Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against The Dark Arts
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Cucumber Melon Cold Soup
Brief Description: This is the season where my allergies make me feel like I have been hit in the head with a sledge hammer, so I am constantly looking for things to sooth my sore throat and achy sinuses. Especially things that are comforting without the excessive use of medication. So I came up with this cold soup I put peeled cucumber, cantaloupe, agave nectar, fresh mint leaves, and fresh basil leaves in a blender with some ice and blended it until smooth. If you make this don't be shy with the mint and basil their aromatic qualities are a big part of why it is so soothing, and also If you want to cut back on the sugar content (which I had to do) just put a few table spoons of Agave Nectar and then some splenda packets. That way you still get the soothing texture of the agave nectar but it is lighter in the sugar and calorie department. In the end this cold soup was very delicious, and incredibly soothing. I will definitely be making this again in the summer when it is 100 degrees outside! This fits the Defense Against the Dark Arts class because of it's cucumber content, and the fact that Kappas are dark and dangerous creatures but are great luck if you are able to befriend one and the best way to befriend one is to invite it to dine with you and serve it cucumber dishes, so this cold soup would be the perfect appetizer to a feast of cucumber sushi on a hot summer afternoon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux: Marvolo Gaunt's Ring
House:Slytherin
Project Name: Phoenix Feather In Memory Of Dumbledore
Brief Description: Everyone knows that Dumbledore loved his Phoenix, Fawkes, dearly and that the symbolism of the Phoenix is central to not only Dumbledore's character but Harry Potter's character and the over arching theme of the series in general. The Idea of rising from the ashes and allowing yourself to be reborn after difficult times is one of the things that inspired me most about the Harry Potter series. With that in mind I made an illustration of a Phoenix feather. I drew it in black ink and colored it with prismacolor pencils.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux: Helga Hufflepuff's Cup
House:Slytherin
Project Name: Hufflepuff Badger Drawing
Brief Description: When drawing the Phoenix feather I did for the above project I had such a good time and seemed to be on a roll with drawing in that style so I continued by drawing this badger drawing in honor of Hufflepuff. Their mascot is the badger and that house is very much drawn to earthy and natural pursuits like Herbology, so I included lots of plant life in the drawing as well. I made sure to accent the black ink drawing with yellow for Hufflepuff pride!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux: Harry Potter
House:Slytherin
Project Name: Water Lily paintings
Brief Description: By now everyone has seen ErinAquaheart's owl where she spent over 90 hours painting a koi pond, well she was kind enough to let me have a small hand in that project by letting me paint the water lilies. The lilies evolved over time and one of the ones I loved actually had to be erased with acetone so that I could paint all of them in the final style, but luckily I got pictures of both styles.
Project Picture:
First the one that had to be erased:




This one is the final style, it's mainly blue but some are pink as well:

72  Little Dinosaur Illustration in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by TechnicolorAquahearts on: February 19, 2013 06:41:09 AM
I have been working on a few smaller projects lately to try different subject matter and to get better in general, so in that experimentation I came up with this little guy:



The pic is a little muddy, sorry about that, but I think you can see most of the details, the colors are a little more vibrant in real life.

Here are some process pics, because I love to see the stages of progress! It's cool to look back it see how it transformed from a sketch to a fully colored illustration.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Horcrux: Nagini
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Little Dinosaur Painting
Brief Description: Since Nagini is a reptile his distant relatives were the dinosaurs, so when I got the inspiration to make something dinosaur related I made this painting so I could destroy something as scary as Nagini with something as cute as this little guy.

Project Name: Freshly juiced Green juice blend
Brief Description: We have been wanting to use juicing to better our health for a long time and just haven't been able to afford a juicer, well yesterday and awesome friend of ours gifted us a juicer so, I had to try it right away! I used beet, apple, celery, lemon, spinach, and cucumber.

75  Wild Encounters: A scrapbook page from about Disney's Animal Kingdom in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by TechnicolorAquahearts on: February 17, 2013 11:49:57 AM
I have been to Disney World twice now with my girlfriend and have yet to scrapbook any of it  Angry So, I got started by making this page of all the characters we met at Disney's Animal Kingdom. We find it exceptionally fun to meet characters and act along with them. It's akin to the kind of fun we have when we go to re-in-actor parks and try and make the re-in-actors laugh.

76  Sock Dog in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by TechnicolorAquahearts on: February 17, 2013 11:40:50 AM
I made this sock dog for ErinAquaheart for valentine's day. It was the first time I have made anything besides a monkey out of socks, and I think it turned out cute! The eye caused a tear in the fabric so I stitched him up and gave him a scar, which gave him some street cred.  Grin

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Astronomy
House:Slytherin
Project Name:A sock dog to represent "the companion star" for my companion.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Hand Beaded Skull Bows
Brief Description: I chose to do a project inspired by the tasseomancy symbol of the skull. So I hand beaded some skulls (which took forever!) and constructed some bows with some awesome ribbon I got on sale for 2 for $1 right after Halloween.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Tom Riddle's Diary Horcrux
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Scrapbook page
Brief Description: Scrapbooks are a type of diary so I made a scrapbook page. I have hundreds of scrapbook pages lined up to make but I never have the time to sit down and do them all.
Project Picture:



The scrapbook page is from when ErinAquaheart, MommaAquaheart, and I went to Disney World in June of 2011. It was so awesome to be able to take a vacation all together like that! Definitely worth recording those memories!

Oh my gosh, I have been stuck in the hospital wing with a stubborn case of Strep and I haven't been able to keep up with everything! I have been lurking and seeing everyone's awesome assignments! There are so many I couldn't begin to comment on them all, but all of you are so talented! I am so lucky to have such inspiring classmates.

Audio - Yay! Another Slytherin! I absolutely love everything I have seen you post on craftster so I am really excited to see what you post in here Smiley

Finally I have been able to finish up some projects to post on here. It feels great to be creative again after being sick for what seemed like forever.


   
Class/Challenge/House Pride:House Pride
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Slytherin house scarf
Brief Description: This scarf is just a straight forward house color scarf in the first year style with tassels at each end. It is in green and silvery grey for Slytherin house. It normally takes me only a day or two to complete a scarf but this one took forever!

Project Picture:



Sorry about the extreme closeup, I wanted to post it but I couldn't find a great place to take a picture if it that wouldn't show my messy craft area so I opted for the closeup situation.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans ear wax challenge
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Princess Bubblegum fan art earrings
Brief Description: These little dangle earrings are hand drawn and colored. They are made out of Shrinky Dink and feature one of my favorite cartoon characters: Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time!

Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride:Flying
House:Slytherin
Project Name:Painting To Illustrate New Enchantment For Owls To Increase Visibility By Making Them Brightly Colored
Brief Description: This painting I made is to illustrate a new spell that makes owls very brightly colored so when flying with their wizard companions they may serve as a highly visible beacon and warn against crashing. Flying safety is always a boring subject for young witches and wizards so maybe having a spell that involves turning their owl outrageous colors will make them more interested in safe flying.
