I Love to Color

Happy Fall Greetings Everyone!

I am really excited to share that I will be heading to Copic Certification training this weekend.  STC continues to embrace unique fundraising options and this certification will not only allow me to add new technique workshops for survivors, but will enable me to offer workshops to the public through craft stores for fundraising options. To prepare, I focused this week on coloring media in general and wanted to share the results.  Going top left to right here are the combinations...
Top left - Right -
1. Regular color pencils blended with baby oil 2. Copic Alcohol Markers 3. Memento Dye Ink used with paint brush 4. Ranger Distress Dye Inks used with paint brush

Bottom left  - Right -
1. Water color paint  2. Water color pencils 3. Water soluble graphite pencils 4 Inktense pencils

So, what do you think? Please leave a comment about your favorite look! 

After practicing, I put together this set of cards using 1. the Water Color Pencil option and 2. the Inktense Pencil option (2 and 4 on the bottom).  This time, I white embossed the image (instead of just black ink) so the color would pop. 
These cards are now proudly displayed at the Berea Arts Council Gallery for fundraising purchase. Stop by, they are only $3.00 each.

As we say during our workshops, coloring is so therapeutic! Next time I post, I will be officially Copic Certified..yeah! Then I can add two certifications to our website and blog area... Spotted Canary Scrapbook Design and Copics.  Great fundraising and workshop ideas planned for the rest of 2012 and 2013.  Thanks for your continued support!
