A very special Sophie - Skissedilla #180
I love the sketches and the amazing talent at Skissedilla. I couldn't wait to try this one, something about those diamonds really appealed to me. I made my diamond background by sticking down small paper squares and smearing gesso over it, a very cheap way to make a mask. I always wonder how people get such cool effects with their paint or gesso. Here I rolled a gessoed-up paint brush stick across the page, glad it turned out well.
I'm not usually a flowery person but I love these Prima cherry blossoms. The papers are from My Minds Eye "on the bright side", and the blue background is Basic Grey.
Thanks for looking!
