GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! This post will be short and sweet. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I still have much to do to get ready. I’ve done very little so far to get ready so today will be a scramble to get everything in order. And what have I been doing instead? Well, I decided that I wanted some time to myself to color. So that’s what I did!
Today’s project features:
- Wintery Day by Stampendous
- Copic coloring (see marker list below)
- Additional basic supplies linked in thumbnails below.
I have a soft spot for cute stamps and frankly I bought this stamp because I couldn’t resist this snowman. Coloring white objects is a bit tricky because as you’ve probably noticed – there’s no white Copic marker. So we color the shadows, contours and reflections. I tend to color snowmen in shades of blue and blue/green and I throw in a bit of blue violet in the darkest shadows to create a bit of depth. It takes a bit of restraint though because you don’t end up with a blue snowman!
That’s all for me today. It’s time to tackle my to do list. But let me take a moment to say how grateful I am to each and every one of you for joining me and supporting me through this artistic journey. I am beyond thankful to have you all in my life. Happy Thanksgiving!
Until next time ….
