Nice projects guys
ravenclaw extra credit: Divination
Peacocks are often used to represent vanity - I am channelling that by painting my nails! I'm doing the colour run tomorrow, and wanted suitably bright n funky nails; I've never tried to do more that one colour on a nail before but I had fun - hopefully next time I'll get my lines a little more even
I choose the colours red yellow and blue since they are said to represent The stars, the sun, and the moon - 3 tarot cards of the major arcana
ravenclaw extra credit: charms
Project: Mini bubblewrap monster
I used bubblewrap to make the 'fabric' of this monster; spray painted it two colours front and back so you can see both as it crinkles - I've never made a 'fabric' like that before, or sewn plastic at all really.
he also has a little zombie duck companion - the duck was taken from a phone charm I found in the poundshop and painted
House: GO EAGLES
Ravenclaw extra credit: astronomy
I made these as a random gift for my cousins husband, since he dropped some really subtle (hmm....) hints into the conversation a couple of weeks ago
He's lovely so I don't mind! Like all my socks, they are knitted on a loom - this time with sale brought noro wool
i choose this wool because the colours reminded me of the aurora. It is possible to see the aurora in the UK if you are lucky, (especially as far north as hogwarts!). but it is a late-summer & early-autumn time spot usually becasue that is the only time of year we tend to get clear enough nights.
