Well, Hello all! I can't believe how long it's been. Hope everyone is doing really well. Life has been so crazy for such a long time that it's amazing to me how fast everything is going. Anyway... I finally had a little bit of time to actually take some pictures of some projects, so I thought I would share them here on the old blog.
So... What has changed... Lots of things. I have been wanting to get into the alcohol marker thing for a REALLY long time. Well, I finally did. I picked up the collection of Spectrum Noir Markers and started watching all of my friend Melissa's tutorials on coloring. She uses Copic markers, but I just love her videos and tutorials over at melissamade2.blogspot.com. So... This is actually my first every coloring project with my new markers. Hope you like it.
I purchased the adorable bear digi from Meljen. I used the Silhouette Cameo for the shape of the label and the used the print and cut feature to place the bear right were it needed to be. I am loving the whole print and cut thing. I actually printed two and then cut out the little bouquet of flowers with precision scissors so that I could pop them up a bit. I just played with the colors in the papers.
I made this into a stand up card that is 6x6. I was going to try a little smaller, but the digi was so small that I needed some more space to color. Hee! Hee! First time and all. I added a couple of gems around the frame and some baker's twine. I also ran the background mats through the sewing machine to add a little more texture.
In this last picture, you can see the popped up flowers in the bouquet. I was so excited for my first marker experience and was thrilled with the way it turned out. I know that I am completely addicted and will have lot of fun with this collection. I am sure there are copic users that will get a good laugh at this first attempt, but I didn't think it turned out to bad. Actually, I was pretty stinkin' proud. Hee! Hee!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great one!
