Monday Monster - digi-freebie & challenge
Isn't he cute?!!! This little monster was drawn by Fred Jr., yes, my 10 year old son Nolan has inherited the drawing bug as well, so much so, I have run out of places to keep all his cartoons/drawings/comic books LOL! To avoid boredom ( day 2 into the Summer Holidays) I asked Nolan to draw me stuff - " Like what, Mom?" - " I don't know, maybe a cute creature or monster holding a flower - so I can put my flowers on it". Ten minutes later, he came back with this cute little monster AND completely inked - with a stem and leaf so you can add your own flower. The kid amazes me.
Like all kids, especially ones with expensive tastes ( cough Wii, cough Nintendo DS) he was thinking dollar signs LOL! So I told him, "how about if the Peeps out in blog land email me or link up cards they have made using this monster, "I" will give you 20 cents for each card made?"
Sound like a challenge? LOL! Maybe we can entice him to make more ;)
-DollarStore dotty paper
-Monster coloured with prismacolor pencils and OMS
-I added stickles to the purple spots ( please NOTE: I was told the spot between the eyes is NOT his nose -- but please use your artistic license ;) LOL
-I used pop dots on the flower ( 2 small flowers from Fred's Flowers v2 Pointy Petals Pack)
-white glaze pen on teeth and eye highlights
- scalloped circle is hand punched with my corner rounder - don't look too close! LOL
Here is the monster:
Please click on him to enlarge, then right-click on him and save the image to your harddrive.
If anything, please comment on this post and tell Nolan what you think of his monster. He would love to read your comments :))
