Woohoo, first project of the season!  Freshly crafted this morning for a swap that is due today.  Roll Eyes

Battle/Challenge: March - Clone Wars
Team: Multimedia
Project Name:
Hand-carved Stamp #3
Brief Description: I carved this stamp for one of my partners in the Hand-Carved Stamp swap, based on a cute felt badge she had Pinned.

    I'm going to do it, I'm going to commit to another book. Wink

    Research Project Name: Abecedarian
    Team: Textbook
    Brief Description: Once again I was inspired by the challenge prompts, so I'm just going to go with it. Abecedarian means in alphabetical order and is used to describe art books based on the alphabet. I will make a book with an idiom to represent each letter of the alphabet. I hope to illustrate each idiom not by its meaning but by the idiom itself. For example "flip the bird" might have a drawing of a bird being flipped with a spatula. I think I will give myself a comfortable five weeks for this and have it finished by April 5th. There will 26 illustrations, probably in black and white (to save me some time and to better unify the different ideas). I am not sure of the book structure yet. I'd like to spend the first three weeks on the illustrations and then spend the final two weeks cleaning up the details and figuring out and constructing the book itself.

    I am expecting my third child in mid-April so I have no idea if I will be able to participate much during the second half of the spring battles. I'm going to do all I can in the next six weeks, just in case. Wink

    Yay, new round!
    Tracking devices have been deployed, now we can all craft our way into spring Smiley

    vincentvanbuck - what a nice way to start this round of the games. I've been wanting to try my hand at stamp carving for a while now.
    artsycandice - I love your idea for the book. Some idioms are so funny when you just consider them literally. We had a sort of fun game at work a few years ago, we called it STPOW (Silly Translated Phrase of the Week). We translated idioms and phrases from Hebrew to English and had them on the whiteboard in our room. I can't wait to see which idioms you choose.

    Research Project Proposal

    Research Project Name:  Poppet
    Team:  Randomizer
    Brief Description:  I'm going to make a poppet.  I'm sure I'll regret it, but I'm going to try it anyway!  It is certainly going to take much more than three weeks, especially if I try to make the clothing I want to at this point.

    Timeline:
    Week 1 - Read through instructions again.  Print pattern and cut out pieces.  Figure out how I will do the face.  Start sewing.
    Week 2 - Finish sewing.  Stuff poppet.  Attach limbs.  Add hair.  Also add its eyes/face at some point.
    Week 3+ - Dress the pretty poppet.

    I forgot to check the challenge prompts earlier today! And, I see that I posted the notebooks for my friend and her daughter a few hours too early Smiley  I guess I'll just have to make more things for my friends! Grin

    vincentvanbuck, nice stamp! I always have such a hard time carving small details...

    artsycandice, I can't wait to see the finished book! The last one was lovely!

    LovelyMiss, I don't think poppet making will be as scary as you think... (says the one who still has one left to finish... Smiley ). Making the clothes is actually the most fun part!
