I was asked to be a guest designer for Linnie Blooms in December. I am so excited because this is a new manufacturer who creates fabric shapes, albums and other products perfect for mixed media art.
I wanted to see how Copic markers would work with the muslin cut outs, so I sacrificed one of the shapes as a demo piece.
First, I colored the entire shape with a Copic Sketch Marker. I was surprised at how well it colored … there were no streaks and the color blended nicely.
I used the Copic Blending Solution pen to create dots on the bird … it worked almost as well as it does on paper!
Finally, I used the air brushing system and a plastic stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to airbrush a design. It turned out beautifully and none of my colors ran or got muddy.
I’ll be back on Dec. 9 and Dec. 30 to showcase my Guest Designer creations! I can’t wait.
