****NEWT PROPOSAL****

Subject: Charms
House: Slytherin
Project: Halloween themed art abandonment series
Description: last year I did an art abandonment Easter egg hunt and I had such a good time doing that I thought I would do a Halloween themed one as well. The pieces I'll do will most likely be artist trading cards but I make want to include a few other types of things to abandon. I don't know exactly how many I'll end up with but I'm aiming for 30-50 of them to be left around my city through out the month of October. This project will show my advanced knowledge of the charm Lumos because these little pieces of art are meant to bring a little spot of light to the people that find them.

****OWL PROPOSAL****

Subject: Arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project: multimedia artwork

For this owl I would like to explore the magical properties of the number 7 by making an artwork that incorporates at least 7 different media. My finished art pieces have been pretty small up until now so I want to show more advanced skill by making this one bigger than my previous work which has been no bigger than 12x12. This one will be at least 24x24.

Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project: free form mixed media painting

This painting was relaxing and free, I just let the paint happen as I went and the same with the patterns and lines I drew on top with ink.



Class/challenge: floo: aviary
House: Slytherin
Project: art journaling demo page

I am lucky enough to get to do crafting demos at work and this weekend I was demo-ing for an art journaling class. Here's one of my pages:




Class/challenge: July Detention
House: Slytherin
Project: Starry Shirt

I have had this shirt cut out and sitting on my desk for a few months so it was about time to finish it up. It turned out a little small so I'll have to wait a little bit before I can wear it.




Class/challenge: Quidditch match 8 Wollongong
House: Slytherin
Project: tape resist name painting with Wollongong zigzags

This project was one that I taught in my craft camp at work and in my last session I decided to make one for me too. It has the required zigzags to make a play for Wollongong.




Class/challenge: Quidditch match 10 Chudley
House: Slytherin
Project: Brightly colored song lyric journal page

Another one of my art journaling demos. I was supposed to follow the prompt "favorite song lyric" so this page is about the song Ceremonial (burst into stars) by Blaqk Audio and it is brightly colored.



Class/challenge: quidditch match 11 Moosejaw
House: Slytherin
Project: "word of the year" journal page

Another art journal prompt I did during my demo was "word of the year" and my word is "sing" because this whole year I've been recording music and singing. It makes a play for Moosejaw because it has sparkly tape and ink on it.

I've been away from the castle for a while attending rock concerts and working extra over the summer teaching craft camp. I am so excited to see all the great projects so far this term! You all are on fire! I've found myself in a bit of a slump because I have no more concerts to look forward to at the moment. I always have concert withdrawals. I'm trying to jumpstart my creativity again.

Noodlebug: that kindle case is beautiful! I also love that sketchbook you made!

Gaudiknight: super cute cardigan!

Moonflame: your heavy giraffe plushie and tiny uggs are so cute!

Mistress Jennie: all of your jams look so yummy!

Patty_o: love those trading cards!

Annoyingbigsister: your artwork is great! I especially like your spray paint moon.

Midkiffsjoy: your Halloween doll dress is adorable!

Tiamatfire: that comfort lamb is precious, and I love your shirt with the strawberry buttons.

Plaidpineapple: great PJ shorts, I think I'm going to make some PJ shorts for myself soon, also super cute ruffle skirt!

~ Completed Newt ~

Newt subject: Alchemy
House:Slytherin
Description:

My alchemy newt was to explore the elements of alchemy earth, air, water, and Fire by making an art series and by exploring lots of different art techniques.
I started this as an owl a few years ago and then suspended it and picked it up as a newt. I never thought that studying alchemy would have made my learn so many things about myself! When working on this newt I came up with lots of ideas and sketches and ultimately executed a few of those ideas into several small complete works. Here are some of my ideas:

Elemental sprites:









Elemental icons:









Sketches for some 3d ceramic work:



Here are the finished pieces I ended up with and some process pics:

Ceramic:





Gelatin Printing with added drawing:



















Mixed media watercolor:





Textile art:



As I studied the elements and processes of alchemy I realized that the "gold" you are really looking for is self awareness and awakening so the little triptych of the girl waking up is the transmutation part. If you learn to work with the elements of your life and create a life's work or magnum opus that is the true transmutation. I can't wait to continue this series and grow into larger works and flesh out some of my other ideas like the element sprites and making the rest of the ceramic vessels for each element.

Whoops I forgot to mention in my above transfiguration homework that it fits the class because I used a button for the center of the flower.

Completed Owl:

Owl subject: transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: crocheted afghan

I proposed that I would transfigured lots of yarn into a warm throw sized blanket. I have completed this task and I even think it's a little bigger than I anticipated.



I chose the "one giant granny square" method.

Class: transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: my first kanzashi flower

I have been wanting to learn to make kanzashi flowers for a long time and then I saw a plastic thingy that they sold at my work to help you make them so I had to try it. The kanzashi maker thing was super fun and easy to use! My first flower didn't turn out as tight as I would like but I'm still happy with it. I'll wear it as a pin or an anywhere clip.
