Creative Jump Start,Jodi Ohl – Out Of Your Head And On To The Canvas


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.
