Easy Copic Blending with analagous colors – Doodle Buds

In today’s video on Easy Copic blending, you’ll be treated to a little visit to my sister’s garden! I had the video shot and in my computer, so one morning when I got up extra-early, I sat in the garden hammock swing and recorded the voiceover. I wanted to share the birds singing – you can hear them (as well as a few trucks!) in the background!

Doodle Buds – Blending with Analagous Colors

Easy blending is possible – or maybe this should be called “easier” blending. Because choosing colors next to each other on the color wheel (analagous colors) really do work better together. The color wheel shown in the video fits nicely into your craft bag – you can get the instructions to make one in this Spin the Color Wheel class. Recent addition to the class: a cut file that a student made to help make the process easier! If you purchased the class earlier, you’re free to go back and snag that file.

I’m doing this with Copics, but the same principle applies no matter what coloring medium you use. And with the Wplus9 Doodle Buds, any medium can make these pretty flowers look beautiful! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube:

Did you enjoy the birds? I loved sitting in the garden in the early mornings before it got hot, and before the bugs decided I would make a great breakfast! ha! I’ve always been told they eat me alive because I’m so “sweet” – whatever the case, I seem to be quite the treat for them!

  8. Fabulous! I love these doodle buds image and enjoyed your voice over outdoors! Especially loved the bees! buzzz!

  9. I don’t think I have ever seen your color wheel “in action”. Love the coloring in this card so I bought your color wheel and colored it this morning. I had to substitute a few shades here and there when I did not have the color you suggested. But, when I got to green I did not have any of the G40-43-46 Copics so I went to my handy-dandy Hex chart and found good substitutes (I think) using G20, G24 and G17. You are the absolute very best Copic expert teacher, ever with the greatest tools in the world that helps even a color challenged person like me! Thank you again!

    1. Great idea to use the Hex chart to find substitutes! 🙂
