Battle/Challenge:November Newbie/Noob (Newbie)
Team:Multimedia
Project Name: Clover's Doll
Brief Description: I have always wanted to make a Waldorf doll, but always found it overwhelming. But since my hubby is away on business and my niece's birthday is coming up I took the leap! My niece Clover is my kindred spirit. Every generation in our family there is one girl with crazy curly hair. I am my generations, and she is hers. She has only straight haired dolls that look like her sister, so I made her a doll with hair like hers. Lots of work, but I think this cutie was worth it!

Ludi - I love your Doctor Prunesquallor!  The texture and dimension you got on his face is so cool!

bunny1kenobi - Great mini books!  I like the papers you chose for the covers.

vincentvanbuck - What an awesome ornament!  I love the lights, and the wreath, and the windows...okay, all of it!  Cheesy

Smeddley - What a pretty skirt!  I also like your hoop and sad little monster..adorable!  Those scarves are too cool!  What a great raffle prize, and I agree, best hero = The Doctor.

Ezri_B - I love your Waldorf doll!  I'm sure your niece will adore her, too!  How sweet that you gave her matching hair.  Smiley  I've wanted to try making one for a while, but I'm not sure my sewing skills are there yet.

Battle/Challenge: Heroes vs Villians (Hero)
Team:Textbook
Project Name: Allons-y!
Brief Description: I agree with Smeddley, the Doctor is my hero! And having taken French in High School for three years (and not retaining most of it) Allons-y and 10 are my favorite. And so I just had to etch this mug in honor of him!

Battle/Challenge: UFO: October Sighting
***Blue Bonus***
Team:Textbook
Project Name: Ra-Ra-Ravenclaw!
Brief Description: Ive had this plain white shirt that I just havent gotten around to customizing. I finally had the time to sit down and get it done. Now I can show my house pride wherever I am.
Project Picture:


Battle/Challenge: Nov: Welcome our new overlords!
Team:Textbook
Project Name: Exterminate!!!
Brief Description: In my opinion our new overlords would end up being some sort of alien or Robot. So I covered both my bases by decorating these plates with an artifact of a time travelling alien and a depiction of an alien with a robotic suit.

Battle/Challenge: Nov: The Scientific Method
Team:Textbook
Project Name: NaHF2 vs. SiO2
Brief Description: Ask a Question: How will Sodium Bifluoride react with glass?
Form a Hypothesis: Sodium Bifluoride will dissolve glass.
Conduct an Experiment: My experiment will use glass mugs, vinyl stencils and Armor Etch (which is about 7-12% Sodium Bifluoride)
Collect Data: The two glasses I did both had the stencil design etched into the surface.
Analyze your Data & Draw a Conclusion: From the data I collected, it does seem that the Sodium Bifluoride does have a reaction with the glass. The etching can vary depending on how long the chemical is left on. In conclusion I believe that a product with a higher concentration of Sodium Bifluoride can dissolve glass. But with only the 12% concentration it can only etch the surface of the glass in the pattern on the stencil.

Battle/Challenge: Nov: British Invasion
Team:Textbook
Project Name: Hogwarts Sweats
Brief Description: I am very much okay with the British Culture Invasion into my life. BBC has all of my favorite shows and I honestly think my favorite accent is British English. It took for every for me to decided on only one thing to submit for this prompt. I finally went with these. Harry Potter was my first real introduction to British Literature, and its still one of my favorite series. I had these pair of plain black pants and then used my Silhouette to cut out the letters and ironed them on.

Wow, great new bunch of stuff!

I am intimidated by both dolls and stenciling, so, Ezri_B and BadWolf314, I'm impressed!  I love all of it.  Cheesy

BadWolf314 - Wow, awesome stuff!  Those plates are so great, I totally want some!  I also like your shirt and pants, and your etched glasses!  I've tried etching three times, with mixed results.  Yours look great!

Battle/Challenge: November Battle Royale (Heroes)
Team:  Randomizer
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: TARDIS card
Brief Description:  As previously discussed, the best hero is The Doctor.  I am in the Paper and Ephemera Swap with geekgirl1000100, and as a fellow Whovian, I had to make a cute card to go with the package.  I made the TARDIS shape in Silhouette Studio based off an available stencil, and cut it out of shimmery blue paper.  I attached white vellum type paper and darker blue blocks to the back.  The stars and vortex are done with my Souffle pens.  The inside is lined with cream paper.

Battle/Challenge: November Myths
Team:  Randomizer

Project Name: Green Man handfasting cord

Battle/Challenge: November Newbies & Noobs
Team:  Randomizer
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Fluorescent cards
Brief Description:  I've shied away from glitter because it always seemed a little corny and messy.  But earlier this year I got a Martha Stewart glitter transfer kit that turned out to be pretty awesome.  I recently invested in some double sided sticky paper and a couple packages of Martha Stewart glitter.  These are done with shapes I cut on my Silhouette and fluorescent glitter.  My first non-kit glitter projects, and I think they turned out kind of cute.  I think this is probably more of a newbie project.  Grin

Battle/Challenge: September UFO
Team:  Randomizer
Bonus Points: UFO bonus (green)
Project Name: Gift tags
Brief Description:  With the success of the above glittering, I decided to finish up some gift tags for the holidays.  I had the ornament shapes cut (which are mostly green) last year, but got distracted and didn't know what to do with them, so they just sat, waiting.  I added some glittered trees and reindeer, some sparkly red tinsel ribbon, and a silver jingle bell to each.  (Sorry for the bad photos, glitter isn't easy to snap.)

Battle/Challenge: October UFO
Team:  Randomizer

Thank you!

Smeddley: Knitting machine!?!? Cool! Love the projects you've made with it!

BadWolf314: Nice etching! I've always been too afraid to try it. Would you say the experiment is worth repeating? Excellent sweats too, BTW, and great plates!

LovelyMiss: Wow! Go Team Randomizer! I especially love your tags and cards. There're actually pens called souffle pens? Very fitting to make a TARDIS card with them!

I got a knitting machine for Christmas a few years ago and I have yet to break it out. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks!  Yep, Souffle pens!  They dry kind of raised to give it an embossed type look.  I love them because they are opaque and can be used on dark papers.  Here is a link to them on Amazon if you're curious.  Cheesy
