First things first... my camera sucks, but this project does not!
One of my all-time favorite movies is the 1982 Annie. As a curly-haired freckled child, I suppose I saw her as some sort of hero in a way? I'm not sure, but this movies still makes me happy every time I see it.
I randomly doodled an Annie like character in my sketchbook one day, and decided I really wanted to do an Annie painting. After attempting to sketch out the drawing on canvas, I scraped that idea and went with a method I've been playing with for the past couple of weeks, drawing out the image in sharpie and coloring it in crayons. Let me just say here, I love coloring in crayons! Annie and her speech bubble sat around for a while until I could think of what to put them on.
The idea came to play around with "The sun will come out tomorrow" and my creative mind wen to work. The "rain" and "clouds" are just cut pieces of paper (from vintage McCalls magazines) that I used sharpie over. I actually added the sharpie on top of the Mod Podge, as well as crayon!
I am so completely happy with the result. AND- it also plays homage to the Little Orphan Annie comic strips...
Which wasn't completely intentional... but I can use it as an excuse to explain the eyes!
Anyway, time to sushh as I picspam the rest of this...
you know, I dont get crazy over zombies like some of my fellow crafsters but these are adorable little zombies. I love the way you layered everything and will be sure to take some inspiration from your work. I LOVE the frames.
Aww thanks. I am a zombie obsessed individual, but I love CUTE zombies the best. AND I got the frames for fifty cents each at a yard sale! Hooray for upcycling!
So I decided to combine my last two art projects to create these two adorable love zombies.
The zombies are drawn on watercolor paper, inked in sharpie, colored with crayons and cut out. The background is an old map and an old letter. The hearts are origami paper. I painted the frames and colored some red crayon "blood" afterwords. I really like the way these turned out.
So my nephew is also awesome and likes zombies. He also likes "cute" things so I figured I would make him a cute zombie for his bday.
I took a "grandfather" poem plaque and did art over it. The zombie, speech bubble, and buildings are sharpie on watercolor paper COLORED IN CRAYONS! The background is an old letter (from 1918 or something) and an old map. I have the zombie saying "meow" because... it's cute and I think my nephew would get a total kick out of it.
