21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Mommy's Wedding Necklace on: November 12, 2007 05:11:11 PM
It's two strands of tigertail done in sort of a figure 8. Its not to complicated but I like to start in the middle, which often means I end up dropping an end and loosing most of my progress. I'm glad to be finished with this one.

...Okay, so she's not MY mommy, but she may as well be!

My good friend's mom is getting married in a couple of months and she usually tends to do her Christmas shopping out of my garage, because she loves to drool over shiny things with me.

I decided it would be nice for her to have something made special just for her. And this came out perfectly.

It's pretty simple, but it's just Mommy's style. She's going to be so thrilled.

That is amazing. I love the shapes in it.

If your dad doesn't like it for some reason, you know where to find people willing to take that off your hands for you.  Wink

What's a pizza box painting?

It is a painting on a pizza box! Because it's cheaper than canvas. Smiley

Another old pizza box painting I dug up.
 I'm not sure it's done. I think she needs pig-tails.

The teddy is my favorite part though.

I dug this one out while looking for old "in progress" pieces to finish up.

"My car just got smashed to bits, but I feel better now."
It's about a year old. A little old lady ran a stop sign. I was mad.
I think this took me about 20 minutes. I was pretty proud.

Acrylics on pizza box.
I'm not kidding. It's cheaper than canvas, and you get to eat the pizza. Smiley

Tracing paper is a good idea, I don't know how I always manage to overlook that option. I'm sure I've got some laying around SOMEWHERE...

I also managed to dig up a pad of 14x17 paper... maybe I'll have a go at a larger copy.

I have a bit of a silly question. Mostly I just need an opinion.

I am working on this for the boyfriend for christmas:

(Stock photo from: http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com)

Unfortunately, when I started it I was just killing time, trying to get some practice in as I haven't done much with a pencil in ages. I didn't think much of tracking down a canvas, or larger paper, or decent quality paper at least...

I'm thinking watercolors or colored pencils for this one, but I'm not very comfortable with either. I'm a little reluctant to try to attempt a larger version...

And ideas? I'm afraid to start inking it in and decide I picked the wrong one.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Finger knitting? on: October 24, 2007 11:59:45 AM
Yes, I know its not REAL knitting, but some of us are not as talented as fabulous people. (I tried to learn once, but was rather unsuccessful, as I apparently require an extra set of hands to get anything accomplished.)

In any case, I made a wire frame to "finger knit" a scarf for a friend's daughter for Christmas. I thought it was rather ingenious, but I admit I  may have seen such a thing around somewhere before which sparked the idea.

I finished the scarf pretty quickly, (it's little. she's only 4) but I find myself stuck. I feel rather silly asking this, but I don't know how to get it off the frame without unraveling the whole thing!

How do you tie off something like this? I'm afraid to ruin it!
30  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Star Wars t-shirts on: September 11, 2007 11:59:42 PM
I just finished these for my boyfriend.

I am terribly proud of myself, as I have FINALLY managed to track down freezer paper.

I knew it would be easier, (I had been using contact paper previously, yuck, never again) but I had no idea it would be THAT much easier.

I now own 75sq feet of freezer paper... Not much else is going to get done around the house for a couple of days. Smiley
