My love affair with Prismacolor pencils...

Image
I adore Prismacolor pencils. I especially love new ones. They have that same sort of scent that a new box of Crayolas has. And while we're on the Crayola subject, I must confess that I bought five - count'em - five big boxes when they announced that they were changing colors. haven't touched them. The tips are just a perfect as they day they came off the assembly line. But I digress....
This morning I saw a post on Technique Junkies about Prismacolors, so of course I had to throw in my 2 cents. Those of you who know me personally know that I always have an opinion. May not be a good one, but it's all mine.
Anyway, I got several e-mails about a technique I described so am posting a down and dirty, quick and rough sample in a mini tutorial. Please excuse the rough coloring. I was in a hurry (That's my middle name – Candice Iwasinahurry Windham).

Step 1. This is just the basic stamped image. The image is a retired Stampin'Up! stamp.



Step 2. I colored the darkest part…

Finally!!!

Don't know what the posting problem was, but here are two tags and a Christmas card made with Artistic Outpost stamps. The images from AO are soooooooo cool! Gotta love 'em!



Has it been that long?

I can't believe my last post was April 30. What a terrible blogger I am!

In all fairness, things have been hoppin' here at the Windham household. Larry has been on a world tour...well, Minnesota anyway, and is now in yet an another band, which means we see each other only in passing during early evening.

Roxi and I had a soft opening of our new online store, RockCandy Designs, at Artiscape in Jackson, Tennessee this past weekend and it was a great success. We'll be up and running online at www.rockcandydesignsonline.com on August 1. We carry hard-to-find items for the mixed media artist and are stocked with the trinkets and treasures we use in our own art.

Roxi and I will also be teaching a cool class at the Memphis Botanic Garden, Saturday, July 26. The all-day class will feature a two-part project which will include a beautiful book made with glassine envelopes and tags with a collaged cigar box to hold it. Check out the class list at www.memphisbotanicgarden.com.
