YEEEEEAAAAAAA-YUH!!!!! For my friend who loves Regular Show, I made a "Birthdation" (birthday/graduation) card starring Mordecai and Rigby! I know Mordecai's eyes look a little freaky, but bear with my here... All in all, I really like how it turned out, and it was a blast to make!
Oh yeah, the inside has a bunch of baby ducks, too!
"Regular Show" is DEFINITELY owned by Cartoon Network, and NOT by me!
Mini notebook in steampunk/art nouveau style, designed and handmade by me.
It's a gift for a friend, ~vucinka. The awkward part is, she had practically the same idea for presents for two other friends, check it out... [link] In my defense, I started making this for Christmas 2010, but got stuck and finished only this year Yeah, I'm terrible at deadlines. But I think she liked it anyway [well, I certainly did].
Format: A6 Pages: office paper dyed with black tea, cut, hand-stitched Cover: office paper again, rumpled for texture and dyed with black tea, then glued onto really hard cardboard folder Picture: watercolors, colored pencils, black ink pen
Something I wanted to try for a long time :^) A handmade notepad with 30 sheets (74 x 105 mm, 180 g/m²) made to look like more vintage. Perfect for scribbling, so I sketched a heart on the first piece of paper. Cover and backside are hand painted and made from solid cardboard. I like that shabby stuff and was really fun making ♥
~Sold. But you can order your own customized notepad.
As you see it here it is obviously missing it's rigging and balloons. Photos of the dirigible in flight with it's balloons will be coming once I get this thing in the air.
Progress Photos and details of the build can be found:
The core ingredient in this build is a small toy grade quad copter, the rest of the gondola was custom built around the quad copter, which will be used to provide the control once the dirigible's helium envelopes are inflated and attached.
The gondola itself is built from various materials including: Foam Core Matte Photo Paper Carbon Fiber Tubing E-6000 glue White Glue Super Glue A juice bottle cap random metallic pieces from my bits kit.
Added for style are N-Scale ships crew figures and N-Scale shipping crates and packages.
Spray paint, acrylic model paints and rub-n-buff were also used.
I may or may not have re-fallen in love with Hugo Cabret, and all the beautiful clocks... don't be surprised at more Hugo worksss... So this was a little experiment, to see if papercutting in jars worked. I've had an idea for a Loki one!!!
