1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Lino Cobra Prints on: August 09, 2008 09:53:58 PM
Second time at trying the linoleum block.

My favorite, on blue paper, I put down black ink on a blank lino block, then did the cobra print in gold on top.

kinda lame and scanned badly, but I like the color combination of red and gold.

This one was done with yellow and orange paint squeezed next to each other and I rolled the ink so it would mix together in the center.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / my great-grandfather was Dwyde Schrude...amish. on: July 20, 2008 09:30:14 PM
After seeing the NBC store t shirts for like 30 bucks, I felt the need to make my own rendition of Dwight's popular Beet Farm t shirts.

Picture from my cell...fyi the lettering is blue and it wasn't that I was lazy and didn't feel like making islands, each letter is supposed to be segmented.

im happy with it...although the one "e" is totally bothering me right now.

i encourage all of you office fans to make some too because they're so friggen easy Wink
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Rilo Kiley! on: June 17, 2008 09:35:30 AM
So i found this flyer for a rilo kiley shirt and I was like WHOA simple enough! i cut it out and stenciled it real quick. http://defgav.com/Rilo%20Kiley%20-%202007-08-10%20Eagle%20Rock%20-flyer.jpg

My boobs make it look a little crooked... oh wait, hahah it actually might be crooked. ignore the cat fur too:)

also i think the font and style makes it look like i was too lazy to cut out the centers but i like the style, even if it looks a little cheap. should i outline the letters or add something? i think i like it the way it is but there's always room for adding something
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / ELECTRIC blue zebra tote. on: June 11, 2008 08:18:33 PM
I found this amazing zebra print fabric at the fabric outlet a while ago and it was like $2.00 for 3 yards! I didn't know what to do with it for a while until I got bored while I was sick and made a very simple tote. I didn't square the bottom or hem properly because I whipped it up fast (I'm a 'quick results' crafter Angry) It carried all my books to finals and I use it all the time for the library now and just quick trips anywhere. I'm very pleased.

haha the dumb pins, ignore them? Grin
5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / More converse recons on: June 11, 2008 08:06:18 PM
First the pink. these used to be high tops. I made these last summer. They kind of fall of my feet like when I walk up the steps at school but I still love wearing them.

NOW for the 'green trash'. i don't know why I added the silver paint splatters but I was going to throw them out after four years of usage anyway. Hahh all of my friends told me to throw them out and I recently went in a creek in them and stuff, they're actually ripped on the sides but they're my favorite shoes EVER!....sorry to go on about them=D

paint splatter detail.

for the top, i used an old tank top hem. i was also in no mood to break out the sewing machine so i used hot glue for both.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Kit...didn't come with 'base' =/ on: August 11, 2007 09:08:46 AM
I bought a screen printing kit 2 weeks ago. It came with the frame, inks, squeegee, emulsion etc. However, it didn't come with the 'base' for the frame, and I didn't notice that until I opened it up. My question is do I really need this base? The order sheet in the back of the instruction book said I can buy one for like 15 bucks, or I can make one. I don't want to make one. Thank you for the help in advance Smiley, I can't wait to start.
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / MOD PODGE!! on: August 06, 2007 10:02:59 PM
I have some ideas...like covering crap with magazine clippings, 'cause everyone does that, right?

Well I have 8 oz. of the stuff...I bought it randomly at the craft store today because it seemed like a buttload of fun. So far it is, but what else can I do!?
