Homework A Day...or that's the idea :-D

Hi friends, I finished last semester a two and a half months ago, but I find I'm still catching up on things. I took three classes and it was a lot. A lot! Here is a clock I made early in the winter semester--after that, it was all kind of downhill as I found projects that weren't as time intensive.

The clock is called Timeless since I no longer possess any sense of time, or at least time dictated by external forces. Three of the faces move, but you have to watch for it :-D Portions of the piece were made with old fabric or supplies in the stash.


Here are some more pictures of Timeless from different angles and times of day. Sometimes it looks blue, gold and silver. Other times it looks gold and green or purple. The shadows between the layers are really neat. Click the pic for the whole Flickr gallery.


Quickly minimizing Sharpie smell?

So I needed to quickly recolor a doll jacket and I used a Sharpie since that was all I had on hand. I've never used one that extensively on clothes before and didn't stop to think about how strong the smell would be, and for how long. Is there any way to swiftly decrease the strength of the smell without removing the Sharpie coloring? I can't fathom how people who color people wigs with Sharpies can tolerate it, lol.

WIP Wednesday

Hi group, do you have any WIPs to share?

Have you signed up for any online classes or in-person ones, where you live, if possible?

I have so many finished objects to share, LOL! Yesterday I handed in my final project at art college and another semester is in the can, whew!
tee hee

Friday Funny :-)

LOL, the meme is captioned: "Let's admit it: we put 'made with love' on our creations because 'made with cursing, two trips to the craft shop, and lots of wine" just won't fit on a cute little label..."
