Hello my blurfing friends (that's blog surfing, hee hee)!! How are you all this sunny Tuesday morning? I'm up and all about today--got ants in my pants and lots to get done, LOL! Tonight I will be sending out all the NEW Sept/Oct pdf subscriptions for Through The Craftroom Door publication---yay! And if you get the paper copy they were sent out today so you'll have them in your hands very soon! I will also be having a Live Chat at my CMC Classroom tonight at 8:30 pm EST and you all are welcome to stop by--it's always a lot of fun, make new friends and talk Copics & Crafts!
And now I have to have a small rant--LOL! You're free to skip this part but it always makes me better to type my frustrations out now & again :) I took the kids school shopping this weekend as you know and my lovely daughter really likes Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister stores. I think she does this to torture me in a way that is not at first apparent to myself, lol! Those stores STINKKKK--and the music is too LOUD!! Am I just an old fart? Why do they insist on spraying those disgusting, obnoxious colognes thru-out the store---do they NOT want the parents in the store? Cuz' HEY we're the ones paying for their overpriced clothes KWIM! As a paying parent that doesn't like migraines and EVERY SINGLE SENSE overloaded upon entering I need them to STOP!! Blech, makes me sickie poo everytime we enter and I know I embarrass my daughter (ummm big surprise, lol) by holding my nose & making gagging noises thru-out the store, but HEY I'm trying to prove my point to the OBVIOUSLY non-smelling & non-hearing folks that work there! Enuff said!! LOL--thanks for listening!
**Okay--I edited and uploaded 3 NEW Copic QuikBitz Videos on hair coloring! I have 2 more to come along with a separate copic coloring video in store for you later in the week. See below for links & videos and I hope you enjoy them! (they will also be linked on my Tutorials/Templates page above)**
-See yesterday's post for some great-smelling Blog Candy, hee hee!
-The CMC Copic Classes On the Road are still ongoing! I have a new location up for pre-registration in Ontario, Canada in November at the Stamplicity Store!! Visit the website at www.cmcroad.com for details!
Okay, so yeah sometimes I think I live under a rock, lol! I just discovered this fabulous site called "Tiddly Inks" by artist Christy Croll. I knew she drew some of the images for Stamping Bella but had NO idea she had her own fabulous shop with tons of cute digi stamps!! Well a few fell into my cart of course and I just love the little girl images--they are perfect for showing copic coloring techniques too! So this cutie is called "Whatcha' Doin'?" and I used her for one of my Copic QuikBitz Videos below on hair coloring!!
"Togetherness", lots of fun patterns in this pad! I inked the edges of my image again & used my SB's nestabilities to mat it. The ribbon and cs is by PTI--I also added a scroll from my fave Marianne Designs dies and then added some pretty flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (love this company for paper flowers, highly recommend them)! The bow was made with my Bow Easy tool and then I added another flower to the center and some pearls to finish it off. I love the happy & pretty color combo!
And yes, she's colored with Copics and then I added some stickles to her cute hair bow! (Copics Used: E25,E31,E50/ Y15,Y11,Y00/BG13,BG11,BG000/E11,E00,R20). Make sure to check out the videos below including one on how I colored her hair! Hope you enjoyed this post today!
**If you subscribe to have to access the videos directly from my blog!!** Also I apologize if the volume is not loud enough for you--I am speaking about as loud as I can for ya, so forgive me for not being a super loud gal :)!! Make sure to turn up BOTH your volume on your computer AND the volume control that YouTube gives you on the video---that should crank it pretty loudly!!
