaos.com/2009/09/octopus-lamp/

Opinions greatly appreciated!

4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / need suggestions on what color to use next on: September 23, 2009 09:20:22 PM
I've been working non stop on this for a bit and am to a 'point' where I have to make a decision, I need to determine what color scheme to do for my octopus, I've included a few up close shots of bits of this it's rather tiny and I'm still adding color and blending a bit but could definitely use some input before I go much further
Last shot is with a double A battery just to show the scale.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A fabric vase on: September 19, 2009 07:31:41 PM
I made this fabric vase for a container for the jar of whimsies swap, and since my partner received I figure I can show it off a little Smiley  My partner is pretty green so I made this using scrap pieces of fabric and timtex to make a vase, I liked it with the raw edges I thought it added to the overall feel of it.  It's 5 sided and forms a 'star' opening which I thought was super fun Smiley Would love your opinions and/or thoughts Smiley

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A few multi media pieces on: September 03, 2009 09:29:38 PM
I was bored one morning (or procrastinating over cleaning off the table) and decided to toy around and make some things with the stuff I was meant to be putting up, the following is the result of that.  They incorporate lots of stuff into them clay resin ink pigment etc... And I've listed them in order of how much I like them lol.  They are very different from what I normally do but I quite love them.  Now just to decide if I am the kind of girl that can get away with wearing them. Thoughts and opinions most appreciated!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Gunmetal Waterfall Necklace on: August 04, 2009 05:30:00 PM
I had to enlist the help of my daughter to get a photo of this one.  And of course she ran her finger down the lens of my camera leaving a smudge, I'll attempt later to get a different photo of it without the smeary blur down the center.

It's made with gunmetal components, Magnesite and glass.  I think it's rather beautiful but would love to hear your thoughts/opinions.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A simple shirt on: August 03, 2009 06:07:12 PM
I didn't mod the fit of the shirt at all, but I had to applique the skull and get back to my roots.  I used this skull on an evening gown recently (waiting for the opportunity to get good photos of it but need help with that)

This shot shows the colors a bit more true than the next but it's really somewhere between this and the next

and the full shirt

Planning on another tonight in different colors I think.  Would love comments,etc....
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tons of Resin Pendants (a lil pic chubby) on: July 24, 2009 07:53:43 PM
It's been a while since I sat down and played with resin.  I love it as an art form as there is so much space in such a little space to express creativity.  

A miriad of stuff went into each pendant to give them the look they have, I hope you'll enjoy viewing them.  Comments and such appreciated (they feed the creative monster inside, lol)

Probably one of my favorites I love the stark contrasts present.

Words to live by we should all try this I think Smiley

Wish you were here postage style cancellation in heart.  

Believe in the Dragonfly I love the colors here especially.

These were liberating pieces I took my poetry and cut it up and divided it between a number of different hearts.

Time for love I like how this one appears to be melting up Smiley

Additional pendants (I liked the lighting I got better in the pre finished stages) can be seen in this blog post:  Fresh from the molds

I have a few more pieces I'm working on now that are inspired by collage pages I've seen over the years will post them possibly after they are done Smiley
Thanks for looking!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skull Punk Applique purse and 2 wallets on: July 13, 2009 07:26:06 PM
I am trying hard to bust my stash down to a more reasonable level (so that I can justify buying new stash lol)

here is one purse I've finished and 2 little wallets

Two wallets loosely based off a tutorial I saw on here though I decided to use piping and turn them rather than bind them and use snaps instead of velcro.  also did my own size but essentially the shape of the flap is based off the video tute I saw (is in spanish I'll add a link in a bit)  did these to use up other bits of random fabric scraps I had laying on the table and some iron on appliques I've had for ages

and a little zippered pouch I made with the remaining scraps after making the wallets trying hard to make them zero waste projects so it's asymetrical to fit the pieces I had
