WOYWW 306

A gracious good morning fellow crafters. Thanks for stopping by to see what kind of er mess my desk is starting out as today.

15/10/5

15/10/5

Yesterday I started the 15/10/5 challenge for Lifebookย . The idea is that we were supposed to be focused on just our art for 15/10/5 minutes. Well that worked well for me, except I essentially finished 3 backgrounds. Pretty good I guess. So today I plan to finish off the details without the stop watch at the ready. I used my newly acquired discontinued Adirondack acrylic paint dabbers and my Neocolor II crayons on three different substrates. From the left:

  • 15: Watercolor paper with earthtone colors listening to Epic soundtracks. Very dark for me. But as I worked a strange face emerged. I have been binge watching Supernatural lately, so this is no surprise. I plan on using my white pen collection to add crazy details.
  • 10: Backing from printed scrapbook paper with a variety of bright and light colors listening to Broadway tunes. This is definitely more my style. Had such fun messing with the background using my Artist Loft Academic Level Metallic White and whatever blue was on my recently used dabber. You can really see the brush strokes. ย Adding a mixture of greens/teals/blues to the bottom and sunshine yellow for the “globes”. First time using Winsor & Newton Ink for accent. I definitely see happy faces and sparkle dust in it’s future.
  • 5: Thanksgiving Day card with a Southwest color scheme listening to smooth jazz. Copper and gold found their way onto this small 5×7 piece with Terra Cotta, Hazelnut and Phthalo Turquoise. I plan on adding a sentiment to the positive message peaking out from behind the paints.

My art director oversaw the action from on high.

    I agree that the one image is rather dark. But today I’m watching an old Troy Donahue/Joey Heatherton movie called “My Blood Runs Cold” (or something like that and it’s very suspenseful). I like the brighter pages. And Newton is a real cutie!

    Oh yes, the time limit challenge from Lifebook! I have watched the lesson but have not yet done the project. You would think I would have the time for that! I am wondering if you aquired your new dabbers from Tuesday Morning store..lol..I got some of those there the other day. Thanks for stopping by my desk earlier ๐Ÿ™‚ Shel@PaperOcotilloStudio #17

    Pat thanks for your earlier visit to my space. Oh, and I was going to tell you, that my marker storage is formerly a spice rack, not a wine rack. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am loving your art director! This timed thing is interesting. I tend to loose myself for hours! Happy WOYWW! #65

    Hey Pat, thanks for the visit, sorry for the lateness of mine! I LOVE that idea of 15/10/5 mins and that you detail what music you were listening too. I bought a ton of those discounted paint daubers too – great minds. Isn’t Newton a sweetie. Cx #55

    Wonderful pieces of work Pat, and very impressive to achieve them in such a short time. Maybe it’s because you have such a handsome art director! :o) Annie C #60

    Love your busy desk! You have such a wonderful variety of styles there, and I love the dark one with the face just visible. Looks like you’ll have great fun working on these! Hope you have a great week, and thanks so much for stopping by my desk,

    Hello Pat,

    How fun. I think I’ll get out my timer and do the same thing. It will definitely be interesting to make myself stop no matter what point I am.
    Your background look great. I do love the one with the yellowish circles.

    Thanks for visiting me already.
    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace,

    Thanks for your kind comments. Your projects look like such fun! I like the idea of a timer to get it done by. I too have been watching lots of Syfy Stuff and adore “The walking dead” and “Vampire Diaries”
