Partying - Assignment 5

Make Art That Sells Assignment 5 Final - Party Goods.

It's all over now :*{ No more Make Art That Sells class work. I had a BLAST on this last project. I decided to work on bits which would be appropriate for a little girl's party. So I came up with these three Flower Girl characters and laced some of the little icons from their dresses into the ribbon-like patterns on the paper goods:

My favorite part of this assignment sketching out ideas. I became fascinated with folk art and florals. Below are a couple pages from my books:

I was tempted to render my final pieces in paint, (I have Folk Art brand paint sitting on my desk!) but I'm kind of a novice with the "finished" look in paint, so I shy'ed away from it. I can see this in my cut paper technique too.

Party-party!
