today I have something entirely different to show you, though it is still a card.
These days I stumbled across the wonderful designs of Dyan Reaveley, creator of Dylusions, and I spent about two night watching her videos. I am in love with what she does, ever since I first saw her works, but I don't have any of her spray mists and have actually shied away from the mess. I have a dedicated craft space, but it is in my living room and it's messy enough as it is.
However, right now I really wish I could afford to buy all her beautiful bright mists, and stencils and stamp sets.
Inspired by that feeling, I decided to follow one of her video tutorials and doodle a little - well a lot.
First I created random curved intersecting lines with my Copic Multiliner. Than I picked 4-5 areas for each pattern, doodling in the spaces. With that done, I colored the patterns with bright alcohol markers. Then I traced the areas again with the black liner.
Half way through the process, I realized that the stencil I had in mind
didn't work the way I wanted it, so I changed the plan and used a flower
instead, which is more intricate that I would have wanted for this. The black acrylic paint I sponged all over it seeped underneath quite a bit, probably would have been better with a more solid image (or more care).
The edges of the black paint I faded out a little with a baby wipe. After the paint had dried, I added sketchy white doodling, a simple white sentiment banner and adhered it all to a white card base.
Admitedly, I am disappointed that he image didn't turn out as crisp, but as Dyan says: it can be messy, you needn't be neat!
I hope you'll like it, though it's so entirely different from what I usually do. Have a nice day
