I’ve been busy creating a cover art submission for Bespoke Magazine!
The Spring Edition theme is “Adornment and Embellishment” and I immediately had a few ideas. It was really invigorating having a deadline and a theme already set for me.
After a few reference photos were saved from Google to my Evernote journal I got to work quickly.
I love peony flowers and love lace so I combined them together! I drew on some sequins but also decided to glue on real ones in the end too.
Overall I am really happy with the result; the flowers took way longer than I expected and I did find it stressful trying to find time after work to complete it. In the end it took about 2 weeks or around an hour per day to complete.
It definitely kick started my creativity ! I hope it gets on the cover and I hope I can get some out to be available as prints soon 🙂
