Teaser revealed – Vinyl Stickers for sale

teaserThis is what I have sitting on my analog workspace right now. Vinyl stickers made from my original designs. I’ve started adding these to my Etsy shop. The raven is 4″ wide and the hammer is 4″ tall but I will be developing other sizes as I go along. Check them out and if there is something in particular that you are looking for, drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do.

Digital Weave – Work in Progress

weaveWIPA work in progress snapshot of my latest digital weave. Trying to up the complexity a notch or two. I’m happy with the results so far but, man, this is going to hurt once I start breaking strands and working them over and under each other

Scareflake – DIY version

I made a simplified version of my skull scareflake that you can make for yourself with a printer, paper and some scissors. Basically you will fold up a printed sheet and cut along the gray lines. You need to be close to the lines but don’t worry about being totally exact. Ready? Let’s go!

That is not a blank space up there! I used light gray lines so that they won’t show through the back of your finished paper. This first file is the one you need to print out. Download it to your computer and then print it at full size onto a piece of letter sized paper.

Get your printout and scissors ready.

Fold your paper in half the long way. Make sure your edges meet evenly and that the gray lines are on the outside of the paper.

Now fold the paper in half vertically. Again, make sure the gray lines are on the outside of the folded paper.

Here’s the last fold. Fold the bottom short edge so that it meets the longer side edge at a 45 degree angle. The picture shows this better than I can explain it.

Start cutting along the printed gray lines.

Cut out the eye-hole last. Just cut straight along the gray line and work your way around the circular part.

Scareflakes: Ghost edition

scareflakes_ghostsI started playing around with the idea of snowflakes that incorporate different elements of Halloween and have found it to be quite addictive. You’ll find a different one here each day as we lead into the holiday.

I also convert these files for my Cricut machine. We’ll be cutting a bunch of them out of cardstock and using them to help decorate the house for our annual party. Should be fun!
