1  Re: 2017 DeStash Along in Craftalongs by ErinAquaheart on: May 18, 2017 11:27:43 AM
Finally hit the paper stash and made some cards. Of course I think I have more paper now than when I started. I didn't buy more but it seems to multiply when I use it. Anyone else have that problem!?

OWL submission: study of ancient runes --option 3
House: Slytherin
Project name: full rune set
Project description: I made a full set of runes, a reading mat, a rune bag, and a box to store everything in. I started with trying to make my tunes with polymer clay but that didn't end up being what I wanted so I switched to round wooden disks. I wood burned a rune onto each disk. I then used watercolor paint to stain each disk and sealed them with varnish. I made the box in the same way. The bag and mat are made with silky fabric and ribbon. Really happy with it all and am enjoying doing a rune readings for myself!

NEWT Submission: CoMC
House : Slytherin
Project name: Into the Forest: a painting.
Project description: I finally finished my NEWT! It took a lot longer than I thought it would be I learned a lot about painting with acrylic, using stencils and printing, and making shadows dark enough. I was going to have more Creatures on this painting but when I tried it ended up too busy. So I had to simplify and only do a few. The tree Guardian, the golden hind, and the magical old bunnycorn.
It is a 4ft x 2ft painting

Challenge: floo--shell cottage
House: Slytherin
Project name: zen coloring
Project description: there is something so relaxing about coloring a color page. I particularly took joy in doing the woodgrain on this one. So relaxing and the mandala made it repetitive too.

5  Sweet and Sour Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ErinAquaheart on: April 23, 2017 06:08:04 PM
I used cloisonne beads and shrink plastic for the little charms.  A cute bracelet with a little bite!

7  Sir Teddy Cuddlestuff: A Series in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ErinAquaheart on: April 23, 2017 05:13:39 PM
I have this series that I'm working on that is about a Teddy Bear named Teddy Cuddlestuff.  One day he went to sleep and the next he woke in a whole different world. Unable to return from where he came he embarks on a journey in his new home.  He makes new and magical and powerful friends. Eventually he is sent on a quest to rescue the Lost Souls in the Forest of Lost Souls.

His journey and quest represent all of us.  Everyday we wake in a world that didn't exist the day before and we are forced to adapt to the new reality that is everyday life. I want Teddy's adventures to highlight how we should approach each day with wonder, and that if a quest should arise to accept the challenge with excitement!

This first picture is a study for when Teddy Cuddlestuff first wakes in his new world. It was fun experimenting with stencils to add a new dimension to works.


One of the creatures that Teddy meets is The Golden Hind. She cares for the Golden Apple trees and offers one to Teddy when he goes on his quest into The Forest of Lost Souls
This is a character study for her. Watercolor only.

A study for the golden apple trees. (someone told me they look like lemons...I am okay with this)


Another creature that Teddy encounters is the Merelephant


To show him the way to the Forest of Lost Souls, Teddy befriends The Forest Guardian. This is a portrait of the Forest Guardian.




I'll add to this post as I have more of this series to share

I've used a bunch from my stash this year...but nothing ever seems to fit the prompts.  I really want to do some papercrafting stash busting!  Anyone want a handmade card? or set of cards? In all seriousness I would love for the cards I make to have a place to go and a reason to be made to begin with!!!

I made some cute little bracelets just from my stash. They have flowers on the beads so that should count for one of this months prompts.

Love the tuffet, Mistress Jennie!  I think I might have to try sneaking in as an apple...I would make a terrible banana!

Everyone's crafts are so amazing this term! So much inspiration!

Challenge: Headmistess -- April Fool's Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Naughty "subversive" Bracelets
Project Description: I believe this fall under the "Irreverent" of the prompt.  I was digging through my stash and found these typewriter key beads already separated into words for me.  They are not so nice so I just included links for the pictures.  I don't want to offend so please be aware that these have curse words in them. The least of them are the included picture.

Challenge: Headmistress -- Ravenclaw's Diadem
House: Slytherin
Project Name: "Sweet and Sour" Bracelets
Project Description: Again, I was digging through my stash and dug out these cloisonn beads.  They make such cute and sweet bracelets all by themselves.  But I wanted them to have a little kick if you looked long enough.  I thought it clever if they had a little "sour" charm that said something not as sweet as the cute little bracelet entailed. And so "Sweet and Sour" bracelets were born.  I made eight total this is just three of them. (Punk, Salty, and STFU were charms on other bracelets)

Class: CoMC
House: Slytherin
Project name: Patronus the Game
Project description: I've had this little box hanging around forever. I loved it but couldn't think of what to fill it with. And then it hit me! It makes a perfect little game box. I made the inside of the box the game board and then filled it with game pawns of little plastic animals, cards to draw, and some wands to cast your patronus. The game is over when there are no more happy memory charms to collect. Player with the most charms wins!
outside of the box
inside of box with all the pieces
and how everything fits inside!
