I've used the types of card and inkpads I use most often in my crafting to see how they work together. I've also dragged a wet paintbrush across the images to see how the inks react with water on the different types of card (shown by the arrows at the top) and also ran a promarker blender pen across the images (the arrow at the bottom). I'll keep referring to these again and again as its unbelievable how the images differ. The stamp i've used is from the Fuchsia stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque, I love this stamp and as its very detailed I thought it would be ideal to test the ink pads.
Once we'd tested our ink pads we moved on to experimenting adding colour to stamped images using various mediums
In week 2 we looked at light and shade, I always struggle with this but the videos are fab-u-lous and really made it a lot easier to see where I'd been going wrong. Here's some of my week 2 work. I've found it really interesting to see how different types of pencils blend and create different effects. We've also looked at adding detail to a watercoloured image with pencils.
We're into week 3 now and we're looking at colouring skin and hair as well as water and reflections etc. I always used to love watching Glenda's demonstrations on C&C so its wonderful to be able to watch the videos on My Creative Classroom. I still love my promarkers but I'm gradually getting more confident with my pencils and I love the effects you can achieve with them. I've got a little behind with work being so busy but hopefully I'll get chance to practice this weeks techniques later
