December calendar art journal page

I managed to complete my December calendar art journal page just in time yay! It has been a challenge to work on a page of this size and dimension, being long and thin, but that has made it really interesting and I will be continuing using the same calendar in 2016.
This month I decided to create a stag in the form of a silhouette and used many layers of paint to create the effect, The highlights were created using Sakura soufflé gel pens, which are lovely.
There is a fast forward process video below the picture.
(I wrote this post using the speech recognition software on my iPad, it’s fantastic and really quick!)

New painting – Wild and Free

I recently finished a painting that was inspired by a Life Book 2015 prompt. I’ve never painted a horse before but have wanted to for ages, as I spent a lot of my childhood at the local riding stables :).
It took a long time to make but I’m glad I persevered.

Tutorial Video – Paper cut wreath using the Silhouette Cameo

Welcome to my tutorial where I show you how to make a stunning paper cut wreath using the Silhouette Cameo, if you don’t have a cameo then fear not, you can also cut it by hand or use any other cutting machine.
We will start by drawing the leaves and berries, photographing them using a mobile phone or tablet. We will then adjust the photo and trace them before cutting and assembling them out of paper.
Here are some photos of the finished wreath and creation process, the tutorial video can be found below these.
