Class: CoMC
House: Slytherin
Project name: unicorn kit
Project description: I bought a cardboard unicorn kit on clearance at hobby lobby. I painted it with some shiny metallic paints (it's hard to see the shininess in the picture.) I'm really happy with how pretty the unicorn. It was so much fun to put together.


Class: charms
House: Slytherin
Project name: hp quilt block #4
Project description: very very slowly I've been working on making quilt blocks from fandominstitches.com This is my fourth block. Paper piecing is quickly becoming a favorite craft for me. This block turned out lively and fun!


Class: DADA
House: Slytherin
Project name: fall scratch leaves
Project description: I've always found making scratch art a particularly calming craft and I hope that the designs on each leaf that I did are soothing to they eye as well.


Class: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project name: sushi print dress
Project description: the fabric that I used for this dress was in the store for such a short period of time. And when I bought it I got the last that was there. Just enough to make this cute dress! (And a matching bag...but that will come later)

Challenge: Iron Chef August--Tea
House: Slytherin
Project name: earl grey tea cookies
Project description: I've never thought of cooking or baking with tea before so this was quite a departure for me. I love how these turned out. Though I think I'm going to use a drizzle of glaze to make them even better.

Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project name: Wake-up, Teddy (a study)
Project description: painting on a canvas requires using the right paintbrushes to get the texture you want. I used one kind of paintbrush for the background to get all the visible brush strokes. Then I used smoother brushes on Teddy to get that creamy texture I wanted. A scrubby brush helped me get the ground just right.

Challenge: Floo--an aviary
House: Slytherin
Project name: glitter pompom garland
Project description: I had some pompoms left over from last Christmas and wanted to make a garland with them. Using just stuff from my stash to bling it up. I paired the pompoms with some silver and green beads. Really turned out cute. It's about four ft long. Long enough to drape onto the tree!

Challenge: Quidditch #1-- Sweetwater All-Stars
House: Slytherin
Project name: Wooden dinosaur scene
Project description: Technicoloraquahearts and I split a wooden dinosaur scene set to paint. I got five critters to paint and she got two critters and the backdrop piece. I have four dinos and one wooly mammoth. Smiley

And this is the set before we started painting


Challenge: Quidditch #4--Wigtown Wanderers
House: Slytherin
Project name: pumpkin bread for lynn

Challenge: Quidditch #16--Ilkley Quidditch
House: Slytherin
Project name: Basket of Hearts (#1)
Project description: this painting was fun to work out.  I did it all without a pattern or reference material. I'm not completely happy with how it turned out. I think Teddy Cuddlestuff is too dark of a brown. I'll be trying this one again in the near future.

10  Transfiguration in Craftalongs by ErinAquaheart on: May 26, 2017 10:13:44 AM
Transfiguration

Beetles into Buttons

 This term we will be practicing turning beetles into buttons. With warmer weather upon us there is no shortage of creepy crawly beetles to practice this incantation on. So raise your wands and turn some of these beetles into useful buttons. Craft something that uses buttons somehow, or create a project inspired by the humble beetle. This could include making a set of six cards to reflect six legs, bake cookies that have a crunchy outside but a gooey center, or make a bracelet out of iridescent beads like the body of a beetle.

Some lovely beetles that will make beautiful buttons!
