Class/Challenge/House Pride:   Alchemy
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 11: Just a Timerturner Away
Project Name:  Hand carved heart stamps
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:    These heart stamps represent love just like white swans represent love.      (SSH:  Hand carved stamps require many passes of testing the stamped image and then going back and carving some more until the stamped image looks correct.)
Project Picture:




Class/Challenge/House Pride:   Apparition
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 15: Dueling Wizards
Project Name:  Tiny Intricate Art
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:     These illustrations required a magnifying glass, a steady hand and a lot of deliberate determination.   These were very difficult to do even with a magnifying glass because it feels like I'm trying to make a really fine line with a really huge (and sharp!) pencil/marker.   Smiley   I am really happy with how they turned out!   Cheesy    I made these for anne.wahnsinn for her dollhouse in the ows and all 4 designs were inspired or copies of larger illustrations I found on her art board.   Link only because she hasn't received these yet!  Smiley     
(SSH:  Doing art this small with a magnifying glass and what looked like a giant pencil was very challenging! )
Project Picture:

These are larger than actual size.  Actual size is 1 inch by 1 inch.

Ps... the lower right one is upside down.  Oops!   Didn't see that until editing the photo.   Smiley  And fun fact:  the dots for the fireflies glow in the dark.   




Class/Challenge/House Pride:   Astronomy
SPEW: ---
House: Gryffindor
Slytherin Scavenger hunt: 2: All That Glitters
Project Name:  Glittery rainbow ATC
Project Page Link (if available): ---
Brief Description:   Rainbows blend several colors together!   Smiley   (SSH:  lots of glitter in a rainbow of colors!)

greybird, the little books are lovely!  Great job on the stamps, and the rainbow ATC makes me really happy.  Smiley  Those tiny artworks are super cute!

Wow, noodle-bug, that looks like an epic project!  Nice work!

Mistress Jennie, the dreamcatcher is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the colors and textures.


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's - Curry
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Jagua Tattoo
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: 8 - Liquid Luck - The design I made has seven points; 14 - Potion Perfect - I thought it would be a lot harder to paint onto my own arm, but it was actually pretty easy with the transferred design to follow.
Brief Description: A friend of mine gave me a temporary tattoo kit that has ink made from jagua fruit, which can be found in Central and South America.  (According to the book that came with it, the ink in my kit was made from fruit grown in Columbia.)  It's similar to henna except it turns your skin black instead of brown.  I came up with a design and drew it out on paper, then traced it onto tracing paper using the transfer pencil from the kit, then transferred it to my arm with warm water, and finally painted over the transfer pencil lines with the jagua ink.  The book claims that it's supposed to darken to black (or possibly dark gray) over the next 12 to 48 hours, but I'm not sure I believe it...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures class
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Seashell Necklace
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: 6 - Finders Keepers - I used shells I found at the beach.
Brief Description: Inspired by the ocean and the creatures that live in it, I made a necklace that a mermaid might wear.  (I attached the shells through holes that were there when I found them, which is why they don't hang symmetrically.)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean: Curry
SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Reversible Knit Look Beanie
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: For the curry bean, I crocheted a hat using this pattern. I usually use inexpensive acrylic or cotton yarn, so my exotic supply is the 100% wool yarn I bought from a local sheep farm.

Class/challenge: Bertie Bott bean -Curry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: survival belt
Project Page Link: Pinterest: 36 paracord projects
Brief Description:  Annoying little brother lost his belt and his pants keep falling down. We were not going to town any time soon so I decided to make him a belt.  The only supplies that I had on hand was some paracord and clasp for a dog collar.  So I used those supplies and completed the belt for him.  I think it looks good on him.
