Paint Party Friday... Playing with Someone Else's Paper!


Last Friday, I am Rushmore shared a downloadable version of her painting in progress and invited us to play with it.  I thought it was such a cool idea - How could I resist?!?


The image on the left is I am Rushmore's original background and the image on the right is what I "saw"... A peacock!


If you would like to play too, you can download I am Rushmore's background here.

(Don't forget to stop by the Paint Party Friday blog for more fun and inspiration!)

  1. Kristin, this is fabulous! I wanted to try it to but was too busy with my paper to do much art (and the travelling sketchbook won).

    A fabulous peacock and an awesome use of iamrushmore's painting as inspiration!

  43. Peacocks are so cool! I had a comic in the works once which would include a man with a mansion with peacocks walking around the outside park... I never finished it though. ^^;
    Your artwork is amazing, love the look of those feathers!

  44. you!
    you!
    you!

    there is nothing more fun for me who is not able to do what you do than to see what you do and how your mind works to get you there!!!

    this is a beauty, kristin.

    and now that i am quite comfortable as your friend (yay) i have a request for you to consider. i don't give your comments enough of my attention and i want to. it's because the print is so small. any chance for a little larger fonts in the comments section?

    friends can be demanding, but in this case it's all about enjoying my lovely visits here. :^)

    happy weekend
    love
