TGIF: Spirited

Spirited by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s time for another “FingerPaintingFriday”: this time done with gloves on.

I tried medical-grade gloves thin enough to use my nails for drawing lines. Going to keep experimenting with this, but it was definitely cleaner creativity.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

TGIF: Burning Up

Burning Up by Karen Gadient, 2015

Bit of a different image for “FingerPaintingFriday”: watercolor and gouache, done with fingers and nails… but it’s two different scanned finger paintings, combined in Photoshop, with one of them color-reversed. I thought the effect was pretty darn cool and worth sharing.

Aside: I’m ruining my nails using them for finger painting (despite enjoying the effects―I love lines). I think I’ll be trying other ways to do it―including using gloves! So either you’ll be seeing scratch-less finger paintings from me next time or I’ll come up with different things for weekly prompts. Hm…

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

Glowing Kaleidoscopes for #KaleidoSaturday from previous weeks. The top one was created from digitally-edited scanned watercolor and the bottom one made from vector illustration hit with a glow filter.

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
