My rollerderby league had its annual Awards Ceremony last night and I was one of several who volunteered to make the "awards". I picked to make the award for Best Pivot and Life of the Party- after receiving 2 cheapy frames from our Events head. Our league color is pink so I chose that for the background. I used construction paper for the most part. Glitter makes everything better so I used lots of it- and some glue-on rhinestones. I think they came out okay. I was going to write Best Pivot or Life of the Party on them but my handwriting wasnt so good and I wasnt smart enough to start on this until a few hours before the party. (I couldve printed something in a cool font at work....) Anyway, I think they are fairly representative of the two awards. The Life of the Party was challenging since I was foregoing any handwriting or letters. I needed to come up with something that conveyed Party Girl without any words. So, I hand-drew a pin-up type girl,
Then exacto-cut her out of some thick watercolor paper I stole off my artist boyfriend (and got reprimanded for bc apparently its 70 bucks a tablet
Then, traced her onto pink construction paper, cut her out , doused her in spray adhesive, and covered her in glitter. Then glued her on the construction paper and added a league sticker and some rhinestones. I followed the same method for the Best Pivot award- The pivot wears a stripe down her helmet so that was easy.
Then I hung them outside to dry
and then framed them up. Voila!
Sorry for the fuzzy pics, I need a real camera
