Hello Everyone! It's Kathy Racoosin here and I am super excited today... for two reasons ...
One because it's the first day of "The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge" AND because I am using an absolutely stunning illustration from Marcella!!
It's breathtaking!! It's beautiful and most importantly it's FUN to color!!
If you are saying what the heck is this coloring challenge thing lol you can read this post here. I also wanted to thank sweet and lovely Julie for listing the challenge in her Good Vibe 5 post here.
Some of the talented ladies on the Power Poppy team will be coloring this magnificent digital stamp today as well (full list at the bottom of the post) and I am telling you I can't wait to see what everyone does and I know it will inspire us! Woo Hooooo!
Today I have a video for you and I hope you will watch it because my coloring is with SHARPIE MARKERS and a few other odd markers that I found in my studio. I often hear that so many of you don't have "fancy markers" or can't afford alcohol markers so I wanted to give you a few tips to use some alternative markers that you might have.
If you like softer more abstract kinda art ... flip your coloring over for a completely different look.
If you don't have a lot of alcohol markers you can round out your palette with other markers. Don't be shy about switching things up. The majority of my coloring today is with lines and more lines.
Adding a few shadows with two copics and that's it the rest was Sharpie markers, a few Bic and some odds and ends.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I hope that you might consider playing along with us for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Don't forget you can jump in or out but, I try to encourage you to find 10 minutes a day for some "you" time. Have a great day!
