So, I wanted to make a nebula galaxy outer space type art thing… I hate what I made!
At this moment, it isn’t even dry but I will hold my hope gor it to turn out till the very end.
This was my process…
First I spray painted an old frame (glass and all) with matte black spray paint.
Then, using a toothbrush and some white paint, I splattered the fuck out of the black… these are the stars… I wanted to add some other colors but I am LAZY!
Step C, I poured on some really runny white paint. (1 part acrylic, 1 part pva, 1 part water) and then, using a straw, I blew it all over the fucking place… if you follow me on Instagram then you will know that I had a poll on there discussing the jizziness of this… it legit looked like someone had just sneaked up and shot their load all over my fucking space…
Number 4, I created a steaming pile of nuclear waste… by pouring other colours on top of the white. Using the same ratios and same method.
Finally, I painted another canvas with the left over paint, cause I am cheap and throw nothing away.
The finished products, I hear you begging me not to show you… Well, too bad!
I will probably be painting over these… lol but that is okay. Not everything you create has to be great. I’m not about to throw in my paint brushes because of these two failures. I have learned that sometimes you have something in mind… you may plan the steps you will take to get there and even when you finish, it doesn’t meet the expectations you had in your head…
Love you all,
Amberley “Lemons” Griffin.
PS if you are wondering what the actual I am doing, I am using prompts as a kind of therapy to help me recover from the lemons life has given me. I would fucking love it if you joined in! To have a look at this week’s prompt, just look at the latest post in the “prompts project” category or hang out for next Friday when I will give a new prompt.
You don’t have to make painty art. You can do anything… like anything… seriously.
