Woohoo! After weeks and weeks of only being able to glance at what's going on, I finally had the opportunity to read each post. You lot have been creative! And busy! I'm ready to contribute to this semester, at last.
Project Name: Ridiculously Tiny Herbology Classroom
Brief Description: I remembered the three D's of Apparition during construction of this greenhouse. Destination: Herbology class. Determination: to go as micro as my old eyes could handle. Deliberation: the selections of natural plants and their placement was purposeful. The greenhouse was done in three stages: 1. Plan 2. Construct 3. Recover ocularly.
Project Name: Mini Mouse (ha.)
Brief Description: Tackling the unknown. Hmmm. I don't know polymer clay. At all. I usually burn the bejesus out of it and we have to evacuate for a few hours. I chose to attempt the medium again, this time in the form of a speckish rat. After painstakingly sculpting it with a toothpick, I baked it, then painted it in a semi-realistic way. (Stand back and squint. You'll see how remarkably real it is.)
Project Name: Wizard's Desk
Brief Description: This project began as an approximately 2.5" x 4" salvaged wood block. It was covered in paper (wood!), given some mini books made from paper and cereal boxes (more wood), and then given legs from a mini figure drawing model (yep, wood...but you'll have to trust me because I took the photos before adding them). There's even a (wooden) toothpick wand. Again, trust me it is there.
Here's a link to it since the images are on another computer: Wizard's Desk

Project Name: Hooo You Lookin' At?!
Brief Description: Look! It's an owl! Something went wrong during the spell and I ended up with my very first free motion embroidery piece instead of opera glasses. Gotta work on that.
There's a bit more but it seems my mother senses are tingling and I must investigate. It's way too quiet right now...
