The colors are definitely "manly," hence the name for the Tuesday Trigger - "Mantastic." The shape reminded me of both raindrops and flower petals. So here is what I came up with. For the Walk, Dance or Just Get Wet design, I created a stencil from a silhouette I found on the internet. I used the part I cut out as a mask, and sprayed red and blue ink to create a positive and a negative design using Balzer Designs' blazonry stencil. Then I stenciled the man using black acrylic, and wrote on him with a Sakura silver gel pen. It wasn't enough, so I stamped a little, doodled a little, and eventually was happy. I like how the colors and the shape of the blazonry stencil echo the beautiful rug. These are color combinations I don't often use. So I was happy for the challenge. And I love the saying -- make the best of every situation!
For Run With Scissors June 9 prompt (what would you shout out loud today), I made a background using the colors in the Tuesday Trigger, taking my cue from a great Art Journal Cafe tutorial. I love this saying. We can't just sit and wish and dream about our future -- we have to go out and make it. Seize the day!!
