Good Morning, Yesterday I shared the design layer for this new piece and today I am sharing my illustration layer. I started with a small snip which was accidentally clipped from another piece I was working on. The small curves intrigued me so I used them to make a larger image.

I have the design as the bottom layer, then the b&w picture and now I start removing spaces to show the design underneath. I use the “magic wand” tool in Photoshop to select the areas of white that I want to remove. This leaves the black as a border and whatever is beneath what I have removed will show through. There is […]
