#31DC2016: Polka Dots

I recently got to visit the Museum of Ice Cream and had way to much fun. They have a sprinkle pool you guys!! A SPRINKLE POOL!!!
Anywho... While I was there I took the following picture of a piece of art that was on display. I wish I knew who it was by but I didn't see a tag or anything giving credit. While thinking about todays polka dots prompt, I knew this piece would be great to recreate.


Today's look is all about layers. It took ALOT of layers of different pieces to get the final look. I decided to work dark to light and started off with a black base, Cirque Colors Memento Mori. I then went in with Mundo de Unas Fantasy and MoYou London Pro Collection XL 01 to stamp on purple polka dots. Next I free handed on my white swoops with OPI Alpine Snow. I then layered in the small blue outlines with China Glaze At Vase Value, added in my small black dots with Memento Mori and FINALLY went over the purple dots with China Glaze Are You Jelly? to hit the right shade of purple/violet. This look took me forever to do and I was so sad to take it off.



There you have it. I'm exhausted just writing about all the steps. See you tomorrow for stripes.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
