You might know from my Instagram feed that I’m a little obsessed with fall scenes right now – partly inspired by the Autumn Scenes class. I wasn’t planning on doing any more classes til Christmas cards start in September (tomorrow!), but my patrons encouraged me to help with a fall cards class – and now I can’t stop! Today’s video shows all halloween-scenes in Colored Pencil with Gamsol….and at the end, see this same design but with scenes from the class in Copic marker!

Mini Copic Class: Autumn Scenes
For those taking the Autumn Scenes class – try something fun like this with the lesson techniques! They’re tinier so you need to adjust the size of strokes etc, but….give it a try!
Belated Happy Frankenstein Day!
I didn’t find out til the afternoon, or I’d have swapped around a few posts – but it was Mary Shelly’s birthday. So I did a drawing of Frankenstein’s monster! (I am reminded that he is the monster – the DOCTOR is Frankenstein!)
Stay tuned tomorrow for a back to school sale on Copic classes!

Very cute cards! I love your Frankenstein monster.
I love this idea so much that I copied it today but ran into an issue: how do you do the pencil coloring, gamsol, die-cutting AND get rid of the eraser lines? I ended up with eraser lines in my scenes. (But it was lots of fun and the die-cutting was perfect!)
Oh phoo – you have to make them light enough that they don’t show up. Or color enough to cover them. When you use the die, it makes the lines “inside” the area that’ll actually get cut.
This really IS Fab-BOO-lous!
You’ve given me some great ideas. Haven’t used gamsol in quite some time, but will give it a go.
So awesome, I like the autumn sciences the most.
Just finished my Autumn Scenes class – so imagine my surprise when those scenes all popped on one of your examples! *Hey, I know how to do this!*, altho the simpler backgrounds look like just as much fun. Thanks!
