Elfsisters' Art Adventure - A Big Sticky Mess - Week 6

Yup - I had way to much fun this week! I think that this whole thing is just fabulous and the more we get into the more fun I'm having. Now, since I had so much fun there are a lot of pictures - so brace yourself!

This weeks assignment was to drip something on the page,
close it, and come up with a print! 
Let's just say I really got into it :)

Layer 1
Gatoraid and Blood

Yes I said blood! I started with the bottom of my red gatoraid...
And then decided blood was a liquid and added a heart! 

Layer 2
Diet Coke

The Diet Coke didn't add much color,
but it smudged things some! 

Layer 3

I was surprised that the coffee didn't make it darker!
I think that's when I really started having fun, 
seeing how things really interact with paper :)

Layer 4
Strawberry-banana Juice

This one was another big surprise because the juice is THICK,
but it only added a little bit more pink to the page.
So I got crazy...

Layer 5

Yes syrup. It dried amazingly well! But it took a full day...
I'm not done though...

Layer 6

I wanted some COLOR but I was determined to stay with foods.
So I added chocolate - and its STILL not dry!
I'll be sticking a piece of wax paper in there :P

Ok I wanted to get more drawing done this week, but I didn't.
BUT this is my "secret" piece I was designing and it technically works
for both last month and this month! I have a triskele, and the writing is in Elvish!

What do you think?

Now make sure you go check out Meri's Blog to see what she did and get the assignment for this upcoming week in the Wreck This Journal! I'm reading the Hobbit and I'm hoping to get to draw some things inspired by that for our June LOTR challenge :)

Elfsisters' Art Adventure - Time for June's Adventure! - Week 5

This week has been chaotic, nothing you guys want to hear about, but I do have to apologize because I haven't had the time to post or do any drawing this week! Grrr.... I still have one more thing that I really want to draw for May's challenge so if I ever get it done I'll include it in one of my posts. 

This week was FUN! I think I'm going to enjoy all the pages that involve destruction :D This week we were supposed to get our hands dirty and make hand or finger prints. My friend Gypsy helped me with this weeks assignment, and we recruited my brother to be photographer. First she had to play in the mud puddles:

Then we found a good patch of mud...

I think the rest is self explanatory! 

I'm happy with it! 

Next Week's Wreck this Journal assignment is: Drip Something Here: (Ink, paint, tea) Close this book to make a print. Have fun! I'm tempted to use my coffee, but since there's a page relating to that one I'll pick something else...

It's June and that means a new Art Challenge! Meri, my dear elf-sister who I co-host this with picked the theme this month, but really, we both are huge Lord of the Rings fans :D She more so than I but...I'm becoming more so day by day :D I'm going to see how quickly I can get through the books, who thinks I can read all for (starting with the Hobbit) in a month? 

If you joined in the fun this last week please leave your post about it in the comments below. I'm exhausted and I'm not going to make a linky thing :p
