Making the 20 minute drive home, from Bakersfield, this morning I was thinking about the Journal 52 prompt for this week:
"Week 42: MagicFor this week’s prompt, think of something magical. Maybe it’s a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, a magical place, mythical creatures, fairies, or even some magic potions for those of you ready for Halloween!"
Well, I'm about finished with Halloween, maybe one more card to go with the book of spells. (see my last post) So, my mind was wondering about what I wanted to do that would incorporate "Magic". I kept going back to the Harry Potter movies (I'm a super fan of Harry Potter ya know) I loved the Sorting Hat in the very first movie and decided to go with that. I had to look up some pictures on the internet to remember just what it looked like........I have slept since the last time it was on TV, even though I do own all of the Harry Potter movies, the internet was faster......grin!
I started by sketching it out then out lining it with a bold sharpie and laying in some of the darkest shadows, then a thin tip Sharpie for a little more detail. I added the words in a scratchy style font and some color with a water brush and marker ink. It is a little rustic looking but I'm amazed that it looks like the Sorting Hat.....kind of......LOL and of course the Sorting Hat put Harry Potter in the Griffindor group!
Thanks for stopping by, please let me know you came by and if YOU think it looks like the Sorting Hat.
