Over the last couple of days, my focus has been on designing mandalas. I also have been learning a little more about Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and how I can import images, cut them and have them as an opaque image that ‘floats’ on top of other layers or designs. The image above is an example of the work I’ve done.
My only issue with it is that I’ve used too thick a pen for the mandala. Now I know how to do this, I can always re-do the mandala part, or the dragonfly!
I also spent a fair part of yesterday doing some mixed media work. A friend of mine asked if I’d do something with her wedding speech for one of her family so it’d become a keepsake for them.
I’d been puzzling about how to do it, when inspiration struck with the colours I needed to use, and off I went! I’ll post a photo of it once the wedding is all done!
