Second Floor Challenge #6 + Challenge Updates

Hey guys! What's up? I have some pretty cool projects to share with you guys today. At least I think that I do. I'm going to start us off today with the 6th Second Floor Challenge. It's only the second one that I have done, but I really like the way it turned out.

The challenge today was 'use a pencil', and this is what I came up with. I actually covered up a previous page that I didn't really like so much with plain white paint, and then used a pencil to draw circles all over the page, filled some of them in with paint, and left others normal. I really like the way that this turned out. It seemed to me to be a really nice remake, and since I don't normally use pencils in my work, it really stretched my boundaries. Also, I stopped with the layers a lot sooner than I normally would, so that was also a different thing for me.

Here is my In The Sun page for today; the prompt was to make a page about where your dream vacation home would be. I wasn't really able to pick just one; I would either pick Wooster, Ohio, where I'm originally from, so that I could be around my friends, or Costa Rica, as I went there on a missions trip a few months ago, and I really enjoyed it. The people were so nice, and even though there wasn't air conditioning, or any of the conveniences that we have over here, I still enjoyed it immensely. This is the page that I came up with.

Here is my 30-30-30 challenge page of the day; I used a couple of images and pieces of collage paper today instead of just one, and I really like the way that it turned out. After I had everything all collaged down, I used a black Portfolio oil pastel to outline everything on the page. It made everything stand out really nicely.

Here is a bit of a closer view of the details. Just so you can see it. :)

And here is the final project that I have to share with you guys today. This is my ICAD. Of course you guys could probably have told that by the shape. There were only three components to today's card. I used pink paint through a flower stencil, then used a black pastel to fill in the background. The last layer was, of course, the title.

And that would be that. See you guys tomorrow!
