I have been watching many videos and reading some blogs to learn what I can about blending and colouring with Copic markers.
I found this printable on Pinterest, the idea is to be able to match the copic colour to cardstock or pattern paper.
Flower printable – this printable is to demonstrate different colour combinations to can have when combing the colours you already have. Here, I have started to combine the colours I have and to see how many I can put together. I plan to fill up this sheet and possibly more.
The rocket tutorial was taught by Michelle Houghton. I found this to be easy to follow and gave me a good understanding of shading and blending.
This what I have found and worked on so far. Will continue to update when I have completed more.
Hope you enjoyed!
Currently I am working on an album for my new puppy, Rosie. This is taking a lot longer than I expected.
Isn’t it funny how we take tons of pictures for something new, well at least I do? I probably have made this project longer than it needs to be just because of the amount of pictures.
First let’s talk about the album I chose to use for this project. This album has been kicking around for a few years now and I really haven’t found a purpose for it up to this point. I think it will work great!
I have purchased Echo Park’s Bark collection to get me started and have coordinated with other stuff from my stash. Here are a few pictures of completed layouts.
Hope you enjoyed…
Thanks for looking 🙂
Who would have thought that I would be working on a cross stitch, I don’t usually do cross stitch because it takes so long. I tend to head toward smaller, quick projects.
I picked up this small notebook kit (included notebook, thread and needle) at Dollarama to work on the train going to Montreal a couple weeks ago. Although it is taking a while to complete, I am pick it up when I can. I will post it when it is done.
Yesterday I purchased a package of Gelly Roll Classic pens at Michael’s Arts and Crafts using a 40% coupon. Now I need to figure out what to do with them.
Here are a few things I was playing with, not sure I like to colour with them, doesn’t really leave a smooth, even finish.
What I have learned so far:
the pens are great for designs and colouring in small objects like the food dish, butterfly or hearts because they are small.
Not to fussy on the finished look of the dog coloured. Too many pens marks. So I did go over it again and it looks so much better. I would so like to add glaze to it. I really like the black and clear glaze pens. I purchased those last year and have used a little. The black glaze pen works great for paws. These stamps are from Your Next Stamp, Jessica’s Puppy.
Oops! I didn’t realize this pen was not clear when dried! Won’t do that again.
I still love all the markers and have learned some new things.
Hope you can appreciate this post and I look forward to showing my next creative adventure.
