ello everybody! Finally some warm weather! This past week was gorgeous! Oh, what a delight! For once I could pull the trash can wearing my Havaianas (stunt pulled by a professional do not repeat at home LOL)! Yippe..I cannot help but be inspired by the blue skies. As I mentioned so many times…I absolutely love each and every season’s light…and spring never fail me to show some sweet colors.With all the colors around one color really pops! WHITE! Here you can see I project I made for the CMC Copic Challenge, a challenge group over Color me Creative Classroom owned my lovely friend Suzanne J. Dean. Anyone can join the fun!
BTW Suzanne and spent sometime together and It was FUN FUN FUN! Gosh I loved each and every second…I have not had this much girlfriend time in a looooong time…As you all know Suzanne and I are always awake in the wee hours finishing up our work load that seems that never end!!! We live in copic fumes for real! Burning the 3 am oil (we always past the mightnight one lol). I also had a lovely time meeting my buddy DT Melanie (from CMC and TTCDR) and her dear hubby Charlie. Charlie was kind enough to drop Melanie so she could go to MI with Suzanne for her Copic Class!!! Talking about classes… if you are in or nearby NORTH & SOUTH CAROLINA…Classes are OPEN for pre registration at CMC on the Road. Don’t lose your place in this awesome class! You can ask anyone who took Suzanne’s classes…It is one the best investment you will make to get full use of your copics! Kid you NOT! It is a a fun day with gals that just “get it” what coloring is all about! I cannot wait to do it again!!!
My latest project is all about white! We were challenged over CMC Challenge group to make a project coloring in white! You say: “What? Coloring in white?”. Yeap…you can color to make a white effect making you image to pop! Sounds scary? NO WAY! White is one of the easiest coloring techniques when using your marker. Here you can see Gilli Lady, one of the Gilli of my newest collection, all dressed in white! Check out the lace effect you can create in the dress using copic multiliners!
I purposely made a card without a sentiment to show you how versatile a Gilli image can be! This all white card can be easily be sent to a young lady that are getting ready for her debut celebrating her 15 Year Birthday (“Quinceañera”. The equivalent in Latin American Countries). No Teenager's in your circle? How about that special Bride? Seems like May is the Bride’s month…so here is a cute idea for you to get ahold! The soft shades in the card plus all the fence embossing create a elegant vibe perfect for such a special occasion….and I am sure she will remember what gift you sent out ; ).
Ready to tackle one more technique and keep in improving your coloring skills with us? Come on over! We will all learn together it is soooo much fun! Now grab your colors and make it WHITE!
See you all soon…I got a ton of projects to share with you!!
Don’t forget to drop by House of Gilli Challenge blog…where you can win a Gilli Goodie bag. The house is being re arranged and lots of good and improved things are to pop! Keep in touch!
