Class/challenge/house pride: quidditch- portkey
Spew: Repertory society
House: Slytherin
Project name: malefficent staff
Description:last year I made a maleficent costume for a friends hens night , afterwards I donated it to the repertory society. They run a costume shop which funds dance/drama/ ballets etc. anyhow I went in a few days ago , to get my lil sis a costume and found out that someone had stolen the staff. So I decided I would make them a replacement staff. I then took it for a trip to my mums house.
Project picture :

This is a pic of the original costume

And this is porkey replacement posed here near the dolls house , so that it blends in to the back ground to avoid muggle detection.

The snow/hail we have at the moment made a cool background

sorry for posting this in bits, but i was at work and didn't want to miss the cut off. So i did a little bit here and there whenever i got a chance, as I haven't mastered the time zone change yet.

Thanks greybird, that was very helpful , i will have to give it an attempt when i finish all the projects i have in the works Smiley

So i never managed to get my stuff posted in the weekend , as i ended up with a sick daughter and had to take her to the hosp , but everything has settled down now , so i'm gonna throw some stuff up, i apolagise it will be a bit pic heavy.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Small B&W Album
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This semester we studied the white swan, i especially loved learning about to differences between the white and the black swan, and i took this contrast to inspire this small album.
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Wingardum Leviosa - this album is so small in proportion that it is very light in weight, therefore very easy to levitate.
Project Picture:  

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Bow Flat Album
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: whilst crafting i was practicing my freezing charm by using it to hold the parts in a fixed place so that it can be a functional album.
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Snape says - i followed a tutorial exactly to make this album, as i thought i would try a flat binding , but I don't like it as there's no room for expanding like the ones that i make, so i wouldn't make another but it was fun to try.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Ancient Runes
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Cromwell PL page
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This semester during summer solstice of focus is on DAGAZ. Among other things DAGAZ signifies progress development, and this is the component that i focused on for this craft. it is just a little over a year since i did my first project life page , so i thought i would so my own progress development, with a new /old comparison.
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: n/a
Project Picture:

This is one of the first project life pages i did, it is very condensed i tried to put as many pics of it as possible (i still do this but in a smarter way now) it isn't embellished at all , just a starting place , but i fell nostalgic about it as it does so my progression.

This one is the current one , it is more subtle and cohesive.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:DADA (defence against the dark arts)
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Magick Moste Evile
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Using a tutorial off craftster (my first one ever), i tried out this craft , with was very unusual for me , i had never altered the exterior of a book before and i had also never done a harry potter themed craft before so i was super excited. it has a different look to the tutorial as i used what i had floating at home but i liked how it turned it out.
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Potion Perfect - I actually surprising found this craft was quite easy for me, i think it was because i was very enthusiastic about it.
Project Picture:

I couldn't help myself i had to put blood stains on the evil book.

I loved the texture of this, it was an awesome tutorial.

Ok I posted this on the run whilst waiting on people at work, so it may have some mistakes as I was having difficulty posting it on my phone.

Noodle bug I love those immigrant cards , it is such a neat idea.
Midkiffsjoy that nightie is adorable my daughter would adore it , simple but regal Smiley
Abeeroad those tiedye tops came out awesome , I never remember mine as a kid coming out that kool.

OWL Subject & Option(if available):Alchemy - option one
House: Slytherin
Project Name: metal filing cabinet
Brief Description:  I will be honouring the work of previous alchemists by adaption of metalwork , into something that is both pretty and practical. I expect it will take me approx 3-4 weeks if not longer. I have never attempted crafting with metal before or metal based paints. I am making up the techniques and processes as I go along but here is my general plan.
Step one- somehow attempt to remove plastic handle things.
Step two- sand down metal/old paint.
Step three- prime with metal paint primer.
Step four- make outlines.
Step five- paint.
Step six- see how it goes lol
