1  Kiss my Carolina Grits in Needlework: Completed Projects by ScribblePainter on: January 11, 2009 07:11:00 PM
I am a native Floridian, but most of my family hails from South Carolina, Particularly in St. George, which is known as the Grits Capital of the World!
So I did the classic Kiss My Grits phrase with the Cabbage palm and crescent moon. I ended up giving it to my parents for Christmas and they loved it!

2  Re: Show Off Your Hair! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by ScribblePainter on: August 06, 2008 05:47:53 PM
I dyed my hair a few days ago. I used a blonde dye to lighten it all over, it turned out a bit reddish I'm guessing just because of the red that is naturally in my hair.

And, since I wanted to do something different I used a bleach blonde dye to to just a chunk on the bottom. It's only visible when it's up, which is good because I have pretty conservative bosses. And this is the result....

I hate the summertime as a college student, no scholarship money coming in and most of my loan money is gone by the middle of it. So I wanted a new haircut but didn't have much cash, and last night after I dried my hair I was feeling especially generic when looking in the mirror.
So I cut my own hair.

And after:

I like my little pieces that hang down with a ponytail:

Looking at it myself, I think it turned out pretty damn good, considering I have never cut hair before in my life. I wanted something funky, but I wanted to keep it long too. I think this style does the job.

4  Three Old Drawings From High School! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ScribblePainter on: June 15, 2008 07:16:49 PM
Hey Everyone! I did these drawings (along with 16 other projects in different mediums!) for an art scholarship I was going for during my senior year of high school.

This one I actually had as a smaller still life in my first year drawing class, so I took the same image and made it larger and intensified the tones a bit.

This last one is a charcoal self portrait, the others are graphite.
Thanks for checking them out!

5  Two No Sew Fused Plastic Bag Wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScribblePainter on: May 25, 2008 05:56:53 PM
I cannot sew very well (yet!), and I was playing around with fusing plastic bags together and I found that you don't even need to sew them! Sweet! Here are two of my creations:

These were made out of about 8 of those really thin bags that you get your newspaper delivered in, and then I doubled it over so the plastic is pretty thick, I think it could withstand a lot.

I made this one by fusing a couple layers of different colored bags together, cutting them into strips and then fusing those strips together.

...and here is the inside, I like the stripe-yness.
Hope you like!

6  My Dad is a simple biologist....(6 photos!) in Completed Projects by ScribblePainter on: May 25, 2008 05:44:20 PM
...So making him crafty stuff is a little hard. I like bright colors and splattered paint, and he is very much a naturalist. His 50th birthday is coming up and he is building a shed in the backyard where he will be putting a big drafting table, so I thought he would need a stool to use in there too. So here is my creation:

I based the design of the stool around wildlife and flora of Florida, which he has worked towards conserving for his entire career.

Adult and Juvenile Sandhill Crane

Yaupon Holly

Florida Scrub Jay and Slash Pine

(The legs and the side of the seat-a pale green)
I used a Dremel to carve out the design, a woodburning tool to burn in the final images, and then I finished off the details with acrylic paint.

(More detail on the rungs)
I hope he likes it, I'm going home to visit this week!

7  My Grandma's Birthday Present; Handpainted Orchid Tables. (5 Photos within!) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ScribblePainter on: May 06, 2008 08:31:47 PM
My grandma is turning 85 at the end of the month and I wanted to do something special for her. Her favorite flowers are orchids, so when I found these little banged up tables at Goodwill I knew what I wanted to do to them.

Little Tables Transformed!

(by the way, please pardon my stained dirty floors, I live in a rather old apartment  Embarrassed)

I haven't sealed them just yet, I am keeping them out in plain sight for a few days to decide whether I want to fix any details on them or not, but maybe I should just leave them alone rather than run the risk of screwing them up!  Grin

8  Tomato and Onion Focaccia Bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by ScribblePainter on: April 24, 2008 07:49:33 PM
I make this bread all the time, it's one of my favorite recipes. I use the Rosemary Focaccia recipe from the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, just for the dough and I add the tomato and onion slices. The trick for the best flavor is to let the tomatoes and onions marinate for a couple hours before you slap them on the dough. I use a marinade with olive oil, red wine vinegar, orange and lemon juice, and a few other ingredients and spices as well.

It makes really good little turkey sandwiches. Just turkey and mayo, its awesome.

9  Shells: Macro Photo Challenge in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ScribblePainter on: April 20, 2008 08:54:35 PM
Here's my entry for the Macro Photography Challenge. I took this with my Uncle's old Pentax from the 70s, on the beach in Jupiter, Fl. It's one of the few beaches I've seen in Florida with such dark sand, it was really beautiful.

10  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by ScribblePainter on: April 18, 2008 05:19:37 PM
This is a tattoo I designed for my best friend. We've known each other since we were five years old and he wanted something to represent how our lives have intertwined. I finally settled on a Maori symbol for friendship, showing two pieces actually as one, separating, but always coming back together again. He loved it thankfully and he is getting it on his right bicep. For some scale, its about the size of a can of soda.
