SuperBella to the Rescue!
If only SuperBella could help me study for my African American Politics test today! Her powers, however, seem to lie in her ability to be simply ADORABLE! This image is so wonderful and StampingBella has the cutest sentiments to go along with her, including 'Have a Super Birthday'! I used this image, the coloring varies slightly, in an earlier post which you can see here!
Today's VIDEO TUTORIAL (!!!) showcases the One Marker, Two Layers technique. 'What is the One Marker, Two Layers Technique???' You may ask! Well, as a college student, I throughly believe in getting the most of your markers.
After playing with certaincopic markers, I have found that a second layer of the same color will produce it's shadow (amazing, I know lol). While it is commonplace to think that you must get three tones of the same color (i.e. R25, R27, R29) to produce a wonderfully colored image, I hope that this technique will help save you some money.
Now you may notice that I said that this only works with certain copic colors and that is true, some colors seem to evade this technique (for reasons maybe someone else knows???). My best advice to you is to test this technique at your LSS or art store before you buy a color.
Well, today should be busy as I have my usual 9 hours of class on tuesdays. I also hope to a Spinning class tonight! Spinning is one of my favorite gym classes, it is basically an amped up stationary bike, but you pedal hard and do all sorts of 'moves' and you can even burn up to 1000 calories in an hour (my hear rate monitor usually tells me that I've burned between 500-750)!
ETA: I just took my test and I feel really good about it! So partly in honor of that I went over to Frugalities.com and placed a little order. I am constantly debating placing an order there and with 49% off till March 24th and the ability to order 12 packs of Twinkling H20s for only 18 dollars, I decided to jump the fence! Just wanted to pass on the fabulous deal :)
I am a full-time student! I have been scrapbooking since I was 12 years old but have only recently become a stamper. I am always looking for design teams, so if my work interests you please contact me.
If you want to contact me directly please PM me on SCS @ Ebeart!
