1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Alternative medias on: June 07, 2010 03:46:35 PM
I am a high school art student looking for ways to expand my portfolio. I mostly deal in drawing, painting, and ceramics. I'm looking for ideas on some alternative medias to try out this summer in my spare time. Basically, I want to try drawing and painting on surfaces other than paper and canvas. Some ideas that I had come up with were throwing a pot on the wheel and then doing a painting on it, painting on old records, and painting on wood. I would really appreciate any other ideas that anyone could think of. Thanks a ton!

Well, I haven't posted any photography here in a really long time - I haven't posted anything, really. But I decided that I wanted to share some, so here are the highlights of the past few years.

Thanks for looking! Comments, questions, suggestions always welcome.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Best beading magazine? on: March 08, 2009 01:37:01 PM
Hey all,
I'm looking to subscribe to a beading magazine, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I don't really have a specialty, I really just jump around, and I love trying new things!
Thanks a ton,

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Clear coating for a decoupaged bangle? on: March 03, 2009 06:32:30 PM
I have a bangle that I've decoupaged with different words and phrases, and now that it's done, I realize that I don't know what I should use to coat it. I have Sculpey polymer clay glaze and Mod Podge Gloss-Lustre on hand, and if neither of those would work, I can stop at the hardware store or Michaels to get what I need. Any suggestions? Thanks a ton!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Hummingbirds, hearts, hoops, and MUCH more! pic gargantuan on: July 13, 2008 03:17:14 PM
I haven't project posted in sooo long! The jewelry is just piling up. I'm posting 18 ( Shocked) pairs of earrings and two sets here, so if you have a slow internet connection, I might recommend passing this thread by.  Wink And forgive the odd pictures, I have a brand-new camera and I'm not quite used to it yet!

1 and 2. Little heart charms in silver and gold

3. Wacky blue glass beads with bead caps on long headpins

4. Fake pearls and white seed beads on hoops attached to hooks

5. Ornate heart beads

6. 3 tiny, clear Swarovski's on the end of chains

7. Cute little hummingbirds - I think I might add something to the ends of these, they seem too plain to me.

8. Two kinds of yellow glass beads hooked together - it's hard to tell, but the ones on the bottom are really clear with yellow stripes

9. Blue glass beads on long headpins

10. Striped, triangular beads and silver beads on long headpins

11. Glittery purple stars on long bits of chain

12. Silver star charms and blue glass star beads on long bits of chain

13, 14, and 15. Three of the same kind of earring but in different colors

16. Small silver hoops with 3 small, clear, Swarovski crystals

17. Cute little red-orange and yellow flowers

18. Pale pink and turquoise teardrop-shaped beads with 3 fake pearls dangling from them

Set 1. Bird charms and turquoise glass beads - a necklace and a bracelet

Set 2. Pale green Swarovski pearls linked together on a bracelet and hanging from chain on earrings

I hope you like them! Questions, comments and critique are all appreciated.
