With so much going on, my crafty time has been limited. It is sad, but true. The past few days, I have been unbelievably on edge and decided I MUST CRAFT or I will blow a gasket! ha ha ha...
A few weeks ago, my crafty friend...was talking about how she had the Tim Holtz distress markers, but really wasn't happy with them. They didn't quite meet her needs, expectations etc... So as we discussed, I mentioned that those are one type of marker that I really want, but have been hesitant to purchase. My sweet and awesome and amazing crafty friend gave me hers. SERIOUSLY? When I received the box, I cried like a big baby. My hubby kept saying..."I should have video taped this"... I will never ever in a million years forget her kindness and generousity! Thank you friend!
Since I had never played with them before I started really simple and with basic cardstock. I googled some images and started using my distress markers.
This is the first image I colored. I thought it would be easy. Ha! not hardly. There is quite a learning curve.
This little guy is my 2nd attempt. He turned out better. I'm still learning to do the shading, but like it over allThis is one of my favorites from my practice session. I love the image to start out! I think I did pretty good with the coloring and shading. I'm still working on the shadow effect...
My last one is a Unity stamp company stamp set by Donna Downey. I stamped on water paper for this round.
I love it!!!....I love how it turned out. I love how I could blend more easily and could use multiple layers of color.
That is it for today. Does anyone have any tips or words of wisdom on using the Tim Holtz distress markers?
Have a blessed day!
