I decided to do a little bit of simple art for Valentine’s Day. It’s a bit wobbly, but it was fun to do. I used a couple flower decals I had hanging around and painted some black hearts on a light pink background.
The pink was made with a red shimmer (CG Red Curl Girl, I think) dropped into some creme white. Start with one drop of red and go from there until you get a color you like.
I just painted the hearts on freehand, using a small brush (obviously, as you can see by the wobbly-ness) I added some dots with my dotting tool and put some small pink flower decals in the middle of the hearts.
I also wore my tough-guy silver ring, which I bought for myself after I got my motorcycle license in Japan:
The rosey-stripe thing on my ring finger was a random decal (scrapbooking sticker?) that wound up in my nail box.
If you like nail art, I recommend getting a dotting tool. Mine looks like a pencil with a metal ball on the end, and when dipped in paint or polish, it leaves a perfect dot behind. It can really minimize frustration when trying to draw circles!
I have a couple other simple designs to show you too, as well as the Swirl tutorial, coming soon. Stay tuned! 🙂
