Sneak Peek from Linnie Blooms

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.

240Next, I tried adding a second color. Blending the two colors wasn’t possible, but it colored over the original color well.

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.
