Well, really only two steps with this one. It took me so long to get into it, that I didn't want to take the time to scan every fifteen minutes or so. I had a difficult time with this piece of paper from the start. It just did not know what it wanted to be. All I know is that I wanted it to be something beautiful, soft, and elegant. At one point I had even set it aside to start with a fresh piece. It was only a matter of seconds and I had convinced my hands they needed to push on~ something would spring from this persnickety piece of coffee-stained Arches hot press paper in front of me.
I am so glad I stuck with it.
I came up with this pretty little sketch and got to work with some color.
