Project Name: Cherries ATC v2
Project Link: -
Brief Description:  (I cleared this project with LovelyMiss as it involves an old project remade into a much changed new project.)  In the last nerd battles in July I posted an atc drawing of cherries. I was happy enough with it at the time, but grew to be dissatisfied with it.  I decided to go back and keep working on it to make it better and more like the original image I imagined.  So this week I worked on it again for another 45min to an hour with a different set of supplies (new supplies in a new time period) of water soluble crayons, gel pen and came up with this much improved version. Made to put in my STS shop.

You're very welcome!  Smiley  I'm so glad you enjoyed it!  Smiley

I'm not sure mine is any better since it has a big glare on it from the light, but here's my pic of the card I took before sending.  Smiley




patraw - I wasn't sure I was going to like blind contour drawing either, but when I saw the results I was hooked!  They are so strange and so surreal that you can see what it was you were drawing even though you never look at your hands while drawing.

I received some cards!  Cheesy 

From BigBangMomma I received a glittery (yay!) and festive Christmas themed card.  So sparkly!   Cheesy  (I'm such a glitter magpie!) Thank you!  Smiley




And from MandyKaye I received two cards, one for my blind contour theme (the butterflies) and one for whimsical which turned into a combo of a few of my themes (the tree).  Smiley  She sent them in a cool handmade envie.   I love blind contours, they are always so much fun to look at!  She says the background is dylusions inks, the butterflies and flowers were the blind contours and then she colored it in with gel pen.  And the glittery Christmas theme is so pretty!   Smiley  Thank you!





If you haven't tried doing blind contours, I highly recommend them.  they are pretty fun and the results are so much fun to look at.  Smiley

blind contour drawing - (a drawing exercise, where an artist draws the contour of a subject without looking at the paper.  Examples from google: https://goo.gl/y7PH57 )  instructions:  https://kinderart.com/art-lessons/drawing/blind-contour-drawing/
