I've spent the last couple hours cleaning up the mixed media mess in my kitchen. Man can I make a mess! Last night I finished Emily's AJ Monday page....I went VERY clean and simple this week because I think I exhausted myself painting the front and back covers of my coptic journal. If you are wondering what that is, it is a hand stitched journal and mine is assembled with Arches watercolor paper. It is the journal I will be using for my Suzi Blu A Lovely dream art journal class. She is ONE amazing artist.
Moving on....I do have a card today and it's one I created for our display at Scrapfest. Meet POSH has a present. A while back I asked if there was anything from the latest release you would like me to colour and I haven't forgotten about you, I just don't have those images yet and when I do get them, they will be the first I go to.
In the meantime, Margo wanted the shopping uptown girls in GREEN and since I don't have the 'girls' yet, I thought I'd tackle Posh in greens. Of course EVERYTHING couldn't be green so I threw in some pink.
When I want soft greens like this, I tend to use the lightest copics and do the rest of the shading and highlighting with pencil. And I couldn't do this all up in green without actually telling you what I used so here goes:
E000, 00, 11 (face)
G20, 40, 12 (dress)
G000, 00, BG11, G21 (green bags)
R00, RV11, R21, 22 (pink bags, shaded with E31)
E11, 13, 25, 27 (hair)
YG11, 21, 25, 67, G34 (bows and shoes)
for the pencils:
To shade the dress, I used some Kelp green and highlighted with white
I added some peacock green to the polkadot bag
I shaded around the image with pale sage first, then added some kelly green
Hope you like her! Now I'm ready to colour something up for our POP IT UP Friday challenge. hmmmmmmm, what to do, what to do.
