Step-by-Step: Googly Ghost

Let’s have some more fun with googly eyes!!

Want to offer some googly eyes to your designs but don’t have a lot of them on hand? You can make them stretch twice as far by making your characters WINK! 😉

This little ghost is SUPER simple and only requires ONE googly eye!

Step 1:

Using a round brush loaded with your favorite blue (I’m using FAB Shimmery snow petrol!), outline the curves of your ghost, and then paint around that for a background.

Step 2:

Fade the edges of your blue background. I love to use my Cameleon large blending brush for this!

Step 3:

Add some stars! I’m using my Ooh! Star Flip stencil and a finger dauber loaded up with yellow. First I lay down the stencil and use a makeup remover wipe to wipe away the blue, then apply the yellow paint, and finally tap on some yellow glitter before removing the stencil. This gives me crisp, clear, bright yellow stars that are glittery only ON the stars!

Step 4:

Fill in the ghost with white. I’m using Wolfe white and a round brush. Add a little dimension with some light blue if you wish!

Step 5:

Clean away a spot where your google eye will go. I use mini daubers to do this but a wipe works too, or a clean brush. Using a small round brush loaded with black (I’m using Wolfe black), outline the design and add the mouth and winking eye. Add a little tongue if you like!

Step 6:

Adhere one googly eye with Pros-Aide II (it is easier to remove than the original Pros-Aide, which I reserve for glitter tattoos), and finish it off with some chunky glitter! I used Vivid Candy Cosmos up in the sky, and Amerikan Body Art Biosphere on the ghost.

Step by Step Winter Llama

Here’s a fun design that will last not just over the holidays, but the winter season as well!

1 – Using a round brush loaded with white, paint the shape of the Llama’s head, and a dot for the hat’s pom pom.
2 – Using a mini feather stencil HAS5086 (from the HAS Boho stencil set), create a forest of trees with different shades of green. I love using this stencil brush for this part!
Using a round brush, fill in the llama’s nose and ears with pink, and the hat/scarf with red.
Using a fine, round brush loaded with black, add some outlines and details. I’ve also added a touch of white as highlights on the nose and eyes. I love using Wolfe Black and Wolfe White for these.

Using your stencil brush loaded with white, add some snowflakes with your favorite snowflake stencil. Here I’m using an Ooh snowflake stencil!
Finish off your design with some glitter!! I’ve used some glitter cremes here as well as liquid bling.
