Flourishing Blotts

The front of Flourish & Blotts is finished, with a hand-lettered sign.

I wrote out the shop name by hand because none of the fonts on my computer had the flourish I wanted underneath the R in Flourish.

Inside’s coming along as well.

This is one of the shelves of books for sale, you can see Sarah’s drawn like a magnet!

This wall will be behind the counter, and will have noticeboards for new releases, and a little bit of bookish merch as well. I still need to do one more wall of books, as well as putting the floor down and baseboards on the walls.

What are you all up to recently?

Anyways, see ya!

Project Roundup

I’ve had the idea for Hogwarts house bunting bouncing around in my head since I finished the Three Broomsticks, and not long ago I did the maths to figure out just how many flags I’d have to make. It’s 100, 25 for each house. 12 down, 88 to go!

I also started on the front of Flourish & Blotts, though I haven’t got extremely far.

The two holes in the facade are going to be shop windows, and I have some rather … interesting plans for the architecture of the front of this shop. What is it? Well, you may just have to find out…

Anyways, see ya!

Finished Space Painting

As you’ve probably guessed, I finished the space painting!

Above is a progress shot taken just after finishing the USS Enterprise, a close-up of which is below.

Here’s the finished painting, with from left to right, the Millennium Falcon (Star Wars), the Rampion (The Lunar Chronicles), the TARDIS (Doctor Who) and the USS Enterprise (Star Trek).

It looks like Sarah’s looking up at the night sky, doesn’t it? If only spaceships actually filled the night sky, imagine that?

Anyways, see ya!

Painting Space

I acquired these two canvases around Christmas time, for a painting I wanted to do for my room. In this painting, I wanted to have galaxies, stars, and several of my favourite spaceships. Both canvases are 20 x 24 inches, and I put them together to double the space I had for the painting.

Here, I’m painting the galaxy clouds…

IMG_2437_1

…and the stars…

…and the first spaceship!

I’m really happy with the TARDIS, though if I could change one thing, I’d make it darker. The paleness of the paint was a mistake in mixing the colour, and I wasn’t bothered to fix it. It stands out against the black, anyways.

The second ship I’m tackling is the Rampion (from The Lunar Chronicles). This is heavily based on the version on the cover of the TLC colouring book, as I find that the blueprints  are a) hard to read, and b) they give no indication of the Rampion’s colour.

I’m really pleased with how well it’s coming along, though if anyone has advice for the rear end, it’s much appreciated! I want it to look like the end of a rocket, with four defined tubes for exhaust (?) to come out of, though I’m not sure how I’d do this from what I’ve got so far.

Anyways, see ya!

S.P.E.W.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope it’s going well for you so far, or at least better than the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare did.

IMG_2442_1

The Society is from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Hermione creates it in protest of house-elf slavery, but it’s not a success. I don’t think she’s the best at creating abbreviations for societies, either.

I used different fabric for this badge, I think it’s a plain cotton. I’ve used it before to make Snatchcorn’s rug, but I’ve never used fabric that’s not muslin for a badge, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

IMG_2443_1

It’s the third badge with the glue-on-the-back method, and the fourth circular one I’ve made.

It’s also the second Potter badge I’ve made, and I plan on making a badge with Luna’s pink glasses on, I believe they were first seen in the Order of the Phoenix movies. (Correct me if I’m wrong!)

Anyways, see ya!
