who's who

just sat what kind of art/ craft your interested and what you'd like to learn more about.

User: Snorlax

Art interests: general painting, clay, Ms paint (click on my sig for sample) and graphic programs, costume design, card making, performing arts, pastels/ watercolours/ acrylics/ technical pens/ charcoal.

have also worked as a voluntary illustrator with the Irish Wildlife Trust and got some of my technical sketches of wildlife skteches published.

am currently interested in dynamic art/ helping with costume making at festivals.

also did art for the leaving and nearly did it at third level but wound up doing occupational therapy in TCD (don; ask!)

would like to learn more about practical crafts, eg things that can be used for everyday purposes, like handmade greeting cards/ bookmarks, and also traditional crafts and painting (especially love to learn to do scenery paintings of the west of ireland)

User: Bond-007 well actually this is Mrs-Bond!

I am a scrapper! Give me fantastic photos papers & glue & I am away! I have even scrapped onto a canvas to make my scrapping into wall art too






The last picture is my canvas which was painted first with accrylic paint & then embellished.

I also make card, do some beading jewellery but scrapping is a way of life now days!

i've tried my hand at everything, but concentrate mostly on oils, watercolours, photoshop, pen and ink, and even 3d things in autocad, sketchup etc.
actually just finished an oil, started an oil and am midway through another.

At the moment I do alot of drawings, graphic designs and have begun to carve wax....

I am a painter of the face! And sometimes might knot an auld beard or tache. That's my day job...

Other than that I just doodle a lot. Do a lot of life drawing from my head. Use anything from acrylic, coloured pencils, chalk, pastels, pencil. Make interesting picture frames when I've the time. The odd bit of jewellery. Design dresses and hats.

I get into weird moods and decide on doing something and then have to do it.

I've kind of fallen out of my creative side.. and would really like to get back into it. It's been a few years since I painted or sketched.. which I would have dreamt impossible..

Think I need a bit of order.. would love to join a class or something.. to really get back into it properly, as I don't have the motivation to sit down at home like I used to. The only thing I have been doing recently is working with beads and jewellery making..

I sometimes mess about with a bit of knitting, but my main crafty hobby is cross stitch. I started earlier this year and have got quite into it. It's not as useful as knitting, but it's more about the making than the finished product for me - it's great for emptying my head great that boards have a craft board now too!

Hi all, I'm pretty new here. I'm one of a dying breed of knitters. I started in school age 7 and took it back up a few years ago. I was really into baby things, mostly due to a baby boom among my friends. now i'm trying lots of new things-funky hats, dolls...

I'm studyin' art in NCAD at the moment, hoping to specialise in either Painting or Ceramics so thats paints and clay down,I have a great interest in photography, and love experimenting in different mediums. I love sketching too, charcoal would be my weapon of choice, otherwise, ink or pencils do the trick just as good. Got into digital imagery last year, but not as advanced in it as I'd like to be!

exactly the same as .... it so hard to get the motivation to start on something new.... I've gotten into Silver clay which is, well silver in a clay form... you fire it and bingo it's silver! it's a real expensive hobby though.... but i'd love to get into painting/sculpting anything again with the same enthusiasm again.... i'm getting worried i'll lose the talent if i don't pick it up again

My favorite activities are scrapbooking and jewelry making. A friend introduced me to jewelry about 2 years ago and I would love to learn some more techniques. I also enjoy card making and usually make homemade cards for family.

I do a bit of everything, from sewing to jewellery making to painting to collage, I just like to try to be crafty/creative in every way I can. If I can think of a way to make something rather than buy it, I will. I have to point out this brilliant website which I spend far too much time on, www.craftster.org.
