CS Designs Something Different

I just made this Art tag and I must say I have fallen in love with this color combination. The focal point of this tag is one of my original Arty Expression #1 digital designs and although she can be quiet pleasant to look at, here she is has an aura which is  little on the darker side. I always I like to create much of my own elements to use in my art and the purple backgrounds used here are pieces of my doodle art and the green textured background is oil pastels. The beads are hand made, which I have colored with pigment ink.

I had so much fun participating in a few challenges around the web a couple of weeks ago that I decided to try it again this week. Some of the challenges I decided to join this week are quite different from the usual challenges you see all over. You might want to check them out yourself.

Goth, Steampunk and the Macabre:
Forever Night is a brand new challenge blog which is caters to the more unusual, and edgy Art. If you want a break from the usual cute and cuddly go have a look this new blog, their challenges will focus on Goth, Steampunk and the Macabre. Favorite Background: That’s the latest challenge on Vicki Romaine’s Cheerful Stamp Pad. I have always loved making my own backgrounds and have pretty much tried every background technique imaginable even making my own hand screen paper but my all around favorite has to be my hand drawn doodle paper. I use this on everything. It’s quick and therapeutic and looks really cool at the same time. Even the tiniest piece makes a great impact. I used a Pigma Micron 05 permanent black pen but any other kind or color pen will do.
