1  Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 in The Swap Gallery by seeuudee on: August 18, 2014 11:25:13 AM
Received pieces from Hazelly - we agreed to do an extra piece, so I have three to share.

I love these two pieces for my chocolate and turquoise puzzle - I can't stop stroking the fuzzy one!

And a really lovely piece for my artists choice puzzle.

Thank you, I love them all

VVB and I agreed to do two extra pieces, so I have 4 to share with you.

Two from my chocolate and turquoise puzzle - these both add such a fun touch to the puzzle (the background on the first one is actually a chocolate brown)

And two from my artists choice puzzle - love these two pieces so much

Yay, first to post! I actually received Monday, but waited to open my parcel (yes, it almost killed me!!  Wink) until I had finished Samsara's parcel, taken photos and packaged it up. I posted it yesterday, so opened up my parcel yesterday evening. Hope you have your pinning fingers ready - I love everything!

First up, a lovely wand - Hazel with a Unicorn Hair centre.

Next, a divination notebook from Flourish and Blotts, my favourite shop. It automatically records notes during class, so handy.

And last, but certainly no means least, a glass that shows off my house pride - can't wait to try the automatic refill feature  Grin I could not get a decent picture of this - Samsara, if you have a better one, please add it to show it off in all of it's amazing glory. You are so talented! I feel honoured to own one of your glasses.

There were a couple of extras - a cute expecto patronum bracelet

a seemingly magical, but actually muggle, notebook (side note - these things are horrible to try and photo!)

and my acceptance letter to Hogwarts, accompanied by the books and equipment list.

Thank you Samsara for an amazing swap and thank you AmazingAlex for organising us all.

From Camezzo, an amazing cat and hufflepuff pride:

From GoldenSunshine, inspirational words and chocolate:

From rscowtown, two chocolate and turquoise pieces:

Thank you, I love them all and they are great additions to my puzzles.

Love the little bird - so cute and I love the watercolour effect.

My second one is 2" by 1" and is completely done in backstitch. I really love the idea of getting a tattoo, but have never been able to settle on one design I like for more than a couple of days. This stinchie is to honour that - a seahorse is always on the list of possibilities!  Grin

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity (Hope I have got this right - I have not submitted a project for the house challenge before. Undecided)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Slytherin travel embroidery case
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433197.msg5209219#msg5209219
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
I recently took part in the Harry Potter Box Swap and crafted for a Slytherin. I was a little "loose" on the definition of a box - well, a travel embroidery case is used for storage.  Grin I just winged the pattern - kinda made it up as I went along. The crest images were printed directly onto the fabric - I am so pleased with how they came out. Took a bit of experimenting to get the ink levels right and the setting afterwards. I also chose fabric that was in Slytherin colours.

Project Picture:
(I have shamelessly stolen my partners photos - they were so much better than mine!)

Front - Slytherin crest

Back - Hogwarts crest

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy (can I also claim House Unity, as these are in Slytherin colours?)
SPEW: na
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Tiny canvases
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: I crafted these for the Harry Potter Box Swap, to show the various loves of my partner. There are 3 stands, 3 canvases and 3 sets of decoration, totaling 9 elements. The canvases are around 2.5" by 3.5". My partner loved Dobby, moaning Mrytle, the marauders map, the castle paintings and her house is Slytherin, so the colourings are green and silver.

First embroidered inchie done.

I do have a grid drawn out on the back. The photo makes the fabric look a lot darker than it actually is - it is a light cream in colour.

This one is my first one playing with the idea of stitched zentangles - I wish I had planned it out a bit more, rather than just winging it! And I really need to learn to keep my stitching in a straighter line!  Undecided

It contains: running stitch, double running stitch (also called holbein), seed/rice grain, laced running stitch, parallel running stitch, darning stitch and whipped running stitch. The border is called eskimo laced (which uses running stitch as its base) - I am planning to do a border on edge squares where I find a stitch that lends itself to it.

Not all squares are going to be patterns, I am going to put some images in as well. I also think I may try a zentangle with a single colour, rather than a single colour range.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Daisy Chain
Project Page Link (if available): Tutorial and free printable can be found here - http://www.craftedblog.com/2014/01/diy-paper-daisy-chain.html
Brief Description:
The Daisy, or Bellis Perennis, has long been my favourite flower, so much so that when my friend got married and decided on flowers as table names, made sure that I was on the Daisy table! I have also always loved making daisy chains, but hate the fact that they wilt so quickly.

I have a great summer hat that looks really good with a daisy chain wrapped around it, so I decided to make this artificial one instead of keep killing innocent daisies! The only problem is that they look more like the larger oxeye daisy, still pretty, but kinda take over the hat, so I may need to make a set at about half the size. Each daisy is almost 2" across. The centers are covered in small yellow beads. They are threaded on green embroidery thread.

The daisy can be used in spells relating to the following matters - beauty, compassion, fidelity, friendship, happiness, interchanges, joy, love, luck, meditation, pleasure, reconciliation, and youth. Made into a tea, the daisy is considered to have astringent, demulcent, expectorant, digestive, emollient and tonic properties. Finally, decorate the house with daisies at Midsummer's Eve to bring happiness to the home and to obtain the blessings of faeries. Such amazing properties for such a simple little flower!
