Day 3: Favorite Book or Inspired By A Book

 Wow, we are already on day three of the challenge Marketta, Marta, Carolina and I have been doing together. Today the challenge is favorite book or inspired by a book. One of my favorite books as a kid was Where The Wild Things Are. I think as a child I really loved the artwork, that all of the "wild things" were different. You can see the picture I used for my inspiration here.
 I'm really happy with the way it turned out for only spending about an hour from start to finish on it and I know I won't want to take it off for tomorrows challenge. There are a few things I would probably change or redo if I was going to wear it longer but overall I love it. I used OPI's Alpine Snow for the base and the rest is acrylic paint.




 What was your favorite book as a child? 
 Be sure to check out Carolina, Marta, and Marketta to see what they came up with today!

  4. These are amazing! Some of the best freehand I've seen!!! I guess the problem with challenges is that you always have to take off the good designs too soon.

  7. Your artwork is amazing! Wow! It makes me want to go read that book. I loved Harold and the Purple Crayon book. We checked books out of the library so we didn't see the same one too often.
