Promarker Class with Debbi

 My Friend Susy and I attended a class at The Papeterie in Aberdeen today with Debbi Glennie. She is such a master of all things Letraset and we had decided that we needed a little more confidence when putting pen to paper with our Promarkers.

We were not disappointed.  What a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.  Tuition, great company, a sharing of knowledge with a little crafty gossip thrown in.  Who could ask for more on a Saturday afternoon?

Here are my efforts. 

The first image was stamped in  a light (forgotten colour) shade of Momento inkpad and the second was stamped in black. I found it quite tricky to keep with in the lines of the light coloured stamping.  Debbi says that success is due to practice (something that I have said thousands of times as a teacher) but I was a little annoyed with myself for not achieving perfection at the first attempt!

This close up view tells me that I need to go back over this to blend the bottom of the fringe.  Confession time - The second image was meant to be wholly coloured with greys.  I absentmindedly picked up the browns - told you we were chatting a lot!  However, I embraced my mistake and added a little accent of red on the heart hairslide. See - another one of those "mistakes" that  turn out to be "happy accidents".

So, for me, the class was a great success because I am now determined to "practise" to achieve "perfection".

Now, tell me Lilian, how many new promarkers did you end up buying! Lol! Enjoy your colouring, it's very therapeutic. xx

I have only self taught myself to colour with promarkers but some colours are a little sketchy for me, like how you shaded her dress. What colour did you use for the lightest areas of her dress?
I'm not very practised at colouring people and hair looks a little scary too.
You've got it sorted by the looks of it though, great work :0)
