It’s just a bit of silliness, really.
But it’s artistic silliness.
My daughter was eating some candy corn and remarked how fun it would be to make candy corn jewelry.
Then I remarked how fun it would be to try to draw a lovely Candy Queen completely covered in candy corn accessories.
And now, for the rest of the story…
I drew the original on tracing paper so I could play around with some different backgrounds. I thought a bright orange sun looked cool behind her and I also decided to change the crown design for this one.
And the Queen has to have jewels.
I made the second Queen using the original crown design. I stamped old handwriting all over a sheet of cardstock and then layered the original drawing over it. Then I stamped some birds onto transparency pieces and moved them around until I liked the way it looked.
I turned it into a card and stamped an envelope to match. Because of the size of the drawing, however, I had to cut most of the wing off so I knew I needed to reduce the image before making more cards.
*is anyone actually reading this? * 🙂
Of course, the reduce/enlarge feature on my printer busted as I attempted the first one, SO I had to take them to Office Max and get some reduced color copies made. The colors were altered quite a bit by their printer.
*note to self*
Get a new printer.
