Moving

Hello

My site is NOT moving. Me as a person is moving, and I have to tell you its a LOT harder then I thought. My very soul has been troubled and the only reason I not in a puddle of my own tears right now is because the good Lord has my family and I going through these rough waters for a reason.

There are a lot of different directions he may want us to go, so instead of jumping the gun we are waiting in faith he will show us where we need to go. So Lord willing I will start posting in late June or early July.

Much love you guys,

Monica

Line Art by Sureya

Hello Everyone,

I love Sureya line-art!!!! I have been a big fan of this DeviantArt Artist for so many years now. I go back time and time again just to see if any thing new has been posted. If you are interested in her art work check it out at: http://sureya.deviantart.com/

This year I though, instead of just drooling over her work I need to do something with what I see. So I started making the following cards.

Pop Up Birthday Card

, , ,

Hello All,

It has been quite a beginning. So much has changed in just two months that a lot of people including myself have hit the ground running. But one thing is constant and that is my love for crafting.

I recently been occupying my time over at Koala T Crafts, setting up challenges on a weekly bases. It has been quite an eye opening experience to say the least, considering I don’t like standing out very much. It has defiantly gotten me out of my comfort zone, but that what a new year is. A new start in doing thing I normally wouldn’t do.

Right now I am creating birthday cards for other crafter over at Koala T Craft. Since I recently received one I thought I would return in kind.  Below is just one of many I am making. However after really looking at it…. it kind of looks like a valentine card. Maybe if I tone down the pink and hearts it may pass for a birthday cupcake?

T-Shirt Dying as Christmas Gift

Happy New Year Everybody,

Well its been a long 2016 and I am super happy it is finally 2017. A new chapter, a new year full of crafty stuff. And on that note let go back to Christmas as we did something totally different this holiday with my family.

What we ended up doing is a “Create Your Own Gift” exchanged. Honestly it was a bit refreshing to see what my sisters would come up with. Since they have different forms of craftiness. For example I can’t sew to save my life but my little sister Rosemary has an amazing eye for it. The second eldest sister has an awesome talent to look at a room and make it look beautiful. Which I can not.

Luckily for me I drew my Bother-in-Law so I didn’t have to try to sew or figure out what went well in a room. Few dodged a bullet there! And speaking of bullets I though what a perfect gift to give a gamer then a T-Shirt with Bullet Bill on it.  Now my Bother-in-Law is not a tiny man. He as tall as a Tree and skinny as one too.  So no 8.50 X 11 image could be placed on this XL shirt.

No I had to use my Silhouette Cameo 12 X 24 Mat to get the Stencil done. Much like I had to do for all his shirts.  Now I have never bleached a shirt in my life…. Well not on purpose any way. So I went to http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-bleach-shirts-with-custom-designs/ to see how I could make this happen.

Bullet Bill

Since I was using my Silhouette I didn’t really use 80% of the items posted. Instead of freezer paper I used just plan old packing paper ( You know the kind of stuff that comes in Amazon boxes) and packing tape to hold down my images. I wanted the T-shirts to look vintage so if any bleach bleed throw it just gave that worn out look.

 

TellTale – The Walking Dead

Now this one took a little more care to make a layer effect. Since Instructable.com didn’t really have anything I could reference I went to the next best thing YouTube. Here I found a YouTuber who can teach you how to layer when you bleach. His YouTube tag is Mad Stuff With Rob: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdnCUvCENRQ&t=451s. Not only his he funny but gives you clear insturctions on how to do his right.

Shadow of the Colossus

This one is my favorite silhouette images I made. However a red T-shirt was not the way to go.  It came out to light and a lot of the details where lost. Overall he seem to really like it any way, which is the reason we even did this.

Well I hope you liked what you see, I hope to post some videos soon.
