Subject: August detention
House: Slytherin
Description: quilted hello kitty coasters for my house.



This prompt includes two of the coasters pictured. The other two were turned in for a different project.

Subject: apparition
House: Slytherin
Description: hello kitty skirt and matching bow.

I enjoyed this hello kitty fabric so much! I was able to make this skirt and bow as well as the coasters that were previously posted. This project fits the class because the skirt and bow are a set of things that are linked by the matching fabric and are meant to be worn together.





Please note that the small bow in the above picture is not included in this prompt as I will be turning it in for another class.

Subject: astronomy
House: Slytherin
Description: warm orange halloween bow

This bow reminds me of the warm orange sun on beautiful autumn days. It also matches my new halloween skirt that I turned in earlier.



Subject: Flying
House: Slytherin
Description: Small bow for Erin

Erin has much shorter hair than I do so a smaller bow was in order for her. She wanted a matching bow for her skirt too. She made one just like mine Smiley This bow can be seen in the picture with two bows earlier in this post and fits the prompt because it is small and is under the "3x"5 inch limit.

Description: a rockstar welcome poster

My friend came to visit me on his vacation so I made an excessive sign to give him a rockstar welcome at the airport, I mean you should be your bff's biggest fan, right?


Subject: quidditch: Flacking
House: Slytherin
Description: cityscape skirt

Another example of what happens when I get a job at a fabric store! I made this skirt without a pattern just using my measurements.



Subject: Quidditch: quafflepocking
House: Slytherin
Description: Altered and stenciled tshirt

This project is the shirt in the picture posted for my previous post and it fits the prompt because I altered a plain t-shirt to better fit my needs. I freezer paper stenciled it using tulip color shots fabric spray paint and I love how it turned out. The glitter I layered on top of the spray paint kind of looks like sparkles in pavement which goes perfectly with the city theme of the outfit.

House: Slytherin
Description: traditional 4 patch quilted coasters.

What happens when I get a job at a fabric store? Quilting. Quilting happens. Lol, anyway there are a lot of things I need to learn about quilting so these little coasters took me all day! They are a part of a whole set of projects I made with this fabric. Because this took me a while I am turning in TWO of the four in the picture for this prompt and I will turn the other two in for another one.



Subject: quidditch: referee
House: Slytherin
Description: Halloween ruffle skirt.

This project fits the prompt because I hate gathering. This skirt had a lot of gathering! It was worth it though because now I have a whimsical outfit for the Halloween season!



If you would like to make a similar skirt, it's super easy: here's the pattern:

I have kind of been MIA around the castle this semester because I am adjusting to a new job and I have had a lot of other projects going on but I have been keeping up with my homework so I have tons of projects to turn in!

Subject: quidditch: try outs
House: Slytherin
Project: elephant nursery painting
Description: this little 6x6 painting of an elephant is for Erin's cousin who just had a baby girl. Erin saw the paintings I made for my cousin last term and thought that it would be a nice addition to the baby blanket that she made to include a set of my elephant paintings.



This one is the first in a series of three.

Subject: quidditch: chaser
House: Slytherin
Description: Freezer paper stenciled dinosaur baby bibs.

Speaking of cousins and babies I made these stenciled bibs for my cousin and her baby. There are three of them in the set so they meet the requirement.

Oh I meant to include some process pics in the owl I just turned in.
 

Since progress in an owl was a quidditch prompt I'll go ahead and use this opportunity to turn that in:

Subject: quidditch Haversacking
House: Slytherin
Project: at least 30 minutes progress on my owl

Here are two process pics showing a couple of hours of work on my spiky sound machine painting.




And then here are some process pics from one of the other paintings I turned in for my owl:

COMPLETED OWL
Subject: potions
House: Slytherin
Project: Spiky Sound Machine Series

My proposal was to expand on my Spiky Sound Machine series of paintings by working a little larger and including lots of different colors, textures, and patterns to increase the depth and detail of my work. I feel I accomplished those objectives with the three paintings I am turning in below. They are still pretty small one of them 8x8 and the other two 12x12 but that is an increase from the previous ones. In the first 12x12 one that I finished I experimented with lots of patterns and textures. I used spray paint to create a flecked or spattery texture and pattern that is underlying through the whole piece and I also used some high flow acrylic paint to look like drips dripping through the painting. On the second 12x12 painting I simplified a bit and tried to focus more on depth and visual impact. I still experimented with lots of textures by using the high flow acrylic to make a pattern that resisted the watercolor and had a nice effect. I also included some wood grain like lines to create texture. On this second one I feel I really improved in my ability to create space in my painting.

Here's the 8x8:


Here's the first 12x12 I completed:


Here's the second 12x12:


The 8x8 took about 8 hours in three sittings, the 12x12's each took at least 36 hours in 8-10 sittings.

I am SO excited to be able to post this. For the FIRST time in my career in this craftalong I am able to turn in an OWL. This year has been a remarkable year for me in the terms of productivity and general life functioning. A little over a year ago I began treatment for narcolepsy and slowly everything in my life began to change. I am able to complete more complicated projects and make progress in my art and music that I've never been able to make before. Anyway, my ability to focus on larger projects that may take more than one sitting to complete has drastically improved. It's no secret that ErinAquaheart and I have gone through some trying times over the years that we have been participating, and this community has really helped keep us going through many, many challenges in life.

