Hello Hello Hello my sweet friends!
This project has been done for a while but.... it just looked so awful that I put it away... thinking not to blog it at all. BUT... I think I resurrected it to some extent.... and it will perhaps pass for URBAN ART!!!
This is another lesson from Creative Jump Start Workshop at the N*Studio with Nathalie Kalbach.
I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed this workshop. It has been WONDERFULLY challenging and FUN for me!!
This lesson was a video tutorial by Jodi Ohl....
Out of Your Head and On To the Canvas.
The Urban Artist: Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Here are some pictures of the process....
it went through a LOT of changes!!!
But I didn't take many pictures in the beginning...
I must have just been having too much fun!
This was just putting layers of paint on - any which way.
Then I decided I needed a stencil to help me out!
I chose the Fiesta stencil/stamp set by Nathalie Kalbach.
I thought I might make them have some sort of conversation in the weird little design above their heads!
But then.... my brain totally went bezerk and I decided to do a wash over the entire piece... WHEW... talk about turning green....
ugh!!! It was actually yellow but picture is crazy too!
So my man and woman looked a bit like this.
And then what? I had no idea. I decided to try another stencil. How about LOVE - then my couple will be in love. Right??!
I chose The Crafter's Workshop stencil by Ronda Palazzari.
But wait.... dear me... I have chopped off my ladies head... WHAT??? Seriously Joi- you are a ditz for sure!!!
And this is when the canvas "went away"....
until I was able to face the challenge once again!!!!!!!!
In the end.... I'm thrilled to have made a happy little home for my loving, sweet couple!!!
Hehehehehhe - now how CRAZY is that????
Hope you are smiling.
Art is Amazing.... that's for sure!!!
Big Hugs. j.
