Free Scrapbook Printables

4 June 2017 at 19:12 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

Here are some printable graphics I made for a couple of scrapbooks I’m making. Some of them are completely original, some are recreations of elements I saw in other people’s work. If anything looks too similar to a graphic you are the copyright holder of, just let me know, and I’ll take it down. Some graphics use shapes/textures from openclipart.org, morguefile.com, webtreats.mysitemyway.com and another free graphics site, but I can’t remember which one 😦

These are thumbnails. Click to see full-size. Right-click > Save Link As… to save the image. You can use these for digital scrapbooks, too, but you might want to add a drop-shadow. These were really designed for my physical scrapbooks. You might need to play around with your printer settings. I recommend creating a test-sheet first so you can see how colours translate from the screen to paper. I find that a gsm of between 100 and 130 is best for scrapbook graphics.

TOU: Non-commercial use only. Feel free to create derivative works for sharing, just don’t claim credit as entirely your own. You don’t have to link here, just don’t pretend you made it from scratch.

Paper Mache Storage Unit

16 April 2016 at 20:20 (Artwork, Random Randomness) ()

A thing I made for my mum! I finally finished this on the 1st of March! It’s made out of three shoeboxes reinforced with card, then paper machéd with newspaper and cooked-flour-paste. Painted with one coat of brilliant white emulsion, then acrylic paint. Embellished with half pearls and rhinestones.

Paper Mache Baby Sofa Finally Finished!

16 April 2016 at 20:07 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, )

I finally finished this on the 12th of March 2016. Here’s what it looks like!

Stencilling should be done with sponges and not regular paintbrushes. I had to learn this by experience.

babysofa-detail

Not only can it take the weight of a toddler, it can take the weight of two toddlers and one me, making it strong enough to support 80kg+!!

And the kids loved it, so it was a job well done. The end.

I’m jealous of your clothes, because they feel your warmth every day. I’m jealous of your bed that gets to spend each night with you. I’m jealous of everyone who gets to hear your voice. I’m jealous of every single goddamn person who walks past you on the street, who could reach out and touch you, if only they knew, but I can’t even reach you.

Dolls House Update 11/07/15 – Getting better

11 July 2015 at 20:35 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

So I mentioned in my last update that I bought some (I hope) better quality paint. Two in titanium white and one in silver. Got it from quickdraw on eBay, who had a buy 3, get 20% off offer. And because I’m good at working out 20%, I realised I could get them at £6.40 each.

Soooo…

newpaint

That’s cardstock I got for the wallpaper. It shows just how yellow the Wilko paint got!

So I got the Royal and Langnickel brand. This new paint is glossier when applied, as you can see below:

painted2

It does seem to be better than the Wilko stuff. Gloopier and slightly better coverage.

I’ve given everything a coat, except the roof. And the underside has already had two coats.

painted1

Giving Cal’s bed a coat as well. I think I’ll make his bed silver though.

calsbedpainted

Now the back of the pack says that the colour will remain intense and bright. So I’m taking them at their word. I really need to get a move on as the spare room is going to be needed in under a week! Better get cracking!

Dolls House Update 05/07/15 Hiccup #948682

5 July 2015 at 20:08 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

Oh wow, every single stage of this is going wrong, but so far, all the previous problems were solvable. This one is even worse than the uneven floor board in the dining area.

So at the last update, I realised that water-based polyurethane varnish and emulsion paint do not go well together. So I set about repainting the whole thing once more in acrylic.

But things are STILL going wrong.

Because the paint is turning freakin’ YELLOW!

Making a 1:12 scale loft bed out of paper mache

27 June 2015 at 17:26 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , , )

Right, here’s how I made the loft bed for my dolls’ house. To get the proportions, I based it on measurements from my old real-life bunk bed, scaled it down by 12, and made some tweaks.

