Class 1 introduced the basics about Copics and several beginner coloring techniques. As I worked through each lesson, I put the practice pieces in a notebook with the downloads provided for each class. I now have a great reference notebook to look back to later.
Here is my piece I did for the final homework that was to include as many as possible of the techniques and color combos from the classes. The colors used are listed by each image.
This little group is perfect me - a flower and vegetable gardener!
The stamps used are Garden Tilda, Seeding Tilda, Watercan Tilda and Strawberry Yummy Tilda.
I have the perfect background paper to turn these into an accordian fold card just as soon as I have time to think it out and put it on paper! I finished these up on June 25, 2011.
I went on to Class 2 the next day. The techniques taught were more advanced and used different color combos - some difficult to blend smoothly. Again I learned far more than I ever expected.
Here is my final project done using 12 of the 14 techniques taught.
The stamps used in this piece were Sea Background, Sign, Tilda and Edwin Dancing and Small Shell from Bon Voyage. The color combos used were all presented in the individual classes. The sky was lightly sponged with SU Bashful Blue. The sand/ground was sponged with SU Sahara Sand.
The sign and Tilda and Edwin are popped up on dimensionals. This piece was fun to put together and color. I have no idea at this time what I will do with it other than put it in my notebook. I finished these classes on July 23, 2011.
Maybe we can meet up with Tilda and Edwin at the beach. Don't forget your sunscreen!
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!
