one girl’s perspective on life, neopaganism, veganism, politics, books, films, and… stuff.

Welcome to today’s installment of the Book of Shadows sampler, which looks at the steps taken in creating a full-page knotwork design. In this instance, the main design is a bird-motif knotwork panel (design taken from Complete Celtic Designs) with decorated corners.

1. Pencilling the main design;

2. Pencilling the corner decorations, and inking the main design;

3. Inking, intermediary and final;

4. Colouring with inks;

5. Highlighting using metallic pens;

And with that, we have a beautifully decorated full page design!
