Y'know just as I was typing this post I realised just how fried my brain is - I've been using the prompts to work out what day of 'a post a day in June' we are at, why didn't I just look at the date each day?? Oh dear, early senility calling me thinks.
Anyhow, today's prompt - and I've been a good girl and managed to do the double!!
Day 13: What do you want to learn to do? Can be crafty or non-crafty OR Craft something that has stripes
What do I want to learn to do? How deep and meaningful do you want to get? Be braver, be more ambitious, be happier?
How about, seeing as how we've had a lot of angst and problems this week - I just go for a simpler learning ambition.
To colour better! I've seen lots of on-line courses for improving colouring with Copics (look at people's side bars - a lot show some sort of Copic certificate) but I've not seen an on-line course yet for Promarkers. Why are there no courses that I can find for Pros, am I not looking hard enough, or do they not exist? Oh and I'm sure someone will say look for one locally - I live near Gods waiting room, no-one round here colours - they all do flowery decoupage, honestly, they do, honestly!
So in lieu of a proper course, I do a lot of YouTube looking and staring at other people's colouring, trying to work out how they did that, what colour they used, and how on earth they get their light source shading to work!!!
I would also like to learn how to take a better picture, I got a digital SLR bridge camera a few years ago, with the intentions of taking marvellous pictures - it pretty much only comes out now to take pics of my cards. Sad, very sad!
Anyhow there you go - my learning ambitions.
Now for some card-candy:
The Arty Farty:
The Close Up:
Some Odd Girl - Tiny Princess Tia
coloured with my Promarkers (apart from the pink - that's Copics)
Wot no - again! I must be feeling ill!
My Mind's Eye: miss caroline - all dolled up
DCWV - The Garden Party
Ribbon and sentiment from my stuff
Distress Inks - edges of papers
Glamour Dust - crown
Do y'know I didn't like this one when I first made it, but I think it's a grower. I still think my cutting out skills and colouring of pleats need a lot of work, but I'm starting to like the colour combo. And I certainly prefer it to the last SOG card I made, I used the same sketch that time - but something went seriously wrong that time!!
See y'all tomorrow,
A challenge, or two:
Some Odd Girl: June Sketch Challenge - Was so pleased to be a winner last month, thank you!
