CREATIVE TUESDAY!

Hello and welcome to another Creative Tuesday!!!  This week, our prompt was "store front".  Store Front?!?!?!  I have zen doodled a bunch, collaged, done some mixed media, even did fancy lettering, always sort of trying to not actually do conventional art.  But store front?  How the heck am I going to do this one!!!!

Well, I tried the rational approach, trash one.  I tried it again, trash two.  The third time, I just said this is it.  I used my watercolor pencils, and sketched a store front, as best as I can.  I tried to add some textural touches, like bricks and a plant.  I wrote in fancy writing.  And I used water to turn the pencils into paint.  This is the result!


What do you think???  I  think it is good.  Perhaps just to me, but that is fine!  I am proud to be doing things I don't normally do.  That is why I am so committed to CT's blog!  I like working outside my comfort zone!  I never thought I would until Creative Tuesday.  You should definitely check it out.  You will totally be inspired!!

  5. Your shop looks very Parisienne and chic. Wonderful job. I think that this challenge has really been a tough one, as it stretched me as well.

  22. Its there now, you may have just gotten there before I had the whole post up. It took me a while to get all my info in. I didn't post everything I made for her because I want it to be a surprise for her when she opens the box. I just hope she likes it. Its so hard to tell what someone else will like. I just asked her what her favorite color was and I took it from there. I am so excited, I want to get some stuff up on Etsy now. I will use her pictures after I have shipped just so I have something to post. I am a big Tim Holtz fan so I used some of his stuff for her, but not everyone is into the grunge, so I made it plan because her blog is plan. I am so excited:-)
