Good Monday morning friends, it is a new challenge week at Smudgy Antics!
The theme this week is “Reptile Rampage!”
Reptile: 1.) Any various cold-blooded, usually egg-laying vertebrates of the class Reptilia (think snake, lizard, crocodile, turtle, dinosaur, or dragon).
Reptile: 2.) A person being regarded as despicable or treacherous.
Rampage: Violent or excited behavior that is reckless, uncontrolled, or destructive.
We are asking you to incorporate the spirit of a reptile rampage into your project for the week. There are several directions you can take this prompt. You can use an image of a reptile or you can use papers or textures that resemble a reptile’s skin, or in the case of a turtle, its shell. You can throw caution to the wind and get reckless in the creation of your project by ripping, tearing, and distressing a project almost to the point of destruction while still maintaining an awesome piece. This theme would be great for art journal pages too. Show us, through your art, a time where you may have been reckless or on a rampage. Too much? How about doing a journal piece or ATC about someone or something you regard as despicable or treacherous? If it is NOT EVIDENT as to how you used the challenge theme REPTILE RAMPAGE in your project, please explain it in your blog post.
The sky is the limit. The more creative, the better! All artistic mediums are accepted as long as a stamped image is used somewhere in your project and you follow the challenge rules which are posted on the left side-bar. We can’t wait to see your creations!
So for some inspiration here is my DT piece:
I have used “Snake Woman” courtesy of Smeared Ink! (Follow the link to get yours.)
This digi is a brand new release at Smeared Ink! There are several new releases that have been added to the store! Follow the above link, to check out all the fabulous stamps that are now available!!!!
How did I make this??
Well I found a frame at the thrift shop, painted it with black Gesso, then added my colored image. I used Modeling Paste and added the snakes that I found at Publix (A grocery store.) I taped up my image so I would not get Gesso and Modeling Paste on it. After I placed my snakes and everything was dry, I painted it again with black Gesso, then I added Rubz in blue to the snakes and silver to the outside.
I colored my image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I added Tim Holtz crackle paint to the Snake Woman’s flesh. Too bad the photo does not show it well, because in RL it looks really cool!
I hope I have inspired you to come and play the newest challenge at Smudgy Antics! Also swing on over to the challenge blog and take a look at what the other DTs made and our GDT they are truly awesome!
