Art From The Heart

Good morning everyone, 
I hope today finds you well. 
Welcome to another new follower, I am so chuffed to have you join us. 

I am popping in with another Lavinia sample for you , 
I do hope that you like it. 

I really enjoyed creating this one, and it is just a bit different from all the others. 
You know I am constantly trying to come up with variations on designs. 

I started by using one of the circle masks, the outer one this time. 
I added some gentle inking 
This is what I created. 

Next I added some stamping, using copier paper to mask off areas. 

This is what I created. 
Next I added some light and shade using my chalk pastel pencils,  I really think this brings out 
all the beautiful detail of the stamps. 

Next some snow and shadows. 

I love trying to create a 3D look
When it is just a flat piece of card 

Here is a closer look 

Such a majestic beast. 

Thanks as always for joining me today 

Much love and hugs 
Jo xxx
