Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge; G = grotesque.

This time the letter G was up for the Craft Barn Dictionary, and I had an entire list of words to pick from. However, I always try to pick a word that hasn't been used yet, and even though I haven't checked, I think this one will probably not have been used: grotesque. This image is a digi by Delicious Doodles, and it depicts a Selky. That is a mythical creature from Scottish tales. I coloured her with my Copics and added Perfect Pearls mixed with water to the tail.
I wanted the eyes to have a 'fishy' look, and so I left the pupils white instead of colouring them black. Then  I added Glossy Accents to further enhance that effect.
I stamped the waterdrops with a stamp by Rynn Design, and they look very realistic. I decided to add large drops of Glossy Accents which makes them look even more real. I think they look amazing.
And then of course I owe you my word: grotesque. I had a bit of trouble because I wanted the image to cover near enough the entire page, but then it also covered the word. I therefore cut the word loose on three sides, glued down the image, and then glue the word back on top of it. Works for me......
Hope you like it girls, and I'm off to have a looksy at your creations. Hugs Frea

  3. Kiwi in Timbertown great work of art, love the eyes and the ryn design stamps always stamp so beautifully and water droplets almost appear real

  4. Love how you have painted over the page and left places where the words are legible and also the definition. Don't think I best comment on the actual theme - LOL - bit scary. BJ

  7. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Love the "fishy" eyes and the whole interpretation - well done!

  8. Another beautiful page and with all the details your selkie feels like she is swimming out of the page to come and get you. Fantastic.

  9. Just love what you did with the Selkie Frea! For a grotesque theme she looks beautifully rendered and coloured. Love this! Thanks so much for sharing her on my Facebook Page :)
