11  plaid manly grandpa book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by weeta on: December 15, 2006 08:16:00 PM
I made this for my grandfather for Christmas...I really hate chain stitch binding..it seems toooo flimsy! But it is quick, and he lives 2000 miles away, and I procrastinate!  Lips sealed

The inside pages are some fancy-schmancy leftover scraps of Arches Text...the brown/orange doublesided mulberry is from Jo-anns scrapbooking section (it's glued to thicker paper and is admittedly pretty neat-o and much easier than gluing two sheets of mulberry paper together) and the plaid is also from Jo-ann's scrapbooking section.  Cheesy The finished book was about 4 inches tall.

I don't have a "tut" for it...I took a bookbinding class in college & just sort of go by memory & how it looks/feels.

12  Re: Show us your Photoshop and PSP art!!! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by weeta on: December 07, 2006 11:11:09 PM
this was done Photoshop and Illustrator...photographs cleaned up, posterized & cleaned up again in Photoshop and then traced & re-colored in Illustrator. It's the first thing I've done outside of work in a WHILE so it was super fun because doing stuff for work is no fun!
tentatively my Christmas card...printed on antique-white cardstock. I'll probably change the text around though because it's bothering me Tongue

13  short-fingered (fingerless?) gloves! in Crochet: Completed Projects by weeta on: November 15, 2006 11:21:44 PM
This is the second project I've done in crochet...I used Patons Brilliant Black Dazzle with this pattern but did not add the "mitten" part. They are a bit misshapen but they keep my paws warm and still let me type, AND they sparkle. So they work for me Cheesy

I made a mummy costume based on 365halloween's tutorial. I won 1st place (and $100!) at work and had way too much fun making it...and a lot more fun being a mummy all day Cheesy

15  mummy costume!! (from 365halloween tut) - 3 pix in Halloween Costumes by weeta on: October 31, 2006 07:09:50 PM
I made a mummy costume based on this fabulous tutorial. I used a pair of boys white long underwear, sleeves cut off, dyed in tea; cheesecloth dyed in tea, and unbleached gauze.  I ended up sewing all of the gauze (except for six 3 yd strips, these got sewed to my shoulders to wrap around my arms & head) to the long undies, solely to save time. I have to be at work pretty early and knew I wouldn't have the time to do any wrapping. I used about 7 yards of gauze and 3 yards of cheesecloth, I probably could have used more.

It was really fun to make and even more fun to wear!

A lot of people thought I bought it, and were stunned to hear that I made it.  I ended up winning 1st prize & $100 at work - I'm still really (but pleasantly!) surprised because I didnt' think making a costume was such a big deal!!!

My only regret is that I didn't really spend enough time on makeup...I had the makeup, but not the time. I used a lot of black eyeliner & powder, and some green, and white powder, but didn't have time for anything really elaborate Sad

thank you for the suggestions! I wish I would have planned it better because going all Egyptian with it would have been really fun, but I just wasn't able to find/make a good crown or headdress. I'll probably wear this costume again - it was really fun! if I do I'm definitely going to go more egyptian with accessories and jewelry.

But, here's a side view of what I did. I'm obsessed with pigtails and pigtail-like structures, and they also helped to keep the gauze wrapped around my head. Probably not the best hairstyle for a mummy,  but I like it anyway Cheesy

17  Beatles cross stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by weeta on: October 07, 2006 05:09:49 PM
Well, first, I am not a  Beatles fan at ALL, so this might not really resemble the band very accurately. My sister loves them, and I wanted to make something for her new apartment, so I made this.

The letters are multi-colored metallic thead and there's some silver in there, it's a lot more sparklytastic in person Wink

I'm not going to post the chart for it because it's not mine to post; I just imported some icons (http://www.members.shaw.ca/korinchan/adoptee/beatles.html) into PCStitch and changed them a little. I did the logo in photoshop straight from the album cover, then imported it to PCStitch

die in a fire! now clean!

dhaunae, I initially made this for my boyfriend to hang on the wall in his office (he's a gamer too and is always telling people to die in a fire, haha) but I think he chickened out Tongue ohh well

20  more botched poly clay! in Stitch And BOTCH by weeta on: September 17, 2006 05:59:34 PM
I worked all afternoon on little 'marble' color Fimo skulls.
after two tries closely monitoring the toaster oven at 200 (not closely enough Wink) my boyfriend suggested using the regular/gas oven. so we preheated it for a good 20 minutes (I don't think you even need to preheat a gas oven but I do think it evened the temperature out) to 265, and I left them in the oven for eight minutes. they are less than a quarter inch thick and very tiny.
I don't have an oven thermometer but I'm considering one if I ever need to use clay again. sheesh.

now to figure out what to do with all these haphazardly mauve skulls!!
