Fall Flowers Series 2018 #2: No-Line Copic Fall Flowers

 

Fall Flowers Series 2018

I love creating a little series of videos for you sometimes….kind of like a mini public “class”! I had a bunch of flower stamps in my growing stash that I haven’t shown yet, so they’ll be collected together this week into a series. Enjoy!

#1: No-Line Copic Fall Flowers

This set is called “Friendly Bunch” – I think it’s actually cherry blossoms! But as artists we can color things any way we want, right? I turned these into a pretty little bunch of orange flowers, and made it a no-line piece as well – meaning I stamped the image with a superlight ink (it’s a near-dead tan pad that I keep around just for this purpose!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The colors for this card…

Since I had stamped my secondary sentiment off-center, and was too lazy to restamp it, I just added a little twine feature to one side so it looked like it was on purpose. Shhhh don’t tell on me!

I really loved how this one came out….so fresh and pretty! The card front is trimmed down to allow 3 sides to have a white border, and it’s popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Every year I make a couple Halloween cards; I’m not a big fan of the holiday but the scenes can be lots of fun! I loved these critters from MFT….so I’m going to show you how to make a fairly simple scene. (More fall and halloween scenes can be learned in the Autumn Scenes Mini Class HERE). Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The color palette for a card like this is really simple…

And what a cute result!

I recently binged on playing with my refill inks on Yupo….and while I played, I realized – a portion of my playtime backgrounds looked weirdly enough like coral! And with my recent Underwater Scenes obsession….it was a matter of time before I painted one this way! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Today’s card is an image I wanted to color as soon as I saw it! I did have a big old OOPS midway through the whole things, so stay tuned for that…but I think I fixed it at the end and it’s even better than it was if the first idea had worked! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here’s a close view of the recovery of the “oops” – the center has dimensional adhesive to pop it up, and the sides are glued down to the cardstock, making it look nicely curved!

I debated whether to use different colors of cardstock, but thought white would really make the image sing. Well, if a guy like this sings. I’m not really sure I wanna hear what that sounds like! ha!

Leading ladies – in hallways! (Plus #WWCM2018 winners!)

Leading ladies – in hallways! (Plus #WWCM2018 winners!)

 

Leading ladies – in hallways!

Two brand new Leading Ladies from Ellen Hutson are out today!  And as I often do…I’m giving you some ideas for simple backgrounds to give them a “setting.” They’re both indoor ladies so I thought hallways would work – you can let me know if they do! They use the perspective lessons from Drawing 101, so if you’ve taken that class, you’ll be right on board. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Medical Lady has a bunch of great sentiments that go beyond sending cards just to doctors and nurses or for get well. 

Same with Teacher Lady – I don’t have kids with teachers to send cards to, but this sentiment is perfect for a friend card!

Latest Bible Journaling video

For those who might not know about it, I have a channel just for my Bible journaling with a new Sunday video each week! This one is a compilation of my World Watercolor Month videos! Be sure to join the Facebook group, it’s busting at the seams with new folks!

WWCM winners!!

I was so proud to see so many of you out there following along with #wwcm2018 – and others using the official #worldwatercolormonth prompts, and yet others just having a blast watercoloring anything at all! Woohoo! Here are the randomly selected winners out of nearly 200 entries – I snagged their paintings to post so you can get just a tiny taste of all the work created! Ladies you can either purchase the class you wish if you want it instantly and email me to refund it, or email me and let me know which you’d like, and I’ll add it to your account. Congratulations!

These lil stamps are SO CUTE! I made the dog and cat look like my babies – pull out a picture of yours and have fun matching their little faces! In the video I show you some tips for making fur work, making the colors natural, and creating that simple brown table in a flash. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The kitties came out looking *just* like my kitties, but younger….

Giallo is a fair representation of a dog with eyeliner (LOL)….Vienna looks pretty spot-on though!
