Creativity Spark

Hey everyone. Yesterday I mentioned a project I was working on and I finished it this morning and I've got pics to share with you!

This project is for my upcoming week at Pilgrim Lodge. The theme for the week is Arts Alive and we're supposed to bring something creative that we've made that expresses ourselves. This is what I came up with:

First I gather all of my materials:


 Now that I have everything that I'll need I take the yardstick and draw five parallel lines. I then continue by adding a few measures out of a favorite piece of music. In this case- When You Believe.


The next step is to do a green watercolor background and add some swirls in acrylics.


After letting it all dry, I outline each swirl in sharpie and go over the acrylics with pastels.


The next thing I do is to write a different word or phrase in each swirl:





I do some final touch-ups, add a signature and TA DA!


I'm very pleased. Anyway, Olive Tree is coming over tonight :) and I got one question on the last post from MadiShea.

So to answer that, I much prefer reading in the sun to dancing in the rain.
