WHEW! Normally I’d have my post in the AM but with my hubby off this week I am so not on task! Its just weird! I do love him being home though Maybe after another week or two it wouldn’t be the case… he goes back to work on Monday :/
Last night we had our first Evening Edition of our Wednesday LIVE Color Along! Big YAY to everyone who tuned in! We had a lot of Aussie peeps which was awesome and even Copic Marker stopped in with a shout out. I call it a big success!
For this week I colored Big Wishes Mae, a new Clear Stamp set at Some Odd Girl, and focused the lighting on the big ol candle on the cake, So it looked like the candle was the only light source in the room.
Yesterday I had the post up with the colors I intended to use but after doing a dry run with my idea I realized I needed to make tweaks and I actually had out too many. So here is the actual Color List from the video…
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E04, RV95, R12
Hair: E21, E32, E25, E27, V99, YR30, YR31
Cake: RV52, RV63, RV66, BG75, BG23
Clothes: BG75, BG78
Light Colors: YR30, YR31
Shadow Colors: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
You can go back and watch any of our Color Along videos at any time on our Ustream Channel. Amongst my ramblings I do try to explain what I’m doing and why so I hope you find them helpful in your coloring. If you do end up coloring along with ANY of our videos please come and leave a link in the comments of any of the Color Along posts so I can check it out.
Here’s the schedule for the rest of the month.
If you have any suggestions on images or specific coloring topics don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments too. On January 30 I’ll have the schedule for Feb and March. I’m going to be switching back and forth on start times from now on as well to let more people have a chance to join in Live.
I hope to see you next week!
