Here are the puzzle pieces I have received so far!   Cheesy


From Sammylouise40:


Two super bird pieces!!!   Smiley   She said one is based on a hummingbird that visits her yard everyday and the second is based on her sister's conure.    The hummingbird is very sweet and I really love how you made the conure!   Thank you!   Smiley

6  Altered dream journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by greybird on: July 03, 2015 12:04:16 AM
I made this for Lo{ve} in the ongoing wish swap.  She wanted an altered dream journal for recording her dreams. 

I have been saving envelopes and pasteboard packaging for making junk journals for some time, but I hadn't actually altered one of my junk journals before so this was a new and fun experience for me.   Smiley  I used a lot of her favorite colors and themes, acrylic and watercolor paints, sharpie paint markers, a ribbon, a pocket envelope (back cover) and some glitter.   Cheesy    I used a 5 hole pamphlet stitch to bind with waxed linen cord.
































































I loved how this came out!   Cheesy

7  Two headed Crow in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by greybird on: June 29, 2015 03:43:58 PM
I made this two headed crow for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap a few months back.   It is paper mache over a cardboard and paper form I made.  Roughly the size of a cockateil or small conure.   I gave them red 'ruby' eyes to make them more curious.   Cheesy 














I really liked how it came out!    Smiley

I made this a few months back as a Christmas present.  It is coptic bound with 19 signatures and faux painted book covers.   Smiley   I am really pleased with how this turned out as was the recipient.   Cheesy     Finished size is about 6" x 4.5" x 2.25".   Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:   Alchemy
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 11: Just a Timerturner Away
Project Name:  Hand carved heart stamps
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:    These heart stamps represent love just like white swans represent love.      (SSH:  Hand carved stamps require many passes of testing the stamped image and then going back and carving some more until the stamped image looks correct.)

Class/Challenge/House Pride:   Apparition
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 15: Dueling Wizards
Project Name:  Tiny Intricate Art
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:     These illustrations required a magnifying glass, a steady hand and a lot of deliberate determination.   These were very difficult to do even with a magnifying glass because it feels like I'm trying to make a really fine line with a really huge (and sharp!) pencil/marker.   Smiley   I am really happy with how they turned out!   Cheesy    I made these for anne.wahnsinn for her dollhouse in the ows and all 4 designs were inspired or copies of larger illustrations I found on her art board.   Link only because she hasn't received these yet!  Smiley     
(SSH:  Doing art this small with a magnifying glass and what looked like a giant pencil was very challenging! )

These are larger than actual size.  Actual size is 1 inch by 1 inch.

Ps... the lower right one is upside down.  Oops!   Didn't see that until editing the photo.   Smiley  And fun fact:  the dots for the fireflies glow in the dark.

Project Name:  Glittery rainbow ATC

Class/Challenge/House Pride:   June Library - Celebration
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 4: Snape Says
Project Name:  Tiny origami books
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:   Wee little origami books both for the book aspect of the library and also the metallic orange one I made to celebrate and award as a prize to the raffle winner.   Smiley   (SSH:  in order to make origami patterns, you have to follow the directions exactly.)
Book Recommendation:  The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder is one of my favorites from childhood which celebrates the end of winter and its trials in an unusual way.   Smiley   I recommend the entire series, but this one in particular was my favorite.
