It is my practice to print out all the month's Sketches ahead of time, and place them under my clear desk blotter, where I can be inspired by them. I saw lots of blooms here in Leigh's Sketch, don't you?
I have a favorite bloom set from SSS called Artful Flowers, and recently watched the fabulous Nichol Spohr water color said blooms on YouTube - you can watch it, too, right here. I'm struggling to learn the secret to Zig Clean Brush markers. My friends, Chriss and Bobby, swear by Bristol paper - and it did help with the movement of ink - thanks ladies!
Here is my attempt at Nichol's technique, using a few different Zig colors, and an aqua painter:
I've added a few freckles of Microliner black to tie together the black sentiment strip.
My go-to W&W panel, and PPP sequins, too =]
I'm thinking I have a LONG way to go, but thank you Nichol for removing the fear factor for me!
How about following me over to see what my Sketchy-Sisters have to share at the CTS blog this week?
Thanks for stopping by... I so appreciate your kindness!
