Tuesday Morning Sketches #101

Good Morning Crafters - I hope everyone (in the US) had wonderful 4th of July.

It's another fabulous day at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Melissa created a wonderful sketch today. Something a lot easier than last week's sketch. Thanks to everyone that played last week. I look forward to seeing your creations this week. We also have a great sponsor:


They were generous and gave us some images to play with. I selected this basket of apples because when I got this image I was so intimidated to color it. Red is a very hard color to get right. I either got it too dark or too light. I tried with Copics and I am just not successful with them. This past month I have been stalking True's blog and watching any and all of her coloring tutorials. They have really helped me. I have also spent the last two days with my friend Angela (who happens to be Copic Certified). Although I did not color with Copics, I was glad to sit with an amazing colorist and just get some real-time feedback.

Well in this image I took my lead in coloring from True. I used her card as my inspiration. I even tried to copy her grass. I thought my grass came out okay, but I will continue to practice. That's what I am learning...I tell my students this all the time and have I listened to myself, "Practice makes perfect!" I also wanted to try doing my ribbon a bit differently. I love how these came out!!

Practice makes perfect - my kids parrot that to me all the time, but boy, sometimes it's hard to remember myself. Real-time feedback must be super-helpful. Much easier to have help to see where you can improve as you're doing it! I love the pearl centres on your wee flowers :) They're just the right embellishment - apples & gingham are such a great pair!
