Reliving the Past

Since I haven’t updated with any new projects in a while (I haven’t even been to the markets the past 2 weeks) I thought I would put up some of my older projects that I have done.

Christmas has just passed and here are a couple of things that I made up for gifts.
Now I've always been a huge Commander Keen fan as has my bf. I got real excited one night when I came up with the idea to make a painting of the signs that you find throughout the first games where you get a raygun.

While I couldn't get it exactly the same in my image (I had to work with what I had at home as I only had one week before Christmas) I think I didn't do to bad. You at least get the idea. I went searching around town for a watergun that would be able to pass as the raygun but to my dismay I never found any. I ended finding a toy gun (one of those ones that spark when you pull the trigger) and painted it up as close as I could get it to the original. Luckily the shape of the gun I found worked a treat in the end.

Here it is hanging on our wall. 
The next picture was for my bf's lil sister. His whole family adore sonic as they all grew up with it. Since I was still going through my "shrink plastic is the bomb" phase I did up a couple of cool earrings for her.

Last one now is of a bracelet I made for my lil bro. I had been going nuts on my beading loom a few months before. I have all these space invader bracelets made up but I am being too lazy to finish the ends off because I hate doing that part. My brother was over one day and saw the rainbow one and exclaimed how awesome it was so I got my act together and finished one off for him.