What you will need:
Cardboard, about A3 size, roughly
Glue (pref silicone or, second-best, PVA)
Pencil
Metal ruler with millimetre measurements
Craft knife
Cutting board
Masking tape and coarse sandpaper, maybe

loft-bedconstructed

PROTIP: In order to make the paper mache stage less fiddly, you could paper mache all the individual components FIRST, then assemble at the end. Alternatively, rather than paper mahce, you could just glue cardstock on to each component, then glue together at the end.

First thing is to make the base of the bed. So measure out some cardboard, 140mm long by 70mm wide. Glue them together, back to back, and allow glue to set.

Dolls’ House Update 22/06/15

So what I did was give the whole thing 2-3 coats of white emulsion, which my parents just happened to have lying about.

Paper Mache Dolls’ Restaurant Update

27 April 2015 at 18:50 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

Okay, I was meant to make regular updates on this, but somehow never got round to switching on the computer. Why? Because I was either cutting cardboard, getting tangled in masking tape, or
stuck doing endless paper macheing. So you now get the whole thing so far in one sitting.

dollshouse-groundfloordone
So at the last update, we only had the kitchen and the entryway for the residential area. Now I have a whole ground floor. So this is the back view. I’ve got most of the walls done and something of a staircase.

You can see the spot I managed to find for the house is the corner next to the dustbin.

New Project: Paper Mache Dolls’ House

15 March 2015 at 20:49 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

I’ve mentioned before how much I want a dolls’ house. Not a toy one — I do have one of those, although don’t ask how that came to be — but a proper collector’s one. And though I could afford to buy one, having more money than sense, I can’t justify spending £1000s on one (have you seen how much the furniture costs?), especially when you can make a real-life house for £150.

In any case, I still want one. I’ve actually been planning on making a paper mache tower for YEARS now. There are long panels of cardboard festering away behind my wardrobe, for seriously. But I never did get round to it. So a few weeks ago, I felt like I wanted to get on with it, so I looked up paper mache dolls’ houses online to see if anyone else had done it. And I came across only one site that mentions it, and that’s lolasminihomes. Looking at that, I learnt some tricks to making my dolls’ tower, only now I am more ambitious. Why make a tower when you can make a restaurant? Heck, why make a teeny-tiny restaurant when you can make a BIG restaurant with LIVING QUARTERS above? You see, I never do things by halves — and then set myself up for disappointment, because I always get bored halfway through and give it up. So how far do you reckon I’ll get into this project before I get bored?

The other problem with doing such a big building is WHERE THE HECK AM I GOING TO PUT IT? My room is already jam-packed and it doesn’t help that I have to share it with my two idiots — I’m talking about my birds.

Birds who will also mess all over my dolls’ house, meaning even if I do find space for it in my room, it will have to stay covered all the time just to not resemble the bottom of their cage (seriously, they can projectile poo, it’s crazy).

Anyway, just to bring this whole blog back on topic, I used Sims 2 to plan out a basic design, so here it is:

Custom Baby Memory/Record Book

11 July 2014 at 19:27 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , , )

Another baby, another book needed to save the records. The ready-made books are not really suited. It looks a bit silly when you have to cross out references to christening days and godparents and first Christmases and so on. So I thought, why not do it on the cheap and make it myself? And that way I can include only those things which will be relevant. So this is how I went from this…

babybook1

… to this:

babybookcover

So it was simply a case of making a nice-ish cover (I originally planned to cover it with brown paper, with a heart cutout, which would be lined with red shiny paper), which I made out of cheap white paper, crinkled and washed with diluted ink (the blue hue shows up only under optimal lighting conditions), then decorated with bits and bobs.

babybookcoverclose

Here are some samples of what’s inside:

babybook5
So we’ve got a place here for a scan picture, and photos of the birth day.

babybook2
A place for notes on the baby’s personality, and a family tree (very annoying making that one!)

babybook3
Favourite things, and first signs and words (I am a very big believer in teaching babies to sign).

babybook4
A month by month height and weight record, with space for photos. I did this up to 12 months.

