Ink Sketched Fairy

Day 346 – Ink Sketched Fairy

Drawn freehand using a black fineliner straight onto some plain paper. I did not draw a pencil outline, hence the less-than-perfect proportions.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a close-up fairy so wanted to focus on her face for a change.

Dispersed Ink Fairy

Day 295 – Dispersed Ink Fairy

This is a bit experimental!

I drew today’s fairy in pencil on a piece of paper before using some felt tip pens on a plastic surface; spraying the ink with water and rubbing the wet inked plastic surface onto the pencil drawing. I drew over the pencil drawing in fineliner.

I quite like the effect of the ink dispersed on the page.

Metallic Fingerprint Fairy

Day 184 – Metallic Fingerprint Fairy

I started by drawing the outline of a fairy on some paper, cut it out using a craft knife and placed it on another piece of paper.

I then proceeded to use two fingers and my gold and silver ink pads to fill the whole area with fingerprints before removing the stencil to reveal the silhouette.

White Embossed Fairy

Day 182 – White Embossed Fairy

I was very excited to open my delivery of new embossing powders, inks and pens that I couldn’t resist creating today’s fairy using them.

I drew the outline in pencil (on a mini tan coloured notebook) before going over the drawing (a section at a time so the ink didn’t dry out) and used my opaque white embossing powder before heating to seal it.

Vivaldi Fairy

Day 169 – Vivaldi Fairy

I had bought this Vivaldi paper a while ago with the intention of putting my RADA certificate on top, but it is a shade too dark, so I have kept it waiting for the right craft to come along.

I saw it on my desk and couldn’t resist using it for today’s fairy. I drew this using my black fountain pen and decided to colour it in using the same medium. This was not the best idea as the ink bled on the paper. Her nose was quite dainty initially…
