Art Challenge - The (worst) Way to Travel
I'm warning you now, today's post is me struggling through another art challenge. The original piece that inspired me was this one I found on Deviant Art by Joe Maccer called, "The Best Way To Travel"
Pretty, right? You may need to refer back to that picture, because my rendition is nothing like it!
I started out with a gorgeous holo from Northern Star Polish, Lunar Glow.
I thought this stamp from an unlabeled plate of mine would mimic some of the swirls and starbursts in the background. I stamped with Essie There's No Place Like Chrome.
This is so pretty and light and ethereal.
Let's enjoy one more pix of this moment, because it only goes downhill from here.
I thought that I could do a dry water marble for the large starburst patterns. I used Maybelline Plum Paradise, Sally Hansen White Tip, and Zoya Pippa.
I dotted on the three polishes and then did a needle drag through the dots.

Even my husband was having a hard time finding anything positive to say about it... All I can say is that I tried!