~*COMPLETED OWL*~
OWL Subject & Option (if available): Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Muggle Fairy tale Art Toy Series

Over all of the time that I have had to work on this I have gone through several incarnations of my concept. I originally saw myself working with a wider variety of materials, including an original cast resin edition, and some vinyl figures, but our circumstances being what they are when it came down to execution I had to stick with the materials I had on hand, therefore all of my pieces are folk dolls. I did however focus on trying to explore different techniques involving textiles. With The Cowardly lion I saw what it was like to just draw on fabric like I would on paper and I attempted to give him a sort of sketchy look like he was a doodle come to life. With the lion I Also explored painting with dyes instead of thicker paint, but I also used some dimensional paint and some glow in the dark paint. I then experimented with stitching to create a pattern on him. I'm pretty happy with how he tuned out. He is around 12x18 inches. With Glinda, I wanted to definitely come up with my own concept for her; maintaining her identity as a character without ripping off other designs. With her I tried out thicker paint on the fabric and went for a more illustrative quality to the drawing than I did with the lion. I added texture by crocheting layers of lace for the bottom of her skirt.












Here's my preliminary sketch for Glinda: you can see how she changed as I went along.



I wanted to make sure I covered two different time periods so for my next group of them I chose Snow White and Rose Red. I wanted the look of these to be more stylized and minimal in contrast to the sort of blingy Wizard of Oz ones. To achieve this I went with print carving. I had so much fun carving the print blocks that it inspired me to use more print making techniques in a wide range of art. The ink came out a little lighter than I anticipated on the fabric but I kept it because I liked how ghost like they looked, but if I were making a play set for a child or to be handled by many people I would find a different ink.











Above I showed the process of drawing the design, carving the blocks, and the test prints, Which I was so happy with. I really can't wait to use my carved blocks with other things. And here are my little folk dolls:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Koi Pond Easter Egg ATC, This project fits the assignment because of the suit of cups being associated with the element of water.







Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Court Jester Easter Egg ATC, This project fits the assignment because you know an Easter egg that looks like that is bound to contain a joke or two!







Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Art Easter Egg Hunt ATCs, These fit the assignment because one way to make your class work more exciting is to make a game out of it and give yourself something to hunt for in the material. These are some of he ATCs that I made for an "Easter egg hunt" Where I randomly hid ATCs of easter eggs around my town for people to find. This was one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences I have had with my creative projects in a long time!







Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Sci Fi Alien Creature Easter Egg ATC, This project fits the assignment because it represents an egg that some kind of fantastical creature would hatch from that would be found on a world or a different time period that would be depicted in a Sci Fi movie.







Class/Challenge/House Pride:Study of Ancient Runes
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Spiky Sound Machine Painting Series, This project fits the assignment of exploring personal sigils because in these paintings I have explored bright color, sound, and the energy of creating and sharing in the creation of self expression. I have always felt that bright colors, music, and the energy shared when people get together in a group to experience art or music, are things that represent who I am and are parts of who I am. I chose an abstract visual vocabulary to create these paintings so that they could look like runes or symbols that communicate an experience.












Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Easter Egg ATC's These fit the assignment because they got large results from minimal supplies. All they took were some left over watercolor paper scraps and some watercolors to create many bold and colorful paintings that were then shared with many people through an art abandonment easter egg hunt.













Class/Challenge/House Pride: March Detention
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Skin Cell Abstraction Painting, This fits in to the March Prompt because I have been working on accumulating panels for this large work over time, so its kind of always a new project and a WIP at the same time. In this picture it is the fourth one in the bottom right corner. I posted the picture of all of them because I have posted several of these and I wanted to show that the are indeed all separate paintings.






Class/Challenge/House Pride: Head Mistress Challenge + SPEW
SPEW: SPEW
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Elephant Painting Collection for baby's room, one elephant painting that was left for an expectant or new mother at planned parenthood. What better symbol for fertility is there than a new baby, or a gift for that new baby. Also I messed up on the green one for some reason I made the belly line different than the other two so I made one that matched and kept the odd one out and left it in the lobby of planned parenthood for a low income mother to have for her baby, making it a SPEW project.











And the SPEW one:

It's been a little while since I have been around the castle, but I have been a very busy Slytherin:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Robot Easter Egg ATC, This project fits the assignment because Easter egg hunts are always fun and make people happy, and robots are also fun and make people happy. Little whimsies like these make life more comfortable because they break up the monotony.








Class/Challenge/House Pride:Arithmancy
SPEW:
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Circus Seal Easter Egg ATC This project fits the assignment because it substitutes an art egg for a real egg in an easter egg hunt. It also substitutes an artistic representation of circus colors and a cute seal for a real animal being exploited by a circus leaving all of the cute but none of the abuse.








Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against The Dark Arts
SPEW:
House:Slytherin
Project Name: National Poetry Month poem and illustrations. This project fits the assignment because I have always wanted to write more and be a better writer but I have been afraid to let my words come out on paper because I felt self conscious about them. I have been using this month (National Poetry Month) to help myself get over my fears by writing and even reading in public as much of my own poetry as possible. I have had a great experience this month with writing more than I have in a long time and finding ways to share it with the world while making no judgements on myself.
