Well a very happy Saturday to you all! I'm pre-typing this because as you read this I'll be in Michigan teaching the first of many Copic Classes on the Road--check out www.cmcroad.com for more locations/dates! Here's to a happy day for everyone and I hope you're having a fabulous weekend so far! I'll be back home very, very early Monday morning as I'm leaving after my last class on Sunday (around 8 pm) to drive straight home. I'm sure I'll be missing my hubby and dogs and ummm okay my kids too by this point, lol! But I'm lucky to have some friends here that I'll get to connect with and have dinner with and chat (one is my Mag DT sistah Angie Hunt)! So it will be fun and I am looking forward to it!
-Last few days for the Color Me Creative Classroom "Fall Back 2 School" Special---take any 2 classes at CMC and get $10 back, take any one class and get $5 back! Special ends September 20th!
-Monday, the Magnolia-licious DT will have a fun "Brooms & Bats" Blog Hop for you--so make sure to stop by!!
Bildmalarna USA (Stamping Scrapping) is coming to an end soon and I have had so much fun using these cute stamps! They are so much darn fun to color I tell ya! This cutie is called "Mimosa Wonderful Day" and indeed she's having a great day it looks like. Like the Bildy stamps (that's what I call 'em, lol) well the NEW Holiday/Winter stamps are up HERE for pre-order and they are supah cute!!! I used this week's SCS Sketch #298 for my layout and all my papers are from that AWESOME Prima paper pad that I used the other day--the patterns and colors are just beautiful! Those pearl swirls are from Prima as well!
I love the watercolor effect---very soft and very serene I think!
This lil' girl was colored with Copics (RV14,RV11,RV10/BG11,BG10 and Colorless blender)--I kept all the colors very soft to match the papers. I used very little of my darker colors and used my Colorless Blender as a true "blending pen" to keep everything nice and soft--this is a tricky technique and you have to be light of hand to make it work w/o removing the color! I also added stickles to the aqua shirt and aqua stripes of her leggings and then diamond glaze on her shoes. Just a soft and peaceful kinda day she's having!
Hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you back here on Monday with a fun Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!
