Inspiration Wednesday - Oberyn of the House Martell

Posted by Susan on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 in ,
Inspiration Wednesday - We were tasked with finding a fun character for this weeks journal page. I struggled.....I didn't know what to do, and for a short period of time I thought I would just skip this week's project. But then I found inspiration (pun definitely intended).

This character is the Funko Pop Vinyl of Oberyn Martell from Game of Thrones. I have the real figure in my craft room, and it was while I was sitting at my computer with my little Oberyn looking on that I made the decision to use him on my page.

Inspiration Wednesday - Rusted

This week introduced a new paint called VerDay, which allows you to turn your art surface into a patina. Very cool. I think I will try and use this stuff again, and really play with it now that I know a bit more about how it reacts. Honestly - give it a try and have fun!

Inspiration Wednesday - Retro

This is take two for this page. The first version had a big quote written across it that, in the end, I just didn't love. So I went over it with gesso and gelatos and took a slightly different direction. I like this outcome much better.

Inspiration Wednesday - Urban NYC

Posted by Susan on Monday, May 18, 2015 in ,
I'm not sure this turned out completely as I envisioned. I might have surpassed grunge and gone straight to messy.  The cool thing about this page is the memorabilia underneath that in some places is still poking through. I used a few tickets of events I attended in NYC my last year of High School (so they're almost 25 years old now, that's how long I've been hording them). It was nice to add them to some art and make use of them.

Inspiration Wednesday - Unicorn Girl

Posted by Susan on Sunday, May 17, 2015 in ,
Week 9 of Inspiration Wednesday started out as a hot mess for me, but eventually inspired the title :D  My first layer of color was just too much color, too bright, and frankly I almost gesso'd over the whole thing and started over. But, I kept going, working to layer and tone down the rainbow of layer one, and I'm glad I did.

So what the title "Unicorn Girl"? Because based on the first layer I honestly thought I was channeling my inner Unicorn and farting out rainbows, the colors were SOOOOOO loud! But I learned my lesson to not give up and keep at it to see if you can create something out of it! In this case, I think the exercise was a success.
