21  Turn your child's art, you're art, a 8X10 picture,.... into a clutch- Video Tut in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: March 12, 2012 05:40:40 PM
My daughter Katie is always drawing and I wanted a fun way to display her work.
***I wish I had thought of this when my kids were little!***
Make one from your little babies footprints and handprints on paper. They would make great family gifts or party favors.

22  Why make one Owl Art when you can make mooooooore in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: March 06, 2012 01:29:58 PM
I have a wee problem with making one thing when I find something I like to make.....
The main part of the owls was drawn out by me on my computer and printed out on pages from A Complete Guide to Heraldry by A.C. Fox Davies.
I used ink pencils, tissue paper, and origami paper to add character to it making this a one of a kind piece.

Her face is hand painted with watercolor pencils, ink pencils and acrylic paints.
Her hair is made of mohair blend yarn in turquoise embellished with glass beads, strands of metallic pink, metallic rainbow thread and silver strands.

24  Mini Dressform Art... Part 2 with a video tut in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: February 11, 2012 06:50:39 PM
The first bigger one I made was an experiment. I loved how it turned out so I wanted to make another....and I could find the right doll! Anywhere! So I made a video tut with a small "child' doll. This project definitely needs a doll with some curves!

26  Dios de los Muertos One Of A Kind Mixed Media Wall Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Kimmermonroe on: February 05, 2012 02:07:18 PM
The work starts on an 8X10 canvas. I poured the plaster mask base then embellished it with paint and clay. The petals around the eyes are all raised and made from polymer clay. Each rose is hand sculpted in clay and painted.
She wears a black veil made of lace with a spider keeping it all in place.
There are small crosses and other embellishments on the canvas, including a crackle finish. These are not too bold that way it doesnt take away from the mask inteslf.
It hangs from a piece of black ribbon that is safely secured on the back.

27  Thrifted Dress form Art from the Goodwill for Under $5 in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: January 23, 2012 06:27:53 PM
The idea was in my head and I just had to shake it out! She started out life as a cheap, but large, doll from the Goodwill and stands on a candle holder.
 She stands at 20 1/2" tall.
I'm planning on doing a video tut soon....

Extreme close up!

30  Lady Arsenic from Arsenic Addiction Rag Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: January 11, 2012 06:35:15 PM
So I'm in serious love with Arsenic Addiction(I even use their music in my Youtube tuts, with their permission of course) and I made this rag doll of the Lady herself.... She didn't start out this creepy... she just evolved into it, and I love her.
