This image from Beautifully Braided worked perfectly for my Online Card Class homework assignment. The class - led by Kathy Racoosin - is about coloring techniques with different types of markers and colored pencils. Choosing Copic markers can be intimidating but Kathy shared this fun tip. She suggested the plucking technique - pick three different colored markers - a dark, a medium and a light and don't worry about the numbers. So I bravely grabbed a dark brown, a medium orange and a light yellow by looking only at the color and not the numbers. That is the fastest I have ever chosen colors and it all worked on my ginkgo leaves today! So thanks to Kathy for starting us out with simple, fun technique!
So many possibilities with Jacquie's wide open sketch this week! Have fun with it at Freshly Made Sketches!
