This little dress just cracks me up - ha, ha - maybe it just makes me boil. Oh jeepers - I'd better quit now!!! Look what happens when I'm tired and creating, or perhaps writing - LOL! BAD JOKES! REALLY BAD!
I just love the vegetable couture line from Lockhart Stamp Company. Karen was a personal chef for some time and I always love the little food creations she pens for us! This little Cobb Salad dress is so much fun to color. So this evening when I sat down to create, I pulled out my Prismacolor pencils once again because I just needed to relax. I should have been snapping pictures while I colored, so that you could see the layers of color that went in to this creation. Shoot anyways - that will have to follow at another time. But I hope that you can pick up the little subtle color changes within the leaves because I was thinking of Mesclun when I was coloring it. Also when I'm a little more ambitious I will color two of these images so that I can cut out some of the lettuce leaves and give it added dimension :D
Then it was time to design the layout. The egg shape was just popping out at me and I thought why not just play with that element and emphasize it. I LOVE the end result and will probably use this layout again with other images just to test drive it to see how effective it is without the egg. For a little texture I pierced the circle only on the white - it's all about the assymetrical design I have going here. I wish my brain weren't so fried - then I'd be able to try and give you a logical explanation, but there is no hope for that tonight (especially considering the sappy joke at the beginning of this post - LOL!)
So let's continue to celebrate! The invitation has been sent, the goodies are stashed, and now it's only a couple more days until the party begins. I can hardly wait to have fun with you girls this Friday!