More Doll Clothing: Millie’s Prom Dress

22 June 2014 at 14:54 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , , )

I’ve been making more stuff for the dolls:

doll-mollyandmillie

A prom dress for Millie (she’s not really Millie, she’s Florry, but never mind) and boots to match Molly’s dress.

doll-millieprom

The problem with these dolls is there is so much variation in their body size (yes, yes, I know, don’t start). I just mean that when it comes to making clothes, this prom dress fits quite snugly on Millie, but falls off Mimu because she is so scrawny.

doll-mollyboot

Here are Molly’s new boots. They only gave me one of those buttons in the pack, so she has to make do with one buttoned shoe, and one button-less.

doll-mimufairy

I’m planning on making Mimu a more mini-me-like outfit (since she is actually a mini-me from when I had pink hair :cry:) Not sure where I will get the mini chains and zips for the combats from, though :S

Last Window – Promise Lyrics

28 March 2013 at 20:22 (Artwork, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness) (, , , , , )

This was inspired by the scene in Last Window, where Kyle’s mother would look out the window while this song played. Kyle’s losing of his father reminded me of Kiki’s losing Callimachus, so I wrote some lyrics to match. I used this as an illustration in Dreamsong chapter 5, although the sentiment is more matched to a scene in chapter 4.

(Click image for full-view)

I’ve finally updated the image to match the lyrics. However, there just isn’t enough space for the full version with the additional chorus. But the rest of it matches.

I treasured the promise you made me.
It gave me
the strength to fight.
But now I grow weary of crying,
of trying
to understand.
And now…

Now I close my eyes,
I see your smile
and I’m wondering why.
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made to me,
they’re dying.
And I’m all alone
among the ruins of
our shattered dreams.

I wonder if you still remember,
together,
those dreams we had.
But now they have faded and left me
so empty,
just like your words.
But now…

Now I close my eyes,
I see you smile
and I ask myself why.
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made,
have they all died?
Am I all alone among the wreckage of
my broken heart?

Do you close your eyes
and see my smile?
Do you ask yourself why?
Why you went away,
and all the promises you made
were they all lies?
Now are you all alone among the wreckage of
your broken heart?

Okay, so as you might have noticed, one of my weaknesses (besides anatomy) when it comes to illustration is — COLOURING! I fail at colouring, although I am starting to figure things out a bit. But in any case, what I would really love is for someone to colour my fails stuffs and show me how it’s done. So here is desperate attempt for lessons #1:

‘I’m sick of this, Father. Can’t we do something else?’

‘On your feet, Kiki, come on.’

Kiki let out a growl of irritation as she heaved herself up. ‘I’m not even better from the last time,’ she complained, clutching her arm. ‘One of these days you’ll kill me with your training — and then I can think of some people what will be sorry for some things!’

Callimachus sighed. ‘If you’d only hit the stone as I told you, you wouldn’t have got hurt.’

‘And don’t bury me somewhere manky,’ Kiki continued. ‘I want somewhere with flowers, somewhere nice.’

‘Sure.’ Callimachus picked up another pebble. ‘Hold your dagger properly, come on, don’t slouch. Now for the last time, Kiki, please hit the blessed stone! Ready?’

She nodded.

Callimachus threw the pebble.

Kiki side-stepped.

‘I’m going inside.’

Chapter Two — Better than a Dream

7 March 2010 at 20:54 (Artwork, Dreamsong, Kid Icarus, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness)

I am very lucky, thought Callimachus as he watched Asteria at her spinning wheel. I have a beautiful wife, a whole island to myself and a flock of sheep that keeps growing and growing. I have everything I need, and no troubles at all.

Except maybe for Asteria’s fiery temper. Sometimes it took only the smallest thing to rile her — but that was a small price to pay for her companionship.

