Bespoke Notebook Commission

Spent today setting up my graphics tablet and having a doodle AKA Tinkering with the Tablet …for testing purposes (see earlier post) and then doing a one-off bespoke notebook.

White and blue acrylic with black embossing bespoke Supernatural notebook

Tried embossing a few days ago on a bookworm notebook and didn’t like the result, maybe the ink pen I was using as it was drying to quickly on the absorbent paper, changed the ink and I’m happy with how this 1 turned out.

Tomorrow’s plan is a quick sculpt AND progress on a teddy miniature oil painting… planning on reworking the Christmas 1 that’s currently at ‘the ugly phase’. But none of that is going to happen unless I go to sleep now!
