I thought I would try and create something for the challenge over at That's Crafty- it involves the art having a predominantly black theme. I have seen this idea copied a lot on blogs - firstly, create a bright picture with lots of interest, then covering most of it up - seems a bit strange, especially when you like the background that you are covering up!
I used a sun-ray stencil that I had made myself.
So, after not creating anything for a while, I've managed to have some arty fun twice in a week - all because it rained, forcing me out of the garden again!
This picture was inspired by Nika Rouss over at the Donna Downey website - I love her style of painting, incredibly she seems to use only her fingers and a baby wipe for so many of her paintings and I love her painting style.
Anyway, I used a Jofy flower stamp and am actually really happy with my picture!
This page started as a mop up page. I had too much pink paint on my craft mat and so decided to use it up through the circle stencil as a border. Well I loved it...and promptly forgot about it!
Over on the Rubber Dance blog they are holding a challenge to use 3 colours - pink, red and orange - I haven't managed to create any art for a long time - the garden is just too much of a temptation for me at the mo - well, the colours seemed to fit for a sunflower theme....even though it's still spring.... and that border was just so perfect.
Just finished this in time for tomorrow's deadline - entering her into the Craft Barn's song challenge. As you can see this time the song is I Can't Stand The Rain.
The rain drops have a shine to them which I haven't managed to pick up in the photo. Still keeping with my own challenge of creating a face each time - my nemesis is always the nose, they are just so difficult to draw, sometimes on a rare moment I am happy but not this time! Never mind, always focus on the positive and I like the flower and the eyelids have a glow to them with the treasure gold. Actually my favourite part is the chin and neck area, I like how I shaded it.
