1  Re: ~*Harry Potter Craftalong ~ Yule Term 2019/2020*~ in Craftalongs by TechnicolorAquahearts on: November 30, 2019 09:41:50 PM
Hello everyone!
    It feels like I have been away from the castle forever. I have a few assignments to turn in.

Class/Challenge: Head Mistress Challenge, The Burrow
House: Slytherin
Project: Cupcake painting

I always find the kitchen to be the warmest welcoming place in my home or my friends homes and what better way to make it nice and charming than with a cute cupcake painting

Class/Challenge: Floo: Silent Evolution Coral Reef
House: Slytherin
Project: watercolor seascape

This painting was inspired by the  colors of the sea.

Class/Challenge: Holiday Challenge: Welcome Feast
House: Slytherin
Project: Hobby Lobby $3 challenge painting

This Thanksgiving painting would be great on a holiday table and art is always something to share. This was a pre-printed canvas kit from hobby lobby that was already incredibly inexpensive but I got it for %50 which made it only $2 It came with some little paints and a tiny paint brush and I tried top use those for the most part but half way through gave up and used my Arteza acrylic paints as well. Ill be doing a lot of things like this because I am taking a stab at an art YouTube channel. I know I like to watch people who do challenges like this on YouTube so hopefully I can make some videos people will want to watch too.  I have this one on video but I havent quite finished editing it yet. I have the cupcake painting in a video too. As soon as they are ready to be seen Ill post links here to show my process.

Class: House Pride
House: Slytherin
Project: Monstera Leaf Modern Art. I imagine this as a sketch for a large painting in a boutique hotel or something. Anyway, House Pride because its green like Slytherins house colors.

Class: House Unity
House: Slytherin
Project: neon punk card. Sending letters to your friends is a great thing to promote house unity!

Class: February Detention
House: Slytherin
Project: mixed media paintings
In my quest to free myself up artistically and fill up my sketchbook I have been trying to use stuff Ive had around but never really tried. These paintings are with Jane Davenport matte acrylic paints I think they are meant for art journaling, but I LOVE them. They go on paper so smooth and are kind of translucent so you can layer them in awesome ways. They dry super smooth and with a texture similar to the paper itself so they are really easy to draw on top of.

Class: HoM
House: Slytherin
Project: Therapuetic tactile art experience. As with the theme thats developing in my posts, this project was all about getting my hands in some paint and just enjoying that process out of self love. This was fun because my mom is a teacher so sometimes there will be the most interesting art stuff lying around her school, and I was helping her the other day and spotted a silicone printing fish. Where else would you find one of those but in an elementary school? What resulted was a very fun, relaxing, and tactile experience. Very stress relieving.

Class: muggle studies
House: Slytherin
Project: Mandala Greeting Card
This is made out of paper but also I like to thing that the lines in a mandala are kind of twisted together.

Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project: Greyscale fox drawing: This little guy turned out so cute I decided to make a series of animals like him.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: Mind cleansing doodle: again with the theme of using art as therapy I used cool and calming colors for this doodle and just relaxed into it. It helped me to stay focused on positive things.

Class: Divination
House: SLytherin
Project: Tattoo Rose Greeting Card
I love gel pens and the ones I have right now are super bold on black paper.

Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project:Sketchbook drawings
One thing I have been doing is challenging myself to fill up a sketch book really fast like in the space of a few weeks. This way I am forced to draw more and increase my skill to new heights. Here are a few of those pages:

Class: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project: Dark Arcades gel pen art. This was inspired by a song called Dark Arcades by Blaqk Audio and it was made in honor of someone I love.

Class: Care Of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project: Drawing inspired by the song End Transmission by AFI. This song has helped me get through some of the deepest sad.

Class: Charms
House: Slytherin
Project: Healing Garden Botanical Illustration: This is one my favorite projects Ive done recently. Through all of the anxiety and stress over the past few weeks I have been watching art youtubers and Skillshare classes for hours. It has been better than medication really. One of the skillshare classes was on botanical illustration based on going to a botanical garden. This illustration is from the healing garden at the cancer center ErinAquaheart goes to. I feel really safe there because its always quiet and cool even on hot days, so when our cancer journey gets intense I can go there to kind of ground myself and deal with my emotions.

Class: DADA
House: Slytherin
Project: Daffodils tattoo and practice sketches. This is the Best tattoo I did before I left, it looks creepy because its on a pig ear. As I learned how to tattoo I learned how to prepare for them so this project includes my practice sketches from which I eventually picked the daffodils and then finally tattooed them after practicing drawing flowers over several days

Ok, I hope you can forgive my giant project dump, I have had a really rough few months, but I have been creating things. Especially since I left my tattoo apprenticeship because I used art to sort of re-boot my brain. Seriously, it was so bad that my therapist diagnosed me with acute post traumatic stress from the whole thing. Anyway, on to happy creative things, and there are some tattoo related projects here too because a.) Im proud of that new skill and b.) Im on the mend and I am looking at new apprenticeships so this isnt the end of my story as a tattooist.

