1  The Burrow in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by alteredmommy on: April 10, 2015 05:32:04 PM
Recently I was partnered up with the fabulous Mistress Jennie in the Be Awesome (Redux) Swap.  While checking out her Pinterest I saw that she had an entire board devoted to the Burrow - the Weasley's home in the Harry Potter tales for the 2 people in the world who aren't familiar Cheesy  Coincidentally the Burrow is one of my personal favourites as well so I instantly had a wonderful idea to render it sort of 3Dish out of paper.  I don't have any inprogress pictures unfortunately, it was A LOT of cutting and glueing.  and a little artistic license Cheesy   Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, Mistress Jennie has way better ones in the Be Awesome swap gallery

in a repurposed shadow box, that I lined with tissue pattern paper and painted.  The sky is painted with watercolours

one side.  The top addition is painted watercolour paper with coloured pencil on top to make the boards.  The roof pieces/window frames were all made from collage paper that I made and painted.  The windows are resin paper.

This side shows more of the wonky 3D-ishness

The bottom house of the Burrow was made out of cardboard covered with pattern paper that I gel mediumed on.  Then covered with Golden fiber paste, painted and weathered. 

I kind of want to make all the things out of paper and glue now Grin

I received a wonderful package today from my partner Mistress Jennie!!  It is the most awesome chandelier made from an upcycled wire basket hung with all kinds of delicious beads, crystals, metal bits, buttons and even a skeleton key!!!  I took a million pictures and these were the best of the lot, our grey snowy day is not doing any justice to this fabulous piece....if you have some better pictures Mistress Jennie please feel free to post them!

This one shows the top

The bottom

Hanging in its new home in my painting room window!

It looks fantastic in my window, thank you so much Mistress Jennie you rock Grin

I love all the hat inspiration in this thread!  This may be the year I actually go forth and colourwork (after I go forth and sock of course alwaysinmyroom Grin)  Here's my first hat of the year, I went a little crazy with blocking but will give it to my sister who has giant hair so all is well.

This gallery is starting to explode with fantastical creations!  And I get to add the amazing curiosities that my lovely partner cmarion3 sent me Smiley

First off I present the Begging Machine in all its awesomeness!  Its full of cool little details (arm! eye! wheels! windy thing!) I LOVE this so much!

back and other side

Next up is the Flying Hand Butterfly "Manus Volatilis" Smiley

and a neat box of fossils and extra arms!  and I'll note the boxes are pretty cool as well with little bits of ephemera on them Smiley

Thank you so much for the awesome package cmarion3!  This is a wicked good start to my collection of curiosities Grin

just added a bunch of washers (and random stuff) to my shop.  I will likely include more stuff if my trip to the son's garage is fruitful...he has a box of junk put aside for me Grin  there's a quarter near the top for reference, these were all of the big washers I could find, plus some old perm rods (from those electric perm machines) just because I'm curious as to what someone would do with them.
