WLCA Wrap Up: Picnic Mae


*** I’ve been down and out with the flu since Monday and my fam since last week so this week’s color along is getting pushed back a week to when I can sit at my desk for an hour***

Here’s the colors I used for this No-Lines edition of the color along

Skin: YR000, YR00, E11, E21, E04, R11, R12, R34
Hair: E30, E31, E34, E37, E59
Clothes: Y32, Y35, Y38, Y26, E55, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67
Basket: E53, E55, E57
Shadows: BV20, BV23, BV25

I had to put an hour and a half cap on this one, I knew it would take longer. You can see that on my Ustream Channel (I can’t direct link to the video but you’ll see it in the video list). 

I used Xpress It for the paper and with as much color as I was laying down I really regret it. It got the dreaded gunks so I couldn’t tweak the shading as much as I wanted. If you don’t layer as much as I do then the wonderful blendability of the Xpress It will be great for you but I lay it on thick.

Here’s the upcoming schedule…

May 22 – 1pm EST – Pirate Kaylee
May 29 – 8pm EST – Dandelion Fairy
June 5 – 1pm EST – School Mae

If you colored along on this one I hope you’ll share your own No-Lines coloring!

    She is fab! I found “no lines” to be a real challenge, but I enjoyed giving it a try. Hope you all are much better. 🙂

  • Mary Walker says:

    How did you make it no lines? She looks like a painting.

    • Kristy says:

      I used Photoshop to lower the opacity of the line work 🙂

  • Jeannean says:

    Here’s my try at no lines posted to the Ning world. I used Pixie and it was challenging, but fun!! Thanks for the tutorial!

    Just gorgeous. Like an oil painting!