Class: Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project: heart gem stone tattoo design

This was drawn on my iPad Pro on procreate

Class: Apparition
House: Slytherin
Project: gel pen abstract
Like I said earlier I have been going through some hard times and I believe in the power of art and color so I made this bright colored abstract piece with gel pens because it was so nice to just color with them. I made it to put on my bedroom door as a visual mood lifter.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project: Lotus Blossom Sketch
These fit the prompt because of the flowers.

Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project: My first tattoo
This fits the prompt because a tattoo machine and tattoo ink were definitely new to me.

Thank you so much JoyfulClover!

Got to get those last trees in under the wire!

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Angel
House: Slytherin
Project: Christmas Card For a Dear Friend

This particular Christmas Card went to my friend Kim who is definitely an angel in my life.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Garland
House: Slytherin
Project: Snake tattoo art

I live in the south so we see a lot of snakes in the winter because its not cold enough for the snakes to leave but they come out of their hibernation to sun on the driveway from time to time.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Icicles
House: Slytherin
Project: Makit-Bakit Fail

Ok so we got these make it bake it kits because I always loved them when I was a kid and Erin had never tried them before, well they were actually really hard! It was way too easy to disturb the metal frame and have to start all over. I finally got mine all done and ready to go in the oven when POP! The cookie sheet warped suddenly and offset the metal design frame. Well I took a look at the pile of little plastic pellets and decided it would be cool to see what they did if I melted them anyway without the design frame. The result was this sort of blobby abstract tree art chunk. Anyway, in order to melt it it had to be kept at a certain temperature.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Tinsel
House: Slytherin
Project: Sparkly Christmas Card

This Christmas Card has a glittery pattern of sparkles painted on it above the trees.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: FakeSnow
House: Slytherin
Project: Christmas Card

I made this Christmas card with a package of blank cards from a craft store

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Baubles
House: Slytherin
Project: Christmas Card

I really love hand making my Christmas cards every year because they show off my personal style. I really like abstract art and I really like to pick a design element and vary on it in a series. With these Christmas cards I took the shape of a triangle and varied on that as much as I could.

Class/Challenge: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project: Goldfish Tattoo Illustration

So, Part of why I have been MIA for a while is that during 2018 I went through a lot of transition with my employment. I had been working at a fabric/craft store for a while, but I severed my relationship with that company and on the same week that went down Erins cancer recurrence was discovered. Then I got a job at Starbucks in management which I was excited about because having been an independent artist for most of my life it was my first big girl job. Well, shortly after I started that I was offered a tattoo apprenticeship which has been a lifelong dream. So I left my big girl job after only two months to pursue the tattoo apprenticeship which brings me to my project for this prompt. I am learning to draw with an iPad using Procreate because it is great for being able to make an illustration much like you would when drawing by hand but then able to change it while consulting with clients and then just print it directly to the stencil. I am still learning and non of my procreate illustrations are tattoo worthy but Im working on it. Heres one of my first ones, It fits the prompt because the scales on the fish are an intricate pattern and the little bubbles are multiple circles.

Class/Challenge: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project: Peanutbutter and Jelly tattoo illustration

Another practice design from my iPad. It fits the prompt because peanutbutter and jelly and best friends are two things that go together

Class/Challenge: History of Magic
House: Slytherin
Project: Flow Icing cookies

These were the cookies that I decorated out of the cookies that ErinAquaheart already posted all the recipes for. These fit this class for me because I have never decorated using the flow icing technique before. So, it was something new for me.

Class/Challenge: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: Furry monster tattoo illustration

This fits the prompt because this monster is furry.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Star
House: Slytherin
Project: Sugar and Spice tattoo illustration

This fits the prompt because drawing is my best medium

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: Ribbon
House: Slytherin
Project: more Christmas cookies

These cookies fit the prompt because we decorated them around the table with Erins dads side of the family and the activity tied us together. Erin already posted the recipe on her post.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: candles
House: Slytherin
Project: Christmas Tree Mask

Erin and I always have the idea of doing cute seasonal selfies with these wooden masks you can find in the kids section of the craft store but we have yet to actually take the selfies lol. Here is my Christmas tree mask that for sure would give me a warm glow in a selfie.

Class/Challenge: Hagrids Trees: tree skirt
House: Slytherin
Project: Christmas ugly sweater T-shirt

This project fits the prompt because a T-shirt is functional but the art on it is decorative. Erin and I wanted to wear ugly Christmas sweaters together but we both always get way too hot in sweaters so we painted T-shirts. Our shirts were inspired by mid-century modern art like Piet Mondrian and Alexander Calder.
I have to post two pics because one of them doesnt show the whole shirt but has such a cute little photo bomber I couldnt leave him out.

10  My First Wedding Cake in Dessert by TechnicolorAquahearts on: December 31, 2018 02:53:44 PM
Over Christmas Vacation this year I visited my in-laws and was roped into making a wedding cake at the last minute. I have made smaller cakes before but never a big wedding cake like this. Its not perfect, it leans just a little bit because I didnt get the bottom tier level enough. Im proud of it though and the bride was very surprised and happy with it, so that was worth all the work.
