Hi everyone! I've been in the Hospital Wing for a while; I came down with a bad case of the Hippogriff Flu. I'm a lot better now though, so Madam Pomfrey let me out so I could play some Quidditch! Well, I *say* "let" ... let's not go into that.
Class: Beater Challenge
Project Name: Macrame Owl
Brief Description: I've wanted to try macrame for a long time, so this challenge was the perfect opportunity! I used 2 ply cotton thread and an old bracelet to make this purple owl. I'm not totally happy with how it turned out, but I will definitely do macrame again sometime.
Class: Chaser Challenge
Project Name: String Art
Brief Description: String Art is another technique I hadn't tried before! I used an old chopping board, metallic charcol spray paint, upholstery tacks, and red wool. I chose an ampersand because it's one of my favourite puncuation marks ^_^
Class: Broomstick Challenge
Project Name: Firebolt
Brief Description: I used Adobe Illustrator to vectorise some of my hand-lettering and apply ink effects to make this poster for the new Firebolt (well, not so new now, but you know what I mean).
Class: Seeker Challenge
Project Name: A Flutter of Snitches
Brief Description: I made these snitches from ping-pong balls, spray paint, feathers, a lot of hot glue, and a secret spell to make them fly ~_^ They're hard to get a photo of when they're all fluttering about ... I'm going to tether them to my tree this holiday season ^_^
I've really been enjoying everyone's projects! There have been so many added since I became ill that I don't think I can name all my favourites though! So I'll just say this ...
Go Slytherin! ~_^
