In getting ready for this season, I went back and watched the previous two seasons and got my daughter hooked on it at the same time. While watching season one, I was struck by a bolt of genius, if I may say so myself, during the Buckingham palace scene (my all time favorite by the way). Here is my inspiration.
Sherlock laughing...be still my heart! Here is what I did.
So, doing this in the hotel room made me realize how good my lighting set up is! Plus I forgot my clean up brush, so I had a bit of a mess on my middle finger. And let's not even go into my sad little nubs :( The patch I have had on my middle finger for two weeks finally gave out, so everything else had to be cut down to match.
- Index - Representing John's hunting jacket with the leather patch at the shoulder, 2 coats of Finger Paints Black Expressionism with Nails Inc Noho in the corner.
- Middle - Representing the red pillow, 2 coats of Zoya Rekah "sponged" with Essence Do You Speak Love. I say "sponged" because I forgot to bring a sponge or saran wrap, so I scrunched up the plastic wrapper on the microwave popcorn provided with the room for a makeshift saran wrap. Worked pretty well! You can see it better in the first and last pics.
- Ring - Representing Sherlock's sheet, 2 coats of LVX Fantom.
- Representing the couch (I am sure it is called something fancier in the palace), I started with 2 coats of Barry M Lychee. I then stamped with Vivid Lacquer VL020 and Maybelline Bold Gold.
I LOVE how this turned out, despite not having all the tools I usually have and poor lighting for the pics. It turned out just like I envisioned! So rare that this happens!
What do you think? Are you a Sherlockian, like me? Did I nail my inspiration or do I just have a high impression of it? Gotta run, the boys are getting restless and we need to vacate the room. See you tomorrow!
