But I am in Colorado and loving it! I am visiting my sister in Fort Collins and let me tell you...I do not want to go home! I said over one Facebook I think I may stay forever! Other than being ridiculously sick, we are having a great time! I have received a few emails as to where I am, so I thought I would pop in and say hi and publish this post that I wrote up a couple weeks ago and never posted! Thanks for your emails ladies!
So recently my friend Barb came over and I had the best Copic class ever! I was so lucky to have her come and stay with me so you know I had to get some Copic hints! She taught me how to do hair with that shiny highlight look! (Still working on perfecting that one but you can see my "first attempt" here!)
Oh and notice this too...NO ribbon, no buttons, no nothing. Cardstock, ink and Copics! This may be a first for me!
Now I can't lie....Barb colored the overalls for me! I wanted to see how and where she chose to put highlights in! I am convinced that part of coloring takes an artists eye and I don't know if I have that! I would have colored the overalls blue and darkened the areas around the creases! She gave this little one a tummy and tushy and some all around dimension!
I do have to say that the skin, airbrushing and grass were all me! I got an airbrush system last week and to tell you the truth I am scared of it! But I managed to use PTI Cloud Dies for masks and made the sky super simple! With 3 of Barb's green copics...yes she has TONS of colors...I made grass! I was kinda proud of the grass! :) And the skin...she gave me a tut on that several months ago so I am still working but the shading on her chin is kinda working out here!
Anyway, thanks Barb for coming to stay! Can't wait to see you again soon! Thanks everyone for stopping by!
