Time for another Oddball Art Co challenge! This time the theme was Easter or Spring. If you’d like to join us head on over to the blog. You can create a project or use one that you’ve made for Easter or Spring and be entered to win 3 digi stamps from the Oddball Art Co Etsy shop. You have until May 14th to join in and play along! For my project I decided to create some bookmarks using this adorable little zombie bunny. He comes with the Zombie Girl digi but I just felt like he stole the show so I had to showcase him for this project.
I created four different bookmarks and colored up the zombie bunny in different pastel shades for the Easter theme. The bookmarks were pretty simple to make since I had to keep them relatively flat to fit into a book. I cut 4 pieces of paper in approximately 2 inches by 4 inches and backed it to make it more sturdy. I then sprayed the bookmark with different Ranger Dylusions sprays. I decorated each bookmark differently with random washi tape, stamps, stickers, and used stencils and cut-outs. I really like the way they all came out. They’re fun and funky and definitely useful. I think making a set of bookmarks is a great way to make an inexpensive gift for friends. Hope you guys will join us for the challenge. If you decide to, let me know I’d love to check out what you create!
Below are some close-ups of the individual bookmarks :
For the latest Oddball Art Co challenge I decided to create a Art Journal page. There’s nothing more freeing than just working in your art journal. You just get out some paints and see where things will go and if you mess up, you just run with it and make it something you do like. This art journal page was for Oddball Art Co’s Facebook Challenge. The challenge was to just use a Digi image and I used image called “Big Eye Girl Image No. 18” for my page.
I started my page by first using a hexagon stencili and some modeling paste. I knew I wanted that texture as one of my first layers. I then started adding some Hero Arts Neon Purple from a paint dauber, Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray in Mustard, and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Citron. After I layed down some lime green and teal acrylic paints. I used a variety of stencils and paints, and stamps to keep building the layers as I worked. Regular white gesso helped me to smooth out areas that I didn’t feel like initially flowed well together. My favorite addition to the page was Mod Podge-ing down some tissue paper with clocks and texts. I felt like it just added another interesting layer to the piece. The title “From chaos comes clarity” comes from a 311 song lyric. I stamped out the words, “from” and “comes” and the words “chaos” and “clarity” are Jenni Bowling rub ons. I really like that when I look at the page each time, I feel like you can still see something you didn’t notice before.
