Graffiti Canvas - Monster Love

I know I don’t stand a chance but I’m going to like you anyway.

This is my project for Michelle Kral's Life Book 2013 class

We were supposed to make a cool pop-up, card-like thing but I didn't have any large paper. So I went and cleaned my basement instead and found an old, forgotten canvas. It was painted peachy-tangerine - AWFUL!

So I spray-painted it. A lot! Using lots of fun Artistcellar stencils.

And then went to work making my creature.

Here are some close -ups:

Thanks for visiting.

This is even better here on your blog- I love the close ups. I need to get me some spray paints. I ended up using fabric sprays suggested by Traci Bautista because I had a nice flourescent pink. But I love the way the spray paints look. This lesson just blew me away. I feel like it opened a new world. Thanks for sharing your w.i.p pics. Love your monster. Oh, and I forgot to say- that tail is genius. xoxo
