Summer Challenge Day 16 - Ladybugs

Hi there!

Earlier this week I pulled out my old art tool box from college and found some fine sable brushes that I figured I could use for my nail art. Also in the box were some aluminum tubes of acrylic paint, but the tubes split at the creases and the paint dried so I bought some new acrylic paint. I have been wanting to try acrylic painting for the detailed nail art, instead of polish, because I thought it would be easier. I don't know about that though....I had a really hard time keeping my hand steady for this!


For my ladybug design, I drew inspiration from some scrapbook paper.





Here are some sketches of the early designs - I didn't even bother cleaning up. My family took a vote on which ones they liked and the blades of grass with ladybugs got one vote, and the abstract flowers and plant with ladybugs got two, so that's what I went with. Haha



Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
