Welcome to my world in blog land. AJ's Design Artz will be dedicated to my artistic endeavors in card design, coloring, art journaling, mixed media design, and the occasional alternative side of me. Thanks for joining me in my journey.
First I want to apologize for my MIA. Life just got in the
way and I had to take a short break, but now I am back in full swing. I had to
give up most of my design team positions because of my life happenings. I did,
however, manage to stay with Rick St. Dennis MFA.
For my first project in over a month, I would like to
introduce you to Fayuez. I decided to create an easel card. Rick’s image,
Fayuez, is modeled after the real Belly Dancer. Isn’t she beautiful? The minute
he sent this to me, I could not wait to set my Copics on her. Rick described
her as having bright red hair, and wearing pastel colors and thousands of
dollars of rhinestones. I hope I did justice to her.
I did ask Rick to start critiquing my coloring and, guess
what, he did. His one and only comment was that my light source was “wandering.”
I am so glad he used that rather simple term (you all know that I am a very
simple country girl from Oklahoma LOL) because I knew exactly where he was
talking about. My wondering light source happened in her skirt. So my challenge
to me is to practice more with clothes and light source.
On to the nitty gritty…my supplies I used for my little
piece of art are:
Copics: I keep a journal on the Copics I use for projects. Contact me and I can send you the list.
