well after a bit of a break (in Hawaii no less) its back to catching up with my design team challenges. I enjoyed the change of pace but it was nice to come home and get inky again :) I've also been delving into SU! My Digital Studio - what a learning curve! But I really love the possibilities it offers. May'be I'll even get to put together a photo book on the holiday!
Anyway onto this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. This week we want you to add a sketch.This how mine worked out.
May'be the warm weather in Hawaii inspired the springy feel of todays offering! In a bit of a doh momment I only realised as I was overlaying the trimmed out elements that of course they wouldn't overlay perfectly as I'd cut the bottom coloured panel up and spaced it out as a grid. To minimise this I had to cut the two larger sprays into much smaller pieces. I also wanted to leave some of the grid visible so you can see designs origin from the sketch. I used the ink pad lids and my aquapainter for all the colouring.
I wanted something special for my Mum's birthday and I think this fits the bill. Even if outside the window we have a carpet of colourful autumn leaves on the ground!
