Reptile Rampage


It´s monday and time for the weekly challenge over at Smudgy Antics with this weeks theme - Reptile Rampage

Reptile: 1.) Any various cold-blooded, usually egg-laying vertebrates of the class Reptilia (think snake, lizard, crocodile, turtle, dinosaur, or dragon).
Reptile:  2.) A person being regarded as despicable or treacherous.

Rampage:  Violent or excited behavior that is reckless, uncontrolled, or destructive.

We are asking you to incorporate the spirit of a reptile rampage into your project for the week.  There are several directions you can take this prompt.  You can use an image of a reptile or you can use papers or textures that resemble a reptile's skin, or in the case of a turtle, its shell.  You can throw caution to the wind and get reckless in the creation of your project by ripping, tearing, and distressing a project almost to the point of destruction while still maintaining an awesome piece.  This theme would be great for art journal pages too.  Show us, through your art, a time where you may have been reckless or on a rampage.  Too much?  How about doing a journal piece or ATC about someone or something you regard as despicable or treacherous?  If it is NOT EVIDENT as to how you used the challenge theme REPTILE RAMPAGE in your project, please explain it in your blog post.

- I painted a canvas with white gesso and then covered it with light green distress ink. Covered the whole canvas with distress crackle paint and set to dry. When dried I covered the cracks in the paint with distress stain peeled paint. The edges is just black acrylic paint and some crackle paint. My thought behind the background was for it to look like reptile skin.

Coloured the "Skull Keeper Digi Single- Dragon Love" from Smeared Ink with distress markers and water. Covered it with MicroGlace and some varnish on the wings for shine.

The swirls is Tim Holts grungeboard that I first covered with distress stain and then some heat embossing and pens for detail.

Thank you for watching and do not forget to visit Smudgy Antics for amazing inspiration from my team mates and do take part in the challenge! :)
