So mah hubby found these sketch books at our local Ollies. This one got into a fight over their hvac and dropped their lease so they are moving and so everything that was on sale is /really/ onsale....Yippie... ..

Before Book:



I just didn't like it...no sir...I don't like it. So then, same day, same store. I got some hair dye. Purple Haze even. Mmmmmrow black/purple hair...BUT the freaking bottle esssssploded...

Explosive Hair Dye:


Good thing Hubby hasn't painted that wall yet!

Wall Of Hair Dye ....Damn:



Yah so maybe it was the fumes or something but I was so upset after brushing the hair dye into my hair. There was so much left. So I tore off that horrid picture and used the rest of the dye to start something arty on the cover of mah new book.

Glitter is Nom:


But that was not enough...Never Enough:


And I wanted to paint the earth and damn how much rum did we drink? I took a turn and hubby took a turn and how the flip did that fabric get there?

The End? The Beginning?


So then I decided it is not sketching I want to try but painting. There was something about how the fabric of the cover felt under the brush. Scary good. So I spent the last week obsessing over Van Gogh's Starry Night...

So what goes inside? Well HANDS of course...



I may not be a painter yet, but I will be. I am not sure the fate of the book but it was fun and meant something to me....hair dye can work......lesson learned.


Thanks for looking at the very first leg of this new journey for me....


Much Love,

Bad Kitty

It saddens me that you consider emphatic finger paint to be a higher art form than actual premeditated and well executed artworks of skill and finess. Moreover that you lash out and attack said pieces rather than using them as examples to better your own work.

totally agree. i am hoping that painting of a girl was just a printed cover and not actual artwork being destroyed with... manic panic. srsly?

i think a bit of premeditated mess with strange and unlikely materials is a good way of A: relieving stress, and B: getting in the mood for some more serious crafting. She said it was a sketch book from a store- on sale- so there is no need to be rude about another persons expression of creativity.

I'm not intending to be rude. I truly am sad that the project involved destroying the original cover artwork instead of salvaging and using it as a reference of very strong, expressive painting. Especially as the poster has stated that she wishes to be a painter.

It was tons of fun, hours of fun in fact, deconstructing reconstructing messy glittery fun...

Man oh man do I wish that was manic panic but alas it was permanent hair dye. Lucky we haven't gotten to that part of the bathroom yet maybe next week hehe.

i want to apologize if that sounded rude. when i read it i thought the OP had bought some used sketchbook from a garage sale/somewhere that had been drawn and painted in by some artist and had taken hair dye to it. i can totally appreciate using unlikely materials as a medium! just not to destroy someone else's work. if it is just some sketchbook with a cover you don't much like- cool way to personalize it. sorry i misunderstood!
