I did it! I coloured something every day for 30 days. I did fail in one respect though… I had intended to try to reduce the size of my printed digis and unused stamps piles and well… cough… that didn’t quite work out as planned 🙄
Still going! Some more Copic colouring, some heat embossing techniques and a shiny experiment on vellum.
Inspired by Seven Hills Craft’s September challenge, I thought I would have a go at spotlighting not only the colour but also the embossed outlines. Technically, this turned out pretty much how I hoped it would. If only I had remembered to keep my hand out of the still-damp marker, which meant I had to adjust my colour choices. I would have started over, but I’d already done that once because I forgot to use the powder tool before heat embossing. Not one of my better days…
Another five days colouring and another two stamps sets used, along with a digi stamp that I’ve had for ages.
I had decided to be a bit more organised this month and not leave the Gerda Steiner progressive challenge until the last few days, so, with the Autumn Scenes mini Copic class still in mind, I thought I would create a scene with the mouse sitting in front of a window with a hillside full of trees visible behind him.
Another five days of colouring. As well as using my Copics again — and even doing another lesson in the Autumn Scenes mini course — I also did my first bit of coloured pencil work in a long time and even got out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
This was the result of two things meeting: my desire to try something different to kickstart my mojo which was in a dire slump after Christmas and my need for a birthday present for my brother’s other half.
She likes jewellery, I’d never made jewellery before. Perfect match 🙂
