Hello Dare2B Artzy friends and fans. Michelle Houghton here with a little D2BA inspiration to start your day. I am coloring on the Papa Bear Stamp Set and I discovered as I pulled out my Copics and started that I am coloring a little different these days.
Artists go through phases in their lives like most of us we have favorites that come and go they have techniques that come and go or colors or mediums. I think I am in a “phase” of little to no blending in my Copic coloring. I find myself loving the artistic brush strokes of the markers, the texture that results and the quick and easy simplicity of the coloring.
This might have to do with the “phase” of my life right now! Most of you may be aware at this point that I have moved for the summer and my craft room is split in two. Half sits in boxes in an apartment my oldest daughter and I will return to in the fall in Des Moines. While the other half is exploding out of boxes onto the floor and one table top in my new office in Alaska! So please forgive me this summer as the cards will be SIMPLE. I am a simple card maker on the best of days but now that I am missing several of my larger tools and half of my stash (not sure which half yet) the card designs will be basic layering with a few details here and there. Of course the Copics came so the coloring will be there ?.
Here is the current look of my crafty space:
I look at these photos and I am a little overwhelmed ha ha! BUT I did get a little coloring done for you today so let’s switch over to that! I started with the background this time, not my normal but wanted to save the bears for last.
Next the bears, I used earth tones here and changed from the papa bear to the cub:
All that is left is the small details Papa bear’s scarf and a butterfly. I chose my D2BA papers first and then matched these last pieces on the image to my papers.
I put it all together after coloring the area around the frame with the sky color, BG000. Simple but complete.
Thank you as always for stopping by today! Make sure to stop by the Dare 2B Artzy hope to check out the newest products and doings! And don’t forget to tune in to the challenge each month for your chance at a little Dare 2B Artzy prize.
