1  My first 66 yards! (WIP) in Spinning: Completed Projects by darkdaughter on: February 07, 2008 04:52:54 PM
I just started spinning with a drop spindle, and am so excited that I just had to share! The colors are much brighter IRL, but I can't seem to find my digital camera. I've been very ill this past week and a half, so it has been nice to have something so low impact to keep me busy when my fever has been down. I only made 66 yards because that was all my spindle would hold. I'm currently spinning more that I plan to attach. Since I started experimenting more towards the end, adding angelina to the mix and some bits of metallic and neon embroidery floss, I plan on self plying so that it has glitz and fun stuff all through it. It is mostly merino wool with some bamboo. Anyhow, here's the crappy picture:

2  Cameo Shadow Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by darkdaughter on: December 26, 2007 01:15:02 PM
I made this for my grandma for Christmas. She recently remodeled her guest bathroom (by herself ... she's so badass), so I wanted to make her something that she could put in there. I haven't lived with her in over three years, but when I did, that bathroom was mine. She lives four hours away, but since I know the bathroom (and her tastes) well, I figured I could make something. She kept the original tile in the shower, so I tried to match the color of the box to the trim tile by memory. When she unwrapped it, I checked ... it matched, perfectly. I was pretty proud of myself, hehe.

Anyway, she likes cameo jewelry a lot. Her house is pretty much mixed styles, but it all says cozy and chic. She likes antique and country style things.

So, here it is.

So easy. Felt and a dollar store shadowbox with a couple coats of paint.

3  Ornaments (don't peek, ThatDarnPunk!) img heavy in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by darkdaughter on: December 26, 2007 01:03:59 PM
I made these snowflakes for the Nov/Dec Birthday swap. She hasn't recieved them yet, but I need to post them. So, hopefully she isn't peeking!

4  Stash Jar in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by darkdaughter on: December 26, 2007 12:58:56 PM
I made this for a friend for her birthday. The centers of the circles are translucent and you can see glitter through it. The next ring is glow-in-the-dark, and they outer ring is her favorite color ... bright orange!

5  Tons and tons of wooden pendants. (img heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by darkdaughter on: December 26, 2007 12:56:55 PM
Most of these don't have holes drilled yet in the pictures. All are handpainted.

This one has a slight shimmer in the black and pink paint. The sides and back are pink.

My favorite color Smiley One of the greens is metallic.

The green one and it's black/grey buddy.

My favorite one. I was too excited about this one to wait for a photo so the sealer isn't quite dry ... that's why it looks kind of milky. The sides and back are painted that fabulous metallic turquoise.

Cherry blossoms with a crackle finish. A bit blurry. Black rubbed into the cracks. The sides and back are painted black with loads of red glitter on top. Kind of a reversible one, I guess.

Here's the back. Blurry.

More cherry blossoms with crackle. Pink this time. and I rubbed pearl into the cracks and painted the back pearl.

I don't know if I like this one. Maybe smaller rhinestones would look better.

I just really like that turquoise. And glitter. I like glitter.

I felt like making sweet and pastel. So this is it.

The heart is glitter. Mmmmm ... glitter.

Just because I really like the sugar skull ones. They took me the longest.

6  A Rose By Any Other Name ... (+more [img obese]) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by darkdaughter on: November 28, 2007 02:12:55 PM
These are all destined to be pendants. When they are reborn into necklaces, I'll add a link here to their post on the Jewelry forum. For now, though:

Half-assed faux jade. I can do better, but didn't feel like it ... lol. :

Metallic Blue:

Metallic blue and coppery-gold:

Metallic red:

Translucent w/ tiny bit of red and TONS of red glitter:

Someone told me this one looks like porcelain. I kind of agree.

THis is one of the very first ones I made. It was black clay brushed with silver mica powder. Then drilled and added to a chain w/ swarovski crystals and faux black pearls. (The others are meant for a similar fate.)

This was just for fun. It's translucent mixed with a tiny bit of green clay, tons of glow-in-the-dark glitter, and some glow clay. I may turn it into a hairpin.

And some swirly lentil beads! These were kind of practice. I have Fimo, SculpeyIII, Premo, and Kato. So, I've been experimenting to see which clay makes these beads the best.

7  Yeah? in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by darkdaughter on: November 12, 2007 08:45:00 PM
Old old drawing.

The face/neck are done in graphite and her shirt is in ink. I wanted her face to be fairly real-looking (I've never been very good at portraiture), but her shirt to be just a line drwing with no shading. The scanner messed the cantrast a tiny bit, it is easier to see the different media IRL.

Two new pictures. There's been even more progress since these two:

9  Barrettes/Hairbows (picture happy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by darkdaughter on: October 24, 2007 12:45:17 PM
Scraps from a curtain and cheapo halloween rings:

I have these two guys friends who used to wear lots of vinyl and fishnet. They grew up a little bit and donated all their vinyl pants and other embarrassing clothes to my fabric stash. These are all I've made from the vinyl so far (other than a pair of boots on a ragdoll):

Fabric scraps and beads from a beaded curtain I bought at a garage sale for fiddy cent (...) :

Fabric scraps from making polka-dot bias tape:

From a remnant too small to make much of anything:

10  Some resin pendants (er, they will be pendants.[pic obese]) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by darkdaughter on: October 24, 2007 12:34:07 PM
I made these using scrapbook paper, star glitter, reg. glitter, and these star charms that I took off a necklace I got at Ross a long time ago (it had about 25 billion different sized star charms on it). What a long sentence! :

Closeups of a couple:

Here are some others. I think that the pink pearl one would be perfect on a silver chain (from each corner). I'd like to hear your opinion on that. :

Some closeups:
Scrapbook paper and glitter.

This one is turquoise and neon green thread and beads. It matches my hair. Cheesy  :

Beads and glitter:

I need to add findings to these bad boys.
I have a bit of an issue with airbubbles, but I'm learning here. This was my second/third batch.
