Monday means Lavinia Homework

Good morning all, 
I do hope you are keeping well. 
A very good friend of mine has had a really rough time, 
As her husband is in hospital. 
It is so sad as all I can do is message her and support her. 
So I really do want to have a group hug. 
From the bottom of my heart , 
Honestly we need to help and support each other. 

So today I have some Lavinia homework for you. 
As you know I post this every Monday on our 
Lavinia For You Facebook page. 

This week, 
We are going to give our piece a title (just for fun ) 
Mine is 

Hide and Seek 

I thought we could just make an inky background
Great way to practice your blending 

Just choose 3 colours, 
And have an inky ‘ work out ‘

Add some water splats. 

And then some stamping, 

I used a coloured VersaFine ink pad alongside the black one. 
This helps to build up depth. 

Next some spotlighting using an acetate moon mask , plus I blended some brown ink around the edges. 

I added some colour with pencils. 

Some script stamping 

To add extra dimension I used a VersaFine pen and a clear embossing powder. 

Now you know how I love my Posca pens. 
They just add the finishing touches. 

Hopefully you can see the sheen on the flower..

This piece really made me smile, 
I know I am silly, 
But in my head , 
Floppy and Mopsy are looking for Cottontail. 
He is hiding , 
But he thinks he might be in trouble, hence his ears are down. 

I wonder what he did, ? 
That part of the story I will leave up to you .

Have a lovely Bank Holiday Monday 
Take care all 

Much love and hugs
