I don't seem to be getting much crafting done at the minute but an unexpectedly free Saturday (thanks to Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters) meant I could get my Craft Barn June calendar challenge done. This month the theme is lavender and dragonflies.
I was messing around and experimenting with Brusho and my new Spectrum Noir aquamarkers and not thinking about making anything in particular so there's only the final photo.
I started by sketching a dragonfly and used masking fluid to protect some white areas. I watercoloured with Gelatos and Spectrum Noir aquamarkers then masked over the whole dragonfly and used Brusho sprinkled over a stencil, blotting on the dragonfly card for the background. A little bit of touch up with a Promarker and a swipe of shaded lilac around the edges finished it off.
Thank you for stopping by.
