CREATIVE TUESDAY!

Today is Creative Tuesday day!!  Creative Tuesday is a blog that gives a prompt every other Tuesday, and we have to make something from it.  The talent over there is amazing.  I collage, art journal, even doodle, but the people there actually draw, and it is amazing to see.

This prompt was "Rooftop".  How the heck am I going to do that????  So I thought on it for 12 of the 14 days, and finally came up with this.
I came up with the idea "look up" out of no where, and decided to take pictures of the rooftops in my neighborhood.  I went up stairs, and took pics from that window.  Then, I found this wonderful picture of a mermaid looking up.  This plan is coming together!!  I started by using my watercolor crayons, and blending them.  Then, I used blue ad white spray inks.  When everything was dry, I doodled all around the page.  I glued on my rooftop pics, and put a doily behind my mermaid.  I even used some birds to cut out an put on the rooftops, and  I used some wings on the mermaid  too.  The last thing I did was cut the letters for look up and Fly, out of a magazine.  Of course, the "FLY" looks like "FNY", but that's how it goes sometimes, right?????

SO, I am off to Creative Tuesday now, to look at everyone's beautiful work!!  I hope you come to see it too!
