A Monday Catch up

Good morning all, 
I hope you had a lovely weekend. 
Our workshop on Saturday went really well, and then yesterday I had a lovely day off. 
Well, I say day off. 
Housework and gardening. 

Today I have a tutorial to share with you.
It is for one of the samples that I have created for the Lavinia  shows on The Craft Store this Friday. 
The lovely Leonie will be demonstrating. 
Thank you everyone who have messaged me and asked when I will be back on tv. 
I have taken the decision to stop doing the shows.
(I just don’t feel confident enough after having Long Covid , it really has knocked me for six. )

I started by masking the area and stamping my images in black Versafine ink. 

Gradually building up my scene. 

Next I added some ink to the background and created the moon. 

Then some stencil work, I do love to add gentle stencilling in the background. 
Also some ink splats, you know how much I adore adding these. 

Now I did spritz my stencil and get a bonus background.
( pop back tomorrow to see what I did with it ) 

Next I removed the low tack tape and started adding more detail using chalk pastel pencils. 

Look how the shadows can be created. 

The finishing touches were added using a gel pen and a posca pen. 

Here is a closer look 

Thanks so much for popping in today. 
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, 
Take care 

Much love and hugs

Beautiful design as always, Jo. As long as you don't stop doing your video tutorials because I think I am addicted to them. You have taught me such a lot, thank you
