Hello, my crafty & creative friends!
Today, I'm sharing a peek at a card I made for Taylored Expressions. It's my turn on the blog; so you'll find full details & lots of photos by clicking HERE.
Whenever I do woodgrain, I always get comments like "How do you do that?" "It's so realistic." Well, first, let me tell you that it is truly NOT hard to do. Second, wouldn't it be great if there were a guide you could follow? Funny you should ask...because there IS! :)
In addition to their many other coloring guides, Copic has come out with the perfect guide for coloring all the things. Check it out:
So, you've never even held a Copic marker in your hand? Great! This book, written & illustrated by the amazing Marianne Walker, will teach you just what you need to know to get started.
Oh, but wait... You're an experienced Copic color artist? Great! Of the many great techniques taught in this book, you are sure to learn something new.
Each tutorial carefully guides you through all the steps necessary to color many images. Projects start simple and progress through more complex techniques.
Oh, and did I mention? It INCLUDES beautiful line art for each tutorial to photocopy and color along! Now, that's a deal that can't be beat.
AND...YES! Woodgrain is one of the many techniques taught in the book...step by step, complete with full color photos and written instruction for each step. You'll be a woodgrain expert in no time!
Now, hop on over to the Taylored Expressions Blog for all the details on my card. THEN, hop on over to the Copic Store to get your copy of Intro to Coloring With Copic Markers.
Have a very happy and COLORFUL day, friends!
