Updated Raticate Wallet

The first duct tape wallet I made started to fall apart due to the shitty construction.
It was my first time, so it wasn't so bad, but it didn't last as long as I had hoped.
So I tweaked some of the construction and layout and made sure to be really meticulous about it's measurements so it would last longer.
Here's the old one

:c his tail was coming off and the insides were falling apart.
and all of the adhesive was getting smudged and ugly.
This is ONYX-eptable
So I got to working on a new one.

Cutting out the little beastie

How the inside of the wallet turned out, 4 card slots, 2 hidden pockets, 1 I.D. slot
Billfold complete with lettering ;D

Finished Product

I got rid of the borders because it looked too messy.
I liked this simple look a lot better.
It used up a lot less tape and came out looking clean and nice.
It came out better than I had expected, I liked it so much that I didn't want to give it away... again.

School's over so hopefully I can get back to posting blogs again, I missed it

:D see you guys later

Hell boy birthday :)

Tons of birthdays this month!
I think handmade stenciled shirts make a kick ass gifts
They're inexpensive to make and the people receiving them usually love them.
It was my best friend's birthday not too long ago so i got him a Hell Boy themed birthday gift

Hellboy stenciled shirt
Figurines :D
Stenciled gift bag
EVEN stenciled balloons!

Tape all the things!

So I decided to dabble a little more and start making some duct tape wallets. I've only made one so far, I made it to compliment a shirt I made for a friend.

I'm thinking of making some more.
This was my first time making one and I think it came out pretty sweet.

I just need more ideas I'm what kind to make. :)
Feel free to comment some suggestions.

Quick one

Made another shirt today :D
This was for a friend of my brother's. It was her birthday yesterday.
I do not in any way condone such things.
It's a cutie mark from my little pony.

Hey Stranger

HEY GUYS I miss posting. It's been a long time. I've been really busy with school and work now, I barely have any time to make any more shirts. I miss it. I made another one yesterday. It came out a little messy, but the person I'm giving it to liked it, so that's all that matters :)

1st layer
This is the most layers I've done so far, so it was a little hard.

2nd layer

3rd layer
4th layer
FINAL and toughest LAYER

End result.

I painted it with a mixture of fabric paint and acrylics.
I noticed that the water based acrylics are a lot more runny than fabric paint.
They're really cheap too. I got them @ Michaels for $0.59

I still have a little more to do on the shirt, but I'll post more later
Hopefully :D

Blank Canvas

How I love blank canvas. So much potential. So many ideas.

But in this case there aren't enough.

My friend gave me some onesies to stencil for her 16 month old. I haven't gotten started on painting them because I'm still not too sure on what to put on them. I haven't started partly because I've been busy with the new fall semester and partly because I hate doing half assed work so I'm not going to it my heart into it, I don't even bother getting started.

So give me some ideas friends! And I'll see if I can make it happen.

I finally did it!
took me a good while, some trial and error but I got it!

There he is, getting ready for his debut

He just woke up and was feeling lazy...

I shuffled and layed out the cards in a random order and he wasn't having any of it.

Then I remembered that he's a total binger and loves treats

So I put a little piece on every card, and whichever was eaten last would take the cake.

See how it all went down, and who the winner is!

Congrats to the winner! Send me a message and We'll discuss all the details ;)

Getting ready

Harley aka Harlitos is away with my siblings for the weekend but I'm getting ready for him to sniff out a winner tomorrow! Please excuse the delay, I've just been held up since my fall semester is gonna start up again tomorrow. :D

I wrote all your names down on little note cards. Harley will be picking one of you for the shirt. :) I'm kinda excited to see how this turns out. I'll post pictures of the pup in action.

See you guys tomorrow.

Picking the winner :)

So I decided to be a little more creative than putting all you guys' names in a random generator.

I decided to make it a little more fun.

I'm writing all your names on little note cards.

and then I'm going to lay them all out and have this little guy pick one.

Don't worry, he's very impartial and has no favorites.
I promise you he'll be fair.

Sorry for the delay but I've been a little busy the past couple days.
I'll post the winner reallly soon!
Good luck and thanks again!

Not so hot

The weather lately has been really bumming me out
I feel like I can't go out and enjoy the day with out feeling like I'm going to die of heat exhaustion as soon as I step out of the door.

Stepping inside my car is like walking into a preheated oven, I can't even touch the steering wheel without getting 3rd degree burns.

It's that humid kind of hot.
I can't wait for fall to arrive.
I miss days like these.
Days you feel you've gotten the most out of and you've accomplished something.

School is coming up really soon, and I'm excited. This lack of stimulation was driving my crazy.
Time to go back to school for some more doodling while the professor talks. :)

+1000000 Points if you know where that guy is from.

I noticed something today.
It really bothers me when people push my opinion or ideas aside. I've had that done to me all my life. It irritates me, makes me angry, so angry it makes me want to cry but not of sadness, but out of frustration. What bothers me even more is how much I let it get to me. I've always felt that, "Quiet Child, adults are speaking." feeling. Whether it's with my parents or friends or classmates. Classmates especially, but I get over that rather quickly because I could not give more of a shit about them. I'm too emotional I suppose, I think with my emotions and sometimes it's my downfall. But will I do something about it? Probably not. Why? I feel that it's a waste of energy. Granted, getting upset over things like this is a waste of energy but at least I keep it to myself rather than go through the whole process of arguing with someone.

Ick. Idk. What do you guys think?

That's enough emo crap for today eh? I feel better :)

Wish me luck, I'm about to start the painting process.

I'll do another little contest sometime next week. I'm having too much fun doing this. :)

Thanks guys and have an awesome day.
