Hi Blog Friends!
I've worked out the issues I had with my messy alcohol ink! LOL
I went to work today to see if what I thought I did wrong was the problem & sure enough!!!
I'm telling you, this is a GREAT CLASS & if you want to learn more about coloring,
&/or making your images POP & look FABULOUS, go for this class with Kathy!!!
So, like I said, I figured out the problem after Kathy came over & commented on my work.
I wasn't letting my card stock dry out before doing the nappy rag technique!
I pulled the Neenah Card Stock out to try again today!
I got this paper just for this class & found it on Amazon, as recommended by Jennifer McGuire,
& it was listed on the supplies recommended for this class also.
***Stay tuned as I have a little hint about preparing for these classes,
or The 30 Day Coloring Challenge, which I hear is coming up soon!
So, here is what I did today:
These are the little Gnomes I did for today. I did the nappy rag technique on their beards! SO CUTE!
I added lines & dots & just had a blast playing with these images!
Spectrum Noir Markers & Prisma Colored Pencils, along with a White Gel Pen!
Here's the other piece I did:
(This one is my FAVORITE!)
I used the same supplies on this one as above.
I did the nappy rag technique on the top of the mushroom.
(If you click on the pictures, you can get a close up of all the details!)
I also did dots & lines!
I used lines to create a halo around this little scene, doing hatching & cross-hatching.
Hope you like!!!
for classes like this & for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge coming up:
This is what I did for this class, even though it was only 3 days.
I used a 3 in 1- Mini Crock Pot!
I like to get a kitchen tool I'd like to have for Christmas & this was it this year,
although I wanted it for the Christmas meal.
Sadly, I had to send the first one back, a different brand, as it didn't work.
But, you can cook a main dish, a side & even a dessert in this thing!
For one night of this class, I had meat loaf, green beans & herbed roasted potatoes for dinner.
And there were left overs for the next night!
Each little crock holds 2-4 servings.
Tonight I made U.S. Senate Bean Soup---The recipe is from the U.S. Senate restaurant since the beginning of the 20th Century. It is so good & SO SIMPLE!
The other crock is holding Corn Bread, using a Jiffy Corn Bread Mix.
I am NOT a bean soup person or a corn bread person, but my husband likes them & so, I made them for him, but I LOVED THEM! This is actually the second time I've made these.
Here is where I got the recipes:
I found this recipe book on Amazon.
I've tried several recipes from it & EVERY recipe is SO FULL OF FLAVOR!
The calories aren't listed for each recipe, but the recipes are healthy, & even diabetics can use them.
One of the authors is diabetic himself.
So, are you ready now for
The 30 Day Coloring Challenge coming up???
Kathy will be announcing it soon!
Sweet Dreams in Color!
