Flying over the islands and on our way in and our way out was magical! From my airplane window I got to see, Pearl Harbor, the beautiful landscapes and cityscapes, a whale in the wild for the 1st time, and a new island being formed from an underwater volcano eruption. it was beautiful! I think that because I never got to see it from the ground it is a place I really want to go.
I am in love with the Art Deco style and I attempted to recreate it, I used colored prismacolor pencils and acrylic paint to create the page as seen here. I like my girl and the floral pattern in the circle behind her but I think it was my color choices that made it not really feel Art Deco-ish, and on top of that I didn't plan ahead for a place to actually write "Hawaii" on it!
So I went to the other Artful chicks asking for help, actually is was more like "HELP!" I received awesome ideas from the ladies, but the one I hadn't thought of was digitally altering it!
I took this photo of my page and uploaded it into my photoshop program, Originally I was just going to add text, but when I went scoping the internet for inspiration I decided to go a slightly different route trying to work the Art Deco style I wanted back into the piece.
I used some vintage Hawaii brochures and postcard images and cropped them down put for the green and blue spaces, I then brought the opacity down to about 60% so that they didn't overshadow my hula girl and I love how it turned out!
The page still doesn't have the full Art Deco feel I wanted but I think I got some of the style back that I was looking for as well as adding some depth to the piece,
I hope you enjoyed my very basic review of my process!
If there is ever anything you would like more details on in my process ask and I will see what I can do!
Big Hugs and Mushy stuff!
