Tattoos

My cousin requested a design for her foot. She hoped to put her daughters name in to too. Here are some progression images.

Step one, sketchy sketchy.

Step two. Enlarge.

Playing with Graphiti

work, work, work

I really do love my job, I get to sit around and draw!  Ha Ha! not really, but here’s some of my latest sketches I’m going to present to my boss for t shirt production.

Mural for the new bathroom

So, I’ve selected my colors and started the base.

Now I’ve chalked the outline for the mural. I can still erase the lines, I just want to see the placement of my wave.

I only have enough paint for one wall, and even so I still need another coat in some places.

I’ve brightened up the room considerably just by shifting the color palette to green. I think it warms the room better than the blue that was there. I love blue, but in this case it makes the room cold, and the beach is already cold. I spend a good deal of time in this room. I’m a girl after all!

Henna and My Best Friends Wedding. A great combo.

Just so I don’t get too emotional I distract myself with henna until the good parts.

Decorating light plates. Part three: Clear coat application and dry time.

Drying and clipping to hold the paper in place after coating each plate with Mod Podge. Love this stuff!

I use bull clips to hold the pesky edges down until they dry. Just be sure to remove them carefully, or use some kind of plastic or wax paper in between to keep them from sticking.

Next comes the mod podge. I covered the whole thing, saturating it like paper mache. You may want to do this in steps if you don’t have any clips.
Cover the front and just bend the paper around the sides. Fold one side at a time. Hold each portion until it stays. Do this until all sides are firmly in place. Let all dry.
When dries, coat again with mod podge.

Drying time. This is where I become impatient. Going to watch some Star Trek.
