Life With Wee People: Minion Painting 101
You may not think you can paint because you have it in your head that it has to look like something, some place or someone. That's not true. You can express yourself just by your use of color. How you scrape it, blend it, contrast and highlight says a lot about you.
Painting is a very personal thing. When you create paintings for your blog they don't have to be a 20 x 20 canvass like we are using. Get yourself 8 x 10 panels and do what ever you want, then scan those puppies in. You can uses bits and pieces of them to create very interesting backgrounds for your text art to float above.
Step one to being original and pimping your blog (LOL).
Minion Painting is all about expressing yourself with color. You can use one or you can use every tube in the store. Just do it and see what you get... Think happy thoughts. Play some music. Have fun being creative. Stop comparing yourself to other people! Start your first drawing and see where it goes. You may end up with some very interesting spot art for your blog posts (LOL). Just sayin... :-)
Watch the Minion Painting 101 movie and see if you can identify the section of the painting I used to create this background. I started with the background at 100%, then made the first overlay photograph I took of trees on Fifth Ave in Manhattan a transparency at 45%, the CC Ambassadors at 50%, the little minions at 85% and the text art at 100% with a drop shadow of 8.
Playing in layers can be a beautiful thing... Painting your own layers and taking your own photographs to merge together? Priceless... :-)
Wordy C Club Chaos Bootcamp requires a team effort. Google domination is serious business. We're going to have lots of fun with the love links... There will be homework assigned (LMAO). Seriously! Gotta get you to page one of Google. Can't do that if you don't do your homework. The grade is your page ranking bay-bay. There will be Skype par-tays involved for the members of the fan pages, so stay tuned for the CyberMinions.net schedule of events and keep your eyes peeled for the Facebook comment links of your Ambassadors. ;-)
