Guest post over at MFT: Friends in the Forest

It’s the first Thursday, which means I’m back again at MFT with another coloring video…and below I’ve put some info about my palette, since questions come up about that pretty often.

My palette

A while back, Daniel Smith asked if I had 18 favorite colors – they like to put together dot cards for artists they work with. I was so honored! So here’s a little video created for how I set up my palette. Download the template HERE….my dot card can be purchased HERE if you’d like to sample my colors before making a big purchase. Full list of colors is below, as well as palette info.

Photo Lady in her Photo Studio – Watercolor Card

 

Photo Lady in her Photo Studio – Watercolor Card

I’m especially excited about Photo Lady because a good friend of mine is REALLY into photography. Not only is she gonna borrow the heck out of this stamp set (til I get her to go buy one, LOL) – but she’ll get lots of cards made with it! I watercolored her as if she’s in a studio like mine, even though mine’s for art, not photography….but I hope you enjoy the video! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Acetate Coffee Card – Honeybee Stamps

Stamps with big heavy outlines are easy to color – and sometimes they’re the most fun! Simplify shapes and shadows to make them graphic  – and let the sharp contrast shine! This sweet set from HoneyBee is going to be fun for coloring this winter….because anything with a donut it it gets my vote. LOL! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
