Peep Show!

How’d ya like my title??? Let me start off by saying, I had NO idea how to correctly photograph this project. And it’s a shame…because it’s pretty damn cool. My sis who’s a photography pro wasn’t around to aid me in this…so I’m gonna try and snag her to retake these dreadful photos.

Now that that’s out of the way…I started to play with my Nymphs stamp set from Smeared Ink. And I cam up with what I thought was a fabulous (and funny!) idea. You can let me know what you think…

So I painted this little box. I used some branches from the Tree Nymph and a few dabs of Distress Stickles in Peeled Paint…you’ll see a detail shot in a minute. But wait? What’s that blotch on top of the glass???

Why, it’s the dress the Tree Nymph is wearing! And look…there she is down at the bottom of the box! Hello down there!!! I guess she’s feeling a little self conscious…wait a second…maybe not…

Gasp! She’s taking off her dress!!! The glass panel in the box slides out so you can put your treasures inside.

And here she is in all her glory!!!

Here’s a different angle so that you can see the glass.

So??? Funny right? It’s a Nymph Peep Show!!! Hope you got a good laugh! Have an inspiring day!!!

PS: After seeing the first few comments, I saw just what the other girls were talking about! It SO doesn't look like that in person! I promise, it's a dress...not a big penis!!! Again, my photos are pretty crummy, and the colors didn't come up as well as they should have... But, I do think it's pretty funny that that's what everyone else saw! Thanks for the laugh, everyone!!!

That is so funny I love it and I agree with the other girls I didn't realize that was a dress at first either, guess were all gutter minds. That or the dress is just made to look like something else, lol. You made my Friday with this. I can't wait to see what else you make. I just poped over here Im going to take a peek around here but I love your work.

OMG, this totally made me laugh cuz I sooo thought the dress was something else as well. A little old & withered & crooked but nonetheless, that's what I saw...OMG, I'm still giggling - I love it btw, it's awesome now that I know what it is...;)

LOL! I have to confess, at first glimpse I saw something different and started to think that I was some sort of kooky weirdo until I got to the end of your post and I was relieved to find out it wasn't just me ;D I guess I'm a normal weirdo...LMAO! Now I totally see the dress and I LOVE the idea of the peep show box! So incredibly clever and amazing!

...and in local news:

"Sisters and owners of Smeared Ink Stamps engage in shenanigans regarding phalec imagery in art".

One witness claims that Tori sites the specimen to be "hard" and "fun to play with". When hearing her sister's response, Terra could only say, "Ick! I'd hate to be on the end of that one...kinda wrinkly and old looking".

Our investigations revealed that Terra is the culprit behind the creation of said image even though artist and Smeared Ink Design Team Member, Alison, was responsible for the upwards animation of the image in question.

What is going on with Smeared Ink? Is it a pre-requisite for members to be depraved? Or is it merely a side effect of inhaling the vapors of their rubber stamps and ink?

More details at eleven.
Okay, y'all just made my night! Great comments :)

Alison, this is stunning! I love this lil treasured box! Beautiful job and all those details, breathtaking! You go girl :)

hugs, margie

What an amazing peepshow box. I love the distressing and the effect is awesome.

I too failed to see a dress. I was thinking you were making a very saucy craft project indeed :-)

I didn't see a penis until I read your note, which is funny because I actually see penises everywhere :). This is a very cool project!
Barb said…
This is so clever, Alison :) Very fun project... and I DO see what everyone was talking about ;)

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
