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.

Owl subject: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Description: crocheted afghan

I have always enjoyed crocheting but I have never stuck with a larger project so for my OWL I would like to work on my focus and ability to see things through by transfiguring a large amount of yarn into an afghan for myself. I plan on make the giant granny square type and am not aiming for a particular bed size just be plenty big for me to curl up in. Definitely a blanket not just a throw size.

Subject: quidditch: bumphing
House: Slytherin
Description: Birthday cookies to enjoy during the match

Subject: quidditch: cobbing
House: Slytherin
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:

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.

NEWT Subject: Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Elements of Nature Art Series
Description: Alright, Waaaaay back in the Winter of 12/13 I proposed an OWL and it was a gargantuan proposal in terms of the amount of work proposed. I ended up suspending it with the intention of picking it up as a NEWT later. However, the volume of work is still very large for a single NEWT, so my proposal is the following resurrected from Winter of 12/13 with the caveat that I will complete a sufficient amount of work that is more than fair for NEWT credit but may not be as much as is listed below. I will also claim time already served and work already completed when I turn it in. 

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: 4 week intensive study of drawing resulting in a series of finished works based on the elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water.
Brief Description: I would like to use this OWL to break through my art rut and push my drawing skills to a new level. I have broken this project down into 4 weeks of work. Week one preliminary sketching: I mean a lot of sketches I would like to see myself produce 4 or 5 sketches a day minimum, So a total of at least 35. Week 2 refining the material: On the second week I will sift through all of the sketches and research material I have collected over the first week and choose one per day to develop into a finished drawing. So 7 total developed drawings. Week 3, small works: On the third week I want to take 3 or 4 of the developed drawings and use them to create small finished art works like little water colors or small acrylic paintings. Week 4, working big: During the last week I want to use all the material I have come up with so far to create one large work of art, this piece should take me all week to complete.  At the end of my owl I want to have a viable series of art with 7 drawings, 4 small works, and a large work. The whole purpose behind this owl is to build up my drawing muscles, refine my painting skills, and to train myself to work in series and collections in order to become an exhibiting artist. I know this is an extensive proposal but I don't have another job, I am an artist full time, or I am supposed to be, but I don't always work full time.
