Challenge Time!

It’s time for another Oddball Art Co challenge. This time on the blog, the challenge is to show off your coloring skills! I used this adorable little fairy from the Oddball Art Co Etsy shop. She is Fairy Girl Image No. 70 in the shop. I took a small canvas from Michaels and sprayed it with different Dylusions and Color Shine sprays in variations of orange, yellow, and pinks. To create the bokeh style background I took two Heidi Swapp stencils and used  white gesso to create those see-thru areas that look like orbs of light. I also took one of my pink stamp pads and a makeup sponge and used the same stencil to create darker circles. I really like the way the background came out. It’s bright and pretty but also has this ethereal quality!  I colored up this digi with my Prisma color pencils. I did add a bit of lace trim to the bottom of the canvas and a large cluster of various flowers just for some interest. Hope you guys like it!

Oddball Art Co FB Challenge with Mini Canvas!

It’s time again for another Oddball Art Co Facebook Challenge. For the July 1st challenge, I used this adorable little lamb digi and created a colorful canvas to showcase him. The digi is image No. 34 in the Etsy shop. The challenge will run on the Facebook Group, Mixed Mediaology.  You have until August 1st to compete in the challenge. You just must use an Oddball Art Co digital image in your project but anything goes. The winner will be picked after the deadline and a prize of 3 digis of your choice will go to the winner! Pretty sweet, huh?

For the canvas, I started by spraying different Dylusion and Heidi Swapp Color Shine sprays. After these dried I used black and white acrylic paint with stencils to get some different patterns for the background. The hearts that you see were created with modeling paste that I mixed with a little bit of pink Dylusions. They mostly take on the color of the background sprays but in a few areas you can see a tiny bit of pink, peeking through. After watercoloring the adorable lamb digi, I added him to my canvas! I love the way it turned out and think the vibrant colors will really pop when he gets hung up. Thanks for checking out my blog and artwork, guys!
