I re-decorated the bathroom...
tooth fairy costume: $2. 1 skirt and 1 pair of wings at dollar store. tooth design and ribbons on shirt. old sock with coins and tooth design on it for pouch.
I designed a flyer for an upcoming performance by this musician. Just interesting to also see what I made it out of: I made use of two photos (below). I decided the first one was the most attractive...
And this second one showed just a great face/smile & showed her with her instrument (important), but obviously it didn't need that background...
The Squirrel and I set out to make a stencil. I grabbed a file folder because of its thickness. She drew a cat on it and I cut it out.
The file folder worked out great for a stencil because of the way you can set the paper inside it-- the bottom edge helps with aligning and keeping it in one place.
And when we decided to do a second color (the cat's stripes), I could easily trace the shape onto the back of the folder when closed, then open it up and cut out the stripes...
...and if she aligned with the folder's bottom edge when painting the second color, it turned out pretty good.
posting something I'm currently working on (more stories by Elisabeth Hurley). The first sketch of this particular illustration:
Going through these card sets was not only nostalgic for me but very fun to see, as an artist. They were always at my Grandma B's camp-- my brothers and I played with them and I see now how the art influenced me, who grew up to be an Illustrator/Designer! :)