He’d heard in Skyworld that happiness was often hard to find for Overworlders, but he knew, and they were wrong. I am very happy, he thought. Very happy.

Suffering from NERD-RAGE!

4 February 2010 at 18:07 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , , )

Can I just say first of all, D&D 4e is absolute PANTS! I’m still waiting for my AD&D 2e Player’s Handbook to arrive, but luckily as I have Baldur’s Gate I have a good deal of info on it anyway.

Ferys

*tee hee hee* I drew handsum!

He is actually the brother of my AD&D player character. Heh. He’s the leader of his mercenary band and a difficult character to be around; he tends to look down on his rookies and have a laugh at their expense (hence the low charisma), but actually he’s a big softie deep down and really loves them all.

His pencil-and-paper stats are actually different from what I got in BG, which was just lucky. And his race is Winged (Dark Type), not human.

  • LEVEL: 1
  • STRENGTH: 16
  • INTELLIGENCE: 9
  • WISDOM: 7
  • DEXTERITY: 18
  • CONSTITUTION: 14
  • CHARISMA: 5
  • HP: 5 AC: 4 XP: +10%

I’ve started designing the basics of a campaign setting, but this was done using a mishmash of the D&D Basic Set rules and what was described of the AD&D 2e rules from the Baldur’s Gate manual, plus a couple of races and a class that I made up myself. If I come up with anything good, I’ll chuck it up for anyone who’s interested.

Nerds FTW?!!?!?!?

PS Did I mention that D&D 4e is absolute PANTS??!?

PPS I hate school.

Writing and Scribbling

31 October 2009 at 12:23 (Artwork, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness) (, )

If anyone is actually reading my Dreamsong story — and they might be you know, even if it’s just to laugh — I have finally got both chapter 2 and 3 written and — yes! — typed up. Unfortunately, a) there are probably at least 3 more chapters to go and b) it’s going to take me even longer to illustrate them. Now it’s very tempting for me to say, never mind the pictures, we’re all grown ups, we don’t need illustrations, but you know, the whole reason I even came up with this nonsense was to give me a context for my drawing lessons. Anyway if you are curious — and you might be, you know, even if it’s just to laugh — here are two pics that I have so far. It’s not much, my colouring lets me down big time.

I do think it’s safe to say I’ve got better since chapter 1, but it’s also safe to say I have a way to go yet. I need to stop being so lazy and drawing chibis. Anyway what it means is I don’t know when the chapters are actually going to be posted because I have soooooo many pics to go I’m losing my mind help!??!!?!

Paint packages, adopted brothers and moar anime!

23 April 2009 at 17:59 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , , , , , , )

I’ve decided – I am not going to bother finishing Twilight Princess. As I said before, action games are not really to my taste, and anyway – I can haz new game!!! The game I am playing right now is called Faia Emburemu – Radiant Dawn. It’s full of yummies!!

But seriously, it combines two of my favourite game genres ie RPG and strategy (my other fave is platformers – Commander Keen and Kid Icarus baby!). I’m playing on easy level since I’ve not played any previous titles, and I’m not doing too badly. I’m playing Ike’s mercenaries at the moment (IKE!! love Oscar!! love Geoffrey! love And all the other yummies! lovelove). I’ve already killed Ike’s sister twice. When do I get to go back to Daein?? I miss my sweeties!

What I am saying is, it’s an awesome game.

The only thing that’s spoiling it is something I read on a character profiles site, ie that Micaiah is going to marry Sothe who PS is her adopted brother. That’s just… wrong.

Moving swiftly on, a friend recommended watching Naruto. Well technically, I asked her about it because I keep hearing that Read the rest of this entry »

I can haz art lessons?

14 April 2009 at 22:00 (Artwork, Random Randomness) (, , )

Wo0o0o0oh0o0o0o000! My books have arrived and I am starting my manga lessons yay! The books I have are: Manga for Dummies, and How to Draw Animé and Game Characters Vol1.

