1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Angelique Hootkamp Water paintings on: August 03, 2009 10:07:56 PM
Here are a few water paintings I did. I plan to do more bigger ones. The pics were taken in a dark room with artificial lights so they're not that great.


I've been looking FOREVER to find the original artist as I just saved the images without noting her name. Her name is Angelique Hootkamp and does AMAZING work. I plan on doing more of her designs. Check out her website www.salonserpent.com. SO GOOD!

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / What will seal wood so that is safe to wash and eat off of? on: March 31, 2009 09:35:24 AM
I want to paint on this bamboo cheese board and I'm wondering what to use to seal it so it would be safe to eat off of.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Beginner questions regarding fusible web and the best way to applique using it on: March 12, 2009 10:08:28 AM
I'm making my first quilt that will hopefully look somewhat like the one below.

I am wondering about the wing coloured parts. Would I cut the fabric with holes in in to fit in the circle parts or would I just layer everything on top of each other?

I bought fusible web and tried it on a scrap piece but it doesn't stick very well and I'm worried about the pieces peeling off in the wash or something. I don't know if I used it wrong or if I got the cheap stuff. When I went to the fabric store I just got pointed to the aisle where it was and it was with a bunch of interfacing and I had no idea what I was supposed to get (as nothing had labels). I just picked up the one that looked most web-like!

Does this method work or should I just do it the old fashioned way and applique it with thread?

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidery on Velvet?? on: March 09, 2009 09:34:33 AM
Has anyone tried this? I really want to do a piece on black velvet but I'm not sure if it would work.


6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Quilt Block Swap (Embroidery) on: February 17, 2009 10:46:33 AM
I'd like to do a quilt but I'm not really into the geometric designs and prefer embroidered/appliqued blocks. I think it would be neat to do a swap where everyone contributes a block to a quilt. The blocks can have a theme or can be completely random.

Let me know if you're interested!!!!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Diapers on: March 23, 2008 09:10:29 AM
The diapers still need to be finished off my my sister in law. They're for her sister.

I think she'll dig them.

Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated!  Cool
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / English Garden Ribbon Embroidery on: February 17, 2008 04:28:54 PM
This was for my mother in law for this past X-mas but I couldn't find the right matte for the frame so the embroidery wouldn't get crushed once the glass went in...ya know? Anyhoo, I found one and she'll get it this weekend. My camera is no good at taking closeups unfortunately so bear with me.

Thanks for looking!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Framed Wild Tigers Cross-stitch on: February 17, 2008 04:23:00 PM
This was done over the span of two years but one year I barely touched it as I was doing all my wedding crafts. I'm so glad to finally have it done and beautifully framed at that (not by me of course I got the pros to do that!).

The glass is so nice in real life. You can't even tell its there!

Thanks for looking!
