My yoga instructor says you can't have balance if you don't breathe. I don't stop to think about breathing much, but I do hold my breathe when I concentrate. I am trying to learn to relax and just breathe, nothing else. I really like how my silhouette came out - I drew her with a gel pen and then colored with a copic .3 fine point. I kind of like the little scratchies of white through the leotard. Looks kind of like a woodcut to me.
Not sure what I will do with this drawing, but it was very relaxing to do.
This card needed to be all copics, in brown and pink. I colored the image with RV 23 and E 35 then used a blender pen to remove color for the spots on his back.
The splash dot of the flower print is by tapping both markers on white cardstock repeatedly.
The wood grain is mostly E35 with a few stripes of RV 23 and some very fine stripes of E 37. Nails on the plank were made with E47. Edges were rubbed with a stamping spot in dark brown after cuttlebugging the embossing patterns.
The sketch is roughly based on a sketch by scrapmommy at this website ... I love her work and think I will learn a lot from seeing her stuff.
And I tried the faux pressed flower technique again - I am really liking the way it looks to emboss a card with the flowers already attached and have them become part of the background.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
