New hobby I picked up(why working at a craft store is A TERRIBLE TERRIBLE IDEA)
Took me forever but that was due mostly to lots of breaks and also because I had to do double work, I used a template and had to cut IT out so I could use it on the paper I wanted to use.
If I made my own it would take less time.
Not bad for my first attempt though, I enjoyed it though my arm hates me now
Copic markers it is. I can smooth out the streaks with rubbing alcohol/blending marker. How the hell didn’t I think of this earlier?! Low mess to boot! Have my desired basic 6-color colorblind-accessible palette set up in Illustrator ready to print off and have on hand for my next visit to Jerry’s so I can figure out which markers I need to best replicate it (unless Michael’s also sells individual Copic markers??? I have no idea).
Die cut this out of the 300 gsm cardstock with some post-op Xacto-ing and it turned out p good (!!), though on a second attempt I’ll do at least three passes instead of two since it it’s a little scruffy around the edges. Colored after die-cutting and before hand-cutting. Now my biggest issue with that cardstock is everytime I try and print on it my printer flips out and gets hella jammed. B[
Got some ideas for the packaging for these things that is going to be perfect and functional and clever and adorable and I’m about to knock out the last bit of this complex homework so I can turn it in and run the hell home and get down to business. I have pretty much settled on the dimensions of this card as what I’ll be using from here on out (10x11.5 cm).
Yep, not a plushie! Apparently I’m working with paper now, too.
A collaboration with my friend cogglerscanvas whom I commissioned to do the art (since I suck at art). This was a gift for a Secret Santa I did with friends, but there’s a good chance I’ll do more shadowboxes in the future.
I went to a San Francisco 49ers football game and struck gold. I was given a snack box (or three) to take to my seat. The snacks were great, and the box was even better. While others were discarding their used boxes, I tucked mine under my sweater so I didn’t overtly look like a bag lady. I gazed around furtively, in case anyone were to try to separate me from my treasure.
I used Martha Stewart paper, ribbon, EK Success punches on card stock and the corrugated sleeve of a cup of Starbucks coffee to make a Halloween treat box. Oh yeah, the game was good too.
My first bit of Journey fan art. My first real bit of art, period. I made this with cut paper. I really wanted to the game justice, as it is one of the most moving pieces of art I have ever experienced.
