Hello and WELCOME!
It’s Friday!  Yea!   I hope everyone has a great weekend planned!

Today I am doing a video featuring light source, shadows  and shading.   This is a special request from my friend Kristine!
I have used the light source guides before but I wanted to explain how I use the linear guide in a little more detail.
I will share some of the other guides later!
But for now – let’s get started with  Shadows & Shading with the linear guide !
Here’s to you, Kristine!   😀

Hi everyone, it’s Marlena today sharing with you a fun project that I found on one of my many trips to Pinterest.  Well, actually, let me be honest, I found it through Facebook when one of my Facebook friends pinned it to Pinterest.  As soon as I saw it I hopped on over and had to pin the project myself, especially since it had a tutorial and all!  As soon as it was pinned I had to whip one right up and, well, here I am sharing my project with all of you.

For an image on today’s project I used the Whimsy Stamps, Elisabeth Bell image, Sweet and Sassy.

EB, Sweet and Sassy


I colored my image with copic markers.  the colors I used were Pants: B37, B18, B16, B12, B00, Shirt: Y38, Y35, Y32, YR30, Hat E29, E25, E23, E31 and Skin: E13, E11, E01, E000, E0000.  The original project had a large sized post it note pad in the box in the front.  Since I didn’t have any post it pads that size I made a notepad myself and covered it to go with the rest of the easel card.

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!
