Today I thought... I would try my hand at colouring images.
Today I thought... I will leave that up to the ones who know what they are doing, LOL.
Like I mentioned yesterday I received some images from Marlene to practice with.
Now on my defence (and I need one) I don't have Copics or Stamp'n Up markers or special pencils like Prismacolors.
I used Sharpie Markers. I don't have many colours of them, like I said I haven't coloured images before. What I did have was 3 shades of green though. Doesn't that frog look worried "Help me I'm falling", teehee.
I used a aqua pen and ink to do the shading around the image. I think I should have just left them as they were. But I needed some way to hide my imperfections (I coloured outside the line, oops). Then I got my cheater glasses. I stamped the branches on the lady buy. This looks like crap, I shouldn't have stamped it. But it looked better in my head.
A few thing I learned about colouring in images:
1. You need more colours to help you shade.
2. It shows your age, as I needed to get out my cheater glasses to see better. Boy I hate that.
3.You need good light, again that could be the age thing.
I can see why everyone enjoys this so much. It feels like you go back to a simpler time when we coloured in our colouring books. I can see this being relaxing as well. When you get good at it that is.
Today was spent, pretty much doing nothing, LOL.
I replied to all the wonderful women who left a comment on my video on here and on YouTube for my scrap/craft room. Thank you so much for commenting. I really do appreciate and love when you do. Every comment puts a smile on my face.
Hope your Wednesday was a creative one.
