Good afternoon all,
I do hope today is going well and that
you have a lovely weekend planned.
Today I have a lovely little piece of art to share with you.
I had a lovely email from one of my YouTube friends.
Bonnie Miller thank you so much
She gave me a bit of a Challenge.
You see she sent me this photograph and asked me to come up
with something using it as inspiration.
Day / Night
So I have been having a play...
You see I didn’t want to copy the piece but use it as inspiration and go on my own journey.
I started with choosing a tree stamp and the Lavinia Birch tree seemed just perfect
I added a couple of foxes too.
Next I used a moon mask to add the sun and the moon.
Then I added some background ink...
Using a piece of copier paper to keep the central divide.
Next I added some water splats over the whole design.
Followed by more stamping some some £1 stamps and Versafine Clair ink pads.
I added some more detail using my Posca pens and gel pens.
I was really happy with the way this was looking but it just needed some more atmosphere.
So I used my soft pastels and the side of my moon mask.
The final touches were added using my chalk pastel pencils.
I do hope you like it.
Maybe if you get chance you could have a go too.
Once again thanks so much Bonnie.
Tomorrow is our online workshop , I always look forwards
to these .
We are creating a little book , just for Pipin.
Must go and get my craft room ready.
Have a lovely weekend all.
Love and hugs
Special hugs for my Mum
