Today we are remembering Lily Chilvers a truly beautiful artist and soul taken from us too soon.
To honour Lily we are sharing projects we have made in her memory using the wonderful, whimsical and wacky art she shared with us all.

My project is this colourful panel...

I created layers of detail on the background using paint, stencilling, printing, splattering, stamping and a little bit of washi tape...

As it is quite a thick panel, I could create my favourire black and white striped edging..

The amazing octopode figure was printed off, then covered in clear gesso. As I like to colour with wet media, the clear grsso gives the paper a nice protective layer! I used acrylic inks and watercolour pencils to add the colour.

The quote I used feels very apt today.

Lily was such a fabulous, talented artist. She will be missed throughout the whole of the crafting community.
