Come on girls ,let's paint something. We can be like a Picasso.
Do not afraid to use tools such us:an oil brush, a chalk,a pastel,a colored pencil, a marker etc.
Every month I will ask you to add some painted elements to your pages. In my gallery you will find some example of what I want you to do in April.

1. you can use any digital item from any designer... no restrictions!
2. You have to paint by yourself at least one flower . You can of course create and add more painted elements.
3.Post it in the Picasso Challenge Gallery and post your link back here, so we can all leave you some love!
Everyone who participates will receive a gift created by AneczkaW.

I have a special freebie for you ( you can , but you do not have to use it in your layouts)

Ooooo This is FUN!!! I'm in! :)

I am not sure if this is what you wanted? If not I will try again. I used the paint brush toot that had the basic flower shape. Then I colored the parts of it and used a splatter paint effect on it. I then did an outer glow.
Here is my layout

I did a second layout because I liked this challenge so much! I made the tulip flowers from scratch. I have never done that before and am pretty happy with how they turned out. I also made the background paper and butterflies too! This was a cutesy layout and I had so much fun doing something different.
Here it is

I have a clarification question ???

When you say we can use Do not afraid to use tools such us:an oil brush, a chalk,a pastel,a colored pencil, a marker etc are you saying it must be a digital graphics program tool??? Are you including actual physical pencils, paints or markers then scan the doodles to make them digital ????

Thanks, WyvernWench

Amanda both your pages are beautiful ! And you are right the second page is more what I wanted :-)
Tomorrow I will send you your posting bonus.

Yes :-) in Paint Shop Pro there are digital tools such as :an oil brush, a chalk,a pastel,a colored pencil, a marker .I want you to use them to create a flower.
I do not know if in other graphics programs those tools are the same or different names, but I hope every graphic program have such tools. You can use the Paintbrush but with a round shape and draw freehand to create your own flower.
We do not use the scanned doodles.

Thanks for the fun challenge! It was something new for me to try :)

I used the chalk tool in PSP and drew on the background paper to make it look like chalk drawings on concrete.

Here's mine: Bonnet Basset (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=11484&limit=recent)

I truely appreciate this challenge as it reminds me that I can't do everything ... :) Being a left handed pencil artist it is a touch crazy making to try and draw with a right handed track ball mouse and PhotoShop brush.

WyvernWench I love it !!!! And you are wrong you can do everything ! You did a wonderful job with that challenge !
p.s. and please post your page in my Picasso Challenge Gallery :-)

I had no idea how easy it would be to create flowers...I put it off until I realized my time was almost up. Yea! I made it before April 17!!

I used the crayon brush to create my flowers. Texas gals will recognize the bluebonnets, I hope :) I'm sure my grandmother had bluebonnets in her east Texas garden. The other flowers were figments of my imagination.

Here is the link to my layout.

thank you Sunnigal for your very creative page !

04-14-2008, 04:22 AM
Oh, wow... it took me a while to make my lo for the challenge and when I come back here what do I see... More AWESOME pb's!!! I'm soooo glad I made it before the 17th... :p lol

Here's my lo... Little Artists (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12033&limit=recent).

04-14-2008, 09:51 AM
There I go... goofing again!!!
Just re-read the challenge rules and realized I didn't draw flowers...

I'll make another lo for this challenge... Sorry for that!! :o

04-14-2008, 10:17 AM
it is O.K Livia . Your drawing in the box is really beautiful :-) I think you just have to add some flowers to this page and it will be great !

04-14-2008, 04:06 PM
Here is minehttp://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12061&ppuser=1753

04-15-2008, 11:19 AM
Wow, this was difficult, I have never drawn anything in Photoshop elements and I had to figure it out all by myself. And then I had to draw the flower with a right-handed mouse, while I am lefthanded.
So I think I did quite well, considering.......


04-15-2008, 07:42 PM
Ta-da! I got mine done. I went with the airbrush option. It's my favorite.
I figure that it is pretty impressionistic though not quite cubism. :)
Here it is. Thanks for looking.

04-16-2008, 01:43 PM
Ok... this challenge is too much fun, so I did another lo for it!
And THIS time I actually got it right and drew a FLOWER!!! LOL :p

Here it is... Once Upon a Time (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12174)

oh, and I'm also a lefty... ;)

04-16-2008, 07:39 PM
Ok no laughing at the drawn flower in the right corner of my lo. LOL:eek:

This was so much fun!
Okay i'm no artist, this proves it! Ha ha
The page is definately one of a kind.


Great Challenge!

04-25-2008, 03:48 AM
Yuk! another left hander here. But I did it, not good though.


04-25-2008, 05:12 PM
Hi, I uploaded my picture but don't know how to link it. It is in the right gallery at least, haha! This link may get you there, no promises though http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12669&limit=recent

Like some of the other ladies, I am left handed and mouse with my right. What I found out through this challenge is 1. I don't know how to draw in Photoshop. 2. I don't think you can draw in Memory Mixer 3. Paint is pretty good at letting you draw and 4. I can't draw with my right hand or mouse with my left. Maybe I'd need one of those tablets with a pen if I wanted better control of the results:o

thanks for letting me play, this was a first for me! Elizabeth
