Friday Video Links

Note: To enter the giveaway from OCL please leave a comment on yesterday's post.

Happy Friday! Wow this week has flown by. I promised yesterday that I would have a tutorial today for coloring the little Christmas sea-turtle that was on my card.

Well, I have an even better idea than showing you the step by step as pictures, I actually made a quick video. Don't expect these all the time, but I hope that you find this one useful.

All the coloring techniques I used on this turtle are basic, but still important to see how it works. If you can't seem to get it to look right then just keep practicing.



Also, a couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was on the TV show Scrapbook Memories showing how to alter objects to make them match for a mini-album for my brother. Well, here is that segment for your viewing pleasure as well (again, thank you Lori and Sharon!). I hope you find both these videos useful. Have a great weekend and keep coloring!

I was the 152'nd comment yesterday and thought you probably would never get to reading it so I will post it again here.;) Would you have the ability to put your videos up on something other than (or also with) UTube? Here in Turkey Utube has been blocked by the gov't because apparently they didn't like something that was posted. Perhaps others are in the same situation as myself. Thanks for your lovely tutorials. I am learning so much.

WOW, Marianne, You are wonderful! These videos are awesome! Thank you for posting these! I am glad to see that I am using my Copics correctly, except for the outside coloring (water), I wasn't going further out on my paper when beginning with the colorless like I should be, so this was VERY helpful to me!

{{On a personal note, I have to tell you that you have the most beautiful nails and hands! I wish mine looked like yours!}}

Oh, and your voice is so soothing, IF I wasn't so interested in what you were doing and saying you would have lulled me to sleep with your voice! Awesome Job, girl!

Love your new haircut in the Scrapbooking Memories Show, too! SO ADORABLE!

Still excited for the bubbles class!! Have a great weekend!

Oh, I love the video coloring Bubbles, Marianne! It's great to see your coloring in person (sort of) and pick up some tips. Thanks so much!

What a privilege to get to view
these great videos. We are spoiled
by all this free knowledge. What
can we do to repay you? If you
want make an online series for
a fee I would pay a nice sum for
the classes:-)
