Hello everyone. Monday came and went bringing with it the next set of colours for the SOC challenge.
Pink + Pink + Orange
Talk about being outside my comfort zone, people who know me know I don't do zingy colours I think last time I used these colours was last years SOC.
So here goes, I decided to stick with the theme of prom dresses/ball gowns.
Back when I was at school it was referred to as end of year disco, no fancy frocks for me, in fact I think it was a relax t-shirt and luminescent roll up shorts. I'm talking Frankie goes to Hollywood verses Bananarama and Thompson Twins.
The basics used were 8"x8" Flat Canvas, Body Form (Several layers cut and glued together), glue mediums and texture paste. Yum.
I began with the texture paste and put two different ones together, hopefully they compliment each other. Small wooden frames were stuck on the board followed by a few wooden birds this was then all painted with white gesso.
The dress form was painted with slate paperartsy paint to to show up against the pale pink of the ribbon used to make the dress. (Can you guess what I used to do as a child). Three lindy's spray gang colours were used on the canvas.
Glass beads in black and pale pink were added to create shading and ground the body form.
pale pink art basics sugar also added a touch of extra sparkle.
Some extra flowers were added to soften the project.
Not really how it looked in my head but task is complete, hope I get a brownie point for that.
Here are a few more close up pictures.
That's it for this weeks SOC if you fancy joining in there are still 4 weeks left or if you want to have a little look at other peoples works of art pop on over to Twinkle Twinkle like a Star, the projects are all fabulous with individuality of their makers stamped all over them.
See you all soon.
