Hello.. taking things slowly

Hello, I hope you are all well and looking forward to the festive season. I’ve been taking things a bit slowly over the past couple of weeks, mainly because I’ve been catching up on sleep! I had secondary acoustic glazing installed and for the first time in over a year I have not been woken up in the early hours of the morning by aircraft.. whoo hoo. My natural sleep cycle starts at 2-3am so being woken up every morning at 6am was not good!!
So I celebrated by sleeping.. lots.. :)
Last week I went to my first ever life drawing class in Covent Garden, it was a bit nerve wracking but everyone was very friendly and it was great to see lots of different styles of drawing and learn from more experienced artists.
Here is my attempt..

I got some new art supplies, including some amazing FW ink in pearlescent colours.
Whilst creating I often have Twitch Creative open on my ipad and one of the artists I follow called ‘Niffiner’ told me that FW actually stands for ‘F*****g Wonderful’ as the people at Daler Rowney were so impressed with their creation :)
Here are some backgrounds I created using the FW ink, and yes it is F’ing Wonderful!

I will be creating a new paper cutting template this week, one with a festive theme, I’ll also create a tutorial so you can make your own version from scratch.. :)
That’s it for now!
