Chimney Sweep

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 7:40 AM 0 comments
This little gem is based off of Andersen's fairy tale, The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep. They are both two little porcelain figures that are in love with each other. She is not allowed to marry him because her father, the Chinese porcelain figure, forbids it. This scene is the part where they run off together and climb up to the rooftop.

I made this a little while ago. I was going to make it as a Template Tuesday, but it was too complicated to explain. I would like to do more three dimensional pieces. Hope you like it!

Template Tuesday - Zombies

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 10:40 PM 0 comments

So, some of my co-workers have put together a zombie political organization in hopes of truly bringing in some new brrraaainnnnns to the candidacy this voting season. If you're interested in joining go to votezombie.com and sign up - or at least click like on their facebook page. I made a few zombies for them that I don't think they're going to use, so you guys can. They are pretty great. I don't know what you'd use them in - maybe blow them up, stick them in a window - that seems to be all the rage nowadays.

Template Tuesday - I Vant To Suck Your Blahd!

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 8:38 PM 0 comments
Hey everyone! I'll bet you thought I forgot about you. I totally did. I went and fell in love with this really awesome guy and completely threw all blogging responsibilities to the wind. I will try to be a little more proactive. Or at least lay down strict rules that I need to make a Template Tuesday at least twice a month.

That said, I have an important thing to discuss. It's come to my attention that some of my templates are being used for commercial gain without my consent. I realize that I haven't put up any kind of messages saying not to do that, but I figured if someone wanted to sell some artwork, they'd want to sell some of their own. Obviously that's not the case and I would just like to make it clear that these templates are for personal use only. They are not to be used on your etsy site, they are not to be used in the cards you sell at a farmer's market, they are not to be used as your own templates to sell - stuff like that. They are to be used to give to your mom, to put up in your kid's room, to practice for yourself - stuff like that. If there's a gray area, like you want to put them on your cd or use them in a publication with credits, send me an email, I will be very accommodating.

So, now that that's over, here's a Halloween Template Tuesday to mess around with. Last Saturday we went to see Off Broadway Theatre's Dracula vs. Jekyll and Hyde. It was an excellent production, very kid friendly, so if you're in the Salt Lake area, try to give it a look-see. My favorite character in the production was Count Dracula. So charming. I thought I'd do a simple Dracula template for the holiday and in honor of the Count. Happy Cutting!

Here he is, about to suck some blood. He loves the ladies. Here's what the template will look like:
