Dresses - Cute and Crazy

Hi you all,  I have decided to come back to Art Inspires as I never felt comfortable at Zana’s Journey.  I did a test post during the week and the troll seems to have gone.  But I will use comment moderation just in case she resurfaces. (Just have to remember to check my emails regularly!!)


Today I have 3 journal pages that I have done for Mix It Monthly.  The theme this month is crazy dresses with the colours below.  I haven't stuck strictly to the theme, as the muse takes me off on tangents!


The first picture is of me looking forward to the summer (hehehe).  I did mange to stick to the colours here.

The picture below is of how we keep one eye on what others are wearing and often turn green with envy not realising that we are just as cute!


The one below is of a lady who has dresses herself with trash or found objects!  I actually saw one not long ago and she looked awesome.  To help with the trash look I layered the page with tissue paper and glued string to the page.  Then used stencils and thins layers of watercolour and pastels.  She is my favourite!


  
Have a great creative week

  5. AMAZING Sharon... I love them all soooo much!! I even had a little giggle...the first one looked a bit phallic to me...probably just my warped mind....I was wondering if it was done with a finger print...Love it! You always inspire me!! I think you should have greeting cards made up with all three of these prints!! Just wonderful! They are so special!!

    Hugs Giggles

  20. I think these are utterly fabulous, they are so alive, so colourful and I love your style of painting, it looks so free and happy. The last lady is wonderful, she looks so confident - she may actually be a duchess about to open her grand Garden Party. Your first has such personality too, love her necklace and her Attitude. The three ladies eyeing each other up are brilliant too. Really inspiring art.