Anyway as you know, one of the things that I have trouble with is profile views. Unfortunately, Manga for Dummies has little to no advice on this 😦 All you get is how to draw the basic shape for the profile of the face, and the wire frame for a full body profile view, but that’s it really. How to Draw Animé does have tips on facial views but again, hardly anything on full body profiles. So it looks like I’m on my own here 😦

The good thing is though, apart from what I said above, each book fills in the deficiencies of the other, like ie for example, How to Draw Animé doesn’t break facial structure down to basics, but Manga for Dummies does. MFD hasn’t much on different eye styles, but HTDA does. So the two together are pretty much awesome.

Anyway I still don’t have a decent pic of Apollo for the Dreamsong story. Only the one profile view (flukes FTW!) but I want a front view. So I thought, armed with these books, lemme give it another go.

copyright silver arrows 2009

Needless to say, I failed. So what started off as Apollo turned into a shojo manga style man. Well, kinda. I don’t like it.

Since I did the man, I thought I might as well make a lady to keep him company – and failed even worse! Like the bloke, I followed the tutorial in Manga for Dummies on drawing shojo – I don’t know why, I can’t imagine I’m ever going to make shojo manga, but I suppose it’s a learning experience anyway – well here she is, but I warn you, she’s not pretty!

I’m in love (again)

24 March 2009 at 22:21 (Artwork, Kid Icarus, Random Randomness) ()

I’ve been trying out this new program of Paint Tool SAI, which is an awesome paint package and I am absolutely totally in love with it. It makes increeeeedibly smooth anti-aliased lines, which you can’t get in Paint Shop Pro, and also it’s great for paint effects which is utterly brilliant if you are the kind of person who makes lots of mistakes and also can’t afford to buy real paints and paper. The problem is it is only a 31 day trial, what I am going to do when it runs out I don’t know.

Rabid fangirl is rabid! banana

pit squeee by silver arrows

I am also feeling quite utterly disillusioned with Paint Shop Pro at the moment. Firstly, if I use the graphics tablet, even on another application, I can no longer use the mouse to paint. I don’t know why, nothing happens, although the airbrush tool still works. So I have to exit and reload the application, which takes a while. Also as well, I am sick of it always crashing. Thirdly, you don’t get smooth lines like you do in SAI. I still think PSP is awesome for vectors, especially when you need to do precision stuff and might need to resize and tamper with lines a lot, but I hate the way the ends of the vector line are so blocky, you’d think they’d at least have a way to smooth the edges, but you can’t have everything I suppose.

Would anyone like to donate £40 so I can buy SAI?

What happened was, my How to Draw Anime book which I ordered last month, seems to have got lost in America somewhere – or something – anyway the upshot is, I can’t be bothered waiting for it, and £15 crumbs! So I’ve cancelled that, ordered it second hand and also ordered Manga for Dummies, which in total together, cost me about 12 quid.

Sooooo, I hope that in 2 weeks or a bit longer I should have my books, and by then I hope to be able to produce some new work and say What an improvement!

Chapter One – Where Angels Fear to Tread

17 March 2009 at 00:24 (Artwork, Dreamsong, Kid Icarus, Kid Liquorice, Random Randomness)

copyright silver arrows 2009

I always dream myself to somewhere else each night / I dream in colour, cos I live in black and white / I know I dream much more than other people do / But I can’t see / How anything can be / Better than a dream…
~ Mike Batt, Better than a Dream


Despite life’s being good, Callimachus always found something to dream about.

Aside from the squabble between Palutena and Medusa, things had been quiet in Angel Land lately. Callimachus was off-duty a fair bit these days, which gave him more time to spend at his woodwork. Right now he was carving toys for the younger angels at the Children’s House, which always earned him some brownie points. It was nice that Angel Land was at peace. But one needed some adventure.

Of course, there was always Pit.
