Who Will Rescue Me?

This is a scene from Disney's The Rescuers. I loved this movie as a kid, but I really love the art behind it. The scene is found in the beginning credits with a series of other pictures. There is now animation these are really just art scenes that they play music too and zoom up and out on. The music is sad but it is a really pretty bunch of scenes. It appears to be watercolor, chalk, or maybe oil. I really don't know.

It's really cool. I hope this might spark some creative and crafty ideas! I am in the middle of multiple projects combined with the busyness  of the holidays. I hope you enjoy the season.

I LOVE the colors in this one!!!!!!!!!!!

This is an actually scene or animation still from the movie which took me a long time to find. However, it is a very eerie and creepy swamp. Kinda cool.

Coming Soon...

Sorry Guys! I was been so occupied by work free-time has been hard to come by:(  However,  I am trying to finish a picture for a art competition. The deadline is soon...too soon! I was able to doodle something which I will post soon. I am thinking of starting another blog.  Anyways, fall is rolling in and it is a great time to create some festive decor for the season.

  1.   Tissue Paper Leaves: Well, look up leaf patterns on the internet and print them. Then, trace the leaf patters on tissue paper ( colors: red, yellow, orange, brown) very carefully with a marker. Cut out the tissue paper leaves and tape them on your windows so it gives the effect of falling leaves. If you prefer stock paper or just paper instead of tissue paper that is perfectly fine. Both work.
  2. Paper Masks: Online you can find outlines of masks that look like a coloring sheet. Prints these guys out and decorated them. Or trace them onto stock paper or scrapbook paper. Punch out a hole on either side and tie string. You can also decide to decorate your paper mask to add to a scrapbook or just hang it up somewhere for looks! From cute to spooky, from halloween to a party, from a costume to artwork your mask can be numerous things! I will send in some examples!

Collecting Ideas-The Why, How, and Getting Started

   I have grown a liking to illustrations of old fairy tales. They are classic, vintage, and inspiring. How?
Every illustrator depicted the story differently making it rather enjoyable to pick and choose what you like. As a craft project they can be used as cards, gift tags, paper dolls, ect... (if you want more ideas let me know). For writers, they can give you inspiration on what to write about and a romantic element to your stories. For everyone else, I believe these illustrations are ideas to add into your collection. Creating a space for your ideas is very helpful when projects come up. A image file folder, a binder,  a notebook, or a box are just a few examples of places to store your ideas.  The most important thing is collecting ideas in your own way that are yours. 
I will be posting more images.

The Art Of Mermaid Lagoon

From Walt Disney's timeless classic, Peter Pan, I  have found a captured heart for the movie's "mermaid lagoon". The background is full of color and just makes me smile. I love the vines on the and the sea life on the rocks. It favors much of Mary Blair's artistic style, who was one of the main animators for the movie.  Many people have painted the mermaid scenes in Peter Pan, but I am   drawn to one in particular. Brittney Lee created a charming piece that I find so inspirational and just fun. The fun in playing around and making a mess all for the sake of your own project!
