I made this yesterday. I plan on sending my profit from this artwork to my sponsored child in Ghana! It's done in acrylics and ink on foam board with a matte finish. It's 16 x 20 inches. I haven't been this excited about an artwork that I've completed in a long time! I hope you enjoy it as well
This is my second attempt at silk painting, it's so much fun! I really wish I had a silk stretcher, I feel like it would be really beneficial. I am finding that it's really difficult to get the background color an even tone... any tips? Thanks for looking!
So I've been watching art youtube videos like crazy and came upon silk painting. I love it! Being an artist and loving textiles what better way to combine the two? So I bought a boatload of silk painting supplies from Dharma Trading and attempted it for the first time this evening. I'm not a fan of the chiffon, but used it as a practice round because it was the cheapest silk scarf they had. So without any further ado, here is my first and definitely not last silk painting. I would love feedback and advise!
A couple years ago I spent a few weeks in China helping at an orphanage. This is an adaptation of a photo I took from when the orphans danced for us. Along the side I added the Chinese characters for Faith, Hope and Love. Right before our team left the orphanage, I broke down in tears. A little orphan girl wiped the tears from my eyes and told me to be strong. This is done in watercolor, acrylic, pencil, and charcoal.
I used pattern m6460 to make this dress. Because the pattern was "Easy" it did not have a lining and some of instructions lead to what ultimately would have turned out to a tacky looking dress. I incorporated my own knowledge to get the results I did. I altered the back. The zipper was supposed to be placed at the nape of the neck but I lowered and shortened it. I also added a lining. The dress turned out really form fitting and quite a bit low in the front. FYI in case anyone else goes to make it.
These were a late night therapy session (nothing like art to calm and relax) for me this semester one week when I was feeling slightly overwhelmed by schoolwork, duties and hormones. I ended up entering them into our art show where they were displayed with an honorable mention. They are done in acrylics, watercolor pencil, colored pencil and ink. I hope you enjoy them!
This is my newest artwork and I need some critique. I would like to know what you get from this artwork, if you get anything at all. Any and all opinions appreciated! I want to make prints, but I would really love some feedback before doing so. I haven't titled it yet, this is always so difficult for me... suggestions? Thank you so much! I know I can always rely on you wonderful people
I made these for my fashion drafting class. I misread the directions. I was supposed to use scanned fabric as the print, but in the first one I found swatches online. So I had to make another one. But it's all good, I enjoyed the process! Our assignment was to get an outfit, recreate it and put it to a new background. I used illustrator and photoshop.
THese are a few of my ATC's that I created over the summer. They are done with gouache, prisma pencil, acrylic and ink. I hope you enjoy them! I decided to try and sell a couple, I actually sold the first 2, to raise money for tuition. Although I sold them quite cheap I was ecstatic that people enjoyed my artwork.
First piece of artwork I have ever sold!
Hope you have a great day, thanks for looking! God bless!
