Project Description

f0946308

Your project will be to create an illustration, then use embellishment to enhance it.  You can illustrate in black and white or in color and use any subject matter you like.  It will be a challenge in choosing embellishment that follows the theme of your illustration so it doesn't work against it, whether it's a watercolor, outlined sketch, chalkboard art or something else.   I am so looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  : )

Here is the link to the Embellishment for Illustration Pinterest board I created to help you get inspired for your project.  Please feel free to contact me in the Community page of this class if you would like some feedback or help choosing a subject matter, or anything else.  I'm not kidding!  I'm here to help, and there is no such thing as a stupid question, so I look forward to hear from you.  : )
