Almost done with my Pay it Forward gifts for 2013...well the official ones any way lol. Made this one last week (possibly 2 weeks ago), but forgot to post it !!!
It is for Susan Foulkes, I know she is a book addict, so the design is meant to feel like a mysterious photo of a beautiful lady...wonder what adventures she will have with Susan? :D
I made the background design using a technique shown by Daisy Yellow, but I can't find the vid link now so you'd have to go ask her :D...well worth a visit anyway :D
Next I added definition using black inktense pencil and slodges of white paint :D
White Posca paint marker(which I luuuuurve) was used to add faux stitching, which gives the cover a leathery feel :D
and I just couldn't resist painting this miniature portrait in the centre panel...
She looks like she was on a fabulous outing...
I know your more of a Red fan Susan, but this book just wanted to be with you :D
And I think I better make this my "Piece a Week", as I have gotten behind with linking to Rita :D
Enjoy :D XXX
