Creative Tuesdays: Bubblegum Machine

 

It's a "pop art" kind of piece for this CT's Bubblegum Machine challenge. And, just happens to fit in nicely for Valentine's too. You know me, always liking to challenge myself and mixing things up, I decided to make this have that 1960's sort of feel. Bubble gum machines are, after all, getting kind of retro too. :)

I had a fair bit of fun with this and hope you did too? Time to find out what you guys did.... I'll be visiting everyone who signs up tonight and again tomorrow.  See you then.

  2. how romantic! look at all those hearts! I don't think about a certain era or time period when I work on a piece but I like that you do.

    nice new blog makeover but I still like the dotty hill name though.

    1. Thank you, Lissa. I have Alex to thank for the makeover as, like you, she likes doing that. I didn't get around to it so she jsut asked for my input and did it herself.

      Yes, i was jsut thinking playing off of the idea of bubblegum going "pop" when you chew it and then thought of the pop art idea and then with my colours decided it was getting very valentines so went with it, although my initial drawing already had hearts! :)

  3. I love the colors and style you did this in. I always have good intentions to join in and never get it done. Today, I hope, my inspiration follows me through until I complete one.

  4. That is one full bubble gum machine–will there be room for all the quarters? :-) Very nice!

    1. The funny thing is it looks like it only takes quarters but doesn't give you any gum! I took out the dispensing tube below as I found it distracting. :) Hahah
