Newbie from Southern CA

Post by bahacca on Mon Jun 03, 2013 12:36 pm

I'm Vanessa and I live in S. CA, about 15 minutes from Disneyland. I bought my first (really cheap, really awful) kit about 2 years ago after I paid $30 to have my girls' faces painted at a carnival. I watched the artist and said "I can do that". After seeing another artist at my daughter's friend's birthday party, I decided to buy a set of REAL paint and nice brushes so I could do neater designs than goopy ladybugs. This past Friday I sat for 6 hours and painted cheek designs for probably 100+ kids at a school carnival for my daughters' school. I'm enjoying the creative outlet and the time spent with my daughters. I'm looking forward to expanding my talents by getting ideas and inspiration from others. Lisajoyyoung on YouTube was my savior for that carnival. I cannot count how many unicorns and sharks I did!

Yep. 6 hours. The only declines I had to do were a chipmunk and ironically a puppy. We didn't have time to do full faces and I'd never really practiced just a face of a dog as a cheek design! Funniest request was a Darth Vader with a moustache. I wish I had had my camera with me to show that one, though i can probably recreate it.

If you ever need it again I have a cheek art puppy that took around 3 minutes to do:

Here's the first day I got the paints. It was science night at my girls' school, so I painted them up.


Here's a unicorn I did like a million times Friday-got her from Lisa Joy Young.


A turtle design I did today on myself. You'll see lots of turtles from me. I LOVE turtles and ladybugs, so I love to paint them;-)

Hi Cathleena! How old is your daughter? If you are in Orange, maybe we can meet up at a park and have the girls play while we paint!
