Fun with My Big Girl Crayons - Copic Markers!

Sometimes I get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and just need to slow down for a bit to collect myself and free my mind. So, that's what I decided to do.

At the Weekend Memories crop this past weekend I didn't teach any classes or spend a lot of time getting pictures printed or projects packed. Instead of stressing after a long, tiring week, I decided that I was going to spend my time at the crop doing something that I have loved since I was a child -- COLORING!

It had been so long since I'd colored anything. At first I was worried that I might be really rusty and someone would walk by and see how awful my blending or color combos would be. Then I got over it and printed out digital stamps from one of my favorite digital stamp illustrators, Krista at Saturated Canary.

Then I grabbed my big girl crayons (Copic Markers), my Daylight lamp, my Mac & headphones and headed to the crop to color.

Oh boy what fun I had! And it was so relaxing!

Here are a few of the things that I colored. First up is YoYo.

Hair: E35, E39, E47, E49, Y23; Skin: E11, E21, E51; Eyes: E31, E35, E37; 
Lips: R20, R22, RV39; Skirt: V04, V06, V09; Shirt/Scarf: BG05, BG09, BG13

This fun one is called Frizzy Jinx.

Skin: E00, E21, E51l; Eyes: YG03, YG17, G14; Hair: Y21, YR21, YR23; 
Red: R24, R27, R29; Green: YG05, YG07, G05; Brown: E50, E53, E57; Beige: E50, E53

And this last lovely is LaLa.

Hair: C1, C3, C5, C7; Purple: V12, V15, V17

Like I said, it's been a long time, so my blending is a bit rusty. But it was so much fun. I look forward to breaking out my big girl crayons to color again soon!
