521  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / monkeying about on: December 02, 2014 06:51:12 PM

A friend was in a production of Inherit the Wind (a play about the score monkey trial) so i made this first night card; it's pretty simple negative space using an old copy of a dawkins book on evolutionary history, embroidered and layered onto card. But I was pleased with the effect  :-)
522  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Hermione Award on: December 02, 2014 06:38:30 PM

I designed this to look like a medal or award plaque - hermione in profile done in stem stitch (and lettering the same)... And the filigree thingy boarder is my first go at feather stitch  :-)

It I'd to honour the recipient for being (like hermione) an insufferable know it all... A fine compliment indeed and well worthy of recognition
523  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first crayon tint! Old John hoop on: December 02, 2014 06:31:24 PM

Old John is a landmark on the skyline near where i grew up - it's a folly a top a bloody great hill so it's hard to miss!

For this hoop, i stained the fabric to age it, then embroidered the outlines in stem stitch, and had my first go at crayon tinting.. Fun, but I think I'd use the technique differently another time
524  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / If Dorothy Was APunk - ruby slipper DMs on: December 02, 2014 06:23:08 PM
I painted a new pair of plain classic doc martens with red glitter paint

I also replaced the laces with wide satin ribbon in big sloppy bows.

I rubbed them with acetone before painting, and coveted with a layer of leather varnish (the paint was leather paint, specialised for shoes) to limit wear. But i didn't want to eliminate wear entirely as my style is a bit beat up.  I painted these more than a year ago... I wear them most days for work.... And i get more compliments on thrm noe tjan ever  :-)
This is them now

I love them. I love that they are a bit battered - every cease is a memory of a year well spent!

We don't have any new alumni this term, but there are lots of us working along our career paths already, with some really interesting ideas about what we want to be at the end!

I've posted a handful of new employability challenges - some especially challenging ones for the high-achievers out there!

The last Magician of the Month for this term is announced on the board - a duel award this time since you guys rock so hard it's impossible to narrow it down any further (seriously, you should see how many tabs I have open flicking though all the cool stuff you post...)

Congrats to all this terms winners, and to everyone who has posted making this term such fun Smiley Thank you all!
