I love shabby art, but have never been able to create like that. I tend to be very controlled in the way I work, which is something I really want to change.
I painted this cowgirl, and used the background techniques from Suzi blu's latest workshop to create a more shabby effect. I ended up making it too dark, so had to go in and add some stars and stamping to break it up a little. I just put her up on Ebay, and if she doesn't sell she will go into my Etsy store. I've got too many original paintings sitting in my art room, they need some love too!
It was fun doing something outside my comfort zone, and I'm already thinking the next girl I will do in this style. What a nice change from my usual 'pretty' backgrounds. How do you like her goofy looking cat :-)
Welcome to my little blog! My name is Betty,(or Pink, as people like to call me...) here you will find musings on art, life, and anything else that may come up. I hope to inspire, and encourage people to live out their best life!
