Creating the fabric image.

It’s been a rally busy day today, class with 27 ladies and then socialising afterwards…. however I had time to finish a little drawing. The flower has turned into a tea cup. Originally I saved the first line drawing by saving it into my photos on the iPad Pro, that way I can add to…

The flower.

This is just an idea… I’m not 100% happy with it… but it has potential. I don’t have time to add more images it’s going to be a hectic week… but I would love to see some of you try the technique.
