Valentine's Day and Baby Shower Gifts 2015

Here are some new items I created. Some of the items I sold to customers at work or did swaps online with the creative craft groups on Facebook. I am hooked on some of those craft groups doing swaps online. So there might be more crafts coming due to this. I hope you enjoy your valentines day!


 

(For the 3 above pictures)
First Heart Box I created with lace and trim, paper peacock (yes I cut all the feathers on the peacock which took 3 to 4 hours just to make the peacock), with paper and fabric roses not made by me, beaded bling inside and outside the box, sprigs of beading at top right of box, and red scrapbooking paper donated from a co-worker at work. The whole project took 8 or 9 hours total. I sent this heart box to a crafter from a facebook crafting swap group. Here is the website I got the inspiration for the peacock http://stranamasterov.ru/node/89121?tid=451%2C587
It is in another language but just translate it with right clicking your mouse on the page to translate it. This is a medium size box about 5 or 6 inches across.

Second Heart Box I sold this box for $40. The customer who was a guy wanted an Adirondack theme box since he and his wife are going to retire in the Adirondacks in the future. He requested the pine cones in the top right corner of the box. The customer and his wife are into hiking, and canoeing and wanted a woodsy look for the box. The front of the box is scrapbooking paper of a pathway, there is light green lace and white lace, fake wood paper inside and outside the box, 2d stickers of a canoe, hiking sign, and trees inside the box. The customer was very happy with the box when I delivered it to him. This is a medium size box about 5 or 6 inches across.

This is 4th Heart Box I created. Made with paper and fabric roses, with a paper peacock and yes I cut out all the feathers, red paper, lace on the side of the box and bling beads on the inside of the box. This box is a smaller box and is about 3 or 4 inches across. I sent this to someone in one of the craft swap groups.

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.




Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
