Well, today, instead of working on the Scavenger Hunt I have scheduled for tomorrow (what was I thinking?!!...it was a suddenly "I think I'll host a Scavenger Hunt"! HUH???) I got on Pinterest and got swept away into my imagination.
Someone had painted a creature (?) that had big huge eyes that looked so cool because they had two white spots and the top of the iris was darker than the bottom giving it an almost clear "eyeball" look! ..... "Hummmmm", I thought, "wonder if I can do a eye like that?" That was hours ago, and this is what I ended up with:
But, what is actually in my notebook (I wish they made composition books with blank pages). This took hardly any time... 30 minutes maybe? It was the add ons that took a while...
The leaf and flower aren't really in my notebook, I added those so you could see what I used to make the butterflies and bushes. Those are separate png files that I brought into CorelDraw and started messing with (tracing/ungrouping/filling with color/moving nodes around, etc)... I would be happy to go into more detail but I'm guessing not many folks have Corel, most have PS and things would be done differently there.
At first I was thinking it looked like a turtle head because of the thin neck but when I decided to go with a butterfly for it to be looking at, I wanted it to be a caterpillar so I had to cover the neck up... with a "bush" (aka. a bunch of leaves copied and pasted).
There are so many scriptures that could go with this that I have a hard time choosing...
Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you,....
Zachariah 4:10 (NLT) "Do not despise the small beginnings for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin....
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new"
? more ?
I don't know, you choose one...gotta love that whole metamorphosis thing!
Important to know though is THERE IS HOPE!!!
used: fountain pen w/ brown ink to sketch, 2 color pencils, 2 watercolor pencils, and 3 markers (not because I need all those different things but because that's what is within reach of my PC
