MORE STRIPEY STUFF - days 5,6 & 7

Hi and I hope you are not getting too bored seeing stripes!  I am really enjoying this free course :D   Milliande's videos are just brilliant to watch and I have really learnt a lot about using different mediums...not so scary now hahaha !!! 

Day 5 was to draw around our hand to make a zebra! I worked in acrylic for this one.


Day 6 was to draw a millipede but mine is more like a caterpillar!!!  I used Stampotique legs for this instead of the download & worked in waterproof wax crayons.  I got fed up with trying to paint facial features so ended up getting a pen out hahaha!!!


Day 7 was all about stripes you see in windows.  Again I used acrylic paint.  I also substituted the dowload for a zebra!


If you fancy taking a look at this course just follow the link on my sidebar,  Take care & have fun whatever you are doing!  HUGS XXX

Karen thank you so much for your sweet comments, they are always appreciated, and I am loving your 'stripes' !

Kathy said...

These are fantastic, Karen. The one at the top I especially love - it reminds me of African art, and also of some of the Aboriginal stuff I saw in Oz.

WAAAAAAAY TO GO Karen me lovely!!!

Your pages are all AMAZING and so gorgeously colourful. I'm trying to put more colour into mine... got four on the go now cos I was a bit behind when I found the challenge.... and also cos I reckon I've bitten off more than I can chew already this year...lol

I'm flitting from one thing to another ...like a squirrel looking for nuts...why can't I just settle on one thing at a time...me heads buzzin ;-p

Keep em comin' missus and oh by the way I can understand why DH didn't want you to 'adam ant' your gorgeous portrait. I did it to mine and regret it now... que sera sera :D

hugs

You are really on a zebra kick. I know I haven't been here for awhile, and for that I apologize. Ever since the first day of the new year, I have been scrolling along, watching you create zebra after zebra. I love that each of these has a different face and style. And your Zentangle is amazing. You have REAL talent. But, like your hubby, I like your lady's face without stripes. However, I don't draw, so I might like it once it's revised. Will try to make it back for the next addition.
